    The customer service is so good - the phone is picked up quickly by knowledgeable, helpful and friendly staff. They've ironed out any issues and also actioned my requests for additional database features. I'm really happy after 5 months using the product.

    Pros

    It's easy to use, has excellent features and a user-friendly layout, the pricing is very fair and the customer service is fantastic. They also extended my free trial when I asked to have more time.

    Cons

    There are some missing features but these are updated regularly and they will quickly respond to and act on suggestions.

    Consolidate tool to manage global ITSM processes

    Pros

    Chameleon enabled detailed and custom process and configuration. This was a pro and a con, we created some very power workflows.

    Cons

    Customization and eloborate configurations was a detriment when it comes to release planning and maintenance costs

    Great software, talented and hard working support team that work to understand your business - overall a great provider that we have worked with for 8 years +

    Pros

    having worked in recruitment for a number of years across 3 different businesses using 3 different CRMs Chameleon-I is easily the best Database Software.
    Its the most intuitive for ease of use and training team-members on. General functionality and flexibility to tailor to exact requirements we need has been great with a few bespoke reports and updates specific to our use and best practice have been supported and developed.
    The support - especially has been outstanding and they take ownership to ameliorate the occasional issue and bring to successful conclusion.
    As a team they seem proactive, experts and ahead of the rest of their competition.

    Cons

    CMS aspect is a little clunky to get your hear around initially - few trial and errors when tailoring templates - again this is bespoke though and the general Templates for communications (client and candidate) are more than adequate

    Nothing else other than we like Chameleon-i and highly recommend, in fact, I have already recommended a couple of friends to Chameleon-i who are now using and are equally impressed.

    Pros

    Ease of use, modification to our business, customer support is excellent (Noemi is particularly helpful), lots of functionality, syncs with Outlook, LinkedIn etc, Cloud-based and good value.

    Cons

    There a couple of searches I'd like to be able to run which aren't possible. No major issue as there are work arounds.

    I have been using Chameleon-I for over 6 years and always been very satisfied and any issues have always been resolved quickly.

    Pros

    New recruits can pick it up quickly and once they have completed the training they understand the basics and can start working.
    Regular updates to improve the system.

    Cons

    No major problems but there are always improvements which could be made. I would like to see options which would make the system more specific to my own business.

    I initially went with Chameleon-i as a start-up business due to the feature set and pricing. As my business grew, I’ve been able to take advantage of Chameleon-i’s Blueprint Website service and many integrated partners – It’s also allowed me to offer flexible and off-site working for my staff. Currently waiting for database partitioning so I can split data and only show it to relevant consultants - have been advised it's on its way.

    Pros

    - Web based; Can access anywhere
    - Quick Loading
    - Dedicated account manager and support for all staff members
    - Frequent product updates
    - Easy to use and free training for all users

    Improved workflow. Smarter searching and great access to historical knowledge. It's wonderful at presenting your information to your clients and candidates in a professional manner. We couldn't live without it.

    Pros

    Cloud based so we could lose the expensive MS-SQL servers we had and all their licenses.
    Love the Word Template linking feature. We use it every moment of the day for different things.
    The candidate shortlisting is spot one.
    The consultants enjoy the ease of use. New consultants are trained quickly.
    Very adaptable.
    The support is great and the developers listen to common sense (and use).
    Clear and simple work flow.

    Cons

    Not very flexible for contract recruitment. It works but it works its way and our clients don't!
    They listened to our issues and have scheduled in time for the changes (which is very like them) but it's a definite weak area of the product.

    Pros

    it is easy to use - easy layout and columns featured are imporant. Baskets and searches are easy to learn and quick help from CS team is any questions. Good online helping too, so new users can learn by reading information provided. Helpdesk are quick to keep in touch for any issues reported and feedback regularly on any issues reported.

    Cons

    When asking the database to sort in certain ways, it reverts back to "standard" layout and you have to sort records again in the feature you want ( i.e. Registered date / CVs arrived Date - etc )

    Pros

    Easy to use. Very user friendly. The system is very logical in the way it links candidates to clients and vacancies

    Cons

    Nothing, it works well. There is very little they could do to improve this. I think they should just leave it as it is as it is good effective software.

    Quality

    Value for Money

    A Recruitment Company who is able to keep and log all our information on a database which can be accessed anywhere is the key to this software

    Pros

    The database is easy to use, having all the Recruitment candidate/Clients history in one place is ideal, several consultants can use it at one time. Easy to Setup or full training was given. Being able to log recruitment process with candidates, input their pros/cons. Using/creating templates for easy using e-mails for clients and candidates. Ideal for sales calls logs and alerts. Keeping paperwork to a minimum in Recruitment. Online support when you have a problem. I have used a lot of Recruitment databases and this is the complete package and a realistic cost and you could buy a software package but Chameleoni you get online help and the software is always being upgraded.

    Cons

    To be honest I have been using the software package for 7 years and when I was starting my Company I knew what I was looking for with a software package for Recruitment and the only thing I could say is if it was free that would be good!

    Cons

    Email integration is archaic!
    It is pretty unusable and not aesthetically pleasing to be honest!
    Its a useful feature- that i pay for - but never use due to its slow and clunky feeling when using...
    Its also too small and awkard to practically use properly daily...
    feels like email from day one...

    I used Chameleon-i for a number of years on a one & then two user basis. The system is straight forward and nearly good but found after 5 years of using it to build a database of candidates - it was useless! I couldn't search within CVS. After flagging this to help desk and raising this with the company - they couldn't fix it and the attitude of the company was dire! I was left for 6 weeks without a fix and was forced to find an alternative supplier - no interest from Chameleon-i and I was forced to leave. A loyal customer lost and any credibility with it because of their attitude! I raised it with the management and request some kind of refund for some of the money I had paid or even some gesture of goodwill - not a sausage! At great cost, I had to migrate what I could across to Bullhorn - wish I'd done it sooner. Terrible customer service. The system isn't terrible but fundamentally couldn't do what I and most people would expect it to do - the basic search! I wouldn't recommend the company to anyone on that basis!

    Pros

    Straightforward basic setup

    Cons

    Everything costs "extra" per month
    Support was terrible
    Management team not interested in problems
    Fundamentally couldn't do the recruitment basics

    I used this system for a few months and found it to be exceptional value for money. The system is well built and easy to use for anyone who has used recruitment databases previously and takes no time to get up and running. All the features you would expect are there, and support are great too.

    Pros

    Ease of use.
    Cost - very good value for money.

    Cons

    Cloud based - if you have poor connectivity then its a big problem.
