Pros: I really liked how easy it was to get set up and start using the system, we had urgent roles we were hiring and we could get these references completed within a few hours.

The ability to control our brand was a really unique cool feature, and being able to design our questionnaires allowed me to tailor them to the unique roles we often hire. Being able to do everything via SMS and on mobile is also an awesome feature!

The service was really helpful, and always available to answer any questions I had.

Cons: The only con was that the system didn't integrate with our recruiting system, however, this is currently being built and expected in the coming months.

Overall: We hire high volume roles and we have seasonal variance so this is a great tool to assist with streamlining the process for everybody, it's easy for the candidate and referees which is important to us.

Pros: The overall experience using Checkmate was extremely positive. From their easy-to-use platform to their extensive range of features; including a custom form builder, industry-specific questionnaires, mobile notification and live sharing, to their extensive report generated at the end of the process. Checkmate takes care of the entire process. All I did was enter a few details to begin with and their system did the rest.

Cons: To be honest, there wasn't really anything to fault about this product.

Pros: We found Checkmate to be super efficient and cost-effective solution for streamlining the reference checking process. By using this product, we've managed to save an incredible amount of time wasted chasing both candidates and potential referees. Every aspect of the product was designed with the hiring managers, candidates and referees best interests at heart.

Cons: The only minor downside was that the product didn't integrate with Talent App Store, but that is a feature they are going to be rolling out later this year.

Pros: Checkmate has really helped our hiring strategy, we've started conducting the checks earlier in our recruiting process, allowing us to use the checks in support of our final decision, rather than when we only reference checks upon offer. By doing so we've been able to use the insight from the check alongside other assessment tools to make more informed hiring decisions

Cons: We weren't able to have multiple users, however, I was told this is being developed in the coming months.

Great product!

Pros: We recruit in a high volume and high turnover workforce and Checkmate has really helped to streamline an important part of the process. It's reduced our talent teams workload and turn around time considerably. Also, being mobile our candidates and referees can do everything from their phone which is a huge help.

Cons: We'd like to be able to automate follow up questions if/when needed, which I believe is a feature they're looking into building
