'On-Choice' Wins Big Over 'No Choice' With Halogen's Growing Customer Base

    Bermello Ajamil & Partners, Carhartt and TU Group Select Leading Employee
    Performance and Talent Management System Offering 'On-Choice' Deployment
    and Licensing options

    OTTAWA, June 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Halogen Software Inc., the leading
provider of Web-based employee performance and talent management software,
today announced that many of its new customers are reducing vendor dependency
and risk with the flexible deployment options that are available with their
award-winning solution. New customers, Carhartt Inc., TU Group and Bermello
Ajamil & Partners selected Halogen's offering based on its proven flexibility
and functionality, as well as the low risk 'on-choice' deployment options it
    While 'on-demand' solutions, which are hosted by vendors, are popular,
many organizations continue to require on-premise deployments for a number of
security, administrative and business reasons. Halogen provides an 'on-choice'
model where customers can select the deployment as well as the licensing model
that best suits their organization's specific needs.
    Carhartt, a leading manufacturer of best-in-class work wear, selected
Halogen eAppraisal to replace its existing paper-based employee appraisal
system. "We selected the Halogen system based on its powerful features, which
met and exceeded our needs. Additionally, they were 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.
    Leading architectural and engineering firm Bermello, Ajamil & Partners,
was looking for a standalone, flexible solution to replace their existing
package. "We looked at a number of solutions, and Halogen not only had more
advanced features-it was simple to use and highly configurable. Halogen has
provided us with the knowledge and know-how to make configurations in a timely
manner. Because of this, we are confident hosting the system on-premise. We
have 'full ownership' of the system and we can make any enhancements
independently as the firm continues to grow," said Jennifer Colina,
compensation and HRIS manager with Bermello, Ajamil & Partners.
    Halogen's nearly 1000 customers are deployed in a variety of scenarios
where they can choose a subscription or perpetual licensing model, and they
can either deploy on-premise or have the solution hosted by Halogen.
    "The most important thing for any new system for us was ease of use, for
both administrators and users," said Iain MacAulay, director of HR with the
TU Group, a group of companies that delivers unique insurance and healthcare
solutions. "We reviewed the available employee performance and talent
management solutions, and opted to go to with Halogen's solution as it met all
our needs and provided us with a number of deployment options, which was a
real plus."
