What our customers have to say

 “It’s not really free when you consider the time added to your hiring process and the impact on the quality of hire we are able to make. An ATS that is free or very low cost typically does not offer enough value to justify charging for.”

“Getting a large volume of low quality applicants without any tooling or automation to screen them out wastes the time of the hiring team.”
