Did you say ATS? Behind these three letters, which simply stand for “Applicant Tracking System”, lies a world of opportunities within the framework of an optimal recruitment process. It is a given that technology has become the preferred medium and channel for managers and candidates alike. One thing is certain, regardless of the platform, interface and deployment (and operating) budget considered, the choice of an ATS requires, for a company and in particular for its HRM teams, careful thought coupled with an analysis of short and long-term needs.
Let’s start at the beginning: an ATS is a solution for managing (and streamlining) the recruitment process from A to Z. This means that it allows you to broadcast job offers by multiple channels and to manage, follow and analyze (thanks to a statistics module, for example) all the applications received. It should be noted that the ATS solution can take two forms: either software installed on a workstation, or a remote database – what is known as “SaaS” or “Software as a Service”, a cloud-based distribution model.
