Nine Questions to Ask 360-system Vendors


Many organizations are searching for automated solutions to support their 360 initiatives. Fortunately, selecting vendors is a lot like making a new hire. You start by interviewing the most likely candidates from a pool of prospects. You drop the least promising to create a shortlist. Finally—by asking the right questions—you pick the best choice for your organization.

survey questionnaire  Some vendors push their survey software by saying, This does everything you need for 360 for a lower price! If you accept this claim, you may be in store for some mind-numbing chores. For instance, to support 360 for 200 employees could mean publishing 200 separate surveys instead of creating one project for 200 people, as you can with systems created especially for 360. The days you spend working around limitations like that can drive your TCO much higher. 5. Do you have a library of pre-packaged Read More
