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 think it's great for small companies to manage their basic HR functions if they do not have a dedicated department. I'm unsure of the capabilities it holds for a large company with multiple teams to organize and how the calendaring functions across departments. But, for our team of roughly 20 folks it is simple and straightforward.

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.

  • It's great for time tracking - I can look at when and how much time I have taken off, what I am accruing each month, which helps me plan vacations and other needed time off.
  • It's a great place to share appreciation for a team member/department so all folks can see without clogging inboxes with emails.
  • It's a great go-to place for company information and policies - no digging through the server or emailing HR for documents and questions.

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.
Kirah Terlip | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • I would like even more capabilities, but I think that has to do with how we are using the site.
  • I would like to receive email notifications once a week with a summary of activity in TribeHR, including time-off scheduled by my team and any new documents or information that has been added.
  • I'd like reminders if I am going to go over my time off that is allotted to carry over into the new year and other pertinent vacation, floating holiday, sick time notifications.

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.

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

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.

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.
Jamie Burchell | TrustRadius Reviewer

We did not previously have an HR product at our company. As stated earlier in my review, we often had to send emails back and forth with our CEO and part-time CFO to get answers regarding policies, payroll and time-off. This has eased the load for these two individuals so that they can focus on the business and revenue.

Return on Investment

AkkenCloud

  • I'm unfamiliar with the ways AkkenCloud affected positively or negatively affected our overall business objectives.
  • For my position, AkkenCloud served it's purpose.
Kirah Terlip | TrustRadius Reviewer

Netsuite SuitePeople

  • As I stated it has alleviated numerous back and forth emails with our CFO (who is only available PT) and CEO (who is often too busy to spend time on HR functions) - this has allowed for easy answers to basic HR questions.
  • It has allowed us to track all employee time-off in one place, saving us time from checking each individual Outlook calendar for scheduling purposes.
  • It has allowed us to direct all employees to one place for core HR documents and information, ensuring that folks are always getting the same answers to their inquiries.
