announced that independent research firm Bersin & Associates ranked Halogen as
one of the market leaders in its recent report on talent management vendors.
Halogen received strong ratings in multiple categories related to product

The research study, Talent Management Suites: Market Realities,
Implementation Experiences, and Vendor Profiles, evaluated vendors across
seven key areas. Halogen received the highest - a four-star ranking - in
customer satisfaction based on its outstanding references, support record and
overall customer experience.

fact, I interviewed more customers than planned to ensure that the results
weren't an anomaly," said Leighanne Levensaler, principal analyst for Bersin &
Associates, a research and advisory firm focused on enterprise learning and
talent management. "Halogen's customers are fiercely loyal and all plan to
implement additional applications in the future. The company received the
highest possible ratings on responsiveness, domain expertise, follow-through,
and overall partnership."

estimated to be at $2.3Billion in 2008, which encompasses strategic HR
functions such as recruiting, learning management, compensation, performance
management, and succession planning.
