    getting rid of legacy in recruiting - focusing on digitizing the recruiting business process

    Reviewed 4 years ago
    Pros

    softfactors suite is tailor-made for today`s challenges: recruiting in a seller-market the best candidates for e.g. industry 4.0 or IoT type of jobs. They digitize the recruiting process to an extend, that a corporation can think over to free-up recruiters and ask the line manager to recruite in a self-service modus

    Cons

    regarding the software nothing comes to my mind actually. From my point of view it might be an issue, that softfactors AG is located in Switzerland and that it is a start-up. Well it is fast growing, but still a start-up
