"Ease of use"

What do you like best?

The thing that I like best about utilizing PeopleFluent is how cross integrated the user interface is. There are multiple ways of accomplishing the same results. I also like that it auto populates the majority of fields when parsing a resume when forming a candidate profile.

What do you dislike?

I don't really like that it is hit or miss with attachments. Whenever I initially upload a resume, I cannot delete it and reload it if a mistake was made initially. Also, when attempting to upload additional attachments, sometimes it tells me that that file cannot be uploaded successfully.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely invest in this software if you are looking for high job postings, and high candidate Flow. It has simple interface, with only a few drawbacks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My company is a 3rd party user to this Applicant Tracking System for one of our clients. By being able to utilize PeopleFluent, we are able to effectively communicate a candidate's interest, strengths, weaknesses, and salary expectations. This ATS streamlines the amount of times that we have to reach out to individual managers for different positions.

What do you dislike?

I really don't really like that it is usually a miss with attachments. When I generally upload a resume, I actually are unable to delete it and refill it if a blunder was performed in the start. Also, when looking to publish additional attachments, the idea shows me that that record cannot be uploaded efficiently.

"Efficiently manage human resources in a practical and simple way"

What do you like best?

This tool is excellent to give structure to the recruitment and selection processes. It has defined and orderly workflows that allow the tracking of talent, it is easy to learn and has a minimalist design, undoubtedly facilitates the management of human resources in companies.

What do you dislike?

The workflows used in this tool are quite simple, its configuration by roles allows each member of the team to follow up on the recruitment and selection processes. The interface is very efficient and compatible with several applications, which makes it a flexible tool and easy to apply. The design is minimalist and very intuitive when learning to use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is important to evaluate the information with which the tool can be used, evaluate its configuration well, it is important to take the time to consider each part of the process and get the most out of the tool, keep it updated in another key point for its use, The key is to do things right from the start and take the time to select the workflow that best suits your needs

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has restrictions regarding the personalization of the templates and the use of the reports,

I think they should be more flexible and allow the personalization of these two points.

"A good tool for the goal setting, tracking and other HR related matters"

What do you like best?

I like in particular the easy goal setup and fast tracking how it is going on and implemented. Another thing is to be highlighted with the internal job openings under the same tool so anybody can easily browser what's going on when it comes to HR related matters.

What do you dislike?

The queries/filters are not typically easy defined. Not very convenient on usage. The format when you look up one particular position seems a little malformed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a one-stop solution for flexible goal settings and fast tracking, as well as integrating other HR matters like internal job markets etc, this is the right one for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helped a lot when it comes to the performance management and fast tracking the performance. Also it's easy to browse the internal job market for all available positions. So very useful HR tools to manage and facilitate the HR matters.

"Good Applicant tracking System"

What do you like best?

As a user of PeopleFluent, I enjoy being able to drag and drop candidates in folders with out having to open them. I also like being able to see the application history to better understand what other roles candidates have applied under.

What do you dislike?

I am not a big fan that one cannot see whom has been emailed in the featured system. It makes it difficult to track If a recruiter has reached out to someone if they have not accurately update the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Complete any and all trainings for the system to ensure maximum benefit and usage. Identify pain points with current ATS and evaluate if the PeopleFluent System will alleviate the issues. The system is pretty sleek and user friendly and if one makes any mistakes easy to reverse.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to work within the system in real time with our updates and do extended searches in the system. When we have tight deadlines, having multiple licenses has been beneficial to our success.

"Peoplefluent is user-friendly up to a certain point. "

What do you like best?

What I like best about PeopleFluent is the ability to manage all my requisition's in one cue. It's very easy to find requisitions and candidate's quickly. I also like that each recruiter has than own view in PeopleFluent and more views can be created easily.

I also enjoy PeopleFluent's ability to integrate with other platforms like Workday. It makes for a seamless hiring process. Automation is a key part of efficiency and peoplefluent really does a lot of the work for us.

What do you dislike?

PeopleFluent has it's flaws. Sometimes resumes can be very difficult to read depending on your settings. In addition, I wish the folders (Inbox, Hiring Manager Review, Screening, etc) were more customizable for us. It would allow us to work our requisitions with more flexibility.

I also wish that sourcing in PeopleFluent was easier. Searching keywords, searching by universities, better filters - PeopleFluent easily becomes a wasteland of candidates after a point, because of the lack of sourcing technology.

Recommendations to others considering the product

- Every recruiter has a personal cue

- It's very easy to search for candidates, hiring managers, old requisitions

- The keyword and resume search functions aren't very helpful - sourcing within the tool isn't as built out.

- The platform has a great consolidated view that allows you to see your open requisitions, candidates, where candidates are in the process and pretty much everything you need all in one screen.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are easily able to manage recruitment projects. The platform enables us to easily communicate with hiring managers, candidates and work through the recruitment process with minimal issues. PeopleFluent enables us to displace much of the bias and discrimination that can easily occur within the recruitment process, but having various triggers and requirements that help to keep the process regulated.

"People Fluent - Fingertip Solutions"

What do you like best?

PeopleFluent is extremely easy to navigate. It also integrates with other systems easily.

You're given a lot of options to use with it and it makes for an easier workflow, when it comes to hiring / talent management as well as performance pay. It makes some of the most difficult tasks simplified and manageable. The Compliance training is also excellent. It saves a lot of time and headache getting information in front of employees right away.

What do you dislike?

There are some aspects that isn't enough customization for what our company used to use it for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are some features that PeopleFluent offers that others in the same industry do not. This makes for a great selling point. Talent Management through other systems seems to be a bit complicated. With PF it makes talent management so much more manageable and the ability to automate things helps, too. As a company it makes a huge difference, so you don't have to go to each individual to check on their progress.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They had very streamlined tools that are usable for many departments.

"Feasible Applicant Tracking System"

What do you like best?

I enjoy the ease of dragging and dropping candidates into work folders. It makes the process flow so much easier being able to move a group of candidates for interviews or disposition.

I also thoroughly enjoy that I can set up parameters to see only my requisitions to focus my work.

What do you dislike?

I am not a fan of that fact that I cannot see what candidates have received a phone call or email from my colleagues. Unless the other individuals add personalized notes or updating statuses in real time, I have no clue where candidates are currently in process.

I also do not like how the profile and candidate info tabs are separated, I believe this could be streamlined to one page.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would request an interactive training that may include a sandbox function so recruiters/coordinators have the ability to play in the system prior to using. If one does not have adequate and thorough training the system can be confusing and appear redundant.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to successfully track applicants through hiring process with the ease of moving candidates in bulk to other requisitions as needed. Working with other systems we had to have individuals apply separately, but this system allows one to drag and drop them to another application, eliminating the extra step for the candidate.

"Very effective and easy to use billable timesheet system"

What do you like best?

Very intuitive and easy to use system for tracking billable hours and handling manager approval up to HR for payment on the contract. Very easy to use and detailed query and reporting options that are beneficial to users at all levels.

What do you dislike?

I suppose it would be nice if there was a way to customize or flag days for the purposes of tracking. Something like entering an asterisks into the hours for a day flags that day as an unpaid day off while a hash tag denotes sick time hours used, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very easy to use and great tool that offers versatility across your organization for billable hour timesheets. Can't think of much this tool doesn't offer and have heard from colleagues that PeopleFluent is pretty good about taking user community suggestions and implementing them effectively.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Time tracking of billable hours to submit to the client for a contract. It has allowed all levels of the client and contractor side to easily be able to see and review the billable hours, approve/manage the hours and obtain reports or answering questions through queries.

"People Management Software"

What do you like best?

It's ease of submitting candidates for job requisitions. I work for a staffing company and a client uses this system to review and track candidates and the on-boarding and time cards of employees. It is easy to work out rates and billing information and submit resumes to review and ensure all compliance categories are completed. Also tracks all communication with the client.

What do you dislike?

Managing time cards is a pain. Every time I have to edit time cards for an employee because they did not submit it correctly the system does not function well. It is slow to correct overall time and billing and is generally frustrating to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're working with a large company it is useful to manage and track candidates and employees through the on-boarding process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ease of management of candidates and employees with a large client.

"Peoplefluent Product Review"

What do you like best?

Most of it can be customized to fit your business needs.

It is mostly all inclusive for application, recruitment activity, onboarding, and HRIS imports. Although, there is some duplicate work for the imports that could be streamlined in a better product.

The training manuals are very well done; I refer to them quite a bit, especially for features that we don't utilize frequently.

What do you dislike?

The site breaks down a lot and doesn't work properly. The root cause of the problems never get fixed, but rather worked around. Once a solution is found for the problem, PF support accepts that as solved and doesn't go on to fix what is broken. For example, there are multiple ways to print, if one of the ways (such as Action Print) prints a blank page, but right click/print works. the Action Print function doesn't get fixed b/c we have a way to print. This isn't user friendly and should not be acceptable.

PF charges for EVERY action, even simple changes. They charge for training, PF won't give access to some functions without the training, even though we can train internally.

There seems to be unnecessary tabs, it would be nice to be able to post a position from the Main Tab instead of a separate tab; wouldn't be so bad if the system loaded faster. There is quite a bit of waiting down time while the screens refresh. Reviewing resumes from the main screen one at a time is inefficient due to the loading time of 15 seconds per refresh; same for switching back and forth from Resume, Candidate Info, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get a different product. PF will nickel and dime charge you for every change you request; they will implement a new release with bugs and imperfections. When you have an issue with the product tech support wants screen shots and more information than can be provided, that it is discouraging to ask for them to fix the issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I do not understand this question. We use PF as our application, recruiting, onboarding, and Business Intelligence reporting. The benefit is having one product for all of these functions.

"Fairly Strong Global basic ATS, fairly intuitive"

What do you like best?

Peoplefluent is one of the better recruiting systems out there for global companies that ask their hiring managers to "self serve"

Very often, Hiring managers only log into a system once or twice a year....so they system needs to be self-intuitive. Peoplefluent's base recruiting tool keeps the workflow from apply to hired, ever-present on the left bar. This helps users understand the steps in recruiting.

Peoplefluent offers drag and drop capabilities, so a user can easily drag a candidate to a disqualified folder, or an interview folder. This is not a common feature with most ATS's.

Although the system may lag in a lot of bells and whistles, it is still a top 10 global ATS and far more simple than most.

What do you dislike?

Reporting is quite old and requires old java and is quite difficult to create custom reports. It requires a separate access.

Many modules such as reporting, admin, agency do not support all browsers.

There are not a lot of bells and whistles, social media is weak. The interface is outdated, but the Resume Mirror (dashboard) at an extra cost looks a lot prettier....although it takes away the advantage of drag and drop and the ever-present workflow steps on the left side.

Some things are too hard...such as questionnaires, job templates are non intuitive to find.

Admin is a bit of a bear, particularly with setting up folders with varying permissions for all user types.

Lacks social media

Doesn't effectively make candidate match suggestions

Approval chain is bad, there is no ability to have a hiearchy of approvers based on an integration. Approval lists are static and must be constantly updated.

What do you like best?

Peoplefluent has a clean and simple interface, allowing you to navigate through the screens relatively easily

What do you dislike?

The workflow and button options are limited, meaning that often to get to the screen you need involved numerous link clicks to jump from one page to another, with no easy way to go back (without having to start all over again)

What do you like best?

I like that it is easy to use and very customizable to our needs.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the look and feel of it compared to newer ATS options. It looks a bit outdated. Often difficult to integrate with other systems compared to newer/larger ATS options. Often when updates/upgrades occur we have issues with using the product on different internet browsers.

"HR Coorindator / Peoplefluent Administrator"

What do you like best?

One of the best part about the system that I believe is its ease of usage for the end user. It doesn't take long for a beginner who has never seen the application to become acclimated in it's functionality. The other is that PeopleFluent listens to it's client and make improvements based on our needs. They are constantly seeking ways to better the system to ensure it meets the client's needs.

What do you dislike?

There is not much, if any, that I dislike about the system. It's easy to use, web based, mobile portable and customizable to suit each individual needs. But if I had to pick one thing, then it would be reporting. The system maintains a wealth of information and you have to be specific setting the correct criteria in what you ask of it in order to receive the information needed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering this application, my recommendation would be to do your due diligence. You will then discover that PeopleFluent is one of the best in the market from the actual application implementation to the team that will service your account. There focus is the client and delivering a product that exceeds expectations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PeopleFluent has streamlined our recruiting process immensely. We have been able to realize huge time savings from the initial approval, to sourcing, to hire. Now our HR Reps can now better utilized their time addressing more corporate driven initiatives.

"Peoplefluent is a good ATS for the recruiter and hiring manager."

What do you like best?

Very user friendly for both the recruiter and the hiring manager. For the recruiter, the process was logical and it took you easily from step to step. If done correctly, you always knew what candidate(s) were in what step of the process.

Posting was a breeze, and getting jobs/offers approved was simple. Everything was logical and accesible.

The company I worked for never had a prior ATS. We trained our admin staff in the field on how to use it and they all had success.

As the System Admin, I loved the support I got whenever I needed help. Support was awesome customer service.

What do you dislike?

Reporting was fairly easy, but if there wasn't a report already in the system, creating one from scratch was very difficult. They offered training, and I took it, but it was diffcult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Our company had no ATS prior to implementing Peoplefluent in 2008. We had it for 5 years and would have kept it unless our corporate global forced us to implement Taleo. Big mistake!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No prior ATS in the company, we needed one to protect us from OFCCP audits. Peoplefluent gave us ample support to defend any audit. They actually provided support calles proactively.

"Talent Acquisition, PeopleFluent Requisition Management"

What do you like best?

From a technical standpoint, system administration is where I spend most of my time and maintaining the users, managers and applicants is probably the easiest part of maintaining the system.

PeopleFluents reporting tool comes with a significant number of canned reports which in most cases for us were not exactly what was needed however the reporting system allows you to use these as a base to build your own reports. In addition the reporting tool allows the building of custom reports.

From a business standpoint I am impressed with PeopleFluents continued commitment to improving the tools that they provide.

From the customer service point of view, their technical support and project teams have been a great asset as we implemented and then customize the system to meet our needs

What do you dislike?

The PeopleFluent recruitment system consists of the administration tool the RM administration tool the RM recruiter tool and business objects reporting tool. Having these split into four different systems in the sense makes it difficult and cumbersome to maintain the back end tables and other system administration. I do have to recognize that PeopleFluent has been working on bringing these systems into a more integrated state.

From a technical standpoint the restrictions put on administrators are sometimes frustrating for example the inability for us to customize our own application form online. Customizing the application and any of the other applicant facing forms requires securing PeopleFluent support resources. It would be great to see an eventual rollout of a tool providing administrators the ability to maintain the applicant facing forms.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When considering and designing your implementation and integration with your HR system carefully consider the setup of your cost centers, hiring managers, position and other backend data. If I had to do it over again, our setup would be different. Your integration setup is a major key to long-term success and ease of maintenance of your backend system. If it means extra time and consideration in your project and implementation it will be worth it and will significantly improve your long-term success.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Prior to integrating PeopleFluent with our HR system, hiring an applicant would normally take an extended amount of time. Often new hires were not put into the HR system until after their first day. Also prior to PeopleFluent reporting and monitoring hiring trends consisted of tracking new hires in spreadsheets and databases. With the PeopleFluent reporting we are able to create and monitor hiring trends with much more efficiency.

As an organization we have recently consolidated many HR resources from individual HR departments into one corporate HR Shared Services model. Having PeopleFluent has been an essential tool to make the talent acquisition team successful in a shared services model.

"Experienced user"

What do you like best?

The user paradigm is great. Easy to use, easy to learn. This is true for hiring managers as well as recruiters. If your concern is this part of the user community, this is the best product out there.

What do you dislike?

The backend is awful. They are in the middle (have been for a few years) of migrating platforms so there are two admin systems for different features of the system. It is not fully user configurable, so you will have to submit (and pay for) change requests. Finally, and most importantly, they are very difficult to work with. They're not nasty, like some vendors, just very passive/aggressive and very "by the SOW". If you don't know the system, use an integrator to help your or you'll get screwed during implementation (delays, cost changes, missing functionality). This is why I'm neutral on them. Great product, not so great company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared to do lots of work yourselves. Ask lots of questions. Allow extra time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The system was implemented to manage recruitment process. We did this over multiple clients so sometimes it was their first ATS, other times it was a replacement. The intent was to bring automation and process to recruitment.

What do you like best?

The Talent Management modules, mainly Performance Management and Succession. There is great flexibility to customize and design the system to work for any organization. The interface is very user friendly. Really love that Peoplefluent offers such a broad array of interconnecting HR process modules and that they can be rolled out individually and to any number and classification of employees.

What do you dislike?

Data imports are challenging, especially if automatic feeds between HRIS systems are not possible.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great interface for users. I love this system. As an administrator you have the ability to design the interface to suit your company's needs and culture and to control security and accessibility.

What i liked most about it is that its an east Requisition set up and you just follow the east step by step process, its pretty much self explanatory. If you miss any information you can't move forward so it helps you not make any mistakes.

What do you dislike?

The only issues i really had was searching for the requisition. Usually i cant locate the Req number right away so it was always easy to search by name but i couldnt, i had to search by Req number unfortunately. The other issue i has was with time card approvals. I would approve time cards and sometimes it wouldnt register. I had determined with my counterpart that there must be a glitch in the system because i would approve them and it wouldnt get submitted. A way to improve this process would be to send an email confirmation of approval so at least the end user would know for sure it was submitted. That would help a lot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its an easy tool to help onboard temps and contractors. Any manager can use it so it helps that its user friendly. IT doesnt always have to be HR.

"It was mid-level as a VMS system compared to other systems I've used, however, very thorough. "

What do you like best?

It gathered/required a substantial amount of information to be entered then most VMS systems when submitting candidates for Client Requirements.

What do you dislike?

Too many tabs for submitting candidates and to gather information on Client requirements compared to other VMS tools that I have used. When copy/pasting from Peoplefluent to internal system, pages such as the Skills tab would not transfer well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I used this product as an User/Admin for a staffing firm, it was our Clients that had Peoplefluent as their VMS. Again, it can be cumbersome to use and there are easier VMS systems that gather the same amount of information on 2 tabs/pages instead of moving through multiple tabs and having to save/complete every tab before being able to go backwards to a previous tab.

"Probably was a great tool....... a long time ago"

What do you like best?

The tool assists us with compliance reports that are required by the government and for our EEO plan tracking.

What do you dislike?

Administrator screens are old and clunky. Reporting is painful. They run through sales people like water and *any* little change is the requisite $5K from their services team. We joke that it's like taking your car to the garage, with their minimum $500 to get out the door! :-)

I happen to support and work with 2 other cloud applications and this is hands down the worst.

If you could get in your time machine and go back to 2000, you'd be a very happy customer

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look at the Gartner charts. They will say it all.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to set up a hiring requisition workflow. The largest benefit is the tool assists with compliance reporting.

"Excellent Applicant Tracking System"

What do you like best?

We love that you can customize your own applicant workflow. We also love that we can make customized reports that are tailored to our business needs

What do you dislike?

We don't like that individual recruiters can not filter their own requisitions on the mobile application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Understand what your business needs are and design your reports around those specific needs. People Fluent can help you create these.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to fill positions in a very large organization. The Applicant Tracking System allows us to stay in constant communication with other recruiters across the country.

"Applicant Tracking Systems, when will they be developed by recruiters using them?"

What do you like best?

The system is easy to use, it is simple enough that if you have not used it previously you can easily pick it up. The software should allow for some personal adaptations, possibly allowing individuals to create personal workflows customized to their needs.

What do you dislike?

The required number of steps it takes to move through the process is laborious. It would be my recommendation that the team employ recruiters in order to identify ease of use before adding additional functionality. The amount of time that it takes to move through the screens could be cut in half. If there was a way to bypass steps, particularly when onboarding an internal transfer for example, that would be helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest that anyone considering any applicant tracking system have their front line recruiters test them before purchasing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like any recruiter, I am trying to view candidate submittals, and close candidates at the end. The challenges are the volume of steps you have to take to get to a hire, the benefits are the steps you are required to take keep you from missing compliance. I have a tendency to want to bypass steps for ease of use, just because the time it takes to physically move from point a to point z. When I say time, I mean that 30 seconds for each step is very time consuming when you are trying to make a hire, or to source within the system. Also, and finally, it would be nice if candidates were alerted when they have not completed their profiles, so that if their resume didn't upload, they would be notified to that.

"PeopleFluent - A Versatile, Well Supported Package"

What do you like best?

- The support we get from both our analysts and the help desk is wonderful. They are timely and responsive, and work to explain issues and drive better configuration practices wherever possible.

- The interface process is versatile and easy to use, and it allows for easy integrations with surrounding systems

- The role based configuration of the system allows for a lot of flexibility in how we use the system

What do you dislike?

- There is no way to batch remove inclusions and exclusions within a performance plan

- The proxy rights for ex-employees don't automatically come of the list. While the ex-employees don't have access to the system it isn't clean

Recommendations to others considering the product

PeopleFluent is very easy to use and can be configured in multiple ways to obtain multiple results. If you bring the analysts ideas they can find ways to make them work. The responsiveness and expertise of their analysts/help desk staff is great. All around, a great company to do business with.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have utilized PeopleFluent to create not only annual reviews and semiannual reviews, we have created rolling review processes tied to inventory schedules and 60-90 day follow ups. This has made it easier to track multiple types of cycles as well as multiple types of data. All this is easily tied in to the salary planning portion of the package allowing us to better drive merit increases.

Ease of use with candidate movement and workflow. Web based.

What do you dislike?

Extremely Costly, lack of LinkedIn integration - meaning to just have a LinkedIn account and apply without having to need to add another resume.

I highly recommend.

"Peoplefluent Recruiting"

What do you like best?

Our company has a very diverse group of recruiters ranging from HR to managers to regular employees. None of the recruiting products we evaluated could sufficiently handle the various configurations we need in our process. While Peoplefluent doesn't support our recruiting model in the most elegant way, it does provide us with a simplistic configuration to make things work.

What do you dislike?

Peoplefluent's Recruiting product is in dire need of a UI and functionality update in order to continue competing in this area. The administration portal in particularly archaic and clunky. Having to manually page through scores of pages of lookup values to perform updates (no search capability) and having to pay extra for their developers to update basic lists of values (no mass change/upload capability) are just a couple of system inadequacies that feature with any top product in the market today.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I believe PeopleFluent can easily and sufficiently support a simplistic/traditional recruiting model where HR does the recruiting and managers merely provide feedback and approvals. The UI is not very up-to-date and a little difficult to navigate. Overall, it is not the prettiest or most user friendly tool to navigate and maintain but does have configuration flexibility, if you are willing to jump through a few hoops. Be very clear in your contractual agreement about deploying new candidate portals in other countries. We were not judicious enough and have had to pay up to five times what was originally quoted for some of our foreign language portals!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A recruiting product that can be secured by role for a broad base of recruiters holding very diverse tasks. While the security set up is not sophisticated, it does at least allow us to meet our business process needs.

"Most Comprehensive and User Freindly Software Around"

What do you like best?

CAAMS has the flexibility to allow for multiple corporate, company and job group structures but remains very user friendly whether the company has 500 or 20,000 employees. The outsourcing option is also excellent allowing you to keep control of your data but ensure a second eye reviews and cleans for audit readiness.

What do you dislike?

I do wish there was an outsourcing option that still allowed the customer to view the CAAMS database in real time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There is a large time savings when using the CAAMS outsourcing product as well as peace of mind that your reports are audit ready.

"PeopleFluent "

What do you like best?

This tool is very intuitive and very much tuned to the productivity for the recruiter. It is easy to navigate through the various application, interviewing, and hiring steps, and easy to implement templates make for great efficiency.

What do you dislike?

PeopleFluent may be a little less efficient for those with very high requisition volumes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool served to simplify and create efficiency for a very complex talent acquisition team. It is easy to use, easy to implement, and works well for both the hiring manager and the recruiter.

"Intuitive to use "

What do you like best?

I like the natural flow of the applicant data through the recruitment portion. The workflow is easy to comprehend and follows an intuitive progression.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that I cannot at a glance see which folders have candidates outside of final destination folders for or company's compliance data

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Peoplefluent has allowed me to use this as a system of record for all of our applicant flow data. It helps us gather all of the necessary information for end of year reporting.

"PeopleFluent makes hiring easier"

What do you like best?

PeopleFluent is super user friendly and makes talent management easy for any HR professional. There are a lot of capabilities the system has that makes the entire hiring process streamlined and systematic.

What do you dislike?

This is a very functional and practical system for companies to use. However, I don't think many people use all of the functionality of the system and could be much more educated on the capabilities of the system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PeopleFluent helps cut down the time between a requisition being opened and a candidate being hired.

"Helpful in Full Recruiting cycle"

What do you like best?

I like that the process is streamlined from start to finish for us. Its a relatively simple user tool to help in the onboarding process. We have manager self-service as well so that t he managers can get on and institute changes for their employees and in addition contractors. The system itself is pretty self-explanatory.

What do you dislike?

The main thing I dislike about the system is when it's updated, there's a learning curve in it where the systems aren't collaborating with each other and it adds additional work that the collaboration is supposed to resolve in the first place.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main benefits we've realized is the streamlining of the full recruitment cycle.

"PeopleFluent Rocks!"

What do you like best?

PF allows our GM's to create easy requisitions for job openings within their stores. This allows a steady flow of candidates for them to review on an as-needed basis.

What do you dislike?

The main thing I hear from our GM's is that the "system" doesn't purge itself within a specified time, so the inbox folder can get quite large if the GM hasn't had a chance to review (or no need to review).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The steady flow of applicants/candidates for our GM's to potentially hire, whether directed to apply online through the company website, representatives at a job fair, a recruiter or instructed by a GM.

"Peoplefluent Review"

What do you like best?

You can upload pdf files of almost any size.

What do you dislike?

It loads very slowly. Searching for a person is very slow. There are too many little steps and filters you have to select to even begin searching for a name. You cannot easily view the notes. You have to hover over the message box and you cannot copy the message either.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need step by step help this is not the system for you. The company does not want negative information out there about their software. It is impossible to get help specific to your businesses needs with PeopleFluent.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was using PeopleFluent to upload medical documents for hospitals we were sending nurses to for jobs.

"Okay product... not the best VMS on the market."

What do you like best?

I am able to check all requisitions posted for any particular client and can easily submit to them. Compliance documents are all in one place and can be easily accessed.

What do you dislike?

I dislike having to upload every document individually as it takes a lot of time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the problem of scattered candidate documents when submitting to requisitions. Benefits to using PeopleFluent include consolidating all HR paperwork in one place for all parties to view.

"Would like better Reporting abilities with this software."

What do you like best?

I like that PeopleFluent gives you the ability to truly follow applicants as they go through the Recruiting and HR processes. You are able to track where they are based on which folder they have been placed in by any User.

What do you dislike?

Though I feel that applicants can be tracked fairly easily, I believe PeopleFluent could add more folder options for use when tracking multiple reasons of non-use for an applicant (such as, a hold for another hire date folder, did not pass BGC/Drug, Etc.) Folders should be easily searchable for applicants, regardless of their status. This can be difficult at times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a recruiter, we are continually challenged to track the use of each aplicant and create metrics. I do wish the reporting were able to "drill down" more for this purpose.

"Peoplefluent Recruitment and Onboarding"

What do you like best?

From an HR prespective, the applicant tracking system is easy to navigate and the folder process flow can be easily changed as our processes change.

What do you dislike?

The onboarding platform implementation was disasterous. The support provided was subpar and the software should not even be on the market. There is little ability to customize or create workflows for large organizations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A seamless experience for applicants and streamlined recruitment workflow. Our recruitment process has been streamlined but we are not still at optimal state due to PeopleFluent limitations.
