Crelate Talent - by a recruiter

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

I can track jobs, candidate progress, status, etc, very very easily The customer service is great. A bit slow - no one is there when you call - but they call you back, are very friendly and very thorough

Pros
1. Implementation consists....of a few minutes of work with the support team to get going 2. They can do a data conversion fairly quickly. 3. Learning to get started in it in is fast and intuitive. Then, as you learn more about it and figure out how to do things better, you can change what you do - and your prior work is not completely messed up! 4. Integration with my company website and with job boards is simply fantastic

Cons
Data conversion is expensive - but, I guess, so is everyones....

I couldn't be more happy with the transition to Crelate from our previous product. Their team truly understands the problems we are trying to solve and is extremely responsive. Their feature set continues to increase rapidly and is always very relevant.

Pros
Several items: - ease of configuration and customization - profile parsing from LinkedIn - job board management / website integration - email sync and candidate communication management - analytics - speed and relevance of new feature release - extensive help resources, training videos, etc.

Cons
- exporting data is not straightforward and requires additional vendor developer cost -

Pros
It is very simple and user friendly, yet has advanced features at the same time.

I wish there was an easier way for us to report how much is being made for us on our contract to hire side. If there is a way to better report it or calculate it in the system I would love to know / get some training on it.

Lack luster. It get the job done most of the time, but would like to see a more robust product offering and user friendly UI.

Pros
Quick and easy to deploy compared to competitors in the market. Easier to administer than similar products.

Cons
Product support is lacking. Very difficult to get the support when you need it, and there is limited training information available. There pricing is on the high side for the level of product you get. The UI feels and looks very dated and is not as intuitive as some of their direct competitors.

on a scale of 1/10 it was an 11. We are a small recruiting firm and I felt like they cared about your team and our success. It was also apparent that Crelate cares about their employees and sets them up for success. As a recruiter I refuse to set a person up for failure.

Pros
When I logged on for the trial I IMMEDIATELY noticed it was exponentially faster than Bullhorn. I also experienced how easy it was to use and knew we had to make the switch.

Cons
There really isn't anything I can think of that Crelate's recent update did not address.

GetApp Analysis

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.


What is Crelate?

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.


Who is Crelate For?

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.


Main Features

Post Jobs

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.

Manage Relationships with 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.

Visualize Applicants

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.

Track Interactions With Contacts

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.

Connect Through the Mobile Interface

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.


Integrations

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.


Pricing

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.


Bottom Line

  • Integrated SaaS applicant tracking system

  • Provides recruiters with ways to keep in touch with talent

  • Implement applicant tracking and talent pipelines
