FactPoint Group Recognizes Halogen for "On-Choice" Deployment Model

    Leading Employee Performance and Talent Management Vendor's Model
    Recognized for its Innovation and Leadership in the Market

    OTTAWA, Feb. 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Halogen Software Inc., a leading provider
of web-based employee performance and talent management software, today
announced that FactPoint Group has profiled Halogen in a new study on
deployment options in the HR market. The Silicon Valley based research and
consulting firm selected Halogen based on its "On-Choice" model which enables
HR professionals to select the deployment and licensing options that best meet
their business needs.
    The study, Selecting the Right Deployment Option for Employee Performance
and Talent Management Systems, examined Halogen as a market leading vendor
that offers both On-Demand and On-Premise deployment options. The "On-Choice"
model is at the core of Halogen's business approach and commitment to its
customers, and highlights the market need for easy to use employee performance
and talent management solutions that don't lock organizations into a single
approach or model.
    Carhartt, a leading manufacturer of best-in-class work wear, deployed its
Halogen solution using an On-Premise model. "Halogen was able to offer us the
option of deploying On-Premise so we could maintain control of our HR systems.
Having a choice means we are not tied into a single deployment method and we
can switch if our situation calls for it. This ultimately reduces our
long-term risk," said Katrina Agusti, senior analyst with Carhartt.
    This new study also looks at how as organizational needs evolve,
deployment options may change, as was the case with Educate Online, an
organization which delivers supplemental education services to students and
their families. Educate Online started with Halogen On-Demand because it had
to complete appraisals within 30 days, and this option requires no support
from IT. Later, that division moved to an On-Premise implementation due to
changes in their IT structure and organizational requirements, but with
further organizational structure changes Educate Online moved back to an
On-Demand deployment.
    "Initially we used Halogen On-Demand for 200 or 300 users. In the second
year, we bought servers, went On-Premise and added another 1,000 users," said
Maggie Hird, executive director of HR for Educate Online. "When you are in
sales or acquisition mode, Halogen makes it pretty easy to stay with the same
platform and retain our performance appraisal history. We chose On-Demand or
On-Premise based on the needs of the business."

and Talent Management Systems, is now available at:
