Easy to use and has a great customer support team. Ideal for smaller recruiting companies.

Pros

The ATS is very user friendly and easy to learn. The customer service is also better than most and they truly are there for you. Any questions or issues that we have, someone is available to help us out right away. They have also been able to customize some features just because it would benefit our company.

Cons

The reporting feature does not always seem like it is accurate. It would make things much easier to have one solid report to be able to pull all accurate numbers from. I have noticed that the application process has glitches every now and then. However, they do a good job jumping on the issue right away to try and fix it.

Great software that's affordable and customizable.

Easy to start, easy to learn to use, and limitless options to customize yourself.

Pros

Great value for the monthly cost. Fields are easily customizable along with processes. Integrates with email and has an internal job board posting that is connected to probably 100 social media/external sites. Resume parser is one of the best out there. Easy and even has a Chrome Extension for LinkedIn. Dashboard is easy to navigate and customize.

Cons

When you open attached resumes from clients, they aren't in the format they submit them in. More like a text type doc so a lot of the formatting is removed.

Keeping track of my recruits never got so easy!

Pros

I use to keep track of my potential recruits in folders in Outlook, but after getting access to Brightmove, it's been a night and day change. From initial email to acceptance, Brightmove keeps me on the right path.

Cons

I wish that I had access to Brightmove sooner. It's so much easier to work with than I thought it would be.

I have used BrightMove for almost four years and it has been a pleasant experience.

The customer service is excellent the software is very user friendly.

Pros

The software is very easy to use and to navigate around. The reporting is easy to read and very useful when we have to present data to our clients. The customer service is excellent and they are always willing to listen to our concerns.

Cons

The application process for our candidates have not been the best. They system is not compatible for all users and candidates have had trouble trying to apply using their phones at times. There seems to be glitches every now and then in the application process.

I love using BrightMove

The only reason I rate BrightMove as 4 Stars instead of 5 Stars (and 9 instead of a 10) is because I don't believe there is a perfect system for everyone.

Pros

Having worked in Recruiting / Hiring since 1993, I have used lots of systems over the years and can confidently say BrightMove is my favorite system. I think it is very intuitive and easy-to-navigate. And if-when I am ever not sure how to do something, I can find an answer to my question fairly easily on my own or by contacting a Customer Support person in the U.S. who is easy to understand (instead of someone overseas who has a thick accent and makes me repeat everthing multiple times).

Cons

I wish there was a Auto-Login feature or a "Keep Me Logged In" feature so I wouldn't need to put in my Username and Password every single time I want to use BrightMove.

Great price for great recruiting software

Pros

BrightMove is solid recruiting software at a great price. Parsing works very well. CRM and Applicant Tracking System works very well.

Cons

It is easy to get caught up in trying to customize too much and then it robs you of productivity. Can't see employees at each stage of the pipeline at once.

GREAT!

Pros

This is a very easy to follow and learn software to organize and provide a better system to staffing agencies.

Cons

It has been great to work with both the people and reps but we definitely got the value for what we paid for and that is by far the best feeling. The only issue I can point out is that sometimes it can get real slow and often freezes our computer.

Customer support is unbeatable!

Pros

The power search options make it easy to narrow down what you're seeking. Since I help create and post the jobs, the templates provided also ensure that you don't miss the most crucial information in the job postings.

Cons

No cons that I've experienced. Is it possible that the software is too amazing? Honestly, the only issue I've had is the information sorted didn't stay that way when I switched from job posting to list again. My overall user experience is not tainted by this in the least.

User friendly and easy to learn and train. Great organizer

Pros

East navigation and documentation for candidates info and notes, etc. All team members have real time access to searches and project.

Cons

Scheduled maintenance and updates are usually completed in the most inconvenience time of the day. Also, customer and training services are limited, and the automatic external postings don't get posted except once a day.

Amazing Value for 1-Person Recruiting Dept

Ability to organize mass amount of recruiting data contained in excel spreadsheet and tabs

Pros

Customer service, ease of use, cost effectiveness, wiki page is pretty helpful although needed help finding the specific topics. I sent several questions a week through the Help feature and they are ALWAYS responded to quickly. Major tech glitches were resolved within 24 hours. Ability to create my own career portal and get it up and running almost completely by myself (with some guidance from Customer Service).

Cons

Candidate and job profile pages are pretty busy and am unable to remove a lot of the fields I don't need; would like photos to display if candidate's LinkedIn profile is linked

Easy to navigate, source candidates, great feed to recruiting sites with no additional fees.

See review submitted

Pros

The feature I like the most is the feed to additional sites with no additional charges. Brightmove posts positions to Indeed, Simply Hired, Glassdoor and Zip Recruiter. Very easy to look for candidates if someone calls, provides space to write screen notes, can source candidates within data base with key words. Also, I like to export reports into excel from this application.

Cons

Not really sure if there is a feature that I do not like. The customer support has been very good as well. Not any negatives from my point of view.

Just wonderful from day one!

Pros

Although we are new to it, the resume search feature was huge for us, because other ATS' don't offer that feature.

Cons

I can't say anything yet because I am still new to the system, but as with any system, the initial set-up and creating templates is not my favorite thing to do, although absolutely critical in the success of any recruitment process.

Super easy DB to use, nice to use something that works well, easy to access, and super user friendly

Ease of use, access it anywhere.

Pros

That is not some choppy custom site that goes down all the time. I can access anywhere I am traveling or working, and has all the categories I need the sales team to fill out, so I have the info I need without tracking them down for one question.

Cons

Nothing I can think of at this time. I have had no problems accessing the system from any location I am working.

Great portal for Recuiters

Pros

BrightMove for HR is a great software for recruiters, it has a facility for Self Service Portal where applicant can directly fill-up forms and apply for specific position. It has also connection to other Job Publishing company for the distribution of Jobs. Many more exciting features awaits for recruiters to make task simpler and enjoyable.

Cons

With this tools, expect many interested candidates/application for posted jobs. This takes time for proper screening to get the qualified candidates.

I feel like BrightMove is very easy to use and a great tool! I was able to pick up quickly.

BrightMove has saved me time by posting positions on different sites, which is one less thing I have to do. The system is very easy to use and I have been very pleased with our candidate pool!

Pros

What I like most about BrightMove is the ease of use. I was able to learn the system very quickly and find it very valuable. We have identified some great candidates through the system. It has saved me time which a major plus!

Cons

Sometimes it runs a little slow and I have to wait a few seconds when clicking from candidate to candidate.

I love using Brightmove, it's so user-friendly and easy to organize information!

It is so easy for us to organize all of our client and candidate information so that unnecessary information isn't in the way of the specific things that I am working on!

Pros

I love that Brightmove allows me to put my jobs into a folder for just me, because I can find what I'm looking for very easily and go through my co-workers jobs if they need me to do something for them. I also really love how we can customize all of the templates that we need!

Cons

My least favorite thing is that after you rate a candidate, the page re-adjusts while loading so you might accidentally click on a resume that you didn't mean to click on.
