Applicant Tracking (ATS) Software Pricing Guide 2022

How Much Does ATS Software Cost?

Applicant tracking systems allow companies, staffing agencies and organizations to automate their talent acquisition and recruiting process with optimized sourcing, more streamlined workflows and customizable functionality such as candidate communications, job board distribution, career sites, multi-channel sourcing, automated task management, team collaboration and structured hiring. In fact, the majority of professional recruiters and recruiting firms will attest to the effectiveness of ATS software in helping screen and recruit better applicants faster.

ATS software pricing can vary depending on the features and capabilities it offers. The cost will also differ according to the vendor and their pricing strategy. Some ATS solutions will cost as low as $1 for every employee per month to as high as $400 per month on an annual plan. If you’re wondering why there’s great disparity in the pricing, it’s because of the pricing strategy that different vendors frequently employ.

Some vendors and service providers will price their product/service based on the number of employees, others will base their pricing on the number of job openings, there are those that use the traditional per user pricing and then there’s the pricing that’s tier-based, i.e. based on the features and capabilities offered in the subscription plan. The billing cycle (monthly or yearly) may also affect the overall cost of the product, with the annual billing option providing you with more cost savings in the long run. This all depends, of course, on how frequently your organization is hiring people.


How is ATS Software Priced?

ATS software pricing can present great disparity depending on the size of the business or organization it’s designed to serve. However, business size is not the only factor that can affect how an applicant tracking system is priced by the vendor.

There are many different factors that can impact the pricing of ATS software solutions, including the number of employees, the number of job boards or job openings, the number of users, the amount of features available in a subscription package and there’s even the pay-per-recruiter pricing strategy designed for professional recruiting firms and agencies.

ATS Software for Individuals

Applicant tracking systems that are designed for individuals, i.e. professional recruiters and headhunters, are typically equipped with the key features that a hiring professional would need to attract candidates, screen them, setup interviews and find the right position or job opening for them on behalf of an organization or their own company. On top of a standard applicant tracking system, this kind of platform will often be equipped with reporting and analytics capabilities, a custom recruiting and pool pipeline, interview kits and scorecards as well as employee referrals and directory.

This category of ATS software will generally have a pricing range of anywhere between $0 (free) and $70 per user/month. Yes, finding an ATS solution that’s completely free is indeed possible. Breezy HR and Freshteam are two good examples of ATS products that are available for free and can support individual users. The Bootstrap plan from Breezy HR is free forever and comes with unlimited users and candidates and all the basic ATS features, but it’s only good for one position or pool. The free plan from Freshteam, on the other hand, is good for up to 50 employees and up to three published job postings.

On the other side of the coin, Crelate Talent’s Professional plan costs $69 per user/month, but it’s specifically tailored for professional recruiters. The subscription includes all the recruiting tools they need to do their job well like a complete ATS solution, basic recruiting CRM (candidate relationship management), job order management, task tracking tools, as well as a few other features like advanced reporting and recruitment application tracking tools.

Small Business ATS Software

ATS software for small businesses can go from $1 per employee/month to $145/month. Yes, the Growth package from Freshteam is only $1 per employee/month, but it carries a $59 platform fee/ month as well. The Breezy HR Startup package costs $143/month, but it goes with unlimited users, candidates, positions and candidate pools.

If you’re a small business that is growing and growing fast, and you need to fill new job roles on a fairly regular basis, then you might be better off with the Breezy HR Startup plan. On the other hand, if you’re an organization that is looking to hire for new job openings from time to time, not really that frequently, then the Freshteam Growth plan might be a more cost-effective option for you.

Other ATS software vendors like TalentLyft, for example, price their plans based on the number of active jobs or job openings. Their Starter plan costs $40.83/month for two active jobs. The package comes with all the talent acquisition and recruiting essentials. If you have say 10 active job openings you need to fill, for example, then you might go with the TalentLyft Starter 10 pack for $124.17/month. This is another pricing strategy you need to consider when evaluating ATS solutions.

Mid-market ATS Software

ATS software for mid-market or medium-sized businesses and organizations tend to have more advanced features and capabilities than those designed for solo professional recruiters and small businesses and staffing agencies. This ATS category is ideal for recruitment-based firms and companies with medium- to high-volume recruitment goals. In software vendors that offer multi-tier pricing plans, this category would be the mid- to high-tier package, which will typically cost from $2 per employee/month to $250/month with flat rate pricing.

Mid-market ATS software products will typically include features like advanced access rights control, branded careers page, GDPR compliance, customizable pipeline stages, multi-language support and anonymous screening functionality. This is on top of the usual functions like full ATS solution, recruiting CRM, portal management, talent management tools, as well as behavioral and background screening.

Some vendors, however, will begin switching their pricing strategy to quote-based at this particular stage. This is to ensure they offer quality and cost-effective plans that fit the unique requirements of their customers. Custom quote-based pricing will often depend on the size of the business and/or the number of employees they have. A good example of this is Lever, which allows prospective clients to create their own personalized candidate experience, from the sourcing stage to rediscovery.

Enterprise ATS Software

Enterprise-grade ATS solutions are quite expensive, but are appropriately priced for large businesses and organizations with bigger needs and equally bigger budgets. Enterprise ATS software is typically priced between $4 and $8 for the per employee/month pricing strategy or anywhere between $80 and $400 per month for vendors that follow the monthly pricing model with unlimited seats. There’s also the per user/month pricing, which ranges from $75 to $90 per user/month. Every one of these pricing strategies have their own pros and cons, depending on the organization’s hiring requirements.

Moreover, there are also enterprise-grade ATS software solutions that are custom or quote-based. This pricing strategy will often require interested companies to contact the vendor directly to ask for a quote or custom pricing. Generally, there’s a minimum number of employees or hiring goals to qualify for an enterprise package. Other vendors, on the other hand, offer custom pricing for all their packages, not just the high-tier or enterprise plans. This is to ensure all business customers will be offered a plan that perfectly suits their needs, regardless of the number of users or seats.

A good example is Greenhouse ATS, which base their pricing on the size of the company and their hiring requirements. All Greenhouse ATS plans, the low-, mid- and high-tier packages, are accessible to businesses of all sizes. So a small business can still opt for the highest-tier plan and get reasonable pricing, because they only get the features and tools that they actually need. This is one of the key benefits of custom pricing, especially when the vendor itself offers features and services a-la-carte, i.e. the customers can pick and choose what they want to include in their custom subscription plan.

ATS Software Subtypes Pricing

Applicant tracking systems come in many different shapes and sizes. One example is Lever and its talent relationship management platform. LeverTRM is not just an ATS solution. It offers a full applicant tracking system along with other key functionalities such as a candidate relationship management solution, as well as diversity, equity and inclusion solutions. This is, of course, on top of the reporting, analytics and visual insights capabilities and third-party integration.

Candidate management is an important module that is not always included in most stand-alone applicant tracking systems available in the market. HR management systems like Freshteam do offer candidate management tools in their subscription plans. Their free plan, for instance, has a candidate application via email function, while their Pro plan for $2 per employee/month has the candidate sourcing extension feature.

Freshteam’s standalone candidate management solution is tailored solely for heavy recruiting pipelines, which is ideal for organizations that want to efficiently organize, manage and interact with their candidates. This candidate relationship management (CRM) is perfectly suited for professional recruiting firms and agencies with high-volume hiring goals.

A job board software solution is also a subtype of applicant tracking systems. It helps businesses and employers post job openings in their organization. It is a tool that is used to advertise vacancies that are available within a company and industry. Job board software is used by businesses of all sizes across different industries to help publicize job postings in an effort to reach a wider talent market. This tool allows SMBs to post job updates on their own business website or through other available channels.

A good software example is Breezy HR, which provides users in any pricing tier with the ability to distribute their listings to over 50 job boards and premium sites. Employers can easily advertise their job vacancies on any and all of the best job sites around the world. They can fine-tune their target audience with premium sites that are tailored to meet a specific role. This function is available in all Breeze HR subscription plans, including the free plan Bootstrap.

Video interviewing platforms are a function that is either offered natively in a comprehensive ATS solution or is available as an add-on. This feature is best suited for businesses and employers looking to qualify more candidates as efficiently as possible. Professional recruiters and HR managers can greatly benefit from this solution, especially in a post-pandemic job market. This will greatly help them streamline and expedite their hiring process as it enables them to schedule and conduct interviews anytime and anywhere.

Avature’s enterprise-grade video interviewing platform enables professional recruiters to perform both on-demand and live interviews. The tool also facilitates interview scheduling, be it for panel video, group or 1-on-1 interviews. Pricing for this Avature solution is quote-based and it can be integrated with their applicant tracking system and candidate relationship management software, while other vendors offer the product for free in their mid- to high-tier subscription plans.

Video interviewing software pricing can also go as low as $30/month for premium plans to as high as $190/month for higher-tier professional packages.


Extra Costs to Consider

There are few extra costs that professional recruiters and employers have to consider when trying to shop for the right applicant tracking system for their business. For a cloud-based product, the implementation, maintenance and customer support costs are often covered by the subscription pricing, regardless of the tier level of the chosen plan. However, the level of customer support including the support channels offered may vary, depending on the subscription.

When it comes to customer support, some vendors will only offer basic or email-based support for their low-tier plans. The mid-tier will get email and live-chat or maybe phone support, while the highest pricing tier will get priority or dedicated customer support. Other software vendors and service providers, on the other hand, will offer full customer support on all channels (email, chat, phone) for all of their subscriptions. This is something that you need to carefully consider when choosing a subscription package, or ATS software vendor for that matter.

If you’re in the market for an on-premise solution, then you might have to think about the implementation and maintenance costs. Some on-premise software vendors will include the training and customer support costs into the one-time licensing fee, which may vary between vendors or service providers. However, in certain cases, the implementation and maintenance costs will be shouldered by the business, rather than the provider.

This usually means that on top of the licensing fee, businesses and organizations will need to take into account the implementation and maintenance costs that normally comes with their on-premise ATS software solution.


ATS Software Vendor Pricing

Lever pricing

Lever has not provided their plans and pricing details to the general public. This is a common practice among many software vendors and online service providers. Interested parties must visit the official Lever website and get pricing details by completing the digital form to request a demo of their full talent acquisition suite. They can also talk to the vendor’s official sales rep to get a custom quote.

Lever’s talent relationship management (TRM) software solution is a complete talent management and acquisition suite, referred to as LeverTRM. It caters to human resources (HR) as well as recruiters and hiring teams for different businesses and organizations. The platform is equipped with full applicant tracking systems (ATS) and LeverCRM, a candidate relationship management solution. It also offers reporting, analytics and visual insights, as well as diversity, equity and inclusion solutions. Users are also given access to Lever’s integration ecosystem.

While the price range is not available publicly, the recruitment software is able to support businesses of different sizes across multiple industries based on its features and capabilities. Lever also offers solution add-ons, which are available à la carte. These include Advanced Automation, Advanced HR, Advanced Nurture and Advanced Analytics. LeverTRM for Enterprise is available for quote-based pricing.

TalentLyft pricing

TalentLyft's applicant tracking software price is based on the number of active job openings in the customer’s company account, unlike other pricing models. There are two pricing plans to choose from: Starter and Pro, while the billing options are monthly and yearly. The Starter plan costs $49/month for two active jobs or $40.83/month when billed annually. TalentLyft Pro starts at $99/month for two active jobs or $82.50/month for the annual billing option. Both pricing plans have a maximum of 50 active jobs per month. A free trial is available for the Starter package.

TalentLyft’s subscription pricing is tiered according to the number of active jobs, i.e. they’re based on a pay-per-job opening basis, instead of the number of users. This pricing strategy is designed so it can serve companies of different sizes, from startups and small businesses to medium and large enterprises, irrespective of their hiring processes. The pay-per-job approach is much more cost-effective than the pay-per-employee pricing, especially for SMBs that don’t really track that many applicants per month. However, the option to go with as high as 50 active jobs/month is what makes this platform perfectly suited for large companies as well.

Freshteam pricing

Freshworks’ HRMS solution, Freshteam, offers simple and affordable pricing with three premium plans and a free version available. The billing options are monthly and annual, with the latter option offering two additional months for free. The premium packages are Growth for $1.20 per employee/month plus $71 platform fee/month, Pro for $2.40 per employee/month plus $119 platform fee/month and Enterprise for $4.80 per employee/month plus $203 platform fee/month. All values shown are based on a monthly billing cycle.

The free version of Freshteam offers basic HR and applicant tracking capabilities that work well for startups and smaller companies. The package is limited to 50 employees and up to three published postings on available job boards. The Growth package offers essential HR capabilities for small and midsize businesses. It supports up to 20 published job postings, plus several other features like job board integrations, time-off approval workflows, HR reporting and analytics.

Freshteam Pro offers workflow automation and HR data management capabilities for growing businesses and organizations. The pricing plan can support up to 100 published job postings and multiple office locations in HRIS. The Enterprise plan streamlines complex HR requirements for larger companies and it’s equipped with everything Freshteam has in store.

Zoho Recruit pricing

In terms of pricing plans, Zoho Recruit has a handful of offerings: Standard, Professional and Enterprise. The Standard plan costs $30 per user/month or $25 per user/month (billed annually). The Professional package is priced at $60 per user/month or $50 per use/month for the annual billing. The Enterprise plan starts at $90 per user/month or $75 per user/month with the yearly billing option. A 15-day free trial is available with no credit card required.

Zoho Recruit has a pricing strategy that combines ATS software pricing and capabilities with candidate relationship management into a robust and cohesive system that automates the end-to-end hiring process of businesses and organizations, regardless of size or industry. The Standard plan is ideal for hiring managers of small companies and staffing agencies that want the basic ATS and CRM capabilities of the platform, such as candidate sourcing, resume management, candidate tracking and basic integrations.

The professional package is best suited for SMBs and staffing firms that require more functions and capabilities from their recruitment platform like better security control, portal management and advanced applicant screening tools. The Enterprise plan is more suitable for larger enterprises that want to get the most out of their Zoho Recruit account.

Breezy HR pricing

Breezy HR offers four subscription plans for you to choose from: Bootstrap, Startup, Growth and Business. Bootstrap is their free option with all the basics for a single position or pool. The Startup plan starts at $171/month or $143/month when billed annually. The Growth package is priced at $299/month or $249/month for the annual billing. The Business plan costs $479/month or $399/month with the annual billing option. A free trial is available, separate from the free version (Bootstrap).

All Breezy HR subscription plans, including the free package, have unlimited users, candidates and customer support, making any pricing plan well-suited for growing businesses and organizations from 10 to 10,000 employees. The Startup package also includes unlimited positions and candidate pools. It is an ideal choice for small businesses and startups that want improved hiring capabilities and better experience.

The Growth package offers automated reference checking, customizable interview guides and employee referrals, among others. It is well-suited for SMBs that want a better hiring process with a growing team. The Enterprise plan, on the other hand, offers the ultimate hiring flexibility and control that scale effectively with an organization’s ever-evolving ATS and recruitment needs.

Crelate Talent pricing

Crelate Talent offers SMBs and professional staffing agencies three main subscription plans and two additional products. Their three core pricing plans are Professional, Business and Enterprise, while the additional products are Crelate Hire and Crelate Deliver. Crelate Pro has a starting price of $95 per user/month or $69 per user/month when billed annually. Crelate Business starts at $115 per user/month or $89 per user/month for the annual billing.

The Enterprise package is intended for businesses and organizations with specialized recruiting needs that only a recruiting software with advanced functions and capabilities can facilitate in a more cost-effective manner.

Avature ATS pricing

Avature has not publicly provided the plans and pricing details of their applicant tracking system. This is a common practice among many software vendors and online service providers. Interested parties must visit the vendor’s official website and get their pricing information by completing the digital form on the Avature “Get Started” page. They can also contact the Avature’s official sales reps to ask for a custom quote and obtain other pertinent plans and pricing details.

The fact that Avature’s ATS software pricing is customized and quote-based makes it a highly flexible platform for professional recruiting firms, SMBs and large enterprises. Avature offers many other solutions, not just application tracking systems and recruiting software. This is probably why they have not made their subscription plans and pricing information available to the public, to ensure every customer gets custom pricing that suits their unique ATS and hiring requirements. Whatever their custom plan is, it has to be equipped with the right features and tools that they actually need and will want to use.

JazzHR pricing

JazzHR offers three main subscription plans purpose-built for SMBs: Hero, Plus and Pro. There are also custom plans that are available for recruitment-based organizations (RBO) and companies with high-volume hiring goals, although the RBO and high-volume plans have pretty much the same pricing. JazzHR Hero has a starting price of $39/month on an annual plan with Hero for RBO and high-volume users starts at $99/month. JazzHR Plus is $229/month on an annual plan, the same as the Plus package for RBO and high-volume users. JazzHR Pro for SMBs, RBOs and high-volume users cost $339/month.

JazzHR offers transparent plans and pricing to accommodate the needs of SMBs, recruitment-based organizations and companies with high-volume hiring needs. The Hero package offers intuitive recruiting that is ideal for smaller teams and recruiting professionals. The Plus package offers a flexible hiring software solution, perfect for users that want to streamline and automate their hiring process. The Pro package provides users with the ability to streamline their recruitment at every stage, with optimization and analytics capabilities.

JazzHR’s SMB pricing is specifically tailored for employers with less than 500 employees that are recruiting to hire talent at their own organization, for a single location.

Workable pricing

Workable offers a monthly pay-as-you-go plan for $99 per job/month. They also offer quote-based annual plans with Core, Growth and Premier. Pricing information for these plans is customized and quote-based so interested parties will need to contact the vendor’s sales team for details.

The Paygo (pay-as-you-go) package offers a self-service solution for businesses and organizations with occasional talent recruiting needs. They will have access to the platform’s essential recruiting features and capabilities, but only when they need them. The is a flexible option with reasonable pricing, for companies with short-term hiring needs. Small businesses and startups that want to recruit new talent for their company will definitely benefit from this plan.

Billed annually, companies will have access to a full suite of applicant tracking and talent acquisition solutions, including premium add-ons. The Core plan is ideal for small businesses looking to expand their workforce. The Growth package provides a complete platform for SMBs looking to recruit talent at scale. The Premier plan offers an expansive talent acquisition and ATS solution for midsize and large businesses looking for quality service.

Greenhouse pricing

Pricing information for Greenhouse ATS is not provided publicly by the vendor, since they offer quote-based custom pricing that is based on the size of your organization. They do provide some details about the different plans they offer, which are Essential, Advanced and Expert. Each of these packages is designed to be accessible to businesses of all sizes. They are equipped with the tools you need to properly implement an organizational-wide hiring strategy that scales with your growing needs.

The Advanced package is well-suited for companies looking to expand their hiring process to include candidate relationship management (CRM), scalable workflows and advanced data configuration.

Conclusion

ATS software pricing may differ greatly when you consider the available features, the number of seats, the minimum monthly cost agreements and the pricing strategy that a vendor utilizes. If you’re a recruiting professional or a small staffing firm with low to average hiring goals, then you may be able to get away with a basic or an entry-level subscription with a pricing range of $1 and $25 per user/month, plus a platform fee per month for some vendors. However, you need to check out the minimum number of seats or monthly costs that the vendor requires.

If you’re a mid-market recruitment-based company or a large recruiting agency with high-volume hiring goals, then you might want to consider a top-tier subscription equipped all the features and tools you might need for your recruitment program. Mid-market subscriptions can cost on average around $50 to $250 per user/month, but these often come with a greater number of seats/users and more advanced features.

Higher-tier plans will require a bigger investment, but they are better suited for bigger recruitment-based firms and agencies with high-volume hiring goals. An on-premise system might also be a good choice for these types of businesses.
