CATS Applicant Tracking System was first introduced as an open source application. In 2007, the solution was released as a cloud-hosted version.

CATS helps the recruiting firms to manage their entire operations involved in a recruitment life cycle. CATS search engine combs through resumes and highlights keywords. Comprehensive reports can be exported directly to Excel, giving users visibility over the pipeline for a position. CATS is also customizable and can be integrated into any company’s website.

CATS pushes job postings automatically to well-known job boards, such as Indeed and Glassdoor. Imported resumes can be emailed into CATS with the Resume Inbox feature. Once resumes are submitted, CATS automatically parses through them and enters them in the company database.

Since each recruiter’s hiring method varies, CATS offers different add-ons for Outlook, Word and social media. Custom questionnaires are available to screen applicants early on and CATS provides templates for the email blast.

Universally good for companies big & small

Pros

The amount of customization when it comes to records and process flow. I've used this tool working for big companies as well as small and the ability to adjust the tool as needed makes it good for companies of all sizes.

Cons

Perhaps the only thing I would update is the UI - its a little dated but the functionality more than makes up for it.

Comprehensive CRM database for a recruiting firm. Couldn't live without it.

Pros

Customized Pipeline management. The database gives you multiple ways of viewing your pipeline. Combined with calendar integration, they make it easy to stay on top of your list of things to do. Loading in candidate resumes to a mailbox makes it easy to update the database. The capture tool makes it easy to load LinkedIn resumes to the database. The jobs integration to your website is easy to set up. Customer service has been great and the Price is very affordable. It's browser based and works on any platform.

Cons

I don't have have real complaints. They use a voting system to prioritize updates. Sometimes there are a few minor features that I would like to be implemented. But they are adding new features all of the time.
