5 Benefits of Using a Cloud-Based ATS

As much of the world takes to remote working, having cloud-based software and systems in place has never been more important.

Cloud, or web-based, software ensures that employees can continue operating in a ‘business as usual’ fashion no matter where they’re working by simply logging in via a web browser. This is critical to ensure that organisations can maintain their normal working practices and processes in the event of an office closure.

Using a cloud-based applicant tracking system (ATS) ensures that your hiring doesn’t have to grind to halt when you’re away from your office. As you can access the software from home, you can continue to review applications and arrange interviews (even if they have to be conducted via video call).

If you’re on the hunt for an ATS for your organisation this year or weighing up the benefits between a cloud-based or on-premise solution, here are five of the main reasons Webrecruit champions cloud-based systems (and thinks you should too!)

1. They’re quick and easy to set up

Installing an on-premise system can take weeks, or even months. On top of the lengthy implementation timescales, these systems often carry hefty implementation fees to cover the work.

On the other hand, many cloud-based applicant tracking systems can be set up in a matter of hours. If you’re keen to get up and running quickly on your ATS, a cloud-based system would likely be the best option for you.

2. They can be accessed from anywhere

Cloud-based options are better suited for the modern workforce. More employees are seeking flexible working options, where they’re able to work from home or on the move. Software that can be accessed from any location and from any device provides this much-needed flexibility.

3. Updates can be easily rolled out

When using a cloud-based ATS, there’s no work to do in terms of installing updates or maintaining the software yourself; your supplier will do it for you!

Updates can be rolled out overnight and all software can be updated at once, in contrast to desktop applications where each individual instance would need to be updated by the user separately.

4. They’re scalable

Cloud-based systems can be updated with new features and functionality all the time, which means there’s endless capacity for them to grow.

Additionally, if you choose an ATS that allows for limitless users and jobs, you’re really futureproofing your options; no matter how much your business or hiring requirements grow, your costs won’t spiral out of control.

5. They allow for easier integrations

Integrating a web-based application with other software is much easier than integrating an isolated desktop application. This means that the possibilities for your software are endless and you can tie your ATS in with your other internal processes and systems. For example, Webrecruit ATS’s open API allows easy integration with other applications.
