Over the past few years, countless customers have asked: “When is Gem going to build an ATS?”

Then they’d add commentary like, “You’re already making the ATS better in so many ways… why don’t you just go the last mile?” 

Or, “Gem is way easier to use than our ATS, and we wish it were all under one roof.”

With the strong pressure talent acquisition teams are feeling to do more with less and consolidate technology, now is finally the right time. Gem ATS will be available in 2023, and you can join the waitlist today.

In this post we’ll cover all the details:

  • What’s coming and when?

  • How will Gem ATS be different?

  • Can I still use my current ATS with Gem? (short answer: yes!)

What’s coming and when?

  • Today: Join the waitlist to get early access and be the first to know about product updates.

  • Later in 2023: The first version of Gem ATS will be designed for companies with standard recruiting needs, which tend to be small and mid-size companies.

  • Early 2024: Gem ATS will be ready to support larger companies with more complex recruiting processes, in the ballpark of a few thousand employees.

  • Beyond: Stay tuned for exciting new releases on a monthly basis!

How will Gem ATS be different?

1) Simplicity & usability

We’ve heard from so many of you that your ATS is clunky and you just don’t love it. We’re putting the recruiter experience first, just like with the rest of Gem, where 94% of users say the product improves their productivity. That means minimizing clicks, creating beautiful, intuitive user interfaces, and showing the right information at the right time – all without sacrificing configurability and scalability for sophisticated recruiting processes. 

2) The best all-in-one hiring solution

An applicant tracking system is core infrastructure, like the foundation of your house. It has to be rock solid and scalable, but what makes the house great is everything on top of the foundation, like the kitchen and bedrooms. That’s where the other parts of Gem come in – our ATS will be part of a bundle that includes other best-in-class recruiting products like Sourcing, CRM, Talent Marketing, and Analytics that Gem is known for.

3) Speed of innovation

We’ve heard from many of you that other ATS providers aren’t innovating, and you feel stuck. Many are owned by private equity firms and focused on getting the most out of what’s already built rather than investing in product development. Others are part of much broader Finance or HR suites where the ATS is an afterthought. We encourage you to join our early access program and follow along to see how fast we move.

4) Scalability

Your ATS should never limit you. As you grow and your recruiting processes evolve, you need the flexibility to align your technology to how you work. Gem is designed to scale with you, offering workflow automation that empowers recruiters to efficiently manage high volumes of candidates. Our platform already handles the largest databases of candidate records, and our experienced support and services teams specialize in supporting the complex needs of large enterprise customers.

Can I still use my current ATS with Gem?

Yes! If you prefer to use Gem with Greenhouse, Workday, SmartRecruiters, Rippling, or any other major ATS, you can still do so. Check out our integration directory for a list of all the ATSs Gem integrates with.

Gem’s non-ATS products will continue to be built in an ATS-agnostic way so that you have ultimate flexibility in your tech stack. But if you use everything from Gem, it’ll all work better together, similar to Apple products. Think of an iPhone that can connect to any Bluetooth headphones, but pairs with Airpods instantly.

In addition to a more connected experience, you’ll get cost savings with Gem’s all-in-one bundle that your CFO will love.
