Lattice
It's good for completing performance reviews and setting goals. However, goals should have a different setup, as I mentioned in the previous question. The company also uses it for pulse surveys and one large survey that goes out each year. While I don't have anything to do with compiling that data, it seems to be functional for the HR team. Their goal is to make sure that large survey is as anonymous as possible and that they are able to effectively compile the data. They share it with us. The org chart could be more user-friendly too.

Pros
Lattice
  • Giving me up to date information and tasks that enable me to complete necessary training experiences.
  • Giving me a user friendly interface/platform that allows me to communicate with coworkers, supervisor, etc.
  • It notifies me when I have things to do, and when I have completed necessary tasks.
  • It gives me a bank of completed tasks so that I can chronologically follow my progress over time as I have been with my organization.

  • The default state of transparency. This helps in reinforcing the superpower of OKRs. In Ally.io, the default mode of any objective created is public (unless stated otherwise). This helps people across the organization to understand where and how the organization is progressing.
  • The above feature of transparency is also reinforced by the feature of creating dependencies. This allows for people to understand the parties involved in achieving a particular goal and creates accountability. It is clearly understood which party has not contributed enough and RCA can be done on the same.
  • It allows for integrating with a host of other tools such that the check-in process can be automated. This allows for reducing the effort of managers in terms of updating multiple tools.
  • The dashboarding feature has helped us in reducing effort spent in creating presentations for retros, planning, and demos
  • Ally.io's customer success team is among the best that I have worked it. Always ready to help, proactive, and up for the next challenge. They take the success of their customers extremely seriously. Kudos to the team for this attitude.

Cons
Lattice
  • Navigating on the website can be confusing. Webpage design can be improved.
  • Management Reviews could be more specific. They are only given one text box to provide feedback on Self-Reviews.
  • The way in which goals are set and how to edit them is confusing. Found myself with repeating goals from a previous quarter even though I tried to turn them off as they were complete.

  • Accelerate integrations and add more integrations.
  • Ally.io has room for improvement in providing benchmark in-depth analysis across industries, same-size companies, etc.
  • Ally.io can still improve upon some of its product features and communicating the releases. Videos have been extremely helpful.

Support Rating
Lattice
Lattice Support is not that good. We have had to have calls with them in the past and their product team did not have a lot of knowledge about their product. I believe they are able to provide a much better level of service and that would increase my likelihood to work with them again.

We previously used ADP's Performance Mgmt module and found it to not meet any of our needs. In the fall of 2020, I sourced/contacted three vendors - Lattice, Goal Span & Performance Culture & had demos of their offerings. Lattice checked all of the boxes we were seeking; implementation was fast & we were able to kickoff our first review the end of November as we normally do - what a huge positive difference we immediately saw!!

Again, Ally ranks very high and this is because they continuously work towards improving their software, platform and solutions. I believe that they have been very innovative and are adding important layers to help keep an OKR program culture relevant and beneficial to its customers. Ally is an opinion leader in this category and not a me-too tool.

Return on Investment
Lattice
  • At first he doesn’t make sense to fill out but after time does hold you accountable.
  • As I mentioned before it’s a great way to have positive interactions to show public restroom fashion in your company.
  • I’m not familiar with the cost but it seems like a good software and I enjoy using it.

  • Ally.io has had a positive impact so far in reducing the effort involved in managing the entire OKR program.
  • It also has brought with itself the opportunities to avail training and Q&A sessions with experts
  • Increased the overall engagement of the company with its objectives
