Halogen Software Continues Strong Performance With a Focus on Innovation and Client Needs

Talent Management Leader's revenue growth reflects focus on brilliant customer experience and consistently delivering best to market solutions

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2009) - Halogen Software Inc., a leading provider of on-line talent management software announced that revenue during the second quarter of 2009 continued its historically strong growth. Halogen achieved 52 percent year-over-year growth in annual recurring revenue. This strong growth is marked by the company's commitment to providing a world-class customer experience and its consistent delivery of best to market solutions.

Just a few of the new customers that joined Halogen during the second quarter of 2009 include: Anchor QEA, Atheros Communications, Community Health Center, I2U Solutions SDN BHD, Iogen Corporation, K&N Management, Northern Arizona Healthcare Corporation, Northern Credit Union, NorthStar Financial Services, Rocky Mountain Health Management Corporation, St. Joseph's Health Centre, and Vermont Electric Cooperative.

"Halogen has provided us with brilliant support from day one and we have great faith in the company's ability to consistently and effectively provide us with a world-class user experience," said Alyson Young, HR Director at K&N Management. "Without this level of service even the greatest solution with all the bells and whistles would be of little use to our organization."

Halogen's dedication to providing great value and addressing the specific talent management needs of its clients has been demonstrated in its launch of two industry-first features at the SHRM Conference in June - the Halogen Talent Profile feature and Activity Tracker. Both are designed to help HR with real-world issues they face in the deployment and ongoing administration of their talent management systems.

With the first customizable Talent Profile, Halogen helps solve low usage, limited security, and flexibility problems associated with conventional employee profiles. Halogen's Activity Tracker provides the industry's first consolidated real-time "status update" feed of all talent management activity for users of the system. Using a familiar social networking interface, the feature is built to drive user adoption of talent management within the organization and deliver time savings for HR, management and employees. Both the Talent Profile solution and Activity Tracker feature will be delivered at no additional cost, fully integrated with Halogen's talent management suite 9.1, currently scheduled for release in September.

In addition to these unique features, Halogen teamed with an industry leader, SkillSoft, announcing an agreement to deliver 10 SkillSoft e-learning courses as a standard component of Halogen eLearning Manager(TM). The agreement provides outstanding value to corporate learning centers and a truly seamless user experience for performance-based e-learning.

Each of these milestone product innovations has been well received by industry analysts and customers.
