Statistics Prove Why Mobile Is A Must For Applicant Tracking Systems

Technology is constantly changing due to innovation, and applicant tracking systems (ATS) have certainly been influenced in recent years.  One of the prime project focuses for ATS companies in 2016 was adding mobile functionality to platforms.  Besides major client demand, the data surrounding smart devices and mobile usage is in large part responsible for it becoming a top priority.  At this point in technological history, if the ATS vendor you are using is lacking in mobile functionality, consider it an “outdated” system. Here are some key points highlighting why optimizing applicant tracking with mobile functionality is key for recruiters in the candidate review process:

  • 81% of Americans text regularly with 6 billion messages sent each day. 
  • 95% of text messages sent are read within 3 minutes of receipt. 
  • 33% of American adults prefer text messaging to all other forms of communication.

ATS OnDemand’s applicant tracking software is equipped with text messaging capability allowing recruiters to communicate with applicants on their mobile device.  Career sites and applications are also mobile-friendly so candidates can apply easy using their phone.  Learn more about our mobile-responsive ATS system here!
