The Applicant Manager (TAM) product overview
The Applicant Manager (TAM) is a cloud-based applicant tracking solution that helps recruiting agencies and teams streamline their hiring and onboarding process. The solution lets users track job postings and actively engage quality candidates. TAM provides tool sets allowing recruiters to review, select, and share applicant information within teams.
TAM lets users post job details on multiple free and paid job boards, including Indeed, Glassdoor, and Monster. Companies can also link their social media channels (such as Facebook and LinkedIn) with TAM to post job updates. Recruiters can configure rules for screening and pre-screening applications to automatically remove under qualified applicants or duplicate entries. TAM provides advanced features to search or filter applicants by using keywords, ratings, skills, tags, or a combination of these.
TAM integrates with major email service providers like Gmail and Outlook for centralizing contact and communication details. With TAM, recruiters can collect and store confidential applicant data, including EEO, disability, and VETs details to comply with OFCCP regulations. The onboarding module allows users to design and share the onboarding process with new joiners.
The solution can be accessed using a web browser of any internet-enabled device, including smartphones.
Pros of The Applicant Manager (TAM)
- TAM differentiates itself from the competition with a high level of customized service and support, including a free “white glove” implementation process designed to help users experience a quick start-up time so they can be in the software and benefit from its features as soon as possible.
Cons of The Applicant Manager (TAM)
- Presently, TAM does not integrate with payroll providers. However, users can export pertinent data out of TAM and then import it into their payroll software or HRIS. In addition, while TAM connects to the major job boards, it does not integrate with smaller, more local job boards.
