Applicant tracking software, or talent management systems, are
designed for tracking job applications and manage resume data throughout
the recruitment cycle. They may even be a component of a broader human
resource information system. In plain english, they allow companies to
better manage applicants and resumes.
For small and medium sized businesses, many of these solutions are
cost-prohibitive. And there's still the need to advertise for positions,
steer candidates to one's website and short-list for interviews.
The CanHELP Employment Network does incorporate key principles of
applicant tracking directly into our platform - logging notes about
experiences with job seekers, storing related communication and applying
statuses to determine where in the hiring cycle an applicant is.
