Qualtrics Extends Reach Into HR Market with Launch of Qualtrics 360

onlinemrnewsPROVO, Utah (October 2, 2013) ­ Qualtrics, the world’s leading enterprise survey technology provider, today announced the launch of Qualtrics 360, a 360-degree employee development solution. Qualtrics 360 empowers organizations to easily gather valuable employee insights to help build a more competitive workforce. Expanding its reach into employee insight collection is a logical next step for Qualtrics, which has experienced tremendous growth in the market research and customer insight markets.

Automated Employee Insights

With more than 5,000 enterprises and academic institutions worldwide ­ including half of the Fortune 100 ­ Qualtrics has demonstrated a history of success in delivering simple, yet sophisticated, technology that enables organizations conduct market research and capture market and customer insights. Qualtrics is leveraging its enterprise survey platform to make the complicated and time-consuming 360-degree assessment process faster and easier. Now, with Qualtrics 360, HR professionals can easily configure the employee development process to their unique organizational requirements and automate feedback collection across the organization, getting it quickly back into the hands of employees and managers.

Qualtrics 360 leverages the strength and expertise of our enterprise survey platform. Providing enterprises with the technology to collect employee insights is a logical extension to our success in capturing market and customer insights. This is really the last piece of the triad, said Ryan Smith, CEO of Qualtrics. A company’s most valuable asset is its employees. Successful, high-trajectory organizations are investing in and cultivating individual talent. With Qualtrics 360, we make the 360-review process easy, fast, and more affordable. Now, organizations don’t have to look at 360 reviews as a big, annual event ­ but can open up on-going and real-time conversations with employees.

Building a Better Workforce

By streamlining the 360-degree review process for both administrators and employees, Qualtrics 360 allows HR professionals to expand feedback efforts to span every level of the organization. Using Qualtrics 360, HR professionals and frontline managers can collect and quickly analyze feedback, using advanced reporting to help them create focused employee development plans.

Qualtrics 360 fills an important niche between the complex, expensive HR technology suites and smaller, basic tools, said Smith. By allowing organizations to leverage their own employee development content, or any other industry competencies, this platform makes it easier to measure what matters most to companies.

Key benefits of Qualtrics 360 include:

*       Intuitive Interface ­ Administrators can easily configure employee evaluations, without IT support or additional customization costs.

*       Robust Reporting ­ Organizations can run their own real-time reports that distill a clear story for managers to have more effective conversations with employees.

*       Scalability ­ Qualtrics 360 scales to any organizational size, whether 200 or 200,000 employees, and can integrate with existing human resource solutions to help organizations gain a holistic view of employees.

*       Flexibility ­ Administrators can use their own existing 360-degree review content, or integrate any other talent development content.

*   Support and Training ­ Qualtrics offers live, one-one-one product training and award-winning support throughout the entire employee assessment process, from form development to report creation.

“Organizations want the ability to use their own content, customize forms on the fly and access reports in real-time, said Sandra Hartog, president of Fenestra, Inc., a leading provider of premier HR technology solutions. With Qualtrics 360 we have finally found a technology able to do all that. Qualtrics 360 makes the 360-degree review process so much easier and allows us to provide our clients with a seamless user experience.”
