"If someone asked me whether I thought ERI was worth the value, I would say absolutely. I would say it is an indispensable resource for somebody who is doing compensation, and especially compensation consultants. I can’t even imagine working without it. I use it on every project."

"…what ERI does for us is that we can, on the spur of the moment, put in the location, the NAICS code, and we can look up jobs and do just-in-time assessment of these jobs and price them. It has helped us immediately be able to price jobs and then submit these proposals and then be able to price our bids effectively and efficiently… I can go and show the analysis that has been done within ERI to create this data and that creates some validity for me and provides that foundation that I need to go to the executive team and say, hey, you know this is valid data, a just-in-time market representation of what people are being paid in their jobs."

"We really needed a solid data tool to make sure that we were converting our ranges for where they were. And we knew that we could do that with ERI. What I love most about ERI is just the simplicity. I can go in there any day of the week and say, hey, what is San Francisco’s geographic differential right now. What is the cost to live there, what does the salary look like there, the average salary. It has always been so quick and so easy and I know that I can trust the data which of course, being the comp nerd that I am, is the biggest thing."

"The features that I find the most useful are that you can go years of experience, levels, you can do total comp, you can do variable, you can do base: it is all right there for you and you can do location. I would recommend ERI because I think it is one of the best values for the dollar. You can get a lot of compensation software out there and even surveys, but frequently they are either centrally located to a specific region, and to go nationally it is usually extremely expensive or you have to participate in something and you get something from one organization and something from another."

"We use the ERI Geographic Assessor information to defend ourselves during DCA audits to let them know that this is what the price per or what the salary percent against the US average is for those different areas. Their product is definitely top-in-class and something I would recommend to any of my colleagues in the government contracting space. It is something where you look at geography, and what the level of pay is in a geography and there is no other tool out there that really assesses that from a location to location standpoint and the amount of locations that ERI uses."

In recruitment there may be an opening where the manager said they are looking for a senior-level person, but in the marketplace only an entry-level or mid-level is available, they will ask me to look at the three levels of what that position might be and I have found ERI to be the most efficient and effective to give me that immediate feedback of what 3 levels at the quartile you select might represent as an average salary and relieve the recruiting stress of whether you are paying too much or not enough.

"I have been using ERI for about seven years at different companies and the company that I am in now, and it used to be that I would have a disc that I would put in and it would have to upload every quarter and now I just log on to the Internet and my email and password are all in there and I’m good to go. I would recommend ERI because I think it has a really good cost of living and cost of labor and when you are looking at it and you are looking at a specific job and you want to compare it to your survey data that you are using and you can go by city and drill all the way down to each individual city."

Zachry Construction Corporation

"ERI has been an excellent tool. We use the Salary Assessor, the Geographic Assessor and the Relocation Assessor. Zachry has multiple construction locations spread around the United States, often in smaller towns. We also have multiple lines of business. It is powerful to have salary information at my fingertips for so many titles, locations, and industry types. Our business units love it that we can create lists of benchmark titles, then run them for multiple locations. In a rapidly changing employment environment the quarterly updates are also very helpful."

"I cannot say enough good things about the ERI system. It is very user friendly and a reliable resource for compensation data. We have 1100 employees in 13 manufacturing facilities and 5 engineering offices across the US. I have used several other compensation resources in the past. I have found that ERI is the most accurate and best tool I have come across. I would highly recommend it to anyone. We have the salary assessor and relocation assessor. This is a cloud based system that is refreshed quarterly."

Laura Willis - Assistant Compensation Manager
