NEOGOV is a well-known applicant tracking system (ATS) provider servicing the public sector and higher education industries in the U.S. and Canada. Founded in 1999, the company’s awards include a spot on the Los Angeles Business Journal’s list of 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies.
NEOGOV’s applicant tracking solution, NEOGOV Insight, automates the core components of the hiring process, from job posting to communication with candidates. Insight integrates with company careers pages, allowing organizations to accept job applications through their own websites. It also enables users to post job requisitions directly to job boards and tracks interactions with recruiters and hiring managers through each step of the hiring process.
Along with accepting applications, organizations can use Insight to pre-screen and score candidates once they apply. For example, recruiters and hiring managers can score and weight-rank applications based on education, experience, skills and competencies. Written tests, oral panels and performance exams can also be added to the pre-screening process.
Finally, Insight’s reporting and analytics dashboards help organizations improve the efficiency of their hiring processes. There are over 90 standard reports included, which recruiters can use to ensure Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) compliance for each new hire and track applicant flow to identify bottlenecks and decrease time-to-hire.

Easy to contact NEOGOV reps, versatility of product is very useful.
Master Record Merge function can be very confusing to new users.
Training modules for new users to NEOGOV Insight are very helpful.
Richard from Travis County
Very little. Very complicated to work with and service is spotty.
Again, I think the program needs a lot of work and simplifying. I have used other programs such as PeopleSoft and found them much easier and more comprehensive. This is a very labor intensive system.
Define exactly what you need from your HRIS system, then look for programs that meet your needs. Don't judge by cost alone. You will most likely save on man hours with a system that costs a little more.

ES review 4-15
Online process of candidate application review. Ability to only review applications assigned to me.
If multiple people review the same applications there is no option to keep individual reviews answers.
Look for extra features. Like ability to tabulate answers by reviewer and assign scores.

Overall, it works fine and does most of what we need but posting a job can be cumbersome. It's not as straightforward as you would think. Also, copying a posting is not as easy as it could be to re-post the same job.
it's easy to view and look things up
has decent reporting capabilities
it's not straight forward in posting jobs
it takes a long time to copy an existing post

So this is purely a review from the hiring perspective. It is not too intuitive on how to get around in the main system but once you find your records, it is great, well organized, and provides sufficient data to make strong decisions. The tracking features to keep track of applicants are especially useful when dealing with high volumes of applications.
