Daxtra Feature Reviews

17 reviewers had the following to say about Daxtra's features:

Daxtra will aggregate your job board subscriptions

2018-11-08

It will integrate with many applicant tracking systems and could be the most cost effective option for some businesses.

Pros

It contains all of the main features like saved searches to help you passively and more efficiently actively recruit.

Cons

It is not the best looking product and not the easiest to use as a user or an admin.

Hi Jake!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review DaXtra Search. We do indeed aggregate searches and integrate with virtually every job board out there. It really saves time from having to search each job board individually. And don't forget! You can search over your own database at the same time.

Have you seen our new UI? OI say new, but it's been out more than a year now. You may want to upgrade to the newest version. I think you'll find it much more easy to use and has a better look overall. Check it out! https://info.daxtra.com/blog/2018/05/16/new-daxtra-search-31

Jake, we really appreciate your review and value your feedback! Thank you.

I like the ability to keep our recruiters inside of Bull Horn full time and not have them navigating through multiple websites and potentially have data slip through the cracks.

Good add-on for Bullhorn users

2019-09-18

Pros

Better search than standard Bullhorn search - allows recruiters to search multiple sources with one search string/set of filters.

Cons

Indeed interface is a NICE add-on to the product - good info on the candiates - wish the integration was tighter though (limitation of Indeed not Daxtra).

Thanks for your review, Patrick! DaXtra Search is able to search over multiple online sources, (approved job boards, social networking sites, emails) as well as your local database, all in a single action. No need to search individual job boards, & other social networks, as well as your local ATS, for the data you need. It unifies all sourcing efforts into a single workflow, eliminating the time & effort of resourcing against each source independently. And yes! Saved searches allow you to search again later.
The automated searches, or what we call "Watchdogs," are searches that run nightly & deliver a list of candidates you may have missed since the last time you ran that search to your inbox each morning. These search agents work while you're sleeping to keep funneling the latest results directly to your inbox. These are just 2 of the many time-saving functions in DaXtra Search.For more, see here:

Daxtra search and parsing tools work well but may be a duplicate of other tools you have

2019-07-02

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.

Pros

The resume parsing tool also captures data accurately most of the time, even though the back end interface is a bit clunky/outdated feeling.

Cons

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.

Still working out the kinks

2019-09-17

Our users are about 50/50 on whether it's beneficial or not. We're still in the process of working out the kinks and coming up with a workflow that works for most people.

Pros

Several of our recruiters also like the Watchdog and find it helpful.

Cons

There seem to be some hiccups between Daxtra and both Careerbuilder and LinkedIn that make it easier for us to search CB and LI independently, which defeats the purpose or having Daxtra.

Daxtra is a great tool as long as you understand its capabilities and limitations

2019-09-17

The people at Daxtra are wonderful to work with. We love rep team. They have really gone above and beyond to support us.

Pros

Cons

No fault to our rep but it sounds like Zip Recruiter won't work with Daxtra.

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!

Great Product, but it has some limitations

2019-09-17

Pros

- Able to search multiple job boards - The magnet tool is very helpful!

Cons

- Daxtra doesn't search across ZipRecruiter, this would be very helpful, as most of our employees use ZipRecruiter

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.

Not the Greatest Job Board Integrator

2018-11-01

Pros

The price point is the only benefit to this tool. The price for Daxtra compared to competitors (Broadbean/TextKernel) is less expensive.

Integration issues, Customer Service, User Interface are the top three.

So sorry you've had this negative experience! DaXtra integrates with hundreds of job boards and doesn't have considerable problems, so I'm unclear where you're coming from. As integrations and technologies are complex, it could be a number of things including an outdated system, or a change in the job board itself. I'm very sorry you feel like you've had less than satisfactory customer service as we place a lot of value on that and have some of the best account managers in the industry. Please do reach out again and let's see if we can solve the issues you have. Also, we have an updated user interface. If your system is up to date, you should be able to upgrade to the new UI.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We always appreciate feedback!

DaXtra saves time by searching multiple sources at one time!

Pros

We've made a couple of major placements finding the purple squirrel candidate with DaXtra search.

Cons

There are a LOT of bells and whistles and it can be confusing for our recruiters who aren't entirely technical.

Hi Kat, Thanks for the great review! We're really glad you love DaXtra Search and have had the good fortune of finding those Purple Squirrels out there. Actually, with DaXtra Search, this is quite common. Because of its ability to semantically search, find, rank and deliver the most qualified candidates the purple squirrels are being delivered! As a matter of fact, one firm who was recently considering DaXtra Search, found a purple squirrel during the testing phase. Needless to say, they are now a customer.
Please do reach out to your account manager if you feel additional training on the product is in order. Sometimes a refresher training can go a long way. We'll be happy to help!

Most Sophisticated Search Tool Available!

2019-09-17

Daxtra is the most sophisticated search tool on the market. Make the tool work for you, all the capabilities are there.

Pros

The semantic search abilities are a strong assist to recruiting productivity, speed, and quality.

Cons

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.

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.

Great idea that needs additional development

2019-05-14

That said, the suggestions Daxtra makes for misspelling and synonyms is useful, especially because they can be deleted or others added.

Pros

It could be a real time saver.

Cons

The searches don't really work that well, and because each search platform has different search inputs, one search entry for different platforms does not work that well.

Thank you for taking time to fill out a review on DaXtra. We really value and appreciate your opinion!
By searching, intuitively filtering and sorting data from job boards, online networking sites and your CRM database ? all with a single action, we hope to save you time. This unifies all sourcing efforts into a single workflow, eliminating the time and effort of resourcing against each source independently. We all know that translates into saved money! I'm unclear as to why you ran into a problem with this and can only think that perhaps the ?free trial? wasn't a full functional version of the software.
We have large and small clients who use DaXtra Search on a daily basis and rave about the time-saving capabilities and ease-of-use of the product, with its single action searching abilities.
I'm really glad you enjoyed the use of the predictive keywords in your searches, which helps with the spelling and synonyms. Not only can it do that, but it can also suggest skills you may want to

HI Eric, Thanks for your review. I'm not sure if you're able to elaborate on what you mean by smooth parsing and workflow issues, but we find that our customers generally rave about our parsing abilities and workflow solutions.
DaXtra's parsing abilities are world-class and we're the top in our field of resume parsing. Not to mention that we parse in 40+ languages. Our workflows are a valuable asset to many of the CRMs and ATS systems that we integrate with.

Hi Stu,

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 Review

2019-09-26

Overall, it has not been the best, but the customer service is great, they really try to make it as best as it can be.

Pros

Get results from all job boards at once.

Cons

LinkedIn is not as good as actually LinkedIn - almost makes it null and void honestly. Magnet needs to be able to tell you if the candidate is in you ATS without being prompted.
