VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2012) - Visier Inc., the innovation leader in delivering workforce analytics through the cloud, today announced that the company has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in Human Capital Management Software, 2012 report by Gartner, Inc.
Gartner's Cool Vendors in human capital management (HCM) software for 2012 help organizations throughout the full employee life cycle, from workforce planning to separation.
According to Gartner, many organizations have traditionally underinvested in workforce analytics, but they have seen a strong interest starting to build over the last two years and expect to see this trend continue.
Many organizations believe in the power and importance of managing and reporting workforce analytics but a significant amount of organizations are still figuring out how best to access and measure the data more effectively. One problem that often stands in their way, especially when organizations use multiple, disparate HR systems to track HR data, is that they cannot get a unified and comprehensive 360 degree view of their true workforce data, which is necessary to create a people strategy to increase the ROI of their human capital.
Visier Workforce Analytics is an end-to-end, cloud-based application designed to easily identify the key insights necessary to improve the ROI of an organization's human capital. Visier Workforce Analytics is a powerful, intuitive and interactive solution that uncovers deep insight into the core metrics of your workforce, by answering the most critical and fundamental questions companies have about their workforce, and more importantly, with predictive what-if analysis helps to predict and plan for their future needs.
"We believe our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner is further recognition that our mission to empower organizations with the most critical and deepest insights, in order to optimize their people strategy to meet their business strategy, is resonating with both customers and industry influencers," according to John Schwarz, Founder and CEO of Visier. "Organizations are realizing that their business strategy cannot be implemented without a supporting people strategy. Traditional human capital management approaches have not provided the necessary insight and analytics to create an effective people strategy. With Visier Workforce Analytics, organizations finally have the solution they need to turn insight into action."
