SAP Applicant Tracking


What is SAP Applicant Tracking?

The recruiting process generates a lot of information for recruiters to handle — from resumes to candidate data and more. Applicant tracking systems (ATS) are popular for corralling that information and linking it to important HR systems. SAP applicant tracking can be handled within the SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting module, but there are many ATS options and complementary tools out there.

What is SAP Applicant Tracking?

The recruiting process generates a lot of information for recruiters to handle — from resumes to candidate data and more. Applicant tracking systems (ATS) are popular for corralling that information and linking it to important HR systems. SAP applicant tracking can be handled within the SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting module, but there are many ATS options and complementary tools out there.

ATS often serve as systems of record for the job posting and application process and enable digital management of the documents and data generated along the way. Applicant tracking involves many recruiting functions depending on the product, such as:

  • Job description posting
  • Career pages and job boards
  • Automated resume screening to find best candidate matches
  • Resume storage
  • Interview scheduling
  • Application sorting
  • Analytics
  • Automated e-mails and offer letters
  • Candidate sourcing

There are a wide variety of solutions in the market that offer ATS capabilities. Eightfold uses AI to match clients and automate talent acquisition processes. Phenom aims to create more applicant-friendly candidate relationship management to complement ATS. Docusign integrates with ATS to provide document management. System integrators like Deloitte and Accenture can help with best practices around implementing ATS.

Effective SAP applicant tracking with ATS should cut down on the time recruiting professionals spend reading resumes and sending emails and enable best practices around handling the personal data of applicants.

Key Considerations for SAPinsiders:

  • ATS is a standard for large organizations. With the rise of cloud-based HR tools, even small to medium-size businesses are implementing ATS. With those systems in place and an applicant-friendly job market creating hiring challenges, companies are going even farther with deeper analytics and more candidate-focused experiences. If your company is still using traditional ATS, you may want to look at other measures to stay competitive for top talent.
  • Automate aspects of the recruiting process with ATS and similar systems. For example, automating interview scheduling saves recruiters an average of multiple hours per day, according to Cliff Jurkiewicz, VP of Global Strategy at Phenom. This frees up recruiters to spend more time establishing relationships with candidates.
  • Don’t underestimate the importance of first impressions in the overall employee experience. If you have a smoother applicant tracking and recruiting process, that will reflect well on your organization and be more appealing to candidates.
