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.

Great for manager self-service such as cost center or manager changes that happen frequently. Easy to run payroll and off-cycle payroll runs are unlimited for direct deposits. Allows staffing to scale up or now without adding to payroll or benefits staff. Would not recommend for multiple subsidiaries (i.e. separate companies with different tax IDs) as these come at a cost and can be tedious to setup.

Cons

EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

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

UltiPro

  • It would be nice if there was an area for tracking progressive discipline and hopefully that will be coming in the future.
  • Cognos Analytics is a great product but can be difficult for some to use. The web-based classes can be a bit challenging with the volume of students and the inability to truly interact with an instructor one-on-one.

Ultipro is by far the very best HCM solution that I've used, and I don't mind acting as a point of contact to anyone that might be interested in hearing from an actual user about my experiences with the suite. Ultipro can pretty much handle anything that you throw at it, while ensuring that what you throw at it is compliant with federal and state regulations. It really is quite simple to use and only gets easier to use the more you use it obviously. I would encourage anyone that is having issues with the suite to partner with their customer success manager to tackle anything that is at any point problematic.

No customer service model is perfect, but UltiPro does a good job when it comes to their support. Tax Services could stand to be a little more transparent and more frequent in their touchpoints, and integration support (BA's, Developers) could be better with response time and communication as well. Activation support, however, was excellent during implementation.

Nov 2018 Update: In-person training is a must-do for anyone wanting to get more familiar with Ultipro. Going to a live class is ideal because it allows one to network with peers in or not in your field, but more importantly you can spend time with an Ultipro expert (instructor) that has that added inside edge (knowledge) that makes one want to learn just a bit more to be at the same level as the instructor.

April 2016: I've been to more than five in-person training sessions and each and every time the instruction has been superb. I had never used UltiPro prior to March 2016, but their Intro classes were so well-designed and at a reasonable pace that I was quickly able to learn the platform and even fall in love with the ease of use. Once the in-person training is complete, Ulti even has a rewards program of sorts where the classes you take rewards you with points that you can trade in for novelty items or additional specialized training and gift cards. Pretty cool!

Alternatives Considered

EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

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.

BI is what sold us. And the fact that you were the easiest to work with and knew what you were doing. It built our trust in the company that you would treat our account the same way you sold it to us.
