Pros

I like the simplicity of the design. I am still in the early implementation phase, but I think this will be a great long-term solution for the Foundation.
The support staff is very responsive and helpful whenever I cannot figure out how to do something within the system on my own. Our users have given great feedback on the ease of use as well.
The WizeHive Team is thoughtful, intentional, and focused on excellence in their product and their customer relationships.

Pros

Now I am very comfortable resolving issues through e-mail because SmarterSelect's customer service is that good. I highly recommend both the product and the people behind it.
I've used this for 5 years and the experience has been excellent. Unlike other programs, the price is terrific for the quality of the program and ease of use.
We really like to use smarter select, its very easy to maneuver for all stakeholders involved in our process. There is always room for growth but overall we are able to accomplish what we need.

Cons

Emails usually end up in spam folders. You can't duplicate applications or move them to the next year's cycle which is frustrating if you've deferred an applicant.
It is difficult to find a negative aspect to this software.
The only thing that I dislike right now is that I'm not able to pull email delivery reports on auto-emails that are set up based on folder movements.

Cons

My only slight criticism would be that the evaluator questions can only be placed mid-application, not in their own separate form.
Whenever I have an issue with the platform, or unsure about the limitations of a feature I find it difficult to contact customer service or a specialist.
I dislike having to receive an email in order to get a report. It's just one more step especially when we are running over 80 reports.
