What is an Application Tracking System (ATS) ? You may have heard the ATS called many different things such as a “Recruitment Database System”, “e-recruitment System”, "Jobmatch", "Talent Management System" etc. For the purpose of this post, I will refer to it as simply an ATS. If I have left any sites or products out, please contact me or leave a comment.
“An application tracking system (ATS) also called a candidate management system (CMS), is a software application designed to help an enterprise recruit employees more efficiently. An ATS can be used to post job openings on a corporate website or job board, screen resumes and generate interview requests to potential candidates by email. Other features may include individual applicant tracking, requisition tracking, automated resume ranking, customised input forms, pre-screening questions and response tracking, and multilingual capabilities.”
