Can't speak highly enough about the product and the support received.

Cognology's onboarding solution has been a huge time saver for us.

Pros

The functionality of the onboarding and the overall ease of use when administering. Have also been very impressed with their openness to suggestions for improvement. The staff has loved the fact that they now can manage their employment processes online. Especially useful for as we have over 19 sites to manage employees across.

Cons

Not too much that I don't like and anything that we suggest is a problem is usually fixed. We were one of the first companies to use the onboarding and, of course, with any new product there were some minor issues to work through.

Very good from investigating our options to implementation all interaction with the team is positive

We now have a performance management process which is structured, details are documented and all managers and employees use the software and embrace the benefits. A paper-based process is no longer needed which eliminates hard copies of files and also makes record keeping much quicker.

Pros

The best thing is that everything is in one place, the details of performance conversations between the employee and their manager and these details are not lost if one of them leaves the business. Both parties have access to the folders to review at any time, leave feedback, revisit KPI's, and record professional development activities. Also having a system such as this implemented reduces the possibility of performance reviews not happening, the reminder emails and notifications within the program keeps everyone on track and aware of the progression of reviews etc. Managers are finding the platform great to record details of any performance management any conversations they have with their team, meaning if we have to move to more formal processes we have thorough records of previous meetings etc. Much less paperwork!

Cons

I cannot say there is anything that we have come across with the software that we don't like. At some times it appears to run slowly but we haven't felt the need to investigate this further as it has only been mentioned occasionally by some users.

We are in our first year of use and have at times found it challenging in respect of setting up.

Pros

Provided a central system in respect of reviews and allows us to be online as opposed to a paper base review system that we previously had.

Cons

Has not been as easy to navigate as we initially thought. In hindsight we would do things differently to get more out of the software.

Cognology Performance Management System

Being a cloud based system it is an excellent system for business with offices and staff in multiple locations. The system has allowed us to manage to interact with our employees to enhance feedback and manage their performance to ensure they continue to develop in their roles.

Pros

The system is very easy to use and can be easily adapted to the needs of our business. The team at Cognology have been very helpful and have worked with us to develop a system tailored to our needs. If the system has been unable to perform a function we have required, the team at Cognology have worked to offer other solutions and taken the feedback on to use in the development of their system moving forward.

Cons

It is still in development and some functionalities to be able to link talent management and succession planning still need to be worked on but the team has taken these requirements and are working on them.

Simplify your systems

Using Cognology's Onboarding software has streamlined our onboarding process and allowed us to gain better visibility of a new employee's progress in the process.

Pros

We have used Cognology's Onboarding software to create a tailored Onboarding Process allowing a streamlined process for each new employee coming into the business. It's great to have all the documents in one place then download, rather than having to email and then collect multiple documents from the new employee when they start. Having the ability to view the progress in the Onboarding process allows you the opportunity to reach out to the new employee to follow up and see if they require assistance.

Cons

There were some limitations with the creation of processes within the software, but we found a way to work around these.
