SmartSearch(r) Expands Mobile Recruiting Capabilities

Enhancements to industry leading Applicant Tracking System by Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. create new possibilities for today’s on-the-go candidates and recruiters.

Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS), the maker of industry-leading SmartSearch® recruiting business software, announces new mobile optimization.

“We’re excited to see more and more of our clients taking advantage of SmartSearch’s great functionality for mobile recruiting that allows them to access vital data from virtually any handheld device,” offers Doug Coull, CEO of APS. “And now job candidates are reaping the benefits as well. And we go beyond the typical limited functionality mobile app.”

Although mobile apps for iPhone or Android are included with SmartSearch®, and the system supports almost any hand-held device, on smart-phones and tablets, users are also able to access their complete fully functional database—not a stripped-down mobile site. This allows recruiters, sales/account managers at staffing agencies, and hiring managers alike to stay up-to-the-minute, as they review open jobs and candidates at any location through SmartSearch’s self-service web portal.

Customers can also now choose a valuable add-on “mobile optimize” option to enhance the Career Center on their SmartSearch site. This allows job seekers to conveniently apply for positions from their phones using an existing online profile from Monster, Indeed or LinkedIn. Candidates that have activated the popular “job-alert” feature are able to click through to apply without recreating a resume or filling in cumbersome online forms—a great way to make it easy for today’s candidates on the go.

“SmartSearch was one of the first applicant tracking systems to offer mobile capabilities—back in the days of flip-phones,” Coull adds. “We were also one of the first to develop a mobile app, and excited last year to add the ‘mobile optimize’ option to our clients’ Career Center. It’s a great example of our commitment to continuous improvement and keeping our clients at the leading edge of current trends with upgrades in technology.”

SmartSearch® recruiting software is best known for the ability to seamlessly integrate with existing systems and applications for managing all employment-related information from one easy to use interface.
