We offer two ways to use RESUMate: running locally on your Windows PC or running remotely through our cloud service. RESUMate itself is identical whether running locally or remotely, so which option you choose depends on you and your business requirements.
The basic difference between the two options is (1) whether your data is stored on our cloud server or on your local PC, and (2) whether you pay an ongoing monthly subscription amount or a one-time payment for a lifetime license with no recurring fees.
RESUMate Desktop is Windows only. RESUMate Cloud works on Windows, Mac, and ChromeOS.
With RESUMate Desktop, you store your database on your own local Windows computer and we charge a one-time price for a lifetime license for your copy of RESUMate. You handle security and backups.
With RESUMate Cloud, we charge a monthly subscription to store your database on our servers, allowing you to connect and use RESUMate from anywhere with an internet conneciton. We handle security and backups.
When we release a new version of RESUMate, RESUMate Cloud subscribers are automatically upgraded at no additional cost. RESUMate Desktop customers have the option to purchase the upgrade at a discount, but can also continue using their current version.
If your situation changes (e.g. you hire another recruiter or start working from home), you can switch from Cloud to Desktop or vice versa. You always own your data and can use it however you see fit.
If you have questions about whether cloud or desktop will work best for you, give us a call or send us an email.
