15Five
I believe if your managers can't make time to have in-person or live check-ins with their employees, the 15Five surveys and tools can create a semblance of care and follow-up, but many employees resent how impersonal it is. If you are able to have more face-to-face interactions or Zoom one-on-ones, those are almost always better-received by employees.

The platform is well suited for SMEs like me when we do not have permanent HR roles. With the platform, we can monitor
  • Their attendance
  • The employee's job rank
  • The employee's job status
  • Company, team, and individual objectives
  • There is no need for micromanagement; results are delivered based on trust, and the platform allowed us (the employer) to get rid of non-performance subtly
  • We use FlowyTeam platform in our performance review, thus it's so convenient to point it out to the individual because they already know whether they are performing or not.

Cons
15Five
  • The more business units and teams you adopt consistently using 15five, the more you see the full value.
  • Reporting - it would be helpful to see an entire org chart breakdown of the goals hit/missed at the end of each quarter.
  • Recommendations - focus points/alerts on OKRs that aren't progressing and auto-generated action items you should take would be really useful functionality.

This program is the absolute best I've ever used in 30 years with organizations. Not only do I enjoy being a user and "filling it out" every week- but I would personally buy it if available for goal tracking in my personal life I love it that much!

Usability

It's very simple to use - not overly complicated. You wouldn't need training to use. There are some features I never use because I don't understand -- like one on ones. However we use without and still find a lot of value in it!

Support Rating
15Five
15Five support is quick and helpful. We work with other vendors in the people management space and performance tracking/management who offshore their support or force us into long queues to chat for support and it just doesn't support our needs very well. 15Five is responsive and speedy. We constantly evaluate our vendors for their support and have switched vendors in the past in other areas because of limited support capabilities

Very helpful webinar training. They answer questions, the slides are all very helpful, and they send you the presentation once the webinar is complete so that you can share with your team.

Visually 15Five blows Yammer out of the water! Yammer was easy to use as well, but it felt very difficult to get on to and was not single sign-on when we were using it. 15Five allows for easy login with single sing on feature and has less "clicks" to get to where I need to be on the program. I also love the app way more than Yammer!

Trello is very good for kanban...but I like the diversity of FlowyTeam. Can be linked to Kanban and makes the software an effective action plan tool. Project management is also a plus

Return on Investment
15Five
  • It holds each employee to a certain standard by having them select their own list
  • Gives them the opportunity to reach their list of goals
  • Being able to accomplish each set goal and/or priority gives a sense of pride in each person's work as they are able to check off what has been done
  • On the negative, it can also show what the employee is not being done and may show poorly if there is a consistent pattern of not completing tasks

FlowyTeam
  • Quality of delivery is very positive
  • Team effort to ensure everyone is meeting the company's objectives and goals
  • Being able to cut loses (non-performance) fast and legally
