Deal Doubles Miller Legg's Commitment to SilkRoad's Talent Management Solutions

The success of our OpenHire web-based recruiting and hiring process brought clarity to the drawbacks of our legacy paper-based performance review process

Winston-Salem, N.C. (PRWeb) March 20, 2007 - SilkRoad technology, inc. today announced that Miller Legg has successfully implemented WingSpan, the performance management component of SilkRoad technology's Life Suite of web-based talent management solutions.

Miller Legg, a Florida-based multi-discipline consulting services firm, selected WingSpan to modernize its performance management function by standardizing company wide bi-annual reviews and deploying a system of cascading corporate goals to align the focus and efforts of the company's employees. The deployment of WingSpan has also shifted the entire process into a customized online environment, eliminating the challenges of tracking and storing tens of thousands of paper documents required by the legacy performance review process.

Miller Legg chose WingSpan after a thorough review of the performance management marketplace. Key decision factors included WingSpan's flexibility, affordability, and customization features, as well as the pre-existing relationship Miller Legg had with SilkRoad technology. Miller Legg implemented OpenHire, the recruiting management element of SilkRoad's Life Suite of talent management solutions, in early 2006.

"The success of our OpenHire web-based recruiting and hiring process brought clarity to the drawbacks of our legacy paper-based performance review process," said Kelly Eger, vice president of human resources for Miller Legg. "The SilkRoad technology team listened to our needs and delivered a WingSpan implementation that super-charges our performance review process and meshes perfectly with OpenHire."

"Miller Legg's decision to entrust SilkRoad technology with another key talent management function is a testament to our continued commitment to world-class customer experiences that improve the entire employee life cycle at our client companies," said Brian Platz, general manager of SilkRoad technology."
