Halogen Software Achieves 24 Quarters of Year-over-Year Growth

Customer responsiveness, flexibility and industry specific solutions drive record setting 3rd quarter

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2008) - Halogen Software Inc., a leading provider of on-line employee performance and talent management software continues to build on strong momentum, with its 24th consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth. Flexible deployment models, superior customer service, and vertical differentiation are driving uptake of Halogen solutions over its competitors. The quarter also featured Halogen's third annual User Conference, which was attended by a record number of Halogen customers from around the globe.

The company's record third quarter included the addition of new customers such as Alliance Bank, Arrowhead Hospital, Cummins Power South, Hostmark Investors, Kadlec Health System, Northrop Grumman Corporation, PFC Energy, Princess Cruise Lines, Reyes Holdings, Sisters of St. Francis Health Services, Stanley Consultants, Sun-Rype Products and United Way.

As in the previous 23 quarters, Halogen achieved consistently healthy growth in the third quarter despite the challenging economic conditions. This continued growth signals the importance organizations of all sizes are placing on effectively managing employee performance - especially during a downturn.

"We understand the value of employee performance management, and why in more challenging market conditions, having a developed and capable workforce becomes an even bigger asset," said Renee Lytle, CFO with E.B. Horsman & Son. "We will use Halogen to provide ongoing coaching and feedback, and to help our employees develop and contribute even more value to our organization."

The Halogen User Conference, held in September, provided hundreds of Halogen customers with an opportunity to learn how to develop and deliver key HR initiatives by leveraging the features available in Halogen's integrated Employee Performance and Talent Management Suite. Discussions included best practices for appraisals, goal management, pay-for-performance, succession planning and learning management. Customers were also given an exclusive in-depth preview of Halogen's eagerly anticipated eLMS(TM) module that will be released later this month.

The User Conference is just one of the ways Halogen collaborates with its customers to better understand their needs, and to make it easier for them succeed at talent management.

"Halogen has provided great responsiveness and service from the first point of contact with us." Said Kirsti Hunt, Leader of Talent Management with the United Way. "This initial experience gives us confidence that we will be able to leverage the new Halogen solution to help better align and track employee goals and to gather and report on more valuable and actionable information on the development and progress of our employees."

Halogen is one of the few talent management market leaders to provide flexible deployment options for its customers. Offering both Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and on-premise delivery models has enabled the company's vast customer base to choose the deployment that best suits their business needs and culture. Halogen is able to address the requirements for hundreds and hundreds of customers each year, that pure-play SaaS vendors could not.
