Even the most basic features were great

What is our primary use case?

I am a technical recruiter. I used this to track candidates when working for an IT staffing company.

How has it helped my organization?

We had no tracking system prior, so this was a huge improvement.

What is most valuable?

Since we had no system before (we just kept everything in Outlook), even the most basic features were great.

What needs improvement?

I don't remember a lot of CRM-type functionality for our salespeople.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

The mobile interface enables us to use it from anywhere; expedites on-boarding

What is most valuable?

Mobile interface Ease of use

How has it helped my organization?

I think we have faster on-boarding time. It is mobile and you can use it anywhere. It's also more cost effective because it doesn't take as many people to do it. Employees can log in from where they're at.

What needs improvement?

The recruiting section needs work.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Sometimes there is a little bit of a lag, and maybe that was more because of our network. I haven't really had an issue with it from any device I was using. It's been pretty consistent.

How is customer service and technical support?

I haven't had to open any tickets.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I didn't because this is what my company had.

LMS System Administrator and EMR Instructor at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Vendor
Our employees are now able to electronically sign completion and reporting of their training, although it lacks archiving capabilities.

What other advice do I have?

I’d say overall it’s positive, if they shored up the support and service I think I’d be ranting and raving about this group. The only other thing, I’d say they are secretive about product enhancements, and I know they have this this product. They don’t want to talk about anything until they are sure. It’s difficult when they release new items as you have to learn them after they become live. If they just had more time to train us on the new features I’d be more inclined to use them when they came out. What ends up happening is a new feature comes out and two to three weeks later they may hold…

What other advice do I have?

Go beyond the demo. Make them show you how all of your scenarios will work in the system to make sure it really does what the sales team say it does.
