Acumen is the ideal solution for engineering teams that want to stay ahead of the competition. Our tailored solution provides quick access to vital data and offers a unique perspective on your talent. Other companies may offer a list of features and generic insights, but we have been working with engineering leaders for over 3 years and truly understand the important factors that are essential to you when choosing a solution. Trust us to give your team the support and tools they need to thrive.

Pilot and Onboarding

Our 3LO integration is non-intrusive and fast, eliminating the need for any organization-wide implementation. In less than a day, you and your group managers can start experiencing the value of Acumen, and be warned – it's highly addictive!

Starting with Uplevel takes more time than most tools out there. Once the initial integration is complete, the Uplevel data science team needs to work on processing your data for their insight computation which adds an additional week to your onboarding time. If you are looking to get value right away, you might not get it using this tool.

Get what you need, nothing more and nothing less. Data is beneficial, but it can be harmful if you don't know how to handle it. We're here to help you solve your problems, not create new ones. We offer you trend insights, alerts, benchmarks, and actionable tips to help you make the most of your engineering talent by going beyond just benchmarks and processes.

Uplevel provides several screens for different users, showing different metrics and charts. While the data itself may be focused on your team, the tool won’t highlight the real issues.

If you need to identify where the actual problems lie in your process, tracking the type of work each team member works on probably won’t reveal any secrets you don’t already know.

Did we say cut the bullshit? $10 per developer, no weird limitations, unlimited team members, projects, and repos. Oh, and you can pay monthly and stop whenever you want.

Uplevel only offers custom pricing. This means you could be faced with an exorbitant cost if you’re trying to support a large team.

Your delivery depends on the work of your team. Get a full understanding of how they’re working, identify your key contributors, and make decisions that lead to success.

Uplevel is project-based. If you're interested in seeing the development and contributors of your project, it'll work for you. But recognise you won’t be seeing any insights or actions that’ll help your workforce work better.
