Halogen Announces Record Year - Company Solidifies Leadership Position, Secures Strategic Wins Over Competition



    OTTAWA, Feb. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Halogen Software Inc., a leading provider
of web-based employee performance and talent management software, today
announced that 2007 marked another record year in sales with 60 percent
year-over-year growth. The fourth quarter of 2007, included record revenue
with the company closing nearly 200 deals. Halogen's proven ability to deliver
an offering that provides enterprise-level functionality to organizations of
all sizes, as well as a unique "On-Choice" deployment model has established
Halogen as the solution of choice.
    The employee performance and talent management market is growing rapidly,
with a recent market study from Bersin & Associates valuing the talent
management market at an estimated $2.8 Billion in 2008. Halogen's growth
continues to outpace even the rapid growth of this market segment due to the
company's focus on highly powerful, flexible and affordable employee
performance and talent management applications. The company continues to build
on its momentum in the industry securing its leadership position by winning
nearly 200 deals and 200,000 seats in 2007 in competitive opportunities over
its largest competitor, SuccessFactors.

    Staying Informed with Halogen

    One of Halogen's newest customers, comScore, Inc., with nearly
900 clients, is a global leader in measuring the digital world. comScore
analysts apply a deep industry knowledge to help clients design powerful
strategies for their online marketing programs. To maximize this human capital
expertise, the organization recognizes the need for an enterprise-level
employee performance and talent management solution.
    "With a geographically dispersed workforce, a paper-based process was
cumbersome. We looked for an online system that would enable our employees to
complete their appraisals wherever they are and make sure the process is
consistent across all locations," said Glenn Krauser, Sr. Vice President of
Human Capital with comScore. "In the end, Halogen gave us the functionality we
need and enables us to maintain the same process and forms our employees are
familiar with. As we introduce changes to the forms or process, we will depend
on the Halogen system to implement them."
    The addition of industry-specific solutions for financial services and
professional services to Halogen's product family, as well as Halogen's
long-standing and successful healthcare solution, contributed to the company's
growth this past year. Customers in these verticals rose by over 60 percent
year-over-year.
