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.

[It's] good for smaller organizations with a low level of complexity in terms of geographic scope and reporting structures.

Cons

EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

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

To be honest, this decision would not reside with me, however, while I would recommend some changes, I think that overall Kenexa is an effective 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.

Alternatives Considered

EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

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 did not have much to do with the selection process, but I found out that OpenHire was in the running, which is the worst system I have ever worked with. I was able to share my OpenHire experience, and hopefully that assisted with the selection of Kenexa. Compared to other systems I have worked with Kenexa is a superior system on the recruitment side

Return on Investment

EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
Michelle Martfeld profile photo

Kenexa

  • One positive is the reporting feature and being able to pull OFCCP reports easily.
  • One negative is we failed internal audits because we were not integrated with our current HCM and there was not a smooth data flow all the way until the candidate was hired.
  • We did like that the recruiters could source out of the system.
