ApplicantPro

ApplicantPro is excellent for small and mid-sized companies that need an easy and cost-efficient way of getting their jobs posted and getting lots of applicants. It does interface with some HRIS platforms, but for most cases it may not interface with all HRIS platforms.

Pros

  • The email interface is easy to use. I'd prefer if it pushes the email quicker. But it works well.
  • The job posting to website interface and ability is very easy and works extremely well.
  • The candidate and client database is very easy to use and works perfectly. The tie in from company to contact to job order is very easy.

  • Applicant Pro has been great for our company. The ability to push the job to several free job boards (including several local options), as well as paid services, makes Applicant Pro a great bang-for-the-buck applicant tracking system (ATS).
  • The system is user friendly, which makes it easy for hiring managers to go in and go through resumes hassle free.
  • For our recruiting team, Applicant Pro provides plenty of tools tell help us be successful, such as messaging (including a built-in texting system), facilitating background checks, and other great features.

Cons

  • The fact that you can't copy and paste from one email message over to a new email message you are composing is a huge downfall.
  • The task and calendar features don't seem as easy to use as Microsoft Outlook.
  • If the calendar would sync to Google that would be awesome!

  • While Applicant Pro interfaces with many HRIS platforms to streamline onboarding, unfortunately this option is not available for us (though I'm not sure if that's Applicant Pro's fault or our HRIS provider's fault).

AkkenCloud is the closest application to incorporate staffing, billing, and candidate/employee tracking all in one package.

Akken is quite easy to use however there are a few more complex functions or multi steps to go through to run reports and find historic information.

Performance

It's an average tool. The calendar function isn't great, email is slow, and there always seem to be day-to-day issues. The functionality is mostly there for a staffing firm, but there are plenty of areas of improvement still needed

ApplicantPro is super user friendly and pushes out to many free job sites. ApplicantPro is also easy to train managers on and the interface makes it easy to review applications quickly.
