Great product for anything from complex to basic skills tracking needs

The people at Skills DB Pro are very clearly talented in both their technical skills and their interpersonal skills. Customer service has always been prompt and effective plus it comes with a unique personal touch that is rare for corporate relationships. They have been attentive to our needs, receptive to our thoughts, and it's evident that they want to see us succeed in using their application.

Pros

The out of the box features are dynamic and can be easily applied to a variety of use cases in any professional setting. Adding and updating data from the front-end of the application is intuitive and easy to do. There is a uniqueness to Skills DB Pro that aligns user-friendly simplicity with advanced analytics and tracking capabilities.

Cons

The only thing I can think to say is that the GUI itself could be "prettier". And even that is a personal preference that has very little impact on our users and the applications of the data.

My experience had been most satisfactory and I have certainly gotten my money's worth.

Increased productivity for my company and my employees. Great customer service and support from their developers!

Pros

I am most happy with this software's easy-to-use interface, affordable pricing and a variety of features covering the skills that a company has and the skills that it needs, also touching on a number of other important aspects such as training, talent search and reports.

Cons

Currently, I am fully satisfied with this software. The only place where I could personally see some improvements is in the interface: while it truly is easy to use, perhaps a stronger and more mesmerizing graphic element would make it even better!

SkillsDBPro

SkillsDBPro is a great tool for organizing your team's skillset. It greatly eases our staffing team's process of identifying qualified consultants for project roles, and is heavily depended upon in our daily operations.

Pros

The tool is extremely easy to use for the user. Updating skills and reviewing an analyst's skills is a seamless process, which is crucial when quickly identifying individual's for work opportunities.

Cons

I don't have any major complaints. If anything, I would say that the 'Find an Expert' search bar could be expanded to allow a variety of different variables rather than the text string it currently is.

Pros

I liked the quality and speed of the support we have gotten hen we have run into issues.

This solution allows upper level managers to learn what skills are available with in current personnel. In the past, we either contracted or hired personnel for skills sets that already existed within the organization.

Pros

Very easy to use. Employees had very little issues when using it for the first time.

Cons

There were no cons noted. Customer service was able to rectify any small issues

LTK Review

We are tracking the skills of our engineering staff, so this is the first time we are using this package. Hoping it provides the ability to find skilled staff when needed.

Pros

I am a new user and found it easy to maneuver with minimal direction from my manager.

Cons

Not completely intuitive, such as how to get started
