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.

When you don't need to customize, I can see where Dayforce would be great for most businesses. Unfortunately, our company is very large, has several combined legacy systems, and therefore we require a lot of customization to make things match/work as needed. We also are simply not able to report on everything we see in the system, which we need to be able to do to ensure things like taxes and earning codes are set up as needed, and to satisfy our users and auditors. Dayforce is a powerful database, but because it is also large it can be hard to use. Some of our less computer-savvy field users simply get overwhelmed by the user interface.

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
Michelle Martfeld profile photo
  • It offers a lot of solutions "out of the box". If your company has no specialized/customized needs this would be excellent.
  • For the most part, customer service is responsive, aside from the busiest times of the year.
  • Documentation is extensive on all parts of the system. The DIG (Dayforce Implementation Guide) in particular, is very helpful.

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
Michelle Martfeld profile photo
  • Training and sales seem to be out of sync with the actual system. Sales promises our leaders things that in real life are not possible, or require additional fees/services to implement. Training has featured things that are no longer available live in the system. Support sometimes is out of sync with updates as well.
  • Support is overwhelmed the entire year. This means slow response times, unless you mark everything as urgent. If a ticket is marked as high priority, unless it is escalated we may not get a response beyond "your ticket has been received" for two weeks or more. Ceridian needs to hire more support people.
  • Communication on changes that will be made by hot fixes is often done after the fact.

Take your time and make sure to delegate enough resources in the testing phase prior to going live. Test every scenario you can think of, because it will come up after your in production.

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.

It’s been very helpful to our organization to have all over our HR components housed in one application, rather than piecemeal in various other systems. Those separate systems sometimes break the communication bridge that binds the two and disables our ability to do our job efficiently. This single application helps us to ensure all data is available to us at all times. It also assists us to be most efficient in that we don’t have to reenter data in various applications.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
Michelle Martfeld profile photo
  • Without being in the director's chair it is more difficult to comment on ROI and cost savings. However, I can say that linking time, HR data, and payroll (and soon attendance) has lead to increased efficiency for reasons stated in prior answers and this has resulted in myself and my colleagues to complete payroll sooner and enabled us to work on other projects with more time and energy.
  • Continuous calculation has increased efficiency and productivity for the same reasons as stated/referenced above.
  • Cross-function linkage has also reduced errors and thus decreases time spent correcting and increased internal employee satisfaction.
  • Complementary features such as job mapping for workers comp and year end tax filing also smoothen many monthly, quarterly and yearly processes and enables users to spend time on other year end or monthly/quarterly responsibilities.
