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.

Pros

  • Competency library is robust - includes pretty much any competency that you would need
  • Excellent customer service, both online (demonstrations of how to) and via phone/email
  • Completely customizable - different targets can have different competencies, rater types, rating scales, etc.

Cons

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

  • Sometimes, my Fitbit and even my Max device would have issues synching.
  • There weren't daily challenges, like the Fitbit. That made me have to use both apps, which was more work.

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

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.

DESTROYS the competition. I am so happy that Virgin Pulse took over the capabilities that Gilsbar was in charge of due to Gilsbar 's lack of user-friendly, up to date, technology.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
