I second cbiz. Have used it for years, and it's dirt cheap and robust. You can try it free for a month at www.cbizsoft.com Bullhorn is about 3x the price, at 135/month plus $600 set up fee. Cbiz is no set up fee and $39 month. It does everything, lets you inhale hundreds of resumes with one click and it will create a candidate shell for each, do bulk mail, track all your clients/jobs etc.
Thanks...I thought I saw something about a license fee....about 1200 bucks...did I misread that?? So you can get started for just 39 bucks a month..no other charges??
Can I accesss it from any laptop?? Is hosting an issue,..or for another 20 bucks they host?? Is it a download....or do I log onto their website...??
cBiz is not web-based. They will host your data for the extra $20 which gives you coverage in the event of catastrophe. cBiz installs directly on your computer. This has pros and cons... but adds security to your data in that your data is on your computer only.... unless you pay the extra $20 and have them host the data.
I see Rami mentioned a free, web-based program. I've heard of another called catsone.... check out www.catsone.com. I don't know anything about it other than it's free.
One thing I like about cBiz is that it is completely customizable. If you have any understanding of relational databases, you will feel comfortable accessing the "back end" of the database where you can add custom fields for your particular purpose and process.
Of of the best informed people on Software for recruitment and staffing has to be Mark Berger. He is a writer for The Fordyce Letter, trainer and coach and if you're going to invest time and money in a system Mark can help you in making the right choice. He talks about choosing a ATS in my recent interview with him.
