We are thrilled that for the fifth consecutive year, PeopleFluent has been recognized by IDC as a Leader in the integrated talent management space! Having one of the most renowned analyst firms in the HCM space tout our capabilities as “best-of-breed” for the entire talent management suite, and rank us as Leading among a very select number of companies in this space, speaks to our continued commitment to excellence. We are very proud of the year-over-year track record of success we have built with this phenomenal achievement.
The IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Integrated Talent Management 2016 Vendor Assessment is the industry’s premier vendor assessment tool for end-to-end talent management. In the June report, PeopleFluent’s solution suite was recognized as a best-of-breed offering for integrated talent management as well as recruiting, compensation management, performance management, and learning.
In a press release about the news, our CEO and Chairman of the Board Charles Jones stated, “The fact that this is the fifth consecutive year we have been recognized as a Leader for our success speaks to the incredible hard work and dedication our global 700+ employee base has to offering the best solutions to our growing customer base. I am proud to be a leading this company as we continue to focus on offering human resource professionals around the world solutions that have depth, value, and are unmatched in this industry. This is a resounding affirmation, from a premier analyst firm, that when it comes to evaluating integrated talent management solutions, PeopleFluent is one of four vendors in the world that should be shortlisted for inclusion.”
One of the best things about this report is that it also highlights that in comparison to the other “Leaders” in this category, we are not just another big company. Our clients have never been “just another customer” to us. They are an integral part of the PeopleFluent family and a key reason we remain so dedicated to innovation. In fact, the report highlights the fact that we continue to spend 30 percent of yearly revenue into research and development. We are also recognized for our vertical focused capabilities, specifically targeting the healthcare, manufacturing, and financial services markets, an effort that we see continuing to grow in the coming year.
PeopleFluent’s commitment to offering a best-of-breed talent management offering is referenced multiple times within the report. The Mirror suite user experience, with its customizable user interface and embedded video and social functionality is a strong differentiator among competitors, as is our ability to integrate dynamic video into all talent applications for dynamic on-demand learning and employee collaboration. Market response to the PeopleFluent’s talent management suite continues to drive company growth as the company saw a 59 percent increase in multi-product wins in 2015 over 2014.
“According to IDC analysis and buyer perception, PeopleFluent is an IDC MarketScape Leader worldwide in integrated talent management," said Lisa Rowan, research vice president, HR, Talent, and Learning Strategies, IDC. “The company is a good fit for enterprises that need a sophisticated talent management solution with consumer-grade usability and have strong features for collaboration capabilities. The system delivers a personalized and collaborative experience that drives improved talent engagement and business performance.”
PeopleFluent’s diversity and inclusion product capabilities, embedded holistically throughout the product suite, are referenced several times throughout the report as a strength and unique differentiator in the market.
Lisa Rowan notes, “The company is also focused on enabling companies to hire, develop, and engage and inclusive and diverse workforce and is enhancing its inclusion capabilities throughout the suite. Of the field of talent management vendors, PeopleFluent is unique in its support for contingent labor and management of diversity.”
As the competitive field continues to become more crowded, PeopleFluent remains ahead of the market with powerful data integration capabilities. The IDC MarketScape report highlights PeopleFluent’s integration services and its ability to connect talent data with a company’s HR, ERP, or payroll data application, providing one source of truth to support talent analytics, while reducing implementation costs and time.
