"a challenge but a good challenge"

What do you like best?

The modular konzept. Even i havent not understand everything so far. But you can do almost anything with it. Is already an amazing software. You can see that there is a lot of brain in it.

What do you dislike?

The complexität is a big challenge. I think the Most of the Producers from that Solution are programmer but not user in the recruiting business. We have Employees they need a really good introducing and we would love to have more manuals for the ... how you say? ZOHO for Dummys will by fine

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

we have a huge workflow with more than 70 process steps. There are authorities and institutions involved, there are many documents needed and just over 70 steps to work for each applicant. The Pipline has only 10 points, is unfortunately still dependent on placements. It's all too close, but we're still trying to fix a solution with ZOHO.

"Great Experience of the Trial"

What do you like best?

The site is quite easy to use and looks like it will integrate well with other sites, when fully implemented this will be a fantastic system for my HR team going forward. Also with it being Cloud based it makes it far easier than on machine software to keep up to date.

What do you dislike?

I am not far enough into the trial to have found anything that I dislike. The worst I could say is that some options in the setup are awkward to find, so the initial set up was a little slower than I would have preferred, but once set up it was very easy to use.

Additionally, some of features are not yet fully implemented, so I am unable to fully test before deployment.

It is a very involved process to customize the Zoho recruit system to be exactly how we want it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Know what you want Zoho to do for you before you start, there are so many options you can get lost in deciding what you want to include.

Regardless of your company size, Zoho Recruit brings the entire recruitment process together in one easy to use package and allows for a more streamlined approach to hiring.

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

We are using Zoho to unify all our recruitment. We currently only have our email system to track all out candidates which is not efficient and the use of Zoho should make the system more streamlined and easy to use for my HR team.

What Applicant Tracking System (ATS) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Why were going with Zoho Recruit"

What do you like best?

Very Intuitive design and it integrates with other zoho products. Also it really hasnt forgotten anything necessary for recruiters

What do you dislike?

im not a fan of SAAS at all. Its cloud based and i have always preferred non cloud based

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try the enterprise but you should be fine with the pro then really consider their other products cause u will save time in the long run

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

Were a new recruitment agency and starting out usually means that a lot of customization is required. With Zoho Recruit 95 % of the manual work that would be required has already been done for us so customization is at a minimum. That's a big time saver. Also using this program will really organize your business as it takes all facets of recruitment into consideration. Whats really best though is that it ties into all of zoho's other products really well and if you think about it why would you really want to use 5 different software's to manage your business.

With recruit we store our docs, we send emails, we send sms, we integrate with FB which is really important for us, . we can chat with team mates we can mass mail and plenty more so yes its a SAAS but it really works out to be less costly in the long run because you have all of this integration and software is updated regularly.

"Application tracking system for recruitment firm "

What do you like best?

I had 30 working days to test Zoho recruit, its so easy to set up a career page through which you can get applications. it also intergrates with other platforms like Zapier.

What do you dislike?

some of the features that I would like use are still under construction. for example, to have employers to log into the system and view the profiles of shortlisted candidates.

it is involving for Zoho recruit system to be customized further by creating more modules. I think if your recruitment involves a lot of industries you may have to create more modules to accommodate what you do

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zoho recruit is built specifically for recruitment. If this is what you do then it worthy your time

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

advertising open positions and getting applications,

So far I have just set up the system to track application through to placement stage. But I believe the integration Zoho recruit has with google will enable us to communicate and sync all correspondences within Zoho.

"Zoho Recruit ATS"

What do you like best?

It is customizable as per our requirements. This is great Application Tracking system. I was using Excel Sheets which was little difficult. This has made my job easier. There are quite a lot of big players in the market for application Tracking system. But the cost is way higher. This Zoho Recruit comes for a reasonable price. This is helping us to do things in a more organized way. The interview scheduling and follow ups is made easy. We can see the reports of our company performance as well as the individual recruiter's performance. Each an every company will be having different strategies for business development. The regular application tracking system will be usually the same.But in Zoho recruit, we have the option of designing the application tracking system as per our company strategy, and work on it. In short, this application tracking system is very convenient and user friendly.

What do you dislike?

The Parsing tool is not that great when It comes to LinkedIn. If we try to click the parsing button. Itz copying only very limited lines, and we will have to type in the rest which is a little annoying. We will have to get a separate parsing tool for the parsing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good One. Worth Considering

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

Complete and Convenient Application Tracking System for a small startup. this is definitely a very good one. I recommend to try out this zoho recruit software. Itz definitely worth trying

"I own a recruiting company and this is my favorite ATS"

What do you like best?

Customer service is open 24/7. It works great and the platform is customizable (field, response emails etc.) I love it. It is so much more than just an ATS. We researched for three months and went with Zoho. After two years of using it, I know we made the right choice.

What do you dislike?

Their amazing two step authentication system locked me out when I got a new phone. This was a problem i was happy to have as I know if I couldnt get in, no one else can ;) aka. Their security rocks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend extra time setting it up. It will make your job, put on auto pilot. Dont hesitate to ask support for more features. These guys are programming geniuses.

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

ATS. I couldnt find one that would integrate well and this one solved that.

"Zoho Recruit Review"

What do you like best?

Zoho Recruit is very cost effective for small businesses. The fact that they also offer additional services (Project, CRM, etc.) is also very efficient for small businesses. They offer unlimited job postings, which is a huge plus for a staffing agency.

What do you dislike?

Zoho Recruit's UI has significant room for improvement. Over the past weeks we have had to work around publishing jobs, due to an error that pops up on the main page. The app has technical issues. It crashes at times, and certain features don't work when using the app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Improve app functionality. Allow for more features to be used on the app (submit to client), and fix issues that cause it to crash. Improve desktop UI and easy menu navigation options, and a stronger "how to" search option.

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

We are able to automate our full-life cycle recruiting process with Zoho Recruit. We have realized that there is a huge benefit to having unlimited job postings, as well as a benefit to being able to connect our candidates to our clients within one system.

"Solid System"

What do you like best?

We spent quite a bit of time searching for a suitable CRM for our startup recruitment agency. We looked at a number of the big players but were put off by the cost. Our experience with Zoho is one which has proved to excellent value for money. The product is really good value for money and they are very few features which we feel it is missing. We have used some big named CRM systems in the past and feel this is a comparable product at a significantly lower price.

What do you dislike?

It appears that you can send out multiple candidate cvs to multiple clients and have them associate with the candidate. This may be a safety system to stop recruiters spanning contacts but we feel done in a controlled manager it should be useful to all involved. That being said, we may have just not managed to work it out properly yet!

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

Complete recruitment CRM system for our startup agency..

"Experience with Zoho Recruit"

What do you like best?

I really enjoy using the Zoho Recruit applicant tracking system. It allows for customization and ease of use being easy to use is a big deal for me being a recruiter. I also like how you're able to integrate your website and outside job boards. I do believe this is the best used for smaller agencies but it can very well be configured for a mid sized company I believe it depends on the need of the company. But overall I enjoy the use of the program and would definitely recommend to other in search of an ATS system

What do you dislike?

There's not much that I can say that I dislike about Zoho recruit, its one of the ats's that I was able to jump right on and begin use without having to google or youtube tutorials

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think that any small business that is in need of an ats system would love the ease of use and appreciate all the feature and the ability to customize those features for each individual use

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

coming from a place where we had no ats and was only using an excel tracker it has help streamline my business to be more effective to clients and candidates and the benefits of having this system is place is simple it allows us to be more efficient with our workflow

"Zoho Recruit"

What do you like best?

Best platform at the best price. Only applicant tracking systems and Customer relationship manager I have found at a reasonable price. Pretty user friendly. Very similar to E recruit but priced more affordably. Overall, wonderful experience. I could not be happier.

What do you dislike?

I wish they had local telephone support. The people on the phone are not helpful and very hard to understand. The client contact and notes could be more condensed. They are too spread out and take too many clicks to view as easily as I would like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

N/A

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

Customer tracking and applicant tracking. Tracking candidate submittals to clients. Track applicants and easily view their resumes. I have not realized any benefits other than my expectations from using similar systems like e recruit and temp works.

"Fully customisable, user friendly, smart software for Recruiters!"

What do you like best?

I love the integrations for Indeed and LinkedIn, along with the features of parsing CV content, when uploading from file.

Adding jobs and posting to multiple boards in one click function is a huge time saver!

I love the fact that I can run email marketing campaigns from Zoho Recruit too.

The social media integration is a great feature too.

Easy to use, fully customisable, smart recruitment software.

What do you dislike?

I haven't found anything that I dislike to date. The generic careers page is very bland and basic, but it does what it needs to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it! It's far better than any recruitment software that I've used an it doesn't come with a huge cost associated to it either!

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

Zoho Recruit allows me to create candidates very swiftly, by parsing information direct from file. It works very well with my OCD and keeps me highly organised.

Posting jobs is quick and easy and the ability to post to numerous boards in one click is a huge benefit.

"Best option I've found after trying several"

What do you like best?

As an independent recruiter, I value the sourcing integrations with Indeed and with LinkedIn via 3rd party apps that allow LI data to be parsed and pulled in to Zoho Recruit. This speeds input time significantly. Nearly all fields, drop-downs, forms etc. can be customized and I was able to start making the interface my own from day 1. I'm still a beginner with Zoho Recruit, but I can tell it has great potential to grow with my business.

What do you dislike?

I've needed help more quickly than I can sometimes find it and I'd like to use my creativity to benefit clients, not suss out help that isn't immediately apparent. I'm still not sure how to consistently get a real time live person. So thus far, going to the forums has gotten me answers when the standard help module doesn't solve things.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely recommend doing a trial if you are interested.

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

Faster sourcing, faster data entry, an improved candidate engagement protocol, value that an independent recruiter needs when several hundred dollars a month for each tool doesn't cut it.

"Good company good pricing "

What do you like best?

I've always liked Zoho for recruiting. I've suggested this company to others a few different times also.

What do you dislike?

Pricing has its good sides. But the pricing break downs, and a lacking plan that I found to be benifitial to my. Small business needs..

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be aware that you should have a plan for recruiting well and ready before committing to their different offers. I made the mistake of under thinking my needs and had to change my package I had picked, which in turn costede. More over all.

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

Well when I needed someone quick, and I also needed someone who could provide the proof of legal backing with their proclaimed skills. With any massage therapist and any other alternative health care provider, you must be licensed through your state, and although many have skills most don't have the qualifications on paper.. With Zoho I found this to be less strenuous and frustrating.

"Fantastic Option for New and Small Staffing Firm"

What do you like best?

I've worked as a recruiter for many years but recently decided to start my own firm with a partner. Our previous experience was using Microsoft Dynamics CRM but we are thrilled we decided to give ZOHO Recruit an opportunity. It is very easy to navigate and I feel simplicity is important when operating in an ATS. The staff is also very friendly.

What do you dislike?

If I had one knock on ZOHO Recruit it would be that there is only one account rep assigned to Arizona. Although he was fantastic I thought it was kind of odd not have multiple reps. Maybe this was a miscommunication but this was told to me. One day when I needed to reach the rep he was already gone for the day and I had no one else to speak to in terms of what I needed help with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a new business trying out different ATS you need to give ZOHO Recruit a shot. The free trial really allows you to test it out and you realize it is a great Solution.

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

It is very easy to enter information into the ATS and track everything from candidates, to clients, contacts to jobs to make a smooth process as we try to start our business from the ground up.

"Just fantastic recruitment software"

What do you like best?

It is customisable. Everything you wished could just happen automatically in the recruitment process... well it does even more than that!. It's integratable with most business software. It's cloud based so no info is ever at risk. Working remotely is so easy.

What do you dislike?

There is honestly nothing I don't like about Zoho.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zoho is probably the most value for money you will find anywhere on this planet.

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

Admin burden in terms of time has been reduced to such few hours we do not need to appoint an inhouse recruitment person - I can easily manage the process on my own. It has given us invaluable analytics and helps us keep up with world trends.

"Exceptionally good piece of software - cutting down wasted time and resulting in greater work output"

What do you like best?

The interface feels easy to work with and requires very little training. Things are quite easy to figure out. It makes me look really smart :-)

Before using Zoho Recruit, we were using a manual process and it was disjointed at times. Th good thing about this software is that everything is accessible from anywhere and collaboration with other is made very easy.

What do you dislike?

There is very little I dislike. I need to customise some views and dashboards, so until I do that, I will not criticise the application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it, you will not regret.

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

I can now have all the recruitment information in one place and be able to tell what stage each candidate is in. I can also report quite easily by using the Reports and Dashboards

"Zoho Recruit Review for New Entrepreneurs in Staffing Industry"

What do you like best?

Zoho provides multiple functionalities and can help you streamline the entire hiring process. We as a staffing agency are flooded with client requirements and candidate resumes. zoho helps us streamline the entire process.

What do you dislike?

Although the entire is simple and easy to use but there are small functionalities for which you have to either watch tutorials or go through via trial & error. I would suggest whenever a new functionality is opened Zoho should display if the user would want to go through a tutorial for that functionality. Parser can be made more intelligent. People use multiple formats creating the resume specially in indian context. hence the parser can be made more intelligent to extract accurate details.

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you are confused with a lot of candidate profiles and a lot of vacant positions, then Zoho recruit is the best way to go. Being cloud based it is accessible 24X7 through mobile apps and desktop. You can automate and streamline the entire hiring process for your firm. It is also cost effective when compared to other such solutions in the market.

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

We are a new staffing agency and sometimes it is difficult to keep a track of client requirements, and candidate profiles. With the help of Zoho recruit, we streamline the entire process of hiring. We are able to keep the track of all client positions, and also tag multiple candidates for multiple positions. It makes the process very easy for us to have a clear picture of where our business is heading.

"Zoho Recruit seems to beat the rest"

What do you like best?

After a month of using Zoho Recruit it has enabled us to track candidates (easily import, parse, even add pictures), link them to jobs, email directly from Zoho and truly organize our recruiting efforts. The web based look and feel makes it easy to use and disseminate information internally.

What do you dislike?

So far we have not figured out how to customize emails or link candidates to jobs for interviews without emailing candidates. There are also steps in the process which we would like to see. These could simply be our lack of knowledge around these specific items.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly suggest trying the system out. I have used two other products with previous companies and, based on the cost and features, Zoho seems like a much better solution than either of them. I also am trying two other systems out and Zoho seems like a more complete / easy to use solution than those.

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

In our first 29 days of using the system we have closed a job, tracked activity, managed our candidates and clients effectively and it has added organization to our efforts.

"Trial Experience"

What do you like best?

Zoho Recruit allowed us to easily create a career page from which all applicants can be pooled for evaluation. It's helped streamline collecting and reviewing applicant information and offers integrations with other job boards.

What do you dislike?

While Zoho Recruit offers integrations with other job boards, we haven't been able to set one up with Indeed. We've been using a trial version to get a feel of the platform, so it may be that not all integrations are offered on trial accounts. It seems like a significant oversight of user experience if trial users are unable to connect with a job board as common as Indeed when determining which ATS they'll choose.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure Zoho Recruit supports integrations with the platforms needed if using as an ATS. If the integration hasn't been set up, all information will have to be entered manually.

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

We need to have a consolidated way to review applicants from multiple platforms quickly and easily. While we've had difficulty with integrations, Zoho Recruit could be a very convenient way for us to track applicants through our entire recruitment process.

"Good Recruitment Software - Definitely worth a look"

What do you like best?

The Recruitment software is very easily editable and customised as you need - it is definitely worth a look as you can post to multiple job boards without the need to use a multi-post software which normally costs ££££

What do you dislike?

The only thing that you could do with changing is the integration with the recruiter's website - instead of just having an i-frame / html frame etc as it would be better that had option to publish individual job to your site as it does the job boards - then it would integrate better with websites rather than just a page.

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

Recruitment Tracking and automated solution for candidate interview and feedback - which shows your business in a good and thorough light. It would also be good if it published every job to the social media automatically

"Trial Version Experience"

What do you like best?

I like the intuitive outline, clear and precise layout and the fact that Recruit is combined with many other features which I can use with regards to my work - campaigns, marketing, docs, job board function, email and it's integration with other systems. GDPR compliance function seems to be working at present already, also communication with regards to that and support - although only via email for me now- is good, quick and informative.

What do you dislike?

I appreciate the fact that there is Staffing Agency and Enterprise/ Corporate version - however, I am wondering what would be and is the best suited for the freelancers - headhunters working on their own. Would be good to have the specially dedicated solution there, taking specific of this work into consideration separately.

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

Integration of different modules works well for me. I realized the benefits of automatization while working on my own especially.

What do you like best?

Zoho Recruit is a very simple to use software, which eases down the Recruitment Management work. It helps in improving the candidate management and in coordinating the interviews with other interviewers

Recruiters should promptly use this, which will make their recruitment process more transparent and faster

"Very limited features for an ATS"

What do you like best?

Like that I can post to multiple job boards directly through zozo

What do you dislike?

Of all the job boards included, we only receive candidates from ziprecruiter - was told that I'd have to call each of the other job boards directly to figure out why we're not getting applicants. This was supposed to be a solution to dealing with a bunch of job boards separately.

Doesn't include some features that I feel are super basic for ANY ATS, particularly one that's supposedly designed for large organizations -

- can't separate job applications by location, so they all come into one inbox

- aside from "resume inbox," can't specify a source for any job boards outside of the ones zoho posts to, so I still have to run reports manually

- applications that come in through the resume inbox have no location attached. Can't even tell which email template to use, location/owner to assign them to

- Only one interview calendar - no ability to create a calendar for each location

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're only managing one location and don't intend to use any job boards beyond what's included, its capabilities are sufficient.

If you're managing multiple locations and using other applicant sources, look elsewhere for something with more capabilities and options for customization.

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

Can't really say that the recruit feature in Zoho has solved any problems - it's very difficult to use/customize, and I'm still having to do a lot of things manually that a software like this should be able to automate

"Much Better!"

What do you like best?

Zoho has continued to improve their products since I last used Zoho in 2014. Getting to know the product again has been fun and the added technical enhancements have been well thought out.

I have yet to use the parsing feature in the new offering but am looking forward to doing so shortly. The ability to add and maintain different fields/forms in the product is useful as well.

What do you dislike?

Zoho - while well priced is starting to inch it's way up the food chain in regard to pricing. I still believe that it's a good product for the price but if the price continues to inch it's way up we will need to obtain additional capacity and product flexibility to continue to utilize it on a go forward basis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering using Zoho Recruit you owe it to yourself to check out this product. It's pretty easy to use and set up and the flexibility it provides with layout is good well.

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

As we work with healthcare organizations and hospitals and have to recruit quickly we needed a product that would be easily searchable, customizable and would allow for vendor staffing relationships as well. This meets all those needs.

"Great for small business"

What do you like best?

can be simplified to do only what you need. Great customer service. Fields are simple to adjust making the entry process as unique as you would like. They offer regular webinars for people interested in trying their software. Ideal for small business needs. Much more than a CRM or ATS - system allows for book keeping, invoice generation - essentially all the tools needed from a management standpoint as well as a producing employee.

What do you dislike?

difficulty setting up a Zoho mail account using a pre-established domain. Can be a little overwhelming at first, however customer service is great at walking you through the steps. Much quicker to get a handle on that the CRMs I have used with prior companies, however there are alot more options that you will need to sort through.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Free trial gives you plenty of time to see if is the right fit for your company. So far as it;s been by far the best system I have worked with.

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

It genuinely makes the CRM process worthwhile. It allows me to bundle book keeping, invoice tracking, commission schedules, as well as client/prospect and applicant tracking.

"Zoho Recruit works great for Insurance Agencies! "

What do you like best?

I own a work site benefits company in Louisiana. I've been using ZOHO CRM for over a year and love it. We do a lot of recruiting for 100% commission agents and at times it can be hard to find and manage what agent is in what part of the process when we hire them. Zoho Recruit is by far one of the most affordable and easy online / mobile software applications for recruiting as a agency owner. I highly recommend Zoho Recruiter!

What do you dislike?

I haven't been in it for a long time but I know the customization portion can be a little overwhelming at times.

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

I'm solving the problem of wondering who all I have in my pipeline of applicants. Also, those candidates who schedule interviews, confirm that are coming and then NO SHOW can now be transferred to the naughty list of applicants I'm not willing to hire. Problems solved on repeat applicants that are undesirable.

"Easy to use! "

What do you like best?

Zoho Recruit is super easy to use - it offers great functionality and extremely high levels of customization. We are a multi national company, but relatively small, and all our locations have found it easy to work with. Also the pricing is superb for a product that does so much.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I think it could be nicer to look at but I would take functionality over beauty any day! Aside from that, there really isn't much I would change.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a shot, I had originally discounted it but then took another look and decided it was the best system for our company.

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

We have used Zoho to build a new careers website, which we didn't have before. We also are using the tool to improve on our processes and feedback.

This tool has given us a much better platform to build relationships candidates, something that we really needed to do in our industry.

"Great recruiting software for small firm"

What do you like best?

Zoho recruit is simple to use, and seems to have all of the capabilities of bigger brand, more pricey systems. It is customization and has email integration, both of which were very important to me as a recruiter running my own small business.

What do you dislike?

I haven't run into any issues yet with Zoho recruit, it seems to run smoothly and functions well. As any issues may arise, the customer support is very accessible and quick to assist.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would certainly recommend others give it a try. You can run a free trial to see if you like it so there is nothing to loose.

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

It allows me to operate efficiently and saves time and money which is great as a small business. Keeping in touch with your connections is super important in the recruiting world and Zoho recruit makes this task easier and gives you the ability to extend your reach.

"A really nice web based ATS software"

What do you like best?

It really seems to do everything we need it to do at fraction of the cost of the big name ATS software companies. The price is good. We are creating our customized company career pages now with it. Also, like that it integrates with Google Calendar which we use, saving time with re-entering interview data in the calendar. The free version is very basic, and didn't do enough for us, but the $25 monthly plan seem robust enough for our needs. Good value. If you have used Zoho CRM, this will be a cinch for you to convert over to using for your recruiting. Now have been using for several months and plan on continuing use.

What do you dislike?

It claims to post jobs on job boards, but those are sites that no one ever goes too. So that feature is useless. The learning curve was longer than I would of wanted, and support is there both through phone and email. But email is about a 24 hour response, and phone is in India. So the hours are tricky for live support. I would like to have a implementation specialist to assist in setting up and getting the software customized. And yes, there is a lot of customization that can be done with the software, but it's a bit of trial and error getting it dialed in the way you want it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Dedicate some time to get set-up. Once we got past the set-up it seems to flow pretty good.

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

Basic ATS system for tracking incoming candidate resumes for multiple office location recruitment and hiring purposes. Using to have one dashboard for all candidates flowing through, and parsing resumes.

Easy to track candidates through to the end.

"A great product for the money!"

What do you like best?

Zoho Recruit is a great product scaled to suit a medium to small recruiting shop or internal HR dept, depending on whether you choose the 3rd party recruiter or corporate recruiter versions. We are an agency so we use the 3rd party version. It also integrates and tracks your email and workflow.

Zoho Recruit talks to all other Zoho products like CRM, Invoice, Accounting, etc... - Easily integrates with 3rd party tools like Phone Bridge, Zapier, etc... - Is a great value for the money if you are a solo or even an enterprize operation.

What do you dislike?

- Some features still need to be built out a little further - 3rd party version will not push to Indeed if you are a staffing firm but that may be more due to Indeed than Zoho. The parsing feature is cumbersome but you can bulk upload multiple resumes ta a time and let Zoho bulk parse them for you too.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to evaluate the levels of subscriptions to determine the level of capabilities you need. A larger firm would definitely need the enterprise product.

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

Zoho Recruit helped our company get up and running on a small budget and continues to deliver value over time.

"Smart and Effective"

What do you like best?

I have been trying out a few different CRM solutions over the last few weeks, as the company I working for are looking for a basic CRM to store and manage C.Vs of agents around the UK.

Of all the ones I have tested, Zoho is the only one that has really met our needs as it has a nice and easy to follow layout, and inputting data for various fields was much easier, as I could simply copy and paste in the column of information from excel as apposed to copying it cell by cell, which I had to do with another leading CRM software.

What do you dislike?

So far there is nothing I completely dislike, maybe would prefer it if I could cut down on the amount of menu items in the side and top bar but that might be possible anyway, still learning how to use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

From the viewpoint of someone who has not had direct experience with setting up a CRM database for a company in the past, I have found Zoho to be very easy to use and set up. I also think that they layout is the much nicer than other CRMs. It is minimalist but in a good way, as my company only needs it for relatively simple needs I found other CRMs were incredibly cluttered with a lot of options that our users didn't need and would likely be confused by.

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

We want to keep a record of workers that have been with us before that live in Britain, so we can easily search for people with specific skills living in a certain area, to minimise the amount of time spent contacting Agencies.

"A good to have utility for recruitment productivity"

What do you like best?

An easy to understand tool with most of the required features well in place.

What do you dislike?

Apart from few limitations in customizing the platform, most of the features are in the like side.

1) There is only one rich text section allowed in the job description section. Well, this can still be managed, 2) There is no rich text section available in candidate application section, which is a disappointment.

3) Domain customization is limited to having a sub-domain. Any URL with sytax of domain_name/folder_name cannot be used. The limitation is perhaps to add SSL services to domain which in that case becomes a big positive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the trial thoroughly and you will get the feel.

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

1) Defining recruitment process flow.

2) Managing resume database

3) Increasing operational efficiency.

"Zoho Recruit"

What do you like best?

Great applicant database that allows you to easily import resumes, which automatically populates database fields. This makes the application so efficient and effective as it eliminates double data entry. Also Zoho Recruit integrates well with most of the popular job boards such as Indeed and allows you associate candidates from those sites into your database with ease.

What do you dislike?

I'm not that good with code which is required with some of the email customization, however I have pushed myself to learn it, which has given me a skill I otherwise wouldn't have had.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend Zoho Recruit for it's efficiency and effectiveness at processing applicants. The integration with popular job posting boards is great and makes importing candidates into your database very easy and straight forward. Also integrates nicely with social media platforms. Another great benefit is that you can update candidates at any state of your recruitment process. Additionally Zoho Recruit allows you to make comparative candidate evaluations with ease. Plus you can also forward resumes to clients that are branded to your brand and the system automatically reformats cv's to remove all candidate contact details which is another great time saving feature. The reporting system is also better than any other program I have used and is exceptionally good for keeping yourself and other consultants on track.

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

You never miss an applicant from a recruitment process across several different advertising platforms.

"Great software, easy to use, well priced"

What do you like best?

I was able to create a standard job application to use across all my jobs. Then I created different assessments that I could have specific to each job. It was also easy to track all the candidates and their progress in our application process.

What do you dislike?

There was a few hoops to jump through when setting up automated workflows. It seemed I had to create the same thing more than once.

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

I wanted to be able to have an easy to use job application for candidates to go through and ask some extra questions to help screen candidates. I also wanted a central place to track all of our candidates and keep their status updated.

"Absolutely awesome ATS "

What do you like best?

I have only worked on very old ATS programs and this being my first "up to date" ATS is absolutely amazing the things I can do with it. Its customizable for all my needs and so easy to navigate. I would recommend this ATS program. It definitely makes recruiting alot more organized.

What do you dislike?

I dont dislike anything about it. Everything about this program is great!

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the perfect ATS if you are looking for a program you can customize for your specific needs. Its very user friendly.

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

This program is keeping me so organized with orders, candidates, clients and notes. It has everything you need and can customize it to your needs as well.

"Simple yet Elegant and Powerful"

What do you like best?

The entire software being Online and on cloud so accessible from anywhere

Easy interface, does the job for you

Resume parsing is much better than a lot of other softwares

What do you dislike?

The time customer care takes to respond

Does not look like the sales team is very eager to sell products, nobody gets back with a good price or to negotiate

I feel the product is good but people act very pricey

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please push your sales team to meet and engage the customer, companies might be small but they can still give you business. Drop by drop makes an ocean remember this

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

Makes my company recruiters life easier with a lot of automated reports

Parsing is much better, hence reduces time and effort

Not too many unwanted feautures

Useful when working from home

"Amazing Product"

What do you like best?

I am a recruiter based in Bristol that has just started his first own recruitment business. Zoho has made this my data management and organisation so much simpler and I never forget a thing with the reminder function. Love the way I can find candidates by how far away from the company I hope to place them in is. I would never consider using a different CRM.

What do you dislike?

only being able to upload 6 CV's at a time

"Good Functionality and Easily Adapted"

What do you like best?

I am just starting to set up recruiting on my own and researched thoroughly all of the different systems to use.

For me the most important features were as follows:

- Time efficiency - I didn't want to spending loads of time adding CV's and records, I needed to be spending my time developing my business rather than admin!.

- Searchability - one of the things I really wanted to ensure I could do is have complex searches for candidates and clients. Oho Recruit lets you easily search on all fields and access saved criteria at the click on the mouse.

- Cost - out of all of the systems I looked at this was the most reasonable for such a proficient system.

- Add Ons - I also like that you can easily access invoicing etc all from the same client.

Overall, definitely try this this - its sophisticated to do pretty much what you want with it!

What do you dislike?

The only negative I have come across so far is that its not that easy to use attached documents, unless I haven't figured out the best way to do it yet. I usually have 3 x set documents for each candidate so writing each out, loading to docs, then attaching to the candidate seems to have one step too much in it.

However, this is the only thing I have found which I could say wasn't fantastic.

Functionality of mobile apps isn't that great and much of it is limited although does give you access to all of the records.

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

Its helping me save time on admin and manage ad response effectively which is great for an independent recruiter. Also, when dealing with lots of candidates its has really thorough ways of tracking and monitoring what stage each is at.

"A No Nonsence Recriting Suit"

What do you like best?

Its so easy to set up, its like if you can see it you can set it up with ease. Custimized career portal is a huge bonus, you can just put a leaping impact on the recrut who is see you first.

What do you dislike?

No much of my dislikes, Zoho recruit play like a breeze.

Recommendations to others considering the product

One of the most simple and powerful recruiting solution. Feature such as posting in other job portal in a click is a kind of gift for the HR professionals.

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

I can hit multiple bulls eye by the Post to popular job boards feature. Post once and it reflects every where its so convinient and less messy than the traditionaly multiple login methods.

"Great product bundle"

What do you like best?

Starting a new business (sole proprietor) comes with a lot of opportunity and baggage - everybody wants your business but you can't get a good feel unless you pay. Well, Zoho allows small start-ups free options to see what a great product it is and then "get hooked". That's where I am. Very pleased with the personalization the free version gives. It's only been a six months and I am prepared to start bundling an building.

What do you dislike?

It's hard to dislike a free product that allows you to learn the program before becoming a paid member.

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

My issues are in process and growing at the same rate as my business. With any issues, Zoho CSRs are fantastic in guiding and resolving.

"Solution to your Recruiting needs"

What do you like best?

The simplicity of Zoho is the essence of its growth. And I really loved it. It is so simple handy even a novice can use it. We have improved a lot after using this ATS as we didn't knew where our candidates were and what was the status of theirs on to different jobs. It helped us a lot and automated half of the things, may be it is interview management or finding a right resource or tracking the candidate with their previous information. Zoho recruit helped us a lot and worked even more then our expectations.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes integration becomes a bit bulky but there is great support that helps you a lot

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zoho Recruit is the one stop solution So you shouldn't worry a bit in order to move ahead with this solution

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

We used to have n number of candidates but we were never able to figure out the what we had a conversation with them.

"So far, so good!"

What do you like best?

I work for a startup company. After much research and many trials of other platforms, we decided to go with Zoho. It seems to have the most robust family of apps that seamlessly integrate with other systems apps helping to streamline our processes as we build them. And the pricing is quite competitive.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to really "dis" like as of yet. Just takes some getting used to as we get familiarized with everything.

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

Since we are a startup, we are just building our operations including the talent management department. In short, the only "problems" we are solving at the moment is getting the department off the ground!

"Perfect solution for the small recruiting firm"

What do you like best?

Zoho Recruit is the perfect solution for upstart and small recruitment firms looking for an ATS that can scale with the needs of the business. The dashboard is intuitive, data can be easily input, and users can be added quickly. You get all the bells and whistles of the big companies at a price that fits any budget.

What do you dislike?

No real dislikes. The color scheme could be a touch warmer but one gets used to it. Job posting can be a bit cumbersome sometimes but it's not overly burdensome.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a small firm or upstart looking for an affordable ATS with the necessary features, this is your solution.

We are able to bring candidates into our recruitment workflow and work efficiently.

"Very use Friendly"

What do you like best?

The user friendliness. Its a no hassle turnkey product for a recruiter.

What do you dislike?

It is a bit of a mission to add job titles, but at least once its done, its there for the remainder of your use. It would be awesome though, if Zoho built in the job titles into the drop down menu as you input them when loading a new candidate if its a new job title.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You have to try it. If you looking for user a user friendly product that you can update and change to your specific needs without it costing you and arm and a leg - then this is it.

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

Its quick. I get to my clients faster. I can prepopulate the database outside working hours. Just all round less stress :-)

"Two Thumbs Up for Zoho Recruit!"

What do you like best?

Zoho Recruit is great! It is easy to set up and easy to use. It took me less than a day to set up this application. I love the ease of parsing resumes and updating candidate information in Zoho Recruit.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing, really, that comes to mind to dislike about this product. It was everything that I needed to manage my candidates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend Zoho Recruit, especially to new organizations starting out, based on the fact that it is easy to set up and easy to use.

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

In addition to the ease of parsing resumes and updating candidate information in Zoho Recruit, I also love the fact that it integrates with Indeed, making it easy to search for relevant resumes for your job postings. I am able to set up and automate email templates. This feature is a genuine time-saver.

"Best application ever"

What do you like best?

I have been using Zoho for a year now and its so easy to use. I signed up for the webinar and I didn't even need it, you can teach yourself as its so user friendly.

As well as it being such a simple tool, the customer service and support has been the best I have received. I had a few connection issues with the system that weren't Zohos fault and they were still keen to help me. They called me back within an hour and talked me through the issues simply.

The system itself has everything you need to start your own agency, with candidates, client and sales actively. The reporting elements are spot on and you can track productivity really easy. I would recommend Zoho recruit to anyone starting there own agency.

The cost is great, you can pay more the bigger you grow, this really does cater for all users and size business.

What do you dislike?

So far the only part I am not to keen on is the search function in the candidate section. It is similar in the email for Zoho, but you can not just put the first letters of your search. For instance, if I was looking for Bob Bradley, I would have to type in the entire first or last name instead of just putting in "brad" and see what comes up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

this is the best tool... everyone should use it

"ATS for Recruiting Agency"

What do you like best?

We already tried Zoho Recruit. Found that this program is quite matched with our requirement that we need. First of all, the interface is user friendly a lot. The program is well designed and coding. We can easily input the information among candidate, client, contact, vacancy. It is really easy to use for non-technical IT geek. The speed of the software is fast. Really like this software.

What do you dislike?

Frankly speaking, we don't have any negative point on this software. Only concern, it is customization module. It needs some technical IT support to help create customization e.g. candidate, contact, client, job opening form. But I think it is not difficult. And it should provide free space on cloud space also. So, we don't have to pay rental fee for cloud space per month.

It would be nice if it had some sort of Wizard feature that ask some questions and built the first bit of frame work for you.

You need to be comfortable with editing and changing settings and have a clear idea of your needs to be able to set up.

"Easy to use and feature-rich for recruiters"

What do you like best?

The system is easy to use, with everything you need available with a few clicks. It's not a complicated system to master, which is perfect for us, being a fairly new recruiting agency. We looked at quite a few systems before we chose Zoho Recruit, and we were really impressed with the simplicity of the platform.

What do you dislike?

Not much, but as a suggestion perhaps you could add the ability to see tags on the candidates home screen, where they are listed. It will allow you to see notes or a quick reminder about a candidate without having to click on a name and look at the next detail screen to know what should happen with that specific candidate next.

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

The ability to have a centralized work space with all your candidates, jobs and clients together. Improves workflow and document management. Easy to see a quick overview of your vacancies, candidates and clients with the dashboards, which are also customizable. System is also easy for new users to learn.

"Flexibility"

What do you like best?

I've used Zoho services before (CRM, Creator, etc.) and decided to use Recruiter for this new business. It has worked better than expected, specially because of its flexibility compared to other services we looked at. It allows us to connect to third party systems using web hooks and automating the process, the way we need it to work.

What do you dislike?

There are some improvements that could be made, details in building a form, for example, where there is no option to include radio buttons (at least we haven't yet found that option. For now using a yes/no checkbox.

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

"Best Tool Ever"

What do you like best?

it is simply awesome, lots of features, integration with my favorite tools in zoho and external applications as well, fancy reporting, just what i needed.

Integration is at hand, very easy to use and intuitive, one click access once you are in your zoho account, email inbox right in the tool.

What do you dislike?

Probably more options to brand the tool acording to the corporate image would be great, not much customization right now

Make sure you have a clear plan of what you want to do, if you are going to use this for inhouse recruiting or to outsource a service, but anyways this tool will fit you perfectly

"Best Recruiter ATS that I've found"

What do you like best?

I spent over 2 months trying out various ATS systems for my team of recruiters. I was looking for something that was affordable but gave us everything we needed. I can honestly say that I would recommend Zoho Recruit hands down. It has made it so much easier to track candidates, keep a flow of what's going on with each one as well as team up with the Sales team to ensure that the jobs are getting coverage. It's not perfect but it gets the job done affordably.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that I can't see Active candidates on the job screen, just the candidates that have been associated.

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

We are able to have better line of sight where the candidates are in the process and also see the communications that are happening with each one. I am also able to see recruiter productivity.

"New Zoho User"

What do you like best?

I like the cost effectiveness of Zoho. I honestly don't know how we would be getting on with starting a new Talent Acquisition Firm without it. We work really hard to ensue that our candidates are having the best experience possible and using Zoho allows us to do that.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the need to create so many functions by hand. I also do not like that the statuses are hard set and cannot be edited to fit the flow of my recruitment process. I had to go back and tailor that to fit Zoho and not the other way around which is weird.

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

We are solving the problem of staying organized, having a careers site and on-click posting our available jobs externally to other 3rd party job boards.

"Exactly What I have been looking for"

What do you like best?

I am a recruiter and have been looking every where for a system that will assist me in keeping up with the resumes that have been submitted. I have really enjoyed learning this system. I am not computer savy and this system is very easy to learn and has outstanding support alone the way. They also give you a free trial to try out the system and ask questions so you can make sure this is the system you are looking for. I love this system and plan an using them for a long time to come.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about this system is how long it took me to figure out how I wanted to set up my candidate tab and how I want to use the system and rearrange items but there isnt really much I do not like because this is the first system I have come across that is simple to use once I figure out How i want to use it for my business

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

This system is helping me keep up with all of my resumes that have been submitted for a job and helping me keep up which ones need to be worked and staying on top of what i am doing.

"A highly adaptable resource to meet our niche requirement"

What do you like best?

The ability to add/edit and rearrange almost all fields to suit our requirements as a military service provider.

What do you dislike?

There is little I dislike about this system, I am still getting to grips with the reporting functions which are not as straight forward as the rest of the system but otherwise it is working well for me.

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

We have previously had two recruiters trying to work from the same Excel spreadsheet. This is hard to report from and cumbersome when it comes to connecting clients and candidates.

"Professionalizing the volunteer organization"

What do you like best?

Zoho was extremely easy to setup and get up and running. I was able to easily import data about the volunteers from a spreadsheet and get the positions setup. I was also able to extend the fields to customize the experience to match the non-profit volunteer organization needs.

What do you dislike?

Being a non-profit volunteer organization we will not be using all the bells and whistles the software offers for a commercial recruiting/HR team. I could not find an easy way to hide away the full breadth of features from the team members that are using the software for the first time.

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

In the context of our organization using Zoho recruit we are able to manage the available volunteer pool that is willing to offer service and match them with opportunities within the organization in a lot more streamlined way. This allows us to provide great experience and relevant service opportunities for our volunteers while finding qualified and targeted volunteer recruitment for the various positions in our teams. We could never achieve those results with the old spreadsheets.

"Zoho Recruit - Great Tool for our Business"

What do you like best?

Zoho Recruit is very user friendly, it wasn't difficult to get going. I was soon bulk uploading cvs (in word format) and client details (excel format). It was pretty self explanatory and not over complicated.

What do you dislike?

I was able to find a group demo to join quickly as they are scheduled regularly, however a one to one demo might be more helpful at the beginning.

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

We are able to store all our candidates CVs, parse the CVs by skill set & then find the relevant CVs when needed. We are also able to use the mailshot facility which is a real bonus. We believe Zoho help us grow our business and in a way which is affordable.

"Highly Recommended CRM system for start-up agencies"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to use, even for the technically challenged! Very intuitive and so simple to customise the fields or add/remove them as required. As a start-up business, my focus needs to be on recruiting so I don't have the time to read complicated manuals (besides I have no patience for doing that anyway) but it is very easy to use and therefore you don't need to. Easy to search and access the data as needed. THe best part is that it comes at a fantastic price!

What do you dislike?

So far I have not found anything to dislike..............

Recommendations to others considering the product

Would highly recommend this CRM

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

"Effective Recruiter Tool"

What do you like best?

I really liked its simplicity which helps you get going really quickly, 'out of the box' it works where some don't or take a lot of configuration. The style and delivery of data & information back to me was easy to understand.

What do you dislike?

User Interface is a bit clunky if I'm honest. It does what it says on the tin but I have used better-looking software that is just as powerful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

At least give it a try

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

"Great value - great platform - definitely recommend for experienced user"

What do you like best?

Zoho is a strong platform with a great API to expand functionality. What I like best is being able to add new custom functionality for my organization. It's great for any company that wants a software to fit their process instead of modify yours to meet the software.

What do you dislike?

Occasional bugs in the software. But the team is fast to fix them. The setup could be overwhelming for a non-tech savvy user. I would suggest that person get some help with setup.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Tech savvy users should plan for a couple weeks of setup/customization. If you're new to using an ATS, find someone familiar with the product to help you.

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

We solve the problem of making remote recruiting easier for schools. The biggest benefits have come by way of automation allowing us to deliver more value for our clients with less time consumed by our staff.

"Good solutions for personal agency"

What do you like best?

- customization all modules (jobs opening, candidates, clients, contacts etc.)

- many application e.g. CRM, Sales etc.

- two factor authentication

- user friendly design

- more variability

What do you dislike?

Not good customization forecast detail,. In one card you can have more position (e.g. for one comapany you can hiring e.g. five candidates with the same description, so you have open one record), but you can´t entry diferent salary for the hired candidates. Not user friendly task - task will be closed on the date, not when you solve it.

Finally we have all information in one application. We have connected candidates, jobs and clients.

"Great CRM For Recruitment"

What do you like best?

I've been using Zoho Recruit for my recruitment company, ImmenTech. I'm very pleased with the way they've built the web app. I didn't previously know that Zoho offered an option for recruitment agencies so I was very impressed to discover that they do and it's even more user-friendly than dedicated solutions I've used in the past.

What do you dislike?

I haven't discovered anything I dislike about it yet, it does everything I want it to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try the free trial and I think you'll be impressed.

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

We have to organise a database of clients and candidates. We have a list of jobs we are working on at any given time and a list of suitable candidates who will be considered, introduced, interviewed, offered etc. so it's a very difficult process to organise efficiently. Zoho Recruit makes it easy to track things quickly, which saves a lot of time and prevents mistakes.

"Zoho Recruit Review Two week Trail"

What do you like best?

I had 15 day Trail of Zoho recruit, The set up was simple. Forme having used Bullhorn previously the interfaced looked familiar and it was easy to navigate. As such if you want to avoid getting to grips with a new CRM type system having been using Bullhorn I would recommend it.

I liked that you could build and modify existing modules to personalize the service. Having the drop down tab for all your actual jobs makes coding/finding candidates, and jobs simply. I felt it was important to have this function to avoid the hassle of more blunt searches.

As such everything is at hand and can be quickly accessed.

I am mainly using it as a database and process tracker. So I can't comment on more advanced features such as marketing tools. But for my usage the price is right.

What do you dislike?

For me, the frustrating things were:

knowing which plan to pick, on the free trial you are given the option of the most encompassing Enterprise Version as an option. So I picked this. But after using it for a while I knew I wouldn't need this level of service. However, the price plan is a little ambiguous on the differences between say "Full Customization" and limited Customization. But customer services were good at giving me more details.

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

Mostly for Applicant Tracking and a database function.

"Zoho recruit for a start up recruitment agency"

What do you like best?

The intuitive interface and the workflows make learning how to use Zoho Recruit really quick. From client you can click on contact and from job to candidate submitted is really easy. You can get up and running in about half an hour.

The more you use it the more you benefit. Candidate and client tagging make matching easy.

It's feature rich and I'm discovering new capability all the time.

Add to that it's cheap and there is no contract.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any real dislikes. For me as a start up it is more than up to the task. The free version with a few more features would be more than adequate, but the entry level premium package is more than enough for what I need.

Difficult to dislike anything about it at this price.

If anything it would be that the job board interface has been difficult to configure so I have given up, but I'm sure with more time I would figure it out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great product for a start up and grows with you as your business grows. Plenty of social functionality as well

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

For me it's all about using as a CRM for tracking my client activity, managing open jobs and tracking my candidates.

The greatest benefit is time management. I try to add a task every time I perform an activity. That way I open the app at the start of the day and all my calls are there ready for me to make.

"Good Option, but limited."

What do you like best?

It has a good interface that is easy to use, views are very well designed. Price is King, and this is an affordable options even at premium levels. Highly customizable. Free option available with a robust feature set. Integrates well with your website. Job Posting is very easy and customizable. This ATS option is an easy-to-use Applicant Tracking System and Recruitment Software that can help you track job openings, resumes, candidates and contacts more quickly and efficiently.

What do you dislike?

The interface is a minimalist design and has not kept up with current elements. I would like to see questionnaires or custom assessments to compare the candidate against the posting, and it does not rank that candidate for that position. Support was not really good. We had a issue with the candidates applying in our career page, and it would tell them they would get a password emailed to them, and they never got the emails, leaving the candidate hanging. We contacted support, and support was almost non-existent. They DO NOT have 24/7 support despite what websites say, and they are not as responsive to solve the solution. Many times I had to leave a message to go in to a blackhole when their chat support want available. In fact I never seen anyone available for chat.

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

We needed to collect and manage resumes, automate, question and test the vetting quickly and intergrate the postings into our career page. The biggest benefit is it is a good option for a company that does not have to vet resumes against a posting in a short timeframe. If you just need a low cost solution, and you can compare the resumes to the posting manually, then this is a great option.

"Lower Recruiting Costs"

What do you like best?

We've been recruiting since 2001. The Zoho Recruit platform has been the easiest to tailor so far. It keeps communication between our different offices smooth and it's reduced our operating costs.

What do you dislike?

If we could add customization to a candidate's profile that was a checklist for how well they match each of the jobs individually, then that would be icing on the cake.

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

Zoho Recruit has solved the problem of it taking so long to post our open jobs on multiple sites. It's also reduced the time it takes to collaborate between our recruiting staff.

"Surprising for such a less cost! Epatant pour un logiciel si abordable!!!!"

What do you like best?

Le logiciel est assez facile à utiliser, une fois complètement implémenté, ce sera un système fantastique pour mon équipe RH à l'avenir.

De plus, étant basé sur le Cloud, il est beaucoup plus facile que sur un logiciel de se tenir à jour. La prise en main ne se fait pas en quelques minutes mais une fois acquise c'est très naturel

What do you dislike?

J'ai eu quelques difficultés à trouver certaines configuration ou comprendre comment elles fonctionnaient.

De plus, certaines fonctionnalités ne sont pas encore entièrement implémentées, donc je ne peux pas tester complètement avant le déploiement.

C'est un processus très complexe pour personnaliser le système de recrutement Zoho pour qu'il soit exactement comme nous le voulons.... mais il a l'avantage de nous permettre de le personnaliser ce qui n'est pas le cas d'autres logiciels

Recommendations to others considering the product

Considering the low fees... Zoho is out of expectation regarding our needs and even offers more than we even wanted.

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

Il faut bien planifier les fonctionnalités que vous désirez et celles que vous utiliserez reellement avant de commencer,

il y a tellement d'options que vous pouvez perdre en décidant ce que vous voulez inclure.

Pour notre petit cabinet de chasseur de têtes: Zoho Recruit réunit l'ensemble du processus de recrutement en un seul package facile à utiliser et permet une approche simplifiée de l'embauche.

Nous utilisons Zoho pour unifier tout notre recrutement. Nous avons actuellement seulement notre système de courrier électronique pour suivre tous les candidats qui n'est pas efficace et l'utilisation de Zoho devrait pallier à ce manque d'information à jour et partagé.

"Great help!!"

What do you like best?

I have just started using the system to give an extensive review but the worst I could is that the initial set up was a little slower than I would have preferred, but once set up it was very easy to use.

It is also very easy to customize the Zoho recruit system to be exactly how we want it.

What do you dislike?

The long list of options may get someone lost at the beginning but keeping a concrete list of what you want to achieve with Zoho Recruit can be help ease you into using it.

Regardless of your company size, Zoho Recruit brings the entire recruitment process together in one easy to use package and allows for a more streamlined approach to hiring.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We are using Zoho to unify all our recruitment and it's been doing a great job at it

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

What do you like best?

I really enjoy the ability to customize the recruitment process and automate many of the tasks, emails, etc. The customer service has been awesome as well

What do you dislike?

The amount of customization is a positive and a negative. It takes some time to get things setup right and it is not ready to roll right out of the box, in my experience.

Don't rely on first impressions. The more that you use the product, the more comfortable you will be with it and the more you will appreciate the powerful features.

"Unifying solution for recruiters in multiple locations"

What do you like best?

Zoho Recruit allowed us to quickly implement a solution without tasking our IT team. We continue to expand and refine our use of the software with no support from our IT group. The software is easy to use and customize without extensive training. We're able to ramp new users quickly. The software is intuitive and navigation straightforward.

I appreciate that I can gain visibility on any of our locations or recruiters from the same dashboard.

Our recruiters like that they are able to customize their candidate views and reports.

What do you dislike?

Occasionally the developers roll out updates or changes with no notice to the users. None of the changes impact daily use, but the changes are sometimes confusing to our users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your users can navigate social media platforms, they can figure out Zoho Recruit. As the sponsor, I often challenge the users to "figure it out" and they always manage to find their own solutions without extensive training. If your users require classroom style training or step-by-step instructions, Zoho Recruit may not be for you as the software does require a bit of exploration to utilize fully.

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

The primary business problem we solved was a single view of our recruiting progress. We had multiple recruiters in multiple locations trying to compile recruiting progress in real time. Zoho Recruit allowed us to centralize their efforts and give real time progress reports. In addition, the cloud solutions allows us to access our recruiting efforts from any location or device.

I dislike how some of the modules don't interact well with each other, especially how scheduling an interview automatically sends an email.

"Extensive and Seamless"

What do you like best?

Zoho has been thinking end to end, they are coming from vast experience that is the reason they made is exhaustive and no one can go back to other software as they has provided end to end.

Sometimes, it seems to be complex but if we customise it well after giving it enough time I think its worth it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have it.

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

We are using it to have our candidate list handy, its filters are great to use, to get candidates from specific city. Specially the resume parse feature is the best. We source resumes from different mediums and it is great to have them in one place.

"So far, very positive experience, simple and easy to use, plus has all the main features I need."

What do you like best?

I have tried many different recruitment softwares during the last 5 years or so, and most of them I have not really liked to use because they are just too complex and actually take up more time than they save. I want to be doing everything fast, and not entering much into boxes or clicking my mouse around all day. Zoho keeps everything simple, plus you can change the different panels and boxes, so that what you see is what you need! It's parsing of CV's and Linked In profiles is top notch. Also, the ability to import spreadsheets seamlessly into Zoho is great, it saved me lots of time as opposed to other software systems. Also, it's layout is very well suited to small laptops and to mobile/tablets (there is an app that works very well), so overall this is a great product and has everything I need.

What do you dislike?

Although I like the way everything is laid out, I think the design could be made a bit more futuristic, with a bit more color etc.

Also, it would be good if Linked In profiles could be parsed with just one click on the Chrome app, instead of having to copy and paste everything. In addition, it would be good if you could then add these Linked In profiles to a certain job vacancy that you have, like I have used on other software systems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a try

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

Originally I was actually just using Linked In and tagging people on there, and using that as my primary database. However as Linked In are now ending their tagging and notes feature (unless you upgrade to a really expensive package), I have spend the last month testing out different types of software. Zoho works really well, and it has been easy to transfer my network from Linked In to here.

"Zoho REcruit Review"

What do you like best?

1. Ease of use with minimal training. The system is very intuitive.

2. Seamless info sharing between the desktop version and Android mobile version.

3. The Chrome Extension makes resume parsing very easy, similar to other larger software solutions.

What do you dislike?

1. Parsing can be inaccurate, but this is found with other solutions.

2. The Account data does not blend well with the Zoho CRM, even when you are logged into the same Zoho Account.

Could have better integration with 3rd party job boards to help facilitate job postings.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use, Chrome Extension and mobile App for Android easy to use and seamless in data sharing.

"User friendly dashboard"

What do you like best?

The dashboard functionality is very user friendly. It is clear, concise and easy to understand. All of your apps are on a single interface and it is very convenient.

What do you dislike?

Some of the apps limit the number of records you can see per page (ex. 50 on the CRM app). It would be great to be able to scroll through all contacts on a single page. The surveys do not link seamlessly onto campaigns and would like to see this experience improved.

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

"User friendly and cost effective"

What do you like best?

Zoho Recruit has it all under one roof, from clients management with details, job openings where we can set datelines, candidates' resumes where we can retrieve whenever we need and down to arranging interviews and doing follow-ups,etc. It provides a clear transparency where we are able to see the productivity and efficiency of our recruiters and adds as a benchmark for us!

What do you dislike?

I dislike the fact that the customization levels were not high enough to tweak to our specific requirements. Nevertheless, most of the regular requirements are met by Zoho Recruit.and it is near to perfection!

"Excellent Recruitment System"

What do you like best?

I tested several alternate systems to check the resume parser with several languages, including Portuguese and Spanish. From the tested solutions Zoho Recruit was the one that I was able to get acceptable results with Portuguese and Spanish, also.

What do you dislike?

I would appreciate if the resume fields could support the resume translation in more than 1 language (e.g. Portuguese and English).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use a trial to test the system and confirm if it fits your needs.

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

I'm looking to replace our current internal recruitment systems, for a solution with similar functionality and with the possibility to automate some time consuming task, such as: resumes parsing and update the candidate data into the recruitment DB, automatic jobs publishing and automatic emails for comunications with candidates and customers,

"Very Good ATS System"

What do you like best?

In the Zoho Recruit, I liked the resume parsing feature the best. It saves lot of time adding manually candidate data into the system from a soft copy of the resume.

What do you dislike?

So far as the dislike, I do not see any issues at this moment. Pricing could be little more less.

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

Zoho Recruit is a very good ATS system with many useful features. All features were developed nicely considering the requirement for a recruiter and tracking of the applicants status.

"Best Recruitment Tool for my start up agency"

What do you like best?

I have been using Zoho for a month now and its so easy to use. I signed up for the webinar and I didn't even need it, you can teach yourself as its so user friendly.

As well as it being such a simple tool, the customer service and support has been the best I have received. I had a few connection issues with the system that weren't Zohos fault and they were still keen to help me. They called me back within an hour and talked me through the issues simply.

The system itself has everything you need to start your own agency, with candidates, client and sales actively. The reporting elements are spot on and you can track productivity really easy. I would recommned Zoho recruit to anyone starting there own agency.

The cost is great, you can pay more the bigger you grow, this really does cater for all users and size business.

What do you dislike?

The only issues I have encountered are the uploading of documents and you cant add job titles but this is due to it being a trail and this was explained.

Other that that there are not other dislikes with the system.

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

To be able to match candidates to their dream jobs made simple with Zoho. You can easily add a role and assign a candidate to it.

"Effective Tool"

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity of the tool. As well, I use Zoho CRM so there is a familiar interface. The basic solution has enough functionality for anyone to get started right away. Upgrading to the advanced solutions provides and abundance of functionality that you can integrate overtime as your needs develop. And it's all fairly straight forward to customize.

What do you dislike?

There are some functions that i would like to have that I know other ATS solutions have. However, these are not deal breakers for me and given the cost of the other applications, Zoho is a no brainer. As well, I would like there to be a little more integration between Zoho CRM and Recruit.

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

My biggest issue is that I'm dealing with a large volume of resumes that are all based on the same solution provider. I need a solution which will allow me to differentiate between all the similar resumes and quickly search them.

"Makes a Difficult Task Much Easier"

What do you like best?

I absolutely LOVE the simplicity of using ZoHo Recruit. It was so easy to use and I was worried about the difficulty of getting acquainted with all the features. I have tried many other systems before Zoho and it is by far the best. I am a first time user of an ATS so I tried many before deciding. Zoho allowed me to easily input my candidates and clients, track them, schedule my day, check in on candidates and clients with ease, make notes, quickly add open positions, on and on.

It is by far the best tracking system available and the price is absolutely the best for what you receive!

What do you dislike?

Theres really nothing that I dislike. I absolutely love Zoho Recruit.

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

Easy to add applicants

Solves tracking your clients and applicants

Ease of sending available positions to many job recruiting board sites
