Pros: Data readily available when entered. Multi-user capability

Cons: 1) Not Intuitive - By default, users wind up entering data by individual player, which is not the strength of this application. The default wireframe should lead users to the group data entry mode, where a group of players ("Criteria") are rated on a specific skill.

2) Terms - Recommend polling ordinary users on the terminology used by the app. The current terms do not connect with ordinary users

3) Rating Scale - The directors of my club say not to use the rating of "0" because the app fouls up calculation of averages. This doesn't make much sense in this day and age that when can not use a valid rating of zero and make standard calcuations. You can follow up with Joe Felipe or Joel Standford at Downstate Volleyball VBC.

Overall: This definitely saves on the data entry aspects. However, everyone must have a responsive device to use the app.

Vendor Response

by TeamGenius Systems on October 08, 2018

Thank you for your thoughtful feedback, Dennis. We have some major updates planned for our mobile app that will be rolling out over the next few months. These should help with the default views and terminology preferences you mentioned. We understand that for some organizations and criteria, a score of zero means something and it is on our road map to make this change so that zero can be entered as a valid score. Also note that our native app works on any iOS or Android device. Thank you again for sharing your feedback. Our team discusses every suggestion and we are constantly making changes in response to feedback like yours.

Pros: This is a great app for evaluation software. We use it for a large minor hockey organization that is over 1000 players, and the ease of use, of the software is second to none. Scores are entered and visible in real time, and as soon as the evaluation is complete we can export, and view the scores via multiple file formats. It makes for super quick turnaround.

Cons: The software does take some getting use to, and if you have another association that has already used the software it might be easier to have them help you with setup. We went through multiple test evaluations before we got it down, but once we did, we just cloned it for other divisions.

Overall: Love it! Makes our evaluation process so much easier. Plus the support we received from the team was amazing. 30mins or less was the typical response time to a support question, and most times tit was under 20mins.

Pros: The ease and convenience of the platform. Quick response times from my rep and all customer service folks at Team Genius. In the end the platform has allowed us to quickly aggregate our scoring and make the process more transparent for all involved.

Cons: Really I have no complaints at all. There was one small change to the layout of one report but after voicing my concerns about the change I believe that Team Genius is working on new solutions.

Overall: We decided to go with Team Genius to make our try-outs more uniform and efficient and to create a platform that would increase the number of end of season evaluations we would receive from our coaches. In two seasons we have found that we now make hard decisions at tryouts with more real data. Team selection will always be part art and part science but Team Genius gives us a real time look at results and allows us to make tough choices based off of real time data. On the end of season eval side our participation has sky rocketed from less than 50% to close to 90%!

Pros: The customer support and onboarding were excellent. The team worked with me to help configure the product to the specific needs of my tryouts. My coaches loved being able to enter the information on the phone, and the head coach loved being able to see the evaluations in real time.

Another great feature was that it was easy to see who had NOT yet been evaluated, to make sure that everyone got a fair look.

Cons: The software was great, but it wasn't cheap. Still, we feel that it is well worth the money. I used to have to take a day off work to compile tryout results, now I don't.

Overall: This is a great system. EVERY one of my coaches said that they preferred it to the paper system that we'd used in the past (ages 18 to 60) and said that it was worth the money to buy again this season.

Pros: The most important feature of the software for our use is the ease and quickness at which the reports and overall rankings can be generate. For post tryout evaluation use, the ability to collate evaluator comments into professional looking handouts is a great bonus feature

Cons: Honestly don't have anything that we dislike or that does not work for our organization. This was a our second fall utilizing Team Genius and don't see us not using the software again next season.

Overall: the real time scoring and efficiency of the process for us using Team Genius makes our organizing look and feel more professional to our membership.

Pros: The customer support was excellent. They listened to our needs and did things that helped our club. The efficiency for our tryouts now is amazing. We have our numbers quicker and are able to take care of team placement a lot easier.

Cons: We had to modify how we scored our tryouts as the software handled it different. It wasn't that big of a change though.

Overall: Great experience. All the staff have been great to work with. This software has really saved us time and made us more organized and efficient.

Pros: It was very user friendly for both the evaluators and the organizers. Easy to input players, manage groups and check in players. Very easy for the evaluators to get use to and they liked the interface on the iPad app. Very easy and quick to add a walkup player or to change a jersey.

Cons: Would like to be able to sort by ranking in the iPad app when looking at the individual criteria.

Overall: Using the TeamGenius system for our evaluations this year saved a ton of hours and we were instantly able to see the results and make decisions.

Great product.

Cons: Maybe being able to get admin access through the app on my phone would've been nice. But this is just nitpicking.

Overall: From training to online support to a great product, our experience has been amazing.

Pros: The potential for tracking multiple aspects of player and team performance is great. The design at front end of creating Evals allows for a wide range criteria and areas of measuring.

Cons: It was a bit confusing how to get started and set up even a very basic eval template. Plus downloading or sharing completed data was a bit cumbersome at first, but in the end worked

Overall: For our youth soccer club it has so far been useful and potentially it's long range value as we track players and teams over several seasons can really helps see trends and act accordingly. We have been happy overall so far!

Pros: Eliminates the manual data entry for evaluations and allows the coordinators to sort and filter scores in real time. No delay between finishing a session and then having to enter in data and sort spreadsheets.

Cons: Depending on how detailed your tryout/evaluation process is, the time it takes to build your groups can be cumbersome, but the hours saved over the course of your evaluation period outweighs this bit of data entry for participants.

Overall: Great experience so far. Team Genius will be part of our evaluation process for many more years.

Pros: We were able to replicate our tryout scoring 100% with team genius. This took long nights away calculating scores out. Now we can turn around results in minutes and not hours or even days. Takes away the human factor of calculating errors also.

Cons: When scoring offline it takes a bit to get scores updated

Pros: Streamlining registrations directly via TeamGenius to then make assessments on the players during tryouts. It highly upgraded the way in which we run our tryouts!

Cons: The least was probably the need to import data several times as people continued registering throughout the day and hours before tryouts.

Pros: Ease of use for evaluation and evlauators.

Cons: Being able to move around players on a basis of evaluation. Once the player has done one evaluation we need to move them to another group to evaluate them in a different pool the same scores appear for that specific player. It maybe user error on my part, but that's the one hiccup that we have.

Overall: Awesome customer service!! I mean rep and his team of technical people and the reps are great. So good!
