Share Article

Vendors selected are innovative, impactful and intriguing.

DoubleStar, Inc., a leading provider of workforce analytic solutions, today announced its inclusion as a “Cool Vendor” in the Gartner, Inc. “Cool Vendors in Human Capital Management Software, 2006” report published March 16th, 2006. According to the report by James Holincheck, Research Vice President at Gartner, DoubleStar was one of five vendors recognized by the analyst firm as “representing emerging trends in the HCM technology industry.”

Gartner defines “cool vendors” in the HCM space as companies that have taken “familiar HR and workforce problems (such as timekeeping, recruitment, analytics, employee engagement surveys and benefits) and are utilizing new technologies to achieve improved results.”

In the report, Gartner states that “most HR organizations don’t have the quantitative skills to analyze the data or the business skills to help managers and executives use the insight provided by this new type of workforce analytics solutions.”

“Being named a ‘cool vendor’ in the HCM space by Gartner, the leading analyst firm, is a prestigious honor for DoubleStar. We are thrilled that the topic of workforce analytics has been brought to the forefront in this report -- an area that many organizations today are looking to focus on but have many questions about how and where to begin,” said Larry Hutchison, CEO of DoubleStar. “Our hope is that this piece of research will be leveraged by HR executives and CXOs to help validate the need for measuring human capital to obtain true workforce intelligence in order to impact overall business performance.”

The industry’s most complete HR business intelligence solution, the DoubleStar Workforce Insight suite enables organizations to consolidate, organize and deliver information about key areas of HR including workforce, staffing, compensation, talent and development and enterprise performance.
