Fountain Overview

What is Fountain?

Fountain is a hiring automation platform for franchise operators and on-demand distributed workforces, which offers features including custom applicant workflows, a hiring dashboard, screening functionality, automated communications, a scheduling toolkit, video interviews, and more. The cloud-based tool is designed to help hiring teams in building their workforce through automated tasks and a mobile-first application.

Businesses can use Fountain for sourcing and hiring candidates and to aid with maximizing recruiting potential. Through automation of tasks such as sending SMS messages to candidates, performing screening functions, conducting background checks, and more, Fountain helps HR teams to focus on the more important tasks. Custom workflows can be generated to automate processes, with options to select minimum requirements for jobs, automatically post new job openings to job boards, and set up recurring tasks when certain action triggers are carried out. Candidate sourcing can be optimized using the Boost! Tool within Fountain, which allows businesses to enter their hiring goals and provides recommendations on budgets and methods of distribution. Boost! can automatically post to job boards based on this data, and all applicants can be tracked in one place.

Interviews can be scheduled within Fountain by sending candidates SMS or email invitations and providing them with the permissions to book a timeslot based on the invitees calendar. Fountain also facilitates video interviews for remote recruiting and pre-screening, with candidates able to record video answers to pre-defined interview questions. Fountain is designed to be mobile-first for applicants in order to allow candidates to apply for open positions and view their application status from anywhere, on any mobile device. The analytics dashboard within Fountain provides users with insight into their hiring funnel performance and number of conversions, as well as reporting on specific metrics such as interview attendance, team performance, hire rate, job post views, and more.

The Fountain team seems to truly value the feedback of their clients, and our CSR has been a great partner in ensuring we are taking full advantage of what Fountain can offer in order to meet our unique needs and business objectives.

Pros

Fountain made scaling and managing our applicant funnels possible. Various integrations with 3rd party systems such as document signing, BGC and LMS platforms have been invaluable to manage paperwork and monitor applicant progress through the onboarding process.

Cons

Limited tools/features that allow users to manage multiple funnels simultaneously, ie text/chat feature or opening view. I would also like to see posthire features improve to keep Fountain as an active tool beyond onboarding.

The new and updated version of Fountain is wonderful. My company has been able to provide different services at the same time. The flexibility and communication has been great and they are able to provide the service and support in a timely manner.

Pros

What I like most about this software is that you are able to cater it to what your business needs. I know in my line of work things and processes are constantly changing, so having the flexibility and fast responses is great to make the necessary changes in a timely manner.

Cons

It's hard to pinpoint one thing as this is a great software. But there are rare times they have an outage and it is down for a tiny bit of time. But they are very transparent when that happens.

Pros

I use fountain to review applications for various positions within our company. I like that we can customize application questions and document upload fields in order to efficiently gather all necessary information in one place. Also, the integrated texting feature makes it easy to communicate with applicants regarding application status, or to schedule interviews. Fountain also allows for the inclusion of video response questions, so I can get a sense of the applicant before arranging for further interviews.

Cons

My one major complaint is that documents uploaded in fountain do not always transfer successfully into our internal system. Fairly regularly, I find that documents imported from fountain become unreadable or unable to be opened, meaning I have to go back to fountain, download the document to my hard drive and manually import.

It has been a good experience with a few hiccups along the way.

Pros

It is a good central location to keep all of your employee training and interviewing in one location so that you don't have to look all over.

Cons

The interface can be really messy/ugly and sometimes difficult to sync with google calendars and other softwares used during hiring process.

Pros

We've used Fountain for ~2.5 years and have seen notable changes in the product. There's a ton of customizability and an open API lets us build the perfect system for our processes without much engineering required. Support has been great - both in general response time and willingness to address feature requests.

Cons

Fountain's focus is on functionality and obviously less so in the UI. There's limited design customization which makes it hard to utilize certain features. It serves as a strong backend system, but the applicant portal doesn't exactly meet our needs.
