Blog Thumbnails Umbraco (8)


Welcome to our comprehensive comparison of two leading recruitment platforms: Vincere and JobAdder.

As professionals in the recruitment industry, choosing the right platform isn't just a technical decision, it's a strategic one. The right platform should be more than just a tool; it should be a partner in your success, understanding your unique challenges and needs, and providing solutions that drive your business forward.

Hailing from Sydney, Australia, JobAdder has made a name for itself as a reliable cloud-based ATS and CRM platform. With its user-friendly interface and an array of integrations, it has become a preferred choice for startups and smaller agencies looking for a convenient, all-in-one solution.

On the other hand, there's Vincere (us), the Recruitment Operating System designed for recruitment and staffing agencies worldwide. We're not just a software, we're a strategic ally. Equipped with advanced analytics, AI capabilities, and a comprehensive suite of features, that will equip you with the insights and tools you need to scale. 

In this blog post, we'll conduct an in-depth comparison of these two platforms. We'll scrutinize the features, assess the pros and cons, and ultimately provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision.

So, whether you're looking to switch platforms, or you're new to the recruitment software market, we're here to shed light on your best options. Let's explore together.

What is JobAdder? 

JobAdder is a cloud based ATS and CRM platform that provides a host of tools, featuring a simple user-interface and custom workflows to help you streamline the recruitment process.  

Founded in 2007 in Sydney, Australia, JobAdder has since expanded to serve clients in multiple regions. They focus strongly on their marketplace presence, with an ever-growing list of integrations, making it a great choice for start-ups and smaller-sized agencies.  

JobAdder: The Benefits

Strong Marketplace Play  

JobAdder is built in with hundreds of job boards and third-party integrations, including LinkedIn, Indeed and Xero, with the aim to plug in those feature gaps for a more end-to-end talent management solution. 

When it comes to integrations, it’s easy to get disillusioned by all the shiny new features and tools that are offered - a bit like a kid in a candy store. 

You might convince yourself that the perfect combination of add-ons and APIs will magically create you the ultimate recruitment platform.  

So, before you fall into an integration rabbit hole, it’s important to take a good look at your CRM and ask yourself if these third-party tools are key features a recruitment software should already have?  

Integrations are great for filling in those feature gaps, but the investment to understand, maintain and work with API customizations can leave your consultants spending their day-to-day babysitting tools instead of focusing on what really matters.  

JobAdder's marketplace play makes them a strong contender for smaller-sized agencies who are looking for an out-of-the-box solution, for you to choose as many partners from the Marketplace as your heart desires. 

But a little bit of advice: consider the depths of the integrations and ask the right questions to make sure they do what they say on the tin. 

Flexible Plans  

JobAdder offers flexible pricing on services including migration, implementation, and support, with customizations that align with agencies who are looking for a more tailored solution.  

If ever you need to scale up or down, you can adapt your plan as your needs change overtime.   

A system that’s built for you sounds great, right?  

Any issues, they’ll also offer the technical support and services to help you manage your system effectively…but at a premium.  

So, when picking out the parts for your shiny new toy, be sure to read the fine print.  

Otherwise, you put yourself at risk of paying an exorbitant amount for all the additional customization and ongoing support required to make sure your system runs smoothly. 

You don’t want to get caught in a trap of hidden fees and unknown costs.  

So, ask yourself this, as a recruitment business owner, is flexibility a priority for you and your agency?   

No Lock-in contracts 

JobAdder offers the flexibility to pay on a month-by-month basis.  

No lock-in contract means freedom to test and try, if JobAdder isn’t for you c'est la vie. 

Just be aware, rolling contracts can be unpredictable for both parties. Your T&Cs are subject to change, and with the additional costs of add-ons, integrations, support, and services, who knows how much it’ll cost. 

So, as a recruitment business owner, ask yourself this.  

Is the option to pull-out a priority for you and your agency?  

And with the time and money you’ve invested time into building the perfect recruitment solution, are you willing to drop it all and go through another migration?
