Many of vendors who are going to integrate or have integrated told me that Avionte keep changing things and they have not been able to integrate with them for a year, while they have already integrated with their partners. Also it's not web based, everything is so outdated. something that takes 4 seconds to respond in 2017 is like a decade in 2017.

Pros

It can do almost everything including back office. It prints checks. they can build customized report for money.

Cons

Everything is very slow. Difficult to navigate. My staff won't use all feature. only basics. When I encourage them and show them all the benefits, always complaint goes down to it's complexity, lack of simplicity, slowness to respond to anything. too many clicks.

I would not recommend this software for anyone who needs an ATS or CRM or HR software to fill orders and find candidates.

Pros

Back office is supposed to be very good for Industrial companies. Honestly not the most important thing in a Recruiting software and there are so many other options.

Cons

Very hard to use. not intuitive. NOT an ATS system - difficult to parse resume's, difficult to enter orders, you have to go to a different screen for every little thing..not functional

Value for Money

The product is an all-inclusive staffing software program. It has the ability to truly streamline your business. Along with the ability to do so much, comes the challenges of trying to have staff members learn it all. Once the setups, processes and procedures are established it becomes an invaluable tool for our business. Getting there is the challenge.

Pros

Software and it's capabilities. Many aspects of this program create significant operating efficiencies. Paperless on-boarding, payroll and invoice processing, automated employee inputs through the paperless on-boarding. ACA component needs work, but will be a big plus.

Cons

The implementation process was weak on the customer service and support side. We were left to figure a lot of it out on our own.

Avionte's concept is great but some of the functions can be difficult and not user-friendly. There are a lot of things that stay set and settings so when you log back in it can be easy to forget you have that saved. The search function and navigating between those results can be confusing. I have used other systems compared to this one and would say it rates as average.

Pros

-Reporting function
-Ability to over ride some functions

Cons

-Ease of use
-So many functions that are not necessary or used

Value for Money

Avionte has the potential to be amazingly useful but for users that are far from tech savvy or impatient users, Avionte is complicated, overwhelming, and cumbersome to use.

Pros

It can do nearly everything you want/need.

Cons

Customizations are not updated with the core application and must be updated by request for an additional charge. Although I understand why this doesn't happen, it's hard to remember everything that might need updating.

Advice to Others

If you're going to use Avionte for your company, go self hosted with an option for Avionte support if you get stuck on something

For a staffing agency where the profit is in the Front Office, I would not recommend this software.

Pros

Avionte tech support is outstanding, also the staff is very friendly. Reports are excellent, and back office workflow is workable.
GP Calculator is the Boom!

Cons

Remote desktop is not efficient. Software does not function outside of Internet Explorer, so if you have applicants applying on any other browser they will have many issues, nor is it mobile friendly.
Front Office in Avionte is not Recruiter Friendly. Too many wasteful steps to accomplish one goal, and you cannot have more than one window open at a time, so if you’re in the middle of generating a resume, and a client or candidate calls in, you cannot do anything unless you exit out, having to start over.

Advice to Others

Until Avionte becomes Cloud Base, I would not purchase

The software is good- very robust and covers everything that we need. We found that there were only 4 staffing software vendors who could do EVERYTHING that we need.

Avionte regularly solicits feedback, and shapes their future development based on what the customers are looking for.

Likes Least

They are a growing company, and sometimes that growth affects the customer. While everything has not run perfectly with Avionte, when the rare problem comes up, the problem gets SOLVED.

Recommendations

Don't just look at the software, look at the company behind it. There are competitors of Avionte that have a reputation of suing their customers and being sued by their customers. Stay away from those competitors.

Ask the management of any software company who the data belongs to (you), and under what circumstances they would hold your data hostage (should be none).

Make sure that you take test both the front end and back end of the software. We looked at a couple of options that had a better front end than Avionte, but the backend was a disaster. Also be careful of add-on fees. Third party usually means extra money.

Finally- be wary of long term contracts. Avionte does not have them. If software is good then customers will stay. I believe Avionte's customer retention is among the top of the industry.

Avionte provides a powerful applicant tracking software solution that can be molded to suit your environment with a little know how and a bit of work. Their project managers are all top notch and will provide some hand holding if necessary, but for the most part if you have in-house IT staff they won't have much of an issue. Their software will force you to take a hard look at your internal processes and if your management staff is willing to make changes you can streamline quite a bit.

Likes Least

I'm not a fan of the trouble ticket system that was put in place about a year and a half ago. It detracts from the personal touch their help desk had prior to that.

Recommendations

Make sure to do your due diligence when evaluating how this software can save you time and money. By automating our payroll systems we were able to save quite a bit of money in internal staff.

The software is very slow. Every time you click and navigate through pages it is very laggy. If you like an efficient program this is not the thing for you. Since day one of roll out it has been one problem or another. The entire platform looks like you are stepping 15 years back in technology.

Keep looking. This is not a great software!! There are many options that would be better.

This product is great, it takes all HR functions and rolls them into one product, applicant tracking, payroll, onboarding paperwork-BG screens, etc. Best program I have used thus far.

I feel the applicant tracking system could be more efficient, for example, being able to submit the candidate to a particular job requisition based on the skills of the applicant.

I would definitely recommend Avionte - I believe this system does a great job capturing all the needs of the HR world

It does house and make searchable virtually all (most of) our data. It gets the job done and then some. I've used similar and competitor programs and of the programs that we have actually used in place of Avionte - Avionte wins hands down.

Outdated UI, slow response times. Running searches can bring the system to a hast.

Recommendations

Try to break it. Really find out what you can and cannot do with Avionte. You will find that Avionte will be able to meet most of your needs. There are lots of paths to find information and users can find the way that is most comfortable for them.

Avionte Uses: Staffing vs. Headhunting

Ease-of-use

Likes Best

I am in a unique situation where I have trained and used Avionte in both a Staffing and a Headhunting setting. Here at QPS our main focus is that staffing side of the business, but we over the past couple of years our Professional Team has grown as well. Avionte is our sole ATS and CRM on the Staffing side of things and our team including myself love it. There are so many key features that make this product stand out on the staffing side including back-office, reporting, customization, and most importantly a one stop shop for us to run our business. On top of those key features, Avionte has a support staff that is next to none that is here to help whenever we need it.

Likes Least

Now to the other side of the coin and how our Professional Team (AKA Headhunters) have utilized Avionte. A few years ago, our Professional team was utilizing Avionte for our lower end candidates and another ATS for our higher end candidates. Our team decided that Avionte didn't have the key features our other ATS system had and decided to completely get out of Avionte and move over to the other ATS. A few of the biggest reasons why was that the interface of Avionte didn't compare, Avionte wasn't cloud based, and the ease of use of Avionte compared to the other ATS wasn't there either.

Recommendations

When you are considering which software to go with make sure you discuss with your team the type of interface they are looking for. Yes, Avionte is coming out with Aero which will compete with the cloud based products out there, but as with all new products, I'm sure there will be bugs that need to be worked out in the beginning, but if Avionte puts as much time and resources into Aero as they have there Flagship product, I am sure it will be a great piece of software very soon.

Cons- Avionte servers were so slow we finally moved it to another server host about 4 years ago that we had a prior relationship with that made to world of difference. We have the speed and little to no down time that we did not have prior.

If you had or having these problems with system as we did , we moved it to server host company called Intellipath at intellipath.com out of Indiana.
Owner Chris Ferland is one of the most honest people I ever worked with and understands the importance of keeping system operating and backed up.

After 10 years working together I can say he and his company are TOP notch. I found that the software companies know about software but not about servers.

Our company switched over to Avionte after a period of time utilizing a different, labor-intensive ATS. After a few months utilizing the system, this is what our team has decided regarding the product.

Pros:
Better than paper
Fairly easy email integration into the ATS
Payroll within the program could not be easier
Generating reports is a very straight-forward process

Cons:
In order to attach messages to work orders, employees, or clients, 90% of the time, one must do so separately. For example: If you have an employee out on assignment with a particular company under a particular work order and you wish to log a message, you must do so by individually selecting to attach it to the employee, then the assignment number, then the client company.
Ending assignments must be done in both the employee screen and the assignment number screen. Ending an assignment in one screen will not automatically change the files throughout the program.
Assigning employees to a work order is extremely labor intensive. One must go through several steps that, in other programs, would automatically populate (ie: changing a prospective candidate's status from "Active" to "W2" does not happen when the employee is assigned. One must change their status manually).
Utilizing Avionte's online portal to get employees to update information including I9 and W4 documentation only works 50% of the time.
Issues brought forth to the Customer Service team at Avionte are addressed with, "Alright. We're going to look into this and will get back to you within the next few hours." The only time we have ever received follow-up was a call the next day to inform us that they happened to notice our ticket was still open and that they would let us know when the problem was fixed.
The search feature leaves MUCH to be desired. It is not intuitive and is very difficult to use.

This is a slow, clunky system that requires a lot of patience and a lot of re-tracing of one's steps. Updates and changes to the system are very slow to take effect. I could not recommend this software to anyone.

Highly recommended. We're a smaller firm, and it's been the perfect fit for us.

Pros

The software is very easy to pick up for new users. I love how we can go in and edit a lot of the drop down lists and other features ourselves. It's pretty flexible, even when we have unusual things that we need to accomodate, we can find some way to make it work. And the service and support are fantastic!

Cons

Sometimes it doesn't have every single feature or field we want, but I don't think any pre-existing software would.
