    Nearly 200 Customers, Shares Real-Life Strategies for Maximizing the
    Value of Halogen Offerings and Taking HR to the Next Level

    OTTAWA, Sept. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Halogen Software Inc., the leading
provider of award-winning Web-based employee performance and talent management
software today announced that its second annual User Conference was an
overwhelming success with nearly 200 customers in attendance, double the
attendance of its 2006 event. The Conference offered nearly twenty dynamic
educational sessions featuring keynote speaker Mel Kleiman, an internationally
recognized authority on attracting, selecting, and retaining employees.
    The Conference sessions offered great value to all attendees from new to
seasoned users, providing insight and practical how-to knowledge that will be
taken back and used to immediately enhance the way organizations use Halogen's
software. Sessions ranged from how to increase HR's strategic voice and gain
greater credibility with executives, to adapting Halogen software to an
organization's changing needs.
    "This has been a remarkable experience-unequaled by anything else I've
attended in my 10-year career," said one Conference attendee. "I appreciate
Halogen's attention to detail and their efforts putting together such a
well-rounded, practical and motivational conference."
    The Halogen Software User Conference provided a forum for clients to
share their perspectives on the challenges that face the HR community and how
using Halogen solutions enables them to effectively address these challenges.
As well, the Conference gave customers insight into Halogen's product
development road map for the immediate and longer term future.
    "I can't wait to be part of next year's conference. As part of the client
advisory board, I am impressed with how Halogen sincerely listens to its
clients and actively integrates their suggestions into future versions of the
software," said Tony Elliott, Ecology Manager with McStain Neighborhoods. "My
input is valued by Halogen and being here at the Conference has allowed me to
learn how to maximize the enterprise-class features that are part of the
Halogen solution."
