G2 Crowd, the world’s leading business software review platform, today released the Winter 2016 Performance Management Software GridSM report to help businesses make the best technology decisions. UltiPro, Halogen TalentSpace and Workday were named Leaders in the report, receiving strong customer satisfaction scores with a large market presence. Additionally, Workboard and ActivTrak were named High Performers, earning strong customer satisfaction marks with a small market presence. Halogen TalentSpace earned the highest overall satisfaction score while SuccessFactors earned the highest overall Market Presence score.

The GridSM leverages customer satisfaction data reported by authenticated users along with vendor market presence determined from social and public data. Based on a combination of these scores, each software solution is categorized as a Leader, High Performer, Contender, or Niche.

Key Findings:

Key findings revealed that compensation and career planning functionalities were rated slightly lower than other key features at 77 percent, suggesting that these features have yet to be perfected by performance management vendors. Reviews and feedback received the highest product feature satisfaction rating at 82 percent.

Interestingly, most products on the GridSM provide performance management tools or modules as part of a HR suite, with only two products (Workboard and ActivTrak) focused primarily on performance management results.

Two performance management vendors shifted significantly since the Spring 2015 GridSM report. SuccessFactors moved from Leader to Contender as its satisfaction score decreased by 24 points and its market presence score decreased by three points. Additionally, Cornerstone OnDemand moved from High Performer to Contender as its satisfaction score decreased by 29 points while its market presence score increased by two points.
