  • What is the point of recruitment software?

    Recruitment or recruiter software consolidates processes that are otherwise completed manually by a true-blue human team member. As a general term, this can mean many different things and it's important to prioritize your business needs when choosing the best recruitment software for your company.

  • What is the point of applicant tracking software (ATS)?

    Applicant tracking software tracks candidates through their application and placement processes. As one of the processes that is not efficiently handled manually, applicant tracking through their lifecycle with your recruiting team is key to measurable success, as well as to a positive experience for the candidate.

  • What is the point of vendor management software (VMS)?

    Hospitals and health care facilities certainly have many vendors providing services and products to them. In healthcare staffing specifically, hospitals and health systems can be their own managed services provider (MSP) or hire this out to another vendor. Vendor management software consolidates processes from each sub-vendor or sub-contractor's applicant tracking software (hopefully they use one, otherwise they are out the door in most cases).

  • How does recruitment software compare to applicant tracking software?

    A recruitment software suite will include marketing features, since recruiting is essentially a sales and marketing role. An applicant tracking software is functionally based on tracking applicants through a specific start-to-finish lifecycle.

  • How does recruitment software compare to vendor management software?

    Recruitment software is intended to accommodate the sales and marketing aspects of a recruiters methods. A vendor management software is going to take information from vendors and organize it in a way that is usable, analytics driven, and with multiple permission controls so a managed services provider or central staffing office for a health system can efficiently process contingent labor.

  • How does applicant tracking software compare to vendor management software?

    This is the most frequent question we receive as providers of a hybrid system that includes applicant tracking software and vendor management software functionality. In short, a vendor management software is going to combine the data from applicant tracking software (one or many) into one interface for effective processing. A VMS also supports tiered releases of job needs, or filtered distribution of open positions.
