So, let’s focus on how that time can be saved within your 360° recruitment and business cycle.


1. Sourcing

You Can’t Track What You Don’t Have . . . Candidates.

Whether you currently use an ATS or not, there’s no tracking without first sourcing and making your jobs discoverable to candidates.

A well-rounded ATS focuses on all aspects of recruitment and staffing, beginning with sourcing.

Seeking qualified candidates fast and filling jobs is essential to your bottom line. The more positions you can fill effectively, the more you can take on, allowing for growth.

With an integrated 360° ATS and recruitment software, like Tracker, your team can optimize the candidate sourcing process through a series of integrated sourcing techniques and tools.

2. Candidate Experience

The biggest benefit of an ATS is taking all your incoming data from candidates, including resumes, and organizes it quickly and efficiently to build ranked and parsed candidate profiles.

Accurate data is essential for finding the best match for many obvious reasons. And creating candidate profiles manually, or with clunky tech, is a recipe for misinformation or outdated data. Not to mention a bunch of wasted time. Automated resume parsing can quickly take resumes (regardless of format) and build candidate profiles into searchable and matchable data fields.

During the applicant process, one of the biggest missed opportunities are the missed connections with candidates. The communication and experience you give them is essential. Setting a great first impression is key to success placements and future referrals.

According to a recent survey, the number one reason people decline a job offer is because of a negative experience during the interview process. Up to 58% of people declined because of a poor experience.

A 360° ATS (like Tracker) doesn’t just track applicants, but with an integrated CRM your team can create personalized communications and sequences based on your unique workflows and triggers. Additionally, being able to brand and personalize communications without taking more time out of your day is another winning tactic for candidate experience.

Additionally, consider including personalized texting as a part of your candidate engagement. Make sure your candidates don’t miss your communications by having a 360° approach through email, text, and even social media.

3. Follow-Through

What many recruiters and agencies fail to do is see the opportunity in the follow-through. Not only to learn about how you can improve your current processes based on the candidates experience, but also to obtain one very important asset: Referrals.

Referrals offer some of the best ROI in the workplace with often less of an investment to find them. If you are doing #1 and #2 ☝️

Check out these other referral stats:

  • 45% of people employed through referrals stay for more than four years
  • 82% of employers place referrals above other options to yield a better ROI
  • Referrals are 4x more likely to be hired


Who can support you with referrals? The candidates you just placed who (hopefully) had a wonderful experience! And when the majority of candidates are passive, but willing to move for the right company, this could be an incredible source of talent for your team to tap into.

Additionally, following-up is a great way to keep your contracts engaged and employed with your firm, and not your competitor.
