AkkenCloud

AkkenCloud is used basically every second at our organization and I believe it would come in very handy at a staffing organization however, it might not be the best for companies that only use it sometimes.

It is best for an organization with a less standard employee recruitment structure, who also have a limited need for automation. It will support all basic features, like job posting, importing candidates to the job, scheduling interviews, and assigning tasks for candidate interviews.

  • Pipeline features need to be improved so that we can map out our recruitment process onto the platform.
  • Can we get options for embedding a carrier's web page into our existing website, to show all of our published jobs?
  • Implementing a simple UI to push our job into third party websites, or an API which helps us find most known job portals.
  • We need some assessment features for various jobs, including mine, so it will also a necessary part of every recruitment application.

This question is not applicable to me as I no longer work for The Liberty Group and I didn't make these decisions for The Liberty Group.

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

Based on 1 answer
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

Alternatives Considered

AkkenCloud was the first software I used in my career as a recruiter. Since using Akken, I have used TempWorks, Avionte, and JobScience/SalesForce. I do like Akken.

We are unable to fully customize the pipeline according to our organization's needs. We are stuck and unable to show all the jobs posted to our carrier's website in one place. And we also have faced problems to make an assessment of candidates for different jobs, which helps to check multiple eligibilities of the candidate.
