Software and Analytics

Streamline Salary Benchmarking

Don't waste time responding to surveys and trying to force your diverse jobs to fit into one-size-fits all job descriptions, only to have to spend even more time aging, point-factoring and adjusting the data to fit. Upload your entire organization in minutes, define your positions one time and you are ready to benchmark thousands of unique positions (or employees) at any time, against matching market rates, with a few mouse clicks.

Set and Adjust Pay Ranges

Let us do the math for you. Easily create and maintain pay ranges that align with your company's compensation strategy. Further refine the target pay ranges for different categories of employee, for example, by function/by level. Insight will create range minimums, midpoints and maximums based on the strategy you set.

Get Pay Right and Identify Flight Risks

Don't risk losing employees by underpaying them, or losing money by overpaying them. Are you paying fairly across the organization, or are some groups of employees paid more than others? PayScale Insight shows you where potential trouble spots lie.

Price Jobs in Multiple Geographies, Industries or Company Size with MDA

The Market Differentials Analysis (MDA) feature shows how pay varies for a set of selected jobs across selected markets. PayScale's new MDA feature accounts for market, industry and geographic variances with a pinpoint accuracy unavailable anywhere else. It uses actual, real-time market data for your workforce and markets instead of more generalized cost of living geographic differentials that don't fit.
