Ally.io allows you to create and update objectives and key results in the tools your teams are already using. You can create organizational alignment with top-down and bottoms-up cascading and ensure every team and individual is working together toward the top priorities of the organization.

Pros of Ally.io
Ally.io allows you to manage OKRs inside the collaboration tools where day-to-day work is happening.

In addition, Ally.io provides other HRIS and data integrations with popular business applications, authentication providers, and human resource information systems such as Salesforce, Jira, Smartsheet, Asana, ZenDesk, Hubspot, DOMO and Tableau, among others.
