Applicant Tracking

Snap up talented candidates without cutting corners

To recruit the best employees you need a process that is quick and easy for both applicants and hiring managers, while making sure all the relevant checks and balances have been completed. You also need to make sure that every stage of that process is completely on-brand, to immerse applicants in your company culture from day one.

Meet Your Challenges

  • Hire the best quickly and securely with a flexible, fully branded, fully digitised process.
  • Eliminate the risk of recruiting applicants without the right eligibility to work, and ensure GDPR compliance with secure identity checking.
  • Keep control of your applicants with candidate information not being shared with competitors.
  • Build your own talent pool with promising candidates, only accessible to your business.

Key Benefits

  • Drastically reduce the time and cost of hiring new staff.
  • Eliminate paper with a fully digital process, including electronic signatures.
  • Safely decentralise recruitment, with approval workflows that give a ‘safety net’ to hiring managers and make sure all relevant steps are completed.
  • Immerse applicants in your culture from day one with fully branded content and communications.



Digital dashboard to ease applicant tracking and speed up the recruitment process.


Digital Dashboard

The Problem
Paper-based recruitment processes take too long which means you might miss out on the best talent. It’s also difficult for everyone in the process to keep on top of where they are, and what to do next.

Our Solution
Your hiring managers use the fully branded and intuitive digital dashboard to search, filter, screen and manage candidates, and get an overview of trends, issues or opportunities. Everyone can see where they are and what needs to happen next, which speeds up the whole process.

Job Board Integration

The Problem
If your application process is long and complex, you’re less likely to get quality candidates applying for roles. You need a process that is as quick and as easy as possible to complete.

Our Solution
We have integrations with all the major job boards and we’re constantly adding to the list. Processes are streamlined, and candidates can move through the application without having to duplicate information, which reduces drop-off.

Vacancy Creation

The Problem
Managers need to fill vacancies fast, so lengthy creation and approval processes only bring in unwanted delays. However, you need to balance this with the right controls to make sure the right information gets promoted outside.

Our Solution
With pre template job descriptions, vacancies can be created with a click of a button. Permissions control who can edit what, which keeps the relevant controls in place without delaying the process. And with our integration to the most well-used job sites, you can post direct to job boards from within the system.

Right to work checks

The Problem
Right to work checks need to be a quick and easy part of the recruitment process, but ID checking often results in photos of passports or personal data being left on managers’ phones which risks GDPR non-compliance.

Our Solution
Secure identity checking via our app, not via the manager’s phone, ensures the applicant’s personal data is kept secure and transferred at the right time. And with checks being completed in around 20 minutes, you can get a response before the interview has finished.

Applicant Scoring

The Problem
Sifting through all applicant information to find the best talent takes a particularly long time. And with time being in short supply for managers there’s a risk that good candidates slip through the net.

Our Solution
You can screen applicants using whatever scoring system you need, allowing managers to quickly identify the strongest candidates. Different actions or responses can be weighted in different ways so you can find the candidates that are the best fit. You can even integrate third party psychometric tests to provide an even clearer picture.

Bespoke Applicant Processes

The Problem
In hospitality, a one-size-fits-all approach just doesn’t work. You need flexibility to get the information you need, and ensure the best fit of candidates to your company culture.

Our Solution
We help you scope out the number of roles and application processes you need, and then build the processes the way you want – as long or short as you like, and as complex or simple as needed.

CV Parsing

The Problem
For candidates that speculatively drop in their CV or come in through an agency, you need a way to quickly and easily bring them into your recruitment process and make sure you’re not duplicating data.

Our Solution
Fast, efficient CV parsing is core to how our solution manages data. CVs can be uploaded so the relevant information is extracted and included in the application, with candidate duplicate alerts.

Talent Pool

The Problem
Great candidates can come your way, but might not be the exact fit for what you’re looking for at that particular time. If they’re simply discarded then you miss the opportunity to recruit top talent in the right role at another time.

Our Solution
Manage your talent in a way that gives them a positive brand experience, adding good candidates to your private talent pool to return to at a later date. Our multi-level candidate search capability means you can find the best local talent, and keep them notified of opportunities.


The Problem
Paper-based, manual recruitment processes make it difficult to see exactly what’s happening with roles and candidates. And gaining insights into your recruitment processes requires manually bringing data together.

Our Solution
Our reports give managers total visibility of the recruitment process to monitor, measure and track your recruitment at every stage. Spot changes in habits before they affect your recruitment volumes, and gain valuable insights with correlation of ATS, HR and labour productivity data in Fourth Analytics.
