Integrating an applicant tracking system with your enterprise resource planning (ERP) system can be one of the most effective ways to get better visibility into your staff and improve your recruiting process. Here are five ways integrating an applicant tracking system with your ERP platform can benefit your business.
Streamlined Hiring Processes
Following a clear hiring process can enable companies to quickly fill critical positions, while helping to ensure a cogent experience for both candidates and recruiters. Integrating their ERP and applicant tracking system may allow companies to streamline their hiring workflows by implementing paperless hiring processes, simplifying new-hire onboarding, and easily communicating with candidates throughout the hiring process.
A Foundation for Better Analytics
Linking your ERP and applicant tracking system can yield actionable data by simplifying access to historical records, enabling custom reporting, and creating a full audit trail of your recruiting activities.
Amplified Recruiting Efforts
Today’s applicant tracking systems often allow you to promote available jobs through job boards, social media websites, employee referral programs, and notification emails to previous applicants. With an applicant tracking system integration that works with open requisitions, companies may be able to attract qualified candidates in less time by more strategically advertising open positions through a single interface.
Mobile and Cloud Access
On-the-go hiring managers and HR professionals often want the flexibility of mobile and cloud access. Today’s Web-based applicant tracking systems integrate smoothly with ERPs and are accessible from a range of devices, allowing your team to view information from both systems wherever they are — whether it’s at home, the office, or anywhere else with Internet access.
Better Information Management
Integrating your ERP with an applicant tracking system enables the automatic and easy transition of data between systems. Applicant information can be transferred into your ERP for easy new-hire processes. Requisitions can be transferred so your HR team is always working on filling new jobs and you always have the latest information for budget forecasting and other managerial needs. Automatic processing of data helps to eliminate administrative errors and reduce the need to enter data into duplicate systems.
