Coveted Industry Awards Based on Views of Buyers and End Users

London, 31 October 2008 - SuccessFactors, Inc. (NASDAQ: SFSF), the global leader in on-demand performance and talent management solutions, today announced that it won the coveted Talent Management category of the Software Satisfaction Awards at an awards ceremony in London last night. The prestigious Software Satisfaction Awards are based on the views of genuine buyers and end-users of business software applications - not those of a judging panel. This means that the Awards act as a valuable guide to any business taking the decision to purchase new software applications.

The Sift Media Software Satisfaction Awards were established in 2006 to reward high standards from software application providers serving UK businesses. This year’s awards covered 19 categories across the business disciplines of: accounting & finance; human resources; training; CRM; and customer management.

“These awards are voted for by the people who really matter – those using the software – which is why it is such an honour to win, and why this is such a prestigious industry accolade,” said Andy Leaver, vice president of sales for EMEA at SuccessFactors. “As a company, we work hard to understand our customer’s challenges and requirements, and winning an award of this type that reflects the ‘people’s choice’ is a great validation of that effort.”

SuccessFactors performance and talent management software includes recruiting management, goal management, succession management, 360-degree review, compensation planning, learning and development, and analytics and reporting applications. The solution creates a company-wide network of information related to employee performance, including skill-sets, interests, career aspirations, ability to relocate, experience, languages spoken and more. By providing deep, real-time, company-wide visibility into such critical performance data, companies are able to make better, more informed decisions about how to promote, recruit, compensate, reward and manage their entire employee base.
