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.

TalentReef is well-suited for high volume-hiring, as well as for HR departments looking to move off of paper and onto an easy-to-understand platform. I love the ease of integrated assessments and the background checks. This will not be suitable for those looking for time & attendance and payroll systems.

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
  • As an Administrator of the talentReef system, I have access to all applicants for every store across our system all in one location.
  • It is a one-stop function for virtually all of our new hire paperwork.
  • We have not gone entirely paperless with our employee files, but talentReef would be of great benefit to us if/when we choose to move in that direction.
  • The system is relatively easy to learn for store users with all levels of digital expertise.
  • The cost to the organization is extremely reasonable.

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
  • I feel that their team and technology has evolved and grown over my time as a client. I have seen many other systems and I do not seen any areas where I feel Talent Reef is below standard.

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.
I have evaluated several other products in the marketplace and I believe that TalentReef continues to outperform its peers in the following areas:
  • customizable to meet the needs of MY business
  • support team available for same day issue resolution
  • relevant and easy to use add on services (i.e. performance management)

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
  • Transition to electronic files was easy and helpful in tracking onboarding forms.
  • Quality applicants are on demand.
