Halogen Software Offers Soft Landing for Unhappy SuccessFactors Customers Following SAP Acquisition

Talent management leader Halogen announces special program for SuccessFactors customers wanting to move to a different vendor

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2011) - In response to the planned acquisition of SuccessFactors by SAP, Halogen Software, a market leader in talent management solutions, and SuccessFactors' largest competitor in the performance management space, has announced a special "switch program" for SuccessFactors customers unhappy with the takeover news.

"We have already received feedback from a SuccessFactors customer with concerns about the deal," said Halogen CEO, Paul Loucks. "We want to provide a cost-effective and stable alternative to their current situation.

"While SuccessFactors shareholders clearly benefit from the transaction, customers may be disadvantaged - especially those in the mid-market. SAP is well known for their focus on very large global enterprises, offering complex customized on-premise HCM solutions, which are very expensive to implement and maintain over time. SuccessFactors customers may prefer partnering with a talent management vendor that's been widely proven as easier and friendlier to work with. Halogen continues to receive the highest ratings in customer satisfaction because of our passion to deliver a world class customer experience. We are pleased to offer SuccessFactors' customers, looking for an alternative, a soft landing."

Accordingly, Halogen will waive any software fees for the remainder of the customer's current term of their SuccessFactors contract, for customers who decide they are better served in the long run by moving to Halogen now.

Halogen has extensive experience in helping SuccessFactors' customers move to Halogen's organically built, best in class talent management suite.

SuccessFactors customers who would like more information on the Halogen switch program can contact: switchprogram@halogensoftware.com or call 1-866-566-7778.
