Conga ActionGrid

Overall, I enjoy using Conga ActionGrid. It helps us store our large candidate pool, while continuously adding more candidates every day. With a quick search we are able to find these candidates and then match them to a job that they might be a good fit for. After we create a packet for them to present to hiring managers

Innotas is able to handle a mid-size organization extremely well, but due to its poor searching features, I can see potential problems for extremely large organizations. So a key question to ask would be what is the size of your organization? A lot of tasks are also non-automated (such as dashboard refreshing and filter time updates), so the organization should also be willing to have a decent number of employees who will maintain the system.

Also, depending on the budget or expertise of the organization's employees, an organization may want to consider a newer or more advanced database software. Despite Innotas doing what is required of it reasonably effectively, it is likely better options exist.

Pros

  • Saving candidate information
  • Creating packet templates
  • Matching candidates to potential jobs
No photo available
  • Tremendous amount of functionality in addition to the extensive database - Dashboards, filters, reports, timesheets, Web API, and so on
  • Nearly 100% uptime. During my three years of working with it, it has only gone down once for a couple of hours. Innotas representatives also responded promptly once we alerted them of our problem.
  • Extensive Customization - Allows for creation of custom entities, columns, fields, and so on

Cons

  • Sometimes Conga goes slower when using it at a high volume
  • Being able to pull more data through LinkedIn and Indeed
  • Job match function

  • The search functionality's algorithm is extremely weak. If you slightly mistype a search it will return no results rather than trying to find results close to your spelling. The search feature also seems to have trouble picking up certain special characters such as dashes and colons.
  • While the UI is functional, it can definitely use improvements. For example, the extensive use of popups is definitely an annoyance
  • Poor Documentation - It is difficult to search support or documentation for help. The available documentation and community is very difficult to sift through.
  • Going in hand with poor documentation, since it is not widely used, it is difficult to find help topics related to your problem on Google or other search engines.

Because I never evaluated other tools, I would be open to considering others. Given our establishment with Innotas and the value it has provided us, separating from it would cause some organizational discomfort. However, if a tool existed with a more intuitive interface for manipulating the data and factors of projects and resources, I would be very interested.

Still cumbersome in some areas. It really depends on the individual. I've seen very smart developers who get lost just managing tasks and logging time. Whereas others use the system with ease

Alternatives Considered

It's excellent. It really helps optimize a search.

I have not used any other PPM applications, however I do know that overall price was heavily weighted when choosing alternatives to Innotas

Return on Investment

  • It has benefited us positively, as I stated earlier- it allows us to filter down results of 65,000+ candidates to a search of 1-100 candidates.

  • Increased efficiency.
  • One central place for reporting all projects.
  • Stay on task with project plans on schedule, on time.
