The top ten best alternatives to Qualtrics

An M&A means different things for different people. Consolidation is always helpful. Depending on how you look at it, yes and no. For some, a merger might mean access to a greater sleuth of resources, diversified portfolios, and reduced costs. In other cases, it could mean integration problems, higher expense ratio, and long lock-in period.

Top reasons to use an Employee review software

An employee review is one of the most important steps in an employee’s life-cycle. The employee review process is important for both, managers and directs. An employee’s
performance is evaluated by the manager, based on which suggestions are made to further
improve performance. This process also lets the manager know of any challenges,
shortcomings, and grievances if any. The whole process is a dialogue that helps them both
in performance and goal management. Many organizations follow the model of doing employee
reviews yearly. The process, while followed by many, has its disadvantages. Organizations are
going the route of continuous performance management (CPM), doing it more frequently. The
frequency can depend on the nature of the business, work, employee, etc., and can be set to monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, whichever suits best.

Employee review software is a tool that lets you achieve all of the above goals in a central location.
This can be a web-based portal that also works on mobile …

Feature Update! Improved SAML Based Single Sign On Now Available

There has been significant progress made by cloud computing services such as SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS since the early 2000s. With progress, there came an unusual burden on IT management. People using cloud computing have to manage multiple usernames and passwords which lead to them forgetting the credentials in many cases. It has been observed that 20% of customer care queries are related to forgotten credentials. Due to the numerous applications being produced every day, there is a significant loophole which needs to be addressed. The IT department often lacks access to information about which applications do most of the users prefer or the frequency of usage – which gives way to fraudulent activities such as phishing, hacking of databases etc. and mismanagement of the highest order.

For 21 years, Adobe Flash was the most significant tool for audio, video, animation and other graphics. But, in the past few years, it was constantly claimed that Flash was vulnerable to security issues which bring a significant amount of risk for computer users, has higher loading time, needs to be constantly updated, slows down websites and other similar drawbacks.
