Overall Satisfaction with CATS Applicant Tracking System

We use CATS ATS on both the public sector recruiting and private sector recruiting departments. We use CATS ATS on the recruitment side for posting job orders, creating job advertisements for indeed to scrape and create pipelines. We use it in on the public and private side for Account Management to create accounts for clients, create follow-ups and track all progress with submissions.

On the recruitment side, we use it for screening candidates using the sub-categories such as contacted, screening, interviewed, submitted to the salesperson, sent out to the client, offered and placed. We use it to create follows up on the recruitment side.

It is used to solve tracking business issues with job orders, candidates and job ownership.

I find CATS ATS easier to use then Salesforce, on the recruitment side. It's hard to create pipelines like you can in CATS ATS.
I, however, have used other customized ATS using Microsoft Access.

I have used HRConnect which was developed by a firm I worked for using MS Access. It which was a great tracking and reporting tool. It logged calls out, calls in, length of calls, job orders, candidate submissions and tracked all the status automatically.
CATS ATS is a good tool for creating pipelines, tracking candidate status and connecting with talent. However, it could improve their search features. Searching candidates with specific skill sets.

Example: Developer, with AngularJS and Java development experience.

Also good for tracking emails sent to and received from the candidate if you have your emails configured properly.
