OTTAWA, Canada (PRWEB) September 8, 2005 - Halogen Software Inc., a leading provider of Web-
based employee performance management (EPM) software, today announced it received a 'strong positive' rating, the highest level of recognition in the 2005 Gartner Employee Performance Management (EPM) Software Vendor MarketScope Report.
The report, published by Gartner Inc., the world's leading provider of research and analysis about the global information technology industry, evaluated and rated vendors in the Employee Performance Management software market based on seven key criteria: product and service capability, affordability, technology and scalability, references, viability, market momentum and vision.
A 'strong positive' rating is awarded to a vendor identified as a solid provider of strategic products, services or solutions, with customers who continue to reinvest in the vendor's offerings and potential customers who consider them a vendor of choice.
"We are extremely pleased to receive this 'strong positive' rating from Gartner," said Paul Loucks, President of Halogen Software. "Earning Gartner's top rating confirms what we have been seeing from our prospects and clients. Market enthusiasm for our products has been phenomenal and has translated into 51 new EPM customer wins in Q2, leading all EPM vendors."
In the EPM Software Vendor MarketScope report, Gartner notes that EPM is one of the fastest-growing segments of the human capital management (HCM) software market and part of the move to a performance-oriented culture is ensuring incentives support desired actions and behaviors. To that end, Halogen recently introduced Halogen eCompensation, a powerful new complement to its flagship Halogen eAppraisal and eAppraisal Healthcare products. Halogen continues to gain market share by delivering affordable, easy-to-use Web-based software.
"We are not surprised that Halogen has received a 'strong positive' rating, as we have been using Halogen eAppraisal for 3 months now, with great results," said Frank Drdek, VP Human Resources, First American Corporation. "Their solution is one of the few products we have seen that really delivers on its promise, and support has been great too-from installation and training to our initial implementation, all went smoother than expected, especially their timely responses with our customized requirements. Our managers also appreciate how eAppraisal makes employee reviews so much easier and more professional. We congratulate Halogen on its new ranking."
