The average recruitment agency has lots of online tools: applicant tracking system, website, job boards, social media. But with little or no integration between them, candidates get lost between the gaps to competing agencies.
Firefish leaves no gaps: the applicant tracking system, website, marketing and social channels are all integrated to maximise placement opportunities.
It allows recruitment agencies to attract candidates at a lower cost with improved SEO and social media marketing; to engage with existing candidates through job alerts and email marketing; and to take them right through to placement with an intuitive applicant tracking system.
It includes 5 key groups of features:
• Data Driven Websites
• Recruitment Marketing
• Applicant Tracking System
• Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
• Reports and KPIs
Gosh, where do I start? This has been an absolute steel for us as a system as there are so many features that I love.
This wont be in any particular order but here goes:
You can upload jobs very easily and post links to your preferred social media sites.
It's very user friendly and allows you to track candidates from sending out candidate CV all the way through to placing and on-boarding.
I use it daily and I am able to create bespoke emails (interview invitations; client contact emails; Christmas/New Year emails etc)
I use the bulk email shots for new roles and to touch base with candidates
There is a talent pooling function (we don't currently have this but are in the process of upgrading) as well as saved searches which allows you to put people into different 'functions' ie, Finance, Restaurant, Operations, Housekeeping etc.
It facilitates sales generated figures
It has great analytical tools which give an overview on how well vacancies perform etc
It also allows you to keep in touch with all of your candidates including the 'dormant' candidates without having to constantly pick up the phone.
All in all it has allowed us to grow our business and
It's interface and ability to navigate. 99% of it works and makes sense. There are a few areas of improvement, but they are always open to feedback and taking onboard new ways to improve their software. I've used other recruitment software in the past which has been very clunky and not easy to use, their functionality and ways to give us the ability to manage the system is very advanced. My team enjoy using it and it allows us to increase our workflow and conversions.
A recent update of the system was one that we felt wasn't needed. It does however look nicer, but some of the ease of use was reduced. However for new users I'm sure they wouldn't notice it, and my team are getting used to the update. Despite this, I still very much recommend this system.
Revolutionised our way of working and tracking all our records, both client and candidate, together with following interviews and where each candidate is in the process. We have been pleased from day one, especially as the fishes are so helpful and responsive.
It's extremely helpful in keeping everything in one place, and is easy to find contact and client information.
Not enough talent banks for our various disciplines and sectors we cover. It would be nice if the software interacted with whatsapp.

It's efficient, rarely breaks and easily customisable. I like the dashboard that clearly states your KPI's and easy to add notes on profiles
Would be good if there were a few more features included such as more options when sending a mailer, when a candidate applies directly not to automatically change their status and wipe the record card if already registered
Efficiency and ease of use
Fantastic customer support and assistance
Great website setup for SEO and job posting
Fantastic Advert and Job alerts driving applications
The software has an easy to use interface and is simple to use with an extreme amount of power for boolean search to optimise the candidates in relation to the adverts and jobs, allowing you to continually keep in contact with the candidate and understand the journey when speaking to the candidate in the future.
It would be nice to have Outlook support for the Apple Mac users and more user friendly mobile interface.
