Pros

Cons

  • 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.

  • Better training videos (not sure where to even find them)
  • UI improvements for Admin

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.

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

Alternatives Considered

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.

While Freshteam is almost as good as Recruiterbox, for a high volume recruiting environment, the free version of Freshteam won't meet your team's needs. Recruiterbox is expensive, but worth the cost for high volume recruiting environments. I previously used MightyRecruiter, but there were way too many bugs & outages/downtime. I would not recommend MightyRecruiter

Return on Investment

  • Better applicant tracking. Works extremely well to keep our candidates organized and easily submit and track our candidates through the interviewing process.
  • Employees and on point quicker. They have a task bar to accomplish every day.
  • The increase in resumes coming from our website has been unbelievable since we added the ability to publish our job orders from Akken to our site.

  • Increased number of interns we're able to hire which has really helped move the needle on special projects.
  • Decreased costs - we're using the free version.
