Initially we used Halogen On-Demand for 200 or 300 users. In the second year, we bought servers, went On-Premise and added another 1,000 users
Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) February 27, 2008
Halogen Software Inc., a leading provider of web-based employee performance and talent management software, today announced that FactPoint Group has profiled Halogen in a new study on deployment options in the HR market. The Silicon Valley based research and consulting firm selected Halogen based on its “On-Choice” model which enables HR professionals to select the deployment and licensing options that best meet their business needs.
The study, Selecting the Right Deployment Option for Employee Performance and Talent Management Systems, examined Halogen as a market leading vendor that offers both On-Demand and On-Premise deployment options. The “On-Choice” model is at the core of Halogen’s business approach and commitment to its customers, and highlights the market need for easy to use employee performance and talent management solutions that don’t lock organizations into a single approach or model.
Carhartt, a leading manufacturer of best-in-class work wear, deployed its Halogen solution using an On-Premise model. “Halogen was able to offer us the option of deploying On-Premise so we could maintain control of our HR systems. Having a choice means we are not tied into a single deployment method and we can switch if our situation calls for it. This ultimately reduces our long–term risk,” said Katrina Agusti, senior analyst with Carhartt.
This new study also looks at how as organizational needs evolve, deployment options may change, as was the case with Educate Online, an organization which delivers supplemental education services to students and their families. Educate Online started with Halogen On-Demand because it had to complete appraisals within 30 days, and this option requires no support from IT. Later, that division moved to an On-Premise implementation due to changes in their IT structure and organizational requirements, but with further organizational structure changes Educate Online moved back to an On-Demand deployment.
“Initially we used Halogen On-Demand for 200 or 300 users. In the second year, we bought servers, went On-Premise and added another 1,000 users,” said Maggie Hird, executive director of HR for Educate Online. “When you are in sales or acquisition mode, Halogen makes it pretty easy to stay with the same platform and retain our performance appraisal history. We chose On-Demand or On-Premise based on the needs of the business.”
