I selected Darwin CRM because it has a user interface that is easy to use and reduce the learning pains involved when transitioning recruitment software systems. I was pleased with the way my team quickly came up to speed on how to get the most out of the system.

My initial concerns of switching cloud hosted database have proved to wrong. The initial speeds experienced were good and since the system was implemented the 1Click team have made continued adjustments that have resulted in great speed and performance.

We invested a great deal of time and money in to making some bespoke changes to the basic system. These changes were made efficiently by their development team, with the end result being a system that has been tailored to fit our recruitment process, rather than our process having to adapt to the limitations found in many recruitment CRM systems.

I think it would be fair to say that we couldn’t have got off to the start we have without the help of Mike and the guys at Darwin. After spending 25 years at Hays working with the ADAPT system it is great to meet a team of people that have the flexibility and “can do” attitude to supply a CRM system built around us and what we need.

Mike’s care and attention to detail is a real winner and is clearly driven into the whole organisation.

Can we help?

We were previously using a Sage Product which was too slow, hard to search and with no email integration. We looked into other providers but didn’t find them particularly easy to use or intuitive. The CRM was by far our best choice yet.

The interface is brilliant, with seamless Outlook integration and quick searching capability! We would not hesitate to recommend Darwin 1Click CRM to any fellow recruiter, and the team have been outstanding from Sales through to Delivery & Support!

The CRM software is amazing. It is going to save our recruitment department a lot of headaches and time. We needed something user friendly that would work quickly and efficiently with maximum features for storing and recovering data.

I am convinced that their straightforward job database is the solution for us and it will be a complete success. In addition the company is professional, prompt, extremely helpful and very supportive.

We have now had 2 years of using many of the tools in the CRM and are finding it a pleasure to use and very strong asset to our business.

Thank you for your patience and continued support, we have used many database systems in our careers to support our recruiting needs and have to say the system has been the easiest to grasp just by using the training videos and training tools supplied. Great job on developing a tool for our industry that can be managed quickly and easily.

We decided to go with Darwin over Microdec and the other software suppliers we had spoken to because our consultants found that your products were easily understandable, incorporated everything they require and enabled them to work much more efficiently.

The demonstration of the CRM software quickly convinced our consultants of the benefits it would bring to our company, and how it would streamline our business and services.

After looking at various CRM solutions, they seemed a clear winner. The time they spent with us before we committed to buy was impressive. Their sales people were keen to understand exactly how we worked.

The care given by the team in ensuring we were able to use the system to its fullest potential once we had it was equally impressive. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys.

The 1Click CRM interface seemed instantly familiar and feels a lot like an extension of our MS Office suite. They offer an affordable, valuable service.

Well done DARWIN!

When I read through the section on their partnership with Microsoft and access to MS’s labs to continue research and development of the software, I decided to download the trial version. The interaction with the database software was excellent, and exactly what I was looking for – very user-friendly, and the appearance is similar to Outlook, so you feel as if you are on familiar territory. Navigation through the CRM was very easy to learn on my own because of the clarity and thoroughness of the KnowledgeBase.

After sales support was also very good, considering the time difference. In summary, I am very pleased with the purchase and comfortable that the support is there should anything go awry.

The team of Directors at Connect HR & Recruitment Ltd reviewed multiple software solutions with various companies before agreeing to go ahead with the system.

Our decision was not only based on price, which is key to a small business like ours, but also on the flexibility of the system and how we see it working for us. We go live with the system next week & fully envisage it to make us much more efficient.

Over the last few years our dealings with the team, from the initial point of sale contact, the IT team and the MD, have all been very helpful and professional.

I have recently completed a global search and evaluation process to select a Recruitment CRM for our IT consultancy here in New Zealand. We have selected to use Darwin over its competitors because of its superior ease of use, functionality and flexibility to meet our specific requirements.

With 15+ years experience in the industry, I think this is the best technology advance since e-mail replaced the fax.

Mike Chatha and his team are continually extending the software with useful features, and as a company they are clearly committed to building long term relationships.

We hope to stay with them for a long time to come.

I was recommended to Darwin following a decision to move away from Bond Adapt and have found the team to always be helpful with any of my needs. The “1 CLICK” CRM software itself is a great system easy to use and always evolving, due to continued development and have recommended it to a number of other colleagues in the recruitment industry.

The Outlook integration is superb while its ‘recruitment friendly’ features help save time. After testing and using the software it became obvious that the thought and process that has gone into its creation, is truly aimed towards making recruitment consultants more efficient.

The CRM database is so quick and easy, that when looking back on using previous CRM systems I suddenly realised just how much time and energy was wasted.

The CRM software is great value for money and simple to use. Fantastic on-going support from Arvon and very easy to tailor the software and its functionality to your business’s individual requirements. An all-round practical and well thought out recruitment software solution.

Having worked with internally designed and larger ‘off the shelf’ products, I was keen to use a cloud based product that would combine all the stronger parts of these systems for Seek Technical. With this provider we feel that we have found a CRM company that genuinely understands the recruitment sector, and how a consultant would use their database on a day to day basis. Their initial introduction to the system and continued support has been excellent.

They have been professional from the off. The CRM itself is a perfect tool to assist with recruitment, it is easy to use, cv parsing is simple and the system will absolutely help us move our business forward and on to the next level.

Having worked for two leading Recruitment Software Providers and having been a recruitment consultant end user of others, I feel that Darwin 1Click is one of the most innovative pieces of Recruitment Software that I have either used, sold or seen.

This is an easy to use system. One touch and everything you need to track is there! Plus the support the team give you from initial contact through to go live is brilliant. Great customer care. So if you are looking for a system to support your perm recruitment process then look no further.

After some searching around for a CRM system, we talked to several companies, Darwin being one of them. They were professional, on time, expert in their knowledge and their system functionality was second to none.

Our sales person was the most proficient advisor we have experienced – she was knowledgeable, friendly, warm and natural with a great talent for her system and a great way about bringing us on board she ‘listened to the customer’ !

The biggest USP for us, apart from the cost, was the totally free SMS service, no other provider we talked to offers this or links in to ‘Linkedin’ the way that this CRM system does, another great ‘USP’.

We are very excited to be in partnership with such a good provider.

When I started my business 5 years ago I was looking for Recruitment software that dealt with permanent recruitment, easy to use yet had the functionality to track and locate clients and candidates without being complex.

Over the years the the team have upgraded it to exactly fit our needs and when a new consultant joins us can be up and running in 24 hours. I also like the fact that it interfaces with just 1Click into Outlook and LinkedIn and is evolving all the time. The Team are efficient and responds quickly to resolve our queries. Have no hesitation in recommending the CRM software to both small and large businesses.

After our first 2 weeks using this “1Click” CRM system would be more than happy to recommend it. It’s simplicity is the key; Intuitive, well designed and easy on the eye (something that seems to have been overlooked thus far with recruitment CRM software). The 1Click integration with Outlook is seamless and enables you to manage and store communications with clients and candidates without having to think. It’s also flexible and the service team are always on hand to help get the most out of the software.

As a start up, it was imperative for us to choose the right software for our organisation first time round. Did we make the right decision? Definitely!

It’s simple, effective, quick, and immediately integrates with Outlook and LinkedIn. Not only is the product great but the team – both sales and support – are outstanding. Professional, friendly and do what they say they’re going to do – quickly. Great product, great service.

Having recently started using the CRM I have been very impressed with the ease of use and simplicity in CV parsing and searching tools. An excellent system that has already shown its’ worth. And to top it all off the support and assistance from everyone has been second to none in getting started, resolving any issues and continuous support.

Keep it up!!

Out of the many systems available in the market (and having used many of them in the past) Darwin for me stood way above their competitors for a number of reasons.

The system is user friendly and uncomplicated even if you are used to other systems, and you get outstanding value with so called market leaders offering an inferior product for considerably more as well as charging for extras this beats them hands down.

On top of all this the support and guidance you receive from your account manager is informative and helpful without being too pushy and sales focused. The support team and product is fantastic and I would recommend it to any business of any size.

Darwin has provided us with an efficient, easy to use 1Click recruitment database which completely fits our business needs.

We were very impressed with the level of service we received during the trial, installation and going live stages of the process, as well as the superb after care service. It was simple to make changes to the layout and add additional fields to make it more suitable for our agency.

The staff have been extremely helpful throughout the whole process and are always very prompt at coming back with any additional requests we’ve had. I would certainly recommend the database to other recruitment businesses.

Wish I’d switched earlier! What a great effective intelligent system. The functionality is simple, quick, user friendly and familiar. Having moved from a bespoke system I am utterly amazed at how easily adaptable the system has been to my specific needs and it’s far more cost effective too. Staff I’ve dealt with have been a credit to the company!

The application has been extremely impressive and very user friendly. The CRM features are relevant and easy to use which makes life much easier than other products we have trialled. Changes to the layout and any additional fields which are specific to our business are easily created and altered making it bespoke to our business.

Along with a great product, the staff have been helpful, polite and professional throughout the process – all in all, a pleasure to work with. The system has added great value to us so far, so a big thank you to the Team.
