ATS - any free scanners

Is anyone aware of any free resources to see how one's resume would look through the eyes of ATS?
Also I have read that coloumns are difficult to be read by ATS. So does it mean that creating a 2 or 3 columns skills matrix is a no no?

Columns are OKAY if you use tabs... not OKAY if you use a table.

As for free ATS type systems, if you are willing to get a bit of 'promotional' e-mails, a few large resume writing firms will send your resume through an ATS to see what it is and what it shows about you. Glassdoor has such a promo when you upload a resume.
