Overall Satisfaction with Visier

We have been live with Visier People about 15 months now and I can say I continue to be extremely satisfied overall, and often ecstatic, with its performance. I personally am hitting the point where I am in Visier for 25-35% of my efforts, which I never thought was possible after my 90% SAP HR life. :-)
Our current primary user base includes our HR Business Partners, Diversity & Inclusion, Employee Resource Group leaders, and our HR Leadership Team.
Besides employee demographics/starts/exits/movement information, we have implemented employee engagement, recognition. In process is Talent Acquisition (applicants, requisitions). On the horizon - Compensation, possibley Workforce Planning and L&D. Rolling out to business users/people managers, including our Senior Leadership Team, is on our roadmap, but we're not quite there yet.
  • Easy to go deep
  • Filters and group-by options let you get to the exact populations
  • The pre-built guidebooks and questions are exceptional and make it easy for dive-in
  • You can quickly build multiple charts/tables for the same dataset, finding the most intuitive view
  • Aggregate thresholds are less than user-friendly - it's a great idea but limited in actionable rollout. It needs to include alerts that data is being hidden/suppessed because when the counts don't make sense/match users begin to question validity.
  • Multi-level tables are limited. Works great for 2-level, eg., Gender by Ethnicity. But if you want to throw in a third, eg. Disability, the output is not easy to read.
  • Building a library of analyses is great, but gets a bit wieldy to manage. Folders would help.
  • Love the idea of benchmarks but these do not really work as well as we'd hoped, least for our industry/size.
  • QUICK turnaround on reporting progress on our diversity & inclusion aiming points
  • Able to transition several high visibility reports/analyses that were previously done manually to Visier
The primary drivers for our selection of Visier:
  • Pre-built guidebooks and questions
  • "Easy" and swift implementation
  • Visier's experience with SAP HR
  • Cost
Visier is well suited for trends and comparing metrics over time by group. It is also well suited to explore and ask broad questions as it has lots of pre-built analyses, guidebooks. Visier is a quick way to visualize the data with different ways to look at the same dataset, one of which may more easily turn on a light bulb.

It is less appropriate for trends and comparing metrics over time IF by organization, and your org structure moves/changes a lot.
