Pingboard
Best Suited Scenarios There are many organizations that have employees working remotely or have consultants working for them. In this situation, the team never knows each other and hence team formation never happens but with the introduction of Pingboard, we can connect all these team members and let them know each other and form a team with strong bonding. Less Suited Scenarios Handling a huge team with too many departments and each department having too many project managers becomes an issue with Pingboard as it has quite a few limitations.

Well-suited for companies looking to get better feedback from employees. It's probably perfect for my organization (around 80 employees) because our COO can respond directly to our concerns. It might be less effective for larger organizations, but I can't speak much to that.

TINYpulse
  • TINYpulse provides a nice, prepackaged survey platform with a library of suggested questions to use and hard-coded timelines and processes... so it is truly a "plug and play" tool.
  • The platform produces some graphics and other methodology for assisting HR in delivering survey results to the rest of the executive team and/or to share with employees.
  • TINYpulse does a DYNAMIC job in selling the message that the employee's responses are anonymous. Not sure if it is a generational issue or the result of younger generations watching a parent go thru a RIF or other job elimination, but the notion of radically-candid feedback is not one which I've found to be present with many Millennials (here or in past organizations), so this is a big selling point for TINYpulse.
  • The TINYpulse platform offers a "Cheers for Peers" program, allowing the company to promote another form of peer-to-peer recognition which can even be linked to Slack (or nearly any business-based instant messaging system) to create a constant feed for all to see those receiving recognition for going above-and-beyond.

  • TINYpulse sometimes makes updates to their app and website, and when navigating as an admin, I have found some of the links to be broken after an update.
  • The pricing structure of TINYpulse has changed since we first began using it, changing from a pay per user amount to a bulk-buy amount. This led to some confusion when we went to add more users.

Alternatives Considered
Pingboard
Pingboard has got every feature-loaded that an organizational chat board requires to connect its employees. Microsoft Teams have got the teams set up for organization but it lacks in making personal bonding between the team and employees. Pingboard has got an edge over Microsoft Teams in the chat board setup. It also offers a detailed report of every profile which Microsoft Teams doesn't offer.

TINYpulse provided the most-competitive pricing of all vendors considered, with the greatest flexibility of use with desktop, mobile app, and operating system. While customer support proposed by others appeared to be closer to "live" or real-time, with closer to the 24/7 kind of environment in which we live/work in today, budget was a driving factor for us.

  • It's an easy way to get feedback and suggestions. I think it contributes to the team culture of wanting to always question and improve.
  • It's an easy way to build rapport among teammates and I think contributes to overall sense of team building (especially for a dispersed team).
  • It's an easy way to keep your finger on the overall pulse of the team and allows management to be able to quickly address any frustrations or issues before they become bigger concerns.
