If it’s not working for you then you’re able to get out of it, but I’m really confident that once people see it and start using it, they will never want to leave. JobAdder is our single source of truth.

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.

The training was very good because we were all using the system and we were up to speed very quickly… even our new users, when they come onboard and we give them a bit of an overview and then they do the tutorials, it’s like, okay, that makes sense.

So the best thing for us about JobAdder is the fact that it provides a central location where we can store information, we can share information, we can communicate via it, so whoever is working on a specific role or project at a certain time can always access all of the information they need, so there’s never a black spot in our communication or our productivity based on which team member is working at a specific time.

The key for me is the partnering element between JobAdder Support and their clients; they are always there to solve a problem or listen to improvement suggestions. You would definitely not get this reactive response from the other providers.

Aussie Locums made the switch to JobAdder over two years ago and we have not looked back. JobAdder is easy to use, great for reporting and the apps and add ons are exceptional too. Their support team is fast to respond and very friendly.

JobAdder’s versatility [works well with] our remote working model, particularly with people with disability or impairment, it just makes life really, really easy not just within the team but also with our customers.

We are saving a lot of time each day using workflows and staying on the home screen. Personally, I have found that I’m saving an amazing amount of time on a daily basis. The team is getting the hang of it and have been very positive about their experiences.
