I solved my recruitment problem. I am able to get profiles that i use seek, for so many different technologies.
Auto migration has the great benefit of making our own data base.
Moreover, we can even upload our own data also.

I have an admin account in CEIPAL. Apart from minor inconsistencies, it's good software
The main problem I face is once the profile is migrated it won't update after we find the same consultant with an updated resume.

Not Perfect, But Worth the Money

If you don't want to pay thousands for an ATS, CEIPAL is the choice. There are some bugs and some things seem backwards or not user friendly, but it offers great features like an ATS database and integrated search. Support is great at resolving issues and answering any questions

Ceipal is an extremely useful software that allows me to search and track applicants all the way from contacting them through the full interview process and the onboarding. The only issue with ceipal is the difficulty in figuring out where each feature is in the software.
