OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 13, 2012) -
Halogen Software closed its best third quarter on record, with notable 30 percent growth in annual recurring revenue year over year. The quarter was also marked by significant customer wins, high customer retention, key enhancements to the Halogen Talent Management Suite™ and a record setting customer user conference.
The company's growth in the quarter was fueled by the addition of a number of organizations to its client roster across healthcare, manufacturing, professional services, public sector, technology and education sectors. A few of these new clients include: Berkeley Homes, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), Bragg Communications Inc., City of Rawlins, Canal Insurance Company, HEICO, API Technologies, FSC Pediatrics, Australian Institute of Management NSW & ACT Training Centre Limited, Halifax Regional Medical Center, Magnesium Products of America, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, and Heartland Bank and Trust Company.
"We selected Halogen because of the flexibility of the solution to meet our unique management needs as well as the in-depth, customizable analytics and not forgetting the ease of use on the front end for our internal "customers" - our Team Members," said Julie Dobulis, HR Director, HEICO. "We have a large, diverse workforce in varied geographic regions and Halogen will help us to improve organizational alignment by not only automating our organizational development process but also by delivering a consistent structure across business units."
Davina Askin, Talent Management Executive at GSUSA explains why her organization selected Halogen and the importance of unique product features to their organizational talent strategy. "Girl Scouts of the USA is using the talent profile portion of Halogen's eAppraisal module," said Askin. "Halogen's search features, cost-effectiveness, and reputation for excellent customer service were key factors in our selection. Having our employees' talent profiles will help us match our organizational needs with our existing talent more effectively and efficiently."
Other highlights from the quarter include:
- Announcement of coming features to the Halogen Talent Management Suite: Easy access to HR analytics, an enhanced mobile experience, increased flexibility for larger enterprises and enhanced usability across all employee groups are among the many updates coming to the suite.
- The 2012 Halogen Software User Conference which took place in September was the company's largest to date, drawing hundreds of customers from around the globe. Top HR thought leaders and Halogen customers shared strategies for addressing key workforce trends and received valuable insight into talent management strategy and real-world Halogen product success.
- Halogen Software adds several new content providers including 360training.com, EBSCO Publishing, Vado, Inc. and Workitect, Inc. Each best-in-class vendor offers unique out-of-the box solutions that tightly integrate with the Halogen Talent Management Suite, providing mid-market organizations with valuable content such as competencies and e-learning courseware.
