One of my employees thanked me profusely and said it gives her something to live up to. I’d give this a 9 (out of 10).
(PRWEB) August 2, 2006
SuccessFactors, the leading global supplier of on-demand, Web-based performance and talent management solutions, today announced substantial adoption for the company’s Manager’s Edition product. Designed to help individual managers develop and deliver performance reviews quickly and painlessly, SuccessFactors Manager’s Edition has gained rapid adoption with customers and is on target to surpass the company’s targeted sales projections.
The most recent customer wins include individuals from the PGA Credit Union, Harvard University and Great Western Building Materials. Current users of the web-based, on-demand application encompass an impressive roster of companies from a wide variety of industries, including financial services, insurance and mortgage, education, information technology, manufacturing, medical, marketing services, security and construction.
"We are seeing an increasing number of people who are leading small businesses or managing small teams who want a more effective employee performance review process," said Karen Melchior, Director of Manager’s Edition. "These individuals understand the importance of performance and talent management and are eager to put an automated solution like Manager’s Edition in place."
SuccessFactors Manager’s Edition includes a competency library, a writing assistant and a section for employee notes in between reviews. The competency library, featuring 51 skill categories and a writing assistant that "fine tunes" feedback automatically, are among the most popular features. Over 2,800 professionally-written phrases are readily available to include as suggestions for feedback.
"The writing assistant is fantastic," said Kevin Vincent, President of Luggage Direct. "One of my employees thanked me profusely and said it gives her something to live up to. I’d give this a 9 (out of 10)."
Customers report that prior to implementing the SuccessFactors solution, it typically took three to four hours to write each employee review. Manager’s Edition cuts that time by more than 50%, while providing significantly better feedback. The technology is designed to enable individual managers or small business owners to easily produce and deliver professional-quality employee reviews.
"It’s a slick program," said Zack Cooper, Sr., President of Zack Cooper & Associates Commercial Insurance Services. "My effort was appreciated by the employees."
Ideal for individual managers in larger organizations or for small business owners with firms up to 25 employees, the Manager’s Edition suite is available for a limited time for $99.95 per year for up to 10 employees and $199.95 per year for up to 25 employees.
