See How We Rank on Capterra's Applicant Tracking System Cost Comparison Report

Making investments to improve your business is an important decision. We get it - you have to be sure that the expenditure is cost-effective and proves a clear ROI. The same concept applies to improving your hiring process with an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) -  you want to pick the right one so that you get the best value for your dollar.

Don't worry, that's to be expected - every brand offers different pricing structures, implementation fees, monthly or yearly recurring charges, fees by headcount or users, and other factors that affect the cost. It all depends on the business model.
