Applicant tracking systems (ATS) can help your company build candidate pipelines, handle recruitment needs, and find the best talent possible.

Read on to learn more about the UKG ATS solution, as well as how our team of consultants can help you.

What is an Applicant Tracking System?

Applicant tracking systems (ATS) help organizations manage the recruiting and hiring process in a more efficient way. ATS software not only helps managers find the top talent within their candidate pools, but it also simplifies the applicant tracking and organization, filters applicants based on their individual skillset or experience, and improves the experience for current and future employees.

ATS software enables organizations to…

  • Automate recruiting, hiring, and onboarding processes to save time
  • Foster career development from hire to retire
  • Reduce time-to-fill for essential positions
  • Store and access critical employee and business data in a single solution
  • Leverage artificial intelligence (AI) to sort, review, and organize resumes
  • Integrate with key HRIS processes, including payroll, benefits, compensation, scheduling, and employee performance

How Does the UKG Applicant Tracking System Work?

The Ultimate Kronos Group (UKG), formerly Kronos and Ultimate Software, offers a top-of-the-line ATS system that helps businesses of any size and industry transform their recruiting, hiring, and onboarding processes to facilitate better candidate engagement and improve process efficiency.

When a position comes available in your organization, job requisitions can be submitted to the applicant tracking system and postings for available positions on internal and external sources. The ATS system then sifts through resumes and ranks them based on keywords, skillsets, and other business-specific criteria to improve the efficiency of your applicant selection process.

The UKG applicant tracking system is also used as a communication channel between recruiters and candidates to keep everyone informed and up-to-date throughout the hiring process. And, even better, reports can be generated based on ATS hiring data in an attempt to identify weak points and improve the recruiting, hiring, and onboarding process.

Main Advantages for Your Company

Improved collaboration: Applicant tracking systems provide the functionality needed to improve collaboration not only between team members, but also among other members of the departments across the entire organization. With an ATS, users can send messages, schedule campaigns, assign tasks, and give feedback to candidates to enhance engagement and cooperation.

Configuration: UKG’s applicant tracking system helps recruiters configure job postings, create requests for meetings, edit job descriptions, analyze data from a wide range of candidates, and send offer letters within a single solution. This not only helps improve the hiring experience for candidates, but it also helps organizations reduce time and cost-to-hire.

Improved quality of new hires: Applicant tracking capabilities within UKG offer a more proactive and efficient recruiting process to ensure companies attract top talent from the start. The UKG applicant tracking solution helps companies stay ahead of the competition by attracting and retaining the highest-quality staff possible.
