Capterra has just released the results of an industry-first survey examining the impact of recruiting software and applicant tracking software on the hiring process.

Though it’s become standard to use such tools among staffing firms and for internal hires, few studies have looked at the actual impact of recruiting software tools across the recruiting industry.
Recruiters and HR professionals are supremely tech-savvy, however, and our five question survey revealed a broad adoption rate with deep levels of satisfaction across solutions.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Fully 75% of recruiters and talent management use some form of recruiting or applicant tracking software.
  2. Of those, the vast majority, 94%, say software has improved their hiring process.
  3. Only 5% of HR professionals who use software think it has a negative effect on their organization.

How has recruiting or applicant tracking software affected your hiring process?
