RESUMate software


RESUMate's best-of-breed applicant tracking system automatically stores candidate records and allows recruiters to convert Word documents, PDFs and LinkedIn profiles into resumes within RESUMate’s system just by importing them.

Once resumes are in the system, RESUMate automatically populates fields, including candidate name, address and past jobs and education. Recruiters can take notes directly within each candidate’s profile, or create customized forms for interview sessions, which they can upload to each candidate’s profile.

There are two versions of the software, RESUMate Lite and RESUMate Pro. RESUMate Pro builds on the Lite version described above, allowing recruiters to send and track emails to individual candidates, or entire groups of candidates from the homescreen. Recruiters can also use RESUMate Pro’s Boolean search function to scour RESUMate’s database for applicants with specific skills, or who live in a particular location. 

Finally, because RESUMate is a program that end users install on their computer, companies must only pay a one-time fee to use the software, as there are no monthly subscription fees.

Supported Operating System(s):
Windows 7 , Windows Vista , Windows XP , Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 2000 , Windows 8

    Pros

    It is really, really inexpensive recruiting software that allows basic functionality like parsing, applicant tracking, keywords.

    Cons

    There is little to no support to conversions so you basically lose all your existing data if you make the switch to RESUMate. Ok if you are starting from scratch.

    Pros

    Searching for things based on date the data was entered is easy. It also had a great "keyword" search feature.

    Cons

    Any information listed on a candidates profile notes could be altered through edits or deletion. You also could not easily match a job to a candidate using just their profile.

    All in all a good product for a small to mid size firm that wants their data be hosted internally (though for an a monthly fee you can get a cloud based version).

    Pros

    Solid ATS program to track both candidates, jobs, and clients. Unique searching of parsed resumes.

    Cons

    Wish the internet connectivity was stronger. initial set up time can be tedious. Making sure valid table with appropriate entries for your industry can be time consuming. Boolean searching is sluggish because of being unindexed.

    Affordable ATS for smaller, cost conscious recruiting companies that can get the job done, but definitely has some limitations.

    Pros

    Affordable for smaller recruiting firms
    Easily Customizable
    Responsive customer support
    Desktop version

    Cons

    Memory limitations cause loss of data (BAD!)
    Limited advanced functionality (ie: no email templates, inability to pull data and parse from social media and job boards)
    Compatibility issues with certain functions
    Responsive customer support but not always effective at resolving problems, thereby making the product less effective

    The reports were lacking but i have the ability to work with that.

    It's great for keeping candidates and clients organized. I also really like how easy it is to extract an excel spread sheet from the system.

    The system is user friendly, but I think that it could be more user friendly. This way it's not necessary to take classes on how to use the system.

    Resumate is a great tool to help me stay organized in every area of my business. Marketing, Recruiting, Keeping Searches Organized, Planning & everything ties together. When you update one record in Resumate, it updates all associated records, - Clients, Candidates, Job Orders and you can even create Groups to act as separate planning folders. Resumate is a great product, and a wise investment.

    I've been using Resumate for around ten years in my contingency search firm. It is easy to use, imports and parses resumes and conducts easy searches and detailed searches very quickly. It comes with templates but is also totally customizable. It really lets you drill down and find what you're looking for! The training is great (and free) and the customer service is beyond believable. The few times I've had a problem, Chuck gets back to me quickly and helps me solve my issue in a patient, easy to understand manner. Because the software is not cloud based, I paid once and do not pay recurring fees every month. I had used ACT and Maximizer previously - Resumate is a much better product for recruiters! I highly recommend it!

    We have used Resumate for a number of years. As our business has grown and evolved we have been able to continue using Resumate. It is a very flexible system and allows us to capture a huge amount of data. With this we are also able to do a lot of analysis and reporting on our business. Resumate is user friendly but does require a company to have a type of "super user", or someone with a little knowledge about databases. But Resumate do provide very good support for those with questions.

    This software is simply the best that I have used in my 15 years in business. With Resumate you can import resumes (that get automatically parsed and classified), manage clients, manage all your Job Orders, and your calendar. It integrates with Outlook and what's very helpful is that you can quickly use Resumate to find all the e-mails sent to a candidate or client. It parses resumes very well and comes with some predefined industry terms and synonyms that you can easily customize to your needs. You can literally import a resume in a matter of seconds and have it automatically classified against your own keywords. Another great thing is that once you buy it, it's yours. None of this cloud based, monthly fee business where you have to have an internet connection in order to work.

    I have had nothing but positive results with the RESUMate software, it handles everything I need as a recruiter. I personally believe it has to be one of the best recruiting software on the market and they are very inexpensive compared to other programs I considered before selecting RESUMate. I have no negatives at all. The ongoing online seminars they provide for free really are unbelievably helpful and free!

    Resumate is AMAZING...changed my business

    I searched through nearly 10 different recruiter type databases and NONE were even close to RESUMATE, especially for smaller recruiter firms, though RESUMATE has no real size limit on how many recruiters can work within the system. It is so easy and so amazingly functional and the ability to email or look up an entered candidate on LINKEDIN...(so great) from within the candidates profile is a MUST for every recruiter. This is a more old school simple to use program that has almost everything imaginable feature, that will enhance your internal organizing of every facet of the process, and I mean every single thing imaginable and more. The biggest thing is the detailed search in seconds...the "AND" or "OR" ability of finding matching skills (candidates) is incredible and in seconds. You can find (for example) and engineer with A "OR" B skills "AND" C skills. You can add what states to include or NOT include and you can add levels such as Directors or Managers and even more, all in one search (though as expected the results will be smaller the more you refine your search). It is so comprehensive and easy and once you have the results you can X-OUT the candidates that do not qualify leaving you a group of real fit possibilities. And all I can say is for the most part, it is fairly simple, as complex programs go. As for their support, it is first rate. I have been using RESUMATE for about 3 years and I RARELY have a problem and if I am trying to do something a little different, they are right their to help. You get a real person that knows the program inside out, no outsourced look up the answers in a book, tech response. They do live webinars that I still occasionally take (they are only 30 minutes and they do about 5or 6 a month ) on different areas of the program...I learn or am reminded of a new trick or idea each time. I am not getting paid and I have NO relationship to them whatsoever...I am honestly saying that RESUMATE is so well thought out, so easy to use, so helpful in so many ways and for the money (or at any price) is unbeatable.

    As with any program, there are functions that we still haven't learned to use - and a couple functions that we wish the program had - but I've used several others in the past, and Resumate is the most economical and user friendly of them all. As our company has grown, Resumate has grown with us. Very easy to train new staff - and any questions or further training is easily and quickly addressed when contacting the company. Five Stars!! *****

    I had used ACT....a simple Contact Management Software for almost 14 years before switching to RESUMate back in 2010. I had continued to look for simple recruiting software every other year and could never find a replacement that met my needs until RESUMate. RESUMate is a simple to use but powerful recruiting software. I can inhale a resume easily and create a contact, tag candidates, keyword search, track interviews and activity and even more. I am a time bandit and a firm believer that the quicker I can find what I need and move to my next task the better. RESUMate allows me to do just that without too many keystrokes or clicks. Should you want to customize or need customer service they are a small and smoothly run organization with very quick response times. I actually run RESUMate on a server and have three remote users that log into it..........in essence I have my own cloud and we enjoy a quick response time with no down time. I would highly recommend RESUMate on your short list of recruiting software. Funny, I belong to a national group of independant recruiters (500+) and one complaint they often have is their database software. Not me. RESUMate is a powerful and simple recruiting software.
