Stop spending hours reading hundreds of CVs. But also stop the endless waiting for feedback from the candidates. Today, Applicant Tracking System solutions help manage recruiting processes efficiently. It is called Applicant Tracking System (ATS), which literally translates means “applicant tracking system”. We are talking about the software that supports the HR division in the recruiting process, from drafting the job description to candidate selection and even onboarding.
Thanks to the automation of long and repetitive activities, it is possible to free up time for Human Resources experts, who can thus dedicate it to more valuable activities, as well as create a better candidate experience. But, before talking about the ATS solutions present on the Italian market, let’s see what the technical characteristics are that distinguish them.
The Technical Characteristics Of An ATS Software
An advanced ATS system presents itself as a SaaS cloud software solution, where SaaS stands for Software-as-a-Service, which means that a provider manages the application via a web browser, and this allows access to all users from anywhere via your PC without the need to install the software.
Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms integrated into the software help in the selection process to speed up operations by guaranteeing a high level of precision, i.e. they help to carry out in-depth analyses of CVs, going as far as analyzing the sentiment of the words spoken in the video interview. But not only.
AI algorithms increasingly support recruiters in the strategic choices of managing recruitment campaigns, and today, more than yesterday, with the developments recorded in generative AI, they can also represent help in the creative part of the creation of the contents inherent to the job posting activity.
Furthermore, the tool can not only be customized, even graphically so, for example, that the candidate, when making his application, does not have the perception of being in an environment external to the company’s official website, but it can also be integrated with the other software that is part of the company’s IT system.
Going into more detail, then, how does ATS software work? What are their characteristics? How do Human Resources concretely assist in the personnel selection process? In addition to the general opportunity to manage the entire selection process from a single centralized system, following an imaginary line traced by the three steps of recruiting − planning, research and Screening, and selection − let’s see how the tool intervenes to support HR:
- Planning: in this first phase, ATS software helps the recruiter in the activities of creating a personalized career page; assistance in completing the job post text; publication of the job post on the company website, on external sites, and social media; analysis of the publication channels with the best response performance.
- Search and Screening: in this second phase, ATS software helps the recruiter in CV classification activities, CV search through keyword filters, CV screening on the basis of set parameters that allow the elimination of prejudices present in human choices, matching between the required requirements and the candidate’s skills, sending automatic messages to inform the person about the status of their application. They also allow you to draw on a proprietary database of people potentially interested in the company to design talent acquisition strategies.
- Selection: in this third phase, ATS software helps the recruiter to plan the interview agenda by sending emails to selected candidates and also to colleagues from other divisions involved, carrying out video interviews thanks to integrated video-communication systems, creating and administering questionnaires with scoring to explore the level of hard and soft skills.
Added to these features are those linked to reporting and the creation of analyses and statistics on the progress of recruiting campaigns in order to outline increasingly effective strategies based on data.
