Broadbean Software


 

Broadbean is a cloud-based recruiting platform that utilizes a network of job boards, social networks and other online recruitment channels to distribute postings around various job portals. Featuring four main modules (BroadbeanPosting, BroadbeanSearch, BroadbeanSocial and BroadbeanReferral), Broadbean helps recruiters to source and track potential candidates.

With BroadbeanPosting, users can instantly distribute job postings to various of online channels. As candidates begin to apply, recruiters can manage applicant responses and fine-tune which channels they're posting to in order to monitor performance and manage the recruitment process. Finally, users can use BroadbeanSearch to find previously sourced candidates—along with any potential candidates on LinkedIn or other resume databases—to find a good match. Employees can also recommend a friend or acquaintance as a candidate using the BroadbeanReferral portal.

Broadbean supports integration with third-party applicant tracking systems and websites and supports mobile recruiting on iOS, Android or Blackberry devices.

Pros

The ability to post jobs quickly to the paid boards from Bullhorn. If you want to post quickly to Dice, it is a must have as their is no posting integration that is native to Bullhorn

Cons

The way candidates are brought into the system and some past experience we had with fields being auto populated. it may have been fixed, but we just don't use those fields for data

I love how quickly you can post to 10+ sites at once. Overall the site is easy and intuitive for all of our users.

Cons

Some of the functionality of Indeed.com is lost when accessing through Broadbean (nothing major though)

Pros

nothing

Cons

Very slow to implement (3 months) so don't get in a hurry. Also, very very tedious and labor intensive process for getting all the "free" websites setup in advance which you have to do (not broadbean).

Overall it is easy to work with support and is almost always up and running as a service. Broadbean also has a good amount of integration options for whatever applicant tracking system you are currently using.

Pros

Very good user interface for recruiters to use while searching for candidates and for passive recruiting. Job posting is also very straightforward.

Cons

No auto user provisioning makes it a pain to add users to another system. Manually changing credentials could be a smoother process as well.

Pros

Ease of use is what took our company from Daxtra to Broadbean. The user-friendliness of Broadbean was much better than competitors. Our user found fewer issues with the integration with our ATS. The concept of shortlisting matched out compnay terminolgy as well, which made training much smoother.

Cons

Support can tend to point the finger at the other vendors. Since Broadbean deal with all the job boards, we tend to see that they would alwasy point the finger at the other vendors when there are issues.
