ATS Advice from the Fusioneers

In the competitive world of driver recruiting, having an efficient Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is no longer a luxury—it’s a necessity. Your ATS can make or break your hiring process, affecting everything from candidate experience to the quality of your final hires. Elevate your recruiting game with these powerful strategies to optimize your ATS: 

Master the Art of Cost Negotiation 

The first step towards ATS supremacy is ensuring you are getting the most bang for your buck. Negotiating costs with your ATS provider can open opportunities for additional features or discounts. Do not settle for a one-size-fits-all package; any product worth having should cater to your unique needs. Not sure what you should be spending? Find a partner (like Fusion Now) whose exposure to multiple systems and cost structures allows a 1,000-foot view that helps you from being overcharged in challenging markets. 

Make Your ATS Work for You 

At your company, you are the driving force behind every decision, and our role is to ensure your Applicant Tracking System (ATS) aligns seamlessly with your unique business processes. While some regulations must be strictly followed, it’s crucial to identify your non-negotiable business practices early on. This understanding enables us to tailor the ATS to enhance your recruitment workflow, prioritizing efficiency and simplicity for both your team and candidates. Remember, customization options may not always be apparent, so asking specific questions and expressing your needs clearly is essential. We are here to help you navigate these choices, ensuring that the system works for you, not the other way around. 

Train for System Success 

A powerful ATS is useless if your team can’t use it effectively. Good system? Great. Well-trained staff? Magic. We focus on understanding how your team utilizes the ATS and provide targeted training to maximize its potential in your recruitment process. Remember, without the right training, even the best systems can underperform. Our goal is to empower your team to leverage the ATS successfully, ensuring it becomes a powerful tool in your recruitment arsenal. 

Ensure Utilization of Paid Features 

Many companies pay for premium ATS features but fail to utilize them to their full potential (or at all!). Ensure your team is taking advantage of all the bells and whistles your ATS offers. These features are designed to enhance efficiency, so make the most of your investment by utilizing them to their fullest extent. And if you don’t need the feature, don’t pay for it! 

Check for unused funds and invoice errors monthly; one client saved $1,200 in 10 minutes by adjusting their service. Don’t overpay or underuse! 

Uncover Hidden Gems in Your Recruiting Toolbox 

Your ATS should be a treasure trove of recruitment tools. Do not settle for the basics—explore new products that can add value to your process. Fusion Now’s ATS Advisory experts can provide insights into useful tools you might be missing, helping you stay ahead of the curve in the competitive talent market. 

Bonus: Monitor and Customize Landing Pages 

Choosing the right ATS partner is crucial. A visually appealing, user-friendly career site matters more than some might think. Monitor and customize landing pages regularly to create an engaging candidate experience from the start. Beware of ATS providers disguised as marketers, as they may pose additional risks.

Optimizing your ATS is not a one-size-fits-all task. It requires a strategic approach tailored to your company’s unique needs. If you’re looking to take your recruitment game to the next level, consider letting the Fusioneers take a look at your ATS. Don’t just settle for a “free” job store; invest in refining a tool that transforms your hiring process and helps you build the dream team of drivers your company deserves. ATS is a key part of your puzzle, but only one of the cogs in the wheel. Let’s make sure it fits perfectly.
