I totally recommend getting an ATS. Some of them are even "free" but they charge a small fee with each ad you post. I've tried SmartRecruiters and HiringThing. I used to have an annual charge of about $1,500.00 for the software. I love being able to share resumes with hiring managers, rate applicants, search resumes, etc. $1500/year could save you an incredible amount of time and frustration.

Few months ago I actually had two interviews in one company through SmartRecruiters, and once it started the platform was rather smooth and good. Besides that, I simply hate them. Worst of all, when I try to edit them, the process is terribly tedious and lasts for ages! You have to save or "publish" the profile after editing each individual item, or it throws a bunch of "unexpected errors". So, you literally must have one profile for all job applications.
