Great CRM System for our Staffing Agency

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Overall a great system that is good for companies with non-techy employees.

Pros

Compas is much more intuitive and easier to use compared to other CRM systems e.g., Salesforce. The UI is straightforward, the pages load quickly, and the steps make sense. Overall, in terms of inputting information, Compas hits the mark in almost all aspects. You do not need to be a CRM wiz or have extensive knowledge in order to enter information into Compas. This is a good and easy to use CRM program that works for our staffing firm.

Cons

Extracting data from Compas can be a bit of a hassle, and the reporting capability of Compas is a bit lacking. However, with time, I think they will be able to build a much better report system. Their willingness to work with their clients in creating reports is a huge first step.

MyCompas is the jack of all trades, master of none ATS. I'd like to highlight the elegant user interface, and their chrome extensions that easily let you input candidates from LinkedIn directly into the database with a few clicks. It does have a searchable database, but with the caveat of searching for specific criteria can be challenging at times. Overall, I think it is a solid choice for agency ATS options out there on the market. Also they are very speedy with customer service requests.

Pros

Chrome extension support.

Cons

Expensive per user monthly fees.

Advice to Others

Try it out! I enjoyed it.

I've worked with COMPAS for the past two-years and their customer service has been exceptional. They have assisted us with every question and concern that has come up during recruitment.

Pros

The representatives are very quick to handle any questions and/or concerns that we may have. They have also improved their reporting capabilities over the past two-years.

Cons

Some of their functions could be improved in terms of the career's page, applications, and other applicant functionality.

Value for Money

COMPAS' software had become such a part of our day to day processes that we sometimes forget it's a separate piece of software. We use COMPAS everyday, for every new applicant, and it makes our operations seamless. We reviewed several CMS systems before deciding on COMPAS and saw a lot of features that we knew we would just never use. COMPAS has everything we need and because it is so easy and straight-forward, our new recruiters don't need much training before they are ready to start posting jobs.

Pros

Intuitive - does not require much training for new users
New Tabs/Layout - love that each click opens a new tab instead of navigating away from the job, client or employee you are already looking at.
Customer Service - everything we need is taken care of
Straight-forward - it gives us exactly what we need and doesn't try to up-sell products that don't make sense for our industry, internal staff capabilities, or budget

Cons

Literally nothing...

Advice to Others

Think about what you really need and try not to get sold on extra features that require a lot of extra work before you can find the value-added. Do you need the system to communicate with your payroll, your accounting software, etc or do you just need a system that can find and organize the best candidates and get them into interviews faster?

I am new to recruiting and had to learn the system from scratch. Overall the system is easy to use, but I am sure there are some additional features and functionality that would help me become more effective and efficient.

Pros

I like that I can easily search for candidates utilizing parameters to identify the most qualified candidates.

Cons

Some of the features are not intuitive - for instance the search parameter you have to take a couple of steps rather than the system automate your selection.

Advice to Others

I think overall this is a very effective tool that helps in the recruiting process as well as maintain a database for future searches.

The syrstem is very straight forward. However it has some uniques features that make it great.
I will say one of the best features is the email's sync and the search

Likes Least

I will like to have more hyperlinks to go to different sections. For example, on the applicats page you can see al the activity. I wish I can have hyperlinks to jump to the role or the company from there.
The interfaces are not great but they are ok

It has a lot of features so you need to spend some time to found out more staff. I'm still learning it but so far I love it

The front end process was very detailed in order to set us up for success. And generally, where other companies would stop there, the back end support has been wonderful as well. You aren't treated like a means to meet a revenue goal, rather you are treated as a partner whereas both parties feel successful throughout implementation. Oh, and the product itself is really good too.

Likes Least

I can't really say that I have suggestions for improvement.

Recommendations

Definitely do your research into what your needs are and be a specific as you can in communicating those needs. If you are connected with a company who can really listen and tailor their product to meet those, then that is a win all around.

1. You need to fix the importation of emails. I still can't assign emails I receive from LinkedIn or from my team members to a specific record. I have to now copy and paste emails into individual records rather than just assigning it to a record.
2. Still too many "clicks".

Talk to those who are currently using the product.

I have recommended COMPAS and will proudly continue to do so. My business partners have to be continually striving to be better. The industry moves quickly and technology has to at least remain current. COMPAS has done an exceptional job of staying ahead of the changes so that our team is able to quickly identify leading candidates and present in a timely manner. The customer service is exceptional and we feel that our suggestions and comments are taken into consideration as product enhancements are designed and released.

Likes Least

I am looking forward to the day that some of the applicant functionality is available for the contact profiles!

Recommendations

Assess your work flow. If you are doing things the same old way because your current system functions that way, you may not be running as efficiently as possible. Be open to some workflow change with new technology, you may be very pleasantly surprised as to how much more efficient you can be! Also, quickly standardize your internal business acumen to align with the terminology used within system, your learning curve will be much quicker.

The layout was clean and straight-forward. Our recruiters compared it to facebook as far as it's usability was concerned. It's very easy to learn and use - perfect for the range of tech skills our team has. We also liked that COMPAS was a newer, smaller company compared to some of the other products we demo'ed. Since we're a start-up, we like the idea of partnering with another start-up(ish).

Likes Least

Nothing so far! We hoping to get into the Enterprise version soon so there may be some limitations there. For now it's perfect!

Recommendations

Do lots of demos and take lots of notes and screenshots! After a while, some of the features between companies blended together. Our screenshots helped us remember who was who.

We have barely had any issues with COMPAS since we switched a little over a year ago (July 2013). They were down one morning when we started our day. We called it in; they were already aware of it, and within 15 minutes, all was resolved. So everything is great.

Recommendations

Take advantage of their evaluation time, and play with it. You can edit and customize it to your needs. Take the time to read their how-tos; they are worth it.

We tried it for over a year and found that it did not meet the expectations for our company.

We lost our connection six times in one year.

I began the search for a new ATS system for my business and I had a few “non-negotiable” items that I needed when choosing a new ATS Software company. Over a four month period, I actively looked at several ATS systems and tested four different ATS companies that I felt could provide me with the capabilities that I would need, not only to operate my business but also act as a partner to help grow my business.

In choosing an ATS system, I wanted a company that truly cared about my business, had cutting edge technology, flexibility in customizations, was easy to use and more importantly, easy to train my recruiters to use. I also wanted something that required, minimal clicks and had HTML Capabilities to also use as a marketing tool. It was important to be able to pick up the phone and talk to someone, have a quick response time, and a company that was continually upgrading their system and could give best practice ideas.

After extensive research, it was evident that COMPAS was the only company that met all of my criteria. The system is off the charts, easy to use, and I truly believe that they care about me and my business. I have never in my experience using ATS systems, met a company that says “yes is the answer, what’s the question”.

In addition, it was huge fear of migrating my data as it is my life line. The migration was quick and accurate. About a week later, I noticed a minor mistake on a categorization (my fault) and made one phone call to the migration team. Within 20 minutes, they fixed my mistake and never interrupted my business for a single moment.

In my experience, everyone that I have dealt with in COMPAS genuinely cares about your success, is time sensitive and treats you like extended family. I believe that, that kind of culture does not happen by accident, but instead, is a direct result of leadership and hiring people that are the best in the business. I could not be more happy with my decision to join the COMPAS Family and believe that the best idea is still yet to come…. and when it does, COMPAS will be leading the charge.

It's very fast to find any applicant in the system. It's also easy to edit any table for an admin, no need any support by the vendor. Another thing that I like is the customer support, all the requests are being taken care of fast enough.

Cons

If you delete any option that has been added before but not being used anymore, it'll delete all historical data. The system should be flexible. It's not even possible to hide the options that aren't being used anymore.

Currently, Compass has been nice to have. I am looking forward to trying out the new skin it seems to have a lot of improvements.
I feel our struggle has been with the consistency of the overall program.
