So why is an ATS needed? Because of its many benefits as previously discussed, you need to update your workforce every now and then, and job seekers must be dynamic as well.
This is placing companies under pressure. Company HR management need to periodically evaluate their existing staff. Not only that, they need to conduct recruitment every now and then.
But traditional recruitment entails a lot of logistical expenses, especially if you conduct a job fair in another state or city. Barring the presence of an ATS, you’ll get the wrong people to fill out the job, reducing the quality of the products and services you’re offering.
According to an intelligence report from the American Staffing Association,
“the number of people working at a company, their skill sets, their cumulative cost to the company and their ambition and motivation all combine to create the single most important variable in the success or failure of any enterprise: the staff. A company that can get the right people in the right positions at the right time and at the right price has a tremendous advantage over less astute competitors.”
With this emerging trend, many companies are relying on advanced generation of applicant tracking companies despite the challenging economic climate.
According to a recent posting from Bersin&Associates, ATS grew by 11 percent to nearly $1 billion as of April 2011. The reasons are clear, as we’ve outlined above. Now companies can be competitive in their specialist field.
Unfortunately, not all ATS systems are updated.
Today’s ATS is now an integrated platform which means it is used to track resumes that are posted online and to separate qualified applicants from the unqualified ones. Aside from that, the ATS software can automatically send an email to the qualified applicants to set up for a second round video interview. And before an applicant answers the pre-recorded questionnaire, the ATS software will activate a prompt to orient the applicant his or her duties once hired. Not to mention the most advanced systems that will also build a profile and get all the references completed automatically.
The ATS market is like an arms race. The better the features, the more attractive it is to HR departments around the world.
Therefore, it is not enough that companies have ATS. In order for companies to stay competitive, they should use the new generation of ATS. ATS that uses smart technology just like VidTracking because HR software needs to evolve to help everyone in the process. And with the previously discussed strengths of VidTracking, you can never go wrong. So, what are you waiting for?
