I love Crelate, use it on an hourly basis.
I love how customizable it is. It helps me manage both the candidate and client facing side of the business and customize almost any pipeline and report.
Since there are so many different facets, it took a bit longer to get up to speed on the product, but once I did, its very user intuitive. Also, the mobile app needs more work to get it to where the desktop product is.

Crelate has added to our productivity. Their customer service is best in class, and I don’t know how we recruited without this platform. We are a small boutique firm and I can tell you any small firm should definitely use this product. They will treat you with respect and help ensure their product works for you. That was not the experience we had with other large and well known recruiting software. You will not regret using Crelate!
Customer service is exceptional. Additionally product very easy to use with a great customer interface. Wonderful interface with job boards and other recruiting platforms.
Sometimes can’t use wildcards in certain fields for searches. Also new company files are created with parsed resumes which leads to messy/invalid company files.

No benefits over previous CRM. Customer service was an EXTREME challenge. Emails go unanswered. Overall, I would not choose Crelate again. As we grow, we will actively look to leave.
Software helps organize large amounts of data
Many items are not intuitive. WAY too many glitches. MANY items not as sold to us. Struggled getting set up. Customer service is really poor. Only works through desktop, doesn't work on iPad or phone, so worthless on the go. Continuous review of contacts is needed to catch errors.
Hi Brian -
I'm Samantha from Crelate. Thanks for the feedback! It helps make us better. I'm happy to inform you that we recently launched a Crelate Connector mobile recruiting app that allows for:
1. Client and candidate engagement (calling, emailing, and texting)
2. Access to your entire recruiting database on the go
3. Scheduling of activities with candidates such as follow-ups, interviews, and phone screens
4. Viewing and modifying candidate applications, contacts, job opportunities, resumes, and notes associated to each account record
We work really hard to be the most supportive ATS and I'm sorry if that wasn't your experience. We'd love to redeem ourselves! Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com with your questions/challenges and we'll be happy to help you!

Overall, good experience. DOes more than most ATS. Lots of new features, but they are add-on priced.
Great for applicant tracking. Easy to publish jobs, and job history
the reminders are difficult to use. Lacks comprehensive business development CRM functionality .

Overall, Crelate is also a good ATS. This is good for not a full cycle recruiting
I like the simplicity of this Applicant Tracking System. Not the kind of ATS on mainstream but is worth your money. It is user-friendly. There is room for errors, you can delete/change the tagging anytime you want. Crelate Talent also has a feature when you post your job, it will be posted on other different job boards like ZipRecruiter, Indeed, etc. When you post your jobs, you can automatically post your job on these platforms too.
Lately, they are having maintenance that makes the software really slow. Though upgrades is for the better but still affects the productivity of recruiters.

The most effective way for recruiters to find great talent is by forming deep relationships. Crelate Talent is a web-based platform that aids in this process, providing recruitment agencies with a way to keep in touch with talent, quickly access important records, and reach out with follow-up communication when the time is right.
By integrating an applicant tracking solution into their workflows, recruiters are better equipped to keep employment records updated and more easily able to search through databases for potential hires. Crelate Talent has developed an integrated, streamlined SaaS applicant tracking system (ATS) with talent pipelining, which comes standard with complete onboarding, training, and support services for recruitment agencies.
Crelate Talent is a cloud-based applicant tracking system that offers a simplified way for recruiters to connect with top talent. Using Crelate Talent’s tools, recruiters are able to create applicant databases, which they can mine through text searches and relational searches find candidates with specific qualifications, notes, or professional histories.
Crelate Talent also provides recruiters with the ability to post to job boards, integrate with job portals through their websites, and automatically add job candidates to searches when they apply. Powerful workflow features make it possible for recruiters to design processes that are as simple or complex as they need. Because Crelate Talent is cloud-based, the entire system can be accessed from any computer, including mobile iPads and iPhones.
Designed specifically for recruiters, Crelate Talent customers are most commonly one to 10-seat boutique recruiting agencies. These are typically agencies that handle executive search, retained search, and other focused recruitment opportunities, as opposed to staffing agencies. Crelate supports internal and corporate recruiters as well, with about 30% of the customers falling in this category.
Recruiters can use Crelate Talent to post specific job opportunities. These postings can then be added to popular online job boards or integrated into the job portal on a company’s own business website.
To post a new job opportunity, create a listing using Crelate Talent’s tools. Include the name of the employer and as much information about the job opportunity as possible. Including tags is a helpful way to keep multiple jobs organized. As applicants start streaming in, you can create a short list of the best talent.
Every piece of information about a prospect is located in one place in Crelate Talent, which prevents recruiters from having to search for misplaced paperwork or notes. Each applicant has his or her own profile page. This is the page where recruiters are encouraged to add notes and tags. A complete activity stream also shows the candidate’s current status at all times.
And searching for your candidates in Crelate is lightning fast – searching and scanning 50,000 resumes in under a second fast. How does it do it? With advanced Boolean queries (and, or, not…), tagging and proximity, helping to make sure your eyes on look at viable candidates.
Not only does it manage your client relationships, Crelate Talent allows you to manage the internal ones too. Track what’s important to your agency by enabling customized activity types. You can pin important notes to the top of a contact profile to ensure everyone on your team is privy to the relevant information. When you mention another record in your notes, the two contacts are automatically linked within the Crelate Talent system. It also includes features such as record ownership and the activity stream, which lets you easily see who is doing what across clients, jobs and candidates, without risking that you’ll step on each other’s toes.
Crelate Talent organizes applicants into colorful tiles, which makes visualization a snap. Users can drag-and-drop applicant tiles throughout the hiring workflow, easily keeping track of which candidates have been interviewed and which have been placed.
Design your visualization board based on your existing workflows, changing the size, grouping, and sorting of tiles as frequently as you need. Crelate Talent’s visualization tools enable you to see the latest status of every applicant in the system without clicking through multiple pages to do so.
Keep detailed notes based on all the interactions that your agency has had with professional contacts. Crelate Talent’s tools keep track of any notes, along with the number of phone calls you’ve had with each contact.
Tag contacts to categorize professionals based on industry or skill level. You can also attach documents—including resumes and cover letters—to Contacts, Jobs, and Companies. Crelate Talent will automatically detect duplicate contacts, and it will merge contacts on an as-needed basis.
Crelate Talent is a SaaS application, and it is completely connected through mobile. Recruiters with iPhones and iPads can access their contact networks from their mobile devices, instantly searching through contact records and viewing upcoming tasks. The mobile interface also enables users to track activities and view candidate resumes, which is useful when meetings are being conducted outside of the office.
Crelate Talent offers email integration, with the ability to send, receive, and parse emails through the web-based platform. Additionally, users have the ability to export data to Excel, along with the option to post jobs directly to job boards.
Base pricing for Crelate Talent is $60, $70, and $90 per user, per month, depending on the tier and the features that an agency needs. Crelate Talent offers a discount for annual agreements ($45, $55 and $75 respectively). For deals over 10 seats and nonprofit groups, Crelate Talent has additional discounts, as well. Data migration and conversions are free or deeply discounted during Crelate Talent’s “Early Adopter” program. The company is also offering custom pricing for special needs.
