OpenCATS Reviews

OpenCATS was good but CandidATS is better

Comments: We used OpenCATS for several years but became concerned at the complete lack of development. In mid 2015 we discovered that a small software developer,, had picked up development under the CandidATS name, and now use that.

CandidATS is basically the same as OpenCATS except it's maintained, albeit slowly. Given it's completely free , slow development is acceptable. In any case it's a relatively simple application with relatively simple objectives (storing and searching candidates, resumes, job pipelines etc.) so for us the major concern is addressed by Auieo, namely fixing minor issues, ensuring compatibility with MySQL and PHP updates etc.

For any serious recruiter, CandidATS provides an excellent, very stable and free, standalone ATS solution. I fully recommend it.
