Mindscope Staffing and Recruitment Software


Mindscope is an applicant tracking system (ATS) that tailors to both temporary staffing and permanent recruitment agencies. It also comes with an industry-specific CRM tool. The staffing and recruitment system is multilingual and supports multiple currencies. It integrates with email and has an Outlook Plugin.

Mindscope offers features optimized for mobile, including integrated text messaging, Viber and Whatsapp messaging, and a mobile app.

Mindscope’s Shaazam tool enables recruiters to grab a profile from a website and parse all highlighted details into their database.

It also integrates with social media and all major job boards, allowing recruiters to post jobs directly through the system. When candidates apply, their details are automatically captured in the recruiters’ database. Mindscope’s advanced reporting functionality lets agencies strategize based on data-driven insights, such as which job boards generate the highest number of applicants.

Mindscope also offers a global sourcing tool, which lets recruiters make detailed searches within hundreds of job boards at once. The system allows 100 resumes at a time to be automatically parsed into the database. Recruiters can then use the pipeline management tool to move candidates through user-definable stages towards placement.

Good ATS software

We use this currently in a straightforward way. Review is based on this. Will also be implementing this with a large project with a more complicated setup.

Pros

Ease of use. Customizable to your needs. Company ready to accommodate. Can also integrate with CRM.

Cons

The graphical interface needs to be updated, which I believe is in the works. Need IE for direct mass CV imports.

Search Features Made so Easy

Great support from your team! Very intuitive which makes it easy to learn.

Pros

I love the searching capabilities within Cura, and the easy web integration for posting open orders.

Cons

There isn't much that I don't like about this software; perhaps some features are missing from the mobile version.

Mindscope

It's been a great experience working with Mindscope. I don't plan on switching systems anytime soon.

Pros

There is a lot of functionality and they are always adding more. They are open to hearing our suggestions about improvement.

Cons

There might be to many options. I feel like we only use a small percentage of the program can offer.

Best software experience in 25 years of recruiting

Pros

Much to our shock and great delight, all of the things we’d been promised prior to go live actually happened! The onboarding process was smooth and handled brilliantly. One of their staff flew over from Canada and spent a week with us in our UK HQ. Following the go live, we’ve had no issues worthy of mention. Any queries or issues have been user / new system orientated and we have received whatever support has been required.
Our consultants love the product and were delighted with the choice we made. To top it all, it’s very reasonably priced! I feel we have paid for a VW and ended up with a Bentley! Couldn’t be happier.

Cons

CURA has worked well for our business with its culture of investment and product development at the heart of their product offerings.

This is the best move we've ever made.

Great system. Meets our needs beautifully.

Pros

We can now focus on filling jobs rather than figuring out "workarounds" where our previous system was lacking. The reporting functions are fantastic.

Cons

There's really nothing that we dislike about the system. It was a drastic change from what we had used previously, so there was a learning curve, but everyone caught on very quickly and would never consider going back.

Great product!

I'd highly recommend anyone that's interested to contact the team for a demo! It's a no-cost effort and it should be enough to get you convinced! :)

Pros

The product is really easy to use, the support staff is really helpful and fast in finding solutions. This is a great product and has made our work a lot easier!

Cons

The only thing I would be able to say for the "cons" would eventually be the user-interface that isn't the "prettiest" but the goal of this software is to be an effective time saving solution and not a "beautiful" product.

Cura and Growth

Pros

I've used Mindscope/Cura for almost 7 years and it's grown in it's abilities and features exponentially. I like the ability to connect directly with Outlook and how it can take my conversations via email with a candidate and automatically sync it into the candidate's profile. I also like being able to enter in individual resumes directly from my Outlook, but I still have the ability to parse large amounts through Batch Paris. I have really enjoyed being able to merge multiple profiles for the same person rather than having to remember which specific one I want to work from. Finally, the texting feature has been incredible beneficial.

Cons

We are still working through some kinks currently, such as the .NET feature keeps un-installing and (on certain computers) take a long time to bring up individual candidates or clients. The search feature in the candidate module can be temperamental and will sometimes not recognize specific words OR will get angry if a bullion search string is too long. Also, there's a weird issue with responding to text messages to a candidate in Cura if the initial sent message from the candidate is over the allotted 160 characters. You have to first delete the candidate's message out of the box and then hit reply.

Great ATS Software

Pros

Able to easily customize to your individual needs. The staff are very easy to work with. Technical Support is knowledgeable and responsive.

Cons

Honestly, my only con with the software is that we don't utilize it to it's fullest. They are continuously updating and improving their software, which is great. I believe that sometimes the training on the updates could be more detailed.

Exhaustive research – chose MindSCOPE

ALL my technical issues get resolved quickly by the best team (usually it is because I forgot how to do something)! Like anything else with technology, I don’t want to know it is there, I want it to work and in almost two years, I can’t remember the database being down and if it was it was not impactful. Great job Team !

Pros

Recruiting software company products are similar. I was tasked for my company with making the recommendation for the “go to” product. The most important steps were to:
• Define end user needs: the desired bells and whistles
• Find a company responsive to the small team/ highly experienced professional

MindSCOPE CURA offers the robust functionality, search philosophy and data management we desired. There are a few “wishes” we would like to see added and look forward to the major upgrade.

A quick look at a Recruiting Software website and who they want to make happy becomes apparent. MindSCOPE’ s customer support is outstanding, and has been accessible and has implemented suggestions. Our last software company was only interested if we had 50+ seats

Cons

The current version of MindSCOPE CURA functions as promised and delivered. Two areas of improvement (we were told change is coming) is when working through search results, it can take 2-seconds for the next record to pop up. To view the next candidate’s resume is immediate. Some functions require too many clicks. Both issues are truly minor.

Constantly evolving with new technologies, easy to use.Great service.

Great value.

Pros

Technical support desk respond in a timely manner. Cura interfaces well with phone system. Not to big to listen to user suggestions, and had incorporated good ideas in future releases. Customization possible. Easy searches, candidate matches.

Cons

As with any software, our biggest issue was initial buy-in from our staff at time of implementation. Once software was learned, everything went smoothly..

Well Detailed Product

Customer support is phenomenal. support team has been so easy to work with and is available whenever we need anything.

Pros

I'm learning to love it. It has been a growing and learning curve for our corporation. I am not on it often in my position, but when I am it's an excellent tool. The staff members who use it state they really like the Mindscope/CURA program. We are looking forward to growing with it from both an HR perspective and Marketing as well.

Cons

I can't say there are cons. I'm not on it enough to say I've had any. And I've not heard complaints from other staff members.

A Great product with great service

I have recommended this product to friends in the industry both in the agency business and in consulting (like our company).

Pros

Mindscope gives me all the functionality our company needs for our Talent Acqusition process. They worked closely with us to customize their product to meet our business process and after sale service is exceptional.

Cons

Is a little bit behind on some of the newer technology initiatives that are occurring in the ATS marketplace but they seem to work hard to bring it up the date.

I used CURA several years ago with a former employer and had to have it at my new place of employment

CURA makes my job easier and helps me stay better organized with my candidates.

Pros

I love the parse from email tool. It is an amazing addition and so easy to use. Makes updating candidate file very easy and efficient.

Cons

Sometimes i have issues with resumes displaying properly but that is usually due to software updates or the format of the resume.

A software that does what it says it does

It does what is says it does, so we are happy.

Pros

Great and responsive customer service
Consistently rolling out improvements
Ergonomic is familiar as it is presented in a traditional desktop layout
Integrated in social media platforms
Integrates into your corporate web easily

Cons

Nothing much to speak of, some automated reference checks would be cool but that would be a new feature. :-)

Much better options out there

Pros

It's easy to move along a candidate in the process and see what stage they are in. Easy to find all candidate notes on their record

Cons

We were promised that it could/would integrate with all these other systems we use and it has not. The search capability is some of the worse I've seen. It does not come up with relevant candidates at all when I am searching by keywords...and don't even try to search by location!! When they mass uploaded our resumes, it must have filled locations in all wrong.

Great software with the features you really want.

Pros

The parsing of resumes and information on line. The saving of resume views as it checks if someone is already in the system. The email integration is the best we have seen.

Cons

Very little cons. Maybe the price is more than others but the software is better. We wish the conversion was not so much as we have a large database on old software so there is a large cost that is unfortunate.

UI needs an update

Would be worth considering, and I'm under the impression that they are working on their UI development.

Pros

It seems like the database is super segmented and modulated meaning you can have alot of flexibility using the system and customization.

Cons

The UI is like using a windows 2000 PC. Definitely not easy to understand or use since its robustness takes away from its simplicity and intuitiveness.
