Attracting the best candidates for your organization is one thing, but without an appropriate recruitment process, many recruiters are left feeling overwhelmed. According to Youtern, a large organization like Google receives approximately 75,000 applications per week — and it’s safe to assume that they aren’t sifting through those manually.

Applicant tracking software helps organizations narrow down the talent pool by assisting them in reviewing and ranking resumes before a recruiter sees them. In a report by Work It Daily, 75 percent of large organizations are now using applicant tracking software to help streamline their recruitment process.

To help you find the best solution, we’ve listed Capterra’s top user-ranked application tracking softwares with a five-star rating and a minimum of 10 user ratings.
