SmartRecruiters Announces ATS Upgrade Program

Program offers buyout of existing contract to reduce costs and accelerate path to Hiring Success

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (June 9, 2020) – SmartRecruiters is incentivizing talent acquisition leaders to drive technological change. The company is excited to announce the Applicant Tracking System (ATS) Upgrade program, a stimulus package designed to help businesses that want to take advantage of the hiring slowdown to upgrade their ATS and reduce costs. With an estimated 300 million jobs lost globally in recent months (source), job demand and hiring needs will rise as we return to work. Companies who modernize their talent acquisition function and streamline costs will be better equipped to meet the new economy’s hiring needs. To further incentive businesses to make the switch now, the program offers contract buyouts and zero transition costs.

“Most Talent Acquisition leaders have wanted to upgrade their outdated ATS for years but didn’t have the time while hiring at a frantic pace. Now they have the opportunity and this program makes it a no-brainer financially to improve their hiring,” says Jerome Ternynck, Founder and CEO of SmartRecruiters. Customers also agree: “To us, SmartRecruiters means accelerating our success to grow our business by giving us quality, control, reduced costs, and an improved candidate experience,” says the Head of EMEA People Transformation at Colliers International.
