PLD Mentoring Platform Overview

What is PLD Mentoring Platform?

PLD Mentoring Platform is web-based software that helps educational institutions, membership associations, public administrations, and corporations track and enhance skills, attitude, knowledge, and overall behaviour of mentees. It allows administrators to set up customisable branding and configure the platform according to specific business preferences and requirements.

Using PLD Mentoring Platform's matching algorithms, staff members can match and connect with suitable mentees based on their personal development requirements. It lets mentors access the built-in learning resources and planning tools to create mentoring roadmaps. The survey functionality allows team members to send custom user experience feedback. Supervisors can also use the administrative dashboard to gain visibility into the number of mentors and mentees and their relationship status.

PLD Mentoring Platform facilitates integration with external client systems and websites. The student mentoring program lets schools, colleges, and universities improve student retention and boost overall employability rates. It also allows businesses to set up mentoring programs for various purposes, such as career development, diversity awareness, succession, peer induction, and more.

Excellent, well featured and easy to use platform, great value...

I have been really pleased that I made the purchase. The company has been responsive in helping me to get the platform up and running and any queries or concerns were addressed quickly. I looked at a number of other platforms before making the decision to go ahead and felt that I was going to pay a lot of money for features that I just didn't need. It is well used and I find that people in the company engage with it independently due to its simplicity which means less support time or training from me. I could not run my mentoring programme without it and it is essential to me to keep it alive and going across all our offices in the UK.

Fantastic Platform and Fabulous Customer Service Every time

We can't thank PLD for the provision of this platform which has reduced my admin time by almost half allowing me to focus on developing my mentoring scheme and increasing engagement with my service users. The platform has also allowed us to increase our mentee and mentor numbers to a level which would have been unmanageable for me but which means our members have more mentors to choose from.

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] are a pleasure to work with and their customer service is second to none!

Quick and easy set up, great quality product, great service

The whole process from tender to launch took a lot less time than expected, with more time that could have been shaved off from our own side. The platform and its capabilities were laid out in an easy to follow induction process.

The support team and account manager have been responsive and amenable, as well as providing guidance and tips for our own promotions and launch.

I looked at a number of other platforms before making the decision to go ahead and felt that I was going to pay a lot of money for features that I just didn't need.

I could not run my mentoring programme without it and it is essential to me to keep it alive and going across all our offices in the UK.

Pros

The platform offers a good range of features that doesn't overload the user and makes training and deployment easy and intuitive. The platform was sold and deployed as a site licence rather than on a per-user cost basis which gave me the flexibility to purchase the platform and not have to worry about additional licence costs - which is really helpful when managing my budget especially as I was unsure of take-up in the first year. The deployment process was positive and the ability to customise and brand the platform was important to me. This was done smoothly with good communication with the account manager and technical team which made my life easy. I was able to customise almost all areas of the platform including the mentor matching algorithm to adapt it to our career path structure. I have been using the platform for 12 months and have had no issues of downtime at all so far. A useful set of in-built tools such as messaging, SMART goals, SWOT etc. with you can work on with the mentee. Staff really seem to have engaged with it with minimal support needed which was what I was looking for.

Cons

I would like to see a more featured admin backend that would allow me to amend certain aspects of the site myself such as the drop-down fields for the profiles or more customisable surveys. If I want to make any changes I can always put a call in, and they have always been implemented really quickly. It would just be nice to have some more independent control without having to contact the company. The is no specific phone app if that is important to you, but not sure it is needed personally...the site adapts and works well for me via a phone browser.

Pros

We had a seamless transition from a paper based matching system have increased our engagement with our members due to the ease of use of the platform. I love the dashboard where you can see at a glance what your numbers are like and how engagement is going and the reports and analysis function is super helpful

Cons

I can't say there is anything I like least. We have identified a few slight technical hitches along the way but these have always been resolved extremely quickly and to our satisfaction and similarly if there have been any additional requirements from us, these have always been actioned swiftly by PLD

Review Source: Capterra

Pros

Usability - the platform is not complicated to use

Cons

Would be great if there was an app version, maybe one that could also be used for chat/texting purposes and scheduling so we can log usage. At the moment it's mostly offline and there's no real way to check how much or how often members use the platform

Response from Perform Learn Develop

The platform does have both meeting scheduling and tracking and an admin function that tracks user visits over time. I will be in touch to provide more support on these areas. We have looked at an app version but the platform has been designed for use over a wide range of devices without the need for a separate app. We do monitor engagement at the key stages of the relationship to provide useful metrics to administrators. Although we provide messaging, our extensive experience suggests that the majority of users prefer to use messaging / chat systems that they are already familiar with such as email, sms, video-conferencing, WhatsApp etc. We will be in touch to book in a chat to see if there are some key metrics missing we can collect for you.

The support team and account manager have been responsive and amenable, as well as providing guidance and tips for our own promotions and launch.

Pros

- It is incredibly easy to use
- There is generic content you can use which saves a lot of time writing content.
- The team at PLD were extremely helpful throughout, from tender to launch
- The platform is intuitive, and works well, with a good amount of uptake at launch
- Pricing is inexpensive for the tool and service
- Overall it is clean, easy, a strong platform and with a good team behind it.

Cons

- Lack of administration tools meaning you have to contact PLD for certain changes
- Restricted page layouts

I suspect the team is working on having more flexibility to the platform.

From use by both members and staff through to support from PLD, the mentoring platform has been a been a success for FMLM. We are currently promoting and increasing the usage of the platform not just for our members but organisations we have close relationships with.

Pros

FMLM members find the PLD platform very easy to access and use. From signing up to developing a relationship, both mentees and mentors report the process is clear and helpful and a welcome assistance in their career journey.

The platform is a great benefit/resource in becoming a member of FMLM. From an administration viewpoint it provides an excellent reporting element for our management team, and very simple to control and monitor.

Cons

No 'Cons' to report. As our membership grows we are reassured the platform has the capability to hold many additional mentees/mentors.
