Equipping yourself with dedicated software is the best way to digitize your hiring process. But do you really know what an ATS software (Applicant Tracking System) is? How will digitizing your recruitment process improve both your employer brand and the productivity of your recruiters? Let’s take a closer look at everything you absolutely need to know before making the decision to equip yourself.
Here’s the first question to ask yourself: What is the purpose of digitizing your recruitment process?

Let’s see how an ATS recruitment software is used at each stage of Inbound Recruiting.
The first step in an inbound recruiting strategy is to attract candidates and select the right profile!
Attracting candidates is a challenging mission for recruiters, especially in the current talent shortage and increased competition. To overcome these difficulties, employer branding has become omnipresent and is one of the keys to increase the volume and quality of applications.
Once the applications are received, the next step is to preselect them correctly and swiftly to ensure a smooth candidate journey.

The second step in an inbound recruiting strategy is to convert candidates into collaborators. To achieve this, it’s essential to provide an optimal candidate experience!
Optimizing the candidate experience and converting new recruits is one of the most crucial challenges for HR professionals. However, it’s not the simplest task to accomplish. With increasing competition and a candidate journey focused more on the human aspect, it has become complex to meet the expectations of talent and find the ideal profile.
The good news is that our recruitment software is designed to automate numerous tedious tasks while ensuring a good quality of interaction between recruiters and candidates. With great utility in pre-qualifying and qualifying candidates, ATS software offers a range of features to streamline your recruitment process.
With such time savings, no talent will slip through your fingers!

Employee retention is the ultimate step in an inbound recruiting strategy to integrate and engage new hires with your brand! After all, the average cost of recruitment exceeds €5,300. Failing to retain employees means investing in vain.
To achieve this, the onboarding process plays a crucial role in ensuring that new hires identify with your values and company culture.
Personalized welcome, responsive communication, mentorship programs, and talent tracking are just a few measures to make candidates feel at home!
Beyond onboarding, employee engagement in various company activities, including the recruitment of new team members, is essential to maintain a sense of belonging throughout their tenure within your organization.

Accelerate your recruitment with Beetween
Analyzing your functional needs is key to increasing the chances of recruitment success.
The number of recruitments influences the automation needs and, therefore, the cost of your recruitment ATS subscription. Additionally, using an ATS software may not be cost-effective for fewer than 20 annual recruitments.
Multichannel job posting is the foundation of a recruitment ATS. Ensure that the ATS software you select meets this requirement. Don’t hesitate to contact a sales representative regarding this matter, as many ATS software providers do not disclose the full list of integrated job boards. At Beetween, we consider all requests for integration with new job boards, but not all ATS software providers offer this level of connectivity.
Depending on the type of profile you are looking for, you may find yourself in two opposing situations:
Here, you need to list all the people involved in the recruitment process and their roles. With Beetween ATS software, we configure different types of licenses to better tailor access based on each user’s role. The best practice is to answer the following questions:
This way, you will have a clear idea of your user needs.
Time wasted on posting job offers on various job sites, CV screening… List all the issues you encounter in your current recruitment management. This will help you prioritize your needs.
Do you manage multiple brands or entities? Do you need to manage one or more different recruitment processes within the same tool? Do you need to integrate one or more approval workflows before starting recruitment? These aspects involve highly customized software solutions. Not all recruitment ATS software offers this level of adaptability.
Most ATS software providers offer career pages, but not all offer fully customized career sites that highlight your employer brand. What are your requirements in this regard? Are you satisfied with a simple page, or do you need a tailor-made solution to showcase your employer brand?
One of the most significant advantages of digitization is the ability to integrate tools. Can the ATS software connect with the tools you already use? Does it need to replace them?
The framework of your project is your best friend when identifying the added value of the project while aligning the necessary requirements for its implementation.
Now that you have asked yourself all the relevant functional questions, you need to prioritize your needs to find the right balance between budget, usability, intuitiveness, and functionality. We recommend creating multiple categories and organizing all your needs by category, assigning simple importance items such as:
This way, you can assign a score to each need, weighted by its importance to you. This will make it easier for you to compare different ATS software options on your list.
Have your recruiters already used ATS software? Are they comfortable with computer tools in general? Do you need to train managers as well? Beetween’s recruitment ATS software offers various types of training: on-site, remotely, monthly beginner training accessible to all clients, video tutorials, and online user documentation.
The more extensive your functional needs and customization requirements, the higher the configuration costs and the selected ATS software‘s overall cost. Define your ideal budget, as well as your maximum budget. This will help you quickly establish a shortlist during your search.
Choosing a SaaS ATS software, such as Beetween, significantly reduces the delivery time as it requires no installation on workstations. However, another factor comes into play: customization of your accounts. The more extensive the customizations, the longer the configuration time. Take this into account when requesting customization.
