Pros: Configurable and adaptable for the complex recruitment requirements of the NHS.

Reliable and the support is excellent.

Very good features and a continuous development pipeline.

Reporting functionality is terrific.

The system supports the full end-to-end recruitment process from requisition to on-boarding.

Cons: Very little. Where opportunities to improve the system have been identified, Kallidus has responded through continuous development programme.

Overall: The system has enabled an optimised and efficient recruitment process delivering a great experience for candidates, managers and the recruitment team.

Pros: My team and I got started with Kallidus at the end of October so we're now 5 months in. The implementation was very straight forward and support was freely available where I needed help with any particular aspects of it. On the whole we've been very impressed and so have our stakeholders in the business.

Cons: My ownly negative comments are that during the sales process, I was only given information about the Professional system (I'd requested this but pretty much based on cost and number of hiring managers) but actually the basic functionality of this system is really quite limited and now we've been using it for 5 months, there are some frustrations with it. However, Kallidus have worked very closely with us to improve and upgrade the system as much as they can with no additional cost so far. If I'd known about the limitations, I'd have put a better business case together and gone for Enterprise.

Also, in any particular view, when you've applied location or division filters etc. if you go in to a candidate journey or click in to a vacancy and then back arrow to get back to your view, you lose the filters and have to apply them again.

Overall: Excellent - very supportive and definitely trying to make our user experience even better.

Pros: Very user friendly

Clear and concise in selection options

Can be tailor made to individual Company requirements - almost a bespoke package

Security levels have enabled us to to manage rollout to frontline recruitment as we can restrict user options

Cons: Nothing to report as the software has matched our specific Company needs

Overall: From initial contact to placing our contract via tender with Kallidus the support has been outstanding. The initial contact with the Team was very open and honest and not in any way 'salesy'.

Kallidus have delivered on everything they promised in a timely manner.

The whole experience has felt like a partnership rather than Client/Supplier

Pros: Candidate processes and seeing where each candidate is up to in the recruitment process.

Also the self scheduling facility is amazing! Saves us a lot of time from having to schedule candidates for their interview.

Layout is also great and very easy to use.

Candidates can apply through their mobile device as the site is set up for this.

Set up different views for different situations.

Cons: Not being able to have more application form options.

No cons really as everything i seem to like!

Pros: The function's are very useful, user-friendly and simple to tell / show another person how to use it. Does near enough everything we need.

Cons: I would much prefer a function where, as we receive and send emails from / to an email address of a candidate registered on Kallidus, the email to migrate into their file as lots go in & out of Outlook and it would be a much better function to have the trail in there should it be needed, as I have had in other software, previously.

Overall: Really good.

Pros: Knowing that most of our candidates apply by mobile, we wanted a solution that would enable us to fulfil this experience in the best way possible. We felt that Kallidus Recruit gave us the best mobile experience, with some great features for candidates. A nice looking dashboard has helped with easily accessible metrics on time and cost per hire which we were not able to do before.

Overall: Kallidus Recruit offered a competitive pricing model that allowed us to get up and started quickly. The ability to drive mobile applications was key and an experience for the end user that was seamless and effective.

Pros: - the Customer Support function responses to my queries quickly

- the system is nicely designed and easy to use

- there is a good and clear visibility of open roles and candidates which we have been able to design to our needs

Cons: - there are some functions missing which I would have assumed would have been automatic which are not. Causing significant extra admin work

- the reporting updates overnight, difficult to get real time exports from the system

Pros: It is easy to find vacancies and candidates and review their applications. We have just gone through a huge upgrade of the system and am looking forward to using the updated system and learning abut its new features

Cons: I find that I have to move the candidates backwards and forwards so that the manager has access and sight to progress. This will hopefully be much better with the new upgrade to the system

Pros: Having access to system builder as well as the main product provides us as a client the flexibility to keep our solution offering up to date with our clients needs.

Cons: The product itself is fairly faultless in comparison to previous systems we have used however I would say that adding in a rollback option for System Builder would be a major plus as it would minimise the need for contacting the support desk if an error were to be made in deployment.

Overall: Kallidus Recruit has enabled our team to provide a far more efficient and quality service to our clients.

Pros: Visually attractive and easy to use. Configuration process very impressive to end up with the product we wanted. Good workflows and the portals for Hiring Managers and Candidates work well

Cons: The way people are organised into candidates who have applied for a role and people who have not applied for a specific role but in general takes some time to get used to.

Overall: We wanted to automate our workflows, get more nuanced reporting and build a database and Kallidus is helping us achieve this. The system is newly installed so currently working towards achieving this.

Pros: The software has enabled me to see candidates in a clearer and easy to use format, especially when organising assessment centres and interview days, this has saved me a lot of time. Also the simplified application forms for candidates, this is now much easier for the candidate to submit their interest directly to us, quickly and without issue. All round, great software upgrade :-).

Cons: We understand there are tweaks to be made here and there, as with every new system.

Pros: I like to get all the applications to Kallidus and the possibility to put the applicants in different categories. I also like that it is so easy to contact the applicants either by mail or sms.

Cons: That it is not possible for the applier to upload more than one document into the system.

Overall: It makes the recruting process so much easier. You get the requisition into the system, create the ad, get the applications and you can rate them. It makes the process faster and a easy way of work.

Pros: Even though I am not the end user, the product is intuitive and easy to use. It was a breeze to setup (after the first few hurdles in learning how to use it of course, as any new tool).

Users are confortable with how all is setup and they managed to pick up and start working with it pretty much straight away.

Cons: The only issue I had was with traninig on how to use the back end, I fel tit was too short and even though I managed to finally get everything with a bit of trial and error, a bit more training on the software, or longer, would have made me vote 10/10
