Softgarden is a well-structured, client-friendly product. The easy handling helps the users to simplify their assessment process. Especially the opportunity that multiple colleagues can give feedback to the applicants and therefore work on it together gives an additional value. Softgarden is constantly working on their software. Following this, new tools appear constantly. If you still have questions or suggestions, their customer service is always approachable.

It is a good tool to manage all applications. The support team is super friendly. They are constantly working on making the tool better. Some Features could be better, but overall we are happy
Juliane from FitX
Softgarden is a very simple and efficient tool with great features. Having happy and statisfied applicants is our biggest and most important target. Since using softgarden we already reached it. Everyone has been in an applicant´s situation before and knows, that being treated with respect and appraisal during the application process is the best employer branding action ever. Who wants to work for a company that doesn´t know how to treat their candidates right? It´s absolutely the greatest chance to carry your values as an employer outwards. The implementation gave reason to define clear standards for what we as FitX want to stand for as an employer as well.

My own experience with softgarden is really excellent. It¿s really easy to use, even if you¿re not generally used to applicant management tools. The tracking and coordination of various applicants is simple and clearly arranged. Within the job, you can add different colleagues to that job, so you can share the applications in the system. That makes the whole recruiting process a lot easier and faster!
On the other side, applicants can easily apply online, which is a perfect and an easy way for
I can just highly recommend this tool!
And by the way: The customer support is brilliant! :-)

We once have switched our System from SAP E-Recruiting to the softgarden application-app. In softgarden we have found an easy to use application for applicants and recruiters. Since we are using softgarden, we´ve never get calls, that somebody wasn´t able to apply for a job, what we´ve often had before. We never regret the step to switch our applicant-software to softgarden.
Sonja from Senger Management GmbH
We once organized applications in paper and over the E-Mail boxes. When our company grew and as manager were located in different cities is became really difficult to organize the applications, keep track of the applications, etc. The candidates must have had the impression that we were unorganized as we were not able to repond to the applicants on time or could not tell whem in what status the application was. Softgarden offered us a simple solution. The implementation was fairly easy. The process is visible for all in the recruiting team. It is eay to work with so that even managers cannot complain, that it ist too complicated and that it would take to much time.It does not. The system provides you with the opportunity to choose or create individual letters/messages to the candidates. Softgarden is also open to improving their system and is also optimising it. If you still need help, you can chat with the Helpdesk and they provide you immedidately with help. Overall we found a good solution which saved us a lot of administrative time. Additionally, we are sure that the candidates feel more comfortable applying, giving them the feeling to be welcomed and wanting to work for our company. And that is what we want, isn't it?!!

Andreas from AGAPLESION BETHANIEN DIAKONIE gGmbH
The AGAPELSION BETHANIEN DIAKONIE gGmbH operates numerous retirement homes and nursing homes in Berlin and Hamburg. At the beginning of 2015, we decided to convert the entire application management from paper to digital. The reason for this was the opening of a new location in Hamburg, where around 100 employees were sought in 27 professional groups. This challenge would not have been possible on the exclusively manual processing of applications. We chose softgarden's application management software because it was easy to handle, offers good value for money and reflects the entire process very well and in a structured way.
We have used it to define clear objectives and targets, e.g. that the applicant receives feedback from us within 10 days, either a rejection or an invitation to an interview. Communication between the parties has been greatly improved by the software. The entire process from application to recruitment is clearly structured and has been reduced by at least 50% overall. The feedback module introduced in 2016 confirms the good work and shows a high satisfaction of the applicants with the entire process. Customer service and the consultation of softgarden are first class.
We recommend softgarden at any time.
