Select the right one:

Make good use of free trials:

You should test the software before deciding to purchase it. Manatal gives customers a 14-day free trial, and you can always set up a live demonstration.

Provide employee training:

Before you jump right into a new system, don’t forget that it takes time to adapt. Make sure everyone has access to supporting materials and demos. This step is painless if you choose a user-friendly ATS with easy onboarding.


Never stop asking questions:

Remember, no one is perfect enough to learn everything in a short amount of time. Use the instruction provided by your ATS company, and never hesitate to ask for help from the customer support team. Manatal team is willing to help at any time, in any form.

Value communication:

Don’t forget to spare time to talk to your employees. Open communication will help you better understand the working situation.


Examine results and feedback:

After using the ATS for a while, you should set a date to review the results of your work. Encourage your employees to give you feedback. By doing so, you can see how well the system is contributing to your goals.

Make a change if needed:

If you find that overall output is not meeting predictions, try to find the problem and make an adjustment. For example, you may choose to add employee training or customize your dashboard.
