The OKR Software category now has a number of vendors to choose from. Comparing OKR software platforms can be hard, especially if you're new to OKR and don't really know what you want and how to compare the different OKR solutions. This resource is as much an OKR buyers guide as a comparison. It is intended to help you know which features matter and why, as tell you which OKR software companies should be on your shortlist.
We get to respond to requests for proposals for OKR software most days and therefore get to see common requirements. What is below is a structured list of requirements we get to see and respond to. We have added additional information on why these features are requested by management. We have also given an employees perspective on why specific features matter.
Ultimately there is no better way of seeing if an OKR software is the right one for you without knowing what you want and then experiencing the solution for yourself. ZOKRI offers all feature trials for up to 30 days. Trials include expert on-boarding and tools integrations.
We welcome the opportunity to be compared directly to OKR software tools in the market. We get chosen more often than not. So please take the opportunity to see ZOKRI in action yourself.

ZOKRI is headquartered in the UK with coaching and customer success support in Europe and America. It’s the only non-VC backed and profitable OKR software company.
ZOKRI’s focus and success is based on non dumbing OKRs down, but understanding what helps companies use the OKR framework in a mature and successful way, and how to avoid common pitfalls with better features.
If you want more than OKRs then ZOKRI can optionally be extended to support more of your HR systems and processes.
Although HRIS systems often have basic goal setting features, they never offer the depth of features required by strategy, operational and team leads. Goals are then often fragmented. ZOKRI has highly developed HR features and can consolidate tools that offer personal developmental and performance goals, as well as cultural, role based, and shout-out based recognition. These can then be brought together in ZOKRI’s powerful appraisal management system.
ZOKRI pricing is $12.50 per user per month with all features and integrations being accessible.
Perdoo is a German OKR company. Like ZOKRI they offer both software and coaching. And like ZOKRI they also have KPI features that are often missing with other OKR platforms.
Another plus for Perdoo is that they have a Strategic Pillar alignment feature that for corporate planning and the use of OKR as a strategy delivery framework is important.
ZOKRI offers more features for KPI management and is more configurable in how Strategy is defined. For example, you can use Balanced Scorecard / OKR hybrids as well as Pillars.
Perdoo pricing is comparable to most OKR software vendors with users based pricing at between $9.50 and $17.00 per user per month.
GTMHub is a UK headquartered OKR vendor that offers a good range of OKR features and customization options.
GTMHub does not offer Mission, Vision, Strategy modules and therefore Strategic reporting is not possible. OKR reporting like with all platforms is certainly available, as is the ability to track KPIs.
Their pricing is between $19.00 and $29.00 per user per month, with the $19.00 plan offering limited features and customization options.
Lattice is a US company that has a hybrid between an OKR tool and HR. The OKR features are where the focus of the comparison is and perhaps because of the generalization of the tool, these are not as evolved as others.
Examples of the limitations are the integrations and KPI management features are really limited. Only when you mature your OKR use will you realize how much these would be missed.
The OKR module costs $8 per user per month. There is a minimum annual agreement of $4,000. All contracts billed annually.
Betterworks is a US company that has chosen not to develop extensive OKR management capabilities in favor of investing in employee engagement survey features. As such there are key capabilities missing like Strategy and KPI management and reporting.
The OKR module costs $10 per user per month when billed quarterly. Employee engagement features are addition costs / bundles.
