The most common questions about buying an ATS in the UK


What are the benefits of choosing a UK-based applicant tracking system?


Something as simple as where your recruitment software is based can really impact your overall recruitment success.

The way the US recruits is very different to the way the UK recruits. With customers operating in over 50 countries, we’ve experienced the differences first-hand.

So why should UK companies buy their applicant tracking software from a UK-based vendor?

1) Regional understanding

Most ATS vendors that aren’t based in the UK/Europe (but who are selling into the UK market) aren’t investing the time and effort that’s needed to make their product suitable for the local market.

The UK is typically a small market for them and it’s not just as simple as retrofitting their solution into the UK either—those distinct differences need to be nailed from the outset.

The reality: Your team gets frustrated with their new ATS, and qualified candidates don’t get the experience they were expecting from you.

2) Compliance

UK-based ATS software will be more proactive about maintaining compliant systems for UK data regulation because we’re based here too. You can learn more about how we keep our customers’ data safe here.

3) Support

Vendors that aren’t UK-based, but who sell into the UK market, often aren’t able to invest as much into providing support in the UK as they would if the UK was their primary market.

This means that the support that’s provided, coupled with the time zone differences, is far less than what many UK companies would hope for.

The reality: At best, the support experience is slow and doesn’t reflect what you’re paying.

At worst, when you do finally speak to somebody, they’re not in a position of authority and don’t understand the way your business works, the market you’re recruiting into, or the recruitment management challenges you’re facing that are unique to the UK.


What are the top features of applicant tracking features for organisations in the UK?


Most of the features you’ll find in any applicant tracking system will be useful to UK recruitment teams. But there are a some applicant tracking system features that organisations in the UK will find particularly helpful:


  • Data protection tools: Functionality that makes compliance with local data protection regulations like the GDPR easier.
  • Diversity and inclusion tools: Features like equality monitoring that are tailored to UK best practice around diversity and inclusion.
  • Candidate experience features: Customisable careers page that includes employer brand content. Integrations with regional job boards (in addition to Indeed, LinkedIn, etc.) to connect with the UK’s best applicants. Automated interview scheduling and communications to save time and keep applicants engaged.  
  • Integrations: UK-based applicant tracking software is more likely to integrate well with other HR tools that are popular in the UK for a more user-friendly experience for talent acquisition and HR teams. 

Because many applicant tracking systems have been designed and built in the US, with the US market in mind, the features they offer are automatically geared towards the US way of recruiting.

That’s not always a bad thing, but it’s something to consider when evaluating applicant tracking software for a UK organisation.

Pinpoint and other applicant tracking software providers that are based in the UK sell globally, but because their first customers were in the UK their feature set is often skewed to help UK recruiters.


What is the implementation process and how long does it take?


Together, we’ll review your current pain points and define your goals to understand what you want to achieve. Then, we’ll help you design the ATS that will get you there.

We can tailor your implementation to fit your team’s unique needs. Implementation typically includes:

  • Clarifying metrics of success
  • Reviewing your current setup
  • Configuring Pinpoint to work for your team
  • Importing historic data into Pinpoint
  • Integrating Pinpoint with other tools
  • Training for you and your team

Implementation lengths will vary depending on your organisation’s size and needs. Learn more about implementation, training, and support here. If you’d like to get an estimate for your team, reach out here.
