Reflektive
Reflektive is well suited for medium to large organizations where cross-functional work is a regular occurrence. It isn't meant to be used for employee reviews, self-reviews, or take the place of a corporate communications platform; rather, it is meant to do one thing - serve as a public soapbox and repository for giving and receiving employee gratitude.

Sage
Sage People is well suited to small-medium sized organizations that would like a cloud-based HR solution with no need for servers or software to install. I really like the fact that it is based on Salesforce.com so you know that it will be extremely reliable and well supported. It is very flexible and customizable and can work in complex HR arrangements. For example, we have employees in nearly 60 countries and multiple HR jurisdictions and we are able to make it work for us. However, if you are moving from a traditional or customized HR system there may be a steep learning curve and you should be prepared to spend a lot of time setting up and customizing to your needs, in addition to training.

Pros
Reflektive
  • In larger organizations, it is difficult to communicate and share news with everyone without sending all-agency emails. Reflektive lets you provide that feedback or recognition for everyone to see, but saves your inbox from unnecessary emails.
  • The weekly roundup email highlights a few of the most recent recognitions. It’s nice to see a brief highlight, without having to get notifications for each post.
  • Reflektive let’s you tag multiple people in a post, so you can thank a whole team in one post.

Sage
  • Sage is highly flexible and configurable, allowing us to manage the variety of geographies and functional units in one platform.
  • Sage is highly customer focused, with great CSM support.
  • Sage People will be able to integrate with other Sage pillars such as Accounting and Payroll.

Cons
Reflektive
  • Reflektive often didn't do the best job informing users about the product changes we could expect to see.
  • Oftentimes, it was hard to know exactly who would see what in the system. We had to go to our customer service rep for a lot of questions that we wished were more thoroughly explained in the help center.

Sage
  • Training manuals are not much useful. You always need a helping hand to move forward.
  • When you have to look up employees, we have to provide their job title which I feel is not an efficient way.

Support Rating
Reflektive
Reflektive is great with support. From the beginning, when it comes to training materials for those new to Reflektive, to clearly rolling out updates in the interface or releasing new features, everything is very clear and communicated solidly. Support is always available when needed, and answers are easy to find when support is not available.

Alternatives Considered
Reflektive
Reflektive stacks up really well against its competitors because it's in all in one solution. It provides performance management tools, engagement surveys, and analytics. The majority of Reflektive's competitors only provide one of these features at most. Therefore Reflektive's competitors have to purchase multiple tools and HR teams have to use multiple tools for their employees. This creates more work not only for HR teams but for users as well.

Sage
We moved to Sage People from a 20+-year-old internally developed HR software. We also evaluated other HR software such as Kronos, SAP, and BambooHR. Ultimately, we chose Sage because of the extensive support they provided to us and the ability to customize to fit our organization's needs. We loved the fact that they were completely cloud-based and built on a reputable platform (Salesforce).
