Nowadays, when you electronically submit a job application, there’s a huge chance that your resume, along with other information, will go straight to an ATS (applicant tracking system). More and more companies are switching to it so that manually receiving and manually tracking applications using tools like Excel will soon become a thing of the past.

Depending on the ATS’ features, recruiters enjoy the benefits of using one. Freshteam enumerates them as follows: it streamlines recruiting, it posts jobs on multiple job boards, it saves time by automating tasks, it helps build the company brand, it’s manages talent database, it promotes collaboration among users in the recruiting teams, it helps find the right candidate by filtering out candidates that don’t fit the role well, it centralizes candidate management and document tracking, it reduces cost per hire, and it generates key recruiting insights.

How do applicants benefit from when their prospective employer uses an ATS? They are more likely to have great candidate experience because they’ll notice how organized, efficient, and prompt the recruiters are.
