gatherDocs Mobile Applicant Tracking System Simplifies Application Process

Solution Optimized for Retail and Service Industries

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - September 10, 2013) - gatherDocs, a leader in mobile recruiting software, today announced its mobile applicant tracking system. Specifically designed for the retail and service industries, the mobile applicant tracking system provides a seamless solution for both job applicants and HR departments.

With the increase in smartphone usage, job seekers today look to use their phones for everything, including applying for jobs. However, many retailers and service organizations dealing with high volume and turnover are not equipped to offer mobile applications. The gatherDocs applicant tracking system, though, streamlines the application process for candidates, and the tracking and interviewing processes for HR departments.

To apply for a position, candidates can utilize the gatherDocs "Now Hiring" signs that are posted in the retail or service location and either text the custom code to be sent a link to the application or simply scan the QR code. Upon scanning the QR code, candidates will be brought to the mobile job application for the specific retailer or service organization. Candidates also have the option of visiting the retailers' website and applying via an "apply" link.

"Filling out an application should not be difficult or time consuming," said Alex King, CEO of gatherDocs. "This is the first impression an applicant will have of the processes in place at a specific retailer or service company. In developing the gatherDocs mobile applicant tracking solution, we wanted to consider both the applicants' needs as well as the HR department."

For HR departments, specifically those in the retail and services industries, the gatherDocs mobile applicant tracking software acts as an all-in-one tool. For these industries, in particular, HR departments are consistently sourcing candidates for a variety of positions at multiple locations. With gatherDocs, these HR departments are able to see all of the submitted applications and are able to easily sort the applications based on various key parameters for the retail and service industries such as the retail or service location and a candidate's hourly availability.

"In speaking with our customers, many HR departments expressed concerns with the associated costs and time spent on hiring new employees," King said. "With gatherDocs, we eliminate the costs surrounding the management and organization of paper applications and help HR departments focus on expanding their company through talent acquisition."

The gatherDocs mobile recruiting software also organizes applicant workflows so HR departments can obtain all of the information on the status of an application. Additional features include email capabilities, allowing for HR departments to flag applications and resumes and send them to store managers, and customization options such as pre-set or manually chosen pre-screening and application questions.

gatherDocs offers a competitive pricing model and is contingent based upon a retailer or service company's needs.
