Overview

Our applicant tracking system is a surprisingly simple way to reach more qualified candidates and track, share, and evaluate their applicant information. Plus, our ATS module works hand in hand with our HR software, so you can enter data once and you're done.

Collaborators can leave comments, rate candidates, and change applicant statuses—all within the ATS. Permissions let you control what collaborators can view, keeping sensitive information (like desired salary) private. The only hard part will be agreeing on a candidate.

  • Intuitive Interface

    Tech savvy or not, the applicant tracking system is easy to use. Your team will have no problem quickly filtering candidates, rating the best ones with a five-star rating system, and pushing job postings to free job boards and social media outlets.
