Applicant Tracking System (ATS)

An applicant tracking system, commonly referred to as an ATS, is a software application that enables the electronic handling of a company's recruitment needs. An applicant tracking software allows an organization to collect and store candidate and job related data and track and monitor the process of candidates through all stages of the hiring process.

Applicant tracking software 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 include pre-screening questions, source tracking, and source effectiveness reports and resume process tools.

iCIMS web-based applicant tracking system offers robust reporting and a centralized location to store and track open positions and candidates. iCIMS can also reduce your time to hire and cost per hire while reducing your paperwork and providing your company with a branded career portal.
