Job posting delivery and candidate search software

4/5 (8 reviews)

Broadbean Overview

Broadbean provides job posting and candidate search tools for recruiters. Broadbean is a software-as-a-service platform that allows recruiters to quickly distribute job adverts to job boards across the globe, sort and filter candidates with user-defined criteria, and analyze the hiring process for continual improvement. With features that give users oversight of ad spend, automatic aggregation across popular job boards, and social media integration, Broadbean consolidates a wealth of formerly disparate routines into one application.

Broadbean’s functions extend beyond job posting. The SaaS features candidate management as well as application tracking system (ATS) integration. Broadbean streamlines this process, placing the focus on speed and ROI. It does this while improving the overall quality of the experience for candidates by connecting them with relevant roles, even after the position for which they originally applied has been filled. The software also creates an applicant database of all candidates who complete applications, for future reference.

The software also includes employee referral tools, which can help existing employees introduce recruiters to highly qualified candidates. Broadbean’s social media integration and gamification tools bring existing employees into the recruiting process by facilitating incentives for their involvement.

Broadbean tools function as a Web-based SaaS within any browser and on popular social networking sites.

Saves so much time if you use multiple Job Boards

Used Daily for 1+ year

Review Source: SoftwareAdvice

Overall, it is a good software that will save a lot of time for Recruiters if they are using multiple job boards to post their jobs on.

Pros

If you use more than one Job Board, this software will save you time. First used this in 2015, and the best feature which we used all the time was to post how Job Adverts on Broadbean, and Boradbean will post/advertise you job across all of the Job Boards that you use.

Without this you would usually have to go to each Job Board and post your advert which can be extremely time consuming if you are using 3 or more Job Boards which a lot of Recruitment companies do.

Cons

Nothing really to complain about with Broadbean. Occasionally I had problems with the Software freezing on me, but this was not a re-occurring issue. Also, if you do have problems with the Software it can be a nightmare to reach Customer Service.

Pros

Ease of use is what took our company from Daxtra to Broadbean. The user-friendliness of Broadbean was much better than competitors. Our user found fewer issues with the integration with our ATS. The concept of shortlisting matched out compnay terminolgy as well, which made training much smoother.

Cons

Support can tend to point the finger at the other vendors. Since Broadbean deal with all the job boards, we tend to see that they would alwasy point the finger at the other vendors when there are issues.

In its basic form it seems to do the job

Pros

The ability to post jobs quickly to the paid boards from Bullhorn. If you want to post quickly to Dice, it is a must have as their is no posting integration that is native to Bullhorn

Cons

The way candidates are brought into the system and some past experience we had with fields being auto populated. it may have been fixed, but we just don't use those fields for data
