Pros
PLD customers service is brilliant the team are so helpful, couldn't recommend them enough.
The PLD Mentoring Platform has been an excellent addition to our member benefits. Offering our members the chance to learn from the peers and make connections with other members globally.
Everyone have been so supportive and responsive to our needs. Great customer service and very efficient launch and continuous alterations as and when needed.
Cons
We had multiple data sources and there was risk of error in data reporting.
Lack of buy in, but that is not anything to do with PLD.
Sometimes difficult to navigate for new users who do not have experience of using a matching platform or don't know how it works.

NHS review!

Reviewed 7 days ago

Easy to use, perfect for what we needed and our NHS staff love it

Pros

I like how easy and user friendly it is. You could give the log in to someone and they could figure out the site themselves without any help. Its clear and looks good without it being too clunky. Its perfect for a self service system.

Cons

I think the reporting aspect could be updated slightly but PLD are so good with updates that Im sure they're on it already.

Happy Customers

Reviewed a year ago

Our overall experience has been easy. Initial introduction and training meetings were quickly set up. Following by the creation of our bespoke platform. The PLD team have been accommodating and efficient.

Pros

Very straight forward software, no fuss or frills needed. Provides a very simple but effective mentoring process.

Cons

I haven't come across any features that need improving. We are due to email our members a similar survey, so we may have some more feedback following this.

CII Review

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Usability - the platform is not complicated to use

Cons

Would be great if there was an app version, maybe one that could also be used for chat/texting purposes and scheduling so we can log usage. At the moment it's mostly offline and there's no real way to check how much or how often members use the platform

Vendor response

The platform does have both meeting scheduling and tracking and an admin function that tracks user visits over time. I will be in touch to provide more support on these areas. We have looked at an app version but the platform has been designed for use over a wide range of devices without the need for a separate app. We do monitor engagement at the key stages of the relationship to provide useful metrics to administrators. Although we provide messaging, our extensive experience suggests that the majority of users prefer to use messaging / chat systems that they are already familiar with such as email, sms, video-conferencing, WhatsApp etc. We will be in touch to book in a chat to see if there are some key metrics missing we can collect for you.

Great features and support

Reviewed 4 months ago

The platform has allowed s to rapidly deploy a fantastic mentoring programme. PLD have supported us at every step and also in terms of further tweaking the system as we gain more experience of how the mentoring process can be managed.

Pros

UK based company. Ease of contact. Ability to flex and customise to our needs. Competitive pricing. UK based support. Experience with other similar organisations. Content, documentation and resources provided helped speed up deployment and took a lot of burden off us to produce. The people at PLD truly know the market and understand the mentoring process and industry. This experience is invaluable when you are new to this area.

Cons

Didn't seem as 'slick' as some of the others we looked at, but this is more than outweighed that its functionality and ease of use.

PLD Software

Reviewed 8 months ago

We wanted to implement PLD software to help us grow our mentoring programme. It became obvious that we could not sustain a version which was dependent on spreadsheets, google docs etc. We had multiple data sources and there was risk of error in data reporting. Using the PLD Mentoring platform has allowed us to streamline our programme and we plan as we grow to use the reporting tools to allow us report on impact and our growth to our funders and other stakeholders. By adopting the platform we have removed the day to day manual data administration that was very time consuming. It has allowed us to free up resources and concentrate on other areas.

Pros

We found the software very practical. I was obvious that PLD had expertise in this area. The guides and very useful. We operate in Ireland and it was very useful that we could localise some of the language and terminology that would make sense to our users. We work with young people in education or wishing to get into education and match them with a mentor. The software was very intuitive and easy to use. We have had no feedback/queries from our mentees and mentors that use the platform to facilitate their mentoring.

Cons

The integration process was really made easy with the support of the PLD team and Helen. We are not IT experts so to get their advise and feedback was invaluable. There were no features difficult to use or implement.
