Absolutely nothing, there are still using old school specs and almost no functionality is complete.

Cons

The character limit would not allow me to - outdated specs, unqualified implementation team, poor communication, endless follow up's, parsing issues, no product training module available and so on......

Pros

Tons of functionality, lots of add-ons to compliment your business, easily customizable, plenty of features and priced right

Cons

Not to much is wrong with this product. One thing on our wish list is more functionality on the calendar feature, specifically to be able to add more than one hiring manager to the interview within Zoho.

If you need a UI-centric place to store data, and you are on a budget, I can't imagine you'd find a better place. For us, this was the necessary stepping stone for between Excel and when we had enough revenue to license a proper CRM/ATS. Basically: I was very happy we did this for 18 months, but when it was time to leave it was a relief.

Pros

Zoho is very user friendly, very customizable, and extremely affordable. We were able to add and delete fields almost everywhere we wanted to, and I felt that the navigation and search functionality were very user friendly - required not much training.

Cons

The monthly (which I couldn't find anywhere else for a comparable product) price is allowed - near as I could tell - by the lack of support. It didn't make me too angry because you can't have a CRM at this price without sacrificing something, but you should know up front support basically doesn't exist. Also, there isn't much functionality around tracking activity - so be aware of that before you buy.

If you are in startup stage, then this is the right choice.

Pros

Good price, most needed functions are available, don't take too much time for setup.
You can access from anywhere with just an internet connection.
I think it is one of the top recommended apps for startups.

Cons

Maybe one thing i hate about it is the interface design is old and there is little innovation in design.

This product has a very low cost only per user per month. Other than that, there is no other reason to recommend this product.

Cons

The free job sites that they post ads to are sites no one has heard of. The reporting is inaccurate and though several attempts were made over the course of months, customer service has yet to resolve. Overall this is one of the worst Applicant Tracking Systems I have ever come across.

Great ATS. I have recommended this to many friends.

Pros

I use it for candidate entry and it's a seamless process. There are other ATS software that have more options but Zoho offers plenty for what I use it for!!

For the cost of the enterprise level you can find a much better system with better support.

Pros

It’s a very basic system.

Cons

There is no implementation specialist to assist in getting the system started or learning the features of the system. Most ATS supporters provide some sort of training on how to use the system. Zoho does not provide that. All support is off-shores and extremely difficult to get a response from in a timely manner.

A lot better than using excel files and emails for tracking candidates! It's a great price and has tons of cool features. However, if you're a beginner at setting up a new system.. probably not the best software for you.

Pros

Great prices, and a lot of great features. Customized work flows, options for automating steps and emails. Love the feature where you can add phone calls and track all forms of communication.

I strongly urge you to give Zoho a try - you won't be disappointed. And don't let the price fool you - they pack a lot of punch into this product.

Pros

Incredible value for the money. Competes with the best ATS systems on the market and beats them! Easy to use, massive customization options, impressive functions. Lots of integrations with other Zoho products and other awesome extensions.

Cons

The only thing I find missing is one report to show bounced emails. That's the only issue for our team. Other than that...it's all good.

I have not had one single technical issue. That's a HUGE PLUS! I have used and evaluated several of the big recruiting platforms. I'm super impressed with Zoho!

Pros

I love the low price - we have just one user and needed an easy-to-use solution to store resumes, interview notes, sources etc. I can only speak to using it for hundreds of resumes (which I do), versus thousands. I'm not sure how it would perform then. There are a lot more features to use - like tracking job requirements. They have a lot of customizable features (that you do yourself).

Cons

There are a lot of reporting options but it's not quite as intuitive to use as I'd like. I need to work with it more.

9.5/10 over all and definitely a go!

Pros

A difficult task that I have to deal with most of the time is the process of applicant tracking, especially for job areas that are rarely filled-in. I found ZOHO Recruit and it helped me more than I thought it would. The possibility of a job board posting allowed me to spread the needs of our company through job list websites with ease. It allows scheduling of possible interviews with clients that I have chosen, sending them emails for tentative dates. It also keeps a database for employee records which is a great organizational move for me. I adored its organized and clean process of keeping track of applicants and their files. The minimalist feeling of the theme also hooked me in, it looks simple and is easy to use.

Cons

The lack of filtering possibility for candidates is a bit bothersome. Especially regarding important demographic details such as age which is really important for our job requirements.

Tracks and manages applications with ease and in an organized manner. Integrations with the G Suite is the biggest edge that hooked our team in. The integration made using ZOHO Recruit easier.
