Problem

Lack of Applicants and Organized ATS

Having multiple facilities at various locations meant that more effort had to be placed into hiring, especially for their warehouse positions. Since LaSalle Bristol is widely known in their industry, having been founded way back in the 1900s, they had no problem attracting applicants. However, a problem that they frequently faced was the lack of qualified applicants - those that could carry out the job requirements with minimum training.

Additionally, their influx of applicants came from multiple job portals. Using outdated methods, it was difficult for them to keep track of individual candidates and respond to each swiftly. Hence, LaSalle Bristol started looking for an all-in-one applicant-tracking-system (ATS) that could help them conduct hiring at a fast and efficient pace.
