Peopleclick Authoria Delivers Most Complete View of Total Workforce and Enhances Compliance Reporting Functionality

Company Expands Integration Roadmap to Accelerate Benefits of Multi-Product Suite With Blended Full-Time and Contract Workforce Visibility, Analytics and Reporting

RALEIGH, NC and WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - May 17, 2011) - Peopleclick Authoria, offering a unique combination of best-of-breed solutions for Talent Management, Vendor Management and Workforce Compliance and Diversity, today announced the delivery of expanded workforce visibility with key integrations across its Talent Management and Vendor Management Solutions product lines.

As organizations look for new ways to address the changing economic climate and the shifting demands for productivity and flexibility in the workplace, they are struggling to manage and measure a blended environment of permanent, part-time and contract employees. With this emerging trend, Peopleclick Authoria has developed new integration between its Vendor Management and Talent Management suites. The Company also saw a 28% increase in Vendor Management revenues in the most recently ended quarter over the same quarter a year ago, indicating an increasing number of organizations have selected its Vendor Management capabilities to gain unprecedented visibility into blended workforces, enabling broader views into both contingent and full-time workers.

"Demographic changes and the recovering economy, coupled with the large number of baby-boomers in the workplace, have created a tremendous increase in the number of contingent workers. Traditionally, organizations have looked upon contingent workers as contractors, and they have not managed them in the talent management process," said Josh Bersin, President and CEO of Bersin & Associates, a leading analyst firm in corporate learning and talent management. "Peopleclick Authoria's talent management solution specifically helps to manage the hiring and ongoing development of the contingent workforce, helping to optimize this critical part of the organization."

Peopleclick Authoria's initial integration initiatives focused on seamlessly sharing data across the company's Vendor Management and Recruiting product lines, delivering combined views and analyses of the complete workforce. This first phase enables companies to source both contingent and full-time employees through existing corporate recruiting portals, providing direct sourcing of all talent while leveraging a single corporate brand and process. This technological integration permits a single view of a broader talent acquisition process that has traditionally been executed discretely from two different, and often unrelated, departments -- one that oversees the requirements for contract workers such as procurement and a separate organizational function that manages the full-time employee recruiting process such as HR. By consolidating the sourcing of all talent more closely, an organization's talent pool can be aligned against specific corporate goals and objectives. Additionally, centralized talent profiles can be built for use across other talent management initiatives from compensation analysis to performance management.

Peopleclick Authoria's subsequent integration initiatives will provide a full view of all sources of talent from the talent profile and organizational charting functionality within the Talent Management suite. By creating a hybrid view of contingent and permanent employee populations, organizations gain a holistic workforce perspective comprised of all sources of talented people. In the coming months, Peopleclick Authoria will be announcing details of new functionality that will enable organizations to assess, measure and reward their complete workforce, regardless of employment definition as a blended whole, which is particularly critical as businesses seek to make larger decisions about corporate performance, overall compensation planning and succession initiatives.

"Peopleclick Authoria is committed to designing solutions that deliver actionable talent views to enable the real-time adjustments that will allow organizations to keep pace with the speed of today's supply channel demands. As we continue to build out our best-of-breed suite vision, we remain focused on key integrations that provide the most relevant talent views and analysis to our customers as they face a changing landscape in the talent pool and within their own workforce composition," explained Tom Tisdale, SVP and General Manager of Peopleclick Authoria VMS. "We are a provider with a proven track record in managing the performance and talent demands of every segment of the workforce. With our latest product releases due in June, Peopleclick Authoria, enhanced by the advanced modeling and analytics functionality available through the newly purchased Aquire business, is a natural leader to help organizations manage their growing opportunities and concerns inherent in a blended workforce, especially as they relate to talent optimization, cost containment and compliance classification requirements of all employee and non-employee workers."
