Halogen Software Signs 100th New Customer of 2004 – Company Growth Rides on Incredible Demand for its Employee Performance Management Software










Ottawa (PRWEB) December 10, 2004

December 9, 2004 –Halogen Software Inc., a leading provider of Web-based employee performance management (EPM) software, has now signed more than 100 new customers so far in 2004. That makes 2004 the strongest year yet for the Ottawa-based company, and makes Halogen one of the most successful companies in its market space.

The new customer wins already translate into 200% year-over-year growth for Halogen—well above the industry rate projected by sector analysts. For example, Gartner analyst James Holincheck’s recently published report on Employee Performance Management (EPM) predicts that “the EPM software market will demonstrate at least a 15 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2008.”1

“Halogen’s growth has been propelled by its award-winning Halogen eAppraisal product—and the dedicated team behind it,” said Paul Loucks, President of Halogen Software. “We’re often told that our solutions have the features customers need, yet are much simpler and more cost-effective to implement and use than those of our competitors. The Christiana Care win we announced last week was another public confirmation of the value that we offer over our competitors.”

Delaware-based Christiana Care Health System is one of the premiere health care providers in the U.S. mid-Atlantic region. It recently selected Halogen eAppraisal Healthcare over competitive product offerings to automate performance evaluations for its 9,500 employees.

“Signing 100 clients this year is an impressive achievement, especially given that a majority of enterprises have yet to move beyond paper-based workforce performance management,” said Lisa Rowan, program manager for HR management and staffing services at technology research firm IDC. “Halogen’s success underscores the opportunity for automating this time-consuming and laborious event into an ongoing function that can drive new processes and guide organizational culture.”
