NEW YORK. (November 24, 2021). Avature, a leading enterprise SaaS platform for talent acquisition and talent management, has been recognized as a Strategic Challenger in the 2021 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Talent & People Success.

Although its origins are rooted in talent acquisition, relationship management has always been a core tenet of the company’s approach to strategic HR. Understanding that effective talent management doesn’t happen in isolation, Avature’s innovative customer-driven approach provides industry-leading solutions to a wide range of organizations for both talent acquisition and talent management.

The Fosway 9-Grid™ is a multi-dimensional model used to understand the relative position of talent management solutions and providers in the UK/European market. The model considers the performance, potential, market presence, total cost of ownership and future trajectory of each solution it reviews. As a Strategic Challenger, Avature’s talent management solutions have a proven track record of meeting even the most demanding and complex needs of global enterprises. This designation means that Avature provides solutions with a richer and broader suite capability than most other solutions on the grid.

While most solutions contained on the 9-Grid are labeled as “specialist solutions” (i.e., they support a narrow set of functionalities within a defined sub-area of the talent and people success cycle), Avature is a “suite solution.” This means Avature’s one-platform approach to talent management is recognized for supporting a wide range of talent functionality – from recruiting, to onboarding, performance, appraisal, employee mobility succession, recognition and retention – while providing an engaging and tailored experience to every stakeholder.

Avature enables enterprise organizations such as L’Oréal, Pontoon, Deloitte and Delta Airlines to transform their strategic vision into a reality.

David Wilson, CEO, Fosway Group, commented, “Avature’s position as a Strategic Challenger on the 2021 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Talent & People Success reflects the company’s continued focus on innovating and connecting the talent experience in complex companies. As a talent suite, Avature also enables its customers to support talent mobility, learning and performance which are all key drivers for Talent & People success.”

Dimitri Boylan, CEO of Avature, commented on this result, “With 36 percent of revenue invested in R&D, innovation is embedded at the heart of our organization. We are committed to providing the technology our customers need to succeed in the world of TA and TM alike.

The benefits of an agile development philosophy are more tangible now than at any time in recent memory. Our technology is driven by our customers’ needs and is designed to match their challenges. We’re delighted that our efforts are being recognized by our positioning on the Fosway 9-Grid™.”

Avature will continue to push the envelope with an ambitious roadmap of new functionality for 2022 and beyond.
