I used Gallup Access for the CliftonStrengths assessment and I do believe it was a great platform for that to be on. However, it took me a second to figure out if I was on the correct website. I'm not sure how, but being able to easily see that taking the assessment on this website would be super helpful. I think I struggled with it because CliftonStrengths book was red and white and the website is black and green. Colors are important when people are looking for certain products.

The company dashboard allows colleagues to stay up to date on quarterly progress. Read full review Cons I want a drop down button available in all parts of the website on the upper left hand corner I'd love to see major companies that use Gallup Access - might have more of a desire to use the website if name brands are on there Read full review User setup and management and team/department creation is not a trivial effort. Requires some deliberate planning. The deadlines for plans don't connect to the due dates for tasks in systems of record. That can get confusing when Asana says a task is due next week but Weekdone still has a due date of tomorrow. I'd love to see more contextual support for sections like employee feedback. Maybe a sentence or two suggesting feedback based on the report's weekly entry. If a person had three Problems and only one Progress, Weekdone could suggest some corrective action to make it easier for the management to mitigate problems before they get ugly.

We have a lunch and learn session with Weekdone next week so they can share their tips and tricks for making the most out of the platform. Since we have been using the platform for a while already, this will be helpful so we can ensure we are making the most of the tool.

GA is a very professional tool, in my past experience, other platforms had felt very lacking, they cover what is needed but GA has really lived up to the expectations, I was surprised by what it does and then some more, there are still some aspects that need more polishing but you get over them with time.

Weekdone started as a pilot within a single team so we didn't have a formal evaluation and selection process. When the pilot was over, we had developed a skill and affinity for the tool with no clear objections, so no other tools were considered. Our process for regular evaluation of incumbent technology at renewal time asks us to consider the cost to value ratio and user adoption/satisfaction. I don't anticipate there being any reason to consider alternatives, other than the long term viability of small software companies.
Read full review Return on Investment I can't give numbers yet but we have been able to split our most recent project up based on our strengths outlined by cliftonstrengths Another positive impact is that we were able to bond as a team, we just got jumbled up and put on a new team so the ability to connect with our manager was really awesome Read full review Using Weekdone has helped us meet our quarterly business objectives by tracking each employee's progress. We have been able to shift resources based on the progress tracked in Weekdone. If we find that a particular project is taking too long or costing too much, we are able to evaluate as needed. We were not able to see this as easily without Weekdone. Read full review ScreenShots Gallup Access Screenshots
