Likelihood to Recommend

If you are a growing company looking to align everyone's goals this is a great software. I also recommend it to anyone who does weekly 1:1s so nothing is forgotten or slips through the cracks. It makes it easier to hold employees accountable for certain tasks and projects and to get status updates. It is also a great tool for pulse-checks.

Avero Slingshot

If you need to have a visual front end for anything that is not hard to set up then this is the product to use. It does require someone with some coding knowledge but if you don't [have that] I am sure support can help as needed. The 2-factor authentication is great once we went live.

Cons

15Five

  • questions can be redundant
  • Notifications and the reminders seem constant. I'm still getting a "congrats" on my anniversary pop-up every time I log in (from 3 months ago) and I exit out constantly.

Avero Slingshot

  • Once it is set up it's a bit cumbersome to tweak some of the canned reports.
  • Change colors in theme.
  • Secure log in during testing.

Alternatives Considered

15Five

The great advantage of Quick Base is that you can pretty much mimic the functionality of an app like 15Five on it. That, however, is easier said than done because it is difficult to find talented Quick Base developers and the cost model of Quick Base can make it prohibitively expensive for most mid-sized organizations.

Avero Slingshot

Overall reviews and after speaking to several companies using Avero it was the clear choice. We looked at many more than just the couple we reviewed but those 2 we narrowed down due to similar cost and features. Slingshot was just easier to understand and implement into our environment.

Return on Investment

15Five

  • It is extremely difficult to gauge ROI for a tool like 15Five, but as a company, we've found a lot of value in it for byte-sized, weekly performance management.
