Let's face it, recruitment can be overwhelming. There are a lot of things that need to be considered from storing and keeping track of a company's candidates to things such as job posting, communicating with candidates, employer branding and so on. A lot of the time, all these things are handled manually, but this doesn't have to be this way and here is where an applicant tracking system can come into play.

An applicant tracking system (ATS) is a software application that enables the electronic handling of recruitment needs such as managing online job postings, communicating with candidates, storing resumes and notes for each candidate and job opening, scheduling interviews, collecting interview feedback from a team, and even making offers to candidates. Its main goal is to automate and improve the hiring process of any company, regardless of its size.

If you're familiar with a CRM like Salesforce or Close.io, an applicant tracking system is a similar tool for managing your open positions and candidates in your company. Whether you want to keep track of your hiring process, make decisions based on data or automate as much as possible the repetitive, logistical details of your hirings team efforts, an ATS can improve a lot your chances of hiring the best candidate for your next open position.
