CATS Software

It has a great parsing feature and the extension is very helpful. Many ATS systems do not support parsing within LinkedIn...this one does. I was sad to see this option go when we finally transitioned. I would almost keep CATS just for the LinkedIn parsing if I knew I could easily get the information OUT of the system once it was there. A good API/webhook would be great, but sadly the API connections don't work well. Our firm also works with companies with multiple sites all across the US. There was never a way to "nest" a location with a parent company. Because of this, being able to research or report on a true client relationship was not possible. It was a very manual process.

They need to improve a lot on their development side. The sales and marketing side does well to get clients but the development side is not able to compliment them in the way they represent it in front of the client. They need to work really hard on the UI/UX development side as the interface and experience are lacking a long way back. Other ATS in the market are way better. Vultus would be cheaper but they are nowhere near the competitors already available in the market. We saw a lesser rate and tried it for some time and we needed to switch back to our older ATS. So not a very good or pleasant experience with them but if they update and become a bit better then can have a good chance because they do good marketing. Also as they are cheap so the start-up company might prefer them but would be the first thing to be changed once the company goes into the higher revenue phase. Other than that they did not even have any extra thing, it was just like other ATS, and probably the better ones would be available than Vultus. Let's see how they go ahead and work out the tough competition in the market.

Cons

CATS Software

  • I would like to see either an integration with a robust reporting tool that would allow me to design my own custom reports with a data export or more built-in reporting options.
  • Mobile app is currently mostly just a look-up tool. I would like it to have the ability to do more - add tasks, update pipelines, etc.

Vultus Inc.

  • Their UI is very complex.
  • Their UX is something like, on the first day you would miss your previous ATS.
  • There is no ease of access
  • Many options are for the same result, and reports are very deep inside the scrolls.

I've had mixed results with asking for support. Sometimes they gave a quick answer and sometimes my emails were never responded to. Some responses were a single word.

Implementation Rating

CATS Software

This is an incredibly easy system to implement. There is no hardware or software required, it's entirely SaaS based. Compared to other systems I've implemented, it's breathtaking. Customization can all be done directly in the tool, there is no need for any involvement of consultants and most of the information you cannot figure out intuitively is covered in the knowledge base

Alternatives Considered

CATS Software

We used to use Sendouts (prior to it being acquired by Bullhorn) - and it wasn't browser based like CATS so instead of being able to access it from a home computer, laptop, mobile phone, etc. you could only use it on the computer with the software uploaded - which is a hindrance. It also wasn't as customizable as CATS. We picked CATS because it the price was right, it was browser-based, had email-integration, and integrates with social media and job posting services to share your jobs
with the public.

Vultus had no chance to stand against Ceipal or Bullhorn. Just their promotion and marketing team was good and secondly the customer service or the sales team. They showed us a good picture and gave us many options and also that we can customize it however we want. Also, it was cheaper than the other ones we were using. So we switched but literally after the training and all we started missing the prior ATS from which we switched to Vultus. The experience was not good, to be honest, and that was the reason we switched again from Vultus to Ceipal.

Return on Investment

CATS Software

  • We went from Excel spreadsheets to using CATS so honestly anything would be an improvement. But CATS has saved tremendous time on an on-going basis in terms of managing the career portal automatically.
  • Being able to log email conversations with the click of a button from Outlook right into CATS has been a time-saver and also has helped numerous times in providing better follow-through to candidates and providing better tracking of candidate interactions and what they have previously said (or not).

Vultus Inc.

  • Doesn't want to be specific but we have lost manpower efficiency due to the complex scrolls and options.
  • Database was not updated properly as there were fewer options to put in notes and had many unnecessary options.
  • Reports generation was a big task because the options and scrolls were hard to find and also too many options.
  • Very confusing and as i said many options did the same thing.
