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.

Well getting surveys from clients is a hectic job (as a user we all ignore surveys all the time ) SurveySparrow comes to the rescue and provides links to forward your survey on WhatsApp, email, and so many options. You can create a copy of the survey which you created and that is very time efficient. Suppose you have 3 clients and you give them the same service you can add a variable that will simply change the name of the client and the rest of the survey stays the same no need to create a different survey, mega time saver.

  • Creating and sending surveys is very easy and intuitive, no instructions needed. The interface is clean and inviting.
  • The mobile-first interface greatly increases response rates form my experience. Filling out a survey is like text messaging on your phone.
  • Surveys are more conversational in tone rather than an answer to the question style of the survey most other companies offer.
  • The feature set is not as robust as some other survey software but its simplicity makes it easy to use all around.
  • Customer support is very responsive.

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
15Five
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!

We originally used Survey Monkey but found customer support to be unresponsive when we needed it and also the style of surveys you could create were bland and boring, leading to lower response rates. We chose Survey Sparrow for their mobile-first and chat-style survey interface because we have a mobile audience and have found they prefer this style of survey better.

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

  • Easy to set-up and use - pays off quickly.
