EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

As a 360 assessment it rates very well when compared to our previous vendor. 360-Degree Feedback is more affordable so it allows departments to avail themselves of the opportunity to help their team members learn more about themselves, which would have been cost-prohibitive with our previous vendor.The support department has been FANTASTIC! Quick responses on all any small issues and easy to work with for customizing templates. The system allows us to add rater groups and increase the group sizes easily.

It is well suited for sending out and tracking onboarding documents for new hires. It also allows for integration into the I9 system. One area of improvement would be for a mobile platform to be integrated so new hires can complete paperwork on the go on their mobile phone or tablet

Pros

  • EchoSpan was extremely supportive in the initial training portion and is extremely quick to offer support when required.
  • Filled our request for customization and were easy to work with.
  • Excellent on-line training videos
  • Background checks - user-friendly, quick click to order
  • Candidate visibility - lists candidates chronologically and logs views
  • Locks notes - so you cannot edit after submitting

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
  • Integration into an email, to log all communication in and out of ATS
  • The notes time out too quickly and they don't save or log time
  • Job flow is odd

Alternatives Considered

Both EchoSpan and the other vendor supplied comparable products, so the major difference was the cost involved. EchoSpan is much more affordable and offers a very similar quality of report.
I didn't select this. [The] reason we sought after another ATS, was to get a more efficient workflow.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
  • Negative - losing notes and unable to remember or refer to
  • Positive - uncomplicated
  • Negative - limited filter points, inefficient
