Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It is extremely user friendly. It is very flexible in managing recruitment, especially when you have thousands of applicants as we did. We easily had over 20,000 applicants within a year for some of our positions, so it made it very easy to manage a large application pool. It was very easy to customize by recruiter preference. When you open up someone's profile to see their experience, education, or other things, you can customize that for yourself. It was flexible in that, and each recruiter could set up their preferences. It didn't have to be set up so that everyone had to have the same landing platform, which was very helpful. As someone who trained other HR people on how to use the system, it was very easy to pick up and learn.""The most valuable features are that we can upload documents and download them on demand."

"It is very user-friendly. Most of the UI is very intuitive so you don't need to follow a course to follow it up.""This product can greatly improve handling of human resources and efficiency.""I think that it's stable. I don't believe that there are any issues.""The most valuable feature is the support for mobile devices.""The technical support is very good.""It has good navigation, and it is user friendly and secure. Every three months, there is an upgrade, and it has new features.""The solution is very good at building out a roadmap based on client needs and feedback.""This solution has localized the payroll which is a good thing."

Cons
"The reporting tool is helpful, but it is not the easiest to train on or is not as understandable for other HR pros. Their Workbench site, which is the administrator site that you use to update your website, is not user-friendly. When updates are required, it is not that easy to manage because Workbench is not user friendly. It required more work from the admins. They have Workbench training, which actually was very unhelpful. It took eight hours to complete, and it was not very helpful. Their customer service when it comes specifically to their Workbench site is not helpful.""I would like to have a better and more user-friendly interface."

"In the next release, I would like to see a new recruitments module. I would like to see the preboarding so that it sends out integrations through personal email. That would be very useful.""The product is comparably complex to install and deploy properly.""From the feedback that I get, the functional side of the payroll could be improved.""It would be very nice if we were able to roll back transactions from data that was loaded with the data loader.""There should be more digital assistance included, like chatbots.""It is a cloud solution, so we cannot do much customization. However, if you have a past license, you can do the customization, but unfortunately, we don't have a past license. If we had that, we would have been 100% happy.""The product needs to keep improving the integration tools and the tools to load the data - that whole mechanism - in order to allow for flexibility in the configuration.""Cloud learning can be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Kenexa was fairly priced. However, in 2019, before I left my previous organization, they significantly increased their pricing. It can be affordable, but their pricing is going up. It is not just licensing; it is how many applicants you have in your system on the database side."

"On an annual basis, we pay about $25,000 for our company. This includes the VAT, support, upgrades and everything else.""Oracle HCM offers many features at a low price.""On average, it's not a cheap solution.""It has a licensing cost. It has a cloud-based subscription, which is quite cheap.""The solution is expensive.""Licensing fees are on a yearly basis.""There is a license required for the use of this solution and we are on an annual license."
