Pros: From a user standpoint, the tool is very easy to use - just like a spreadsheet. As the administrator, it meets most of our requirements.

Cons: In V3, as the administrator, I feel like I had to go to Curo to make many of the changes, corrections or updates. While they were prompt in doing so, it would be easier if I could do certain things myself.

Overall: We use it for our annual merit reviews. It accommodates most of our expectations - easy to use, multiple countries. And then it provides the letters we need to communicate to our staff.

Hi, Thank you for your review.

We are happy to see that the Curo tool is meeting your needs for your Merit reviews.

One of the advantages of the V4 platform over V3 is the easier configuration settings and back end usability. We can certainly look at showing you have to do some of the changes within the V4 platform when you move across this year.

Pros: This provides a clear method to collate, accurately record and manage compensation decisions across our business in a simple and effective way, allowing our compensation experts to focus on just that rather than being wholly wrapped up in processes (albeit valuable proceses but not value add). Curo are a very friendly team and are easy to work with, offering a fast growing and developing software solution.

Cons: You will probably find that you need to improve your own processes and your own data before being able to utilise the full functionality - we did and still are!

Recommendations to other buyers: This applies equally as an overall comment and not necessarily specific to this vendor - be prepared to challenge your existing approaches and processes, the product is easily adaptable enough but use their expertise and knowledge to help improve your "as is" position.

Pros: Easy to use and set up. The constant save feature has helped a lot of our managers who have had some poor internet connections avoid losing their work. It's highly configurable, and easy for admins to get around normal issues that occur when conducting remuneration reviews e.g. more people being added/moved/changed last minute, managers going on leave unexpectedly etc, all while having a really robust audit system.

Cons: The system was mainly really intuitive, the only slight drawback being that the filtering system is slightly clunky to use for first time users. However, you can see the logic in setting things up that way, and it's still very easy to learn so it's not too much of an issue - it's overall extremely easy software to use.

Overall: Curo has helped us to put our remuneration review process into the cloud. It has helped us to cut out the multiple versions of excel review sheets going back and forth, and has provided a clear and easy to follow audit trail as to what is happening, and what has happened in previous review. It also makes it very easy to manage the process and see which managers are still to complete their reviews, so we can follow up with the relevant delinquent reviewers efficiently.

Pros: There were many things to like about the service and product offered, but to list a few: 1) CuroComp is a simple tool that does exactly what it is supposed to do and it does it very well. There is no superfluous functionality. 2) Having come from a position where the annual pay-review was a very manual, labour intensive process, Curo enabled us to make the transition from spreadsheets to online system easily and quickly (engagement to roll-out was 4 months). Feedback across the organisation has been very positive - including at our Executive Committee level. 3) The team are fantastic. They were always on hand to answer questions and solve any problems.

Cons: Whilst the system is in its infancy, there is still room for improvements, but the team are pro-actively seeking to improve the software by asking for client feedback so that future iterations will meet their needs.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use CuroComp to transform your year-end pay-review process if in-house capability is holding you back. By introducing the CuroComp system, the HR function can perform 'value-add' tasks like reporting/ analysing the data as it will all be at their fingertips.

Pros: From a reward professional's perspective the product is very customisable, has excellent reporting functionality and fully meets our needs. From an end user perspective it is also easy to use and we have received very good feedback from managers across the business. The support we receive from the vendor is first class - they are very responsive, flexible and really understand our business and our requirements.

Cons: Like any product of this nature there are some limitations but these are generally very small and have no impact on the efficiency and effectiveness of our year-end cycle.

Recommendations to other buyers: Invest the time to fully establish your requirements and work with the vendor to develop the site to meet these. A partnership approach yields good results!

Pros: The simply system functionality with intuitive features and the customer service attitude of the CuroComp team. The customer service is outstanding. The configuration stage was led by a subject matter expert who knew the system and the compensation function. We often would ask her opinion of what is a best practice and she delivered the advice on target. The customer support person was very responsive and delivered on requests with amazing speed and professionalism. The overall process met our objective by facilitating an organized and effective annual compensation process. Both HR and operations were pleased with the system and process.

Cons: No dislikes the service and product fully met expectations.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use the CuroComp professionals for advice on your process. Make sure you provide clean data. Test the data thoroughly. Use someone outside of HR for feedback on the system and process.

Pros: -One of the more progressive tools we reviewed

-Intuitive UI and easy for managers to navigate with little / no instruction or guidance

-Managers liked the ability to drill down within the teams to see what allocations are being made

-Easy for administrators to navigate and review the organization

-Implementation team was fantastic to work with and were able to translate all of our needs into the end product

-Flexibility of the tool to add / distribute funding, move budgets / employees, etc. proved to be very easy to do within the tool

-The team delivered on what was promised

Cons: No cons thus far with the tool - overall, we have been happy with the end result.

Overall: We were looking for a robust solution that would take us away from using excel for our annual bonus, equity and compensation cycles. With this solution, we found it. Feedback from our management team has been overwhelmingly positive in a tool that was intuitive, easy to use, but also gave management added visibility which many of them were craving. The overall implementation was smooth and thought out. We had a very tight timeline to execute in, but the team accommodated and we were able to launch the tool within our given time frame with no issues.

Pros: There are many things that have impressed us about Curo - here are the top three: - The system itself - it is extremely flexible, simple to use and user-friendly. - The implementation process - we were guided by Curo throughout the project and they did a fantastic job making it as stress-free as possible - The service - customer service at its finest! Every question we asked had a positive response, nothing was too much trouble and even when things changed after the system was built it was never an issue to make amendments. The team at Curo are approachable, friendly and extremely knowledgeable, not only about the system but also about running compensation/remuneration reviews in practice.

Cons: There is nothing specific that we disliked about the product or vendor, in fact we were impressed by how flexible the system was and the team at Curo were always willing to implement our suggestions for improvement where ever practicable.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure that you are clear about your process/requirements and ensure that you do extensive testing prior to implementation. Be open / flexible and use the knowledge and expertise of the Curo team.

Pros: Their team worked diligently with us on an aggressive go live date. Their staff were very helpful as we worked through issues and found resolutions through UAT instances. It's important that clients thoroughly test their data.

Cons: Managers are missing the ability to indicate when they have reviewed certain recommendations. For Sr level management which everything rolls up to, it makes it difficult to pick up where they left off in the process. Something to think about.

Overall: Experience with staff and platform was positive.

Pros: If managers are used to excel, the learning curve in transitioning to Curo is minimal. It's intuitive and straightforward to the end user.

Cons: Our setup scenarios can be complex and thus requires a lot of dependence on the Curo staff. Hopefully in the future we will be more indepedent.

In regards to your second point, this is definitely something we can look at during your next review. A wider range of training options is on its way for clients that wish to have more control with their systems.

Comments: I purchased Curo with the following vision: To be able to design my own annual rewards business rules, custom fields, reports, etc. but have a firm do the coding for me rather than developing it in-house. It is a great product for this and we were quite satisfied overall. While we are US-based and our implementation lead was in the UK, she was so responsive and helpful that we were able to launch on time and troubleshoot successfully along the way.

Pros: Super flexible - it's like a giant pivot table. Design your own system. It's also a fantastic value for the money.

Cons: V3 didn't have an open API and needed some UI improvements. Those appear to be enhanced in V4 which is now available.

Comments: Curo Compensation is an affordable user-friendly compensation planning tool. What is helpful about Curo Compensation is that they understand the challenges of compensation planning, they approach merit work from a Compensation Expert's perspective and therefore can successfully make needed customization to ensure an efficient process that feels seamless to leaders. Curo provides quality customer service and their main Project Leader is very knowledgeable. Ironically the one thing we thought would be most challenging, the team being UK based while our organization is in the US actually became a real benefit. Each night we could send them work which would correct and uploaded in the system by the time we arrived in the morning.

Comments: We are extremely pleased with our choice of Curo for our compensation administration system. Curo's flexibility and user-friendly interface have helped us streamline the painful administrative processes surrounding our multiple complex compensation cycles. The system has enabled better collaboration across our firm and has tremendously reduced the time and effort we previously spent on spreadsheets and manual procedures. Curo's support team worked closely with us throughout the implementation process; they have been phenomenal partners. Our management team couldn't be happier.

We implemented Curo for our UK operations in 2012 and haven't looked back since!

Pros: This is the best compensation system that I have used. It's user friendly and easy to use. I have not heard any complaints from the users (budget managers) and that's a good sign.

Cons: I can't think of any at this moment since the system does what I expected and more.

Overall: We previously used a compensation system that is cumbersome and not user friendly. I spent a lot of my time assisting budget managers to understand their team's compensation and how to maneuver in the system. Now that we are using Curo, these problems are solved. I love a system when everything is right on your fingertips. And Curo provides this to my company.

Comments: My organisation introduced Curo in 2015, initially to automate our pay review process. The system proved to be flexible, intuitive and well suited to our needs. As a result we have subsequently used the system for incentive management and will be extending its use to a recently acquired business for the 2016 review cycle. Overall, our experience has been very positive which is supported by feedback from leaders that used the system from across the business who cited it as a considerable improvement on the previous, spreadsheet-driven process.

Pros: A flexible and intuitive tool that was really well received by users across the business.

Cons: There are things we would do differently in the way we implemented the review but these were largely internal issues and feedback on the system was generally very good.

Recommendations to other buyers: Getting the most from this kind of software means having a team that understand reward management and how a salary review or bonus process works in practice. Having a good team that can help ensure the system is as intuitive as possible really helps to add value.
