Applicant Tracking: Frequently Asked Questions


If you have questions about our applicant tracking tool (formerly known as AppliTrack Recruiting), you’re in the right place! We’ve put together the questions we most frequently hear from school districts who are researching Frontline Recruiting & Hiring.

What is Applicant Tracking?

Applicant Tracking forms the core of Frontline Recruiting & Hiring and empowers school and district administrators to recruit, hire and onboard the best new employees quickly and easily.

How does Applicant Tracking work?

Frontline’s applicant tracking tool manages the entire hiring process online — no more hiring paperwork or long hours spent sifting through a stack of resumes. Job seekers can easily find and apply to positions through your district’s website, and submit any supplemental materials required by your district. You can request or create job postings, track applicant interest at job fairs, advertise openings on social media and popular job boards, review applications, move candidates through the selection process and easily bring new hires on board.

That’s just a taste of what our solution offers — to request a demo and explore the system more thoroughly, just contact us.

Why isn’t it called AppliTrack anymore?

After acquiring Aspex Solutions, we kept the name “AppliTrack.” But as we began to move toward a more holistic set of solutions instead of individual products to support improved collaboration in our customers’ organizations, we found that our old product names no longer supported our goal of offering a single integrated platform. So, we retired the AppliTrack name and replaced it with a more functional descriptor — now, AppliTrack Recruiting is simply Applicant Tracking – an application within Frontline Recruiting & Hiring.

What are some of the benefits of using Frontline Recruiting & Hiring?
