Whether you operate a small, medium, or large agency an Applicant Tracking System[1] (ATS) will streamline your processes and allow you more time acquire talent. There is always a cost when adding a new system and ROI, customization, and usability are all concerns of recruiters when considering an Applicant Tracking System. However, the addition of such a system used to manage recruitment and hiring processes may be just what you need to succeed.

Improved Communications

The ability to centralize your communications is one of the biggest advantages of an applicant tracking system. You will no longer need to use spreadsheets, and lost e-mails will be a thing of the past. Centralized communication can give recruiters, in the field, the same level of access to your candidate information, as it does to those sitting in the office. Recruitment marketing will benefit from a system that can use Social Media, such as Facebook or Twitter to search for viable candidates. Connectivity to CareerBuilder, Monster, Indeed, and websites such as LinkedIn are also supported giving you a large pool of possibilities when searching for job candidates.

Increased Efficiency and Productivity

Staffing can be an issue in any agency and a Tracking System offers features such as task generation, resume parsing, and e-mail integration. A fully automated system will eliminate the time-consuming task of data entry, so recruiters and office staff will have more time to place candidates. Aligning candidates with positions that are suited to their talents is more effective when using an Applicant Tracking System.

Level the Playing Field with Competitors

If the competition is using an ATS to recruit and you do not, then you are at a distinct disadvantage. The ability to communicate while in the field is one advantage to the system and allows recruiters the ability to see candidate’s information, as they apply. This gives recruiters the advantage of having candidate data while standing in a client’s office and may help place more candidates, faster.

Scalability for Future Growth

As you grow, your ATS needs to grow with you. Scalability is a feature that agencies should look for when choosing applicant tracking software and systems. Customization and the ability to adapt to your growth and workload should be prime considerations when adding ATS to your business.  

It is Time to Move up to an Applicant Tracking System

Save Time, Money and Increase the number of Candidates you place with ATS. Over 200 people apply for every job that is posted and managing these job candidates can be overwhelming. With ATS, you will become more organized, efficient, and will help you place more candidates than you thought was possible.
