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.

I think it's a good platform for tracking and monitoring goals, feedback, and development. We don't use the 1:1 meeting feature, however, I can see how that would be valuable for many organizations. I do like that it is very customizable, however, that also presents problems in that sometimes forms and/or processes can be a bit challenging to create easily and quickly.

Pros

  • Interpersonal relationship
  • Team Building
  • Acknowledgement of weaknesses
No photo available
  • Halogen is available in the cloud. This allowed users who were not in positions with access to PCs to utilize the software from home when near a pc.
  • Halogen is able to import data from our main ERP system using a file data dump and continuous reload each day.
  • Halogen is useful for coordinating between multiple areas of the organization. HR no longer has to send out individual emails to users but instead send system messages within the application to let users know their need to complete their reviews.

Cons

  • Easier interpretation

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

Although I am not with the same company anymore, I would have been very likely to renew. In the face of cost cutting efforts, the business may be forced to look at cheaper solutions, but they will sacrifice functionality and ease of use for all users if they opt for a cheaper solution.

No one is perfect, but Halogen's support comes very close. They're extremely helpful and always pleasant and friendly.

Halogen was in place before I joined our company.

Return on Investment

  • Self Awareness
  • Better hiring processes
No photo available
  • Since Halogen has been in place since before I started with the company, I can't give a fair assessment on ROI for pre-Halogen and post-Halogen.
