"Alberta Blue Cross has been using HireGround Software Solutions Applicant Tracking System since May 2009. We have 8 user licenses and have posted approximately 130 positions. We have found that HireGround Software suits our tracking system needs. It is easy to learn and very user friendly. Implementation was efficient and we were able to customize to suit our needs. The staff at HireGround are extremely supportive and get back to us quickly when we have questions or issues.
I recommend HireGround Software Solutions products to other companies and organizations searching for an Applicant Tracking System."

"The City of Red Deer has been utilizing HireGround's recruitment software since mid 2007. HireGround has improved The City's recruitment process immeasurably by providing the tools required to effectively manage our job postings.
The Software was implemented in a very short time frame and we did encounter some security and firewall issues initially which HireGround assisted us in resolving. HireGround has provided excellent customer service and support to The City of Red Deer and any issues that have arisen have been addressed and resolved in a timely manner. The software is very user friendly for candidates, hiring managers, the HR Consultants and administrators.
I would certainly recommend HireGround as a valuable recruitment tool."

“I am pleased to recommend StartDate as a great applicant tracking system for a business that wants to increase efficiencies in their recruiting and hiring practices.
GroupHEALTH has been a HireGround client since March 2013 and we were pleased to migrate to the StartDate system May 2014.
The update to StartDate was very quick and seamless, and since we had been given the opportunity to demo the product, we were comfortable with the system and could begin utilizing it right away!
The product is intuitive – things are exactly where you’d expect them to be! It is also mobile friendly, so hiring managers can shortlist candidates from a phone, tablet, or laptop, without loss in functionality.
We usually have an average of 10 job postings per month, and each role requires unique competencies and skills. The StartDate system allows us to build our own pre-screening questions for each role, so we can shortlist up front on the must-haves. This helps save time for our hiring managers as they do not need to review candidate resumes at length to determine if they have the core skills to do the job.
When choosing a company to work with, having a great support team was a must-have. We’ve received stellar service from Martin and Terry on the support team. Both have always responded in a timely manner, are very knowledgeable about the product, and welcome suggestions/ideas from us. It’s nice to call for support and speak to someone that knows you and your account well. The fact that HireGround saves data on Canadian servers was also a big plus for us as well.
For anyone looking to switch to another ATS, or considering implementing a new ATS, I would strongly recommend chatting with the team at HireGround about StartDate. Happy hiring!”

“…the HireGround team is proactive at producing new releases frequently, knowledgeable in the talent management arena, flexible and always available to listen and implement changes and most importantly they provide customized fields that other vendors would not even consider.”

“I spent quite a bit of time researching Applicant Tracking systems before I found HireGround. Most systems were complex and not budget-friendly. When I had the opportunity to implement an ATS at my current organization, I jumped at the opportunity to partner with HireGround. The implementation was quick and painless. The system makes sense, can be customized, and is very easy to use. I can train a new user in under five minutes as a Hiring Manager.
The team is always looking for ways to improve and really takes user feedback into consideration for upgrades.
I recommend this system to any HR professional who needs help managing the candidate process and posting jobs in Canada.”
— Masha Ali, Human Resources Manager
HireGround's suite of products and staff are a local Calgary company that I would recommend to any company that is interested in purchasing an ATS and or a job board that yields many returns. As a native Calgarian I am always interested in supporting our local market and have utilized HireGround to thoroughly implement three ATS for Enerflex, Athabaskan Resource Company and Trican Well Service.
When preparing a business proposal for all three of these former employers I had the pleasure and confidence that HireGround would not only exceed my expectations and budgetary considerations and the scope of our project recommending additional services and customizations for free and or at a nominal price.
Secondly the HireGround team is proactive at producing new releases frequently, knowledgeable in the talent management arena, flexible and always available to listen and implement changes and most importantly customize fields that other vendors would not even consider.
I would highly recommend HireGround and they will assist your company with maximum return on investment and man-hours immediately. HireGround's top-performing customer service team and products and implementation services have my highest regard and recommendation.
