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.

Namely

Namely is an amazing platform. My main recommendation for new and future users would be to utilize all that it has to offer! Put in the time to customize it and make it your own and you will not be sorry. Even if you only want to use if for basic functionality, it is still worth it. The ease and cleanliness of the platform saves me a lot of time when I make updates, run payroll and explain things to employees.

Pros

  • EchoSpan was extremely supportive in the initial training portion and is extremely quick to offer support when required.
  • Filled our request for customization and were easy to work with.
  • Excellent on-line training videos
  • PTO Tracking - the app and website make it simple for employees to request PTO and for managers to approve and track their team's vacation time.
  • Reporting - every field in Namely is reportable - which is great. We're able to track which techs have certification, for example.
  • Newsfeed - when you're close to 400 people across ten locations - it's great to have a "virtual" headquarters for all your employees to share and view information.

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
  • More interactive
  • Surveys and/or Poll - both anonymous and not - or partner with a provider that can
  • Engagement features to encourage folks to log in daily for updates - not just my hourly folks to clock in

Overall, Namely is a very user friendly platform, most of the functionality can be learned with out much training or guidance. They have designed it to be modeled similar to other social media sites interface which makes it clean in design and easy to navigate. If you do have someone at your organization that is less tech savvy, one of the most impressive parts of Namely continues to be their client support. They will support you and give guidance in every aspect if its training or just pointing out a feature and how it works

I never have to wait more than a day for a response to my questions - they immediately respond with an answer or with the plans to get the answer

Alternatives Considered

Reporting, conciseness and detail.
Namely is much more user-friendly and even employee friendly as the interface is so easy to navigate and clear to change and use daily. I would definitely recommend to other companies looking for a fully combined software for all functions.

Return on Investment

  • Self Awareness
  • Better hiring processes
  • We've been able to save on our benefits renewal costs by going with their brokerage services as well as getting a reduction in service fees.
  • The best part is how much more value they've added to our overall function beyond just the expense of an HRIS/Payroll system.
