PeopleStrong
As we are all working online, and sometimes employees have to be on fieldwork PeopleStrong have the option of location-based check-in which makes it very convenient to ensure work is happening. Every document has to be verified and passed on in the software hence assuring no forgery is happening. As a user, I am able to set goals and achieve them, view my employment history definitely gives a sense of self-achievement too. The constant reminders ensure all assigned tasks are met and completed. I do not see any inappropriate instance, as this has been anything but very useful for our organization

  • Access level could use some improvement for the users. i.e. limited documents tab access vs. eforms tab vs limited portal editing access.
  • Ability to give their administrators more access. i.e. manage and edit team members
  • Ability to give their administrators more access for control over paid e-forms
  • User friendlier way to upload regular documents.
  • Reporting!!!

This has been the cheapest option compared to others and it has a lot of modules to choose as options. I am not on the decision-making committee to choose the app as a user PeopleStrong had made the people strong. As a growing organization with multiple users around the world, the need to have an app that has smooth working on the phone is a major reason to switch to PeopleStrong
