Applicant Tracking Comparison Chart

It's no secret that business processes are becoming increasingly automated, but hiring managers are arguably the happiest to have the solution of applicant tracking systems (ATS). The hiring process can be a grueling task and incredibly time consuming, so ATS softens the burden by posting job openings on your career page or job boards, screens resumes, and generates interview requests to potential candidates. Some other features include pre-screening questions, source tracking and even integreated background checks.

According to research done by human-resources consulting firm Bersin & Associates, the average cost of hiring a new employee is $3,479. Businesses looking to cut down their hiring costs are starting to implement applicant tracking systems. With exception to phone and face-to-face interviews, this software can essentially handle the entire hiring process for your business, saving both precious time and money.
