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.

Cons

  • Easier interpretation
No photo available
  • Some of the questions under situational judgment are subjective and don't take into account different scenarios.
  • The test is a little lengthy.
  • Some people do not test well and I am not sure if there is a contingency built in for that margin of error.

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

There seems to be too much focus on the add-ons, and not enough focus on ensuring that the core system is bug free or delivering what would be expected such a system in 2014

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