We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"System usability has improved to a large extent and our manual effort has been reduced."

More SumTotal Systems Talent Portal Pros »

"We have fewer systems, less manual data entry, and less processing.""Performance and good usability are the two most valuable features of this solution.""The solution is extremely stable.""It's actually a cloud-native solution and based on the community for development. It is a very good open architecture and able to interconnect with other systems. And it is very stable and very fast in terms of response.""This product is leaps and bounds above the competition. Part of the reason is that it is built with modern technology. It has no legacy coding in it at all.""The user interface is good and very easy to use.""The platform itself is very robust and I generally like the reporting and analytics capability.""It's intuitive, a very usable tool and it's easy to find the data you're looking for."

Cons
"Analytics is one area where this system really needs a large improvement because currently, it has only basic reporting features."

More SumTotal Systems Talent Portal Cons »

"There is a lot of complexity in the configuration of this solution.""It has missing functionalities. Specific countries, like Germany, didn't have the option to do payroll. Now we need to look for another product for HR.""Setting up reports can be a bit tricky.""Reporting systems should be improved. If you want to report it on paper, if you want something more BI oriented, more high level predictive or more data-driven, it should be improved.""It is good that much of the development is based on community input but often that can lead to details being ignored and small, nagging issues are ignored.""The security console should be made less complex.""The UI, UX (user experience) is very bad. It is not very interactive.""It's possible that the way things are integrated could be improved"

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Licensing is quite flexible, but please ensure that you have the right team negotiating with them."

More SumTotal Systems Talent Portal Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Workday is an expensive solution.""You have the license fee per module, and then you have a kind of annual training fee, which is a kind of add-on. I wouldn't say it is exhaustive; it is minor. Licensing is pretty transparent for most of the part.""The pricing is good from an HR perspective, although management gets upset after spending $500,000 a year, every year.""Its price is pretty high. It is more expensive than what is offered by other competitors in the market."
