Staying Informed with Halogen
One of Halogen's newest customers, comScore, Inc., with nearly 900 clients, is a global leader in measuring the digital world. comScore analysts apply a deep industry knowledge to help clients design powerful strategies for their online marketing programs. To maximize this human capital expertise, the organization recognizes the need for an enterprise-level employee performance and talent management solution.
"With a geographically dispersed workforce, a paper-based process was cumbersome. We looked for an online system that would enable our employees to complete their appraisals wherever they are and make sure the process is consistent across all locations," said Glenn Krauser, Sr. Vice President of Human Capital with comScore. "In the end, Halogen gave us the functionality we need and enables us to maintain the same process and forms our employees are familiar with. As we introduce changes to the forms or process, we will depend on the Halogen system to implement them."
The addition of industry-specific solutions for financial services and professional services to Halogen's product family, as well as Halogen's long-standing and successful healthcare solution, contributed to the company's growth this past year. Customers in these verticals rose by over 60 percent year-over-year.
