Recruiting Software: Total Package or Best of Breed?

How to choose the right recruiting software for your needs.

When data-analytics company LatentView Analytics needed to hire 100 new employees last year—doubling its size in just a few months—the company knew it was time to upgrade its recruiting software system.

LatentView had been using JobScore, a social recruiting software system that recommends candidates for specific positions, but Pramad Jandhyala, the company’s co-founder and director of human resources, thought the company needed a more integrated tool to meet its growth goals. So she transitioned recruiting to Salesforce.com.

“We liked JobScore, but most of our other HRIS activities were done on Salesforce,” she says, referring to human resource information systems. “It just made sense to move to a single platform.”
