Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What can I do with RESUMate Lite that I can’t do with RESUMate Free?
A: RESUMate Lite does two things RESUMate Free can’t do.  First, it can import batches of resumes (up to 1,000 at a time) as well as Excel spreadsheets and directories.  RESUMate Free can bring in records only one at a time.

Second, it can be used by multiple people simultaneously.  RESUMate Free is single-user only.

Q: Can I upgrade from RESUMate Free to RESUMate Lite?
A:  Of course.  If you want to get started on RESUMate Free and later decide to upgrade to RESUMate Lite, all of your records and data will carry over automatically.  The same is true if you want to upgrade to RESUMate Pro.

Q: How much does RESUMate Lite cost?
A: $195 per user.  You can see our full price list and discounted bundles by clicking over to our Prices page.

Q: Is this a monthly or annual subscription?
A: No, all of our prices are one-time only purchase prices.  Once you’ve purchased RESUMate Lite, it’s yours.

Q: What about upgrades?
A: Technical fixes are always provided free.  We release major upgrades about every two years, but they are always optional.  The version you’ve purchased will continue to work and be supported.

A: There is no numerical limit to RESUMate, though the database file itself is capped at a size of 1GB.  In practice, you can store up to 100,000 records in RESUMate without a problem.  If you’re looking to store hundreds of thousands or millions of resumes, RESUMate isn’t the right program for you.

Customer Testimonials

As I left my old firm we had around 3500 candidate records in resumate (3500 x 4 = 14000 minutes  14000 / 60 = 233.33), Resumate would have saved us roughly 233 hours in automated input in the first year alone.O'Fallon, IL

There’s a lot of recruiting software out there that costs $15,000 and this is better.Menlo Park, CA

I think pricing is good, more expensive than ACT but better for what we do as recruiters and much less expensive than other products I’ve seen that are marketed to larger companies.  The utility vs. price provides great value.Mandeville, LA

This kind of ongoing reliable service has allowed me to run my business better and more efficiently. RESUMate for me is a tried-and-true and trusted partner in my recruiting business. I couldn’t do it without you!Daytona Beach, FL

I really appreciate your training sessions via Webinar.  Every time I learn something new.  Our last software failed us on the training.Tempe, AZ

Additionally, the staff of RESUMate is always available to assist with any questions and they do so without an attitude.  I highly recommend RESUMate and their professional team.St. Helena, CA

Total cost of ownership is miniscule. I shopped around for a solution that was not hosted somewhere else in which my precious data was on someone else’s servers and I was captive to their recurring monthly costs.Ottawa, ON

This is my workhorse.  Between this and Outlook I make my house payments.Grosse Pointe, MI

I can’t tell you how ecstatic I am over this program.  I don’t think I’ve ever been this happy with software before.San Francisco, CA
