15Five

15Five is well suited for businesses/groups that are transparent, and willing to share information. If an organization was not a place where information is freely shared, it would not be helpful. Although, it could improve the level of transparency, as members of the organization could have space where they feel comfortable to share information. There are several different privacy settings within the each 15Five, so users can choose what they want to share. Also, it's best to make sure you/your organization has the time to use 15Five. It can be time-consuming for users, but also for those reviewing employees 15Five. It can be a lot of information to sift through. However, the layout of the software is easy to engage with and digest, which is helpful! Additionally, it's important to share with the team how 15Five works, and why it's being utilized. Depending on the questions that are set up within the software, it would seem a bit invasive to some. However, if a clear expectation is set prior to use 15Five, this may not be an issue.

Pros

  • Weekly goals and accomplishments: This is the core of what we use 15Five for. Any employee with varied daily job responsibilities fills out a 15Five report that mentions their accomplishments for the week that went by and their goals for the upcoming week. Wash, rinse and repeat.
  • Customizability: 15Five provides a lot of options to customize the questions that employees need to answer on their weekly reports.
  • Tagging: You can tag your colleagues in your report, so it's a great way to get somebody's attention within the company.
  • Visibility: Individual 15Five reports are visible to everybody up the chain, so it's a great tool for business leaders to get a pulse of the organization.

  • Paycom has a reliable customer support service that ensures that all of your concerns are addressed on time.
  • In case of problems in setting up the software, the vendor offers training to new users either online, in person or documentation.
  • Manages and submits payroll on time.

Cons

  • While it is possible to generate custom reports based on historical data, the interface is not very robust. For instance, you cannot filter your reports based on, say, departments.

  • I'd like to see the user and client login credentials managed as a true multilevel authentication instead of needing to log in to separate applications.
  • I'd like to see a free SSO implementation.
  • It'd be cool to see an API framework to allow more integration into other LOB applications. Expense management could flow directly from my corporate credit card accounts into Paycom if I had an API for expense management. (Example)

Alternatives Considered

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.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • The system saves us many man hours and salary costs due to the online capabilities of the program. I was able to reduce the admin staff by one full member just due to the lack of paper shuffling because of Paycom's documents section.
