Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

Although I am not with the same company anymore, I would have been very likely to renew. In the face of cost cutting efforts, the business may be forced to look at cheaper solutions, but they will sacrifice functionality and ease of use for all users if they opt for a cheaper solution.

Excellent product. Not perfect but as good as any that I have heard of. Price was reasonable to get started and once implemented made reviews a breeze. Of all the software companies I have worked with they are the best with regard to customer focus and understanding what their customers need. Excellent user conferences as well. Not much bad to say, great experience.

At this point, I would also love to see what other systems have to offer. But we have gotten to a place in which our employee population understands the system, our HR Managers can all use the back end, and for the most part it works for our staff. I am always very pleased with Halogen's customer support, constant upgrades, and think the system is continuously improving and have been pleased-to-date.

So far, my experience with Halogen has been a very positive one. I would rate it higher, except due to a few limits to the system we had a few departments opt not to use Halogen for reviews this year. Their evaluation forms were quantitative, and could not be replicated in Halogen. I am hoping that we can come up with a creative solution for next year, but since we implemented and went live with Halogen in a condensed timeframe, it was not possible to meet everyone's needs. Ultimately, we are still quite happy with the product since a vast majority of our corporate workforce was able to use it.

Implementing a new system and process company wide is never an easy task. We moved so quickly in such a short period of time that we were able to learn quickly but also have the opportunity to improve the Halogen experience. We will more than likely will renew our use of Halogen as we already are seeing a small impact which hopefully in the long run will lead to a greater impact.
