Company Extends Broad Industry Accolades as Award-Winning Mobile Social HCM Applications Recognized for Innovation and Market Impact
WALTHAM, Mass. – November 6, 2012 – Peoplefluent®, a leading social human capital management technology company, today announced that Ventana Research has selected Peoplefluent Mobile Talent Management as the winner of its 2012 Technology Innovation Award. Pioneering a social platform for Human Capital Management (HCM), Peoplefluent is the first company to integrate award-winning mobile and social functionality to deliver a fully differentiated collaboration platform. Most recent product innovations focus on engaging all employees, anywhere, at any time, to dramatically accelerate workforce collaboration and productivity.
“Peoplefluent has long been regarded as an innovator in user experience in its applications and now has innovated with its impressive suite of mobile applications that have been designed to meet the needs of business and support work anywhere and at any time, but also to engage employees with a social collaboration experience needed in today’s workforce. Bringing talent management to mobile technology transforms the opportunity for business to truly achieve the mission of human capital management,” said Mark Smith, CEO and Chief Research Officer, Ventana Research.
The Ventana Research award is the latest in a series of industry recognitions for Peoplefluent across its broad suite of best-of-breed products for talent management. During the last two years, Peoplefluent has made significant investments in product innovation around Mobile, Social (Socialtext) and Analytics (Aquire) – investments which have resulted in dramatically increased sales and industry recognition. In October, Peoplefluent’s Mobile Talent Management was named a top HR product of 2012 by Human Resource Executive® magazine. And, for the third year in a row – first for its analytics product line, last year for its mobile suite and this fall for its new Social Talent Management platform – the Peoplefluent solutions have been selected for presentation at the “Awesome New Technology” session at the HR Technology® Conference & Expo. In July, the company’s Compensation and Recruiting products were identified by IDC as Market Leaders for 2012. In addition to the most recent award, Ventana Research previously recognized Peoplefluent as a “Hot Vendor” in Ventana Research’s 2012 Value Index published in June.
“This has certainly been a transformative time for Peoplefluent and we are honored by the recognition of Ventana Research for our technology innovation as well as powerful endorsements for our solutions by so many important industry influencers,” Charles S. Jones, chairman, Peoplefluent. “I am deeply appreciative of the steadfast commitment and drive of my management team and of the determination and hard work of all the employees who have tirelessly delivered excellence to our customers throughout this growth phase. These awards are a direct result of all of their inspirational contributions.”
Peoplefluent Mobile Talent Management, an extension of the Peoplefluent Social Human Capital Management platform, powered by Socialtext, its affiliate, provides mobile access to core talent management processes, making information about recruiting, compensation, employee performance and leadership development available whenever and wherever the workforce needs to make informed human capital decisions. The company recently introduced three new mobile applications to its existing suite: InSight Executive and OrgPublisher Executive, new tablet applications, deliver powerful analytics and insight into workforce metric trends and performance. People+1, a new smartphone app, streamlines coordination and encourages collaboration and engagement by delivering all employees instant access to the entire workforce.
