Query about Arbeitszeugnis software for HR ppl

Dear all,

I asked for an interim certificate and I'm trying to understand whether the wording in my draft corresponds fairly with my performance rating. I know there are many posts on this topic, but my questions are specific to how the typical Software used to issue Arbeitszeugnis works and I'm wondering if any HR professionals in the forum can clarify a few things.

- What are the most popular Software used by large companies?

- Do companies customize the sentences offered by the software or are they the same across the board (e.g. would Novartis and Roche use the exact same wording)?

- Do the sentences depend on job function, seniority, etc. or only on performance? i.e. If I work in marketing, would there be references to my knowledge and expertise on market trends or would they be the standard "X always completed all her/his tasks to our fullest satisfaction"?

- Would it be ok to ask HR to show me how the software works and have access to it?

Thank you so much!

Weka offers ZeugnisManager software to assist HR departments to write reference letters:


Also, if you are registered with RAV or a resident of the City of Zurich, "impuls" Fachstelle can be contacted to review the legality/ appropriateness of an Arbeitszeugnis:
