Excellent and Easy to Use Applicant Tracking System

Fantastic - HireHive is a great software at an affordable price that helps me streamline recruitment. The team are a pleasure to work with.

Pros

HireHive is a great Applicant Tracking System. I’ve changed roles twice since I started using the software (when it was called Zartis) and have introduced it to both companies. I've worked in the Software Industry and is Financial Services and have found this software equally effective in both. In a standalone HR role, it is important for me to have the most efficient process for both hiring managers and candidates – HireHive helps me achieve this.

The software is easy to use and the HireHive team provide excellent service when needed. They care about candidates and their clients – they are quick to respond and the way the product has developed over the years takes into consideration changing requirements. There are regular updates and enhancements to the software which take into account feedback they have received from clients.

Here are a few features I really like:

-Immediate job posting (linked to job boards and pushed to other social media avenues)
-Customised emails to candidates – this makes responding to every candidate easy (and quick).
-Delayed email replies.
-Notes section – easy way to track information and communicate with the hiring team.
-Reporting and Analysis
-Interview Scheduling

Cons

I honestly can't think of what I like least - it's come along way since I first starting using the software and has developed over the years to one I find is really helpful. Features that were once on the wish list are now live in the product.

Best ATS I've seen

The biggest benefit to me as the sole recruiter in my company is the time the platform saves me in terms of communicating with candidates and internally with Hiring Managers. My policy is to respond to every single candidate that applies to us here at CurrencyFair, and Hirehive allows me to do send a personalized email, with the relevant tailored message to each candidate, with only a few clicks.

Pros

Hirehive is by far the best recruitment system I've experienced in terms of ease of use. It's clear the team at Hirehive care about the UX from the perspective of both the Candidate and Recruiter, and they are committed to ensuring users have the least amount of clicks to perform tasks, which pleases me! And best of all is that it is both configurable and customizable at Admin level; something you don't always get with this kind of software, giving me full control over how my hiring managers use the system, and how I categorize my candidate pipeline. At a basic functionality level, it does exactly what a good ATS should do, but there are little extras that make my life much easier so I can get on with the other element of my HR role. Some of my favorite product features include:
I can move candidates between jobs if I think an applicant is more suited to a different role.
At a glance, the pipeline is very clear to see per role, so I can clearly see what stage I'm at for each role.
Quick and easy reporting which means I don't have to do any analysis at my end to gather insights.
I can respond to candidates via email and HH will track this.
Quick and easy to make notes on candidates and attach files. This might sound like a standard feature but I've used other systems that haven't supported this.
I can shortlist with just one or two clicks.
Setting up interviews is easy and intuitive from an admin perspective and also for the hiring manager.

Cons

There may be some work required to make the mobile version a little easier to navigate - perhaps some bugs here

Recruitment Management Software

We have been using HireHive (previously Zartis) for over 3 years, it's a key software management tool for us. There are a number of features that we like, its cloud based so it doesn't matter where we are located, we can log in and manage our activity. It is also very time efficient, a lot of the functionality is automated we particularly like the fact that it links to social medial sites and job boards with just one click, so that saves us huge time. Over the past year, we have seen really great improvements to the site, things like their reporting functionality is much better and you can now run a variety of reports of the data that is there, and even display it in graphic format, so nice images for our reports to clients. So far candidates seem to find it easy to operate too which is really important for us.

Pros

We can list a number of pros to using Hirehive, certainly one of the things is that it is very cost effective, so it makes good sense to use it for even a few jobs. We have used it to hire over 100 peole in the past year and it certainly can cope with high volume activity - obviously we've managed thousands of CV through it.
Another good thing about is the dashboard summay, you can see where you are on each job you have open at a glance and then can click into a role for more data if you need it.
The automated list to job boards and to social media sites is a bit thing too - saves huge time for us so that definitely a positive.

Cons

a lot of the cons have been ironed out over the past year, as they have made really good improvements to a number of the areas.

HireHive - The ATS For Your Business

It's been great. The team at HireHive has been so accommodating and supportive. They have taught us so much about how to attract and hire great candidates. I can strongly recommend HireHive to any business, regardless of the size or sector to try HireHive's free trial today. It will transform how you hire!

Pros

During the 14 day free trial I was amazed at the number of applicants we had apply. We had our first hire before we'd even decided to use HireHive as our full time ATS. Now that we use it everyday, it's become essential to our business. I find it intuitive to use and the job integration on our website is seamless. It's functionality has grown with our business. Every time we've thought of a feature that would be helpful we were pleased to see it was already available or that it was under construction, soon to be ready with the next update. Customer service is excellent.

Cons

I wish there was a quick search feature / look up that allowed us to see 'new' applicants - regardless of the job they've applied for. I'd like to be able to see who newly applied to various jobs overnight.
I'd also like a check box - a flexible 'to do list' - attached to each candidate to help track applicants progress through the screening, interviewing and hiring process. Something with reminders that nudges you to follow up or even nudges the candidate to follow up.

HireHive Review _ Westbourne IT

After requesting a trial of HireHive 6 months ago. I decided after a brief run through of the system, that this was exactly what I was looking for as Recruitment Manager of Westbourne IT. We cancelled our subscription to our previous candidate management system and signed up. HireHive makes managing the interview process easy and transparent for all our admin users and hiring managers. It allows me to send emails directly to candidates at the click of a button based on whether we are progressing or regretting them. All email templates can be customised to our liking. HireHive is the best recruitment tool that I have used and would highly recommend it.

Pros

Love the flexibility around upgrading my current plan, we have the option to change this on a monthly basis.
Very easy to add new candidates to the system that have come through a different job board.
Very intuitive and easy to use.
The support team are always online to answer any questions I have had in the past.

Cons

Would be great if the system would flag duplicate email addresses. Sometimes candidates can apply to the same job a number of times if I renew a post.

Replied July 2016

Hi Aylmer, Thanks for your review of HireHive. We are delighted to that you are enjoying using our software. Regarding flagging duplicate email addresses - you can now see if a candidate has applied for a position numerous times in the candidate profile. There will be a list of all past applications indicating that the candidate has applied previously. We hope this helps.

The No Nonsense ATS

We were looking for a solid ATS to post our vacancies on, through which we could share them on linkedin and other social media platforms. Hirehive is a great option because it automatically posts all your jobs on job boards and ensures all applications are stored safely in the system. It is easy to use, cheap and intuitively built. I highly recommend it to any company who needs to structure their recruitment processes and comply with GDPR.

Pros

-The tool's simple structure and layout make it very easy to use and very intuitive.
-It comes at a very affordable price making it ideal for companies of any size.
-The reporting metrics are basic however they do cover the essential information.
-Their staff is extremely helpful and very friendly.
-They are very happy to incorporate feedback!

Cons

It doesn't have any of the fancier attributes of modern ATS' (automated push notifications to get back to candidates, advanced and predictive analytics, etc) but if one plans their work properly this is no real obstacle.

Great recruitment software for a fast growing company

The system was super fast to set up and learn. We didn't want to invest a lot of time in a new system so this was important for us. We've been using it for about 3 years and wouldn't be able to manage our recruitment without it.

Pros

Easy to use. Low cost. Does what it says on the tin.

Cons

Replying to notes and emails from candidates could be made easier.

Great ATS that gets you instant job applicats

Hirehive is the great ATS that gives you all the functionality that you need for your internal HR system (referrals) as well external system where you can post instantly on dozen relevant job boards in our case IT, and get immediately dozen applicants within a couple hours. So far there was no technical problems and no bugs so it looks reliable

Pros

We like the speed and realibilty as well as the UI. Publishing of the new roles takes 30 seconds to become live so need to waiting for a long time. Also applicants can be tag very easily in system and you can see their CV immeditaly in browser rather than downloading and then openning again. So in over all HireHive is fast, clean ,reliable and functional and I don't know what else you need to have in order to do your work. Also it's affordable.

Cons

Probably you should add more features in system ( like calling from browser,video,forecasting)

Response from HireHive

Replied July 2016

Thanks very much for your review Marko. We are continually looking at adding more features to the system and are always interested in hearing customer feedback to guide these.

HireHive makes managing the entire recruitment process seamless

Pros

You can easily add your candidates and see what stage they are at in the process immediately. The design is great and everything you need to manage the candidates is in one place. Customer support are also amazing and always there to help. The tips on the website are also very helpful.

Another thing I love is that HireHive automatically posts your job ad onto several sites which means you don't have to, adding the job to one site saves so much time.
