AkkenCloud

AkkenCloud was definitely a positive experience for me. My position at The Liberty Group was my first position as a recruiter so AkkenCloud was my first introduction to any kind of Applicant Tracking software. My experience with AkkenCloud was positive, the system was easy to use.

It's perfect for small teams that are not recruiting at scale, but need a more efficient process vs. Google Sheets, email, etc

Cons

AkkenCloud

  • I would like the ability to color coordinate my calendar. Currently the only option is blue (and red if I have not accepted the invite).
  • There are times when the system crashes for seemingly no reason. This can be frustrating.
  • It's not always easy to identify when there are multiple entries made into the system.

We are very likely to renew. If there was one reason why I wouldn't it is the reporting section. Running reports in Akken is cumbersome compared to Bullhorn. I would like the ability the pull up a report that states the number of calls my people are making. It's difficult to do in Akken. This would be the only factor in us not renewing.

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.

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

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.

Return on Investment

AkkenCloud

  • Having everything in one place and being able to quickly reference key information on the home screen helps save time and increase productivity.
  • The ability to effectively set follow ups allows me to remain prompt on my tasks.
  • The ability to share documents and keep all of our documents electronic allows us to better streamline our processes.
