AkkenCloud

Akken could be described to be suitable for a staffing company but just spend more money on a product that is worthwhile. It is really a terrible ATS and it's a sad fact that I was not here for the selection process. Apparently people pushed for Bullhorn but it was deemed too expensive. That is shortsighted.

CEIPAL is the best ATS system available in the market for US recruiting. It makes the job really easy for any recruiter. Its features like mail merging, job board integration and migrating of resumes on click are some of the better ones which make it best in the market against other competitors.

Pros

AkkenCloud

  • Automatically keeps a record of activities such as email conversations related to a candidate.
  • Time and date stamp on events logged to a candidate and customer is a great resource.

Cons

AkkenCloud

  • I had issues with AkkenCloud randomly shutting down.
  • Payroll - AkkenCloud wasn't as user friendly when I was trying to input time and process payroll.
Kirah Terlip | TrustRadius Reviewer

CEIPAL ATS (TalentHire)

  • I would like to see domain or industry search option where we can source particular domain experience.
  • Would like to see an option where I can specify a skill with years of experience and how recently - Ex:- Java with 5 years experience and last use in 2020.

There is no reason for us to make a switch. Everybody in the office is familiar with it and it allows us to get our work done faster. There are no pressing issues that would warrant a change at this point

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.

CEIPAL is user friendly and it's a single ATS platform solution for most of our business needs and helps us solving the business needs and business problems of each of our clients. Easy to remember options and also the GUI is attractive and it gives all updates and notifications time to time.

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

I give it a 1 because I couldn't give it a Zero. Horrible functionality, very ugly interface, and incredibly unfriendly to use. This system will offer nothing positive. It will only slow you down and make your workplace much more inefficient. If you are in the staffing industry where fast-paced is a way of life, this will only hurt you in the end.

Alternatives Considered

AkkenCloud

We preferred the ability to go with Mac computers. That was the number one selling point for us. Besides that we liked the ease of the product. The email interface looked exactly like Outlook. The calendar the same. The price was also a big selling point. It came in slightly cheaper than Bullhorn and other systems and in our opinion a better product.
Jamie Burchell | TrustRadius Reviewer

CEIPAL ATS (TalentHire)

It is far cheaper and does almost the same thing that you can find in other tools. The customer service is good and they actually work to provide the best results based on our needs which is highly appreciated. You can create a hierarchy and groups and select what information you would like to show to that particular group and what you don't

Return on Investment

AkkenCloud

  • I'm unfamiliar with the ways AkkenCloud affected positively or negatively affected our overall business objectives.
  • For my position, AkkenCloud served it's purpose.
Kirah Terlip | TrustRadius Reviewer

CEIPAL ATS (TalentHire)

  • So far I have used all the options in CEIPAL TalentHire and I haven't seen any negatives about this ATS.
  • New texting option launched where you can reach candidates through text messages by using desk numbers only in order to get a hold of them quickly.
  • All positives only.
