EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

I can't imagine a scenario where it is less appropriate than any other 360 tool. It's easy to use, customizable, and inexpensive. Reports are easy to interpret. Great tool for anyone looking to implement a new 360.

Kenexa

Kenexa asked a lot of questions that pertained to real life scenarios for retail managers. It is very helpful to see how people react under pressure. It measures the years of experience in comparison to how an individual would react thoroughly.Some of the more complex math and theory questions may or may not apply to the type of manager we need for this specific industry given all you need is a high school diploma and 2-3 years of management experience to be considered for the role.

Pros

  • Interpersonal relationship
  • Team Building
  • Acknowledgement of weaknesses
No photo available
  • We can build/configure as required, to respond to both planned and ad-hoc business requirements.
  • Global sparring and knowledge about global recruitment issues, which are not always ATS related.
  • Customizable automations are fantastic

Cons

  • Easier interpretation
No photo available
  • A Client Services Consultant is pretty much required to navigate between bugs and the global support center. A Workbench trained administrator is invaluable.
  • Once languages have been added to a requisition, it is not possible to remove them without rebuilding the req and sending it for approval again. Many defaults point to the system having been originally designed to for system users to only work within a single req language.
  • Reported issues seem to too frequently end up in a loop between the 1st and 2nd level of support, or returned as being fixed, when it isn't.
  • Too many bugs, especially following a release of a new functionality.
  • The system is designed for all users to access the system, even though it may be sold as data can be accessed via emails. Out of system approvals and notifications are disappointing.
  • Too many functionalities which would help usibility are only available to standard fields, which for the most part are unusable.
  • Product releases are normally too far between and lacking functionalities which one would expect in 2014.
  • The Internet Explorer version supported is always behind, by at least one version, if not two.

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

I wouldn't mind using Kenexa again because I've already learned it and feel I can pick it up again quickly. I have, however, encountered other tools that are faster and more efficient that I would be happy using in it's place. But overall, I feel as though I'd be able to pick it up again, and teach it... Training someone on it, however, seems like it would take some time and practice with the tool.

There Tier 1 support is not knowledgable and things that should take less than 1 day can take 3-4 weeks to get resolved.

JobDiva, Maxhire. Kenexa is a much cleaner interface than the other two - appears to be a standard system across organizations.
