Pros: I like that it is easy to use. I like that any question asked is answered and dealt with almost straight away, and that no question is s 'stupid' question.

When we have asked for a function to be changed to help support our process it is done, or another option is given.

The customer service for us and candidates using the system always has a personal touch and is second to none.

I would highly recommend.

Pros: If I have a problem or I would like to see about any changes that could be made, the team always make us feel like we are a priority and sets about helping us with concise direction and communication.

Cons: when an appointment is made and shared with colleagues changes cannot be made to the diarised appointment

Pros: We process a large number of vacancies and CV Minder has significantly reduced the amount of time spent on data entry and the posting of vacancies on job boards.

It has also improved the candidate experience, given us greater visibility on the recruitment journey and reduced non-committed applications.

You don¿t need a lot of training to use the system and it is pretty self-explanatory even for the non-technologically minded.

We find the level of customer care and engagement with Xperisoft to be excellent and would have no hesitation in recommending the system.

Cons: If I were to be really picky I would say some of the navigation is a bit quirky but there aren't really any negatives.

Comments: Up until 1st September 2016 our HR function had in place a rudimentary and dated recruitment process. The volume of recruitment at Downside is fairly modest, c50-60 hires a year during busy times, but applications numbers are 500+. The roles vary from Nursing to Academic and Support through to Volunteers and Pastoral staff. With such a diverse range of vacancies and applicants we recognised that our hiring process needed to be more efficient in terms of administration, but also more effective in order to attract and engage with a wider pool of candidates and improve the candidate experience.

We conducted a search of 7 different vendors who supply applicant tracking systems. This search included information gathering, online demonstrations, functionality, fit with our Organisation and price. On the whole, most platforms offer the same tools and costs range, per annum. Given the costs, functionality and fit we chose to run a trial with CV Minder. Now, 8 months into using CVMinder we believe it meets with our objectives for utilising a more modern recruitment platform, namely;

Improving the candidate experience - portraying our employer brand and offering functionality that better suits a growing population of mobile device users.
Accurate and compliant record keeping effective records, full compliance with the Data Protection Act and ensuring fairness and consistency in approach.
Improving efficiency - by removing unnecessary administration and time-consuming tasks that can be automated.
Easy to use simple system that is easily customisable and easy to use for all users.
Better reporting mechanisms - being able to quickly and effectively report on the recruitment process including tracking applicant sources and time to hire.
Ability for remote access flexible workflow management for hiring managers and HR.
Cost effective - reducing cost per hire (including the hidden administration and printing costs) and providing value for money.
Improved branding - building and nurturing a talent pool and engaging with candidates in a competitive marketplace.

Overall, it is a good solid ATS that offers excellent value for money and great customer support.

Pros: Very easy to use

Cons: None

Overall: I use CVMinder to manage on-boarding and employment checks as people start their new contacts or full-time employment with our customers. I can upload insurances, certificates and other information and complete all pre-employment checks with the recruiter. I have verification authority for those checks and I can print them off if I need to. CVMinder is incredibly easy to use and it does everything I need.

Pros: Managers now have more responsibility for their own recruitment whilst the process can also be monitored by HR in a live environment.

Cons: The system as a whole works well, however some features that have potential to save even more time are not yet fully developed (e.g. 1 click referencing).

Overall: After moving from a manual, paper-based system, CVMinder was adopted at the College over 2 years ago. It has streamlined our recruitment processes throughout and its sharp and slick appearance has created an easily accessible and professional application process for our candidates. The system itself manages our recruitment end-to-end and runs direct reports to help us monitor our recruitment approach and strategies.

Employability - Skills everyone needs and how to identify, measure and develop them.

Pros: Easy to use, comprehensive functionality. The team is very responsive to requests for changes. Immediate service when there are technical issues. Input about requirements is taken from a variety of sectors and industries.

Cons: At present, the interface is a bit clunky and cluttered as it is still developing and adapting.

Overall: In 2013 I was employed by a Higher Education college to look at helping students develop employability skills. Having worked (30yrs) and recruited in a senior position within a footsie 100 company I was looking to introduce a more realistic approach. One that not only gave practical advice and feedback enabling students to gain confidence and importantly succeed but also one that students and employers alike saw relevant value in. With CVMinder I found, not only kindred spirits but also a practical, user-friendly, adaptable platform. It is internet delivered, robust and secure so perfect for use in or out of college. With CVMinder you have an individual and personal account of employment and employability. Its functionality has advanced beyond that, and is indeed still doing so, to encompass; self-assessments of universally acknowledged essential skills, sections for personal feedback on CVs, personal statements, and interviews. A portfolio of achievements both professional and personal. It also provides an invaluable section that enables advertising, allocating and recording work experiences. In an education environment, this gives students a real "job seeking" experience and takes a huge work load off tutors. Equally importantly if you are a college or school it provides a standardized easily accessible database that very conveniently ticks all those OFSTED and QAA requirements. To schools, colleges, teachers, personal tutors, careers advisers, and employability officers indeed to anyone who aspires to deliver positive outcomes to their students I strongly suggest you take a look at this product. It works for you and it works for them.

Pros: Management and ease of use

Cons: None

Overall: As a service that works both internally within a large FE College, and externally within the local community, CVMinder has become a tool that is essential for us to achieve our targets and goals.

CVMinder allows us to manage different advertising board, both internal, and external, and ensure that the right vacancies are being posted and seen in the right places. The advertising and posting process is an easy, simple one that all staff has been able to quickly learn, and which allows us to get on to the important part¿ recruiting!

The shortlisting, employability tracking and assessments available within CVMinder are great for ensuring that all candidates and employers are handled quickly, appropriately and effectively. Alongside the core essential functions of CVMinder, there are seemingly small things which improve our daily working and effectiveness, such as automatic Outlook Calendar Entries for interviews. As a manager of a team, the reporting and management tools available ensure I can easily view, analyze and report on statistics, activity, and further evidence the way that we support our College, as well as the local community.

CVMinder Support is impressively responsive, and they have created a dynamic and vital product which they are not afraid to adapt to ensure that it remains the best product available. CVMinder has supported our needs as an organization by working with other organizations and arranging compatibility across other Job Boards, both national and regional. This has further ensured that CVMinder is our desired product and will continue to be.

Pros: Ease of use

Overall: CVMinder is an excellent recruitment tool which enables us to advertise part/full time/apprenticeship vacancies and manage and monitor all candidate applications and registrations in one area.

CVMinder is easy to use tool, which has various additional functions built in to manage all aspects of recruitment from the initial advertising stages to shortlisting, arranging interviews, assessing employability preparedness through to final appointment.

The CVMinder system provides a variety of reports to enable the user to analyze trends, record outcomes and avoid duplicating work on other systems.

The customer service and support team are highly responsive, helpful and experts in their field. The team have adapted and added new functions and features to their system to make it even more attractive and streamlined for our business.

Pros: It really is simple to use. While training is provided as part of the implementation process, the system is intuitive, so can be used without training.

Cons: I can't think of any cons. Over the years I have suggested a few tweaks which have been included.

Overall: I have been a recruiter and branch manager for over 30 years and I have used many of the usual suspects. The choice is endless, but in my experience, the biggest common problem with recruitment systems is that they can do many things, but those many things are pretty hard to find and use.

By comparison, I have found CVMinder really easy to use and I haven't need any documentation or online help to be efficient with it. There is no prescriptive workflow, but there is a visible process. That means that I can do things in the order that I need to without messing up the system or having to do some additional admin just to keep the system tidy. I love the fact that automated alerts have resulted in placements and I like the fact that I don't have to upload CVs and create candidate records; the candidates do that for me.

This is not a typical solution for a recruitment company and I would suggest that most would not consider this product. It is a system for internal recruiters, so don¿t expect candidate marketing functions in CVMinder. That works for me because Xperian doesn't send CVs out speculatively to prospects or batches of CVs to a client. It does help me to present my candidate details to an employer in consideration of their vacancy and it gives me their feedback.

I can share the responsibility for parts of the recruitment process with others and I can get a top-down view of everything really easily. For instance, I really like CVMinder's employment checks and how that is shared with a trusted administrator here. She contributes and I can see how far we have got through the process. Also, when my boss asks me where our best candidates are coming from, or how we are doing compared with last year, I can show him. It's all very simple.

Support is first class. I use it very infrequently, but it's a comfort that I can also send candidates to their support desk if they ever have an issue. The other thing is that they take suggestions for any improvements seriously.

All in all, it's like my right arm and gives me the equivalent of another person in the office. I'd recommend it if you are in internal recruitment or HR or you have a search and selection company.

Recommendations to other buyers: Ask for a demo, once you see the product in action you'll want to buy it!
