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

The product is passable and does the job but it doesn't seem to represent the gold standard or be the market leader in anything, it also seems very outdated in terms of aesthetics and functionality. I have used numerous products that serve a similar purpose that seem to offer many more features and ease of usability

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
  • Goal Tracking: Enables users to chart goals, track progress, and provide details about what they want/expect to achieve.
  • Praise Wall: A public place to post positive and encouraging comments about other employees.
  • 360 Reviews: Users can request and gain 1:1 feedback; this can be anonymous if desired.

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
  • The UI is slow, clunky, and sometimes lags when navigating to different menus.
  • When inputting personal reviews many of our users have complained that their content gets removed/deleted while inputting it into the answer boxes.
  • Small Improvements is slow on alerting users of updates (i.e. 360 reviews feedback is completed, someone made a comment on the Praise Wall, etc).

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Small Improvements is less capable compared to the competing platforms I have used due it slow and outdated looking UI, feature set, and ease of use

Return on Investment

  • Self Awareness
  • Better hiring processes
  • The tool has positively empowered us to chart, track, and report back on goals.
  • The tool has had a negative impact on our ability to conduct personal reviews due to the clunky UI and feature set.
  • The praise wall has been positive for the users that take advantage of it.
