CURA Software


 

With its easy customization, on-the-go access, and multi-lingual support, CURA by mindSCOPE takes Applicant Tracking and Recruiting software above and beyond. With an emphasis on social media and SMS integration, CURA ensures that connecting with candidates and clients alike is simple and effective.

CURA understands that while applicant tracking and recruiting spans across almost all industries, it is a completely unique field with its own specialized requirements. The system was created to serve the needs of recruiters everywhere while still providing a medium that is adaptable to any industry or field. Most elements can be customized to reflect the terminology specific to any industry, making questionnaires applicable and relevant.

We like the emphasis on client and candidate interaction. With their unique SMS system, a recruiter can send a text to any candidate, no matter where they are. This text is then recorded into the candidate's specific profile, making it easily accessible for any future reference. CURA also makes use of social media, providing integration with Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. By making it easy for recruiters to create job-specific posts on company social media pages, CURA can target candidates that are interested in specific companies and businesses.

CURA has individual portals available to both candidates and clients. Candidates can submit personal information such as resumes, CVs, and pictures directly into the system database. The clients can then view this information as soon as they are granted access, and can begin to analyze each potential candidate within the portal itself. This feature-rich, flexible Applicant Tracking and Recruiting system is a great fit for any size recruiting or staffing agency.

The willingness to try and adapt the system to your needs. Its a one stop shop for all your needs including the integration to websites. There are a few areas that need addressing and improving, but this vendor really wants to improve and is willing to listen

Likes Least

A few issues have been slow to resolve and there have been a few glitches changing from US to UK terminology. The work flow in certain areas could be a bit cleaner and easier to follow

Recommendations

Be very specific about what you need the system to do for you and they will try and accommodate that. The company seems to want to improve its product - genuinely

Recommendations

I now go home at 6pm instead of sitting there clicking on CVs until 9pm at night. I have more of a life because it's saved time. The CV parsing is excellent. It's simple to use and nearly every part of the software - you can tailor to suit your needs.

In selecting software products, we had a long wish list of criteria. Of the five or so products we previewed, by far, CURA came closest to fulfilling our needs. Texting capabilities, interacting with our QuickBooks accounting software, and the smart way it builds our database and allows our clients to sign forms online have made our tasks more professional, efficient, and productive.

Likes Least

Some of the functions that made this software so attractive for our purposes have been add-ons, such as texting and the ability to sign forms online. Initially, navigating through all of these processes has been cumbersome.

Recommendations

Give yourself plenty of time in the implementation stages. Our learning curve/implementation processes have been about six months to have everything up to speed.

I find CURA to have a user-friendly interface and versatile ease of use. Although initially the "multiple ways to skin a cat" approach can be a little confusing for technophobes, it does provide a lot of options to customize the database based on the company's needs. The staff at CURA is very friendly, accessible, and helpful.

Likes Least

Compared to our previous software, there are a few extra steps required for certain processes, which is a bit time-consuming, especially with the learning curve. Personally, I find the benefits far outweigh any negatives, though.

Recommendations

If you do demo this software, be sure to verify specific needs in terms of credentialing processes, back end etc. There is much that can be customized, but within the limits of the product.

CURA is completely customizable to meet your specific requirements. The team at MindSCOPE worked with me to fine-tune CURA to my exact needs. I am a small business, but they made me feel like I was their only customer. They have awesome customer and technical support; it's a great product and a great team. You can't go wrong with CURA from MindSCOPE.

Not much but if I had a complaint (and I'm told it will be resolved in the next update), it would be that it doesn't function with browsers other than IE. The next update will allow it to be compatible with other browsers, so this will go away.

Recommendations

Do demos and talk to the vendor. You are partnering with them, and you want to make sure they can deliver. Plus, it doesn't hurt when you work with nice people.

Many staffing software options on the market today are very good at one thing - perhaps serving as a database for client and candidate recruitment tracking - yet they are not-so-good at another - let's say staffing job order tracking. Or vice versa. CURA manages to bring the best of both worlds and does so with a knowledgeable support staff. This is a requirement for our company, since we handle a wide spectrum of job opportunities, ranging from temporary one-day assignments to multi-year contracts to permanent placements.

We have a small recruiting business and looked at several software applications prior to deciding to work with Mindscope. The software is user friendly, and the training and support after have been fabulous. I have been very pleased with the entire company from the CEO to the Help Desk. You won't be disappointed if you decide to work with Mindscope for your software needs.

OnPar Solutions is a relationship brokerage firm primarily focused on Permanent and Contractual staffing solutions. In search for a the right CRM, Mindscope proved to be the most versatile in adapting to our model which differs from what a Staffing Agency would require.

The on-boarding process ran smoothly with great support from their customer service team. After initial set up and modification to our needs, training new users became a breeze. We are extremely satisfied with our decision to move our system over to Cura and hope to work with them for years to come.

Charles Foster Staffing & Executive Search is a local, women owned, business in Charleston, SC. We specialize in the placement of professional candidates in an array of industries.

We have used Mindscope for more than 10 years from its Legacy (server based) version to its online CURA version. The market for similar software is competitive and I believe that our loyalty to Mindscope over the years speaks volumes to their product, customer service, and customized training. As a result, we have not considered making a change as CURA manages all of our needs, and then some. We went through the transition from the server based version to the currently used online version. The volume of data was extensive and the accuracy in which that data had to be converted was no simple task. I found the Representatives at Mindscope to be incredibly helpful and responsive to our needs throughout the process.

Three members of our staff visited Mindscope's office in Canada for specialized training. It is always nice to meet your business partners and vendors face to face, and this was no exception. As expected, we were met with a high level of professionalism and thorough training catered not only to our company, but each individual user as well. Mindscope is always one step ahead of updating features that we may not have realize we needed. They are pro-active in seeking out more effective and efficient ways of utilizing their software and have always been open to suggestions from the end user. Their customer service is impeccable and it is safe to say that we are extremely happy with our experiences over the years. Mindscope will continue to be our software for tracking candidates, recruitment, sales and data management.

MindScope has been one of the best additions to our business. From customer service to technical support, the experience will set your business apart from the competition. Their vision sets a new benchmark for the industry. Their actions have consistently proven to be a success. From marketing tools, to the reporting system, to the actual resume database - it is very simple to use and compacts all the important features, thus creating the visibility you are looking for. I strongly recommend any company looking to improve their customer service to include this software in their business.

The CURA support team has been extremely responsive to all of our request and provided excellent training sessions to our users. We look forward to growing our business for many years to come and having MindScope CURA as a vital part of our growth process and success.
