While there are some great global recruiters that have developed deep understanding of technical processes in specific industries, many recruiters focusing on country or regional geos have staff that know how to recruit, but have no specific niche technical area in which they are especially well versed.
Technical recruiting at the high value human asset level is a little bit like being a teacher preparing engineering or science students for university entrance exams. Having the teaching skills isn't enough, the teacher also needs to have a deep understanding of the technical subject to successfully teach it.
It's dangerous to 'throw' an ATS at the problem, because jargon obsolescence doesn't establish absence of experience. The latest industry jargon is easily researched online, and in the hands of a skilled prose writer makes for catchy technical journalism masquerading as a CV, but that's not what the client needs. Prematurely 'feeling out' potential referees brings other problems.

Can't ATS fill the MCKONSULT role?
No. Software tools at recruiters disposal only react to jargonistic triggers in the form of acronyms or keywords.
