Avature ATS system

2019-03-28

The system also integrates well with our employee management system for onboarding management.

Pros

This entire system is customizable. The workflows, forms, portals, and events are all easily customizable to work for your unique company.

Cons

There are some elements that seem behind in the times compared to other software systems, but Avature is constantly releasing updates, and they're great about listening to their customers. If people voice their opinion, the Avature team will thoughtfully consider your suggestions.

Avature

2019-03-28

The ability for users to Self Report is superior to other products.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Best ATS I've Used!

2021-02-11

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

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

It takes extensive training to learn how to create lists and reports, as well as how to generally access many basic functions.

Built from the ground up, always adding amazing features, and client-centric in design and support.

Very Strong ATS

2019-03-28

I've worked with Brassring, ICIMS and SAP. Avature is my favorite because of the strong customer support and continued product evolution.

Pros

Appreciative of the vast customization available to admins within the system. Intuitive from a user perspective and very strong customer support from an admin perspective.

Cons

Lack of a home button and building an expression within a custom report is not always the easiest.

My product review

2021-08-04

We implemented a drip series campaign that is 100 percent automated.

Pros

The product is easy to use, easy to design. Intuitive and is continually being improved by Avature.

Cons

Some features (like time slot portal and calendar) are clunky and not as easy to use as the rest of the platform.

Great for Talent Pooling candidates

2019-12-09

Pros

- the dashboard and layout is very easy to use and you can easily navigate between folders and features - the ability to custom tag prospects/candidates allows the user to bring up search results very quickly and efficiently - the ability to create email campaigns - search functionality is complete and very simple to use

Cons

- depending on the level of package your organisation has, you can be limited with some of the features i.e. using your own customized tabs, not having it integrated with your applicant tracking system

Avature ATS is an industry leading software that provides endless possibilities to it's clients.

2019-04-04

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

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!

Avature is forward thinking and innovating.

2019-03-28

Pros

Your organizational needs can be designed and met.

Cons

Avature is continued development. They always are working to enhance and make their platform stronger. I don't have much negative to say about the tool because if there are things you wish were different, they are open to hearing what you want/need and will level-set candidly with you on possibilities.

Unintuitive user interface

2021-02-22

I'm a hiring manager trying to hire quality talent by using the Avature applicant tracking system.

Pros

When I learned how to use several features, Avature was quite easy to use.

Cons

Navigation was very confusing. It was difficult to find some of the functionality I was looking for, so ultimately I just limited myself to the few tasks I knew how to complete in the platform.
