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

It is very well suited when different branches of the company reside in different countries or time zones. It allows the project manager to efficiently keep track of the progress of their team members. It reduces the need for intensive calls where the manager asks for an extensive check in and update from each individual person. It also allows the project manager to update tasks and timelines as needed.

Cons

Conga ActionGrid

  • The speed of ActionGrid can be very slow when reviewing a large pool of results

Resource Guru

  • It isn't quite as user-friendly as I would like. Once you are accustomed to it, it is very useful, but the initial use could be facilitated.
  • One user-friendly calendar interface that displays tasks and deadlines would be nice.
  • A real-time time logging button would be nice, rather than entering hours retroactively.

Alternatives Considered

Conga ActionGrid

I've only used Salesforce before and am now using Conga ActionGrid. Although Salesforce is great, it is only used to log candidate information and then log actions that have been performed. With Conga ActionGrid, we are able to log more specific details about candidates, activities and follow up items. Conga ActionGrid provides more tools that would benefit many departments

Resource Guru

Resource Guru is the only product of it's kind that I have used regularly. Slack is comparable in allowing communication between teams, but doesn't have nearly the functionality of Resource Guru. Resource Guru is the only product that I am aware of that manages tasks and deadlines between various team members, and can be accessed by all members.

Return on Investment

Conga ActionGrid

  • It has allowed for an easier sourcing of our candidate database which translates into placements

Resource Guru

  • It has made our cross functional team much more productive and efficient.
  • The only negative feature is the slightly complicated user interface. Before a manager was fully introduced to the product, it was not utilized as much as should be.
  • It allowed all details of timelines to be updated easily (automatically), if the deadline is pushed forward or back.
