Avature

Enterprise SaaS platform for talent acquisition & management

About Avature

Avature is an enterprise SaaS platform for talent acquisition and talent management, and a provider of candidate relationship management for recruiting. Avature offers solutions for managing campus recruiting, recruitment events, employee referrals, internal mobility, succession planning, and more.

Avature's applicant tracking system (ATS) allows users to create multiple career sites with customized branding, application processes, and navigation to which they can drive different audience segments based on brands, and candidates’ professional interests or experience levels. Data can be collected through any number of custom fields, and application processes can be created with one, two, or multiple steps. A range of job templates can also be designed, created, shared, and stored in Avature’s library. Configurable, event-driven workflows also allow for the creation of multiple approval workflows for different business needs.

Avature’s workflow-integrated online calendars enable interview scheduling, with automatic publishing of appointments to Outlook and Google Calendar. The advanced calendars support first-come-first-serve, time blocking, and other high-volume schedule management features. Email messaging, correspondence tracking, offer letter generation, and notifications are all automated, and serve to streamline the recruitment process alongside e-Signature support. Avature’s analytics tools allow users to create a range of standard reports, as well as recruiter productivity reports, hiring manager activity reports, and vendor reports, and real-time dashboards with role-based access.

Avature’s performance management solution enables the creation of ongoing, collaborative, and agile processes to empower fact-based, timely performance discussions. Goals can be set and tracked by employees, and managers can identify high-performing and underachieving employees, organizational skill gaps, and more. Users can request feedback from their managers, peers, direct reports, and external partners, and receive feedback and recognition in real time. Performance evaluations are customizable, with self-assessments for competencies and goals, manager evaluations, and peer reviews.

Overall I want to conclude that Avature CRM is best software or platform Hiring management department and Talent sourcing department. I will highly recommend you to use for your business. their all features are awesome and gave best service in return of their subscription plans.

Pros

The Avature is best and solid CRM software or platform and the following things that I like most are:
- Easy to use dashboard even beginner can understand easily.
- Powerful drag and drop builder.
- Easy and very reliable to use and tagging of candidate's skill feature is awesome.

Cons

the only two thing that I don't like most is:
- Their reporting feature is somehow not meet the quality criteria.
- Not able to import multiple CVs.

The ability for users to Self Report is superior to other products. To be able to filter down by workflow step or any field filter, regardless of the object, make it easy for the user to configure their own reporting. Furthermore, Avature has and is willing to build custom integrations for many 3rd party initiatives should their clients be interested in integrating say, a dialer, or, other data source. They are great to work with I have made career decisions on my ability to work with and support Avature.

Pros

I've had 7 years experience implimenting Avature, and, the unfortunate experience of sunsetting Avature in favor of what turned out to be a far inferior (though a very popular) product (with another company). Avature's ability to report data, customize workflow and field configurations, and, the ability to utilize data outside of the platform is second to none. It's highly customizable, user-friendly, and, easy to train. There is no need for 3 part apps, with additional costs, and while some features have additional costs within Avature, the value is superior to those with 3rd party Apps. Avature is constantly improving their product, rolling out enhancements, and, thinking ahead to provided what is needed for true AWS achievement.

Cons

While there are some cons, like, accessing large table data in a raw format for BI integration, Avature is working on overcoming that with Avature 8/Endpoints. Because Avature is so customizable, no two instances are alike, and, this can be more difficult for standardization and training initiatives, but, there are prescriptive restrictions that can be placed on users and admin type roles to avoid customization where desired.

Overall, as long as you have clearly defined requirements and vision of the future-state and have dedicated resources to thoroughly test the application, you might want to give Avature a try. Avature is a powerful engine if you know what you are looking for and if you are able to establish the right way of communicating this to the implementation team.

Pros

Flexibility to solve for "modern" times problems

Cons

Lack of QA from the Avature implementation team

Changes being pushed that are not well managed with users. Assigned Account Managers should make sure clients are aware of the change, when it is coming and how that impacts functionality of the solution.

Easter-egg hunting syndrome. We do not know we have certain features (and it only takes them a minute to enable it) until we ask or raise a struggle to Avature. Could be a frustrating experience.

Avature has so much to offer in linking multiple systems - I know that a big business problem at my company is trying to ensure that we are being as efficient as possible in everything we do, and Avature really helps us do this by saving time and effort.

Pros

Avature is probably the most all-encompassing ATS I've had the opportunity to utilize throughout my time in recruitment. The features are so vast and customizable that it's easy to set up dashboards and reporting in a way that will allos your team to work out of the system in nearly every functionality you may need.

Cons

Avature is really not at all user-friendly. It takes extensive training to learn how to create lists and reports, as well as how to generally access many basic functions. Once you learn everything it's an amazingly intuitive system! But getting there is difficult and takes quite a lot of time.

Avature is by far my favorite ATS software that I have worked with in my career. Not only that, but they do a great job with bi-weekly system enhancements and staying at the top of the curve when it comes to functionality and features that will keep your recruiting organization at the forefront of the industry.

Pros

Two of my favorite features of Avature are the ability to automate and customize. When implementing this system you have the ability to match the software to your business model and processes. You can also apply automation in a number of ways to enable an increase in productivity for your Recruiting and HR organizations.

Cons

With tons of features and flexibility it's all about knowing and figuring out the best way to do what you want. Sometimes you will encounter issues based on an initial configuration that will take a good amount of work to resolve and get you from point A to B, but nevertheless the system can do a ton!
