Applicant Tracking System for Candidate Management

There are many reasons why your company should use an applicant tracking system (ATS) for recruiting and hiring. If you're using multiple software applications and websites throughout the recruitment process, and then having to keep track of status and scheduling in a spreadsheet or project management software, you're wasting valuable time and resources. Additionally, there's an upfront cost for systems and software that might not be cost-effective, especially for small businesses. The purpose of applicant tracking systems is to centralize several tasks in the recruiting process, so that recruiters and hiring managers can save time and money during talent acquisition. ATS software helps companies find quality candidates faster and more efficiently.

The StaffGlass recruiting platform is more than just ATS software. It is a cloud-based subscription service that will empower your company with a highly advanced ATS that also includes remote identity verification, drug and alcohol testing, background screenings, occupational health assessments and e-sign document management.

What is an Applicant Tracking System?

Applicant tracking systems let recruiters and hiring managers automate their recruiting process. A recruiting database allows for candidate tracking throughout the hiring process. ATS software might also include resume scanning, interview scheduling and automated emails. But only StaffGlass incorporates drug testing, health assessments, comprehensive background checks and e-sign document management.

How Does an Applicant Tracking System Work?

An applicant tracking system (ATS) collects and stores candidate resumes in a database so that recruiters and hiring managers can search for desired skills. Some use algorithms to compare the applicant’s resume with the job description. This makes it easier for recruiters to review many resumes, but it might miss candidate experience. ATS software often doesn’t include comprehensive background checks.

Why Do You Need an Applicant Tracking System?

With an ATS, your company can greatly improve its recruitment process. You’ll spend less time organizing and screening applicants to find highly qualified candidates. The best applicant tracking systems will go further, to include background checks, drug testing, e-sign documents and more. The more comprehensive the ATS, the greater the benefits to your organization.
