ClearCompany Features In Depth

Applicant Tracking

ClearCompany started out as an applicant tracking system and, over the years, has added new solutions and partnered with other vendors to become the end-to-end talent management software it is today. ClearCompany’s applicant tracking system carries functionalities that include one-click background checks, mobile application portals that are completely brandable, social sharing tools and career sites, automated posting, job board management, video interviewing, and hundreds of automatic, real-time reporting options.

Candidates can submit their applications via a mobile-optimized platform that’s available on their chosen device, be it a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. ClearCompany allows HR professionals to spend less time screening submitted applications through knockout questions and predefined multi-staged processes to find the perfect candidate. Assessments from a library of more than 500 assessment tests from leading publishers can be included in the application process.

Candidate Sourcing

ClearCompany is equipped with a candidate sourcing tool that grants recruiters access to more than 160 million social talent profiles. This reduces the time spent looking for applicants matching your ideal candidate profile, as well as the average cost per hire. Integration between applicant tracking and candidate sourcing eliminates data redundancies, as information flows directly between the two.

The app’s candidate sourcing functionality enables the recruiting department to create deeper talent pipelines that they can readily reuse for the next hiring cycle. You can search the applicant database by skill, job title, or any keyword you deem appropriate. Candidate profiles can be shared with team members or added to requisitions for follow-up.

Paperless Onboarding

ClearCompany’s paperless onboarding system allows customers to digitize their process with online packets by transforming their current onboarding workflow into a customized digital version. The software also carries a library of numerous onboarding forms that you can use out of the box.

A packet can be sent to a new hire in just a few clicks, and individual approvers can be assigned for each form, enabling different managers or departments to sign off a completed form. Automated reminders can be set up to notify new hires and approvers of forms or tasks requiring their attention. To eliminate double data entry, ClearCompany uses smart forms with pre-filled data from previously entered information. Data sources include the new hire’s employment application, resume, and other relevant forms.

Performance Management

ClearCompany’s performance management feature can accommodate an unlimited number of peer or 360-degree reviews. Automated reminders are sent to employees who haven’t yet completed their reviews, and customizable reporting tools allow managers to track individual and team progress against benchmarks, and visually pinpoint top performers.

You can create as many review forms as you need, and even set up custom scoring tables or free-form response sheets. Goals are tracked and updated in real time, and ClearCompany’s social approach to aligning individual goals with the company’s objectives enables employees to share their goals with colleagues, send and receive peer feedback, recognize achievements in real time, and communicate items of high importance.

Goal Setting and Tracking

ClearCompany’s goal setting and tracking functionality allows managers and employees to identify and accomplish the goals that help them succeed and impact the company’s bottom line. Users see and understand how each goal is broken down, who is responsible for certain tasks and projects, and who is on track.

This feature offers companies a clear picture into their teams and the individuals comprising them, including their strengths and weaknesses, allowing managers to effectively allocate their human resources. Data on important company goals are collected and monitored, and employees see how their individual goals fare against company ones.

ClearCompany Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about ClearCompany's features:

James Graser

Really Functional, but has some quirks

2019-03-26

Love that my confusion was eaily handled by their customer support, I felt I had a dedicated relationship that felt more like "consulting services" versus the typical Client/Vendor relationship

Pros

Add in their applicant tracking system as it allows bulk email, Hard and Mobile site integration, as well the one-click background checks save an inordinate amount of fine!

Cons

Their automated reporting ensures that clients maintain full EEO & OFCCP compliances, but also their were literally too many potential reports that could track just about anything.

Streamlined onboarding and better insight for management.

Pros

Dashboards and ability for the employer to more easily see where current new hires are at in the onboarding process.

Great software for tracking applicants and made a lot of our processes easier and more efficient

2018-05-03

It was great to streamline our efficiency and was outstanding as a tool for performance evaluations.

Pros

The best part was that it seemed easy to use for both the recruiter and the applicant. As a user, the calendar interface on the home page was clean and easily managed, which I used a lot.

Cons

I like to create a lot of customizable reports and had trouble doing this without the help of the team.

If you are shopping for an ATS, take a second look at ClearCompany HRM

2016-02-02

Pros

The reporting capability made preparations for our AAP a snap, and helps with last minute requests for data/metrics from Executive Leadership.

Cons

Although we are currently not using the performance management component, I think I could make a case for incorporating this feature as well if it was integrated with a compensation tool for performance and salary planning combined.

ClearCompany Review

2020-12-15

I find the benefits of onboarding is great. again everything is one location, accounting gets a completed packet with nothing missing prior to their first day.

Pros

What I like most about the software is that I have all the information for candidates and employees in one place.

Cons

So I don't like that I don't have an overview in the dashboard of what internal packet items have not been completed.

Danielle Atwood, MBA

Good ATS for companies averaging < 15 open jobs

2020-04-17

We were eager to find a software to help us organize as we were consistently recruiting for at least 15 open jobs at all times.

Pros

Could generate and send offer letter for approval and then to candidate for signature in seconds and without the use of a 3rd party DocuSign type system.

Cons

There were a few times where we found discrepancies on specific job reports vs. the data tracked on the job req's dashboard.

2020-03-11

Pros

Love the reporting aspects to it and makes it easy to track applicants not to mention access to many qualified resumes.

Cons

The software is pricey for a smaller business. You have to pay for additional user seats and sometimes the ATS can have glitches.

Excellent Full Circle Talent Management Software!

2018-01-19

Completed implementation end of November 2017 Rolling it out company-wide, Goals first in December and Performance in January Feedback from employees has been very positive Managers are getting the hang of it Adoption so far has been good

Pros

Only company that was full circle thinking on Talent Management All modules from ATS and Onboarding to Goal Setting and Performance Management Lots of options to customize, different for internal vs. external candidate process Good standard options like notifications Good training by video, or live GREAT implementation support and project timeline GREAT ongoing support, patient, personable, couldn't ask for better!

Cons

A little confusing due to so many custom options Would like to have had a project outline for communicating roll out for the company. I've managed, but lack experience in this area, and as a small company, more guidance in rollout would have been helpful.

ClearCompany ATS and Onboarding Modules

2017-03-10

We bought both the ATS and Onboarding modules.

Pros

Easy to get up and running.

Cons

But two things I am not happy about. The Onboarding module does have some issues with certain tasks using a mobile device, no matter what they tell you.

Great integrated recruiting and tracking tool, but probably more ideal for individual recruiters

2018-04-09

Great tool for individual recruiters. Just needs to be implemented in the right roles within the recruiting sector of the business.

Pros

Fantastic customer service support when setting up the tool for use.

Cons

While it does integrate into other apps, overall it left the impression of working best for individual recruiters who are tracking candidates (through and including on-boarding and performance).

Applicant Tracking System- poised to be great- needs to get past good

2020-05-21

As you open the dashboard the interface is clean and well laid out, the candidate and req screens are easy to navigate for a novice to an expert.

Pros

Great user interface- excellent ease of use for managers that are NOT recruiters; Simplified application process available to candidates; Clean and clear dashboard with all components easily accessible Great flexibility to share between users Text function-- YAY!

Cons

Reporting function is okay at best- too confusing, too cumbersome and stuck between an "old version" and a "new version" Customization options are minimal Customer service is slow to respond

Not the best for recruiting, but great for onboarding

2018-07-19

Pros

Used ClearCompany in a previous role - their onboarding functionality was great for collaborating across teams, leaders, stakeholders.

Cons

Not a big fan of the ATS/Talent Management sides - hard to operate at high-volume/high-touch, and not a huge fan of the performance management.

I have not encountered any huge roadblocks so far, the system is easy to use on both the applicant and recruitment side.

Great promising Features, Terrible Actual Performance

2018-02-08

Very attractive yet stay away until their software works without issues. After doing demos with many other ATSs and much research, I was duped by the number of reviews online by reputable sources.

Pros

UP-To-Date on many (almost all) industry features, such as a robust reporting module and interview scheduling module, even video interview scheduling and recording etc.

Cons

Our uses couldn't login after we bought and implemented the program, because of a glitch that ultimately was resolved by Clearco internally building users for our thousands of employees.
