NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - May 29, 2012) - Akken, the staffing efficiency improvement specialists, today announced their Growing Business Package (GBP) which provides staffing and recruiting organizations with the ability to scale the Akken Staffing platform. Akken's GBP provides a scalable, cloud-based platform to centralize information allowing staffing and recruiting organizations to improve performance and increase profitability. This package enables firms of all sizes to focus on their customers and grow their businesses with less time spent focused on managing technology requirements.

"We chose the Akken platform because we needed a cost-effective solution that could grow with us. During the past two years, we have increased our use of the Akken functionality and have doubled the amount of users," said Helene Cavanaugh, partner at TalentStaff, a Houston-based staffing and recruiting firm. "As our company continues to grow and evolve, we are confident that Akken will be right there with us. We consider them more than just a software vendor; they are a strategic partner that is important in the growth of our organization."

"As the economy is improving, many companies have limited funds, but need to find a staffing platform that will scale with them -- supporting their growth with the latest technology. Akken wants to partner with organizations to help contribute to their bottom line," said Giridhar Akkineni, Founder of Akken. "Akken's Growing Business Package enables staffing and recruiting firms of all sizes to utilize the Akken Staffing platform with confidence to support the company's growth and evolvement."

"We have been using the Akken platform for several years and are constantly impressed with the intuitive performance and speed of the solution," said Michael Stromberg, CEO of Planet Forward/Planet Pharma. "Since Akken's Staffing platform is cloud-based, we have great flexibility and can continue to access its full life-cycle capabilities as we continue to grow."

Keys to Choosing the Right Staffing Platform

A staffing platform should be both a front and back office solution, hosted in the cloud and providing features required today plus the ability to add additional features as you grow.

The benefits of cloud-based applications include:

  • Eliminating the high cost of installing servers and hardware
  • Avoiding the concern for data security and backup
  • Focusing resources on placing candidates and not on fixing business processes
  • Automatically providing functional upgrades
  • Accessing the application from anywhere, on any device

The Akken Staffing Platform has an open API which allows organizations to connect to any Cloud, Software as a Service (SaaS) or On-Premise application, providing dramatically faster time-to-value and lower cost of integration.
