Background Screening Integration into Applicant Tracking Systems

Integrations Free Up HR Staff to Focus on What They Do Best: Human Capital

With employees often overloaded in today’s do-more-with-less workplace, a smart way to streamline operations and free up staff is to automate the background check process. Yet, for many organizations, it can be hard to know where to begin. Integrating background checks into your Applicant Tracking System (ATS) or Property Management System (PMS) is a good start. Background screening is automatically kicked off when triggered by these systems, eliminating the need to manually order individual requests for your candidates. Likewise, reports needing further review are also flagged within the primary ATS or PMS your employees use every day. In a word, for more effortless screening: automate.
