NASHUA, NH -- (Marketwire) -- 12/22/11 -- Akken, the leading business software company for staffing and recruiting firms today announced the release of its latest version of the Akken Staffing platform, a powerful, yet affordable and easy-to-use cloud-based business software platform. The new platform enhancements strengthen Akken's position as the all-in-one "fill to bill" system provider for staffing and recruiting firms. The back office personnel at staffing companies no longer have to re-key in 'pay and bill rates.' The Akken Staffing platform helps to eliminate errors, save countless hours each week and boost staffing and recruiting companies' bottom line, connecting assignment information with online timesheets, payroll and billing.
Akken's latest release incorporates feedback from its users. "We continually solicit suggestions from our customers, prioritize them, and build them as quickly as possible," says David Priddle, Director of the Customer4Life Group at Akken. "We want to ensure that our customers' voices are heard and that they are a part of our development team."
This new release encompasses a series of software enhancements made throughout this year. Specifically, the link between the back office and front office at the assignment level is the backbone of the staffing and recruiting company business process. Akken Staffing also now includes the capability to merge records, thereby retaining all information stored in multiple places. In addition, the software now searches all notes made to candidate profiles and provides links to payroll providers.
"We are very pleased with this latest batch of enhancements," said Valerie Kinnard from Career Connections, a full-service staffing agency in Athens, OH. "The Akken Staffing platform provides many benefits to our organization and helps us to be more productive while reducing costs."
Akken made significant investments in its data center infrastructure and several improvements to its systems architecture this year. "These improvements help our application perform faster than any other solution in the industry," says Giridhar Akkineni, Founder of Akken. "These investments show our commitment to always providing customers with the latest technology, allowing them to focus on their business."
"The new upgrade makes managing assignments more efficient and makes the site faster and more effective as a whole," said Cora Fowler of Holland Square Group, an IT consulting, outsourcing and professional search solutions headquartered in Nashville, TN.
