Broadbean overview

What is Broadbean?

Broadbean provides job posting and candidate search tools for recruiters. Broadbean is a software-as-a-service platform that allows recruiters to quickly distribute job adverts to job boards across the globe, sort and filter candidates with user-defined criteria, and analyze the hiring process for continual improvement. With features that give users oversight of ad spend, automatic aggregation across popular job boards, and social media integration, Broadbean consolidates a wealth of formerly disparate routines into one application.

Broadbean’s functions extend beyond job posting. The SaaS features candidate management as well as application tracking system (ATS) integration. Broadbean streamlines this process, placing the focus on speed and ROI. It does this while improving the overall quality of the experience for candidates by connecting them with relevant roles, even after the position for which they originally applied has been filled. The software also creates an applicant database of all candidates who complete applications, for future reference.

The software also includes employee referral tools, which can help existing employees introduce recruiters to highly qualified candidates. Broadbean’s social media integration and gamification tools bring existing employees into the recruiting process by facilitating incentives for their involvement.

Broadbean tools function as a Web-based SaaS within any browser and on popular social networking sites.

Overall it is easy to work with support and is almost always up and running as a service. Broadbean also has a good amount of integration options for whatever applicant tracking system you are currently using.

Pros
Very good user interface for recruiters to use while searching for candidates and for passive recruiting. Job posting is also very straightforward.

Cons
No auto user provisioning makes it a pain to add users to another system. Manually changing credentials could be a smoother process as well.

Best Job Board Aggregator on the Market

Broadbean has been a great partner with us. We love their product and really wish we would be able to utilize their resume search feature within our current ATS. Their Job Posting function which we currently use works without any issues. We very rarely have any issues with Jobs not posting correctly. Overall a great product that does exactly what you need it to do.

Pros
The best ability with this software is the quickness and usability. When I say quickness, I am referring to how fast the tool finds results and uploaded them into the ATS (applicant tracking system). The code they have built is much better than any competitor on the market. Usability is a big plus for this software as well. Their UI is very straight forward and easy to use. They have updated their UI so it does not look old and clunky unlike some of their competitors. Broadbean integrates extremely well into other SaaS solutions in particular Bullhorn ATS. We recently moved away from Bullhorn and now only use Broadbean for a job posting tool (which works very well) and we dearly miss the candidate search functionality.

Cons
Duplicate management is very tough with any resume parser. So many people use so many different styles and formats of resume, catching duplicates becomes very tough. I thought Broadbean could use some enhancement on this front. We are constantly dealing with resume entering our system that are duplicates and causing data integrity issues. If you have a messy database you might consider investing in duplication checks along with a product like Broadbean

Great service for managing Job Adverts

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

Great overall - achieves its purpose with ease, and gives regular reports.

Pros
The fact that it archives adverts for quick and easy editing, as opposed to writing from scratch each time. Also, the fact that you can reach such a large variety of platforms was great

Cons
Interface is pretty bland and outdated - could use a fresher UI. This could also make it a bit easier to use.

In its basic form it seems to do the job

Pros
The ability to post jobs quickly to the paid boards from Bullhorn. If you want to post quickly to Dice, it is a must have as their is no posting integration that is native to Bullhorn

Cons
The way candidates are brought into the system and some past experience we had with fields being auto populated. it may have been fixed, but we just don't use those fields for data

Pros
The applications of system dynamics in this software is very easy! We have learned how to apply system dynamics in school, and it is very easy to learn and implement policies using vensim.

Cons
The fact that students are unable to fully utilize the benefits of Vensim as we had to use the trial version. It would be better if we have gotten a year or two of trial for the full version and use Vensim to its full capabilities!
