What is an applicant tracking system (ATS)?

The recruitment process is time-consuming, labor-intensive, and often quite challenging. From finding potential candidates to onboarding, there’s a lot that goes into it. Fortunately, you can streamline the recruitment process using an ATS system. No more manually reading and organizing all resumes. Welcome to the digital age! And no, we’re not talking about a time-consuming Excel template for collecting all the data, but rather a useful online tool. 💪

What is an ATS system?

With an ATS system, you can track the candidate’s entire application process from start to finish. You can immediately see where each candidate is in the process. You can also use it to screen candidates using filters. Potential candidates can be invited for an interview within the same system. On the Jobtoolz platform, you can even integrate your calendar, significantly reducing the amount of back-and-forth emailing. 📬

Why are more and more HR professionals choosing ATS as their recruitment system?


An ATS system is convenient for managing the application process and is also a powerful tool in the War For Talent. With an ATS, you can post your vacancy on multiple job boards and social media simultaneously. This broadens your reach without costing extra time. Win-win! 🤝

Efficient teamwork

An ATS system is much more efficient than the traditional manual recruitment process. All data is centralized and can be easily shared with everyone involved. This means you no longer need to brief your colleagues about a candidate. Along with the communication history, you can also add additional notes or concerns. ✍️

Better candidate experience

An ATS also improves the candidate experience. The system can send automated emails, immediately informing candidates about the next steps in the application process. These emails are always automatically personalized with, for example, the recipient’s name.

What are the benefits of an ATS system?

Higher qualified candidates
