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

TaskRay

TaskRay is a great solution for small to medium sized businesses running multiple projects at the same time. It is very cost effective and their development team is actively adding new functionality regularly. If you prefer working from a tiled Kanban board view, this is highly worth evaluating.

Pros

  • Allows recruiters to service candidates within a radius of a desired city/location
  • Allows recruiters to see multiple fields/information on multiple candidates at once
  • Allows for easier ranking/sorting by salary, years of experience, etc

  • Kanban Board View for moving tasks from stage to stage. Easy to see where work is. Each team has visibility as to what is coming down the pipeline.
  • Great time keeping capabilities with its integration with Salesforce. Know exactly where your staff is spending their time with each project, across all the various tasks being worked.
  • Quickly identify Blockers with shading tasks. Staff would identify these blockers with a quick check mark inside the task details and Project Management would know to step in to assist. Great feature when working through Sprints.
  • Easy to schedule repeatable tasks for each day or week. If you have recurring Sprint Meetings, you can setup the task to recreate itself after it has been closed during its next scheduled interval.

Cons

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

  • During my use, I would at times get responsive issues in regards to tasks opening, editing task details, or moving from stage to stage. This didn't occur for quite some time until we started loading the system with extensive projects and hundreds of tasks to each project. While unfortunate to run into these performance issues, many applications run into similar issues when working many simultaneous tickets at the same time.
  • Customization to the task layouts is a bit cumbersome.
  • If you are running a lot of stages, 8 - 12, moving tasks from one side of the board to the other can take a little bit of work. At the time there were no quick close capabilities on the tasks to redirect the task to its final stage.

It's hands-down the best PM tool we have ever used. Nothing compares in ease of use and being easy to learn. It also looks great and makes sense immediately

Alternatives Considered

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

TaskRay does not require you to be a certified project manager to manage your project like MS Project. We also tried using the Salesforce free project solution but it's not as tightly integrated with SF as the TaskRay and again not nearly as easy to use. We also used ConnectWise in the past but again it was it's own silo and not integrated with the rest of our business software so it was difficult to use it in practice

Return on Investment

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

  • It has highly increased the efficiency and communication with our teams. We are a virtual company and this is the most important benefit we get from Task Ray.
