Who can use an Applicant Tracking System?
Adding candidates, advertising jobs, managing them through the hiring process, communicating with the hiring team, storing and searching hiring related information - just some of the many ways in which recruiters use an applicant tracking system. Recruiters stand to gain the most from using an ATS because it cuts down on time spent searching for information and operations.
ATS can help talent acquisition managers pull up reports and monitor their hiring pipeline. Whether it's pipeline movement or candidate inflow by source, TA managers can generate reports and dig deep to draw actionable insights.
The team that hires together, stays together. An applicant tracking system can help the hiring team stay in sync through the hiring process. They can check in on the candidate pipeline and share their thoughts, without the recruiter having to take the trouble of keeping everyone on the same page.
Most applicant tracking systems come with a referral portal. This means, employees can view open job postings and refer any interested friends and family to them, without having to personally connect with a recruiter and leaving open a chance that the resume will get lost in a mailbox. A referral portal also helps employees stay updated on the status of their referral, without having to personally check up with the recruiter.
