What is the difference between Recruitment Marketing Software and ATS? And why do you need both of these tools to gain advantage in today’s ultra-competitive market?

What is ATS and how does it enhance hiring process?

An Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is a software designed to help HR teams track and manage applications, as its name suggests. An ATS appeared in the nineties, when HR teams’ biggest struggle was managing numerous applications and selecting the best among them.

In other words, an ATS is designed to help HR teams improve their hiring process after they receive applications. As such, it doesn’t help HR teams to tackle the greatest challenge of modern time recruiting — attracting passive candidates.

An overwhelming majority of today’s candidates are passive candidates, who aren’t looking for a job. According to a recent Glassdoor research, 76% of hiring managers admit attracting top talent is their greatest challenge. This is why a new tool called Recruitment Marketing Software has appeared — to help ambitious HR teams improve their hiring process prior to receiving applications.

What is a Recruitment Marketing Software and how does it enhance hiring process?
