Great Foundational TS

2017-02-27

With restrictions on budget and having different recruitment models under one roof, the customization of this product was ideal.

Pros

Customization options for the product to meet any need whether for a Staffing model or a single client, easy to add additional sources and statuses, reporting options are great once the platform is set per use of organization, options to attach documents/resume to an individual's profile, and support is a phone call or tutorial video away!

Cons

Is not compatible with all sourcing sites in order to automatically import at this point so can take a time to manually import the select group of candidates to adds to administrative type activities.

Exelare: Functional, User-Friendly, Highly-Customizable, Affordable...all things you want!

2019-07-25

The note taking functionality is easy for documenting phone conversations.

Pros

This is my second company where I have implemented (easily) and used Exelare for candidate recruitment and management.

Cons

I have used it for so long and as mentioned, the support team has been so accomodating when we have asked for a customized report or new feature. They are terrific.

Good value, not easy to use

2017-02-14

But learning the system has been a huge learning curve, much larger than anticipated or promised. The UI looks a little dated too.

Pros

It's very customizable & there is the capability for the end user to edit & change some fields.

Cons

Also the data transfer from our old ATS to this one did not go as smoothly as planned.

Exelare has vastly improved our ability to manage job orders and source and process candidates.

2017-10-17

It has improved the overall efficiency of the agency.

Pros

The Outlook integration makes it easy to add information to the database, be it a new candidate profile or important documents received by email.

Cons

The mobile app is still weak and while the tools to post to online job boards are functional we've found it easier to continue to post directly to the vendors' sites using the customized apply links that let us know which board the candidate applied through and the recruiter assigned.

Amber Wishart

Our business used this for 15 years as an ATS

2019-08-12

We used it as a storage place, not as a database to search out of.

Pros

Completely customizable... The customer support team did well when we had issues.

Cons

While there were updates made, it's almost like it's still ten years behind with the features and user interface.

Lots of functionality

2019-07-26

Exelare creates a single resource where all of our business activity can reside.

Pros

There is a lot you can do with this ATS: drop boxes, mass emails, automated job postings, great search features. The Static Views are great to make folders of candidates or contacts. You can attach extra documents to any record.

Cons

The interface is a bit clunky.

Not glamorous but very productive!

2019-08-14

We are a 5 person, boutique recruiting firm that specializes in the insurance industry.

Pros

We came from Bullhorn, which has a great user interface but is not easy or cheap to customize (unless you have a lot of users).

Cons

There is not much we don't like about the product. Most things that we come up with, they are able to fix.

Returning customer - great experience with Exelare

2017-10-17

Sales Support ease in learning Good management of information Lots of details, added through parsing techniques, rather than manual entry...constantly evolving

Pros

Adaptable, ease of function and ease of learning. Since joining, we have had a great experience, through sales,support, etc. Our concerns and needs are heard and met with solutions or edits that meet our needs, and developed on a quick turnaround. Training is on demand, and always met, for my growing team

Cons

Some things are still manual, and need to be edited and updated. Initial set up seems to be more of an issue more recently.

Exelare

2019-07-24

Pros

Like having the ability to search and post to multiple job boards at one time. Never any downtime and the app is very quick.

Cons

It would be great if there was more user customization ability (hiding/renaming/editing certain fields, more customized reporting, etc.)

Fantastic CRM!

2016-05-06

Pros

Every CRM has its strengths and weaknesses, but overall Exelare provides all of the functionality I need to perform at a high-level as a technology recruiter. I've compared it to quite a few others out there and although some solutions have some bells and whistles that look cool, as recruiters we tend to do the same things day-in and day-out and frankly Exelare just seems to perform most of these functions simpler and more reliably than most other CRM's.

Cons

If I were giving this review six months ago I would have said that their Outlook integration needs to be improved as well as the process for parsing information scraped from a LinkedIn profile, but both are currently being addressed with production releases happening in the next few weeks (I've seen the beta for one of them), so they've been very aggressive about responding to their users' chief complaints.

Recommendations to others considering Exelare

There are competitive CRM's out there that offer some bells and whistles that Exelare doesn't have, but I would encourage you to think through what you do on a daily basis as a recruiter and match that up with the solution that's going to make that as easy as possible. That's what I did and the conclusion I came to is that none of the other products facilitated my daily tasks as well as Exelare did.

Good lower price option for an ATS and a smaller company, but I prefer Bullhorn

2019-08-06

Pros

Easy to use and follow interface, easy to submit candidates, alerts were easy to use, workflow made sense, and it was easy to customize searches and save them for future use

Cons

Didn't have a lot of bells and whistles, and did not easily integrate with other platforms.

to always write detailed information for each conversation you have with a candidate for furute conversations. I have found many times that a candidate's story ir excuses change but if you keep detailed records, you can over come those right away.
