Hear why your peers love JobAdder
My favourite thing about JobAdder is the flexibility that it provides. We can completely customise the software to match exactly what we need and what works for our business.
We know that JobAdder will be the best recruitment tool for us – it doesn’t matter what country. It’s part of having the right people in place from the beginning to get to the goal in the end. So I feel like it’s a long-term relationship with JobAdder. JobAdder is a step above some of the recruitment platforms I’ve used. It makes the process more efficient in really sifting through what’s coming in.
We are very much moving into a data-driven society. I think JobAdder does a great job at capturing that data. I think that Analytics is an awesome tool to add another layer of analysis on top of that data. This is really beneficial for me as a business owner, to understand some of the opportunities and some of the bottlenecks we’re facing as a business and for individuals in the business, so that we can direct our efforts to the right things
The mobile app is one thing our recruiters love because a lot of them can be working remotely. So they might go to a meeting and a candidate interview, then go back to another meeting and use the speech-to-text functionality.
It’s the constant redevelopment and new initiatives that are coming out that means we haven’t even broached looking anywhere else. It’s fast, quick and enables [the team] to deliver a level of experience back to the marketplace.
The platform is so user intuitive, the most user-intuitive ATS that I’ve seen. Getting people up to speed on JobAdder is so straightforward. We’ve got people here who are up and running within 3-4 days. For me, the three things about JobAdder that not only keep us loyal but have us advocating JobAdder to our industry colleagues are: the simplicity of the system, the innovative mindset and the transparency with which you run your business.
JobAdder came out on top in all the key areas, from the cost of integration and setup to training for staff and then functionality and utility. I think the beauty of JobAdder is it runs in an agile, modern software environment that gives you regular updates to features that matter to users. It doesn’t matter how big or small you are, it scales with you and your business, which is perfect.
Since the teams have been using the new CRM the feedback has been that it’s made managing the recruitment process more efficient, providing more time for them to spend on the part of the job they’re passionate about, with their candidates and clients.
We wouldn’t have been able to do what we did without it. Partnering with the right technology organisation that can be agile and help you is so important.
