Unresponsive sales team

Was a pretty good software but customer service/ sales failed me

Pros

I used this software for 4 years and even helped them by suggesting improvements that they did in fact use. I spent the time because I needed the product to be better. It did end up being a better product and was fairly good to work within based on our company workflow.

Cons

When I wanted to start a new account with a new agency they were very unresponsive, likely because I was small and had the need for just one seat to start with. It was bad customer service to not respond to my needs. Now I have grown and need multiple seats so I am going with a service that wants my business.

COMPAS is such a great system!

Pros

Video conferencing within the tool is amazing. Video Conferencing feature is a great way to collaborate with co-workers in other offices, ensuring all teams and departments are organized and informed.

Attractive UI, but that is as good as it gets. Far better products for the money.

Compas is a product that would be well suited for novice software users that are just looking for a place to store resumes, email, track jobs, etc.

Pros

Quick data migration got us up and running quickly. Compas has a pretty UI (user interface). They address product and user issues quickly.

Cons

Lots of clicks, wonky search, relatively easy to configure, support has been lacking, despite their eagerness to help resolve issues. We often find out that the system is incapable of meeting our requests/needs. Calendar in the system is significantly lacking. Not all fields in the database are searchable. Configuring search in the system is not easy and we find that even the vernacular is not consistent across all "modules" or "sections" in the database. As an example, to search contacts within a radius you search on the term "address", while in the applicant the term is "location". When entering data you can't add a state until you have a country entered, but you are asked to put in the state before the country, so you have to click down, then back up to populate the state. They don't integrate their job application portal with careerbuilder, so applicants on careerbuilder don't enter Compas directly, so lots of manual entry or lots of applicant emails, unless you drive applicants away from the career site (careerbuilder) to your job application page on your website. That said, applications drop significantly when you direct them away from the career site.

It was just okay...not great and not terrible

Pros

It had all the basics that other applicant tracking systems have. You could get by and have a great recruiting business with it.

Cons

Unfortunately, with the way we recruit and how we have our database it is just not a fit. We are not your typical firm and we do things differently than most. We need software that maximizes the use of data codes and copying information from employers and being able to namegather employees with in the same company and we have not see that functionality.

Excellent ATS

Pros

Great add ons and compatibiity with Chrome and great personalization tools. It lets you download extensions to integrate its usage with your web browser.

Cons

It has a steep learning curve, it has a lot of different ways of using it and sometime it can be overwhelming without the proper training.

Owner of small Staffing company

This is the best software I have found for our company. Based on our needs Compass has met our expectations, which is a tall order. I have demo’ed and used about 12 other platforms in the past aswell.

Pros

Excellent features and add-on products. Search feature is comprehensive, easy to use and effective. Tracking and reporting is easy and thorough.

Cons

Interface is not the prettiest. Tabs, backpage and opening new windows all need some work but manageable.

Not satisfied

Pros

It's very fast to find any applicant in the system. It's also easy to edit any table for an admin, no need any support by the vendor. Another thing that I like is the customer support, all the requests are being taken care of fast enough.

Cons

If you delete any option that has been added before but not being used anymore, it'll delete all historical data. The system should be flexible. It's not even possible to hide the options that aren't being used anymore.

Great CRM System for our Staffing Agency

Overall a great system that is good for companies with non-techy employees.

Pros

Compas is much more intuitive and easier to use compared to other CRM systems e.g., Salesforce. The UI is straightforward, the pages load quickly, and the steps make sense. Overall, in terms of inputting information, Compas hits the mark in almost all aspects. You do not need to be a CRM wiz or have extensive knowledge in order to enter information into Compas. This is a good and easy to use CRM program that works for our staffing firm.

Cons

Extracting data from Compas can be a bit of a hassle, and the reporting capability of Compas is a bit lacking. However, with time, I think they will be able to build a much better report system. Their willingness to work with their clients in creating reports is a huge first step.

Corporate Recruiting Review

This product is easy to use and helps us to keep all of our candidates in one location. We have the ability to take notes on them so that we can refer back in the future if necessary.

MyCompas staffing software for agencies (ATS)

MyCompas is the jack of all trades, master of none ATS. I'd like to highlight the elegant user interface, and their chrome extensions that easily let you input candidates from LinkedIn directly into the database with a few clicks. It does have a searchable database, but with the caveat of searching for specific criteria can be challenging at times. Overall, I think it is a solid choice for agency ATS options out there on the market. Also they are very speedy with customer service requests.

Pros

Chrome extension support.

Cons

Expensive per user monthly fees.

COMPAS

I've worked with COMPAS for the past two-years and their customer service has been exceptional. They have assisted us with every question and concern that has come up during recruitment.

Pros

The representatives are very quick to handle any questions and/or concerns that we may have. They have also improved their reporting capabilities over the past two-years.

Cons

Some of their functions could be improved in terms of the career's page, applications, and other applicant functionality.

Our second year with COMPAS!

COMPAS' software had become such a part of our day to day processes that we sometimes forget it's a separate piece of software. We use COMPAS everyday, for every new applicant, and it makes our operations seamless. We reviewed several CMS systems before deciding on COMPAS and saw a lot of features that we knew we would just never use. COMPAS has everything we need and because it is so easy and straight-forward, our new recruiters don't need much training before they are ready to start posting jobs.

Pros

Intuitive - does not require much training for new users
New Tabs/Layout - love that each click opens a new tab instead of navigating away from the job, client or employee you are already looking at.
Customer Service - everything we need is taken care of
Straight-forward - it gives us exactly what we need and doesn't try to up-sell products that don't make sense for our industry, internal staff capabilities, or budget

Cons

Literally nothing...

BetterHire Compas Review

I am new to recruiting and had to learn the system from scratch. Overall the system is easy to use, but I am sure there are some additional features and functionality that would help me become more effective and efficient.

Pros

I like that I can easily search for candidates utilizing parameters to identify the most qualified candidates.

Cons

Some of the features are not intuitive - for instance the search parameter you have to take a couple of steps rather than the system automate your selection.

Maybe the best system out there for recruiting agencies

Pros

The syrstem is very straight forward. However it has some uniques features that make it great.
I will say one of the best features is the email's sync and the search

Cons

I will like to have more hyperlinks to go to different sections. For example, on the applicats page you can see al the activity. I wish I can have hyperlinks to jump to the role or the company from there.
The interfaces are not great but they are ok

Best software for staffing agencies

Pros

Perfectly suited for agencies. Lots of time-saving tricks that go a long way to making your life a lot easier. The workflow is intuitive and well thought out. Very pleased with this software.

Cons

The training was rather short given the size of the software. Would have been better broken down into smaller chunks.

Great product and even better support

Pros

The front end process was very detailed in order to set us up for success. And generally, where other companies would stop there, the back end support has been wonderful as well. You aren't treated like a means to meet a revenue goal, rather you are treated as a partner whereas both parties feel successful throughout implementation. Oh, and the product itself is really good too.

Cons

I can't really say that I have suggestions for improvement.

Good...on the way to better...as we both reach for great!

Pros

You keep improving the product. I am impressed with how it gets better with every release.
Your customer support is very good. We really enjoy working with our rep. She is very responsive and knowledgeable.

Cons

1. You need to fix the importation of emails. I still can't assign emails I receive from LinkedIn or from my team members to a specific record. I have to now copy and paste emails into individual records rather than just assigning it to a record.
2. Still too many "clicks".

Continually improving

Pros

I have recommended COMPAS and will proudly continue to do so. My business partners have to be continually striving to be better. The industry moves quickly and technology has to at least remain current. COMPAS has done an exceptional job of staying ahead of the changes so that our team is able to quickly identify leading candidates and present in a timely manner. The customer service is exceptional and we feel that our suggestions and comments are taken into consideration as product enhancements are designed and released.

Cons

I am looking forward to the day that some of the applicant functionality is available for the contact profiles!
