Back to Blog Bullhorn Tops Capterra’s List: Top 20 Most Popular Applicant Tracking System by Katie Tierney on June 15th, 2016 Capterra recently released its Top 20 Most Popular Applicant Tracking System list and… drumroll, please…. Bullhorn’s applicant tracking system once again took the top spot! Across more than 300 categories, Capterra helps companies find the right system that’ll help them meet their business needs. And since 2011, Capterra’s been publishing its Top 20 Most Popular Software series. What’s Capterra’s Top 20 Most Popular System Series? Here’s Capterra’s take on what their Top 20 Most Popular System Series is all about: “The Top 20 Most Popular System Series is exactly what it sounds like: a report ranking the top vendors in a system market according to the number of customers, users, and social presence. It seeks to answer one of the most common questions software buyers ask when beginning their search, “which is the most popular option?” We chose to rank the top 20, however, because the most popular isn’t always the best fit. Most reports on the market use revenue as a primary metric to determine market share, which gives an advantage to higher-priced system solutions. Our report forgoes revenue data in favor of “people metrics.” Capterra’s Most Popular Report is the only report–online or offline–which provides key data points on users and customers, determining market share based on how many people and businesses use the software. In Capterra’s experience working with system buyers, this is the true popularity metric buyers want to understand about the market before making a purchase decision. This is real data that we collect from the software vendors themselves.” Ranking Applicant Tracking System Vendors: Bullhorn Tops the List Capterra began ranking applicant tracking system (ATS) vendors in 2015, and Bullhorn’s proud to have topped the list two years in a row. Gordon Burnes, Bullhorn’s CMO, said: “We’re honored to once again rank first on Capterra’s Top 20 Most Popular Applicant Tracking System list. Our ATS helps users make better decisions, improve sales and recruiter productivity, and manage the entire recruitment and applicant management process from a single, easy-to-use interface.
