Its (finally?) great to see a startup which is actually taking itself seriously, have built a compelling product that can easily compete globally on an even playing field, and is (finally?!) looking beyond portals and Adsense and quick cash fixes.
Even though this product team has just been making this for the past half a year or so, the product is already showing a lot more maturity and depth of knowledge about HR compared to Brightspyre and Rozee combined.
Some of the features I thought were very relevant was a communications system whereby you can coordinate with applicants and the history of discussions get archived right next to the applicant so that you can tell exactly why you hired someone down the road. Also great is a team todo system which links to applicants and resumes. Incredibly important to help SME HR teams pipeline their hiring activity. On top of this, they let you easily add a professional looking company job board to complement your site (this is similar to Rozee’s feature but I prefer the Simplicant UI). Take a look at the CDF Job Board on Simplicant as an example.
The clear value proposition of this to SMEs is the time and cost they would save to set this up themselves. Our original CDF job page took a few days of effort for the backend testing system and even now it has its kinks and is a chore to maintain. With simplicant I get something I would like to use, can get going in 5-mins, and they get to maintain it for me.
But still, rather than charging for the board and application itself, I would have been sold and wowed if they gave away the app for free and charged premium for job ad distributions and tests much like Rozee etc. If I they had such features, I’d choose simplicant easily over the existing players just because they are focused on making me look good in front of candidates and I’ve long argued that that is the way forward in job board companies.
Overall, I think this is a great product, executed on a beautiful interface – and even though its a young team I’m impressed by their professionalism and enthusiasm.
Good job guys and I think a lot of people from this blog as well will find your product useful.
