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.

Cyber Recruiter

Even though there are some times where it gets really slow, or it doesn't accept certain formats of resumes, it has been working to get things done the whole entire time. It has helped us get each candidate from the pre-screening process all the way through the on-boarding/hiring process - and even to the day of orientation/first day on the job. Cyber Recruiter works well for the hiring process and all four of our sectors use it.

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
  • It is real easy to add candidates to the system and it is really easy to find candidates who are already in the system. Everyday I have to look up a candidate to send them an email confirming their interview is happening, or update their status to show they are moving forward or not moving forward.
  • It is also very easy to route resumes to either the recruiters or the hiring managers. All the hiring managers have to do once they get the email is look at the resume and then choose a status whether or not to bring them in for an interview, with maybe some feedback as to why they chose what they chose. It makes it very simple!
  • I really love the email templates that you can create in Cyber. It makes it much more simple rather than typing the same email that you have to send to candidates all the time. There are many emails that are the same format that I send out everyday, and Cyber really helps me not to make a small mistake by having those templates that you can create.

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
  • One thing that would be really helpful is for Cyber to accept .pdf formats of resumes. Many candidates now have their resume as a pdf, not word, and it is a shame that I have to copy and paste their resume into their system, which ruins the candidates' formatted resume. If anything that is the big thing that could use a change: Cyber should accept both word docs and .pdfs
  • Sometimes Cyber gets a bit slow when I try saving a note, or send an email through Cyber. It is not often, and it does eventually go through in the end. I did check to see if it was the internet but everything else was running just fine, so I know it is Cyber when it happens. It gets stressful at times when you have a bunch of things to do in the day through Cyber, and it is acting very slow.

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

I only give it a 6 because there are small things that could use fixing. While it does get what we want done, there are things such as not letting us upload the pdf format... or getting really slow at times when it is trying to save. It's little things like that could be fixed, but overall the experience is pretty positive and it helps us get what we want done and efficiently.

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.
For awhile we were thinking of using iCIMS, but in the end we continued using Cyber Recruiter (we had already been using it for a time). Yet in the end we chose Cyber because of it is very simple and easy to use. While it may not look very pretty or exciting, it gets the job done, makes the hiring process flow easily, and that is what we really care about.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
  • It has helped us have better customer service. We have been able to keep in touch with the candidates a lot easier especially using our email templates (we use that an awful lot). There are no "black holes" so to speak leaving our candidates in the dark wondering what is going on. That doesn't happen, which is great.
  • Everyone (recruiters) is on the same page. Since we can use notes when changing the status of the candidate in the system, everyone can see why that status was changed, or why we are not moving forward with a candidate. The notes are incredibly helpful for that reason.
