Why You Should Be Using Candidate Tracking Tools

Creating A Stellar Candidate Experience

Features To Look For In An ATS

  • Tracks and consolidates candidate application information — Your recruiters need to know exactly where each candidate is in the hiring process without any back-and-forth. With the right ATS, hiring managers can quickly view each candidate’s progress from their dashboard.
  • Provides easy communication with candidates — Your ATS needs to include features like Candidate Texting, Text-to-Apply, and Mobile Apply to facilitate strong, clear communication with candidates, creating an easier application process.
  • Integrates with your existing tools — Job seekers use numerous social media platforms and job sites during their search. Your ATS needs to be able to work across multiple platforms to recruit and engage with top talent where they’re at. Additionally, your ATS should integrate with your existing recruitment tools, keeping information current across platforms and prioritizing candidate experience.
  • Equips recruitment teams with digital interviewing tools — Your organization needs to invest in an ATS that includes features such as Interview Scheduling, Video Interviewing, and Interview Feedback. This helps to automate tedious tasks, saving your recruitment team time and money. With the right ATS, recruiters can spend less time sifting through resumes and more time interacting with and building rapport with candidates.
  • Re-engages with past and passive applicants — A strong ATS is one that stores candidate information to create Talent Communities or pools of previous applicants you can draw from when previous applicants’ skills are a fit for a new job opening. Talent Communities are an invaluable resource since they are already engaged with your company and may already have a relationship with a recruiter.
