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.

Response from Skills DB Pro

Thanks Sahara,
Always a joy to work with you.
Looking forward to seeing the unique use cases you have come up with soon.

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 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.
