Some of the main competitors for SmartRecruiters are MyStaffing Pro as well as AppliView.

MyStaffing Pro addresses the applicant tracking process with support for job posting through multiple channels including online portals, tracking recruitment campaign effectiveness as well as monitoring an applicant at all stages in the process. Additional features include background & screening options with support for video interviews & qualification questionnaires, together with integration with Microsoft Dynamics GP for HR requirements. The product also supports electronic offer submission & approval with onboarding options as well.

SmartRecruiters on the other hand addresses many of the same features but also includes support for social media, LinkedIn & mobile job posting, as well as an employee referral program to improve the base of available candidates. The product supports collaboration tools to handle candidate reviews & assessment, along with an API for integration to other applications as well as development tools to add functionality to the product.
