Comments: Great customer service.

Pros: After careful review of other platforms, Kortivity is easily the most user-friendly software for our business.

Cons: Nothing really to report at this point. Anytime there is a bug to fix, we have direct access to the key players and the problem is fixed.

Pros: They listen to your needs and ideas to improve their system. You can text and call candidates through the system and it will track it.

Cons: It is still evolving so there is no manual if you have a question. But the good news is they respond quickly to customer support questions/issues.

Overall: This is the fourth system we had in a year and it is the one we kept. Excellent quality, responsive customer support and a continually evolving system.

Pros: The features that other ATS systems don't have - questionnaires, logins for clients, VOIP, Google Maps, etc. Also, the system is intuitive and easy to use without the need of intensive training like I had to use with other systems such as Bullhorn and Maxhire.

Cons: Though there is the ability to connect with an API you have to go through Kortivity to make it happen. I wish I could do this myself.

Overall: We've been with Kortivity for 6 months or so now and never been happier. Our 3 regular users absolutely love Kortivity and especially their customer service. Their team has been amazing in not only helping with training and issues, but they are fantastic in making changes and additions to their product based on customer needs. They respond immediately to issues or questions and are always adding new dynamic features that are fantastic both for us and for use in marketing to our capabilities to our Clients. I think their forward thinking approach has created a product that is a natural evolution of what an ATS system should look like.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are looking for something different, more modern, with features that adapt with the changing world of Recruitment - Kortivity is a company that should be at the top of your list.

Comments: I have been using Kortivity for approx. 4 months. Like any new system we had learning curves, but the customer support has been outstanding. Questions are answered quickly and user suggestions to make the system more user friendly have been well received. I like the Scoreboard, it allows you to see everything in one place. The job orders are set up so all candidates status is clearly visible. It allows to get a great snapshot of what is going on. The ability to communicate to email with clients and candidates is quick and easy. It also connects communication for other sources like Outlook. The system is candidate and job order focused, versus client focused, but changes have been made to make client info more accessible. It also has a great Lead development system that allows you to track client development process. Over all I would highly recommend Kortivity to clients in the recruitment space.

Comments: As a remote based employee, I have not found this software to be very user friendly. I also don't like that the positions must be clicked on for central info such as location. This should be part of the header of each job.

Pros: The format and overall appearance of Kortivity is visually appealing. It is an easy way to track and view data. The reports are an easy way to track an array of data.

Cons: Navigation. Most pages require a series of click throughs to actually get to the page you're looking for. The filter function is hit or miss and sometimes mis-captures words. Overall speed of the ATS is slow. Sometimes new data doesn't save and has to be re-entered multiple times. Occasionally pages freeze or never load.

Overall: Kortivity is a great tool for keeping your business organized as well as tracking performance and progress. While Kortivity is resourceful, it is not what I would consider user-friendly. The quick search function is handy and makes navigation faster.

Recommendations to other buyers: Kortivity is an awesome concept- but is still lacking qualities to actually make it an awesome product. If features were available to either add or remove from view per each login- I think that would be a huge improvement.

Pros: Email history linked to candidates is excellent feature, SMS and calling capability, The candidate snapshot where I can easily view resume, recent activities is great feature. Also like being able to add forms, create templates, present candidates directly to hiring managers

Cons: At times- copying and pasting from my computer into Kort doesn't translate well, ie font, format change, etc. This may be a mac to pc issue. Also it would be nice to schedule candidates w/ hiring manager via email (similar to presenting candidates for a interview and asking for feedback). Sometimes I find it "tricky or a lot of steps" to toggle in and out of all the windows and I think with more use it will become second nature. Otherwise, no complaints! You seem to be on top on making improvements for us and getting out feedback and this is greatly appreciated!

Overall: So far my experience with Kortivity has been great! It's a useful CRM and the more familiar and efficient I become in it, the more efficient I become as a recruiter. The best part is your support. John V has been nothing short of amazing! He is ALWAYS helpful and great to work with! He makes himself available for me whenever I have a quick questio , he's on it ASAP via phone, text and email. He's been spending 30 min to 1 hour on one on one training sessions with me which via go to meeting which have been invaluable. He's proactive about scheduling f/u training sessions and has made my experience with Kortivity very enjoyable!

Pros: The reporting and how it continues to evolve as we use and experiment with it. I also have enjoyed the Click 2 dial and distance widget for proximity of candidate to the client.

Cons: Keeping up with all the new features. Every time I speak with Jason, I learn something more that is in the software that I should have been using a long time ago.

Overall: I've been a fan for a very long time and continue to be impressed on how the Kortivity team continues to take business ideas and enable recruiters with new features and functions that simplify the busy work required to be successful.

Recommendations to other buyers: I've enjoyed the relationship I've gained with Jason over the years we've worked together. His personal investment in me and our business has meant a lot as we continue to evolve our company.

Pros: The features! Workflow is awesome! Kortivity has email integration, SMS Text, GPS mapping, VOIP (we were able to get rid of our landlines and save money!). The finder feature helps us identify qualified candidates quickly and being the process of reaching out with ease. Dashboards and reports help quickly determine bottlenecks. Last but not least is their customer support. The team at Kortivity meets with their clients on a regular basis to learn how to continue improving the software.

Cons: We have not had any issues.

Overall: Our experience has been great! We started using Kortivity earlier this year. The software has helped us improve processes. Kortivity is easy to use and the team at Kortivity is the best at making sure the transfer from a prior ATS is seamless. They always look for ways to help recruiters save time and fill positions quickly.

Recommendations to other buyers: I'm excited about Kortivity and all the software has to offer. There are many features available that we have not used and I'm looking forward to working more with their questionnaire feature as well as bringing clients onto the system to review candidates in process. When you demo the product, make sure to ask about Prospector! This feature is a huge time saver!

Pros: I like that you can paint an accurate picture of the recruiting process for team and clients. You can see the length of time candidates are in each stage of the process and easily manage jobs. Each aspect of the software enables me to do my job more effectively.

Overall: My experience with Kortivity has been great. The software was easy to learn and the team goes above and beyond to make the onboarding process painless. They value input and respond almost immediately to concerns and feedback.

Pros: The transition and integration from the previous system was fast, efficient, and very cost effective. The implementation team moved us over in three days. The customer support is top notch. The software is easy to use, easy to get ramped up quickly on. The system is built with a recruiter in mind. The data uploading and resume parsing features are solid. The staff is adding new features as requested. The integration with Outlook 365 has been pretty easy. The reports feature is great for mangers who want to know recruiter and firm activity. The VOIP dialing feature puts the information about the length and call activity right to the record of the candidate or company.

Cons: Moving from one ATS to another is tough for some firms. Because we moved from a system that we were used to, it took a few days to get used to the new look. Kortivity is a new player to the recruiting and staffing market so people may worry about moving to two year young company.

Overall: We have been a user of Kortivity Software for 6 months. We have used 3 Applicant Tracking Software Systems over the last 20 years. Kortivity has been a solid ROI investment.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take a look via the demo and you will see some new ways of running your recruiting firm. I was impressed and I am sure you may see a lot of value in the Kortivity software model.

Pros: Unique features such as the integration with google maps, and the LinkedIn extension that lets you pull profiles directly into the ATS. The interface is friendly on mobile and tablets, which is great for employees on the go.

Overall: The team at Kortivity brings a great product to the ATS world. Not only do they understand the needs of our industry, but they listen to their buyers and work on making the product work for us. The support is outstanding, and the features just keep coming.

Recommendations to other buyers: From someone who has used many of the major ATS platforms in the market, Kortivity is bringing high functionality at a reasonable cost to customers. The support is second to none.

Great product at a great price. It's increased productivity tenfold.

Pros: it's very easy to use and and a lot of functionality.

Cons: I didn't find it sooner!

Overall: I had tried 3 other recruiting softwares prior to using Kortivity. I would say that Kortivity was built with a recruiter in mind not a computer programer. So far my experience has been very positive and I would recommend it to anyone starting a new agency or even an existing one.

Recommendations to other buyers: Love the fact that Kortivity is very much open to suggestions for improving the software. Advise....keep listening and improving.

Pros: Functionality and features tailored to the Executive Search firm's unique needs. Unlike a typical, off-the-shelf corporate ATS (focused only on "us" and candidates), this tool appropriately aligns the three key parties (firm, candidate AND client) and enables seamless communication and correspondence tracking among all three. The revenue pipeline calculation is another particularly useful feature, as is the ability to structure user dashboards to their particular projects.

Cons: After 2-3 months using Kortivity, no cons have been noted. There are always growing pains in moving from one tool to another, but Kortivity is easy to use and the "how do I do this?" part is logical and intuitive.

Overall: Kortivity has proven to be a great tool for the executive search consulting firm. It reflects the unique nature of this business (internal users, candidates AND clients) and successfully integrates functionality and ease of use (highly intuitive). If you are seeking an ATS-equivalent as an executive search firm, I'd certainly suggest scheduling a demo to see whether this tool can better support your business needs than a bigger-name competitive product that you may be using.

Recommendations to other buyers: My best advice: Schedule a demo and see whether this tool can better align your business, candidates and clients. If you're currently using a core ATS tool, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Pros: The software has pleasant screens that are easy to navigate. It has easy upload features included an imbedded upload into LinkedIn, plus it has a VoIP tie in that allows a user to call and text directly from the software and track the activity. It also ties directly into my gmail account and allows you to easliy build templates.

Cons: I am waiting on the calendar update and the build out on the candidate pipelines for prospective opportunities.

Overall: Recently purchased this software over five other applicant tracking vendors due to the treatment I received from the Kortivity team and the ease of getting started with their product.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great team, putting together a user defined product that is easy to use and makes easy for hiring managers and candidates to particpate in the recruiting process

Pros: The ease of use, the many features (love the VOIP phone) and the amazing product support I have received.

When I market to a prospective client I talk about "my" software and they are impressed with the level of service I can deliver.

Cons: With anything you always want more. I look forward to the continued evolution of Kortivity.

Overall: I used a competitive product before switching to Kortivity and from the first interaction with sales to the weekly calls with new features I am thrilled I made the choice to switch.

The product is web based, mobile friendly and allows me as a solo recruiter to have a level of professionalism that was unachievable with any other product I have used in my career.

Since switching to Kortivity I have received numerous compliments from my clients about the ease of use and my turn-around time for feedback about candidates has increased my number of placements.

I am no longer a slave to extra charges, unusable features and frustration at every turn.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't be afraid, jump in and use it. Your clients, candidates and colleagues will be impressed.
