Crelate Talent Software


 

Crelate Talent is a Web-based applicant tracking system (ATS) and sourcing tool that was built from the ground up to help recruiters find, attract, and retain top talent.

Crelate is best suited for executive search firms and other recruiters that manage a network of deep relationships. The system offers typical ATS features, along with a search function that allows users to dig into data of all types—resumes, their notes, recent activity, and more.

Recruiters can quickly post to job boards or integrate the Crelate job portal directly into their website.

Users can also create a relationship history with applicants using their notes, customizable tags, follow-up activities and automated reminders.

Crelate includes mobile apps for iPhone and iPad so users can do their job from anywhere.

I have been using Crelate Talent for almost a year, and I am very happy with it. It's not perfect,no tool is - but it is pretty adaptable and customizable for such an affordable product. Customer service is responsive and helpful, and they have made some great improvements in functionality in recent updates.

Pros

Great value, highly customizable.

Cons

I wish it integrated more smoothly with LinkedIn.

Advice to Others

Try it out! It had a bit of a learning curve (at least for me - coming from another in-house developed ATS prior to this one), but once I got the hang of it, I've been impressed.

The best part about Crelate is their support. Whenever I do have a question they are incredibly responsive. Recently I re-branded my firm (new name, new website) and their support engineer worked for hand in hand with me to make sure everything launched without a hitch. The product is terrific and it does what I need an Applicant Tracking System to do. It doesn't get bogged down with stuff I don't need. Also, they really listen. On several occasions, I have made suggestions for improvements and they built it into their next quarterly release.

Pros

The support and the customer service.

Cons

There are some integrations to third party products that bigger ATS products offer that Crelate does not yet, but I think in time they will add the ones that are most valuable.

Advice to Others

If you are a small recruiting shop, this is the best solution out there for you.

Our team spent months searching for an ATS/CRM. Finally we came to a point and gave up. We chose a 20-year-old system that most headhunters use because we were desperate. It was the worst experience, 10 clicks to get to a simple step. We gave up and lost many houses and hundreds of dollars. Back on the search, we stumbled across CHELATE! Amazing customer service and ease of use!

Of course there is no perfect solution. But these guys are amazing simply because they are USA based and when you email them RESPOND. Give these guys a shot....They won't disappoint!

Pros

ease of use
robust
automation
customer service is 5 star

Cons

Platform seems to be newer then most other systems so some baby bugs but they fix them as soon as you mention them.

This is to be expected. With any ATS. But these guys are USA based and have amazing support.

Advice to Others

Vet as many as you can like we did. Dont settle for less!

When I saw the product in the demo I was thrilled because it's the kind of product that you can use without training. Your home page is an overview of your openings and the candidate in your funnel. Everything is intuitive, very easy to understand and you can easily see or guess where to go to look for data and take action. I've seen other products that are not as modern or up to date with old platforms/features that are very clunky and tedious to use for twice the price and more. It's very easy to customize, both data input fields and reporting. So far, I'm happy to have chosen it. This is an up and coming product that definitely deserves a try.

Pros

Simple and attractive user interface
Good support

Cons

Have not had any issues yet

Not only is the company super responsive to support requests, they are also very tuned in to user suggestions. Each user is valued and respected. Some of my suggestions have ended up in one of their quarterly updates. They are always fine tuning and adding new features. While it does not have every bell and whistle it more than meets my needs and fits my budget. Excellent product.

I found crelate to have all the funtionality that I need, as a Search professional. I allows client and applicant tracking. mass emailing, and search.
Super customizable. Company very eager to help and is constantly making improvements, based on Custoers feedback.

Worth the cost.

Pros

Cost, and customizability.

Cons

Some of the ability to get things fixed or up and running Immediately. However the company is very responsive.

Advice to Others

Cant beat the price. and it functions, just like the bigger more expensive ATS, just not as many clicks.

I have had some success with the program, the only real issues I had was with password resets and not having a link to go to if I forget my password.

Pros

I can create my own applicant questioner easily, I can connect my jobs to my web site. I can track an monitor status on each job right at my home page.

Cons

Training is offered however I can not always make the training sessions because I work two jobs and the times offered are during business working hours. There has been some difficulty navigating the program due to missing out on the training, but I have for the most part been able to pick it up along the way.

Advice to Others

I would recommend this product to start up's, its affordable, and easy to get around when connecting to web-sites and posting job's.

Of the 4 software systems that we reviewed, this was our favorite. Great customer service, easy to use, and a great value for our needs. Very simple with powerful searches

Pros

Cloud-based service; will publish to company website along with 17 sites (including Indeed, Monster, ZipRecruiter); good graphics & analytics; customizable; can parse up to 50 resumes at a time; will also publish to LinkedIn & Facebook; no set-up fee; 3 individual trainings included; duplication detection; spreadsheet imports; when parsing from LInkedin, includes information and contact's photo; search keywords in the notes

Cons

No backend functions (payroll) but can possibly be added in the future

Advice to Others

Great for smaller recruiting firms who are looking for a user-friendly software system!

N/A

It's true, all ATS' are not created equally, however, most give you the same or very similar features and functionality. That's why pricing, product support, and the relationship developed between yourself as the customer, and all of those in the sellers company that you become involved with is critical to making a buying decision! Everyone that I've had the pleasure of dealing with at Crelate has been very friendly and very helpful!!

Crelate is a great product with many cool updates still to come - very exciting!! It is very user friendly and HIGHLY customize-able (is that word?!)!! Very easy to learn and become comfortable with - and I've worked with probably 10 ATS' throughout my years of recruiting. In fact, the few times I've had questions about how to do something, it was simply "me" overthinking it and making it harder than it was! Their tech support was very quick to guide me to the right solution, and in a very friendly manner.

Pros

Easy to learn / Easy to make customization changes / Easy to import resumes / Easy to load jobs and post to your webpage directly from Crelate / Mobile access /

Cons

Currently there is no highlight feature for key words on a resume, but this is coming very soon!
Candidates and Client contacts are all listed in one group as "Contacts", they can be sorted, but they aren't kept separate.

Advice to Others

Shop around, don't settle for the name-brand because you'll just end up paying more for a tired old dinosaur and missing out on the cool new features of the newer products, that also cost much less!!

The product is great - useful and a great value. It is highly customizable given its relative affordability, with so many built-in tools. As important to me, the customer service is quick and helpful. The built in support is usually sufficient to answer basic questions, but the personal support is responsive when you need it. I haven't taken advantage of as much of the onboarding support and training as I should have, but what I have used has been helpful.

Likes Least

There are perhaps a few really useful tools I wish this product had - the one I miss most is a "batch update" feature - the ability to update a large number of existing contact records (say, from a list of people who attended an event, or something similar). As it currently is, you have to add that info to each attendee - you can only load many records with information if they are new contacts. I also find the duplicate detection feature a bit sensitive. Some names are simply common, and if I give the records middle initials, nicknames, and/or email or phone numbers that are different, I would like to have the option of accepting the duplicate (rather than cancelling out or turning duplicate detection off - I want to be alerted to the possibility of a duplicate, but I'd like to be able to override it if I'm sure it's two people with the same name).

Recommendations

Use the free trials for the products you're considering! Try to do the things you will need to do regularly, and see if it's a good fit for you before you commit. It's not just a matter of whether a software is capable of doing what you need, but also whether it is intuitive for you HOW it does it.

Crelate has all of the features I need to store data, move candidates through the pipeline, and search both resumes and notes or tags.

I've had great experiences with training on the product, as well as customer support when I've had questions.

Having to click "Save" after I make changes. The level of customization is also a double-edged sword. It's wonderful to make the system fit my company's process, but also can get complicated to make it make sense for everyone on my team.

Recommendations

Keep an open mind to changing your workflow. There are many features that can improve on your process instead of trying to make the features fit your current process.

Unfortunately the price was a bit too high for the model.

If you are looking for a basic ATS this isn't it. There are a lot of bells and whistles, but the cost is quite a lot more than some competitors.

The Crelate support team is awesome! Very responsive, easy to work with and they seem genuinely interested in helping. It's really easy to use! I had no problems uploading 1000's of contacts and candidates. Creating email templates and customizing the layout to fit my needs has been easy as well. Integrating it with Outlook is great for tracking communication.

I am still new to the software and I haven't done any real training but I'm not crazy about the search tool and "tagging" everything.

Recommendations

Everyone's needs and preferences are different. Software Advice did a good job of matching me to 3 companies to evaluate. I had experience with some others so I had a baseline for comparing. I chose Crelate because I liked the layout and functionality and everyone I talked to seemed genuine.

Everything about Crelate is a breeze to use. The UI is so intuitive. I love that you can attach photos of candidates to their profiles and Crelate allows you to search LinkedIn and social media right from the candidates profile. The drag and drop feature is also very easy to use. Their app is fabulous. I can actually fully function just using my phone.

No complaints. Crelate has built a stand out ATS. I really can't think of anything they could do to improve their software....it's that good.

Recommendations

Be sure to ask for a demo and if the company doesn't offer one....run. We had a terrible experience with Bullhorn before finding Crelate. World's apart in terms of quality and customer service.

User interface is simple to understand and user-friendly. You are able to drag and drop candidates into customizable stages on job orders, as well as quickly add notes and filter on activity. Features customizable activity types and icons. Support is available in-app, and tickets are addresses promptly by staff in the U.S. Ability to add custom tag categories and tags for skills, candidate preferences, etc. 5 customizable candidate information fields. Search is robust, and you can filter search on documents (and each customizable document type), activities, tags, etc. Job postings can be pushed to company's website as well as free industry boards. There is a companion app to retrieve/add information from mobile device. Basically for the money this is the best solution for our small business.

I really haven't come across anything I don't like. We haven't gotten into reporting capabilities so I can't comment on the effectiveness. Also I haven't been able to complete the advanced email setup for bulk messaging - there are some issues with my ISP that I'm not technical enough to resolve and support at Crelate hasn't been able to resolve either, however I haven't really pushed the matter as it's a feature I haven't needed to use.

Recommendations

We considered some lower-priced options, however support/sales was not U.S. based and during demonstrations, it was clear the person doing the demo wasn't quite understanding what features I wanted to see. When it came to Crelate, I was very comfortable with the level of knowledge of the sales/training staff and felt more confident they would be able to sort out issues in the future. This was a factor in our decision, and one that I think should be considered. There were also similar priced-options with what I feel were TOO many features, making it hard to get set up and running effectively - the user interface of Crelate is just right.
