With the dynamism that each industry is turning to and the paradigm shift in customer demand and needs, it becomes imperative to automate the applicant tracking system. Every recruitment agency has its own set of unique business needs that a customized ATS can fulfill.

Albeit, the ultimate objective remains same – Increase in productivity by automating workflows, business processing and faster and accurate communication channels to catapult bottom line profitability! No two businesses have similar business needs! There is no one-size-fits-all solution in any industry, and recruitment is no exception.

To start with, let’s have a sneak peek at the challenges involved in the current staffing industry and the opportunities that an automated ATS can offer!

Challenges Involve and Opportunities

Increasing the database repository of candidates in general

There are several staffing companies still striving to build an adequate Candidate Portal that can hold the candidates resumes via the staffing company’s website. It takes a lot of effort, time and manual productive hours leaving less time for other activities.

A well automated and feature-rich ATS like TargetRecruit can make the task simpler and smoother. It can develop a candidate portal (UI) and start collecting  resumes, cover letters and other related documents instantly from the website and automatically generates candidate profiles without requiring any manual intervention. It can also post open job orders from your system to various online job boards in seconds. 

Effective candidate searches in specific global markets

The entire staffing industry is facing a tough time in searching for the right candidate in given target market. This is where customized ATS can come to rescue. It requires a powerful, accurate and delineated system that can instantly find the potential talent in seconds. Several refined and Boolean searches can instantly bring the right talents before you leveraging enhanced search filters.

Staffing professionals are facing a tough time in expediting the entire process of recruitment these days. Effective ATS can alleviate this processing with a fully automated system including well-defined search functionality, multiple job board integration, and streamlined communications.

Candidates open to external competition

Candidates may be lured by your competitors in case your ATS is not effective. This can again be consolidated by completely foolproof and automated applicant tracking systems that can quickly search and contact potential talents through automated voice and text messaging system. One-click functionality can instantly search, schedule interviews, and notify active and passive candidates for newly acquired open jobs keeping them in your system pipeline.
