In response to global demand for its award-winning talent management solution, Halogen Software today announced the opening of a new office in Sydney, Australia to better support the needs of the Asia Pacific market. Halogen has seen 86% growth in annual recurring revenue from international deals and the company more than doubled the number of Australian-based customers in 2011. The opening of the Sydney office will allow Halogen to more easily market and sell to this region, while maintaining its commitment to deliver a world class customer experience.
Research from the Australian Human Resource Institute (AHRI) confirms that the issue of talent attraction, development and retention remains the number one priority for organisations in the country1. With the projections of skills shortages through to 2020, the lack of qualified professionals for available positions makes talent management a key imperative for HR and executives in both the public and private sector. As an industry-recognised leader, Halogen Software is well positioned to help HR professionals in Australia and New Zealand address these challenges.
Teachers Credit Union, Australia’s third largest credit union and soon to become Teachers Mutual Bank, has been a long-standing Halogen Software customer. “As a result of using the Halogen system, employees have full visibility into their job responsibilities and performance objectives, which has contributed to high employee satisfaction,” said Marco Sicurella, Senior Manager, Human Resources, Teachers Credit Union. “Halogen provides excellent support, the system is user-friendly and their product range is continually improving with each update.”
Halogen Software is firmly committed to delivering a world-class customer experience and has consistently been rated with the highest levels of customer satisfaction amongst talent management vendors by analyst firm Bersin & Associates. The company offers an integrated, organically built suite of talent management products which cover the full lifecycle from hire to retire and are designed to drive value for HR, managers and employees. Built based on extensive research into customers’ needs and industry best practices, the Halogen Talent Management Suite™ delivers a consistent and intuitive experience for all users.
“Opening an office in the Asia Pacific market fits our business model as it emphasises a local presence backed by a powerful global network of offices, support professionals and capabilities,” said Paul Loucks, President and CEO, Halogen Software. “Operating locally in the markets we serve enables us to gain an intimate understanding of the challenges of the area and best work with our customers to help them leverage their talent management investment to its full potential.”
