Ottawa, ON – September 15, 2014 — Halogen Software has been rated the top performing talent management vendor in the latest KLAS Human Capital Management report, which focuses on the healthcare provider market. Based directly on customer feedback, the ranking was announced in the KLAS report, “Human Capital Management 2014: Just Efficient Is Not Sufficient.” KLAS uses ratings from hundreds of healthcare providers to rank human capital management vendors, and in the talent management category, Halogen Software outperformed every other vendor.
