We really enjoy our 2016 "Cool Tool" conversations that continue to take place at each of our CareerXroads Colloquium Meetings.  At our recent Analytics meeting, we discovered over 70 tools that the experts and leaders who are running reporting and analytics at our member companies shared they're using in some way, shape, fashion or form when delivering recruiting insights and reports.

We found hours of conversation awarded both to solutions that we expected, like Tableau, Broadbean's BDAS, and Qualtrics, as well as to vendors that many had not heard of but were eager to take back to their teams.  Some of those interesting conversations circled around Spotfire, Pixeden, Kanjoya and Storytelling with Data (book) just to name a few.

Our CareerXroads members are able to log in and view the complete list below that provides the tool or solution provider, its "claim to fame," a direct link to their services and whether or not our members are paying for the solution or vendor.  Current members may also continue the discussions and evaluations here on
