There are other appraisal systems in the market, however not all can bring as many tangible business benefits as Actus™. We understand that as well as having a solution aligned with your needs, you also have to justify any financial investment (however reasonable) and we are here to help you outline the business case.

There are many benefits of appraisal systems when you move online, we’ve broken it down into four sections of 1. Productivity 2. Value 3. Governance and 4. Engagement
As outlined above there are many ways in which appraisal systems can deliver value to your business or organisation (assuming you choose one that is well designed like Actus™ of course!). All performance appraisal systems should increase individual and overall performance through greater clarity and alignment of personal objectives against business goals. However, Actus™ takes this a step further as it ensures that the objectives are visible and accessible all year round and encourages regular review through the milestones and comment functionality.
Actus™ empowers both managers and individuals
Most performance appraisal systems can help increase productivity by streamlining paper based processes and providing faster reporting. However, again Actus™ stands out from other providers as it has an open design which gives greater visibility and empowers managers and individuals to take control of the annual appraisal process, reducing the workload for HR and increasing accountability and buy-in from the end users.
Increases employee engagement with meaningful year round performance conversations
Unlike other performance appraisal systems, Actus™ has been designed to encourage meaningful year round performance conversations which increases employee engagement (which is a business benefit in its own right). In fact many of our clients have introduced Actus™ as the foundation of their employee engagement or organisational development strategy, why not have an informal discussion with a member of our team to find out how (T) 01582 793053.
Increases compliance and reduces risk
Actus™ reaches the parts that other performance appraisal systems don’t as it has also been designed to increase compliance and reduce risk through better documentation of all performance management processes through the 1 to 1, performance improvement appraisal and recording of key qualifications. This allows organisations to demonstrate adherence to process and provides increased compliance.
Actus™ partners with you
Although many of these benefits result from our intelligent design and key features which act as a catalyst for culture change, we know that performance appraisal systems alone can’t deliver these benefits. This is why we partner with you, helping you to implement the system successfully and guide you through the cultural transition. This is where the real organisational benefits arise.
We ensure that our appraisal system is the right fit for your organisation. An online demo allows us to chat through your requirements and make sure that we can deliver the features that are important to you, it’s quick, free and there’s no obligation to buy.
One of our key reasons you should consider us as your partner of choice is not only that we will work with you to align Actus™ with your organisation, but also because we can provide advice and guidance on any element of performance management. We also offer a complete portfolio of training services from systems training to leadership development and by aligning that training with your performance appraisal system you not only embed a highly engaged, qualified workforce but also realise your return on investment much sooner.
