Sneak Peek: Applicant Tracking System from OrangeHRM

Posted in General  by Shaun Bradley 3 Comments

Across industry and enterprise, applicant tracking systems (ATS) help hiring managers and recruiters attract, manage, and hire desirable talent. To streamline the process, reduce costs, and enable you to hire the right person for the job, OrangeHRM is rolling out an ATS system what is code named #ProjectNOVA.

For businesses and candidates, ATS play an important role in the recruitment cycle. As we talked about earlier, a well-designed ATS offers integrated mobile service to all parties. #PojectNOVA offers this—and more.

From job board integration and personality metrics, to interview support and mobile access, #ProjectNOVA has it all. Consider these highlights:

Job board coverage: Integrated with eQuest, a global job posting distribution service, #ProjectNOVA ensures your job posting is available to the right talent target pool. Using #ProjectNOVA, your job opening is available to prospective employees across the country—or around the world—quickly and securely.

Mobile: Mobility means your candidates see your job posting, and interact seamlessly with you—regardless of location. View vacancy and candidate lists, profiles, and analytics on your mobile device or use the interview assistant to compare candidates and conduct a mobile interview.

Web comparison: Integrated with LinkedIn, #ProjectNOVA gathers and displays evaluative information in side-by-side candidate comparisons as your recruitment effort narrows. Interview and other scores are analyzed to help you understand fit and alignment between candidates and your current workforce. Based on captured information, #ProjectNOVA scores candidates for success in your company ecosystem.

Interview assistant: Offering analytic and interviewing support throughout the hiring process, the interview assistant tracks candidate scores, prompts you with interview questions, registers your notes, and tabulates scoring.

Analytics: NOVA has strong applicant tracking and parsing capabilities. Using IBM Watson technology, NOVA creates a personality profile with information collected from Twitter. NOVA seeks patterns, make associations, and offers insight. You gain at-a-glance understanding, through spider web graphing, of basic personality attributes like needs, social behavior, values, or agreeability. At any step in the hiring process, NOVA can create profile comparisons between candidates, or between candidates and existing personnel.

Save time, money, improve your candidate experience—and hire the right employee for your company—with NOVA, the new ATS from OrangeHRM.

Recruitment - How Applicant Tracking Systems can Improve Candidate Interaction

Posted in General  by Shaun Bradley 1 Comment

Applicant tracking systems (ATS) bring a lot of benefits with them as a recruitment tool. The most popular benefit of an ATS is that of improving candidate interaction. Learn how applicant tracking systems can improve interactions with candidates who are interested in your open jobs, by reading below.

Easier Access to Emails

Applicant tracking systems make it easier for companies to contact their candidates via email. Almost all ATS systems on the market today have some sort of email function integrated so companies and candidates can connect with each other. The email feature works just like a personal or business email, but there are some added features. For example, the email systems will allow candidates and companies to upload documents, resumes, create new tasks and even create appointments on calendars.

Mobile Access to ATS

If there is an ATS system on the market today that does not have a mobile app, then we have not found it yet. This is a major benefit for both companies and candidates because the two sides can interact no matter where they are in the world. Both sides will still be able to send emails, upload documents and companies can look at any new candidates entered into the system from the mobile application.

Gauge Candidate Interest

An ATS system is a great way for a company to gauge the interest of the candidate applying for the job. Companies can create automated interactions with all those who apply for open jobs and then begin scheduling interviews with those candidates who respond to the interactions. This helps companies limit the time spent on uninterested candidates, allowing them to focus more time on candidates who truly want to work for the company.

Conduct Video Interviews

Some ATS systems have a video feature. This feature allows companies to interview candidates who are not local to the company via video instead of in-person. This could save the company and the candidate money if the first round does not go well. If the video interview goes well, the company can schedule a second interview, this time in-person with the candidate.

Create Screening Surveys

Another benefit of the ATS system is the ability for companies to create screening surveys. People love to take surveys online, especially when they could lead to a job interview. Interaction with job candidates is much easier when using a screening survey via an ATS.

An applicant tracking system can be a difference maker for large and small companies when it comes to finding new employees. Candidates want to interact with potential employers, and vice versa, which is why an ATS makes perfect sense for companies of all sizes.

Later this year we will launch a brand new ATS module with an integrated interview assistant at our 1st user conference OHRMCon 2015.

Recruiting via LinkedIn - How ATS systems have Integrated with LinkedIn

Posted in General  by Shaun Bradley No Comments

Companies across the globe are taking advantage of LinkedIn and all it has to offer when it comes to recruiting talent. One such way companies use LinkedIn is by integrating an applicant tracking system, which is a software program that allows companies to track their candidates through the recruitment cycle. Here, we will discuss how ATS systems have integrated with LinkedIn to streamline the process.

Single User Interface

ATS systems that have integrated with LinkedIn provide companies with a single user interface instead of using multiple systems. This means that companies no longer have to switch between systems to monitor all of their candidates when job orders open up. This lessens the time spent sifting through candidates and allows the company more time to interact with those candidates using social networking tools found on LinkedIn.

View Profiles on LinkedIn

When ATS systems integrate with LinkedIn it also provides companies with a major feature: the ability to preview candidate profiles on the social network. The entire profile will be available to view, which means companies will get to see a candidate’s work history, education and recommendations all in one place. This acts as a virtual resume that helps recruiters to screen every candidate.

Send Private Messages

Companies using ATS systems that have integrated with LinkedIn will also be able to send private messages to the profiles of their candidates without first connecting with them on the social site. The private messages can be sent from within the ATS system that has been integrated with LinkedIn.

Apply Through LinkedIn

When companies integrate their ATS systems with LinkedIn, candidates will be able to apply for open jobs at those companies. All the candidate must do is connect their LinkedIn profile with the job for which they wish to apply. The company will then be able to see who has applied and view their LinkedIn profiles.

Quick Post to LinkedIn

Recruiters using integrated ATS systems on LinkedIn will be able to quick post job advertisements directly to the social networking site. The quick post feature makes it incredibly easy for companies to post job ads and then monitor who has applied for those jobs. Candidates can also quickly apply for jobs as they are linked back to the ATS.

Better Quality of Hires

A large number of ATS systems have integrated with LinkedIn because doing so provides companies with a better overall quality of hires. Being able to view the LinkedIn profile pages of prospective employees makes it easier to read their recommendations, endorsements and comments from former co-workers and employers.

Recruiting via LinkedIn has become a popular method for companies to find new employees, which is why OrangeHRM has integrated with the social networking site. Take advantage of these features today by using OrangeHRM for your hiring needs.
