I’ve covered several topics in my posts that were aimed towards helping decision makers select the right applicant tracking system. Each of these posts, with a bit of modification, could really be applied to any sort of solution. The purpose of software after all is to simplify processes, reduce costs/time, and align objectives with overall organizational goals. I have never seen a vendor that promised their solution would drain your money and cause you headaches, however, I see this all of the time. This is the very reason that guides, reviews, white papers, and suggestions exist.
In an effort to select the right solutions, you most likely will start with a quick search online. As part of your search you might have come across a company named Capterra
. This is a great site that focuses on listing a large number of available solutions specific to industries, size and a large amount of other types of filters. However, one aspect of the site that you might have missed was the Software Buyer Resources
page. This page contains some excellent information that can help you with selecting the right solutions, and this can certainly applies to applicant tracking systems. If you are currently in the market, or will be in the future, I suggest reviewing this page to expand your understanding of different considerations.
Best of luck!!!
