These reports provide immediate, invaluable insight into pay practices. CompAnalyst also features survey library improvements enabling filtered searching through default scopes, mapping new scopes and jobs for year-over-year survey data updates, and supporting regression surveys.

"Market pricing is made simple with CompAnalyst, especially for compensation experts who use multiple surveys to price large numbers of jobs. They'll find they save significant time completing their work," said Brent Kleiman, SVP, marketing & strategy at "CompAnalyst is also a critical tool for measuring the ROI of compensation survey data and using the results to target spending only on those surveys that produce the most on-target results for the organization."

A Webinar, titled "Model Your Merit Programs and Manage Pay with Ease," is scheduled for Thursday, December 3, at 12 noon EST / 9 a.m. PST, where attendees will learn how CompAnalyst can help users analyze pay competitiveness, simplify cumbersome survey participation and automate market pricing all in a single, Web-based solution.
