Halogen Software Wins Top Human Resource Product Award



    Halogen eSuccession(TM) solution recognized for its best-practices
    approach and easy-to-use functionality

    OTTAWA, Oct. 3 /CNW Telbec/ - Halogen Software Inc., the leading provider
of award-winning Web-based employee performance and talent management software
today announced it has won the Top Human Resources Product Award from Human
Resource Executive(R) magazine. Halogen eSuccession(TM) was one of 10 HR
products recognized for excellence and innovation. For 19 years winners of
this award have been chosen by a panel of expert judges as standouts among the
highly competitive field of applicants.
    HR's most coveted product awards will be presented on the opening day of
the HR Technology(R) Conference & Expo. This year's winners made the cut out
of nearly 100 applicants. Each year the editorial staff of Human Resource
Executive identifies those HR products that provide real value to the HR
community. Specifically, judges look for innovative solutions that help HR
professionals successfully contribute to their organization's business goals.
    "The competition continues to get more competitive as the number of
entries grows and the caliber of products escalates," explained David
Shadovitz, editor in chief of Human Resource Executive(R). "We were very
impressed with Halogen eSuccession's best-practices approach to succession
planning. The talent pool model enables organizations to establish a larger
number of "promote-able" employees, who are more likely to stay loyal and
whose skills are better aligned with an organization's strategic plans."
    In December 2006, Halogen Software launched eSuccession, and it is now a
highly-successful part of the Halogen Employee Performance and Talent
Management Suite with more than 100 organizations using the solution. This
offering is a powerful, yet simple to use succession planning tool focused on
addressing the shortcomings of currently available succession planning tools.
Halogen's approach not only follows the new best-practices approach to
succession planning - it also takes the complexity and inefficiencies out of
the process, enabling users to quickly address immediate and long term
workforce requirements.
    "This award confirms our fundamental belief that HR professionals want
simple-to-use yet powerful tools, that provide a great value to their
organizations and help them to achieve business goals," said Paul Loucks,
President and CEO of Halogen Software. "We are pleased that our peers and
experts in the HR field have formally recognized the value of eSuccession and
our commitment to meeting the needs of our customers."
