Broadbean Overview

What is Broadbean?

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.

Good asset for staffing

Overall it is easy to work with support and is almost always up and running as a service. Broadbean also has a good amount of integration options for whatever applicant tracking system you are currently using.


Chad C.

Best Job Board Aggregator on the Market

Broadbean has been a great partner with us. We love their product and really wish we would be able to utilize their resume search feature within our current ATS. Their Job Posting function which we currently use works without any issues. We very rarely have any issues with Jobs not posting correctly. Overall a great product that does exactly what you need it to do.

Great service for managing Job Adverts

Great overall - achieves its purpose with ease, and gives regular reports.

Decent for posting adverts to multiple sources and integrations

Definitely recommend trialing it as a tool. I think it's one of the most widely used in the Agency Staffing / Recruitment industry so reliable and likely it will have the integrations that you need.

No doubt that Broadbean is a time saver for posting job adverts to multiple sources - no more copy and pasting, having to remember multiple logins and you can even refresh them quickly. It's also very handy to have a record of all your old positions when you have similar ones that you can reference.

Another good feature is that if you have a good integration with your ATS / CRM, then you will be able to track job board sources automatically, have the applicants linked to the position and then use the data to track ROI.

Admins can manage users and permissions easily too - including allowing posting to company social networks without needing to share login details.

Overall it is easy to work with support and is almost always up and running as a service. Broadbean also has a good amount of integration options for whatever applicant tracking system you are currently using.

Pros

Very good user interface for recruiters to use while searching for candidates and for passive recruiting. Job posting is also very straightforward.

Cons

No auto user provisioning makes it a pain to add users to another system. Manually changing credentials could be a smoother process as well.

Broadbean has been a great partner with us. We love their product and really wish we would be able to utilize their resume search feature within our current ATS. Their Job Posting function which we currently use works without any issues. We very rarely have any issues with Jobs not posting correctly. Overall a great product that does exactly what you need it to do.

Pros

The best ability with this software is the quickness and usability. When I say quickness, I am referring to how fast the tool finds results and uploaded them into the ATS (applicant tracking system). The code they have built is much better than any competitor on the market. Usability is a big plus for this software as well. Their UI is very straight forward and easy to use. They have updated their UI so it does not look old and clunky unlike some of their competitors. Broadbean integrates extremely well into other SaaS solutions in particular Bullhorn ATS. We recently moved away from Bullhorn and now only use Broadbean for a job posting tool (which works very well) and we dearly miss the candidate search functionality.

Cons

Duplicate management is very tough with any resume parser. So many people use so many different styles and formats of resume, catching duplicates becomes very tough. I thought Broadbean could use some enhancement on this front. We are constantly dealing with resume entering our system that are duplicates and causing data integrity issues. If you have a messy database you might consider investing in duplication checks along with a product like Broadbean

Great overall - achieves its purpose with ease, and gives regular reports.

Pros

The fact that it archives adverts for quick and easy editing, as opposed to writing from scratch each time. Also, the fact that you can reach such a large variety of platforms was great

Cons

Interface is pretty bland and outdated - could use a fresher UI. This could also make it a bit easier to use.

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

Pros

No frills tool that does what it says on the tin. You can link it to your ATS / CRM, job boards and social profiles and it will push out all of your postings. Ad responses are then received to your email and tracked centrally.

Cons

I never find much use for the 'CV Portal' feature where you rate the ad responses as prefer to use my email inbox where I can reply to and keep track of all responses in one place. It's also not the most advanced or fully featured tool, but that's not necessarily a bad thing to keep things simple and reliable, instead of unnecessarily complicated.
