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.

No, we just had a bad experience unfortunately.

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
  • Unfortunately our experience was very poor, so I don't have anything for what they do "particularly" well.

Cons

  • Easier interpretation
  • Transparency about the capabilities of their system. We would have never chosen WingSpan had we had a clear picture of the limitations of their system.
  • Ease of use - as an administrator we found it to be difficult to work with. Of course, improvements may have been made in this area since we used it last.
  • The user interface could use some updating.

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

Alternatives Considered

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
We used Cvent following our WingSpan experience. It worked out much better and had more capability than WingSpan.

Return on Investment

  • Improved awareness of employee strengths and weaknesses
  • I feel it set us back a bit, and also caused us to lose credibility with our management team after it turned out to be a "failed experiment."
  • We have gone back to a manual system of doing goal setting that works better for us.
