“We use PCRecruiter system wide at Cerca Talent. We use it for both recruiting and sales which is difficult for most other ATSs on the market. In looking for a reasonably priced applicant tracking system with all the functions of the major players, PCRecruiter has been the right solution for us for over 10 years.”

“I have used PCRecruiter (PCR) for over 15 years. If every vendor that we work with was as good a PCR my life would be a lot better. The functions of the software meet all of our needs; customer service is extraordinary, if you have a suggestion they listen!

PCR has evolved over the years to keep up with new things that are happening like social media. As stated they listen to suggestions and take input seriously.”

“PCRecruiter is used to manage both recruitment job flow and business development activity. Having started my own business and currently working independently it is essential to the bulk of my day to day activities. Being able to customise different elements of the database means that I am able to search and categorise according to what matters most to my business. New options for attaching files through Outlook has improved workflow significantly.”

– Managing Consultant, Human Resources | Read the full review


“PCRecruiter is being used across the entire organization. The main and major business problem we were able to address was the creation of a centralized database for all of our business groups to use for their clients that expand across several industries, verticals and locations.”

Regarding PCRecruiter Launcher Popups

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in News

UPDATED JAN. 24: The latest update for Google Chrome is now out, and has resolved this issue. Chrome will update automatically, but if you would like to prompt an immediate update, visit the Help > About Google Chrome panel in your browser’s menu.


Some users have reported that the PCRecruiter Launcher is popping-up unexpectedly with each fresh log-in and with the use of any Launcher control (document editors, schedule alarms, etc.)

After analysis, we have found that the issue is confined to the Chrome browser. The issue is due to Chrome’s failure to adhere to the pop-up preference selection, which should suppress that message if users select the option after the initial use of the Launcher or control. This issue affects all pop-up windows in Chrome (including those unrelated to PCRecruiter) on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

A fix for this issue, which has been detailed by Google as Chrome won’t remember custom protocol associations, has been added to the next release of the Chrome browser (v.64). The production fix is scheduled for approximately January 23, 2018. Details on the release schedule for Chrome can be found here.

The beta version of Chrome, which now contains the fix, can be found here. Main Sequence does not advise the use of beta versions of any browser with PCRecruiter whenever practical. While the current issue is annoying, it does not involve security compromise or a potential for data-loss at this time.

We regret any inconvenience, but please note that the issue is outside of our control.

Happy New Year from PCRecruiter

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in News

It’s that joyful season again. The PCRecruiter team extends our best wishes for the new year and our highest regards to everyone in our audience. As we approach New Year’s Eve, we enter our 20th year of serving staffing, perm placement, and direct-hire markets for talent acquisition technology around the world. 2017 was a fine vintage, with many of our customers appearing on “top” lists as leaders in their spaces, and PCRecruiter looking better than ever to industry analysts and software review sites.

In 2017, PCRecruiter released our comprehensive Analytics module, a new platform for complex split transactions, a revamp of the whole placements function,  and added lots of new timesaving features into the PCR Portal for MS Outlook, PCR Capture Chrome Extension, and throughout PCRecruiter in general.

We also supported a number of new top-shelf integrations this year including Textkernel, Verified First, TextRecruit, LogicMelon, Seek, Indeed, and more.  To more quickly respond to end-user needs we added the in-app notification banner and the PCR Canvas for development feedback. We also completely replaced our online service system at help.pcrecruiter.com, including a new Ideas & Requests forum.

In 2018 we are planning to announce even greater enhancements to PCRecruiter’s emailing, job posting, mobile access, analytics, and more.

We hope that 2018 brings you prosperity beyond your tallest estimates, and great bounty of all that money can’t buy!
