Avature ATS

Great for a mid-size company, great for OFCCP documentation, multiple users friendly. Might be a challenge in a larger environment where there is a more built out, streamlined process in place unless there was a specialist to set it up exactly to the needs of the organization and the process.

SumTotal Learn is well-suited for Life Science industries (based on my experience) from the compliance perspective and also in dealing with GxP document management. It has GDPR regulations as well hence can be used in EU regions as well. If the organization is small or medium-sized, then the license and implementation cost would be slightly high. However we get the value for the investment.

Cons

Avature ATS

  • Easily over-engineered. While it's great to be able to customize, there are times where there are too many choices.
  • Would like to see it integrate better with our HRIS system.
  • Still a lot of manual steps in the workflow.

I do not find SumTotal to be intuitive. I feel we need to adjust our needs to meet the functionality available in the tool.

I am supporting SumTotal Learn because I have been using the product since 2015 as a user and as an implementation consultant. The application provides the overall learning solutions to large organizations. It is in compliance with GDPR, CFR 11, and other regulatory requirements hence suitable for industries having mandatory compliance requirements. From value for money to customer support, SumTotal earns good credits for its performance, features, etc.

Alternatives Considered

Avature ATS

Avature is much better than OpenHire! OpenHire didn't give us the ability to share resumes or notes through the system and was very complicated to keep track of candidates that applied to multiple jobs or duplicate candidates. Was also very archaic in the interfacing and usability. Avature gave us many more options to customize our system.

When I came to my company, they had been using a "light" LMS called Articulate. It was cheap and bare bones; i.e. not a lot of features, really just a platform to launch eLearning from and not real interface for student to utilize. When I began to overhaul the training department, this was one of the first things I changed. Articulate would only run courses built in their software, and the software was not 508 compliant. In addition, we had no ability to create learning plans, house transcripts, customize the interface, or manage the students. I made the choice to select and LMS that was a true LMS with all of the features that were critical to our clients' needs. Thus far, SumTotal has been able to support all of our needs, except one; mobile learning that is media rich
