Applicant Tracking System FAQs

An applicant tracking system (ATS) is a recruiting automation software that helps organisations streamline their recruitment process by automating various tasks such as job posting, resume screening, interview scheduling, and communication with job seekers.

Besides screening for qualified candidates and scheduling interviews, applicant tracking systems that are integrated with HR software platforms help hiring managers attract and onboard top talent efficiently. With seamless connections between the recruitment software and employment management systems, hiring managers gain full visibility and effortless control over each aspect of the recruitment process.

Certainly! Small to medium-sized businesses can significantly benefit from employing an applicant tracking system to manage their recruitment and hiring process. While some smaller organisations may not have the same volume of applicants as larger ones, an ATS can still help streamline the recruitment process and improve efficiency.
