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
  • Do you know what drives each individual in your company? The PI Behavioral Assessment provides this insight with details that are profoundly accurate and open up a very candid and genuine conversation for both the employer and the employee/candidate.
  • Do you know where their strengths are? The PI Behavioral Assessment will show you; for those employees/candidates that find it hard to express themselves, this is a true benefit.
  • Do you know whether they are truly fulfilled in their role? The PI Behavioral Assessment facilitates open and candid communications; as you enter into a conversation about what the employee/candidate "truly" wants to be doing, positive decisions can be made that generate improvements the entire company experiences.

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
  • The reporting can feel a bit canned. Some users have described it as an 85% match.
  • Matching a pattern to a pattern name/description can be challenging occasionally.

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

Overall I do like the layout and user friendliness of the PI software, however, there are certain things that are not intuitive to someone who is just beginning to use the access PI system. The biggest difficulty that I still have as a user of the software is to generate a PRO profile request, or to do the comparison of a PI to the pro

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.
PI is a much simpler profile to manage and is clearly about behavior instead of personality.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
  • A positive impact PI has had on our overall business objectives is witness it's effect with employee engagement. We've seen how communication styles have changed among teams; therefore, creating a more engaging environment where employees want to be every day!
  • The only negative impact we've had using PI simply came with poor timing. We just launched PI assessments to the entire organization and within the following weeks it was announced that our company was merging with another organization. Some individuals assumed that we were using this PI Assessment to determine if they were able to keep a position with the new company and were either reluctant to take the assessment or didn't complete it with an honest response. When we finally got word out about the great things PI does, and how it has nothing to do with their job position throughout the merger, we were able to ease some tension.
