Want to Use Applitrack? Here’s Your Checklist for Finding a Compatible ECM

Many companies now want to use Applitrack for tracking job candidates and comparing and contrasting their skill sets. Applitrack helps school districts streamline and improve the outcomes of their recruiting processes; however, a major challenge in implementing Applitrack is getting it to work with an organization’s enterprise content management (ECM) system.

Not having an ECM that is compatible with Applitrack is a problem many companies don’t know they have until it’s staring at them in the face. Usually they’re already trying to integrate Applitrack and blockers in the process start piling up to the point where the IT manager will start questioning whether completing the integration is even possible.

We’ve seen this scenario play out with our customers more and more lately...and it’s one of the reasons why Imaging Office Systems will be rolling out our own tools in the coming months as part of the launch of a larger, comprehensive cloud services offering.
