Avature has some very strong modules. As an example, one can move a candidate from one req to another fairly easily. The underlying base of Avature is solid...candidate movement within a requisition is solid as well, one of the few intuitive functionalities that exist in the system.
How large are the G2 servers? Because the list is exhaustive.
1. While the report-writer attempts to be user-friendly, the learning curve is fairly steep. The function is not intuitive.
2. I've worked with Avature on and off since 2005 or so. NOT ONE of the versions has been intuitive. In some of the versions, the UX/UI was more like the make-up job on Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze, and John Leguizamo in "To Wong Foo With Love...."--basically covering up the "green-screen" underpinnings. Later iterations were better, to be sure, however, the continued kludgy linking to MS Office Suite products continued.
3. Trying to search from within Avature--I finally gave up. Somehow, to use another movie reference, my seach string got "Lost In Translation" and the results just were off.
Think very carefully about Avature. There are some very robust modules. The question to ask is whether those functionalities tip the scales from the negatives on the kludgy ones...
At the time I trialed it for Spherion, and later when I used it at other RPOs, Avature was what was the best thing after sliced bread. Now...not so much. Early on the benefits were...well...it was the only game in town for smaller and for RPOs.
As the market for ATS/CRMs grew, Avature became third tier.
