Application Tracking Software

From Frustration to Success: Tackling the Top 7 ATS Pain Points

| By Andy Wigderson

The staffing and recruitment industry has undergone significant changes, primarily driven by incredible technological advancements. Today, recruiters are no longer bound by manual processes, paperwork, and phone calls, but instead are able to leverage comprehensive software solutions that wholly upgrade business operations. Although significant strides have been made with applicant tracking systems (ATS) and recruitment technology, there is always room for improvement and advancement as business needs continue to shift and change over time. Because of this, TargetRecruit prioritizes educating companies on the current gaps and pitfalls of common ATS solutions on the market today.

During our initial software evaluation process, we always ask potential clients to identify their biggest pain points with their current applicant tracking systems (ATS). Our primary focus is to assist our clients in overcoming any gaps in their existing ATS solutions. Through our experience working closely with clients and through these conversations, we have gained invaluable insights into the recurring challenges faced by our industry over the past several years. 

Uncovered, one of the biggest challenges faced today is working with applicant tracking systems (ATS) that are incapable of being tailored to specific business needs. As a result, we compiled a list of the top seven pain points across the board and quickly discovered they are some of the most significant challenges shared by many staffing and recruiting firms worldwide.

The top seven pain points for staffing and recruiting firms when it comes to their applicant tracking systems (ATS):

  • Reporting
  • CRM | Sales & Business Development
  • Integrations
  • Automation
  • Customization
  • Configuration
  • Middle Office
