What Our Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, here’s what our customers have to say.
I have been using Chillifactor recruitment software for over two years now, and absolutely love it! In my previous role I introduced the software to a large multi-national I was working for, where the authorisation process was complex and a continual source of friction. Kirsten and her team quickly adapted the system to the needs of that business, and to this day authorisations are well managed, and delays in getting offers to candidates have been dramatically reduced.
Since establishing my own business, where recruitment is central to our offering, I use the software to ensure that clients are giving me the green light to proceed with each step of the process, and that my client accounts are well managed. This keeps them informed and safeguards me – especially when queries are later raised…
I cannot speak highly enough of this innovative, cost-effective and service orientated solution.Sandy Hayer
I have been working with Chilli Factor now for over 8 months and find it to be an extremely user friendly recruitment tool.
The programme ensures candidates go through a preferred process making it easy to follow up and manage candidate care, to manage all of the recruitment stages and keep all candidates details in a central location to refer back to. The icons are easy to understand as I have been up-skilling branch manager’s on its use, it’s reporting functions make life easier at month end, and the centralised management of external promotional channels makes it a great one-stop shop.
I would personally recommend Chilli Factor to any company wishing to centralise and improve their recruitment processes.Jennifer Findlay
