Pros

The BrightMove team is always available to answer any questions you have and solve any problems, their customer service is excellent. In addition, we've been working with them for about 4 years now, and they are continually striving to enhance the ATS platform and add improved functionality and speed. BrightMove is a great value. We would recommend them without hesitation.

When there is an issue and site has billing issue for whatever reason - the ATS is pulled and then when issue resolved it takes a while to retrieve data. Jobs are sent to be posted and they never appear on job boards.

Pros

It tracks applicants and it allows for parsing of resumes and posting of jobs on the site. That's it.

Cons

Customer and training Svcs is limited - the automatic external postings don't get posted except one.

BrightMove is very easy to use and helps to streamline my process. The customer support live chat feature is wonderful and allows me to continue to work instead of staying on the phone with a customer service rep. There are a couple of features that I would like to see come back (hourglass resume function, being able to print out placement details). Overall it works very well for my recruiting needs.

Pros

Customer support chat feature, ease of use

New update has some bugs, took away some good features

The system is fast , profiles have the necessary information to deal recruiters.
I think improvements could be made in relation to that sometimes when one is in median income of a candidate the system does not work.
No thanks I'm done

Likes Least

Sometimes its kind of confused. Sometimes profiles have irrelevant information . It has many options to write information when one is getting the info that sometimes is not relevant.

Recommendations

I think the system needs a renovation , looks very simple compared to other HR systems .

In aesthetic restoration it is needed .

In relation to content , the system will have many options to time that information is entered, which are unnecessary .

The customer service is great. It is very easy to figure out, user friendly. I like that your jobs go out to free job sites.

Likes Least

You have to go through several unnecessary steps to put employees on an order. You have to do the set up on your own, example setting up triggers to change someone from available to working, and then back to available when the job ends. It is hard to get everything set up to flow correctly. The system seems to run slow, a lot of wasted time waiting for things to come up.
When you do a search and pull up a person, when you go back to your search, it somehow goes way back to a search you did earlier, so you have to type in the search criteria over and over.

Recommendations

Research the customer service, check references, understand it will take a little time to get it all set up.

The vendor has excellent customer service. The product provided is decent for the price you pay. The functionality makes it easy to train new employees on. Searches are easy to maneuver and the customization for this system is very flexible. I would recommend this to a start up company.

Likes Least

I least like the following:

Implementation is lacking: While there are tools in place to teach you how to put triggers into place unless you understand technology on what I'd describe as an intermediate level they may not function the way you'd like them to. The owner of our company stated that when they purchased the system for use any customization beyond the standard template software had to be completed on their own. When I started working with Brightmove there were many triggers that did not function the way they were intended to for what the owner needed. Simple operator error that I was able to fix, but it's not exactly simple for a person not as familiar with some of the tech intel.

Data Manipulation: Data Analytics is hard to gain with this system accurately. There are multiple ways to manipulate the data and therefore makes it almost impossible to set tiered goals for the staff as the data is then not broken down completely. The numbers can be spoofed due to this oversight.

Recommendations

I would look carefully at it before deciding it's right. The price is very fair for a start up company and the system is definitely easy to navigate. However, there are some downsides as well. The downsides, however make it worth the price you pay for it as a more polished system might be slightly more expensive. I think that we have stuck with this system for so long due in great part to the fact that our company was able to make it work and the customer service is above par. However, as we are moving into a mid level range we are definitely open to other options now.

The name Brightmove is not as well recognized when I recommend it. Probably just as well that more of my competitors have not found this tool.

Pros

Functionality, search capability, feature request are just a few of the positives. This product will make you more effective, more efficient and truly more capable at whichever side of the Placement, Staffing and /or Hiring side of the employment equation you reside. I have used many of the well known and top rated products in 20+ years of both Search and Corp Talent Acquisition. Brightmove belongs at the top of the list!

Pros

You can easily parse resumes and create profiles. We have a chrome extension added to this site (Text Recruit) that allows us to text from Brightmove and stores the conversation history that is super helpful. It would be great if Brightmove had similar built in features without having to manage a separate software.

Cons

Refreshing the jobs is cumbersome. The website is less user friendly with too many options that we don't use. The reporting is less useful...if I want to pull all candidates in submitted status I just want to click a button and not run a full report. Better yet, I would like that report to have hyperlinks to the candidate's profile or job so I can work off of the report.

Pros

It is really useful that you can easily access what you recently saw, either recent positions, managers, candidates.
The option to parse the resumes is also a great pro for BrightMove, if you have to manually add a candidate, the system would do it for you by just attaching it.
Also you can modify your Dashboard to show only what you really need and want to see, for example your open jobs, so you won't miss any.

Cons

Something I could say can be better about BrightMove, is the Power Search tool, I have to say this one works, I just think it can be refined a little bit. The filters could be better, they could be more specific so the search would be more accurate and would show only the information requested to the system.
