3 Quick Questions to Help Decide If You Need an Applicant Tracking System (ATS)

Companies can automate their hiring process with an Applicant Tracking System (ATS). While there many factors that can demonstrate your need, or lack thereof, of an Applicant Tracking System, employers with a large number of applicants and/or positions will typically benefit the most. However, even companies with low volume hiring needs can certainly still deliver benefits. These businesses should consider weighing the benefits against the cost and resource needs of starting and maintaining the ATS system.

Here is a list of questions you need to ask yourself to make the decision to get an Application Tracking System:

1. Do you spend most of your time managing the process vs. interviewing candidates?

2. Do you get a lot of applicants for open positions?

3. Do you consistently have a large number of job openings?

  • If you answered NO to all three then there might be better ways to spend your time and resources.
  • If you answered YES to even one question it might be worth at least considering exploring the benefits an ATS can deliver to your company.
