Ideal system to support the complex requirements of the NHS

The system has enabled an optimised and efficient recruitment process delivering a great experience for candidates, managers and the recruitment team.

Pros

Configurable and adaptable for the complex recruitment requirements of the NHS.
Reliable and the support is excellent.
Very good features and a continuous development pipeline.
Reporting functionality is terrific.
The system supports the full end-to-end recruitment process from requisition to on-boarding.

Cons

Very little. Where opportunities to improve the system have been identified, Kallidus has responded through continuous development programme.

Professional system

Excellent - very supportive and definitely trying to make our user experience even better.

Pros

My team and I got started with Kallidus at the end of October so we're now 5 months in. The implementation was very straight forward and support was freely available where I needed help with any particular aspects of it. On the whole we've been very impressed and so have our stakeholders in the business.

Cons

My ownly negative comments are that during the sales process, I was only given information about the Professional system (I'd requested this but pretty much based on cost and number of hiring managers) but actually the basic functionality of this system is really quite limited and now we've been using it for 5 months, there are some frustrations with it. However, Kallidus have worked very closely with us to improve and upgrade the system as much as they can with no additional cost so far. If I'd known about the limitations, I'd have put a better business case together and gone for Enterprise.

Also, in any particular view, when you've applied location or division filters etc. if you go in to a candidate journey or click in to a vacancy and then back arrow to get back to your view, you lose the filters and have to apply them again.

Kallidus Applicant Tracking System

From initial contact to placing our contract via tender with Kallidus the support has been outstanding. The initial contact with the Team was very open and honest and not in any way 'salesy'. Kallidus have delivered on everything they promised in a timely manner. The whole experience has felt like a partnership rather than Client/Supplier

Pros

Very user friendly
Clear and concise in selection options
Can be tailor made to individual Company requirements - almost a bespoke package
Security levels have enabled us to to manage rollout to frontline recruitment as we can restrict user options

Cons

Nothing to report as the software has matched our specific Company needs

Pros

Candidate processes and seeing where each candidate is up to in the recruitment process.
Also the self scheduling facility is amazing! Saves us a lot of time from having to schedule candidates for their interview.
Layout is also great and very easy to use.
Candidates can apply through their mobile device as the site is set up for this.
Set up different views for different situations.

Cons

Not being able to have more application form options.
No cons really as everything i seem to like!

User friendly & simple to follow

Really good.

Pros

The function's are very useful, user-friendly and simple to tell / show another person how to use it. Does near enough everything we need.

Cons

I would much prefer a function where, as we receive and send emails from / to an email address of a candidate registered on Kallidus, the email to migrate into their file as lots go in & out of Outlook and it would be a much better function to have the trail in there should it be needed, as I have had in other software, previously.

Streamlined, fast and effective

Kallidus Recruit offered a competitive pricing model that allowed us to get up and started quickly. The ability to drive mobile applications was key and an experience for the end user that was seamless and effective.

Pros

Knowing that most of our candidates apply by mobile, we wanted a solution that would enable us to fulfil this experience in the best way possible. We felt that Kallidus Recruit gave us the best mobile experience, with some great features for candidates. A nice looking dashboard has helped with easily accessible metrics on time and cost per hire which we were not able to do before.

Kallidus Recruit - Deep professional product

The business and support available is second to none, Support team has provided countless support to us and we have used this product for many recruitment campaigns.

Pros

The level of depth you can achieve via analytics as well as the ability to maintain a clear pipeline of candidates.

Cons

Software can be difficult to use and isn't particularly user friendly, especially for BackOffice users.

Kallidus Review

Pros

- the Customer Support function responses to my queries quickly
- the system is nicely designed and easy to use
- there is a good and clear visibility of open roles and candidates which we have been able to design to our needs

Cons

- there are some functions missing which I would have assumed would have been automatic which are not. Causing significant extra admin work
- the reporting updates overnight, difficult to get real time exports from the system

Feedback

Pros

It is easy to find vacancies and candidates and review their applications. We have just gone through a huge upgrade of the system and am looking forward to using the updated system and learning abut its new features

Cons

I find that I have to move the candidates backwards and forwards so that the manager has access and sight to progress. This will hopefully be much better with the new upgrade to the system
