Top Rated Talent Management Software for Enterprises

Our updated analysis of an evolving market is based on real user reviews and will help buyers make informed product purchase decisions based on the experiences of others like them

TrustRadius™, the most trusted peer research and customer voice platform, announced today the publication of its 2016 Buyer’s Guide to Core HR Software and its 2016 Buyer’s Guide to Talent Management Software. Included in each guide are TrustRadius TrustMaps™ which rank products based on end-user satisfaction ratings and research frequency by prospective buyers among small and mid-size companies, as well as enterprises.

TrustMaps™ help HR software buyers quickly locate solutions most highly rated and adopted by their peers and therefore most closely aligned to their needs. Each TrustMap™ plots Core HR software and Talent Management suites on two dimensions that include overall trScore™ based on satisfaction ratings from end-users, and research frequency by prospective buyers on TrustRadius as measured by unique page views.

Each guide also includes a discussion of other factors to consider and and how to weight them in context of your use case, drawn from interviews with highly regarded independent experts, including Steve Boese (HR Technology Conference Co-Chair), George LaRocque (Analyst & Founder, #HRWins), Matt Charney (Executive Editor, Recruiting Daily), Suzanne Lucas (Evil HR Lady), and Laurie Ruettimann (Founder, LFR LLC).

Each guide also includes a discussion of key 2016 market dynamics and trends in the Core HR and Talent Management software markets. They also include detailed profiles of 21 HR Software products, including customer demographics and pros & cons as cited in over 1,500 authenticated end-user reviews and ratings.

“Across the market there is a shift towards a more integrated HR and talent stack, in an effort to manage the employee lifecycle more smoothly and use data more strategically. Some vendors are offering end-to-end HCM suites, while others are focused on opening up their APIs and creating pre-built connectors to other products. This makes the HR technology ecosystem better for buyers, but also much more complex," said Emily Sue Tomac, TrustRadius Research Analyst and author of the guides. "Our updated analysis of an evolving market is based on real user reviews and will help buyers make informed product purchase decisions based on the experiences of others like them."

George LaRocque, a leading HR Tech Analyst, Founder of #HRWins, agreed stating, “One of the biggest frustrations historically for HR users has been that platforms don’t talk to each other. Technology has finally caught up to where newer products take a more open approach to getting data in and out. That’s something that puts the power in the buyer’s hands. So the customers have really won, not the point solutions or the platforms.”
