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.

I have been using it for the last four years and in most of the cases it worked amazing. There is no such scenario where it was like less appropriate. I would really like reporting and hot list features. It helps me to save a lot of time and effort. Moreover, There are such instances where my company need to fetch the data of hires and it works amazingly well.

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.

  • Email merging is a perfect tool I constantly use from this program.
  • The ability to leave notes that are simple to read.
  • The fact that we use a texting program and it automatically enters a note on the account.
  • Being able to look for open jobs when they are properly entered in the program's database.

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.

  • System could be updated maybe—appearance wise it looks a bit outdated.
  • Setting up an alert function
  • Having the emails sent and received collected better in the data

AkkenCloud is the closest application to incorporate staffing, billing, and candidate/employee tracking all in one package.

Tahill, Inc is not a traditional staffing agency and I'm not interested in being one. JobDiva is best suited for staffing firms that do not have a home grown system.

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.

Its easy to use for me. but a few of my recruiters having difficulty using it. They have problems with mail merge, opting out from mail merge. They are also unable to find other options like applicants, doing some basic settings, sending mail merge again and again for the same job, avoiding sending emails to uninterested candidates etc.

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

Over all I think JobDiva works well. It has some issues from time to time, but the support staff seems to handle it quickly. The major issue is the email merges getting black listed as spam. That takes away a very important JobDiva feature. That is our major functionality complaint these days

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.

JobDiva was simpler, with more ease of use and more ability to customize.

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.
