Javelo
In my experience with using Javelo to complete my career evaluations, it generally performs adequately as long as I complete the full review in a single session. Once you're in the written question-and-answer portion of the review, the platform gives clear guidance and is easy to follow. However, if you exit the session partway through, it is difficult to find out what actions you have remaining. The dashboard language is ambiguous in this case, using terms like 'preparation' to refer to the written review (because it is in preparation for the in-person interview). Also 'finalization' means completing the written interview but there is another acknowledgment that needs to be completed after the in-person interview; it is only after this step that the full evaluation cycle is complete. Additionally, I have had the experience of my in-progress session not being saved although I took what I thought were the right steps to save my answers to return to later. After the first time this happened, I made sure to type everything in a separate document and just paste it into Javelo rather than risk having to start over again.

Workboard is well suited in any organization IMO, it allows the individual business units to quickly set, define, organize and track their respective OKR's and align them with the larger business goals. The speed at which we're able to do this with Workboard has allowed us to spend more time on the goals themselves and less time on the management of the goal-setting exercise.

  • Once you are in the review portion of the platform, following the prompts is straightforward.

Workboard Inc
  • Project management at higher level - includes tasks assignment, visual representations of the project status and deadlines
  • Increases the team members' sense of ownership - especially for people that are not used with or exposed to dedicated project management tools like Microsoft Project is.
  • User collaboration - which in turn reduces the communication via email
  • Increases the efficiency of the meetings - by quickly going through the action items and updating the task progress in the tool itself
  • Support has been outstanding so far

Cons
Javelo
  • If you exit the review before completing all prompts, the answers will not always be saved. I have had this happen twice when I couldn't finish the questions in a single sitting and despite saving my session, I had to start from the beginning.
  • When returning to an in-progress session (assuming it is saved correctly), it is less clear at what stage in the review process you are, and what is remaining.
  • I have had difficulties with the language defaulting to French on my login page and in automated emails.

  • There's a bit of a ramp time to using the service.

Javelo.io is the primary platform my company uses for reviews and interviews; the other products mentioned primarily serve as HR management and organization (such as PTO requests, employee handbooks & guidelines, salary calculator, org structure, and benefits enrollment). In that regard, Javelo.io offers a more social-focused approach to HR that is well-suited for performance reviews and interviews.

Workboard vs Microsoft Project(and its Server) is like comparing a regular sport car with Formula 1 cars. One is lighter, nicer, with a broader audience, it gets you there fast while the other one is dedicated, not as nice, especially built for it, not for everyone and it will get you there much faster.

  • Amount of time saved for managing goals had allowed us to spend more time on goal setting and tracking.
