It has taught us to have a clear and realistic purpose in performance management

Review Source: Capterra

From start we have worked with the support team and integration with our other platforms was simple. Now we can track performance of our employees, coach them on weaker areas and reward them on achievements, all these are done automatically with the system.

Pros
Performance management needs to have a purpose and that's what Performance pro is helping us to achieve in our organization. Mostly, it has helped us to integrate learning and performance so that we let our employees get coaching on tasks they have low performance on. We are also able to monetize performance and reward our employees accordingly. We are able to track our employees from check-in, tasks worked on, goal achievement, areas that need improvement and overall performance. In addition, this software has a beautiful user interface and it is easy to use as it also integrates very well with our other platforms including our accounting platform.

Cons
We have used performance pro for years and we have never been disappointed, the support team is just awesome as they worked with us from start up to now.

I have been using this software for more years that I can count. It has improved throughout the years. It is easy to use, there's nothing complicated in it.

Pros
I like that it gives you generic wording. This helps especially if you get stuck. I like the spell check on it. I love that I don't have to save after each correction, factor or goal.

Cons
If I want to copy a goal comment (for example) from another performance review I have to go to that other person's review (of course) then it doesn't just take me to their review it takes me to the factors. If I'm on a particular goal then I switch to another person I want it to take me where I was on the previous persons review. It would be nice to have a comparison of what was written on each review so we don't have to flip back and forth.

Good Use of Workflows

Review Source: Capterra

I stepped into the process mid stream and was able roll out the performance management program. It did take several hours of training with Performance Pro to understand the set up. The Performance Pro representative was very accommodating and key to the success of the roll out. I found that mid stream set up changes created down stream process complications that were not fully understood and explained. Year one went ok and we will implement process changes based on the roll out experience.

Pros
This software has workflow capability that can be used during the performance review process. It does make routing of performance reviews more efficient in that it sends emails to managers and employees during each stage of the process and makes the review available for edit and review at different stages. The software is very customizable. Implementation specialist was very attentive to our needs.

Cons
The set up of the software was extremely time consuming. Understanding what each of the custom fields does and how it impacts other processes is tough. There are several administrative manuals but I found that they were not updated with the newest software features. There are standard reports but they are not customizable and the software doesn't have the capability to adhoc reports.

This software is simple enough to learn and produces great reports that are easy to read and compare.

Pros
The reports are easy to read and compare to prior periods. I like to goal functions too. This really keeps each of us engaged in our own development as professionals.

Cons
Sometimes the streamline of preparing the review and performance competencies can be confusing. This could be a little easier to navigate. If you don't know what you are doing it is easy to not realize that you haven't properly submitted.

Performance Pro is great for managing annual reviews

Used occasionally for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-11-17
Review Source: Capterra

Overall experience with Performance Pro is a positive one. It is perfect for annual reviews between managers and employees to determine raises and bonuses. I have used it for the past 5 years and feel like it meets those needs.

Pros
Walking through the process of rating myself as employee was easy to do and allowed me to reflect on my status as an employee.

Cons
Even though I use this once a year, I always have to look around a little bit and try to remember where to start the evaluation process.

Human resources professionals have enough on their plates without worrying about manually tracking and managing the performance of employees at their organizations. Performance Pro is a flexible, automated solution designed to improve the lives of HR professionals and their staffs. The cloud-based application streamlines the way organizations generate performance appraisals and administer evaluations.

Utilizing a single-screen design, Performance Pro puts all the tools that managers need to track their employees’ performance in one place. Human resources staffers are able to view historical appraisals from applications and performance journals, and they can quickly generate employment action forms with just a few clicks. Performance Pro also provides users with the ability to store documents for third-party documentation in the cloud and compare employees side-by-side based on things like competency and skill level.


What is Performance Pro?

Developed in 1999, Performance Pro has become one of the longest-standing performance management applications on the market. The solution provides a way for HR professionals to evaluate the performance and competence of employees within their organizations.

Performance Pro is an all-in-one solution that includes the features HR departments need to administer detailed employee evaluations. Using Performance Pro, HR professionals are able to automate employee appraisals. The cloud-based application includes features that include everything from ongoing check-ins to standard appraisals. Although Performance Pro comes standard with pre-built templates for specific job titles, these templates can be modified by an administrator at any time. With the multiple appraiser module, HR professionals also have the ability to authorize up to 20 individuals to provide independent feedback or ratings of employees. These ratings can then be weighted and be used in 360-degree evaluations.


Who is Performance Pro For?

Performance Pro is a turnkey, scalable solution that can be used by organizations in virtually any industry. (The cloud-based platform includes content that is specific to a dozen different industries.) Although organizations of all sizes can benefit from using the features that Performance Pro provides, the solution is ideal for businesses with between 25 and 5,000 employees.

Within the businesses that have adopted Performance Pro, the platform is most frequently used by employees working in human resources departments. Performance Pro is currently used by more than 130,000 professionals worldwide.


Main Features

Competency Evaluations

Competency evaluations allow managers to measure and track their employees based on behaviorally-anchored rating scales. Depending on the platform view a manager selects, it is possible to see side-by-side comparisons of employee ratings, based on competencies.

Performance History

The past is not forgotten when HR departments utilize Performance Pro. The application includes historical appraisals from employees’ applications. This means that past appraisals can be reviewed at any point, and comparisons can quickly be made to determine whether an employee’s efforts have improved over time.

Content Customization

Performance Pro is completely customizable. Admins are able to customize appraisal templates to ensure the factors being evaluated are those that directly impact employees based on their job titles or positions within the company. Among the customizable aspects of the Performance Pro platform are ratings scales and review forms. More than 500 goals can be customized and cascaded throughout an organization.

Employment Action Forms

HR managers using Performance Pro are able to generate employment action forms. Using the form builder feature, authorized administrators can create forms for electronic use—including tracking, routine, e-signatures, and online storage—all from within the cloud-based application.

Multiple Appraiser Module

Administrators using Performance Pro can assign up to 20 managers, peers, subordinate, and other company staffers to provide independent feedback and ratings of employees. The results of these feedback evaluations are weighted and merged into a HR professionals’ independent assessment, which is used to create comprehensive employee appraisals.


Integrations

Performance Pro integrates with ADP, PlanSource, and BambooHR. These integrations are made possible through established data APIs. Additional data integrations can also be established with any vendor application used by a participating Performance Pro client.


Pricing

Performance Pro offers a pricing guarantee, which means the company will beat any quote from another performance management vendor by 10%. Performance Pro is priced on a per employee license basis, using a tiered schedule. An annual license is required for every employee whose data is stored within a company’s Performance Pro account. The larger the client, the lower the Performance Pro licensing fee.

The first-year license cost includes full implementation, unlimited updates and upgrades, unlimited product support, and all features, except the Multiple Appraiser module. The first-year license cost drops by approximately 63% in subsequent years for renewal. The only additional costs clients can expect to incur are for the Multiple Appraiser module, which costs $16 per license in the first year and $6 per license in renewal years, along with any training, which is optional.


Bottom Line

  • Side-by-side comparisons of employee ratings
  • Generate 360-degree employee evaluations
  • Scalable based on a client’s size
  • Priced on a per-employee license basis
  • Live, unlimited support via phone, email and chat during regular business hours
