Forever Fan

Reviewed a year ago

From the initial inquiry to the implementation and ongoing use, the platform and the people have been fantastic. The interface is user friendly; however, if help is needed there is a robust help center, and customer support is never far away. There is a logical flow between all aspects of the platform so understanding how data in one area influences data in other areas makes sense. I also love the fact that SkillsDB complements learning paths and professional development plans, which is key for performance coaching.

Pros

When I first learned about SkillsDB, I was at a previous employer. I was charged with finding a tool that could (1) streamline our skills management process; (2) simplify self-assessments; and (3) help leaders find specific skills for resourcing projects. SkillsDB can do that and provide so much more! My favorite feature is the Job Roles feature, which demystifies performance expectations for current roles and naturally establishes career paths that employees can aspire to achieve.

Cons

For my previous employer and the client I'm working with now, the skills library doesn't contain as many out-of-the-box skills we can use. Each environment is highly specific with the skills that are tracked and how they are tracked, so we had to customize everywhere. This is one of those things where a weakness is a strength because the convenience of customization meant we could structure the skills and competencies to meet our unique business needs. That leads to ease of usability and faster adoption.

Good service to meet our needs

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, SkillsDB met our need and provided the insight we need into our employee skills and growth opportunities.

Pros

We needed a system that would allow us to easily track employee skills and qualifications- one that was accessible by our employees for self-disclosure, as well as one that our BD and Proposal team could utilize effectively. SkillsDB met this need- providing an easy to use, self-managed resource. Customer Support and set-up assistance were awesome. SkillsDB has met a need we have long had and is being used effectively across the company.

Cons

Cleaner searches-- results are sometimes difficult to find

Great product for anything from complex to basic skills tracking needs

Reviewed 5 years ago

The people at Skills DB Pro are very clearly talented in both their technical skills and their interpersonal skills. Customer service has always been prompt and effective plus it comes with a unique personal touch that is rare for corporate relationships. They have been attentive to our needs, receptive to our thoughts, and it's evident that they want to see us succeed in using their application.

Pros

The out of the box features are dynamic and can be easily applied to a variety of use cases in any professional setting. Adding and updating data from the front-end of the application is intuitive and easy to do. There is a uniqueness to Skills DB Pro that aligns user-friendly simplicity with advanced analytics and tracking capabilities.

Cons

The only thing I can think to say is that the GUI itself could be "prettier". And even that is a personal preference that has very little impact on our users and the applications of the data.

Vendor response

Thanks Sahara, Always a joy to work with you. I agree that parts of our GUI was not as good as it could have been. Thus, in June 2020 we launched the Skills DB Pro Makeover Edition. Over 1000 of you told us what you wanted. We Listened! We have completely redesigned the employee and manager interface, it is now better than a truck load of free pizzas. -New Employee and Manager Guided Wizards. -The wizards create a user workflow that is super easy to use. -Employees now have a single skills entry screen. -Manager dashboards have been expanded for analytics into each team member's proficiency. -Administrators can now set up default entry screen items to customize the employee experience. As always please let us know how we can improve. Thanks, Steve
