PayScale Insight Winter 2012 includes:

Raise Recommender—provides a set of easy to use tools to build a merit matrix and to allocate a pool of money easily across multiple departments in line with an organization’s business objectives

Spotlight—a new dashboard pane that points out specific compensation ‘hot spots’ in your company and your market. For example, using the PayScale database and your company information, it will mine and highlight potential problem areas such as the employees in your company who are paid above their current job salary range, or the employees who are compensated significantly below market salary ranges in your city. These insights will help managers and executives act to retain and incent the talent in their organizations.

New User Experience—this version of Insight includes a modernization of the user experience and navigation. Customer focus groups helped define and test the new experience that includes updated options for navigation and the introduction of new, streamlined dashboard panes.
