BrightMove is very easy to use and helps to streamline my process. The customer support live chat feature is wonderful and allows me to continue to work instead of staying on the phone with a customer service rep. There are a couple of features that I would like to see come back (hourglass resume function, being able to print out placement details). Overall it works very well for my recruiting needs.

Pros

Customer support chat feature, ease of use

Cons

New update has some bugs, took away some good features

Advice to Others

A solid tool, good to compare against others.

The system is fast , profiles have the necessary information to deal recruiters.
I think improvements could be made in relation to that sometimes when one is in median income of a candidate the system does not work.
No thanks I'm done

Likes Least

Sometimes its kind of confused. Sometimes profiles have irrelevant information . It has many options to write information when one is getting the info that sometimes is not relevant.

Recommendations

I think the system needs a renovation , looks very simple compared to other HR systems .

In aesthetic restoration it is needed .

In relation to content , the system will have many options to time that information is entered, which are unnecessary .

The customer service is great. It is very easy to figure out, user friendly. I like that your jobs go out to free job sites.

Likes Least

You have to go through several unnecessary steps to put employees on an order. You have to do the set up on your own, example setting up triggers to change someone from available to working, and then back to available when the job ends. It is hard to get everything set up to flow correctly. The system seems to run slow, a lot of wasted time waiting for things to come up.
When you do a search and pull up a person, when you go back to your search, it somehow goes way back to a search you did earlier, so you have to type in the search criteria over and over.

Recommendations

Research the customer service, check references, understand it will take a little time to get it all set up.

The vendor has excellent customer service. The product provided is decent for the price you pay. The functionality makes it easy to train new employees on. Searches are easy to maneuver and the customization for this system is very flexible. I would recommend this to a start up company.

Likes Least

I least like the following:

Implementation is lacking: While there are tools in place to teach you how to put triggers into place unless you understand technology on what I'd describe as an intermediate level they may not function the way you'd like them to. The owner of our company stated that when they purchased the system for use any customization beyond the standard template software had to be completed on their own. When I started working with Brightmove there were many triggers that did not function the way they were intended to for what the owner needed. Simple operator error that I was able to fix, but it's not exactly simple for a person not as familiar with some of the tech intel.

Data Manipulation: Data Analytics is hard to gain with this system accurately. There are multiple ways to manipulate the data and therefore makes it almost impossible to set tiered goals for the staff as the data is then not broken down completely. The numbers can be spoofed due to this oversight.

Recommendations

I would look carefully at it before deciding it's right. The price is very fair for a start up company and the system is definitely easy to navigate. However, there are some downsides as well. The downsides, however make it worth the price you pay for it as a more polished system might be slightly more expensive. I think that we have stuck with this system for so long due in great part to the fact that our company was able to make it work and the customer service is above par. However, as we are moving into a mid level range we are definitely open to other options now.

This vendor/product is very user friendly. I was trained very well and I am able to navigate around the system pretty well.

Likes Least

Sometimes it is slower than I am clicking. Also, sometimes in the middle of working in Bright Move the system logs me out and I have to log back in to loose everything I was working on.

Recommendations

I don't have any recommendations at this time. I might have more input after using the system for a longer period of time.

limited functionality with certain areas. Reporting could be more robust, dynamic responses for application would be great to have

do your research as there are a lot of platforms out there. Go through an evaluation process and have multiple companies provide demos and include your recruiters in the demos

I like using this applicant tracking system best because it allows you to manage your candidates in your own unique way. They allow us to customize for each client's different needs and process.

Likes Least

It takes some time to figure out how you want to use the system (so many different ways to get the same thing) but once you settle into your rhythm it becomes easy.

Recommendations

If something doesn't click for you, ask for help! They have a great IT task force and usually there is another way to complete the task anyway.

It does what it needs to do, and it has many fields. By this I mean it allows you to track ALOT of data.

Likes Least

It is not intuitive to use. When power searching anything, it feels awkward to apply the filters. Also the system commonly has "glitches". For example, today I added a new job, and it added 3 of the same position and really confused the recruiters.

Recommendations

Be sure to be careful of creating duplicates for certain things like clients. We have so many duplicates and it is sometimes hard to figure out which one is currently active. Even the candidates which have duplicate prevention somehow end up with duplicates.

I do think that the customer care could be a little more responsive. On the rare occasions I've needed help, I found it a bit challenging to get my questions answered.

Be sure to set up procedures that are company standards for using this program; it really helps with transparency of information if everyone is using the pages and options in the same way.
