Applicant Tracking System Interfaces

What you need know about Applicant Tracking Systems:

Let’s start by helping you to understand more about the market. Our favorite analysis comes from the fine team at ONGIG who are kind enough to make it available here: The Top Applicant Tracking Systems Annual Report (2017).

This report ranks the top 99 ATS solutions by market share and you don’t need a Harvard MBA to spot a few key facts.

  1. An ATS provider can make the Top 10 with less than 3% of the market. That means there are a lot of them out there and you never know when you’ll meet up with a new one. You need to be ready.
  2. Homegrown ATS solutions come in ranked at number two. So, brand name ATS offerings aren’t the only thing you need to consider, especially since it's the bigger companies that tend to buld their own.
  3. Comparing this 2017 edition with the 2016 report makes it crystal clear that the old guard ATS providers are losing ground to an incredible number of upstarts. So, things aren't about to get any easier.

One question this report does not answer is why ATS providers prove to be such a big challenge to background screeners. Not to worry, we can fill in these blanks for you. We’ve been working this space for more than 15 years and our resume speaks for itself (see below). In fact, we’ve already connected with solutions that combine for over 65% of the market share numbers in ONGIG’s report.
