Beyond Features: How to Evaluate an Applicant Tracking System

There is no single piece of technology that’s more universally despised throughout recruiting’s rank and file than applicant tracking systems. The animosity is mostly deserved: these cumbersome, rigid legacy systems are often written on a code base that’s more than outdated.

In fact, so many perils the average recruiter today faces on the talent battlefield can be more or less directly traced to the system that they’re forced to rely on, even at the expense of recruiting efficacy, efficiency and optimal outcomes.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

No matter which startup companies successfully capture the most market and mindshare away from the traditional ATS and HCM providers, the real winners will be recruiters and candidates whose future job searches will be enabled, not inhibited, by the technology powering our processes.

Matt Charney, Executive Editor of RecruitingDaily, leads this webinar to explore what questions you should be asking when evaluating an ATS.

You’ll Learn:

  1. Getting to the root of the issues in the day to day plight of recruiters
  2. Why you should think beyond checking off features, and instead focus on big picture questions when it comes to your ATS
  3. The future of ATS, and the key technology developments that will carry the industry into the next age of recruitment
