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.

HealthStream

I would ask the project manager/leader if they intended on developing their own content, or if they were content with HealthStream's various content libraries. The decision to use HealthStream as a development tool, internally, cannot be taken lightly. There is a lot of work and required expertise involved in designing and maintaining original course materials. I would also ask if the project manager/leader had considered the amount of time required to manage a full-service HealthStream environment.

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
Michelle Martfeld profile photo
  • Hard to ensure learning retention since employees can simply click through the modules if they choose.
  • It doesn't remind the employees via email that assignments are due, you have to log in to the site to see that.

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

HealthStream met our needs and they were very responsive on the customer service side when we had issues trying to upload course assets. It was mostly stable, at times when running reports it may crash - but uptime was very acceptable and within industry norms. Pretty easy to get the navigation of the tool down.

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 have also used products from SWANK healthcare and Oracle. While cost was a consideration in choosing both of these solutions - neither was as robust as HealthStream in reporting or the ability to assign courses or training to employees. Also, the UI with HealthStream is much easier to navigate and more intuitive.
