About us

Panoramic Feedback is a subsidiary of PanoMetrics Inc., founded in 1998.

The company was built by coaches and consultants Esther Kohn-Bentley and Timothy Bentley, to respond to the real-life needs of organizations. We’ve been providing 360-degree feedback online for over two decades.

Not to brag, but we were the first successful 360 system on the Internet.

During that period, we’ve had the privilege of conveying valuable feedback from a million and a half responders to hundreds of thousands of subjects.

Because of its quality, Panoramic Feedback has attracted dozens of multi-national and international clients. As a result, it now supports the use of over 50 languages.
