What really tipped the scales in Halogen’s favor were the strong, unsolicited references
Ottawa (PRWEB) July 31, 2007
Halogen Software Inc., the leading provider of Web-based employee performance and talent management software today announced the second quarter of 2007 resulted in the most new enterprise customers in any quarter to date — with 81% growth in new customers over the second quarter in 2006. This record growth is due to the company’s focus on delivering outstanding value to each and every customer and their exceptional reputation among HR professionals.
"What really tipped the scales in Halogen’s favor were the strong, unsolicited references," said Kathleen Bocek, vice president of human resources with Campus Management Corporation. "They spoke volumes about Halogen being user friendly, easy to implement and cost effective. We implemented in just three weeks and are really pleased. "
With 55 new enterprise customers in the month of June alone, the quarter ended on a very positive note and expectations are even greater as Halogen enters the third quarter. In addition to the record number of new customers, more customers are buying suites or multiple solutions. The company also broke previous records for the number of existing customers that purchased additional licenses and additional product offerings -- a testament to the quick and substantial return on investment their employee performance and talent management solutions provide.
"We required a solution that would be able to keep up with our rapid growth and our changing needs," said Greg Wiggers, president and CEO of HC IT Developers Inc., a healthcare technology company. "By the time I called Halogen, after six months of research, I already knew that I wanted to purchase the entire Halogen suite."
The company’s record second quarter included the addition of new customers such as:
American Chartered Bank, Avis Budget Group, Gould Evans, Harrison and Star, Kanawha Stone Company, Kitco, Lightspeed Research, Moses Cone Health System, Nason Contracting, Orange County Library, Riverview Hospital, Seminole County, SS&G Financial Services and Vincenti and Lloyd & Stutzman LLC.
In the second quarter, registration for the 2007 Halogen User Conference also greatly exceeded last year’s numbers for the same period. The conference, being held this September will provide Halogen users with the opportunity to further strengthen their Halogen expertise, generate time and money saving ideas, attend sessions designed to address specific industry needs, discover key tips and tricks that further increase the usability of the Halogen Suite and more.
