AkkenCloud

Akken works very well with every browser, which is a huge selling point for us since we are a Mac shop. The selling point I would add is that it works better on Firefox, which is one of the most secure browsers on the internet. Bullhorn and other competitors do not work on Firefox

Hireology

It is well suited for anyone who wants to save time in the hiring process. It is very helpful for teams without a large HR dept or staff. For teams that need multiple people to rate and review candidates

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.

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.

I don't have much to compare Hireology to other than posting on different job boards. Hireology is better because one post does it all!

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.
