See Bullhorn's Recruiting Solutions
According to Bullhorn's 2018 UK Recruitment Trends Report, the majority of recruiters cannot do their job effectively without an Applicant Tracking System (ATS).
What is an Applicant Tracking System? An ATS is a software solution that automates an agency's recruitment operations, providing a central repository for candidate data – including CVs and applications. With 78% of UK recruitment agencies utilising an ATS system to track candidate activity, this is the preferred solution for recruiting high-quality candidates both quickly and cost-effectively.
As the first step in your evaluation process, you must compile a list of requirements for your ATS. Start by reviewing your recruiting process and document all steps, interactions, and points of frustration. Once you have clearly defined your current process, map out your budget and goals and needs of your new system. As you evaluate systems, make sure their features and functionality meet these requirements.
In today's competitive landscape, it's not enough to solely rely on your current pool of candidates and clients. A recruitment-centric Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Software provides the insights and intelligence that you need to build and foster these candidate and client relationships. When your ATS and CRM work together, you'll gain full visibility into client and candidate activity.

Your ATS Software should have the flexibility 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 provides the highest flexibility and security when compared to an on-premise or hosted models.
An ATS with a SaaS model securely allows multiple customers to use the same web-based application. A SaaS system can provide upgrades to all of its customers without interrupting their service and implementations require less time and resources.
Mobile access to your ATS system allows your recruiters and salespeople to be armed with up-to-the-second information about clients and candidates, giving them better insight for offsite meetings. Since recruiters are constantly on the go, mobile access is critical to your agency's success and helps provide better client service as well as a better candidate experience.
ATS software provides an all-in-one dashboard for managing the entire recruiting process – from job submission to candidate placement. The right applicant tracking software should give you an efficiency advantage that enhances your existing workflow, leading to higher and faster levels of user adoption.
To manage the entire workflow, your ATS software should work seamlessly with the solutions that extend its capabilities, including: Customer Relationship Management, Onboarding, VMS and Reporting solutions.
