Pros

It is user-friendly, the display is great, there is a lot of help built into the software, the search features are strong, sending e-campaigns is easy, customer service gets back to you quickly.
Robust functionality, very responsive, helpful, and knowledgable support team, leadership team focused on constant improvement and maintaining great value for cost.
It is intuitive and easy to use. It has all the functionality of a large CRM in a great software that is affordable.

Pros

The ability to set up proactive communication with the candidates has ensured a seamless alignment with candidates which has improved our connect and engagement significantly.
The backend support (Customer support) is very responsive, the backend developer resolve issue very actively and they are doing great and making this ATS more efficient.
Bulk upload feature is a blessing as the tool can parse PDFs and populate profiles automatically. We love the integration capabilities and it was a breeze to add the job listings to our website.

Cons

Terrible consistency , terrible reports , and defensive tech support reps.
It doesn't seem I can have both sort features at the same time. If there is, I missed it.
I don't like the newest changes that we had no choice about. I prefer the previous version.

Cons

I was hired on to provide recruiting backup, and when I covered for our recruiter one holiday last fall, I was shocked and horrified at the chaos of trying to manage everything via email.
Of course, NO ONE will CALL me even after reading this review - I bet you 10,000 emails they won't even bother. You have been warned - do not buy this ATS.
The review process is a bit confusing. There is a quick review which is apparently different than a regular review.

Candidates Galore

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

This system really funneled in the candidates - loved the color functions that show you where your candidates were in the recruiting to hire process.

Cons

Did not like how it scrubbed - we missed a few good candidates because it scrubbed too much from resumes.

Needs from CATS

Reviewed 10 years ago

Its great for my direct hire needs, and account management. I am building up my consulting busines and would love the time card application with cats so my consultants can electronically log their weekly hours right into the system

Pros

Outlook, FF and word plugins are so key... New clean look is amazing...maybe no so white...

Cons

Would love to see out calendar integration with CATS calendar Need my clients to log in would like a time card system with in CATS for consultants to log in their weekly time cards

CATSone is better than most for less. Email sync issue, and reports are innacurate

Reviewed 6 years ago

CATSone is a great product and we recommend for anyone needing a applicat tracking system. its customizable to an extent. Fields are linked so you can't mess up data. Its good if you use it for CRM. Reports are odd, and email sync feature works 50% of the time. (adding emails to contacts in CATS with matching records)

Pros

Easy interface, great application site wizard , and great job site , built in, , customization of fields with restrictions (so you don't mess it up) . Status, and custom status available. Map custom status's to 'mapped' status. No cloud storage fees for resumes, or files that get attached to applicant / candidate records. API is useful but not without faults. Good custom reports per user. Google...

Cons

Hired applicants are 1 to 1. Hired Applicant can only work in 1 location. It's just not set up for 1 applicant in many locations. Non hired applicants can apply to multiple places, just not work in multiple locations. Its rare you need to hire one person in multiple locations. Via API you could achieve 1 to many locations via API and custom fields. But it's not gonna be easy. NO reports...
