Akken Staffing Software Solution Gains Momentum and Fans

New Features Have Customers Recommending the Akken Staffing Software Platform

NASHUA, NH -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- Akken, the staffing efficiency improvement specialists, today released the results of their quarterly user survey. The results showed that more than 95 percent of Akken users would recommend Akken to a friend or a colleague. More than 600 users responded to the quarterly user survey distributed as part of the Akken "Cust4Life," a program established to help Akken users maximize the solution.

"As part of our Customer for Life program, we started querying our users on a quarterly basis," said Giridhar Akkineni, founder of Akken. "The truest measure of a customer's satisfaction is their willingness to tell others about our product."

"Akken continues to listen to its clients and make improvements to the system," said Marcia Wheatley of Ruthi Postow Staffing, a boutique administrative staffing firm and Akken client.

Customers have been reacting favorably to the flood of new features and functionality added to the Akken Staffing software platform including the release of the Akken Open API. This API enables the Akken Staffing software platform to be easily integrated with various third party solutions. The company has signed a number of new partnerships. Following are a few of these partnership integrations released over the last few months. Akken has partnered with:

  • The Code Works to integrate with more than 25 Vendor Management Systems to automate job order delivery.
  • InsightSquared to provide access to dashboards and business intelligence analytics to make data-driven decisions.
  • Integrated Design, Inc. to integrate the Akken Staffing Platform with more than 250 Payroll Providers.
  • Advance Payroll Funding, Ltd. to provide options for funding and payroll services.
  • Data Frenzy to provide seamless sourcing from LinkedIn and other social media, and to seamlessly post jobs to hundreds of job boards.

Akken has several other partnership integrations that are currently in development including several other social media sourcing tools, time clock systems and background checking services.
