CATS ATS

I don't know how appropriate it'd be for large organizations with very large recruiting teams - cost per license might not make sense after a certain point. For small/medium sized businesses, it's absolutely worth a look. It's very affordable, super-easy to use, highly configurable, and set up is an breeze. Knowledge base is decent, and support is generally OK, though it's not necessarily a strength. The product team is engaged with the user community to crowdsource suggestions for updates/improvements and allows users to vote on others ideas that are appealing. Search functionality is solid and documents are instantly indexed as far as I can tell - I've never noticed any delay. It'll push postings out to various free job boards and you can customize to push out to pay boards as well. It will integrate to certain HRIS packages, so if that's of interest, making sure yours is on the supported list would be important. Data backup is super easy and would likely make changing to another ATS down the road pretty simple if the need arises.

Vultus Recruit

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.

Pros

CATS ATS

  • Custom fields for all entities of any data type let's you track what you care about. Also customizable workflow with triggers can save a ton of time in automating processes and also ensuring steps aren't missed/established processes and protocols are adhered to.
  • Support is extremely responsive, knowledgeable and committed to resolving any issue.
  • Integrations with LinkedIn, job boards etc. is a big time saver and helps bring it all to one place.

Cons

CATS ATS

  • Reporting has improved over the years but could still be better. It is what I would call "semi-customizable" in terms of what I can generate a report on, but would like full customization capability.
  • Mobile access is OK but not slick. Usually I don't need mobile access but every once in a while I'm out somewhere, need to grab something out of CATS and I can get it but I think there's a good opportunity to make it better.

Vultus Recruit

  • 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.

Our company has been using it and enjoying the benefits for a few years now. Its a perfect system for our end goal of finding the best candidate effectively and being able to track and write reports on our progress.

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.

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 ATS

I find CATS ATS easier to use then Salesforce, on the recruitment side. It's hard to create pipelines like you can in CATS ATS. I, however, have used other customized ATS using Microsoft Access. I have used HRConnect which was developed by a firm I worked for using MS Access. It which was a great tracking and reporting tool. It logged calls out, calls in, length of calls, job orders, candidate submissions and tracked all the status automatically.

Vultus Recruit

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 ATS

  • We were able to reduce the amount of time we spent posting to various job boards by more than 75%.
  • We were able to reduce the time it takes to find, engage, submit and ultimately hire candidates.
  • We were able to recoup the entire cost of the tool within less than 2 months.

Vultus Recruit

  • 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.
