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.

The tool is so flexible and powerful. We have recently trained 4 system administrators in one of our Call Centers to publish eLearning and assign this learning to their call center reps. They have to assign multiple courses every single day. I was able to create a role in the system, where these admins can create content and assign to just their division and it doesn't disrupt our overall corporate training initiatives, while supporting their needs fully.

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
  • CSOD provides an intuitive user interface which aids in its adoption by our varied audiences.
  • CSOD provides phenomenal administrator support in the form of both functionality and advice in the area of learning technology and talent development.
  • CSOD provides class leading reporting capability with new features added on a quarterly basis.

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
  • The loading of historical data during implementation could've gone smoother. I would recommend other customers lean on the out of the box upload tools and not on CSOD's implementation consultants when migrating historical data.
  • While CSOD's certification module is powerful, the interface can be a bit cumbersome (click heavy) for end users.
  • While CSOD offers several avenues for customer support, learning how to escalate pressing issues in an effective manner requires a learning curve on the part of the customer. I would recommend eliciting the advice of other customers.

Customer support and the cost of the product would be my number one reasons. Customer support is fantastic!

It was down for a couple of hours in our first month. Occasionally, in the evening we have trouble logging in even though it is not a maintenance window.

It’s surprisingly slow for a SAAS product. When you click on links, there’s no hourglass or waiting indicator, so it’s difficult to tell if the system is going to respond.

My issues have always been understood and resolved. I don't feel like I'm explaining it to someone who doesn't understand the system. Often times they know the issue and have quick fixes from their experiences.

The interface not great. It would be nice to have a full video vs. slide by slide.

They use their LMS tool – it’s a curriculum. It is slow going.

Dig deep on what your current processes are and how they match up to Cornerstone OnDemand functionality. It's not that the Cornerstone OnDemand is bad, it just the amount of work it requires you to do to get your current data to fit into their system.

Alternatives Considered

Reporting, conciseness and detail.
On the whole, CSOD outperforms the other LMS systems I've had experience with. In my experience the codebase is more robust and reliable, and the architecture allows a greater degree of flexibility when mapping HRIS fields to reflect an organization's structure. From a non-technical standpoint, CSOD surpasses many other providers by being a thought leader in the space of talent development. They offer solutions and philosophies as a value proposition in addition to their technology offerings.
