Why Use Applicant Tracking Software?

An Applicant Tracking System is a software application used by organisations to streamline and automate their recruitment and hiring processes. The primary purpose of an ATS is to manage job applicants throughout the hiring journey, from the initial application submission to the final selection of a candidate.

Applicant tracking systems are valuable for organisations with high-volume hiring, as they can help manage large pools of applicants efficiently. They save time, reduce administrative tasks, and enhance collaboration among hiring teams. Equally, they can benefit organisations with a limited HR function to ensure efficiency of process

Beyond this, tailored applicant tracking software can also support the journey of successful candidates. It can allow for secure sharing of contract, legal documentation and relevant orientation training to ensure candidates are fully ready to start.

About Applicant Tracking Systems In SharePoint

SharePoint is Microsoft’s storage and collaboration platform. While it may be better known as an intranet or document management solution, SharePoint functionality lends itself perfectly to delivering applicant tracking system functionality – typically at a lower price point.

Moreover, when compared to wider applicant tracking software SharePoint offers greater flexibility. There are more options to customise processes to specific recruitment requirements, allowing for a fully tailored solution at a lower cost point than most other applicant tracking software platforms.

SharePoint As Candidate Onboarding Software

Upon successful selection of candidates, SharePoint can also play a valuable role in candidate onboarding.

This functionality isn’t just beneficial for organisational management but also candidates: many successful candidates never begin roles because they change their minds or receive counter offers. So, making your new hires feel involved as quickly as possible can secure your recruitment investment.

Utilising SharePoint’s extranet and document management functionality, organisations can share essential onboarding documents like contracts and policies. SharePoint and Power Automate can also be used to send candidates update email, news and content that can help candidates get into the culture of an organisation quicker.

Moreover, SharePoint can also support internal onboarding tasks. Tracked with customisable workflows, critical onboarding steps from IT setup to HR orientation can be efficiently managed. Relevant teams can then tick off their tasks to ensure everyone is ready for your new candidate’s arrival – making them feel fully welcome.
