Cons: The upgrade to 6.0 provided some improvements, but seemed to be more difficult to execute the charts/reports we were accustomed to producing.

software to increase the productivity of your team

Reviewed a month ago

We used it as a test to try if an incentive strategy worked with our collaborators, however we decided to use other free software that offer us the same.

Pros

The best thing about this software is that it allows you to create your KPIs from the same database that can enhance decision-making in your business. It can even be filled in real time to be able to make adjustments with your team of the strategy they are carrying out. additionally they can also see their progress so it becomes challenging and inventive

Cons

Having a systems team that can do the filling work in real time can make your job easier. in case you cannot have this, the tool becomes little useful because the information. shown will not be found on live

Recommend ESM to those who are resourced contrained but need and will use a web-based software to better their organizational performance effort.

Pros

Easy to use, functionally represent the balanced scorecard methodology well. No learning required if you understand the BSC framework. Its affordable, scalable.

Cons

Lacks a robust initiatives prioritization; and initiatives resource allocation, comparison and refinement process.

Vendor response

Dear Al, Thanks for your review. We listened to your feedback and launched an initiative management module where you can capture criteria, weight the criteria, then rank your initiatives against each criteria, arriving at a weighted score. Initiatives can then be prioritized with resources allocated as appropriate. Thanks, ESM Team

Accessible Solution for Organizing Management by Objective

Reviewed 3 years ago

Typically I use ESM to keep strategy execution efforts organized particularly when there is more than one Balanced Scorecard being used within the organization.

Pros

ESM provides a easy-to-deploy software solution structured to support enterprise-wide Balanced Scorecard use (but could be used to support any management-by-objective framework). I like the fact that I can use the software to get a client supported with their strategy management journey quickly. (I also really appreciate that their pricing model is by scorecard and not by user, which supports organizations that understand the criticality of driving employee engagement with strategy.)

Cons

I wish the more complex reporting features rendered perfectly-formatted exported reports.
