AkkenCloud

I don't know many other scenarios, as I have been with this company for 13 years and in this industry for roughly 25 years. It is a tool that is well suited for our company and this industry in general. As a staffing company, you can accomplish nearly everything imaginable with this tool. The only area I have seen that might not be ideal is if you wanted to run all kinds of metrics. You can run a variety of reports in Akken, the data fields are limited sometimes and one would think that wouldn't need to be the case. You should be able to put whatever data you want in any field to create the report you need.

Paycor

With Paycor it is very easy to process payroll (according to my payroll manager) lots of fields for data and customization the EDI department is really helpful and friendly reporting is easy to figure out and customizing reports is great we run 12 payrolls and transfer employees between payrolls is challenging and a lot of manual work (doesn't bring over deductions, etc.) ACA reporting is easy geofencing was great but now I believe we have to manually turn it on by employee sometimes I've waited over an hour for someone to answer the support calls.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paycor

  • Having all employee information in one place is one of the best things about Paycor.
  • When we have new documentation, we can easily have all employees sign to confirm they read and accept the changes made with a few simple uploads and clicks.
  • It has made our employee onboarding experience much more streamlined and efficient.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

AkkenCloud

  • This is the worst ATS I've ever used. It's hard to find what you need. It's not set up in a coherent manner and things are all over the place.
  • I have to download a resume just to view it.
  • The parse function only works in Internet Explorer and it works poorly then. Makes it impossible to tell if its actually a duplicate because it flags everything.
  • No section for meaningful notes. Notes are all just reports of action.
  • No way to make it efficient for direct hires. All geared towards staffing so it makes you fill out non-sense information that will be inaccurate and irrelevant just to satisfy field requirements.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paycor

  • Increase the frequency with which our representative contacts us. Paycor moves at such a fast pace that our representative is always changing
  • After the first year, I think you should have a team meeting to go over how things are set up and make any necessary changes

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

The product is really good overall. The customer service is not the best and the benefits administration is kind of painful. However, the good outweighs the bad. We might get a different benefit admin system that can be integrated into Paycor. My controller doesn't want to switch anything 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.

I was able to experience this software and now know at this point
in time how much it has improved my performance and my co-worker's performance. Paycor has been a great aid for a project that just started; while I didn't use the full spectrum of tools that the software offers, I am one
hundred percent sure that it will make a positive change in any task force.

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

The best support we have received has been from sales. Customer success is pretty much a joke. We have been yelled at by customer success reps; been told to take a screenshot of something we are not seeing; been told there are no issues on there in when Akken hadn't been working for hours, only to have it magically fixed shortly after we reported the problem; and been told engineering was working on a problem for weeks without resolution. If you are going to be working with IT Staffing companies, you have to understand that we have a modicum of knowledge in IT, and you can't BS us. Honesty will get you a lot farther than stringing us along with BS.

I'd give a zero if that were an option. I currently have multiple requests for support that have not been answered in over a week. I have called their support phone line and usually hung up after waiting for 45 minutes for someone to answer. It is unlikely to get a quick response, EVER, even to urgent problems that effect taxes and benefit submission.

Implementation of any new software is going to be challenging, especially if you are maintaining an existing program concurrently. When it is time for dual-processing (both old and new software) prior to going live, be prepared to be stressed. But trust the process and it will be over soon.

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

Paycor

We selected Paycor b/c we were looking for a more streamlined onboarding interface, a better self-service portal, an easier phone app, and we also track extensive payroll details in our GL. On all of these points, we've been disappointed with Paycor's performance (especially as compared to their promises during the sales process).

Return on Investment

AkkenCloud

  • Sometimes the system is slow and the process of hiring someone is lengthy so it takes a long time to complete it so it takes away from other things I could be working on
  • It’s easy and quick to manage candidates to show what process they’re in
Megan Sloan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paycor

  • They handle all of the numbers and tax forms, things that I HATE doing!
  • I can run my payroll in less than 5 minutes because their portal puts all of the information at my fingertips.
  • I like relying on their professionals to deal with different tax and unemployment offices in different states. They know their stuff.
  • Paycor is not the cheapest service out there, but they deliver Cadillac service and performance on a Volkswagen budget.
