How We Chose the Best Open-Source Applicant Tracking Systems
On average, the time between interview and hire is about a month. In that time, recruiters need to keep up with all the application data, including interview scheduling and all the necessary paperwork that needs to be filled out. Open-source application tracking systems, or ATS, provide a centralized data repository, which is crucial, especially when it comes to shortlisting and communication. We chose the best system based on three simple criteria: features, integration options, and reporting capabilities.
Applicant Tracking Features
When it comes to the intricacies of human capital management, juggling all the required tasks comes down to the kind of features it has. Typical software uses search to sift through the resume database for details and can bring up candidate profiles that may be tagged by certain skill categories.
