When To Buy a New Applicant Tracking System

At iRecruit we frequently field questions from callers, people on demos, and email asking various questions about iRecruit, iConnect or the Work Opportunity tax Credit. We always ask the caller, “what’s prompting you to look for a new Applicant Tracking System?” These are just a few of the responses recruiters and managers tell us about why they are looking for a new ATS.

  • I want to move away from Email, Excel Spreadsheets and Paper
    Yes, even in 2018 HR offices still have to track candidates in Excel, and keeping track of paper files can be a nightmare to manager whether you receive 10, 100 or 1000 applicants per month. Don’t miss out on qualified candidates because you are not able to keep track of them adequately. In addition it can be cumbersome to create reports on paper files and stay in compliance with reporting requirements.
  • I have XXXX system and it’s no longer meeting my needs 
    Whether it’s an in-house system, or another applicant tracking software if your current system is out of date, or does not have all the functionality you require (online applications, creating requisitions, applicant communications, custom application forms, job boards integration, background checks, reporting etc), it may be time to reevaluate your applicant tracking software.
  • I want to be able to eliminate applicants who don’t meet our minimum requirements for a position 
    You receive 200+ applicants for a position that requires a license, for example, but 30-40% of them do not have the required credentials. With iRecruit you can eliminate this issue by asking screening questions to make sure candidates are meeting the needs for your positions.
  • I want to be able to edit my application without asking the vendor to do it
    With iRecruit, you will have the ability to configure the system to meet your needs. That includes the ability to edit your employment application(s) any time you want. You don’t have to call us, though we are able to help, at no extra cost to you.

If you’re current method of tracking candidates or existing tracking system is not meeting your needs, or if you’re budgeting for 2019, or want to get a head start on viewing a new applicant tracking software, contact iRecruit today. We’ll do a no-obligation demo for you so you can see what the options are that work for you. You can also try things on for size with a free 30 day trial.
