Pros: I have been using PC Recruiter for as long as I have been recruiting, for about 6 years now. I used one other candidate tracking system about a year ago when helping another recruiter on a project. I like how PCR is an extension of me. I understand how most of the functions work. The tech hotline team members are the best. The training person is awesome, too. They are constantly updating the system. The system has never let me down. The system itself never goes down either.

The updates are done late at night. With PCR, I can keep track of all my e-mail communications. I use the PCR mail integrated right there in the system. Emails are automatically linked/attached to each candidate.

It's an easy program to learn and there are countless ways to access the information you need. I find PCR to be an intuitive system. When a new version was launched a few years ago, I felt like my suggestions were heard as they were fine-tuning the new edition.

I am a successful recruiter because I am efficient on PCRecruiter.

When a client needed proof that I submitted a candidate before they hired him, I was able to pull together all the dates, emails and history needed to get paid for the placement.

It's a great all-around system and I can't imagine working without it.

Mac for life. PCRecruiter for life.

Cons: The scheduling feature of the program is confusing, especially when it comes to different time zones. Some of my clients prefer I send a meeting notice to them so they can accept it and move it to their calendar. I haven't really mastered using this function or felt confident enough to use the meeting scheduler on a regular basis.

I think it would be cool to be able to color code or customize how different positions look on the system. Just like you can upload a company logo or a candidate's headshot...it would be nice to be able to color code positions with a wrench for a technician role for example, or a dollar sign for a controller job. I am a visual person and would like to make the live roles look different than the jobs that are filled, closed or on hold.

Some of the functionality is over my head. But I know that training is available for every feature of the system. All I would have to do is schedule it with representative. She's great.

When I used PCRecruiter in my past working for another company, I didn't like how other recruiters could go in and "steal" an active candidate who I was working with, without my permission. I think this issue was due to the fact that 6+ recruiters were competing for the same talent in this shared database and some recruiters lacked integrity and manners. There was also no enforcement of a fair and equitable system to share the database.

Overall: Experiencing success as a first-time recruiter within 90 days of my start date (2012) and growing my volume of placements to consistently earn the #1 or #2 spot in the firm.

Experiencing success right out of the gate after launching my own recruiting firm in Feb 2016.

Pros: -Ability to customize name, company, and position record layouts to optimize work flow

-Ability to show/hide all menu options and arrange as needed

-Built in email client (PCRMail) integrates directly with database, so all correspondence is recorded automatically under the record's activities. Can easily move from email to client's record in database

-Can configure multiple email aliases for each user and assign custom SMTP settings to each respective alias (useful for dividing marketing and transactional emails between separate ESP's)

-Live Chat support allows for much quicker response times to issues and support staff is great to work with

Cons: -Limited email marketing functionality (can't send bulk marketing emails to a list of companies, can't schedule a future email blast to send out on a certain date/time, no way to configure a default bulk sending dedicated IP for marketing efforts, spotty "resend check" feature that only checks bulk email correspondence but skips all direct email activity, etc.)

-Can't search for record activities (i.e. sent someone an email) and record data (i.e. in the state of Texas) at the same time. Cumbersome process of having to do one search, save those results to a list, do the other search, and filter by that list.

-PCRMail has been notoriously problematic at times over the years (address book issues, email encoding issues, spell check problems, inbox refresh problems, frame sizing issues, etc)

-Unable to search rollup lists by rollup code (even though rollup codes are used in all advanced searches)

-No way to unmerge merged records

Vendor Response

by Main Sequence Technology on January 16, 2019

Since this review was posted, we have updated our bulk-email features and can now schedule future sends, use dedicated accounts for marketing emails, and handle resends/bounces more effectively.

Other improvements have been made to address some of Scott's previous concerns. And of course many other upgrades have been made in the past year+ of time! We are always listening to our users and making changes based on their feedback.

Pros: Pros: Flexibility, East of Use, Cost, reliability, up-time, customer support, technical support, innovation, connectivity

Cons: Cons: None as long as you are willing to learn the products capabilities and spend the time necessary to set it up

Overall: I have used PCRecruiter for over 10 years now. The product takes some time to learn, but once you invest the time to learn it's functions, it provides an amazing solution for the recruiting function. I have used this product in three different companies and implemented it with two clients at the corporate HR level. Because of its flexibility, PCRecruiter can be just about anything you need it to be... and MORE.

The training department and technical support have always been able to get me and my team back on track when we have had issues. Up time is extremely important to us and our clients, and PCRecruiter has never failed us. I can think of only one time in the past 10 years where we have had a system failure that lasted about two hours. The product is very reliable.

You need to spend the time necessary to learn the product. It's not necessarily a con, but more an investment. You will get as much out of this product as you put in. Spend the time with the training department and implementation team to explain exactly what you are trying to do and they can make it happen. Another option is to ask them for best practices... either way, if you are willing to learn how to use the product, it will pay off tremendously.

Pros: Flexibility, East of Use, Cost, reliability, up-time, customer support, technical support, innovation, connectivity

Cons: None as long as you are willing to learn the products capabilities and spend the time necessary to set it up correct the first time.

Pros: Flexible and can be customized to fit user needs. Many options. Internet based so can be accessed from anywhere.

Cons: Sometimes customization requires a lot of adjustment to work just depending on what you are trying to do and reporting can be a little confusing until you spend some time on it. We have been using PCR8 still so some of this may have been improved in V9.

Overall: Our agency has been working with the PCRecruiter software since 2011 when we adapted it to our use for job placement services in the public workforce system. We started our on a totally paper-driven filing system. With our focus of helping prepare job seekers for the interview process and recruiting for employers to fill their job orders, we needed a software tool that could provide the recruiting tools but also an electronic file management system to track data on the job seekers and their activity. PCRecruiter provided all of that and then some with a little help from the MainSequence software development team. Since our use extended beyond the basic focus of the system it took a fair amount of customizing profiles, activities, reports, and related to get it right to where we needed the software to be. Fortunately PCR allows for this. You can customize a large portion of the software to meet your individual needs. The support techs were very helpful in creating our first evolution and we have continued to refine our database since that time. I think I've only stumped the techs once or twice but they eventually uncovered the solution to my issue/question. Once we pioneered the system for our workforce needs, several other partner agencies and employers also picked up on this great tool and began using it when they saw how effective it was with data management. The speed at which we can pull demographic data and get a snapshot of current recruiting patterns is great. Yes, the costs associated can be tough depending on your number of users but this is true for any of the top recruiting/electronic file management systems. It takes a little getting used to at first, especially some of the Admin functions, but once you have the basics down the software becomes very intuitive. Rarely have we found something that we could not get the software to do. Overall, an essential workforce/recruiting software tool to help efficiently maintain information.

Pros: PC Recruiter is, hands down, the best recruiting CRM software I have found on the market. Its functionality is way beyond any of its competitors. As a CRM consultant, I have high expectations for CRM software, and this program has exceeded them. In fact, I found that there were a whole lot more resources than I had anticipated: easy-to-use plugins for Outlook and Chrome, extensive options to communicate with clients and candidates, and a robust database that is able to take all the information I need, put it where it is easily accessible, and then be able to get a comprehensive "picture" of what I need to know. I have used other programs and the general attitude of the other vendors is something like this: "Here's what it is . . . here's how it works . . . it's up to you to figure out how you can make this work for your business." Using spreadsheets and Outlook was more efficient than what they offered - which is what I had to use in the past with certain software programs. When it comes to PCRecruiter, it's as if they asked me what I needed and then built a great program . . . and then asked me what my "dream" software would include . . . and then they met and exceeded my expectations. The salesperson asked me a lot of questions and then made sure the software and my eventual training addressed my needs, rather than talking at me about its capabilities. After trying the "best" programs and, frankly, finding no comparison to PCRecruiter, I don't want any of my competition to use it - I like having a clear advantage.

Cons: There isn't anything I don't like about PCRecruiter. It would be great if they gave the software away for free, but with the price being lower than a lot of their competitors . . . again, I can't complain about anything with PCRecruiter.

Recommendations to other buyers: I found that a lot of the software out there does not have a easy way to work with LinkedIn, Outlook, and importing resumes in general. There is nothing worse than having to input a whole bunch of data when you can see what you need on the screen and you can't import it. Also, find a software program that is specifically built for recruiters and not just modified for certain industries. (Zoho?!?) In addition, test out the functionality of the programs and don't rush the process - many of the salespeople want to get you into a deal without allowing you to really use the program. Lastly, watch out for the "big programs" that say that they have millions of users - many of them have limited functions and capabilities. When you figure out your processes and then compare them to the programs out there, you will find that many of these programs will make you do a whole lot of work that other programs have optimized that work.

Pros: Very easy to use - simple one click or drag and drop features make it incredibly efficient. Pricing model is based on users and NOT number of employees which is critical. ATS's should not have a per employee pricing model, period. Aesthetics are awesome, navigating through the platform is pretty straight forward.

Cons: As far as being an ATS there are a couple of very key features it lacks which are basic components of most, if not all, ATS'. 1) Currently it does not provide a way to pre-qualify candidates when they first apply to a position. Most ATS' offer front end questions to help determine if candidates possess the minimum requirements which helps the recruiter focus on those who meet those requirements first. 2) Automation emails can be sent, however setting it up is a little clunky - once you get through it, however, it works great. 3) This is more of a desired feature, but there should be an option to set a delayed time for automation emails. For example, when a candidate you're not interested in is interviewed, when you move them in to the appropriate folder in the pipeline to let them know they're no longer being considered it sends out the email immediately, there should be an option for a 24 hour to 48 hour delay.

Overall: Overall, as a recruiter software, I'm not sure there's a better product on the market. There needs to be some basic features to the platform, however, if PCRecruiter is going to compete in the ATS market.

Highly Functional, very adaptable and great customer support.

Pros: I am the IT and Business Consultant to a medium sized Recruiter / Placement Business that specializes in a niche market across USA. We have used the web based version of PCRecruiter for 8 years since 2008. As a medium sized business we did not want to fund a custom built program but needed the flexibility to be able to adapt the system in a similar fashion to having our own purpose built system and internal developers. I first evaluated PCRecruiter (PCR) against several competing products in mid 2008 and found it to be the most versatile for our purpose. The only program of it's type that delivered everything we needed, plus expansion possibilities, was PCRecruiter. Periodically I conduct a similar review for the business and have yet to find a system that offers an advantage over PCRecruiter. In the 8 years since we started using PCRecruiter we have expanded the system with several customized modules which have been possible within the system due to it's flexible architecture. Finally I would like to make special mention of the customer support which has proven to be second to none.

Cons: I don't really have a dislike about the product or vendor. You usually only have dislikes when the service and product are not up to scratch.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try to work out what your future needs will be and whether the system will be able to adapt and evolve with you. As an IT and Business Consultant I have found that businesses always change and every change triggers a new change!

Pros: already had good powerful recruiting tools before they started actively asking for suggestions. They put in a request and suggestions forum and actually listen & prioritize the changes/improvements that we users have asked for. Not 100% of them, but many of them. Their tech support is super responsive and helps with individual problems. Very customizable for how you want to have it work with you and what you want it to show you.

Cons: It's got a LOT of bells and whistles I don't need, but it makes it useful for bigger recruiting organizations with more complex needs than I have as a small recruiting firm. I do wish some of the tasks were a little easier to accomplish with fewer clicks. Once data is in PCR it's harder to manipulate it than if it was , say, in an Excel spreadsheet. I do miss that type of flexibility.

Overall: I used PCRecruiter as an employee and then when I started my own company I chose them based on my experience and happiness with the database. I didn't even shop other options as I knew what this could do and wouldn't have any learning curve.

Pros: Easy to use, reliable, scale-able, customizing options galore, can be conformed to fit your style, and is easy to use 'on the fly'. For beginners and advanced users, there is excellent training available. If you're stumped on an issue there is excellent LIVE support available. And these are knowledgeable support people who understand our business.

Cons: I honestly don't have a complaint!

Overall: I've used Main Sequence's PCR for many years and it is truly the recruiter's companion. Do you think you have what it takes to bill a million plus? You might, yet not without the right tracking software. I should know because I've billed many millions using this system and this is the system that made it possible. High billing activity takes a system that is easy to use, scale-able to large volumes of activity yet useful for part timers, saves time, performs solidly, and has the backing of a knowledgeable support team. I've explored the options and nothing compares.

Recommendations to other buyers: I recommend using both the Web version and the Portal versions in unison. It's the best of both worlds if you enjoy using MS Outlook.

Outstanding value and the features are world class.

Pros: I have used the biggest and most popular ATS systems in over 10 years as a corporate recruiter in Fortune 500 environments. Now that I am an independent headhunter, I am amazed at how much value and features you can get out of a smaller ATS like PCRecruiter. Some of these include being able to upload information and profile pictures in a few quick steps.

The most amazing thing about PCR is the tech support. You can call and get an immediate resolution to almost any issue. If it can't be resolved right away they make a point to get it done in the matter of hours, not days and weeks.

Lastly, the price is right!

Cons: There is not much I don't like as the software is very user-friendly. About the only thing is being able to change the color scheme.

Pros: 15+ years of using PCRecruiter. Ease of use. It has enough features and organizational structure to allow you to create pockets or folders of candidates, but it does not buckle under the weight of having TOO many ways to categorize and organize candidates. When I have questions, I am able to get help from the PCR support team nearly immediately, and their support is thorough.

Cons: For me, the icons which are used for functionality buttons are not as intuitive as they could be. As in, by looking at the button, I don't automatically think of the functionality it represents. On the flip side, I have used PCRecruiter for over 15 years, and though the icons aren't what I would choose, I quickly learned.

Overall: We are a boutique recruiting firm, and PCRecruiter has enabled us to quickly set up our candidate database. For over 15 years, we have been able to effectively search and organize our candidate and client database.

Pros: Been using this software for 15+ years. Absolutely love it - reminds me of everything I need to do during the day, which in recruiting is always difficult to keep up with. Also helped me to obtain fees when companies disputed my timeline on sending them candidates because the notes and activities are so clear. Very easy to use. They keep up with new helpful additions to the software.

Cons: Some of the applications are a bit tedious but then I just don't use them if they aren't absolutely necessary. Everything normally used is terrific. Wish it would match candidates to jobs.

Overall: This software makes the recruiters life much easier. Reminders, pathways to follow to placements, numbers, etc. Searches for existing candidates and jobs are very easy. Tech support is terrific when needed - which isn't very often. Wouldn't be able to do a complete recruiting job if not for PCR

Pros: The best features of PCR are the "roll ups". The software seems to be built around the roll ups and they provide a lot of functionality, some automation and decent organization ability.

Cons: It lacks a true CRM feature. The reporting is not great. Every name entered into the system is a candidate. There is no delineation between candidates and company contacts which creates problems.

Overall: Middle of the road. It does the basic things well and is a good database to store information. Outside of that, there is no CRM functionality and isn't super useful from a sales, sales tracking, leads or reporting perspective.

Vendor Response

by Main Sequence Technology on June 03, 2019

Candidates and Contacts are delineated by the 'Status' field in PCR... a name can be a candidate or a contact depending on that setting. This facilitates situations where someone is hired at a company and then becomes a hiring contact there and allows for fluid movement between statuses without creating duplicate records.

Pros: PCR is highly configurable so you can set it up to match the way you work.

The integration with other systems - especially LinkedIn capture is a great asset.

Good support in getting things set-up.

You own your data and have easy access to it if there is ever a need for a back-up or to change systems.

Cons: Very minor issue - could have better sales call tracking with visual follow-up lists.

Overall: One of the most important benefits is consistency. In 5+ years of using PCR, we've never had any downtime. This was such a huge improvement from our old ATS systems that would go down for hours at a time throughout the year.

The next biggest benefit is constant improvement. Especially with integrated systems like LinkedIn. I never need to contact PCR to let them know something has changed and their system needs to be updated. They are on top of it and updates usually come within 24 hours.

Cons: It takes a little while to get used to the system and to learn all the different modules.. it's very robust. Saying that, the support team and training team are very responsive and help so much when I need to learn something knew or if I have support issue it has been resolved quickly 100% of the time.

Pros: Usability - the automation of the system is great. Spend the time setting things up and you won't regret it. Move the candidates through the process (Drag and drop) and relevant messages are sent out. Outlook connector is a great integration for communication tracking. Support are very responsive.

Cons: Initial setup takes significant time (for one person) when transferring from a bespoke system. Not completely unexpected, but was surprised it was so difficult to set up the system the way we wanted it in the test environment, and then wanted to transfer over live (most recent) data. Worked out in the end, but it was different from they way I thought the process would go.

Overall: Overall, very good. Initial time setting everything off pays off in great time-saving later for the team.

Pros: I like how you can capture information from other sites LinkedIn and resumes vs having to manually enter names, employer, title, contact information etc. I also like all the reporting features for tracking metrics and that all emails, as long as the contact is in PCR, will be linked to the appropriate record. This makes searching for prior conversations very easy.

Cons: Prior to PCR we had a very simple software, so the hardest part for our team was learning all the amazing, time saving features available with PCR as well as the best workflow process and keeping the daily activity levels up. There is a learning curve, but well worth the time upfront to make sure you are utilizing the software to the best of its ability for your business.

Pros: Everything about it is a time saver designed so that you don't have to go back and forth from PCR to LinkedIn, which is fantastic. Huge improvement overall but . . .

Cons: The only problem I noticed with this version was that - despite what the training video says - it does not give you the option of adding a name to a rollup "on the fly". Instead, you have to designate the rollup in the default settings. The video specifically mentions that this is not the case anymore, but I just downloaded this latest version 5 minutes ago and there's no option to choose a rollup on the fly. I imagine that will be fixed soon, however, and when it is it will be perfect.

Overall: It's a time saver, helps me stay organized, and ultimately helps me put together more deals! It is also affordable and priced correctly.

Pros: * PCR has the best support team I have encountered in IT

* Training is always readily available

* Excellent uptime - System has not been down since we have gone live

* Feature-rich - capable of all needed recruiting functions

* Open API well documented - helpful business partners

Cons: * System still has a somewhat windows legacy navigation feel about it

* Could do with some improvements in reporting

* Lacks Javier API

Overall: My overall experience is very favorable. I continually review this software against other products including those that are more expensive and this remains my preferred solution. While others may appear more slick, feature for feature I have yet to find software in this price range that I prefer. Customer support and training are without equal.

Comments: Setting up a system like this is always difficult. We found that, with the exception of some custom forms that weren't completed to spec, this system was easy to setup and nice to use.

Pros: Once PCRecruiter is setup, it is easy to use. It has many great features, like a memory of what you accessed last, so you don't have to remember which candidates you were working with. If you use the integration with Outlook, most recruiters won't have to use a separate browser. The ability to write custom SQL queries and the smart merge capability of the import process are also very nice.

Cons: The interface is a little dated. I believe they are working on updates though. If you hire them to create custom forms or applications, it feels like you get a contractor who may not know what they should. Their other support staff are great though. The in program email system could use some work. Setting the system up to pass through Office365 exchange servers with a generic email account, didn't work out. We ended up spinning our own exchange server to handle it.

Pros: It's easy to use and there are many search options that allow you to find companies and names easily.

Cons: Some search capabilities, such as duplicate name or company search, could be much better. They also NEED to install an option to customize the layout, like PCR 8 used to offer. The "standard" layout they require you to use does not fit my needs.

Overall: Overall PCRecruiter has given me a good place to keep track of my companies and candidates, and it's user-friendliness have allowed me to train employees in a short period of time.

Thank you for the review! The layouts on most screens can be customized (particularly the main name, company, and job records). If you need assistance with the customization, reach out to our support team and they'll be glad to work it out with you!

Pros: Probably the best feature for me is that it can be customized/modified for ease of use. I'm sure not two companies work exactly the same way, and the database(s) are modifiable so that you may capture important information overall and metrics that are important to YOU.

Cons: The more advanced functions are not as user-friendly as I would like them to be. Also, our training was less than optimal.

Overall: Coming from a Resumate program (cue prehistoric dinosaur sounds), this is SO much better than what we were using. There are some problems, and online documentation is definitely NOT as good as it could be. That said, we've really enjoyed using PCRecruiter, and have had good customer service from Sales and some of the other customer service people.

Pros: I use PCR every day. Always PCR catches up the trend of technology and has new features. Once you learn how to use it, it is very easy and friendly to use. I also like the training system. When we request training at our site, a trainer comes to our office. The trainer is always very friendly and knowledgeable. After the training, always he follows up with our questions as well. Great service!

Cons: There are so many features. It is probably a great thing, but it is hard to catch up with new features of technologies.

Overall: All experience using PCR so far is great! PCR is a very nice program, company, and staff! The call center is helpful as well. It is so worth to use it at our company.

Pros: Ramp up time on use is very user friendly.

Ease of looking up in "Help"

Response time from PC Recruiter on help is excellent

Willingness to work diligently with us on a large Data conversion

Good product value for costs

Cons: Took more months than anticipated on data conversion. If you have a older version software, than needs lot changes to convert, be prepared for 6 months to convert. We had anticipated 3 months.

Overall: We had an old database/recruiting software that was not cloud base. Having cloud based software has made much easier use for our user. PC Recruiter has bee very responsive to our needs and also quick in response time when having a problem or question.

Comments: My organization is an RPO company in which we engage multiple clients. In most of these engagements, we bring an ATS solution. We use PC Recruiter as our primary system. We have worked with the team from PC Recruiter for almost a year now and have had great success with their ATS. Overall we are very satisfied with the functionality and features of the system.

Pros: The greatest "Pro" that I can point to is the team at PC Recruiter. They have been extremely responsive to our needs and have been there every step of the way as we configure and deliver their system. They have also been very willing to receive feedback and develop upgrades that have been "game changers" for the way we work. The Customer Service team is fantastic. Very knowledgeable and timely in their responses.

Cons: Some of the system terminology and field names are confusing. The system is not overly intuitive. There is a bit of a learning curve if you want to leverage all of the bells and whistles that PCR has, but the Customer Service team is very helpful in helping you in your education.

Pros: An easy to use, easy to navigate software program. Creating roll ups and search options really could not be easier. Very nice options for searching with keywords, easy sorting functions. I like that PCR is user friendly even for those who dont have a lot of experience with software of any kind. The updates and improvements are continual. Pretty quick customer support when running into issues.

Cons: Sometimes it is very glitchy. There seem to be periods where its find for a long while and then a few days of glitch.

Overall: I enjoy PCR, I use it literally all day every day. This is a very effective tool to have and build a great database while being able to purge what is not useful.

Pros: Customizeability (Is that a word)? You can customize the software pretty easily. For instance I have a field where I can tag someone a "walking placement". Then I can search a city for all of those that I tagged with that term. There is so much you can do.

Cons: I am concerned that support for 8 will go away. I've been using the old school version for over a decade and I don't want to learn 9. If I have to I guess I will but would rather keep it old school.

Overall: I live on PCR. It's my job. Don't know what I would do with out it.

Pros: PCRecruiter has much more flexibility than the previous database that we used. I am able to keep my job orders more organized, easily share with team members, and communicate quickly with hiring managers. The support staff is always extremely helpful and truly worked with our team to personalize PCR to meet our processes. I appreciate that the product is ever-improving.

Cons: It is difficult to see complete activity notes without opening each individual note. The location of some customization features can be a bit confusing. I think that the software is so powerful, that the average user doesn't have a chance to learn all of the features.

Overall: Our company was seeking a more powerful database and one that would allow greater collaboration. If all of our team members use PCRecruiter as it is intended, then this is definitely achieved.

Pros: I have used this software since the inception. It was a thick client, that installed on our desktops and shared on our network. They have continued to develop new features and the launch of the HTML version was revolutionary. This team is responsive and always looking for ways to improve their product.

Ease of use, import features from social networking and so much more.

Cons: Very little. I would have to say that every time a problem crops up (which is seldom) they solve it quickly and responsively.

Overall: The PCR team is the most responsive of any other software I have used in my over 25 years of recruiting. I have used many different systems, nothing compares to PCR.

Julian - get in touch with us regarding the job board items, as we may be able to accomodate more customization.

This is an awesome system for a small to medium size organization that is growing. We've had the pleasure of expanding our organization and were able to do so easily in PCRecruiter!

Recommendations to other buyers: Know your business, what you want, don't want and the system will be superb. If you don't, the system is one where you could put too much (i.e. fields) that make your system cluttered and administrative; unnecessarily

Pros: The most interesting thing is that it's not very cluttered with lots of information and choices. There are few things that are laid down as given but are helpful in making it more easy to comprehend. It is well-integrated with our website and makes data integration smooth. Finding the source of information is clearly demarcated.

Cons: It takes a while to understand the flow and to learn the features that can be imbibed with the information. Lot of things, in spite the fact that the training is over, are yet not known to me, and as I put forth my questions to the technical support, I get to learn new features that were not told in the training session. The technical support is fast and helpful. Sometimes, you don't know when you do something, and that comes out as a different end result, and you get stuck as to what went wrong.

Recommendations to other buyers: Its nice software, and if the training sessions become more elaborate, it would be a lot easier to use its features. Its plus point is the ease with which it connects to your website, although you need to have someone put the link in the source code of the website. Sometimes, the trainer might be so well-versed that he would not understand the trainees' ignorance about the usage, and that gap needs to be patched. Also, each and every tab in the menu needs to be introduced, whether or not that feature is going to be used by the trainee or not. It might give an insight to the user. There is just one System tab to make all changes in the look and feel and working of the software. The monotonous work is made interesting by easily changing the look and feel of the page when needed. Its feature of blinding the resume is great, which was not seen in most other software.

Pros: PCR provides a lot of features and automation. It may take sometime to set everything up as you need, but once you do the product has the ability to really automate a lot of tasks that could otherwise be time consuming. Product is well integrated with LinkedIn.

Cons: For a small organization fees are very reasonable, if you begin to have many users, user fees could get expensive. For the size of my organization, it works quite well. Wish integration with Indeed was stronger, but we may not be utilizing most effectively.

Pros: The quick launch buttons make maneuvering through a candidate record very easy. The reporting feature is great as well. Easy to set up to get that customized data that you need to present to a client. The ability to quickly add candidates from LinkedIn and Zoominfo to PCR right from the website is a valuable tool as well.

Cons: The only downsides I see, is that the quick launch buttons to add activities and notes to a client record are not available yet. Also, you are not able to search your database to match up a LinkedIn or Zoominfo candidate to PCR if the name doesn't match 100%.

Vendor Response

by Main Sequence Technology on May 14, 2018

Hello Lara - One of PCR's strongest features is actually the ability to customize the fields, screen layouts, and functions to suit. This does, however, sometimes lead to more involved training because every setup is a bit different and each client uses their own fields and layouts rather than a required stock workflow.

I'd recommend reaching out to our support team with details on your personalization and change needs. It may be that the options you're seeking are actually there, but just not visible under your particular security settings or not exactly where you're looking for them in the system. PCR is perhaps one of the most configurable recruiting CRMs available, so if you're finding it coming up short on customization we may be able to help further.
