Blitz Selects Halogen Software for Talent Management

Agency Implements Leading Employee Performance Management Solution to Nurture Top Talent and Support Company Goals

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2010) - Halogen Software today announced its award-winning talent management solution has been selected by Blitz, the connections company. As a marketing firm dedicated to developing powerful communications platforms, Blitz understands the critical connection between employee performance and the agency's overall operations. Blitz will use Halogen to support talent management priorities such as goal alignment, engagement and retention and to drive high performance. 

Halogen was selected from a competitive field based on their solution's flexibility and scalability, which enables Blitz to meet its growing business needs and ensure future growth.

"Halogen's solution not only reflects industry best-practices, but how we want to communicate with our staff," said David Frogel, Chief Operating Officer, Blitz. "Performance management is critical to us as a company. We realize that employee development goes hand in hand with client success and thus we decided to complement Halogen's appraisal solution with their e360 Multirater module to facilitate direct feedback from our clients."

The Blitz team also put a priority on the software implementation process and focused on finding a vendor who would be dedicated to their success. "The implementation was fantastic — not a transactional 'one-size-fits-all approach'," noted Frogel. "I have worked with many implementation consultants, so I feel confident in saying that Halogen's team is first rate. Couple the excellent process with their staff's knowledge and thorough follow through, and we are talking about a partner who is committed to a client's business success. That's the kind of company we want to work with."
