What is Applicant Tracking (ATS) Software?

Applicant tracking software (ATS) is used by human resources professionals to better manage the entire recruiting process - from applicant searching, to screening, interviewing and hiring. These solutions allow you to manage large amounts of job applicants by sorting and filtering candidates based on pre-defined filters. They also provide a secure platform to store and backup key applicant information, including resumes, cover letters, screening tests, interview notes and progress reports.

When HR teams, recruiters, managers and employers are faced with large volumes of incoming resumes, these can be narrowed down based on the criteria you set using your applicant tracking system. This might include filtering by former employment, years of experience, grades achieved, schools attended and certain skills, abilities or certificates attained.

Applicant tracking software (ATS) not only helps to reduce the number of curriculum vitaes "CVs" you need to read, but can also provide an overview of the total number of CVs received and organize them in a logical way. Applications and resumes can be searched within the database using key terms and specific filters. This archiving makes it easy to compare like-for-like CVs, as well as to retrieve previously received CVs for new job openings.

Data is not only pulled from resumes and applications, but can also be garnered from other sources, such as social media platforms. Data protection features form a common part of most applicant tracking systems, helping you ensure you meet legislative requirements.

In addition to data mining, many applicant tracking systems help to attract the right candidates by helping to create job posts and bulletin boards. These features can be useful for making job positions available to internal candidates on a corporate career site before recruiting externally.

Many of these solutions also facilitate the training and onboarding of new candidates, providing features such as background checks, interview and training tools. These solutions also provide collaboration tools for team members and managers such as note leaving and commenting on the progress of interviews, training and on-boarding.

Applicant tracking systems often form part of larger HR software suites, as well as forming integrations or add-ons with talent management solutions. These applications can be beneficial to agency recruiters, large enterprises and small businesses alike.

Who is the ranking for?

This ranking is for business owners and decision makers looking for a first glance at the leading cloud-based Applicant Tracking (ATS) software in the industry. The data serves as a point of reference highlighting the key factors that small businesses should look at when first analyzing a piece of software. These factors include user perception (reviews), compatibility (integrations and mobile app availability), market presence (media presence), and security features (security).

For more details on why we chose these data points, take a look at our industry research reports, which provide in-depth explanations of each data point, as well as trends in the industry.

How are the scores calculated?

An app’s score is calculated based on five unique data points and is completely independent of any relationships that GetApp has with app vendors. The data points are calculated as outlined below:

User Reviews

The score for user reviews is calculated using a Bayesian estimate, which is a weighted average that includes the number of reviews and the rating of an app, benchmarked against other apps in the category. This raw number is then scaled to represent a value between one and 20.

Integrations

Integration scores are calculated by scaling and adding two different averages for the number of listed integrations on GetApp: the first 15 points are awarded for the total number of integrations scaled against the average for the top 25 percent of apps in the category, while the final five points are awarded for the total number of integrations scaled against the leader in the category.

Mobile Platforms

Mobile platform scores are calculated using data from Google Play and the Apple App Store. Five points are awarded for having an Android App, and another five for an iOS app. The additional 10 points are calculated based on the user ratings of the app in each store, rated out of five, for a total of 20 points.

Media Presence

Media presence is calculated using the number of Twitter followers and Facebook fans a vendor has. Each social network contributes a maximum of 10 points to the total score. The first five points are awarded for total number of followers scaled against the average number of followers that each vendor in the category has, while the remaining five points are awarded based on the total number of followers, this time scaled against the category leaders. The scores for Facebook and Twitter are added together for a total score out of 20.

Security

Security is calculated using answers from a vendor-completed survey. The questions in the survey are based on the Cloud Security Alliance self-assessment form as part of the Security, Trust & Assurance Registry. With 15 questions, each answer is assigned a point value based on vendor response, with additional points given for security certifications, for a maximum possible score of 20.

In the event of a tie, each data point is weighted for importance, with security taking precedent, followed by reviews, integrations, mobile apps, and media presence, respectively.
