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.

Small Improvements

Small Improvements is well suited to end of year performance reviews (which is how my company uses the service) and next year's goal setting. I am not familiar with other performance review tools in this space, but this one appears quite basic beyond providing a centralized service for submitting and receiving performance reviews.

Small Improvements

  • The interface could use an update
  • Doesn't do much more than let employee and manager share reviews with each other, so it could be considered unnecessary

Alternatives Considered

EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

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

Small Improvements is less capable compared to the competing platforms I have used due it slow and outdated looking UI, feature set, and ease of use

  • I can't really comment on this aspect of Small Improvements, but it does help centralize this process, so that should save us time
