This Communication Tech Piece Most Crucial & Overlooked in Recruitment…

Email confirmations.

Automatic, standard with applicant tracking systems (ATS), and easy to set up. Yet, sometimes this is an overlooked feature; especially with teams new to ATS software. Communication with candidates is key to maintaining a positive relationship with the public; even if you are delivering disappointing news to some.

When purchasing an item online, the standard etiquette includes receiving a confirmation email. Money is involved and a transaction took place. Yet, it also confirms that everything went smoothly, and that the ball is now in the company’s court to fulfill the next task.

Although filling out a job application doesn’t involve money spent, it involves money (that can potentially) be earned. Candidates actively looking for work take this very seriously. It is so important to acknowledge their time and effort, and confirm they successfully applied for a position.

No one likes to be ignored…

Acknowledge and appreciate the talented people interested in working for you! Use Pereless Systems applicant tracking software to set up custom email templates. Templates can be assigned to specific recruit flows and set to send automatically to every candidate that enters that flow; which solves the problem for email confirmations for new submitted applications!

Sending a friendly confirmation reassures candidates that their information will be reviewed and they can expect a response. This is an easy and professional way to maintain a positive relationship with candidates.

Maintain privacy while building a talent pool

Teams using the Pereless ATS can create a generic email address to communicate with candidates. This is a great way to build a talent pool and connect with candidates without compromising your personal email. All data is tracked and reported in the ATS!


Pereless users have the flexibility to customize the ATS to best fit their recruitment processes providing candidates a positive experience while relieving recruiters of manual work. In a technologically advanced age, why not use it to your advantage?

Recruiters, Fear Not The AI Tool…

Whether you like it or not, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly becoming a new tool for efficiency.

In the recruiting game, AI is controversial.  Some estimate humans will be replaced with “bots” while others see it as an innovative tool to improve processes across the board.

Pereless Systems applicant tracking software just launched a new AI tool named Intelli-Match that will make recruiting smarter and easier while maintaining (human) recruiters as an essential part of talent selection. 

Intelli-match encourages hiring teams to build “smart” jobs while keeping these elements in mind:

  • Job location
  • Job title
  • Keywords
  • Candidate name
  • Candidate location
  • Employment
  • Education
  • Source

Intelli-match compares these main points to candidate application information to determine best suited applicants based on job data.

Within seconds, Intelli-Match will analyze and rank the candidate pool within a particular job to provide a best-match list. It is also a great tool for gathering important data on team productivity and progress.

Pereless Systems is offering a 3 month trial period to all current and new clients! Interested?

Recruiters, We Have Some Questions..🤔

How many people currently work for your organization?   How many people work within the Human Resource department?  Lastly, as a recruiter utilizing an applicant tracking system (ATS) for job creation and talent management, does your current ATS vendor charge based on company size or per user?  If your hiring team consists of a small group of individuals among a large number of colleagues spread throughout different departments, is it fair to be charged for an ATS based on the number of people working for the organization?

We didn’t think so.

As a leader in applicant tracking solutions for 20 years, the Pereless Systems product has transformed to meet the needs of our clients every step of the way.  Our applicant tracking service charges per user, not based on company size, as it only makes sense for customers to pay based on who uses the system.  We also make it easy for system administrators to control and manage user access, set up new user licenses, and inactive users as needed.

Schedule Update Improves Calendar Management & Workflow

We recently updated our applicant tracking scheduling feature with a two-way Microsoft Outlook and Gmail integration.  Immediately we received positive feedback from our clients as their ability to merge calendars into one platform improved the ability to manage busy schedules and complete work tasks more efficiently.   Our goal is to always provide our customers with continuous innovation, user-friendly functionality, and client satisfaction.

The Pereless schedule and invite tool is a standard yet powerful functionality for calendar management and organization, creating team tasks, and sending interview invites to talent instantly.

Manage Personal & Team Calendars
ATS users can set schedule availability within the system.  System administrators have the ability to view and manage other users’ schedules as well.

Sync Microsoft Outlook & Google Gmail Calendars
Two-way integration synchronizes MS Outlook & Gmail calendars to the ATS with the ability to import and export schedules to one platform.

Interview Invites
System administrators and hiring managers assigned to candidates can send interview invites instantly.  Based on calendar availability setup within the ATS, candidates can accept or reject sent dates and times plus make comments.  Invites can be sent to candidates via email, text message (if applicable), or both.

Team Alerts & Tasks
Once a candidate accepts an interview date and time, hiring managers tasked for conducting interviews will receive an email alert.  Their calendar will also be blocked off for the allotted time.  Tasks and reminders that are needed prior to the interview date can also be sent to hiring teams with a notification email.

Free Text Recruiting Sends Messages To Multiple Candidates Instantly

In our previous article, we introduced our text recruiting functionality that comes standard and free with our applicant tracking system.  More recently, we’ve added a “mass message” feature that allows hiring managers to send text messages to multiple candidates instantly.

How It Works

Within the message center, ATS users select the “mass messaging” tab.  Selecting an active job and specific recruitflow will automatically pull up candidates that live within that flow and who have opted-in to receiving text message communication.  Selecting a candidate’s name will automatically pull up their profile for review if needed.  Then, create a customized message and send a text to all within the listed area instantly.  It’s that simple!

mass message


Statistics:

  • People in the United States on average check their phones 46 times in a day.
  • People of ages 18-24 years old check their phones around 74 times per day; the most compared to other ages.
  • Most check their devices during leisure time or while shopping.

Considering the data, text message recruitment can serve as an effective communication tool to contact talent and get quicker responses for scheduling interviews, setting up calls, or simply building rapport that could reflect a positive company culture.  Most companies charge fees for the ability to text recruit, however Pereless Systems applicant tracking solution offers this service for free.

Free & Unlimited Applicant Tracking System Users 🙌

As a leader in applicant tracking system (ATS) solutions for over two decades, we understand that Human Resource (HR) professionals heavily involved in recruiting may be required to communicate with individuals outside of the HR department. Whether it is getting an offer approval from your finance department, sending a job approval to marketing, or sharing an internal E-form, it shouldn’t cost your business extra money to complete tasks involving individuals outside of HR.

That’s why our ATS user matrix includes Recruit Team Members.  These are free and unlimited individuals added by administrators simply by including their first and last name, plus business email address within system settings.   Recruit Team Members never log into the ATS, yet can receive emails to review, accept, reject, and comment on candidate profiles, offer letter and job approvals, and internal E-form documentation.


A cost effective ATS doesn’t mean quality sacrifice.  Schedule a demo and we’ll prove it.
