Cloud-based applicant tracking systems (ATSs) are an essential tool for modern HR teams and recruiting agencies. It provides a database for storing applicant data and job details and a suite of useful tools to streamline every step of the recruitment process. And it centralises all resources necessary for application management and administration.

There are myriad ways in which ATSs streamline the recruitment process and make it easy to manage a massive number of applications. Depending on your organisation’s specific needs, you might utilise custom resume construction, hiring manager collaboration tools and candidate prioritisation features to manage recruitment quickly and efficiently for multiple positions simultaneously.

A Cloud-Based Applicant Tracking System Offers Unparalleled Functionality

Application tracking systems have been around for quite some time, and even locally run systems can reduce the workload and simplify the hiring process. However, to make full use of the best that modern ATSs have to offer, you really need to opt for a cloud-based Applicant Tracking System. Cloud-based software is often referred to as software as a service (SaaS), and it has a number of inherent benefits over locally run solutions.

When you choose a cloud-based ATS, you do not need to invest vast amounts of money and resources in managing and maintaining databases, tools or utilities. Instead, the ATS is hosted and managed at a data centre. The software is paid for on a subscription basis, and all you need is to access the ATS in a web browser and with an internet connection.

You can access a powerful and robust suite of tools from your laptop, tablet or even smartphone and receive instant results. Any updates that are required take place on the cloud, so you can be sure that you are always using the most up-to-date version of the ATS.

With a cloud-based ATS solution, you only pay for the resources you use. As your needs increase and you need to use more resources, whether it be to manage recruitment for a larger number of positions simultaneously or add more administrative users to your package, you can easily upgrade your subscription. Similarly, you can downgrade to a cheaper subscription as your needs dictate.

Streamline Recruitment with a Cloud-Based ATS

ATSs allow you to effortlessly add various stages, tasks or filters to any stage of the recruitment process – from compiling introductory ‘knockout questions’ to categorising candidates and sending template emails to schedule an interview or inform them that they did not make the cut. You can customise your candidate pipeline to utilise a recruitment solution that is a puzzle-perfect fit for your organisation.
