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.

Peoplematter is a great solution for companies who want to save time and money on the onboarding process. It is a very simple solution that will really aid your managers and HR with their daily duties. It provides relief by ensuring the W4 and I9 are filled out accurately, plus additional onboarding items. It integrates with job boards making posting jobs a breeze. It has great reporting functions to help track where your new hires are coming from, turnover, assessments scores, etc. Honestly, I feel PeopleMatter's Price Point makes this product valuable to any size company or business

  • Simplifies the On-boarding process. Easy to find and sort through applicants based on the individual store needs. Ensures all onboarding is complete before moving forward with the new hire.
  • Integrations aid us in ensuring data flows through all systems based on our needs. Ensure the data is correct and duplicate entries no longer need to be made.
  • Customer service is quick to answer and solve your questions.
  • System is simple to use, our restaurant managers love the look and feel of the product.

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.

  • Honestly, it is hard to find anything that needs improvement. Each time we have had an issue, it is resolved quickly. We wished for a better support page, it will be coming soon. We asked for a performance module, we begin BETA testing in a few weeks.

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

I would definitely renew our use of PeopleMatter, because it would not be beneficial or cost effective for us to go back to doing it in house. If they are willing to listen to our needs and wants and update the program for the better on a regular basis why would you. I feel like we got in on the ground floor and we are evolving with them

I would just say make sure you really think about how you are setting up the product. Are you using the roles correctly? Can we automate any processes

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.

Previoulsy, we did everything in house before so PeopleMatter has been a time saver. I use to spend days just checking paperwork to make sure it was complete and then to verify applicants was a nightmare. PeopleMatter has simplified all of that and completely changed my work perimeters so that I can focus on training our manager instead of scolding them for incomplete paperwork

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
Michelle Martfeld profile photo
  • We doubled our tax credits in the first 2 years - more than $800,000.
  • It has opened a larger applicant pool - we gather more than 500 apps each week and the assessments help us begin with the best candidates
  • LEARN has allowed us to provide consistent onboarding and orientation to every new employee upon starting work versus waiting for the next available training class! Getting qualified people trained and to work faster
