The software is best suited for anyone reviewing and hiring candidates.

If you need to hire one person then the software is a bit overkill for you. If you are looking to hire multiple people in different departments and would like to schedule interviews with multiple candidates, then this would be a good win for you. My company is a circus company, so we have to list multiple jobs often. This allows us to track those jobs and the people with ease.

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.

  • Tracking potential candidates
  • Following up with potential candidates and creating shortlists

Cons

  • When a candidate applies via applicant tracking, there is a glitch that you have to submit that candidate a different way than other candidates by using the applied function, then submitting from there. That is a glitch that should be fixed. You should be able to submit the same way and allow the system to track that he was a candidate from applicant tracking.
  • The new alerts from notes works well. The only change I would make is it is rather slow to attach a note now since the new messages have been added to notes.
  • Email should be a bit quicker. Rather than going to the server every 5 minutes, it should pull much quicker. That ability is rather easy to fix. Especially since we receive emails on our phone much quicker than we receive from Akken.

  • Integration with third party software such as WordPress is lacking
  • Didn't really have too many other major issues with the software

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.

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.

We used to list our jobs in a WordPress post and then share those posts to social media. Candidates would respond by emails or by filling out an online form. We opted to upgrade to GoHire as we can list all our jobs in one place and provide a link on WordPress to our overall job board. This is saving us time and money, as it reduces the search that need to happen to find candidates emails or submitted forms.

Return on Investment

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

  • Time is money. This software allows us to streamline the process of listing and reviewing candidates.
  • The software allowed us to better see a "Birdseye" view of all the applicants that we have, to make more informed hiring decisions.
