Results driven, intuitive ATS.

I have used the Networx system for around 8 years, I have always been completely happy with all aspects from build, through implementation, and as an end user. It is a system that I have used now in five different companies, and due to the flexibility of having different modules, means it's a system that can meet the needs of any business. It is very intuitive, and as such has proved very popular with my hiring managers who obviously do not use it as often as I do. In addition, the customer service I have received has always been excellent.

Pros

The Networx system is flexible to the needs of your business, easy to build, quick to implement, and intuitive to use. It is very cost effective, especially when used with managed credits. This is another service which is very good way to advertise roles and have administrative support throughout your campaigns.

Cons

I have honestly say I've not found anything that I did not like about system, cost or customer service.

Reasons for Choosing networx

I have chosen Networx over these companies, due to flexibility/functionality, design, timeline and value for money.

Networx ATS

Capturing all applicant data etc. in one place is good - prior to this we were just relying on emails. Solves GDPR issues seamlessly. Have found Support to be somewhat inflexible and not always super responsive. Only having a ticketing system is a bit cumbersome - a chat option and being able to speak to a person as well would be better

Pros

It is pretty easy to use and the implementation was pretty straight forward

Cons

Lack of flexibility with reporting - there needs to be a report writing tool that is easier to use

Reasons for Choosing networx

Overall value for money and did what we wanted at the time

We have good news! Our brand new reporting module is due to be released later this year. This is part of the continuous improvements we make to our software. I will ensure that your comments are fed back to our Development team and acted upon where possible. One of our consultants will also be in touch to ensure your software is configured in line with your current requirements.

Networx

We have new ways of recruiting including Video interviews - compliance with GDPR and the opportunities to discuss future development. The system is logical and easy to navigate.

Pros

We have updated the system over the last 8 months to include our new On boarding and candidate journey, this incorporated revised online forms - e-mail alerts to all other departments within the Business and a bespoke candidate journey aligned with the business. The system allowed all aspects to be created specifically that has an impact on our new employee experience. The system is user friendly and is developing all the time.

Cons

Recruiting Managers can find the self selection interview process can be cumbersome at times.

Reasons for Choosing networx

The other products could not give us the solutions or benefits that Networx could.

Thank you Lynn. It's been a real pleasure working with you and the wider Aster team over the past 9 years. We have seen a lot of changes in that time and have grown the systems capability to a fantastic level. I look forward to many more years of working together and making the system even better.

Great option for in house recruitment teams

We are maintaining our ability to recruit in house without the need to resort to agencies and only only rarely need to advertise wider than the job boards within the Networx network.

Pros

We really like how user friendly and how flexible the system can be i.e. being able to tailor made application forms to suit the role, being able to make adjustments to the job advert once already live on the system as Networx regularly update the adverts with the aggregators, something our previous system wasn’t able to do. If you also use Cascade HR system the transfer from Networx into Cascade is also a brilliant tool as it has simplified and streamlined the process. It’s great that the candidates can also take control of their own accounts and if they decide to apply for multiple vacancies, it’s a quick and easy process for them to re-apply once a candidate account has been set up. We have also received a good customer experience each time we have used a credit for our high profile job roles. Our contact is always very helpful both on the telephone and very responsive via email.

Cons

It could be a little easier to make contact with Networx should the candidates or HR experience a technical difficulty. We log an online ticket each time and this could be a bit slicker.

Reasons for Choosing networx

Some enhanced functionality plus the smooth integration with Cascade.

Great system for the "hands on" recruiter

To sum it up - I'd hand on heart recommend Networx to the recruiters who like to be hands-on. It allows for SO MUCH customisation and can be tailored to suit you. Reviewing CV's back to back is seamless with simple workflows in place. Most things can also be branded so it's great for the candidate experience and utilising your colours/images/style.

Pros

- Custom workflows are brilliant to map out your own style/way of working - Branded email templates are super easy to configure - Sifting function for CV's is great (Quick sift is a god send and the Yes/Maybe/No Flags are super easy to use) - Easy to email CV's to hiring managers for review Customisable questions as part of the application form. Really handy for setting critiera such as "Do you have the right to work in the UK" or "Do you drive and have access to a car". You can also make these a word free text box - super easy to configure with multiple options. - Customer service team have always been helpful. Huge shoutout to [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] for always been on hand to help with issues and bounce ideas from - Interview scheduling tool. Block out time in your diary and then use the function to help make like easier After moving companies and experiencing a global ATS - I definitely feel I took Networx for granted.

Cons

- Can't search candidates by mobile phone number (Annoying when a candidate leaves you a voicemail but you can't distinguish their name) - No space for hiring managers to put comments next to CV's after reviewing. They're emailed over in a bulk (Vs seeing them on the system as a "restricted user" or something) - Can be slow at times and a little buggy. It's constantly in development which is good, but sometimes causes issues

Easy to use system

One of the problems we have resolved since using networx is the peak campaign volume now use the same system as our BAU process and allows us to keep things consistent all year round. We have also been able to introduce some situation based assessment from another company and this has been an integration piece of work which has been fairly seamless. We also have two different application processes one for our retail and volume roles and then another for our head office roles and with this platform we are able to have different approaches so we don’t have to one size fits all.

Pros

The UI for both and a candidate is clean and easy to use. I like the way that as a super user and a client you can pretty much customise most elements of the system yourself with very little technical knowledge - for example application forms, email templates, vacancy templates etc. The ability to support our volume campaigns every year is a key factor on why we continue to use networx and as such is has no issue in dealing with the application volume we attract. Account management and contact is very good and the team are always on hand to discuss future needs and keep you fully appraised on the road map of the system. On the odd occasion there has been an issue the customer service is efficient and effective. Overall a good system that is well supported.

Cons

Honestly there isn’t much I can think of for a system of this size and functionality. Generally is can do what ever you need and if it can’t then there is always a discussion to be had.

Networx Recruitment System Review

I'm really pleased with the overall experience, user friendly with a customer service team to hand should you need them.

Pros

Easy to use system - Networx advertise on most of the major job boards which means your vacancies can be viewed by a wide variety of applicants. It's an easy process from advertising a vacancy all the way through to appointing and closing the vacancy. We recently opted to receive on spec CV's which is going well we now have 50+ CV's to sift through for any future vacancies, the system was already built to be able to manage this function. The onboarding section saves time on posting out paperwork for the candidates to complete this can now be accessed by logging into their individual account. Good reporting system for all your stats. The system is often updated without an additional cost. Good feedback from Managers for shortlisting candidates. Overall very user friendly.

Cons

You can change some of the background set up yourself, I don't always feel comfortable doing this in case of errors, but Networx customer service is to hand should you need them. Person specification can take time typing these into the templates or copy and pasting, but once you have the majority of your person specs in place you can edit these should they be updated.

Flexibleand easy to use system

Our implementation team were very experienced and challenged our current processes to ensure we got the most out of the system. Implementation was very controlled and supportive. The team kept us up to date on status and raised queries when further information was required. The system has simplified our recruitment process and has enabled our time to fill to be reduced. When we moved away from our original implementation team things did change however after providing feedback on this service things changed again.

Pros

The system is very flexible to meet your needs and recruitment processes. Even if you have different processes across your business the system can cope with this. It is also very easy to use and feedback from other team members has confirmed this. The team will listen to our needs and provide options / solutions.

Cons

Some of the ad hoc reporting is not as flexible without extra cost however Networx have worked with us as to how we might be able to get the information we need in alternative ways.

Reasons for Choosing networx

Having had a presentation of the system with Networx and its capability along with feedback from another company who has the system.

Vert good product

We implemented Networx as we had previously been manually entering all application details and printing off all application form, this was time consuming and not good for the environment. We were looking for a system that was both user friendly and simplify the tasks that we were undertaking. We have good feedback from our managers who have used the system to shortlist and at interview and it has made our lives much easier in HR. The basic system is very good value for money, some of the add-ons however can be a little expensive.

Pros

Saves a lot of time, manager feedback has been good. They did not oversell the system, what they said it could do it does!

Cons

Some of the adons can be a little expensive, but the basic version is good value for money.

Great recruitment tool

Great from the beginning and support and service continues to be so. Saves so much time and so is actually very cost effective. No problem is too small (or big !) and very happy with the product and service at all levels.

Pros

Ease of use, speed that adverts can be placed, sifting can be done as quickly as humanly possible, ability to complete bulk actions, GDPR compliant, great customer service, very cost effective.

Cons

Nothing springs to mind! Only issue is that everything has to be posted on Indeed, as unfortunately they have the market cornered at present and i find them to be particularly unprofessional. Not Networx's fault and hopefully one day soon another company will give Indeed a run for their money.

Recruitment+ Review - 2 years in

Our overall experience has been very positive. They are responsive to changes we wished to make, could come up with solutions for what we were looing for, and we have seen candidate numbers and satisfaction increase across the board since a shift to using a Networx product.

Pros

The software is very intuitive to use, for new managers and staff they can pick it up easily, and are able to use it and interact with the software with minimal training

Cons

The interaction between Networx's software, and Cascade's single sign on functionality, doesn't always work as smoothly as would be hoped - signing in via the weblink seems to work however.

Good quality ATS, excellent value for money

Overall, generally good experience, I think any learnings are as much to do with what we would do differently in terms of implementation but perhaps Networx could have offered some guidance.

Pros

I find it quite a logical system that is quite quick to pick up, even if you haven't used an ATS much in the past.

Cons

I think it would be that there are some small, almost quite insignificant things that don't work as they should and it just takes the gloss off what is otherwise a sound system

Reasons for Choosing networx

Value for money was a key driver and quick to implement.
