Applicant Tracking Systems are big investment for your staffing firm – an investment that could be wasted if your team doesn’t know how to use it to its full advantage. It’s important to train your internal staff on all of the system’s bells and whistles and on how to implement the features into their daily tasks. They should receive ongoing training as well so they can keep up with all upgrades and features as they occur.
Choose the Right System
Select an ATS with the features you need to meet your goals. You want at system that makes it simpler to take care of administrative tasks quickly and efficiently so that your team can focus on driving revenue. Don’t purchase a system that is more robust than you need, just because it’s well known. Do look for systems that are scalable as your business grows so that you won’t need to buy a new system if your current one can’t handle your demands.
Choose the Right Partner
Look for an ATS provider with a good training program. They should provide training upon installation, but it should be ongoing. Training should be updated with system upgrades or when you add people to your staff. Simple-to-use online or hard-copy documentation should be made available for users who prefer to learn at their own pace. Look for testimonials and reviews to assess the reputation of your ATS provider among your peers. Other staffing firms will have challenges similar to yours. Their reviews can prevent you from making an expensive mistake.
Keep It Simple
Choose a system that does not have a steep learning curve. Recruiters and account executives tend to have little patience for anything that interferes with revenue generating activity. Opt for user-friendly over complex. The most full-featured system will not benefit your business if people can’t get up to speed quickly.
Ask About Support
Can you get free support outside of structured trainings? What blogs, webinars and other resources are available for your team? These are the little things that can make a product easier to use and increase your daily productivity.
