Traditional performance review methods are deeply flawed. And if you recognize that, more power to you. However, before you blindly pick out performance management software on the basis of the fact that anything is better than traditional performance review methods, here are few things you need to think about.

There are many performance management software programs out there in the market today that you can choose from. Before you pick software, here are just 2 things you should be looking for.

Functionality – Always request demos of the software programs you are considering buying. Demos will give you a very good idea of how good or how the program is to navigate. You want to make sure that your software is easy to use and is not going to confuse your employees/colleagues. The hallmark of good software is that it’s easy to use and does not make you run around in circles.

Does It Work For You? – Don’t pick performance management software based on the fact that some other organization uses it or the fact that somebody else says its good. You need to pick software based on the fact that it has features that are useful for you. Another thing you might want to consider is if it can be easily integrated with other platforms. Most software applications offer free trials. Make use of that free trial to gauge if the application works for you or not.

You have a wide choice in front of you. It is up to you to make the right one. And if you keep these two things in mind, then you should definitely be able to pick performance management software that suits your needs.
