New customer ESM 5.5 review

Review Source: Capterra

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.

Response from ESM Software Group


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

Used occasionally for 2+ years
Reviewed 2018-08-10
Review Source: Capterra

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.

The Executive Strategy Manager tool afforded us an opportunity to design our BSC and align all stakeholders. It truly redefined the meaning of collaboration. For us, the ESM advanced presentation capabilities allowed us to rapidly respond to executive requests for updates and information. Also, the ESM account managers provided extraordinary service support, generously sharing their time and expertise.

Leveraging ESM + Strategy for SMS Development

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2018-08-10
Review Source: Capterra

The value proposition of the tool consists of three things: 1. Transparency - Provides a holistic view of SMS work from which all stakeholders can glean insight and make decisions from. 2. Accountability - Instills discipline around the ownership and reporting of strategic objectives and initiatives. 3. Root-cause analysis - Gives leaders a lens into what forces drive the status of strategic objectives and corresponding metrics.

Pros
1. Excellent support during setup and responsiveness regarding inquiries 2. Flexible enough to accommodate the nuances of our SMS. 3. Ease of navigation and intuitive layout makes software easy to learn.

Cons
1. The Gantt chart view is not currently exportable, but I am aware that this is a function they are exploring.
