What is an Applicant Tracking System?

An applicant tracking system (ATS) automates an organization’s recruiting and staffing operations, providing a central repository for candidate data—including résumés and applications. An ATS is built to help you better manage every stage in the recruiting process, from application to hire, while delivering greater overall efficiency.

A good ATS has the power to overhaul your entire staffing operation into the most productive, profitable and efficient business it can be. With proper implementation, they increase recruiter productivity, save time, and provide organization and structure for your staffing operations.

How to Evaluate ATS Software

What should you consider before investing in ATS software?

1. Define Your List of Requirements

Before you begin looking at different ATS software systems, you must compile a list of requirements for your ATS software. Review your recruitment process and document all steps, interactions, and points of frustration. Once your current process is clearly defined, map out your budget, goals and needs of your new software. As you evaluate ATS software, make sure their features and functionality meet these requirements.

2. Is There a CRM Integration with the ATS Software?

In today's competitive landscape, you can't solely rely on your current pool of candidates and clients. A recruitment-centric Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Software provides the insights and intelligence needed to build and foster your candidate and client relationships. When your ATS software and CRM work together, you'll unlock complete visibility into candidate and client activity

3. Is the ATS Software Flexible and Scalable?

Your ATS software should be flexible enough to provide your agency with not only a platform that remains state-of-the-art through consistent updates, but also the kind of individual attention you expect to make sure your agency's specialised needs are met at all times. A Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model has the highest flexibility and security when compared to an on-premise or hosted models.

With a SaaS ATS software,  multiple customers can securely use the same web-based application.  A SaaS ATS software can also provide upgrades to all of its customers without interrupting their service and implementations require less time and resources.
