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.

Suited for- It's a great one start shop for information. If you want your data all in one place and easy to access, you cannot beat LumApps for this. It's ease of placing pages across multiple sectors, menu navigation, and org chart integration are lovely. It showcases information and files very well with easy web page design that brings it all together. With only a little bit of training many people can use the product and create content. Less Appropriate- While great at what it does it is still a place to showcase information, not house it. It's not a replacement for Microsoft or Google regarding online file storage. It does not do the storage. It just makes files easy to access if your company houses them already. This same idea applies to Active Directory, it can do a lot of great customization of roles and allow/highlight information for people if they already have great data about people. It is a challenge if the backend data profiles of a person are not already syncing from other systems.

Filled our request for customization and were easy to work with. Excellent on-line training videos Read full review Offers simple addition of custom content types that give the ability to apply different access and distribution levels. The HTML widget allows for the simple removal of WYSIWG tools to simplify the view for content contributors. The ability to rearrange layouts is very simple. Read full review Cons EchoSpan's 360s are completely customizable, so content improvements are up to the user Read full review The editing user interface is a bit wonky and occasionally glitchy. The back-end options are not organized super well, which can make it confusing to find the right settings. The customization options are somewhat limited without advanced CSS/dev skills, and the basic functions can be a bit challenging for some non-technical users. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Customer support and the cost of the product would be my number one reasons. Customer support is fantastic!

The tool is easy to use. Even without a dedicated product owner we feel confident using the system for our needs.
Read full review Usability
If you are a content owner, you need to learn how to use the tools and this can be time-consuming and not simple. We rely on the support of our internal LumApps team to provide support and train us on the tools. But it is fairly convenient once you know how to use it correctly.

I've seen or used several of the other 360 tools. EchoSpan is better in nearly every way. It is more customizable. It can be administered completely by someone internally, so no need to request someone to set up a 360 - you can just do it yourself. Competency library is great, and you can create others if you want to. Reports are easy to interpret. Very good customer service

Our organization selected LumApps for its customizability, integrations with the Google suite,
, etc., in addition to the customizable meta-data that would allow for a unique user experience for our global teams so that users in the Latin American region, for example, would no longer be inundated with content that did not apply to their region or market.
