This master thesis investigates how to design applicant tracking systems (ATS) to facilitate awareness, collaboration, and efficiency (ACE). For this purpose, an HCD process has been undertaken, encompassing primary and secondary research, and implementation and evaluation methods. As a result of the investigation the prototype of the Honeycomb ATS has been designed. Based on the prototype, fourteen design patterns that enhance the collaboration and awareness of teams in CSCW applications have been developed and the accompanying ACE pattern model has been established. While these results have been evaluated against each other, and yielded an effective mutual integration, more work needs to be done in the future to test and verify those patterns in a broader context.
