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.

Trakstar Hire (formerly Recruiterbox)

For large companies Recruiterbox can be a software with exceptional results, allowing the application of all kinds of functions, mostly based on the execution of steps in recruitment operations with large lists of interested parties, which makes it useful in businesses such as supermarkets or services oriented to governmental management. Since it works well with emails, Recruiterbox is good for creating job interviews that do not directly require face-to-face management, as in the case of most software development jobs that are currently held. Recruiterbox is good for working in human talent departments that do not have enough experience in handling human resources software, or that are from a new business, thanks to its simplicity of use.

Pros

Avature ATS

  • Search capabilities - ability to pipeline top talent.
  • Communication with hiring managers in the hiring manager portal - resumes/notes don't get lost in email and are always accessible to anyone involved in the hiring process.
  • Ability to customize - we've been able to change work flows for different needs, and different business groups as well.

  • There's a "social footprint" kind of feature that scrubs popular social media tools for content, and aggregates this on the candidate page for a complete view of the candidate's personal brand. That was neat.
  • The email and calendar integration was well done. Most people want simple communications (the ability to respond to a candidate from the email client on your mobile device, without the hassle of logging into a platform). The ability to discreetly communicate with the candidates, while maintaining the tags and communications thread on the candidates page was gold. It reminded me a lot of central desktop by how smartly it was executed.
  • Increasing reach by blasting the job to multiple job boards (this was included in one of the subscriptions). Great timesaver.

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.

  • Not very ergonomic design, which is a bit annoying.
  • I would like it to allow compatibility with video calling tools, allowing us to send links during the conversation.
  • It is quite annoying not to have an alphabetical order in the list of possible candidates.

We have not renewed our subscription for Recruiterbox. Although it is a great platform with great customer service, it does not have the functionality our company needs to be able to scale and there weren't plans to develop that functionality soon.

Recruiterbox is extremely easy to use and to learn. The only function that is difficult to use, even once you have the hang of the system, is reporting.

The customer service has always been fantastic. We were always taken care of and no issue or problem went unsolved.

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.

Recruiterbox does not have as many features as other products I have used, however I would rate it very strong for ease of use. If you need something simple & out of the box, I had no complaints. I also experienced very few, if any, bugs while using the product.

Return on Investment

Avature ATS

  • Ability to be more efficient in hiring, leading to faster hire times
  • Easier to keep clean data for OFCCP or AAP audits
  • Spend a lot of time altering or changing workflows/process/manually moving things along

  • Improved employee retention: We've seen our employee retention increase significantly over time. While a lot of this has to do with internal benefits improvements, we can also point towards our organization within Recruiterbox as helping us vet the very best of the best.
  • Internship satisfaction: We have 3 internships every quarter, and we've seen internship satisfaction increase over time.
