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.

Organizations who have very few applications and/or very few positions posted are probably less likely to benefit as high from PeopleAdmin. Large organizations who have several positions and/or several applications/applicants can definitely benefit from this product. This product is not as well suited for performance management as I had hoped because there is not a lot of freedom to creating and designing different evaluations for different position types in the system when you have an organization that has thousands of different employees and types.

Pros

  • Interpersonal relationship
  • Team Building
  • Acknowledgement of weaknesses
  • Accurately records all applications for a position, eliminating any human error on recording applications.
  • Generates reports for the organization rather than requiring the employee to gather the data themselves.
  • Facilitates the application process by only allowing applicants to submit fully completed applications.
  • Allows departments to ask specific supplemental questions with pass/fail answers to facilitate the screening process.
  • Serves as a library for all positions at the organization so that job descriptions, qualifications, and records are readily available.
  • Continuously working at all times rather than only during open business hours (i.e. deadlines can be extended to midnight rather than 5 p.m. ET).
  • Provides IT support at all time through the PeopleAdmin Community page, FAQ, and live staff that responds to any issues in an extremely timely fashion.

Cons

  • Easier interpretation
  • The 5.8 to 7.0 upgrade is brutal, and does not carry forward historical data.
  • The performance management portion of PeopleAdmin has a bad end user experience in the organization. It is not easy and user friendly.
  • PeopleAdmin in general is very awkward in your switching of different hats (employee, supervisor, employment, etc).
  • Reporting in PeopleAdmin 5.8 is very hard and the structure of tables is strange
  • The newer version does not contain the functionality with 5.8
  • It does not integrate very well with our ERP system

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

It works for what we need it to and is great for higher education. Since applicants apply to multiple jobs on campus, it is great for applicants to store and update information and keep track of the positions that they have applied to and see the status of their applications. It also allows for applicants to upload resumes easily.

Alternatives Considered

Reporting, conciseness and detail.
I have used SAP's e-recruit, ADP and Brass Ring.PeopleAdmin is more user friendly than SAP and ADP.PeopleAdmin is more customizable than the others.PeopleAdmin's customer support is much better than the others by far. Their staff is very helpful and willing to adapt your system for your needs.

Return on Investment

  • Self Awareness
  • Better hiring processes
  • It does the job managing the recruiting lifecycle. Taking the approval process from paper to software is highly beneficial.
  • The customer service is impeccable, they truly do care about their customers.
