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.

Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment

It's scary to start a new company, but once you have a better idea of how to interact with other, it takes some of that uneasiness away.

Pros

  • Competency library is robust - includes pretty much any competency that you would need
  • Excellent customer service, both online (demonstrations of how to) and via phone/email
  • Completely customizable - different targets can have different competencies, rater types, rating scales, etc.
  • Clear explanation of results and what they mean
  • Visual representation of results
  • Easy to use program

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
  • The only thing that needs working on is the beta site. That's why it's in beta, though. Some of the functions aren't working properly yet, but they will be and I am very excited for that.

As with anything, there are always ways that the product can get better and continue to grow in its offerings and support. However, my team has been very impressed with the ease of use of the system. Our managers have their own log ins and there is no tutorial needed to explain how to use the website

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.
There are many different personality assessments that are currently available for companies to utilize, but in my opinion, PI provided something that no other assessment tool was able to. It really is an insight into how someone perceives scenarios not only at home but in their worklife. It can tell you more about their drives, initiatives, etc. so that you know how to best approach a situation to come to a win-win. If I had to start from the beginning and pick a new personality assessment tool, it would be PI.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
  • In the recruiting process, we've been able to find good fits for niche positions, and the added benefit is onboarding them is quicker because we already have an idea of what their development plan should be.
