AkkenCloud

Akken could be described to be suitable for a staffing company but just spend more money on a product that is worthwhile. It is really a terrible ATS and it's a sad fact that I was not here for the selection process. Apparently people pushed for Bullhorn but it was deemed too expensive. That is shortsighted.

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 had issues with AkkenCloud randomly shutting down.
  • Payroll - AkkenCloud wasn't as user friendly when I was trying to input time and process payroll.

JobDiva

  • 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.

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

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.

JobDiva is one of the best applicant tracking systems - it's easy for recruiters to use and provides the ability to quickly build a search and filter millions of resumes of available candidates with the required levels of experience, skills or attributes. Jobdiva itself is a very intelligent and powerful tool to recruit and source qualified candidates.

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

I give it a 1 because I couldn't give it a Zero. Horrible functionality, very ugly interface, and incredibly unfriendly to use. This system will offer nothing positive. It will only slow you down and make your workplace much more inefficient. If you are in the staffing industry where fast-paced is a way of life, this will only hurt you in the end.

The support is incredible. Quick, concise, and extremely helpful. Not a single application that I admin now, or have ever in the past, comes even close to JobDiva'. JobDiva is one of the best applicant tracking system that I have used so far. It is user friendly

This is a SaaS platform so the implementation is easy. One thing to consider is to make sure your organization has agreed to this system. Not all will like it but atleast everyone must understand how this will impact Staffing efforts in a positive way. Once everyone is bought then the rest is smooth. The reason I mention this is because after the implementation some where reluctant to change thus not maximizing JOBDIVA to its full capacity.

Alternatives Considered

AkkenCloud

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.
