pihms Announces Strategic Partnerships With Value-Added Resellers

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - December 6, 2010) - pihms, Inc. (, a leading provider of integrated software solutions for tracking, measuring and managing human capital through pihmsLeave Management, pihmsSafety Solutions, and pihmsCare Solutions, announces the consummation of multiple strategic partnerships with value-added resellers. These strategic partners will be using the pihms software to enhance their value proposition and better serve their clients' needs.

pihms currently has partnership arrangements with numerous value-added resellers and expects to continue growing this vital element of its sales and marketing approach. Pat Kalnas, CEO and President of pihms, said, "As employers continue to experience the growing Human Capital challenges caused by ineffective and inefficient management of their Leave, FMLA and Absence processes, pihms is positioning our market presence and capacity to reach those employers with our solutions. One such strategy is allowing Value Added Resellers to incorporate the pihms solutions for their small and midsized employers."

Through these strategic partnership arrangements, pihms now has the ability to access Fortune 500, mid-market and small-market employers and the millions of lives they represent, and act as the administrator for their leave solutions. "These partners cover all industries and have the luxury of either incorporating our products as part of their private labeled or branded solutions, or having pihms serve the client directly. In all cases, pihms becomes the 'Super User' with the expertise to relieve the reseller and the client of the burden of leave entry, system configuration, data importing and workflow design," added Kalnas.

There is growing recognition that absence management solutions are helping large clients improve productivity and profitability. "Unfortunately, the small to midsize employers are feeling the pain from ineffective or nonexistent leave management processes, but until now, they have not had access to an affordable solution," commented Pat Cua, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for pihms. "pihms' capabilities bring world class leave management functionality to these employers, and with our reseller partnerships, the small to mid-sized employers have previously unavailable configuration appropriate for their size. Now, the mid and small markets will enjoy the same business advantage."

"pihms is proud to be able to serve this large and powerful segment of commerce and participate with our partners in delivering valuable solutions to their clients," concluded Kalnas.
