Pros

Overall, it is effective applicant software with amazing customer service. Its great for the price and does what we need it to.
I had a good experience with ApplicantStack. I don't know if it is just a better job market right now or it was the product, but I received better candidates for my open positions.
What I love the most is that I get an email when I need to review something. I don't ever have to guess if I have something outstanding, it lets me know when I need to take action.

Pros

That has been fixed in Absorb 5, which is very good news. Administrators find the Admin interface fairly easy to use, but again we're excited about seeing the changes that come with Absorb 5.
The company itself is great to work with. Their customer service staff is so nice and friendly, and the project manager and account manager I worked with helped me every step of the way.
This LMS is the best or near the top of providers and tools if you use instructor-led and online learning. For the pricing, you won't find a better tool.

Cons

I can't purge my system of client/caregiver entries that are not relevant, so they clutter my search feed. There is no report for client contacts - this is inconvenient in an emergency setting.
Although the duplicates will show up AFTER being loaded, this still means that we wasted a view on the job board we used to search AND wasted time to upload that person.
Overall the product is intuitive and easy to correct if something happens to go wrong. There are very few ways to make an error that is not recoverable.

Cons

Only downside for our institution was the inability to "hide" completed courses from the My Courses list.
This is a simple but very frustrating complaint I have about this program.
My biggest disappointment was that that the multi-tenancy or segregating by departments did not function as we expected causing us to have to adjust our offering and prices for clients.
