Pros: It is customizable, expandable and scalable. We only scratched the surface of its capabilities. The ability to validate soft skills, to track skill development and present employers or career services staff with an accurate assessment of an employee's/student's skill set set is terrific. As a non-tech person I found it easy to navigate and the staff support that comes with the software is great.

Cons: No particular cons.

Overall: In my role as Dean of Student Services at DeVry University's Addison campus one of my most important responsibilities was preparing students for the world of work. It was important for us to provide practical career related work experiences for students and to assist them in documenting and validating their skills both technical and what are generally referred to as soft skills. We were also looking for a way for students to access resources to develop or enhance skills required by employers that were not a part of the academic program. We worked with SkillNet and university faculty to identify a group of students who we thought could be successful in the quickly growing independent contractor sector. DeVry has mostly tech students and most of the independent contractor positions are in technical areas. Skillnet developed for us a proprietary database/platform for our participating students. Through the platform they could access to a number of job boards and bid on local area opportunities. It quickly became apparent that students needed additional support and training so a number of workshops and training sessions were developed. Though the database students could talk to each other about their challenges and successes, arrange to work together and access information on where to get additional skills. Mike Kritzman and his team made adjustments daily as we refined the systems and learned more about our students needs in this new arena. They were a great team to work with, flexible, innovative and willing to try anything.

Comments: We are a call center and have used this software for our Customer Service team. I am so impressed with how customizable this software is! It can streamline your data, increase communication about performance, and bridge the skill gaps in your employee population. It was very easy to set up, and the customer service has been excellent. Skillnet offers other complementary products such as onboarding and engagement which integrate into one very impressive package.

Comments: This software is on the cutting edge for managing talent! We use it to track the skill levels of all project participants, primarily developers, and their annual education/certification requirements. We also use SkillNet to build project teams and for identifying the need to train across teams. It is an excellent tool for career development across the entire organization and the SkillNet team is impressively responsive.

Comments: I am eager and excited to share this platform and it's capabilities with my customers and colleagues. Everyone that I have shared it with so far shares my excitement. Measurement is critical to success. The software allows for an objective vs. subjective assessment that organically produces a development plan and then provides the feedback mechanisms for performance change to truly occur. Wow, Yes, it is an LMS. Yes, it is talent and performance management. But it is so much better than anything I have ever seen before. Oh, and incidentally, they are really nice people to work with as well. Give it a look. You'll be glad you did.
