Question about cost. Do any of you know of any services that provide candidate leads to your CRM and how much do they cost? Based on monthly subscription or volume of leads they provide?

We use the Sugar CRM Community version for sales and need to modify for recruiting work flow.  Does anyone know of Sugar compatible recruiting plug ins?

Resume Parsing, Candidate templates, etc?

Also, I'll be in Chicago for the HR Tech show at McCormick Place 9/30-10/2 if you want to come by and see us or any of the other software vendors.

The approach we've taken to the CRM vs. ATS conundrum is that each represents a different workflow. So we built a workflow design tool that allows each customer to build and use multiple workflows. Typically that's for CRM (sales/BD, sourcing, talent pooling, etc.) and ATS (hiring/selection processes). Unfortunately it seems that many software vendors come up very short when it comes to flexible workflow design and it's really one of the most important components if you want to effectively track any pipeline oriented activity, be it hiring, sourcing, client prospecting, hire readiness of talent pools, segmented CRM tactics, etc.

Thank you for your response. I’m not sure which of the three categories you describe I would fall into. I suppose what I want is a low cost fully integrated solution that includes ATS and CRM capabilities. The question, as always, is which tradeoffs am I willing to accept? Oh, By the way it would be nice if a system would pick up the phone and make calls for me too but I think that may be too much to ask.

Welcome to the group James. In the interest of full disclosure I want to inform you that I work for Avature and we have a product called RecruitingCRM (as the name would suggest, a CRM designed for recruiting). That being said, I think you will find varied answers whenever you ask a question like yours. I'm not sure a consensus has emerged but what I will say is that I tend to run into three camps of CRM buyers in recruiting - 1) looking for a pure play CRM system designed specifically for recruiting (low cost, generally plug and play) 2) looking at the platform-as-a-service model like Salesforce or SugarCRM where they can develop their own customizations on the platform and/or buy apps from an exchange (not plug-and-play but highly customized and generally the most expensive route) and 3) buy a CRM from their ATS or other existing recruiting software provider because it's integrated (albeit not usually as robust as a pure play CRM). I'd be happy to discuss in more detail if you'd like.
