Three Important Features in Recruitment Software

HR Tech Outlook | Tuesday, January 26, 2021

Without looking at the most critical features, many recruiters select a recruiting program that leaves them with a middle-of-the-road technology that does not serve their needs.

Fremont, CA: With the advent of technology, there are many ways for the applicant and the recruiter to communicate with each other, including mobile devices and websites. For recruiters, the key is to focus their attention on instruments that can help them interact with the right talent.

But with so many options available on the market for recruiting software, it becomes difficult for a recruiter to choose a tool with the right set of features to help you efficiently solve the hiring challenges. Here are three features any good recruitment software should have:

Extensive Analytics & Reporting

Analytics and reporting allow you to assess team performance based on the criteria of recruitment you have defined. Analytics also provides you with insights to make your recruiting process quicker and more efficient. Track and calculate, for instance, how long it takes to close an open position for one recruiter. You will find ways to reduce this time and close jobs more easily with that data. You can not optimize what you can't track, so advanced analytics and automated reporting are a must-have in any recruiting program.

Automated Candidate Sourcing

You can recruit far more applicants than you can manually with the automated or semi-automated candidate sourcing features of your recruitment software. These features could include the ability to import candidates from any website using a browser extension in just a few clicks or the ability to import candidates in bulk and allocate them during the import process itself to unique work pipelines. One of the most tedious and time-consuming tasks for any recruiter is to add candidates in software, and any automation here will go a long way in freeing up your time so that you can concentrate on evaluating candidates.

Automated Email Communication

One of the most critical aspects of the recruiting process is email correspondence. Using personalized email templates, good recruiting software can often promote automated transactional email correspondence. All you have to do is set up your email templates and start sending emails once for each notification. A customized email will be automatically sent to all the stakeholders the next time you shortlist an applicant for an interview or make an offer to a candidate.
