Overall Satisfaction with Talentsoft

We currently use Talentsoft for our annual performance reviews which include individual goal, compentcy levels and comments from both the manager and employee. Areas for improvement are also listed on the review. Talentsoft is being used throughout our entire international organization, with the USA being one of the last countires to implement the software. Using Talentsoft adds a level conformity to our reviews and makes analyzing employees performance much easier.
  • Having the reviews in Talentsoft makes it much easier for one person to manage the entire process from start to finish.
  • When an employee switches managers during the year, the delegation feature makes it very easy to have the previous manager add their input to the employees review.
  • Being able to have a daily import file from our HR system into Talentsoft helps in having the information in Talentsoft be current.
  • I would like to have access edit and update the goal section throughout the year, not just during the review period.
  • The reporting function is very cumbersome and needs to have easier ways to create custom reports.
  • Streamline the create a review template process.
  • Email notification for employees to let their manager know when they have completed entering information in Talentsoft.
  • Positive - Managers and employees have access to their reviews without having to contact HR.
  • Positive - Management of the entire review process is less manual and takes less time.
I think SuccessFactors is more flexible to customer needs when creating review templates and allowing access to goals year round. They also track changes for the goals. Talentsoft was selected by our corporate office before I started with the company.
I think some of my problems with Talentsoft aren't so much the fault of the software as it is how my company is organized. I have to enter many different property levels so that a review gets created, I'm not certain that these fields are required by Talentsoft or by my corporate office.

This software is not suited for companies where a segment of the employees do not have a company email address and/or access to a company computer.
