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 well suited for location based, hourly hiring, and I would highly recommend it for onboarding in any scenario. It is not well suited today for corporate or professional recruiting. The onboarding and compliance components serve all audiences very well.

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
  • Onboarding
  • Job listings
  • Testing services
  • Support team

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
  • I wish PeopleMatter had an option to limit the visibility of attachments. The MyDocuments section allows one to upload important documents pertaining to the employee but because we use PeopleMatter like an online employee file... there are just some things the employee does not need to see.
  • PeopleMatter has an option to have the employer upload documents they wish new hires to view and sign before their first day (i.e. policies, handbooks, etc.). However, it would be nice to make certain documents available to the job that the document pertains to. For example, there is a delivery driver statement that should be reviewed and signed by delivery drivers but this document shows up for all the other positions too such as for servers, cooks, and bartenders who do not need to read or review this document.

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

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.
Seriously, it's the onboarding that sets PeopleMatter apart from the rest. Every payroll company I have ever met with always says their service can work for what we need and replace PeopleMatter. However, they never can link our applications to their site, provide a way to search through candidates, schedule interviews, and allow the new employees to complete their documents the way PeopleMatter does.

Return on Investment

  • Self Awareness
  • Better hiring processes
  • Our pool for applicants has been improved.
  • Our turn over has decreased.
  • Our onboarding is more efficient.
