ATS HR software streamlines HR processes

An Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is HR software designed to streamline the recruitment process by automating tasks related to managing job applications and candidates. Large companies always have one, small and medium companies often do not and use Excel. The platforms comes with basic ATS functionality included in the platform. Here are 10 key functions typically found in an ATS:

1. Job Posting Management

ATS allows recruiters to create and manage job postings, including specifying job requirements, responsibilities, and qualifications, and posting them to multiple job boards and career websites.

2. Resume Parsing

ATS automatically extracts relevant information from resumes, such as work experience, skills, education, and contact details, and stores it in a structured format for easy retrieval and analysis.

3. Candidate Screening

ATS enables recruiters to screen and filter candidates based on specific criteria, such as education, experience, skills, and qualifications, to identify qualified candidates for further consideration. The platform does this based on shared work values.

4. Candidate Tracking

ATS provides a centralized database for storing candidate information, including resumes, applications, correspondence, and interview notes, allowing recruiters to track candidate progress throughout the hiring process.

5. Communication Management

ATS facilitates communication with candidates or between recruiters through email templates, automated messages, and scheduling tools, ensuring timely and personalized communication at every stage of the recruitment process.

6. Interview Scheduling

ATS offers scheduling tools that allow recruiters to coordinate interview times with candidates and hiring managers, send calendar invitations, and manage interview logistics efficiently.

7. Collaboration Tools

ATS enables collaboration among recruiters, hiring managers, and team members by providing features for sharing candidate profiles, feedback, and interview evaluations, facilitating informed decision-making and collaboration.

8. Reporting and Analytics

ATS generates reports and analytics on various recruitment metrics, such as time to fill, cost per hire, source effectiveness, and candidate quality and work values, enabling recruiters to track performance and optimize their hiring processes.

9. Compliance Management

ATS helps ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements by tracking and managing candidate data, maintaining audit trails, and providing features for managing Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and other compliance-related documentation such as GDPR.

10. Integration with HR Systems

ATS integrates with other HR systems and tools, such as HRIS (Human Resource Information System), payroll software, and onboarding systems, to streamline data exchange and ensure seamless integration with the broader HR ecosystem.


Large companies want fully integrated ATS functionality in one platform, but small & medium companies, who are still using Excel for their hiring processes might consider to handle these tasks, testing on values as the first step.
