If you are familiar with ATS and how it makes a recruiter’s life easier, the only thing that might stop you from implementing is the cost. Is access to an ATS platform the only cost you have to bear? What other expenses should you take into consideration?
To use any recruitment software, you need a laptop or a desktop computer with an Internet connection. But you already have that, don’t you? So we can skip to the next point. 🙂
You need one, obviously, but which one to choose? Go for the ones in the software-as-a-service model, as they require no installation and are always up to date at no extra cost. Providers allow you to select from a variety of plans, depending on the number of users in your company that will have access to it. Some offer more custom solutions than others. Good providers also offer a free trial, so before you pay anything, you get a chance to test the software and make sure it works for you.
Access to external services
To fully benefit from recruitment software, you need to use external job sites, such as Indeed, Monster, Pracuj.pl or Teamio, to publish your job advertisements. You also need access to services such as SMSAPI to send customized text messages. But, since you’re in the HR business, don’t you already have a paid access to such services? If so, implementing an ATS will not be an added cost to your business.
Your time and effort
It’s priceless, we know! And, after an easy implementation, an ATS will automate most of your mundane tasks, making your job much more efficient. So in the long run, by freeing up your energy and being able to get more done, you will actually be saving time, effort – and money!
When planning to implement an ATS into your work routine, take into consideration the above-mentioned costs. Check what you already have and won’t have to pay extra for. You’ll find the added cost isn’t much and is totally worth it for what you’ll save in time and energy! To see the specific costs of an ATS platform and available plans, check out our pricing.
