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.

PerformYard, in my opinion, is well suited for any environment where performance management is actively happening. We are in the manufacturing industry and many people here thought that this type of electronic process would never be accepted or adopted. Today we have FULL participation and buy in from all those people and more! This software has revolutionized our ability to perform reviews, efficiency to get them done and delivered to the employee, and taken the burden off HR of having to juggle getting these out to authors every month manually
Read full review 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 Read full review Allows constructive feedback from multiple sources Is easy to navigate and simple to complete with takeaways that are helpful and areas where improvement is needed Can be accessible to employees who are looking to bring on additional resources for a particular project or engagement Read full review Cons EchoSpan's 360s are completely customizable, so content improvements are up to the user Read full review Don't really need to have multiple team member selection options in the dashboard. Would be more efficient to drill down from the team member selected rather than have to scroll through the list amongst all other team members data files. Would be nice if contributors could also opine as to the perceived level of performance for the person they are commenting on, i.e., unsat, sat, excellent. Those are my only issues at this time.

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

It has been excellent among the employees. It is a great way to keep up with the tasks and goals throughout the year. Manager/employee communication can increase with this program. It is very easy to use and understand. Navigation can be a bit tricky but the overall ease of going through it is splendid.

This is one of the best features of PerformYard - it is extremely easy to use and intuitive. There was no learning curve. This is what is so phenomenal about PerformYard. Their layout, while offering so many features, is extremely simple.

The support from PerformYard is unmatched when compared to other systems I have worked with. Not to say that the support personnel always have an immediate answer, but they are so committed to solution and timeliness that it is not long before we are able to work through any issues. Emails are quickly returned for ease of access, and they never fail to offer to hop on a call and visually walk through something if that may help the issue!

Training for PerformYard was fantastic and very easy to understand! I highly recommend this product to any company. It is super helpful for communicating with staff, for keeping track of your goals, tasks and reviews for the current (or past) year. Definitely get online training for implementation. You won't regret it!

Our Human Resources department handled the implementation of PerformYard and they did a fantastic job. A tutorial was sent out via email to all employees with a requirement of viewing it. In additionto that, a ZOOM session was scheduled so that any questions or concerns could be answered after viewing the tutorial.

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

PerformYard is much more specialized for feedback, where the rest seemed to add it as a lesser feature. I wanted a tool that’s built around making it easier to both give standardized feedback as well as receive and review it. This has helped streamline our practices and inspection on completion is easy as well.
Read full review Return on Investment Greater feedback at all levels Increased awareness of challenges and opportunities Better communication and collaboration Read full review It has encouraged me to actually complete goals rather than "almost" complete them because I want to be able to check off the box. Sometimes it's difficult to track goals without clear metrics, however, this might be a positive thing because it encourages the user to create metric-based goals. One positive impact is the impact this program has on extrinsically motivated employees. Read full review ScreenShots EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool Screenshots
