HR Glossary / Applicant Tracking System

An applicant tracking system (ATS) is a type of software that handles recruiting and hiring needs by allowing employers and recruiters to easily collect information, organize and filter applicants, and keep track of the recruitment process.


What Does an Applicant Tracking System Do?

Applicant tracking systems facilitate recruitment by automating several processes such as job posting and applicant screening to identify the most qualified candidates. They may also generate interview requests automatically and provide collaborative tools.

Applicant tracking systems are commonly adopted to save time through automation, increase the productivity of the hiring team, and streamline the application process to improve the experience of the candidate.
