Cons
It is difficult to see something negative to this software, it has a payment plan and depending its use can become expensive. I think this application should be developed in more languages.

Einfaches Handling - für Benutzer super!

Reviewed 7 months ago

Insgesamt ein tolles und einfacher System mit vielen hilfreichen Funktionen.

Pros

Die Software ist sehr benutzerfreundlich gestaltet und intuitiv bedienbar. Daher für jeden Benutzer schnell zu verstehen.

Cons

Neue Funktionen sind meist zu Beginn noch nicht vollständig durchdacht und durch fehlende Features für große Unternehmen wie uns (ca. 300 User) leider zunächst nicht nutzbar.

Vielfältiges und intuitives Recruitingsystem mit einem sehr guten Support

Reviewed 7 months ago

Im Großen und Ganzen sind wir mit Softgarden sehr zufrieden. Natürlich gibt es noch die ein oder andere Funktion, die wir noch an unsere Bedürfnisse anpassen müssen, aber daran wird gearbeitet und die Vorteile überwiegen dennoch.

Pros

Wie im Titel erwähnt, muss vor allem der Support positiv erwähnt werden. Sowohl der persönliche Ansprechpartner als auch die Mitarbeiter/-innen, die den Support-Chat betreuen, geben alles, eine individuelle Lösung zu finden und nehmen jeden noch so speziellen Wunsch entgegen. Zudem ist Softgarden ein übersichtliches, intuitives und stark individualisierbares Recruitingsystem, das sowohl für Recruiter/-innen...

Cons

Bei manchen Funktionen fehlt die HR-Prozess-Perspektive bzw. einige Prozessschritte sind theoretisch und aus Sicht der Softwareentwickung gut durchdacht, aber in der Praxis für unsere Arbeitsprozesse, die auf das High-Volume-Recruiting ausgelegt sind, weniger praktikabel. Das Tracking und Reporting von Stellenbörsen ist noch ausbaufähig - das liegt aber nicht ausschließlich an Softgarden, sondern auch an den angebundenen Stellenbörsen, die ihre Daten nicht an Softgarden übermitteln.

Great Success

Reviewed 3 months ago

The main benefits of implementation for the organisation were/are GDPR compliant management of applicant data, more sophisticated recruitment data analytics, an enhanced candidate experience and efficiency gains in the process overall. In terms of the features and functionalities offered by the software it is advisable to check in advance to what extent specific features and functionalities considered critical for the hiring organisation are already available and/or can be added and/or further customized, to be in line with internal processes highly dependant on the organisational context and as such more individual.

Pros

The software is very user-friendly and intuitive as confirmed by hiring managers and other colleagues involved in selection processes in the organisation after 6+ months of introduction and roll-out (very popular features are in particular internal requests for approval of new requisitions and the interview scorecard to facilitate assessment of candidacies). The implementation was a very smooth process thanks also to the excellent customer support at Softgarden. Feedback to follow-up questions is always very quick and helpful and requests for customization are also considered and (where possible) realized.

Cons

The Softgarden Shop including the recruitment advertisement channels with a direct interface could be expanded to include more recruitment advertisement channels especially if these are channels highly relevant and frequently used by the hiring organisation (as also depending on the market operating in, in terms of both profiles hired for and desired reach both nationally and internationally). The integration with LinkedIn as very important recruitment channel for many organisations could be more seamless and it is understood that updates here will be available soon.

hervorragendes Tool

Reviewed 8 months ago

Mit diesem einfachen Handling der Software ist die dezentrale Organisation des Recruiting optimal gelöst. Wir werden dank der neuen Karriereseite deutlich professioneller in der Außenwirkung und intern schneller, vernetzter und effizienter in der Bearbeitung der Bewerbungen.

Pros

Für Unternehmen unserer Größe gibt es kein Tool derzeit, dass mehr Features und Leistungen bieten kann.

Cons

Gerade die größeren Mittelständler haben in der Regel eine Kostenstellen-Struktur o.ä.. Wir wünschen uns die Abbildbarkeit einer solchen Struktur. Und die Personalisierbarkeit von Berichten und Tags.
