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.

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

  • 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
  • Integration with jobbing.com. PeopleAdmin seamlessly populates job offerings on our jobbing.com web page.
  • PeopleAdmin handles the recruitment process very well.
  • PeopleAdmin if very good at processing job candidates up to hire.

Cons

  • It took us a little while to figure out how to set up a 360 (we didn't watch the demo videos until later), but once we did, it was very easy to use.
  • The ability to integrate data from other systems presented some problems.
  • The ability to customize was not as readily accessible as they originally shared.
  • There were issues with duplicate entries that were not easily resolved.

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

Not likely the organization has already gone to the use of a new tool

Alternatives Considered

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.
We selected PeopleAdmin because of the cost. If cost were not an issue, we would have probably gone with another product. The customer service support from our implementation team and post implementation was very strong

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
  • Better customer service.
  • Less time to fill.
  • Increased awareness in open positions at all levels, ie. President.
