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.

RedCarpet is great for keeping onboarding organized and your work flow the way you need it to be so all internal paperwork requirements are done to your satisfaction. The biggest flaw and it's not really a RedCarpet flaw, is that some people are just not computer literate and we spend time walking them through completing their onboarding. This may be more common in our industry but it is the biggest challenge we have with using RedCarpet.

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

  • All required tasks are listed with due dates to promote timeliness.
  • System sends periodic emails to remind you of status changes, such as new employee added, tasks are due or overdue, notes from other users.
  • New employees can do tasks prehire from home to reduce the amount of paperwork/training to do once they arrive.

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
Michelle Martfeld profile photo
  • I have seen when a task is listed twice with different dates. System didn't recoginze the duplicate and still notified you to do the task even though you have signed it off previously.
  • When listing employees it always lists starting with the oldest. I always have to reverse the sort order. I would prefer the newest to show first since they are the ones I am currently working on.

The individual contact people are alot more helpful than support@silkroad.com. However, once you're live, you're not supposed to use those contact people anymore, and it takes a couple days to even get an initial response from support.

SilkRoad's training/demo video was viewed well prior to beginning implementation. HR Team did not remember details and the video was not sufficient enough to understand all of the features within the system in order to communicate needs to the vendor/implementation expert. Implementation should have been walked through, step by step, by the vendor and each section of their required spreadsheet and the development of the portal should have been explained in depth.

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.

Redcarpet worked well when we first got it. We outgrew it and therefore moved on. I would say that if I could do it all over again - I would have set up the onboarding differently and then we would never have had to change. Cost was also an issue.
