Incredible Software

I've never seen anything like it in all my years participating in every aspect of the hiring process. It makes sense, it's extremely well executed, and it adds so much value to the process for everyone involved. Right now this software would be globally successful and after meeting one of the rep and hearing what's on the roadmap this is truly a game changer. If you aren't using Pinpoint you're wasting your time!

Pros

How the team are approaching this is truly mind blowing. Without a doubt it accomplishes the task of sourcing and managing the recruitment process better than anything else out there. The app has a ton of small details that make it easy and pleasant to use for everyone from the applicant to the recruiter, hiring manager, and CEO. It's saved us so much time and money in our hiring and has helped us find talent we wouldn't have with traditional methods. If you don't believe me, ask for a demo. You'll see in the first five minutes why you should use this product and in the next five you'll see why this is going to be a globally successful tool that will disrupt the entire space. I'm the CTO at my company and we're constantly looking for tools to save us time, make us more efficient, and increase our value. I've never had a demo for something, then practically begged to sign up right then and there. They have such a talented team, good long-term strategy, and quality product it's going to be fun to watch them change how everyone currently thinks about this.

Cons

That I didn't find out about it sooner! After the demo I didn't have many questions about things I'd maybe want to see in the future and he had already thought of them

Product Review

The support and guidance that Pinpoint has provided us has been first class. They have supported us every step of the way right from pulling the business case together to training our people and continue to provide ongoing support to us. The feedback from our business on the software has been very positive. Pinpoint work in a very collaborative way and listen to our ideas and requirements and wherever possible provide a solution. The main driver for us for this solution was to reduce our time to hire, provide a better experience to our candidates and hiring managers, and reduce our reliance on agencies. After less than a month of having this solution we are already seeing the benefits.

Pros

Provides a great candidate, line manager and HR experience. Look and feel is very modern and easy to use Not only is it a recruitment portal but more important it is a talent sourcing tool

Cons

Nothing so far

Reasons for Choosing Pinpoint

Goodbye Recruitment Agencies, Hello Pinpoint!

Really couldn’t fault the customer service we have received, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] have been so helpful and professional throughout the implementation of Pinpoint and onwards.

Pros

Although we are relatively new to using Pinpoint as a recruitment platform, we can see its potential. Our aim over the next year or so is to reduce our reliance on recruitment agencies where possible and build up our talent pipeline so that we are effectively managing our recruitment requirements in-house. It's also great that applicants can speculatively apply even if there are no live vacancies, and Pinpoint manages the GDPR side of things. The customer service is also 5 stars!

Cons

Arranging interviews on the platform may be a bit too time onerous and complicated for Line Managers. At the moment it feels easier to review outlook calendars and send calendar invites the traditional way. Although to be honest, we haven’t utilised this element yet therefore it’s just an observation.

Hey Louise, thanks for the review! Appreciate the feedback around the Interview Scheduling functionality. Once you're ready to schedule your first interview, we'll get some time in the diary and I'll walk you through it step by step. I'm confident that once you start using it, you'll experience significant time-saving benefits. Great to hear you're happy with the customer service and really looking forward to helping you recruit great people over the coming year.

PinPoint Review

It's been a huge success internally, in terms of the on-boarding, embedding and daily use. We have cut agency fees and we now know that in the market our brand presence is strong. We've had positive feedback internally from hiring managers and even from candidates within their interviews, "they couldn't believe how easy it was to apply for the role". Overall, we have improved our candidates experience and by the time it comes to interviews the hiring team are also happy as they haven't had to jump through hoops to review CV's or arrange interviews, the progression is live and at their fingertips. The hiring team also really enjoy the fact that they can engage with candidates from the outset and it's empowering for them.

Pros

The software by design is simple to use and visually it's appealing. It's clean and also easy to navigate. I'm yet to come across a reluctant or resistant manager when training and demoing the system to them, they are all keen to embed the system and work with it rather than against it, which makes the entire recruitment process a lot less painful and a more positive experience for all.

Cons

The limitations in terms of design and extracting reports, although I believe that this is something that with time will further develop. It's been great to have been so involved from the outset to help further enhance PinPoint as a product with feedback from the users perspective i.e. adding in "withdrawn" options to candidates applications. The team are receptive to feedback and try to, where possible implement changes to make our lives easier. I would say however, that the chat function may not be fit for purpose in terms of requests. It's great to have a live chat when there is a query, however when using it frequently like I do when I try to look back and find a request or a conversation it's almost impossible. Chats are also sometimes getting missed and not picked up by PinPoint. I'd suggest that any formal requests i.e. social adverts/system enhancements are made via an email function which allows you to then view the audit of the conversation, whether this is integrated into PinPoint or done via Outlook. I think adding this functionality to PinPoint would streamline it though i.e. email the team as you would email a candidate.

Recruitment done right

An excellent example of software combined with passionate experience transforming the way recruitment is carried out.

Pros

Pinpoint is so powerfully simple, I was almost embarrassed to admit how much time and effort it has saved. It sorts out every headache recruitment can throw at you. We have a remote team across multiple locations so the ability to manage applications, have all candidate data in a collaborative environment without any worries that GDPR can throw at you is worth it alone, and that’s only scratching the surface. We are lucky enough to have high demand for positions so managing the speculative inbound flow of requests and CVs has always proved a challenge, In terms of time, regulation. And missing or forgetting about that perfect prospect. The candidate pipeline has proven to be the most powerful tool for us, and not one we Had identified needed to be solved. Finally it’s rare that software as a service is delivered with such passionate from the team. I’m used to the heavy contact pre sales world, but woefully used to that stopping the moment you hit sign up now. Pinpoint provide that rate service where you are buying into the software and humanware ecosystem. This is service as a service and the platform is only a piece of the jigsaw. If your used to the old way, or are using some of the more longer established online hr tool providers, i would consider this fresh approach. It really is in a league of its own.

Cons

Have found nothing negative yet. There have been a couple of things such as layout which a conversation with the Pinpoint and it’s either explained or a fix scheduled.
