If you work in recruitment you probably receive hundreds of CVs and/or applications a day, but how many of those immediately grab your attention prompting you to invite them for interview? My guess is not a lot. So here is where the idea of implementing an applicant tracking system (ATS) comes into play.
An ATS does all the sifting and sorting work for you, so you can avoid been overloaded. You set up your application for potential candidates to fill out and the software will scan and separate them using a grading system that identifies the top candidates for you.
Here are some key reasons why your business needs an ATS.
An ATS is intelligent enough to help find candidates
If you are not inundated with CVs and applications then you will need to find some candidates. Some ATS platforms proactively go out and hunt for the ideal candidates for your positions. Getting your business on this track now will ensure that you find great people in the future.
An ATS saves you time and money
An ATS really takes much of the reading and sorting out of your hands. This allows you to focus less time and funds on recruiting and more on getting your business up and running. Much of the initial screening time (and time equals money!) can be eliminated with an ATS.
An ATS will build up a talent pool over time
Most of the time, you'll need numerous people for the same position. For example, if you are looking to hire and build a sales team, you’re probably not just looking for one salesperson. You might need many people at the same level. When you need a position like this, or even a new opening, you’ll have easy access to quality candidates in your database collected through your ATS. Every company looks for ways to decrease costs and increase productivity, an ATS offers this.
