Features in Focus

Database search and talent pooling

With Hireserve ATS database search, you can use key features such as:

  • Intelligent search with context. CVs and application documents can be ranked based on relevancy and weighting.
  • Instant CV and document view, without the need to download.
  • Searches can include keywords based on synonyms, helping you to simplify searching of unstructured text CVs and documents.

With intelligent database search features, you’ll not only save time on sifting through high volume applications but also ensure you can identify top talent quickly and effectively.

Hireserve ATS enables you to go beyond ‘applicant tracking’: Build and nurture talent pools, mine skills and qualifications you need with our uniquely powerful ‘Talent Search’ tool, and tag candidates’ skills, experience and location.

Configurable application forms

Hireserve ATS enables you to build your own application forms to suit different roles and hiring processes.

You may split your application process into two stages, or may add in ‘Killer Questions’ or ‘Job Specific Questions’ to aid your screening process and filter out high volumes of unsuitable candidates.

Your application forms will be mobile-optimised, to make sure you don’t miss out on candidates on-the-go.

Why not allow candidates to apply with LinkedIn? This quick and simple tool takes and converts an applicant’s LinkedIn profile into a CV format and populates their application form automatically with the relevant information.

Ultimately, you want to build quick, simple and effective application forms so that you engage and retain candidates throughout the process. With Hireserve ATS, you can do exactly that.
