COATS is an ATS, CRM and fully integrated front and back staffing industry solution.  We’re made for you.

COATS Staffing Software is a complete HRIS (human resource information system) that uses multiple modules within one system to manage all functions of HR.  Front and back office capabilities are included in one software, surprisingly also a general ledger, typically lacking in other all-inclusive front and back office software products.

COATS provides a niche solution specific to the staffing industry, only.  There are many HR software systems available to general businesses who need to hire, pay employees, and invoice customers, but COATS does so much more than that – solely for staffing companies.  That’s good news for those looking for a fully inclusive staffing software to run their staffing business.

Even better, COATS Staffing Software checks off all the boxes of the components that should be included in a good HRIS system, according to BerniePortal ATS.  Further, our HRIS has been created for your business, specifically for those in staffing.

What is an HRIS? A human resources management system or human resources information system or human capital management is a form of human resources software that combines a number of systems and processes to ensure the easy management of human resources, business processes and data. Wikipedia

According to BerniePortal, most HRIS systems should comprise of these components:

  1. Applicant Tracking System
  2. Onboarding
  3. Online Benefits Administration
  4. PTO Tracking
  5. Time & Attendance
  6. Compliance
  7. Performance Management
  8. 1095-C Reporting
  9. Payroll Integrations
  10. COBRA Administration

COATS handles these components specifically for our clients, all within the staffing industry.  There are so many nuances specific to hiring temporary, temp to hire and long term temporary employees.  Most companies don’t have to handle thousands of W-2’s for thousands of separate job assignments that last anywhere from one day to years.

Searching and tracking an enormous quantity of applicants and employees requires robust software with unique programming capabilities.  For example, onboarding needs to be quick and efficient considering many staffing firms hire several new employees every day.  How many businesses do you know that interview and hire each day?   COATS was needed and created to handle huge quantities of job candidates, employees, clients, prospects, job orders, payroll, invoicing, and reporting that can tie all of these parts and processes together.

Time and attendance is critical when employees can start any day of the week, do not always work a typical 40-hour Monday through Friday role, can work several different shifts, have varied overtime, double time, wage garnishments and deductions.  Payroll being completed once without duplicated data entry is key, not to mention 1095-C reporting is extremely complex for the staffing industry and having the ability to manage this alone, is an incredible asset.

According to Select Software Review, the features applicant tracking systems offer typically include any or all of the following:

  1. Career site
  2. Job board integration
  3. Application sorting
  4. Resume parsing
  5. Interview schedule
  6. Candidate messaging
  7. Chatbots
  8. Company profile
  9. Reporting and analytics
  10. Cloud storage
  11. Internal candidate portal
  12. Employee referral tool
  13. Search functionality
  14. Team collaboration
  15. Import/Export capabilities

An applicant tracking system is a software application that enables the electronic handling of recruitment and hiring needs. An ATS can be implemented or accessed online at enterprise-or small-business levels, depending on the needs of the organization; free and open-source ATS software is also available.  Wikipedia
