Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose Scout Talent software over HRIS?

HRIS can lead your organisation into a technological dead-end if the system is not using current technology. Databases and programs can quickly become out of date and ineffective. The system can also lack specialised features and functionality in certain applications. Maintenance and updates affect the entire system, which can interrupt access. Updates with bugs cause more headaches! All this creates further pain and frustration in the recruitment process. It can increase time to hire, which ultimately increases costs.

Having the right tools to do the job is essential and this begins with superior best-of-breed technology. Recruitment is a critical strategic function, not an add-on. Our systems are built specifically to streamline your recruitment process, drive best practice in talent acquisition and invigorate your employer brand. They’re not bolt-ons to HRIS or payroll systems, which so often force you to compromise. Scout Talent’s solutions meet the specific needs of in-house recruitment teams and your hiring managers.

What is best-in-breed software?

A best-of-breed (BoB) system is the best system in its specialist category. It’s an advanced platform that provides specialised features for a particular application. Some organisations believe it’s difficult for a software provider to excel in every niche, which is why they purchase software from different vendors to build the best enterprise workflows via integrated applications.

Scout Talent is recruitment software built by recruiters, for recruiters. We know that bringing the right talent into your organisation is a critical strategic priority, and cannot not be compromised on. In comparison, a human resources information system (HRIS) covers all aspects of human resources to administer organisational processes and collect data. Essentially, it’s a software suite that links components across an organisation using one central data hub. However, this can mean compromise in specialist functionality.
