GradConnection chats to Grad App about their cleverly designed app, how it started, their involvement in the Top100 and what makes them a leading graduate-specific application tracking system

Grad App

What exactly is Grad App?

Grad App is an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) which gives your applicants a seamless, fully branded and customised experience from application form to offer. For you and your business it provides quick, user friendly access to real time application and recruitment data via our unique live dashboards. It is Australia’s first graduate specific ATS designed to improve accuracy and save huge amounts of grad managers time.

When and why did Grad App start?

About 5 years ago we saw (and heard!) a lot of frustration in the graduate market due to the high cost of recruitment systems and often their inability to be flexible with customisation and functionality specific to the unique needs of the Graduate Market. Using our combined knowledge of the recruitment, design, software development and the Graduate Industry, we saw an opportunity to build something that truly has a positive impact. So, we developed a web app that is customised to fit your needs, is cost effective, capable of saving you time and has the ability to report in real time, all whilst showcasing your brand (not ours!).

No doubt we needed Grad App... but what drove you to become involved with the Top100 Graduate Employer and Future Leader Awards?

Grad App is committed and focused to the Graduate market, with a special interest in the development and recognition of high potential Graduates. We believed Grad App could help find and process the best applicants, give Fusion (the recruiter) the most effective and user-friendly system experience and of course, what better medium to connect talented students with top employers than the Top 100 Future Leaders Competition?!

What makes Grad App a leading graduate-specific application tracking system (ATS)?

We’ve designed this system with YOU in mind. We know and understand your needs and frustrations and want to bring you a cost effective, user friendly and highly capable solution. We are the most agile ATS on the market today. Because we are not constrained by an outdated system/integration we are able to develop features and provide them to market very quickly. We can do this while also providing a very high level of data security which is why our client base stretches from small start-ups to top level businesses and government departments. The uptake of the product has been incredible.

We love the look and feel of the app, what was your thinking around the design and functionality?

Our aim when we designed Grad App was to ensure we were user friendly for both the applicant and the Employer. This aim remains at the forefront of our vision as we continually drive towards a completely intuitive interface. Our training with most new clients is now down to less than an hour due to the ease of use and practical, logical and intuitive system design.

If you could have any famous person promote your system who would it be?

Liam (or Chris!) Hemsworth – because he’s Australian made, easy on the eye and sexy, just like Grad App!
