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 amazingly. There is no scenario where it was less appropriate. I 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 needs to fetch the data of hires and it works amazingly well.

Pros

AkkenCloud

  • Automatically keeps a record of activities such as email conversations related to a candidate.
  • Time and date stamp on events logged to a candidate and customer is a great resource.
  • Completing full company profiles with all contacts is very helpful for later efficiency.

JobDiva

  • JobDiva has excellent integration with outside tools. For example it syncs with Outlook and Google Calendar. We also use a text messaging tool called TextUs and it is totally seamless and painless to set up.
  • JobDiva continuously adds new features to help our organization. Even small changes can make a world of difference! For example, it indicates for us when a candidate has "opened" one of our email merges! So we know when a candidate has read our email but has not replied or responded to our communications. It allows us to create Hotlists so we can build better pipelines of candidates.
  • Templates are also easy to create in JobDiva! We can customize messages and communications that we send out to candidates and workers.

Cons

AkkenCloud

  • 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.

  • Finding Junior Candidates. It becomes a tough task when we get the requisitions from client that are of lower level.
  • The JobDiva harvests resumes after 1-2 days they are uploaded on the job portal. I personally experienced it when I was using Careerbuilder simultaneously and saw a few candidates which appeared on the portal which came 1-2 days later into JobDiva's database.
  • There is no option to look for resumes at two different Zip Codes simultaneously. For example, if a job accepts candidates from local to two particular cities (in different states), there needs to be an option to enter the zip code of the respective cities.

We are very likely to renew. If there was one reason why I wouldn't it is the reporting section. Running reports in Akken is cumbersome compared to Bullhorn. I would like the ability the pull up a report that states the number of calls my people are making. It's difficult to do in Akken. This would be the only factor in us not renewing.

We are renewing it every time because it is our main source engine for resumes which we get requirements from clients. As it is also cheapest in price and excellent in providing multiple features at low cost we will renew this again and again. We will use this for a long time.

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

It helps in keeping a track of the company's performances by generating reports categorically Active, Rehired, Terminated, On-Bench, etc. They also provide a reminder if someone's assignment is approaching an end or you can get the alerts about birthdays and anniversaries. They also keep an inventory of the data wherein you can update the expiration of various important documents and set an alarm for the same. It assists in maintaining the date of our clients, vendors, suppliers, and contractors as well as internal employees. There is so much to offer for all departments. The payroll team can collect timesheets and generate financial reports using the 'Back Office' tools.

Alternatives Considered

AkkenCloud

AkkenCloud was the first software I used in my career as a recruiter. Since using Akken, I have used TempWorks, Avionte, and JobScience/SalesForce. I do like Akken.

Prior to JD we used a system called Resumate, which was very outdated to the point we could not edit a note after making it. although a small feature having the ability on JD really helps. We also could not submit candidates via resumate, receive notifications or list job requisitions

Return on Investment

AkkenCloud

  • Having everything in one place and being able to quickly reference key information on the home screen helps save time and increase productivity.
  • The ability to effectively set follow ups allows me to remain prompt on my tasks.
  • The ability to share documents and keep all of our documents electronic allows us to better streamline our processes.

JobDiva

  • Negative impact would come from it not being used by employees
  • When used it adds value in so many ways; time saving, money saving in that once information is pulled in or entered in - it does not have to be researched again - it is there for future
  • The old if someone gets hit by a bus scenario, JobDiva allows for the bus to keep going.
