Return on Investment

Great product and value!

Pros

Seekout is an exceptional tool. It is a real time saver and versatile functionality. I reviewed several tools to simplify and streamline recruitment searches and messaging. For the money it is the best tool for the money. The messaging/campaign system is better than my ATS!

Cons

They are always working to improve functionality and contact finding has improved greatly in the last year.

Reasons for choosing SeekOut

More functionality for the value.

SeekOut Basic Review

SeekOut has provided our company with a great source of candidates and direct contact information and is a good tool for creating and maintaining talent pools. I've used it to support a client in their contract staffing needs (IT Consulting Co.) very well.

Pros

There are several features that the basic version has that we find very useful: - Filters for searches - Ability to exclude/include companies, titles, skills in searching - search down to the city area level - Being able to quickly create projects for searches - Finding contact information (personal emails, some ph #'s and even work emails) - The AI Recommendation of candidates once a project has been established. Great source of additional candidates possbilities.

Cons

It doesn't integrate with ATS's ... at least not at the basic user level. It does allow for CMS file creation but has a limited # of pre-mapped tables you can use with other tools (11 in total). This could definitely be improved. Also, direct integration would be an improvement where you could send candidates into your ATS directly without downloading. There seems to be a growing number of outdated profiles in the system. SeekOuts database needs to be updated more often.

Reasons for choosing SeekOut

More cost-effective and better sourcing option!

Reasons for switching to SeekOut

SeekOut searches and AI are much easier to utilize over LOXO's very cumbersome setup.

SeekOut Review

I really like this tool it helps me get in front of many [potential candidates

Pros

Seekout is a great tool for a recruiter that needs to search social media. it narrows the candidate pool down helping you pinpoint candidates that have the skills you may need. What really nice feature is the messaging feature. allowing you to send messages/emails to candidates

Cons

A lot to learn can be frustrating at times as you are trying to do other searches.

Reasons for choosing SeekOut

Pricing was very fair and was recommended by other recruiters I network with

SeekOut is awesome for technical searches

Phenomenal software, very easy to use, great algorithms for tough searches

Pros

Search algorithm accurately identifies more candidates than other software we've used

Cons

Resume search from internet; this only really enables us to import LinkedIn profiles vs. resumes from personal websites, etc. Also, getting from the project to the campaign is clunky - I wish you could add to the campaigns like you can to the projects.

Reasons for choosing SeekOut

For the search functionality and metrics capabilities

Reasons for switching to SeekOut

SeekOut is more useful for heavily technical searches, which is what we do more of. It also has improved on the diversity features, which is why we originally opted for entelo.

Easy as 1...2...3

Overall, SeekOut has allowed me to be more strategic in my sourcing efforts and has improved my relationships with hiring managers.

Pros

SeekOut's sourcing solution is by far the best in the industry. On top of providing an exceptional product, they not only listen to my suggestions but actually implement them into the product!

Cons

I wish there was a male diversity filter similar to women.

Reasons for choosing SeekOut

SeekOut provides more accurate candidate contact information than competitors.

Reasons for switching to SeekOut

LinkedIn Recruiter is too expensive for what it gives. InMails don't work.
