Accessibility is amazing. The mobile app makes it so easy to access my data from anywhere.

Cons

I have not come across anything that I dislike about the product so far. I'm pretty sure I won't in the future either. I'm perfectly happy with the product.

Zoho Recruit

2016-10-20

Very simple and easy to configure, yet highly customizable. No long term commitment.

Pros

However, there is more third party app integration with Zoho under the standard plan whereas Bullhorn requires a premium package.

Cons

If you are a larger agency requiring serious customization or integration, you may need to consider a more robust, stand alone application.

2016-10-14

We are evaluating ATS software and so far this product matches or beats the others and at half the cost. It works with many of the social media companies and included the hosting of a company jobs website.

Pros

Data importing and exporting.

Cons

Reporting could be enhanced.

Very customizable but unreliable.

2016-10-14

Zoho is a very customizable and easy to use tool, a kind of "LEGO" of recruitment softwares, what allow to create a very customizable software, automizing e-mails, reports, job posts and so on.

Pros

Very customizable and easy to use tool, a kind of "LEGO" of recruitment softwares, what allow to create a very customizable software, automizing e-mails, reports, job posts and so on

Cons

Their "gaps" are similar to almost every Indian IT company, they improvise a lot, implement new things (sometimes brilliant ones) but without testing, customer service sometimes works sometimes not (I mean basic stuffs like attempt telephone)...

Quality System That Does The Job

2016-11-02

We are a recent startup Recruitment Company that selected Zoho for ATS and CRM purposes after reviewing numerous other software options.

Pros

- Customisation Options in terms of Field/Layout Management - CV Parsing - App - Smart Device App is really nice - Searching / Reporting Capabilities - Standard functionality is better than others in the market

Cons

- Lack of Radius Search from a Candidate perspective which isn't ideal when searching for candidates near a certain location - Lack of Office365 Outlook Integration (this is on the roadmap however isn't ideal) - Skilling / Capabilities is my largest bugbear as it isn't as intuitive as other options from a recruitment perspective - Some rigid functionality where you can't remove and edit certain fields

Recommendations to others considering Zoho Recruit

If you're a recruiter who is happy to put some leg work in with setting up the system for your needs than it will be the product for you however if you're not as tech savvy and need the features above from the off, you may face some frustrations. However, if you have a well established market, know your niche and just need something to host profiles and do basic searches then it will do the trick.

It makes sense for Startups/medium-sized companies

2019-05-30

I recommend it, specially for start-ups where there are 2-3 people max. taking care of recruitment proccesses.

Pros

Like the other products from Zoho, is easy to learn, has a lot of customizable features and very cost-effective.

Cons

It lacks the feature of adding employee referrals which makes us use a spreadsheet for it, which is not an example of efficiency.

Best Tool Ever

2017-05-29

it is simply awesome, lots of features, integration with my favorite tools in zoho and external applications as well, fancy reporting, just what i needed.

Pros

Integration is at hand, very easy to use and intuitive, one click access once you are in your zoho account, email inbox right in the tool.

Cons

Probably more options to brand the tool acording to the corporate image would be great, not much customization right now

I am now able to track and manage applicants, as well as staffing pipelines.

Zoho Recruit is light, but the price is such a steal that the product is definitely worthwhile.

2018-07-24

It was the right tool for us, an information repository basically, a stepping stone until our company needed a real CRM that could track activity.

Pros

It is highly customizable, probably the rarest trait among low-cost softwares.

Cons

The customer service is so poor it might as well be non-existent.
