    Pros

    TargetRecruit's dashboard is modern in appearance and the software is very user friendly. The design is simple and easy to pick up.

    Cons

    Generating and saving candidate profiles and resumes is a slow process process. If you use reports a lot, you will be disappointed in the lack of them.

    Pros

    based in salesforce strong architecture with lots of functionality and endless possibilities of customizing

    Cons

    bad support service, handled in a not very professional way, no issue tracking at all, no periodical status review, not clear categorization of issues, it seems you send it and the the assigned person tries to do his or her best to solve it or to give you any answer which could lead you to feel it is a not supported feature or a third party issue they cannot solve, with no SLA at all, so you never know how long it could take to solve any issue.

    Analytics

    Pros

    TargetRecruit is a great platform in our recruiting and business development processes. We can extract different reports for analytics.

    Cons

    We experience system latency whenever there are updates to candidate profiles. It takes a while before changes reflect.

    The tool provides us with more details and accurate tracking system. We can monitor our candidate's status real time across our firm which resulted in a very efficient manner.

    Pros

    The tool allows us to update realtime and provide us reports and analysis with simple steps to follow. The interface is highly customizable depending our needs. I made our work very productive and efficient.

    Cons

    Although the interface is customizable, if you have a lot of information, it's sometimes hard to locate some fields, but if you get used to it, it's a very wonderful and useful. Sometimes, syncing and lag issues can occur but does not affect the over-all rating.

    Overall, I found the customer service with Target Recruit to be poor. The most recent experience, I spoke to a rep regarding our password set up. The administrator on the account was no longer with the company and we needed to reset her password. After about two phone conversations and 20 minutes of going back and forth, we were finally on the same page. I was told a request has to be put through by salesforce and that was the last I heard about this. It has been a week. I understand these things can be a process, however, it would have been nice to receive some sort of follow up or status.

We consistently look forward to learning additional ways to automate functions within the system to best serve our customers. Their responsiveness and willingness to help work through questions in a highly timely manner has been great. With their assistance, our team continues to learn how TargetRecruit can best help with our staffing and recruiting business processes!

    Health care professionals credentialing module lacks functionality and produces incorrect results. Automated reminder emails send to some employees and not to others. Tech Spt can't seem to fix bugs.

    Pros

    Captures information on candidates that can improve talent recruiting and placement.

    Cons

    Fields can't be cross-referenced in some reports. Salesforce doesn't give the impression that it is concerned with small clients.

    I have been liaising with the Target Recruit team for over 3+ years. They have a committed team. We have approached them for customization, reports, and other processes and they have always come through. Kumudh is our account manager and she is very efficient. Raghu is another point of contact in the support team. His turn around time in addressing and resolving our issues has been great. I met with their CEO in LA. Overall a very committed and nice team.

    Having used or demo'd many of the largest ATS out there as well as up and coming products, TargetRecruit allows a business the opportunity to have a highly efficient out of the box, yet easily customizable ATS that is 100% in tune with the latest and greatest Salesforce features. This allows us to have a strong recruiting ATS while taking advantage of "above the funnel"/pipeline activities of traditional sales organizations without having to use 2 separate CRMs. User-Friendly is an understatement. If there is a field, it can be reported on! If there isn't one, you can make one! I could go on and on. The product speaks for itself. With respect to the TargetRecruit team, everyone takes a "customer is king/queen" mentality. They really aim to please. When selecting Target Recruit for my current firm, due to my experiences with them previously, it was a slam dunk. Antony as my point person was and still is amazing. Kumudh in sales was transparent and accommodating. The rest of the team, including but not limited to Harish, Minu Thomas & Lokesh were all easily accessible and responsive. If you are looking to take your ATS to the next generation, TargetRecruit must be on the short list of finalists. From reporting to mobile to all of the Salesforce features, it's a winner in my book.

    As an executive search firm our key needs were a solution that improved our use of time, aided our search ability and made the tracking and communicating with candidates easier. We looked at numerous solutions both on the AppExchange and standalone but found TargetRecruit to be streets ahead. Primarily I believe because the developers have a recruiting background.The design is very intuitive. Great App. Strong Recommendation.

    Pros

    Time saving / Smart

    Review: We have been using TR for about a year and we like it, its not perfect but then no system is. Its also the sort of system you need to invest time in learning.It does a lot of things out the box that well help in your recruiting for clients, if you have a CRM then you might find the adjustment different. The biggest challenge for us is user adoption as they look for short cuts or find it simpler working outside the system where as they cannot see the bigger picture.Pluses its on Salesforce a tool we have been suing for 3 years.Reports are brilliant.Support is good (sometimes English is a little difficult) they do try to help Satish is very good.You can customise it (as with all of SF)Could do better.No free phone from the UK.Not able to pay direct to UK bank its via paypal which is additional (small) cost)Videos are ok but could be better.Overall I would recommend but then you have to want to invest the time in to making the system yours and part of the process

    Pros

    Flexibility

    Cons

    Offshore support sometimes can be problematic

    We could not be happier with TR, especially their customer support staff, my rep and his entire team! We went live last summer and were very happy with the migration and implementation and today continue to customize the program to fit our changing needs. My rep knows our system so well, he can easily communicate requested changes to his team of developers, and get changes ready for testing in no time at all. I always look forward to the on-site visits when we can work one on one and get through a list of action items, discussion items and admin training in just a few days. They are a really great company and we are glad to be working with them!

    Pros

    Easily able to customize and create workflows, reports, fields, etc.. on my own.

    Cons

    Reporting features are limited.

    In my 16 years of recruiting, I have used a number of applications. When I opened my own company and needed a recruiting application that could be used for posting jobs, gathering applicants, managing candidate / client contact activity, reporting, etc., I chose TargetRecruit. The application is easy to install, is highly configurable and the customer service team at Avankia is tops! They are quick and accurate in their replies and really seam to understand what I am trying to accomplish. The tool has paid for itself many times over by allowing be to quickly find candidates I have added or have applied. It also helps me manage my marketing campaigns to build my client database. Pricing is also owner friendly. :) I will continue to recommend TargetRecruit to others!

    Pros

    Service and support are incredibly responsive and helpful. Easy to install, use and update. Simple to configure.

    Eumedica consultants are experts in searching and selecting skilled medical employees and executives.There is no other agency in Switzerland which is so cross-linked in Switzerland and in the whole of Europe. Eumedica is specialised on the health sector job markets in Switzerland, Germany and Great Britain. For me it has been the third implementation with TargegRecruit. From the scratch, the Sales Manager, Sathish Kumar, helped us finding the best solution. The evaluation, forming our processes and the possibilities offered by the system is great. The team around, Vidya Charan and Chandrasekhar Pathepur have done everything to bring us in productivity. Thanks guys! Now we are live for a few days and very happy with all the great functionality which comes with the system. We don't even use all of this functions.We are convinced to have the right partner and the right system and we are certain Targetrecruit will come up with new innovations, therefore it’s a great investment in a future!!

    Since we started to use Target Recruit we have had a great experience working with the support team to customize the program to match our needs. The support team of Prathap and Sathish have been very supportive and always available to match our schedule on very short term. We have used other products before, however have found the support of Target Recruit's customer service team to go above and beyond. The app is a bit complex, but offers customization which often can be done by a super user. The reporting tool is excellent. Highly recommend to try and use it!

    Pros

    Cloud based so accessible anywhere, a powerful recruitment tool which is customizable by users directly

    Cons

    the reporting and search tool might appear a bit complex at first but is very powerful once mastered

    The platform is built on Salesforce and so we can use best of salesforce platform and all the additional core functionality around recruiting from TargetRecruit.

    I like the EMail to Candidate and Job Applicant integration. When someone applies through email, it auto routes to the right job and it sends me alerts based on matching criteria. We get 100's of resume and need to quickly rank and file which this feature helps us with.

    Cons

    Have been using from start and seen it progressively get better.
