Why it matters

Since talent hiring is critical for any growing business, a software solution like ATS can manage the entire process to ensure successful hiring. It can also be used in the FP&A process as it offers insights into how successful hiring has been in the past and what is the anticipated rate of hiring as per current job postings. As new employees are hired, this system can be used for headcount reconciliation within a financial plan.
