Akken, the all-in-one on demand staffing software and recruiting software provider, announced today that it has signed an agreement with Madison Resource Funding, a privately held company that offers independent staffing services with funding and back office support. This collaboration allows Akken’s clients to outsource their payroll, accounts receivable, and payables. Both companies see this as a mutually beneficial alliance.
Shirley Jones, Akken’s VP of Sales says, “This partnership benefits our mutual clients by providing a seamless transition of critical financial information from Akken Staffing™ allowing Madison to efficiently perform its back office operations. The result of this exciting alliance is that both of our companies have solutions that help our clients focus on growing their businesses and doing what they do best, which is putting people to work.”
National Marketing Director of Madison Resource Funding, Sue Benuck agrees. “Combining Akken’s powerful, easy to use front end with our 100 percent funding, payroll, and tax services, makes sense. Like Akken, we offer great value and both companies are customer service driven.”
According to Jones, “Madison Resource Funding has a great client base, a strong back office team, and knowing that they’ve been around for more than twenty-five years, they are one of the most established companies in the industry and a good fit for Akken’s clients.”
Instrumental in initiating this partnership, Gayle Fallon, an account executive with Madison, recognized the robust functionality and ease of use of Akken Staffing and thinks “it is great for our clients’ growing companies.”
Benuck sums up the partnership this way, “We’re taking the best of both worlds by linking Akken’s front end and Madison’s back office and funding company.”
