gradar features & pricing

gradar is a state-of-the-art, web-based and inexpensive tool for job evaluation. You can use the software directly in your organisation or as an independent compensation consultant as part of your customer project, each with its own license. gradar is available in four editions, from the free basic edition to our enterprise edition with a number of advanced and useful features.

  • The basic edition is ready to use within minutes. You can evaluate jobs within either the individual contributor, managerial or project management career path. Detailed factor descriptions and advanced features are not available. Licenses from users of our Evaluation Edition are automatically converted to Basic after seven days.
  • The Starter Edition is the perfect solution for job evaluation and competency management in Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
  • With the professional edition you will find all you need to conduct an analytical job evaluation and to build and maintain a job architecture in a larger company. The job matching feature translates the results into job codes and/or levelling methodologies from compensation surveys and labour agreements. Grading results may be copied to the clipboard or stored in the online database.
  • gradar's enterprise edition comes with a additional customisation options and advanced features e.g. access control through company-specific organisational units and an easy-to-use, real-time cross comparison.

Improvements and new features are made available to all users free of charge within the scope of their license. Our license model is clearly differentiated and tailored to the needs of our users.
