Skills DB Pro Overview

What is Skills DB Pro?

Skills DB Pro is a competency-based talent management tool that helps organizations assess and leverage their employees’ greatest assets, skills and competencies. The solution helps to improve organizational capability by providing users with tools to track employee skills, perform skill audits, find qualified people, analyze training needs, create and track individual development plans, manage competencies, build custom reports, and more. With Skills DB Pro, organizations can better understand the skills their business has, as well as those they still need to develop.

Skills DB Pro allows users to track skills, competencies, qualifications, learnings, career paths, and individual development plans to evaluate the competency levels of current and new staff, match training resources, and speed up the growth of the workforce. Competency assessments allow organizations to review critical competency gaps across teams, and identify subject matter experts or mentors to assign the right people to the right projects.

Skills DB Pro’s automatic training recommendations help users create learning plans in order to prioritize critical areas of development at an individual, team or organizational level. Users can develop career paths and invest smartly in their workforce to improve learning and boost retention. Skills DB Pro’s analytics provide users with intelligent insights to help optimize their workforce, projects, succession planning, and training needs. Intuitive drag and drop reports as well as OLAP data analytics help to quickly and accurately identify areas of strength and skill gaps.

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.

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.

I agree that parts of our GUI was not as good as it could have been. Thus, in June 2020 we launched the Skills DB Pro Makeover Edition. Over 1000 of you told us what you wanted. We Listened!

We have completely redesigned the employee and manager interface, it is now better than a truck load of free pizzas.

-New Employee and Manager Guided Wizards.
-The wizards create a user workflow that is super easy to use.
-Employees now have a single skills entry screen.
-Manager dashboards have been expanded for analytics into each team member's proficiency.
-Administrators can now set up default entry screen items to customize the employee experience.

As always please let us know how we can improve.

Thanks,
Steve

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!
