Kirkland, WA – Crelate, the recruiting software company that enables business to collaboratively manage hiring and opportunity pipelines, today announced that it has been named the “Most Implementable” Applicant Tracking System by G2 Crowd, the world’s leading business software review platform. G2 Crowd created the 2017 Applicant Tracking System Implementation Index to rate ease of implementation of leading applicant tracking systems (ATS) according to feedback from users of each ATS.

“Crelate Talent has been identified as ‘Most Implementable’ in our Fall 2017 Applicant Tracking System (ATS) Implementation Index as a result of their real-user satisfaction ratings for implementation-related review questions.” said Kara Kennedy, research manager, G2 Crowd. “Crelate Talent’s implementation data was highlighted by ‘ease of setup’ and ‘average user adoption,’ each scoring higher than the category average. Additionally, Crelate Talent’s average months to go live was 0.4, compared to the category average 2.9.”

The purpose of applicant tracking systems is to “reduce the time spent reading resumes and screening potential applicants,” so the ease of setup is a critical factor on solution time-to-value and directly impacts a software’s ability to improve hiring efficiency for recruiters.

G2 Crowd rated applicant tracking systems based on a comprehensive set of implementation factors: ease of setup, implementation time, implementation method, user adoption rate, the number of users purchased, and deployment methods.

Additionally, G2 Crowd surveyed satisfaction among different client demographics, which they segmented into small businesses (companies with 50 or fewer employees), mid-market businesses (companies with 51-1,000 employees), and enterprises (companies with over 1,000 employees).

The index includes two metrics that are critical for small businesses: ease of setup and implementation time. Small and mid-market businesses need lightweight solutions that don’t tax the resources they use to drive growth.

To avoid overburdening their time in the process of adopting an applicant tracking system, the process needs to be as quick and painless as possible. So, it’s unsurprising that the software which was easiest and quickest to set up was most popular with small and mid-market businesses.

In the G2 Crowd Implementation Index, Crelate was rated number one in overall ease of implementation, and named, “Most Implementable.”

“Our goal is to make enterprise-quality recruiting software available to everyone. Ranking the overall easiest to implement applicant tracking solution, says we’re executing on that goal.” said Aaron Elder, CEO of Crelate. “I am so proud that Crelate ranked among the top five contenders in all categories. Crelate placed second in ease of setup, barely behind another leading ATS. Typical Crelate implementations are measured in days to a week or two, which is far below the average setup time of about three months. This is true, even if customers need to migrate from another recruiting solution.”

Given the success in the two critical categories for small and mid-market business, it’s easy to understand why Crelate took the top spot in satisfaction among small businesses.

This is good news for Crelate, because the company’s primary customers are small and mid-market professional services, staffing and recruiting agencies. It’s an excellent indication that Crelate’s software is a great fit for expanding firms looking to grow their business by finding top talent for their teams and customers.

In recent months, Crelate has added and enhanced features in the software to improve the workflow and filtering options offered by their system. The overall goal of these improvements is to make the visualization in the Crelate applicant tracking system dynamic and efficient for day-to-day use.

The Crelate team has been working to bring the power of enterprise software to firms of all sizes. Creating a unified Recruiting CRM and applicant tracking system that is easy and quick to get up and running is a major factor in building a single, unified recruiting solution that small and mid-market staffing and recruiting firms can use for everything from recruitment to sale.

Being named “Most Implementable” by G2 Crowd is confirmation that Crelate’s efforts to build a functional, user-friendly system have hit the mark with their clients.
