Pros

  • Notes about candidates are the most helpful because as a recruiter, we talk to so many people a day that it is common to forget the details of some conversations.
  • Being able to notify other people in the organization about notes that are put in is very beneficial if the note needs to be in the system and someone should know about it!
  • Being able to open "candidates" or "job orders" or something else in a new tab is great because then we can have the inbox open while also the candidate notes open, for example.

  • Provides a full picture and a history of the relationship the organization had with an applicant.
  • Every step in the recruitment/hiring process is done through the ATS software.
  • Navigation within the program is easy and user-friendly. From sending an invitation to a denial-note it is there easily accessible.

Cons

  • Akken logs me out ALL the time, which is extremely frustrating.
  • Sometimes Akken takes a very long time to post a note about a candidate, job, or something else.

  • The system needs to be updated. It's simple and easy to use, but it is way outdated.
  • Roll out upgrades frequently and more timely.
  • Need calendar integration, social media integrations, CRM to application.

Usability

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.

The product is very intuitive to the end users and our online documentation seems sufficient to train our new employees.

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

On the previous rating scale, I kept thinking "it depends". If I know it's an easy question or easy fix, the response is super fast. If I know I am asking something complex, custom or I just know it's not going to be able to be answered by 1st tier, it can take some time. I have worked on these issues with them (they are all very nice) I do now have avenues for finding things out from one person. We had one issue where we had a major problem and it required a software patch and their support team worked throughout the weekend to create, QA, and deliver the patch as promised. I was very impressed

Return on Investment

  • I think it has greatly improved our customer service in the sense that we can quickly look back on a candidate and remember the exact conversation we had with them by looking at the notes.

  • It has done its job of a basic applicant tracking system.
