WHAT SHOULD YOU CONSIDER WHILE EVALUATING A RECRUITMENT SOFTWARE?
There are some very important factors that you should consider when evaluating a recruitment software. However following are some of the basic factors that we tend to overlook:
TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP
Choose a software that you can own with a onetime capital investment. Most software vendors sell you the product at a low cost but they keep on charging you as and when you add users.
Analyze if the software will be able to scale as you grow before you choose the software. Will it be able to work as smoothly with 10,000 resumes as it works for 100 resumes?
Choose a software that you can configure to follow your processes. You might not have set processes today but you might want to set-up processes two years down the line.
Select a software which has an easy user interface. You can leverage a software to your advantage when the end users or the recruiters can handle the software easily. In most of the cases user do not adopt the software for its complex interface and lengthy training procedures.
Make sure that you r software is accessible from anywhere at any time because that eases it up for your senior executives.
RETURN ON INVESTMENT
Invest in a software that earns you considerable returns in terms of organizational efficiency, recruiter’s productivity, portal costs and your professional image.
Most importantly we can all make mistakes while choosing a software but make user that you choose a vendor who is confident enough to take his product back in case you are not satisfied.
