Daxtra has been a game changer for me and my firm. Streamlined candidate searches, complete integration with our ATS, and overwhelming support and guidance from the Daxtra team has made our interaction with their product a true win!!!
I like Daxtra's ability to combine searches from different engines and make for one stop shopping with my job board subscriptions.
It's not free. Also, does not work well with LinkedIn
Thanks so much for taking the time to review DaXtra. We really appreciate the feedback and the glowing review!
Regarding LinkedIn, they are very prideful of the experience they create for their candidates and in turn restrict info through 3rd party search engines, like DaXtra and others. They want all communication between a recruiter and candidate to be housed directly on LinkedIn. DaXtra's integration is helpful because it allows for the recruiter to see how that candidate ranks against others and because you're on Bullhorn, they can then use the "find in Bullhorn," to do a quick de-dupe based on first and last name to see if that individual is already in your database. If so, you can quickly contact that person. If not, you have the hyperlink that takes you right to their LinkedIn profile.
Another solution to that issue is Daxtra Magnet, a Google Chrome Plug-in, that allows the recruiter to seamlessly load the candidates into your Bullhorn environment.

Daxtra was useful for automatically parsing candidate resumes and job applications into our database application (Bullhorn) and for searching our database to find qualified candidates for jobs we were trying to fill on behalf of our clients.
The Daxtra search tool for Bullhorn ATS/CRM is comprehensive and returns good results for most searches. The resume parsing tool also captures data accurately most of the time, even though the back end interface is a bit clunky/outdated feeling.
Changes to the Daxtra resume parsing tool meant job applications were not being assigned to the correct job record in the Bullhorn database. The system (last used in October 2018) required data to be transmitted to Daxtra in a fairly specific way for it to parse accurately, which meant a fair bit of manual configuration on our end.
Thanks so much for your message Sheena. We'd love to reconnect with you and show you some of our new features from the past year, including a new Admin interface so our 'behind the scenes' is as modern and clean as our user interface! We appreciate you being a great DaXtra partner and for your generous feedback.

- Able to search multiple job boards - The magnet tool is very helpful!
- Daxtra doesn't search across ZipRecruiter, this would be very helpful, as most of our employees use ZipRecruiter. - You are not able to mass text and email people directly with Daxtra, like you can with other job boards.
Hi Emanuela we're pleased to hear you find the tool easy to use. Although, we wish we could have integrations with every job board out there it is up to the job board to allow us to build the integration. Unfortunately, as of now, ZipRecruiter isn't open to it. We will continue to work with them to see the benefits of having it available to their customers and encourage you to do so as well. In addition, Daxtra has never directly had the functionality to mass email or text from within the tool. Every ATS allows for varying capabilities and Microsoft Dynamics has always been a bit more limited. As discussed, we are more than willing to add the ability to load candidates to a tearsheet within Microsoft Dynamics and then from there you would be able to bulk text, email, call, etc. This is something we have available out of the box with other ATS but for Microsoft Dynamics we would need to build this out via a Change Request. I hope this addresses some of your concerns.

The people at Daxtra are wonderful to work with. We love rep team. They have really gone above and beyond to support us.
quickly searches across your company CRM/database and job boards that you have licenses with. works best with careerbuilder, dice and linkedin Recruiter
does not work with indeed because indeed does not share contact information (NOT the fault of Daxtra, indeed is protective of their candidates). ALSO they do NOT have a relationship with ZipRecruiter. No fault to our rep but it sounds like Zip Recruiter won't work with Daxtra. Perhaps Daxtra could find ways to incentive Zip Recruiter to partner.
Happy to hear you find the tool easy to use when searching over your local database of candidates & the job boards you are leveraging. We strive to make the recruiters lives easier by being able to source over your local database and all job boards we have integrations with in one spot. That said, every job board integration is setup differently as decided by the job board. Both LinkedIn and Indeed are limited by design as they want the experience & communication to be housed via their websites directly, making it a challenge as we are unable to load these candidates into RemX (Microsoft Dynamics) via Daxtra. We wish we could have integrations with every job board out there but we are at their mercy some choose not to allow a 3rd party integration. Currently, ZipRecruiter falls in that category. We continue to push on our end to encourage them to allow us to do so and encourage you to do so as well. Thanks for taking time out of your day for this review and feedback!

Daxtra is the most sophisticated search tool on the market. Make the tool work for you, all the capabilities are there.
Daxtra Search will search your database and other job boards in one stop. The semantic search abilities are a strong assist to recruiting productivity, speed, and quality. In comparison to our previous ATS search features, Daxtra Search is able to render quality search results which the ATS could not. The sales process and onboarding of the tool went smoothly by having an ATS and Technology expert on each side of the project.
There is no least liked feature. A challenge may be the overall adoption from all staff members which is dependent on the staff's technical abilities and willingness to accept change. A dedicated training resource is provided by Daxtra to help facilitate.
At DaXtra we do pride ourselves with quality search results. Along with that, speed and increasing productivity all add to the fact that without a doubt, you can increase your company's ROI by using our products!
Thanks for recognizing our excellent training, too. When investing in new software the onboarding process can sometimes be a challenge. We understand this, so one of our main concerns is to make sure onboarding goes as smooth as possible. Training is a big part of that, but sometimes, there needs to be a second wave of training as a follow up or to help with a flux of new recruiters. We have an excellent team of dedicated account managers who will help you through the training process and are available for any necessary additional training.
