    Pros

    Simplicity. It is easy to use and easy to teach. There isn't irrelevant information like many other programs require.

    Cons

    Tagging function can be improved to optimise use of data, so that you can search past applicants based on their skills.

    Without SCOUT, I wouldn't be able to manage our candidates - simple as that.

    Pros

    Simple interface, really effective reporting system which is great for exporting candidates. Fantastic support.

    Cons

    Increased email marketing functionality would be fantastic. To be able to build talent pools and then place them on simple, automated long term nurture journeys could make a real difference.

    Pros

    The system is really user friendly. The experience for applicants is very straight forward. We have noticed an increase in applicants and a reduced the number of system enquiries. Additionally, the support staff were patient and accommodating. I found them trustworthy and genuine which helped us make the move from our old system.

    Cons

    There aren't really any "cons". If we were picky, the only things we notice are that the panel shortlisting scores are visible prior to completion which could impact independence and when making a comment it is not clear who made the comments. Small things.

    Pros

    The interview calendaring feature on the software is fantastic. From the recruiters point of view it saves a lot of admin time and from the interviewees point of view they enjoyed being able to pick an interview time that suited them.

    Cons

    It would be great if the software could be expanded to include video interviews and APIs to plug into other systems.

    Ease of use, timely communication with applicants, SMS functionality, significantly lower need for printing, better and faster responses from interview panel members as they can do a lot of the preparation remotely. Huge reduction in admin. One stop repository for record keeping.

    Pros

    I have been working with Scout for several years now. At my former Council I was involved in the initial purchase, set up and implementation and I have to say it proved to be a huge asset for us when working through the heavy administration that a merger brings. Since moving to Richmond Valley Council as their Human Resources Coordinator, I have been able to train up staff quickly due to the system being so user friendly and the support almost instant. It has assisted greatly in moving from a paper based recruitment system to an almost paperless one. As a contemporary organisation focused on utilising technology to its full potential, we particularly like the SMS function and the ease of which jobs can be posted to external sites. Jobs are easy to clone which cuts down greatly on admin time and new jobs are easy to set up. Customer service agents are real asset. They are knowledgeable, friendly and remains very calm in all situations - a quality much appreciated! He has recommended valuable improvements and responded to feedback. I have used Alex for face to face training and can highly recommend him.

    Cons

    The entity structure although we are working closely with Scout to improve the set up. Visibility of template when sending event invites could also be an improvement.

    The use of the Scout Talent system is a large part of my job and I enjoy getting to work with it everyday.

    I find the system easy to navigate and make good use of features like emailing, sms, candidate statuses and ranking.

    Cons

    We gain massive benefit from our SMS feature but at the feature doesn't currently allow candidates to respond to our messages using SMS.

    SCOUT has revolutionised the way we handle recruitment at Gympie Regional Council. All information about a job or candidate, including Authorities to Recruit, can be handled or stored in the one system. Being cloud based means it is easily accessed off-site, and I am finding that my line managers across Council, including depot Managers are using it regularly and using it well. It has a clean and easy to look at interface, and it is extremely intuitive. I love it!

    Pros

    I like the fact that every piece of documentation regarding a candidate or a job can be stored in the system. This mitigates risk for Council from an adverse action perspective. I also like the ease of use, and the intuitive way the program operates.

    Cons

    I'd like to see some way of better managing a Talent Pool candidate list. Also, currently there is now way to directly link and Approval form to a job ad without saving it outside SCOUT and then attaching the form to the job ad as an attachment. This process is Ok as a work-around, but with all the intuitive functions of SCOUT, I would have though this could easily be achieved.

    I use Scout Talent Recruit on a daily basis, and have for the last 6 years. I find it easy, user friendly and an incredible time saver. It helps me sort through my candidates quickly, and is so helpful in managing all candidate communication. I love I can sort candidates and ensure I speak to the best applicants first. The team is also amazing and very supportive. I couldn't recommend Scout enough - makes recruitment so much easier!

    Scout is an effective, user friendly recruitment system that is backed up with great user support. We have found it great value for money in comparison to other organisational recruitment systems including some of the more popular ones with the same or increased functionality in most areas. Scout has been a key part in providing effective recruitment services to our organisation.

    We were previously using a paper-based recruitment process before this. Using SCOUT has resulted in a massive time-saving for us, it has streamlined our recruitment. After figuring out events and emailing by status, these functionalities have made things so much easier and I'm sure once I find out more about the use of approval forms and the other features, this will continue to improve things.

    We've have noticed the impact on time and efficiency since the implementation of Scout and feel that this will only become more evident as we use more of the extensive list of features available to us. The times when I've needed assistance with the system, the Client Success team has responded in a timely and efficient manner. It's always evident listening to the team that they're good at what they do. We have nothing but praise for Scout and the Client Success team.
