We wanted to make Quick Start the performance management system for everyone. It needed to be easily understood by anyone in the business (not just HR experts), it needed to be really easy to set up and tailor to different businesses, and most importantly it needed to be useful. And that's what we've built.
Auckland, New Zealand (PRWEB) September 25, 2009
Sonar6 (http://www.sonar6.com), the award-winning innovator in HR Technology solutions, is experiencing unprecedented demand for its newest software release.
Sonar6 Quick Start is a completely online performance management solution, incorporating self-setup and online payment. The Quick Start solution was designed to be accessible to the widest possible range of users, as Sonar6 Head of Experience Michael Carden explains.
"We wanted to make Quick Start the performance management system for everyone. It needed to be easily understood by anyone in the business (not just HR experts), it needed to be really easy to set up and tailor to different businesses, and most importantly it needed to be useful. And that's what we've built."
Sonar6 has received critical acclaim for its unique approach to performance management, and is dedicated to democratizing what has traditionally been the domain of larger organizations with dedicated HR departments.
Says Michael Carden, "Performance management has become a basic requirement of running a business – setting goals for people, understanding their capability, developing skills – but it's typically been the domain of large businesses with large HR departments. Now any business, even those with a single stretched HR practitioner or no HR presence at all, can get started with world class performance management."
The decision to focus on simplifying the performance management process has proven popular with businesses around the world: Sonar6 Quick Start is being used by over 1600 organizations, and the company is welcoming a new paying customer on board every day.
