Applicant Tracking Technology with Recruiters in Mind iCIMS’ Recruitment and Applicant Tracking Solution is designed to provide recruiters with a wide range of features. The key is that all candidate data is housed within a single database and accessed through a standard platform that can be configured to meet specific needs. Each iCIMS database is automatically populated when candidates enter their information into web-based job portals. iCIMS’ career portals can be branded to match existing corporate websites for a consistent candidate experience. Candidate information is collected in specified formats with set fields for data consistency and instantly available within the system for internal review.
Users can review and report on candidate data with various permission levels and leverage a variety of search parameters. Candidate data is also stored and accessed in compliance with EEO, OFCCP, ADA, and international hiring laws to mitigate risks regarding data collection. The applicant tracking system also includes a communications center through which users can send targeted, scheduled emails to prospective employees to retain engagement and maintain relationships. All of this is achieved with paperless processes that utilize electronic forms and portals to help companies remain eco-friendly as well as save money and speed up previously manual processes.
