mindSCOPE CURA software


CURA is an applicant tracking and recruiting software that provides on-the-go access, and multi-lingual support. The software focuses on client and candidate interaction. The SMS functionality in the software allows recruiters to send a text to any candidate. The text is recorded into the candidate's specific profile, making it easily accessible for any future reference. CURA also makes use of social media, providing integration with Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. The integration makes it easy for recruiters to create job-specific posts on company social media pages. Recruiters can target candidates that are interested in specific companies and businesses.

CURA has individual portals available to both candidates and clients. Candidates can submit personal information such as resumes, CVs, and pictures directly into the system database. The clients can then view this information as soon as they are granted access, and can begin to analyze each potential candidate within the portal itself. The applicant tracking and recruiting system fits for any size recruiting or staffing agency.

Supported Operating System(s):
Mac OS , Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 8 , Windows 10

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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..

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A few issues have been slow to resolve and there have been a few glitches changing from US to UK terminology. The work flow in certain areas could be a bit cleaner and easier to follow
