SAN MATEO, Calif. – June 25, 2007 – SuccessFactors, the leader in on-demand performance and talent management solutions, announced today that more and more mid-sized businesses are adopting their SuccessPractices suite of performance and talent management applications.

SuccessPractices is pre-configured based on both academic best practices and designs that drive the best results for hundreds of SuccessFactors’ high-performing mid-sized business clients.

Built on SuccessFactors’ expertise in bringing performance and talent management success and real business results to more than 1,300 companies, SuccessPractices brings what is most vital for mid-sized businesses to quickly implement and improve their performance management processes while allowing room for future growth and customization. The solution is tailored to companies with employee counts ranging from 300 to 1,500 and offers additional pre-configured content packs such as industry specific content for those companies in healthcare and financial services, development content for companies looking to expand into career development, and will soon offer several language packs for global companies in need of multi-language capabilities.

Cray Inc., a mid-sized company that designs and manufactures supercomputers, turned to SuccessPractices to streamline its performance management process across the company. “SuccessPractices was pre-configured and ready to match our needs since the first day of implementation. It’s given us the HR resources and business results of a large enterprise while still offering an easy-to-implement solution that has the flexibility and room to grow with our employee headcount as well as the ability to add other product modules over time,” said Bruce Dittemore, HR manager at Cray. “Since getting ‘On SuccessFactors,’ we have turned our performance and talent management process into a major strategic asset – one that is efficient and effective.”

“Due to their rapid growth and quickly changing business environment, mid-sized businesses often have immense need for human resources process and strategy, but don’t have the resources to develop these,” said Ligia Zamora, director of product management at SuccessFactors. “SuccessPractices gives them a quick-start way to begin thinking strategically about performance management and build human resources processes that can drive the company’s business success.”
