Frequently asked questions
What is an applicant tracking system?

An applicant tracking system (ATS) is a software tool that helps organisations streamline and manage their recruitment processes. It allows employers to track, organise, and automate various aspects of the hiring process, from posting job openings to screening and selecting candidates.

What are the main benefits of using an applicant tracking system?

Using an ATS offers several benefits, including:

  • Improved efficiency and time savings in managing job applications.
  • Enhanced candidate management and communication throughout the hiring process.
  • Centralised storage and organisation of candidate data and resumes.
  • Automated screening and filtering of resumes based on predefined criteria.
  • Increased collaboration and streamlined workflows for recruiters and hiring managers.
Are applicant tracking systems effective?

Yes, applicant tracking systems have proven to be effective in improving recruitment processes. They help reduce manual tasks, improve applicant tracking and communication, enhance candidate quality and selection, and ultimately lead to more efficient and successful hiring.

How many companies use applicant tracking systems?

Approximately 75% of large companies and 60% of small businesses use applicant tracking systems to manage their hiring processes. The adoption rates are steadily increasing as organisations recognise the value and benefits of using ATS solutions.

Are applicant tracking systems good for both small and large organisations?

Yes, applicant tracking systems are suitable for both small and large organisations. While large companies often have more complex hiring needs, small businesses can also benefit from the automation and organisation offered by an ATS. It helps them effectively manage the recruitment process, attract quality candidates, and make more informed hiring decisions.

Are there any drawbacks to using an applicant tracking system?

While applicant tracking systems provide numerous advantages, there can be a few potential drawbacks. Some common concerns include compatibility issues, and the need to ensure that the system is user-friendly for both recruiters and candidates. Reach ATS is renowned for its fantastic UI and great integration with existing HR systems.

What is the difference between an ATS and HRIS?

An ATS (Applicant Tracking System) is specifically designed to streamline the whole recruitment process, focusing on tasks such as job posting, CV management, and candidate tracking. On the other hand, an HRIS (Human Resources Information System) is a broader software solution that encompasses various HR functions, including employee data management, payroll, benefits administration, and performance management.

What is the difference between an ATS and a CRM?

While both ATS and CRM (Customer Relationship Management) systems involve managing relationships, they serve different purposes. An ATS focuses on managing the candidate pipeline, tracking applications, and facilitating the hiring process. A CRM system, on the other hand, is primarily used to manage customer relationships, including sales leads, customer interactions, and marketing activities.
