Bullhorn competes with the best CRM and recruiting software in the world. Some of its competitors include Zoho Recruit, JobDiva, CEIPAL ATS, and Zip Recruiter.
  • Functionality: Bullhorn basic features are average compared with its competitors. However, it encompasses many of the unique features of its competitors. Zoho Recruit, JobDiva, CEIPAL ATS, and Bullhorn all have platforms for Recruitment Platforms, staffing, marketing, and Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS). Specifically, Zoho Recruit has a recruiting automation system; JobDiva has both recruiting automation and onboarding, while CEIPAL ATS combines the features of JobDiva with the SAP store. Whereas, Bullhorn has all these features.
  • Customer/Industries: Customers and industries prefer Zoho Recruit, CEIPAL ATS, and JobDiva to Bullhorn. This software meets their requirements and has better features than Bullhorn. However, small businesses prefer Zoho Recruit, midsize and large businesses use CEIPAL ATS, Bullhorn, and JobDiva.
  • Cost: Just like Bullhorn, JobDiva pricing information is not available. At the same time, Zoho Recruit offers four plans. Zoho Recruit has a Free Plan available for one recruiter. It also has a Standard Edition plan of $30/Month, a Professional of $60/Month, and a Enterprise $90/Month. CEIPAL ATS costs $24 per month, and it is available for a maximum of 5 users. Cloud-based/ on-premise: Bullhorn, as well as all its competitors, is cloud-based ATS software.
  • Scalability: Bullhorn is compatible with small, medium-sized, and large businesses. However, its competitors only have customers from medium-sized and large businesses.
  • Support: Compared to its competitors, Bullhorn is the most useful as it is compatible with Linux, Windows, and Mac operating systems. CEIPAL ATS can only work on a Mac, while JobDiva cannot work with a Linux operating system. Bullhorn can also work with iPhones, Ipads as well as Android phones. In addition, all Bullhorn competitors have FAQ/forum system, phone support, 24/7 live chat, and knowledge base. However, only Bullhorn does not have an Email/Help desk platform; all others have.
