What is OutSail?

OutSail is a cutting-edge platform that assists companies in researching, evaluating, and selecting the right HR Tech platforms tailored to their specific needs and goals. We understand that every company has unique HR challenges and objectives. That's why our platform offers personalized services, guiding you through every step of the decision-making process.

How Does OutSail Work?

OutSail operates in two primary phases: Research and Evaluation.

  • Research Phase: In this initial phase, your company creates a profile on OutSail detailing your HR Tech requirements and goals. Our platform then provides comprehensive profiles on each vendor, complete with unprecedented data, allowing you to read through each option, compare and contrast the best solutions, and build a 'shortlist' of the most appealing vendors. From your shortlist, you can select up to four vendors as finalists and request demos to explore their offerings in more detail.

  • Evaluation Phase: Once the research phase has culminated in demo requests, OutSail transitions into the evaluation phase. Here, you can 'design my demo,' providing vendors with more information to tailor their presentations to your interests. Invite colleagues to join your workspace, assign permissions, create subgroups, and utilize our scorecard tools to evaluate each vendor systematically. Our platform offers suggested evaluation criteria, a criteria library, and pre-populated questions to ensure a thorough assessment process.
