Overall Satisfaction with PiiQ by Cornerstone

I wish I could give it a 10, but the inability to use on an iPad and the inadvertent loss of data when not using a super-strong internet connection has been an issue.
Customer support responses are always helpful, but often come 24 hours later. Sometimes issues are easily fixed (even though they can only be fixed by customer support.) I'm not sure if it is a time zone issue, or why the long lag.
We use the system for all of our office employees across the whole organization.It has helped us become more paperless by eliminating paper reviews. It also helped us to enable 360 performance reviews throughout the company.
  • Paperless performance reviews
  • 360 reviews
  • Easy end-user interface
  • Unable to use the performance system on iPad
  • Unable to work offline so data can be lost rather easily when not using a strong internet connection (airplane, wireless, etc)
The setup process is very customizable - there are so many features that can be turned on or off based on your company's culture and structure. Depending on how our current system is, it can either be recreated or start new with system defaults.

Using PiiQ by Cornerstone

400 - All of our office employees including management use the system.
2 - Our HR department (Manager and Assistant) manages all users. The HR Manager and HR VP work with department leaders to customize positions within the system to uniquely rate employees based on job functions.

We were looking for something new and different that would completely redefine the performance review process and experience for our employees and supervisors. Our previous process was an onerous paper process and this online system was the complete opposite.

PiiQ by Cornerstone Implementation

Yes - There was a lot of valuable time spent in customization of the product before implementation. Good user training material was provided as well.
Change management was minimal
