It's intuitive, a very usable tool and it's easy to find the data you're looking for.The platform itself is very robust and I generally like the reporting and analytics capability.The user interface is good and very easy to use.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.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.

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 »

It's possible that the way things are integrated could be improvedThe UI, UX (user experience) is very bad. It is not very interactive.The security console should be made less complex.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.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.Setting up reports can be a bit tricky.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.There is a lot of complexity in the configuration of this solution.
