cfactor Redefines Enterprise Social HR Solutions with Version 8

Saskatoon, SK, Nov 20, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- cfactor Works Inc. (cfactor), developer of socially infused Human Resource technologies, today announced the release of cfactor Version 8. Version 8 provides a blueprint for companies to follow as they grapple with how best to leverage social software within their existing Human Resource technology environments. Version 8 delivers on cfactor's strategy of providing easy to use, highly adopted solutions by infusing social, automation and rich media into all aspects of its on-demand HR software suite.

"Unlike many vendors in the space, cfactor delivers a cutting-edge Social HR platform that effectively integrates and enhances an organization's current environment," said Cary Schuler, CEO of cfactor. "Enterprise technology environments are complex: multiple applications, numerous employee logins/URLs, lack of data and process integration all impact productivity and employee adoption. The last thing companies want to do is add to the complexity by deploying additional social applications in silos. Version 8 provides a core Social HR platform that delivers a unified employee experience by intelligently augmenting or, as appropriate, replacing a company's existing HR applications." Version 8 is an evolutionary advancement of the cfactor SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) platform. It delivers Human Resources practitioners, managers and employees the relevant just-in-time tools, systems and support they require to be more productive in their day-to-day work. Platform innovations include brilliantly redesigned user interfaces, embedded real-time HR Service delivery support and new social media infused talent management tools.

Select Version 8 feature highlights: AskHR on-demand employee support leveraging social media and real-time consultation personalized to the specific process, activity and user.

Comprehensive talent profiles with LinkedIn integration spanning personal, skills, credentials, social contributions, collegial endorsements and employment related information.

Enhanced talent mining capabilities supporting skills identification, finding hidden talent, internal recruitment, staff development.

New broadcast employee communications tools including support for social media, rich media and web content publishing and administration.

"Version 8 is a major step for cfactor's multi-tenant platform," said Shaun Schuler, Senior Vice President of Research & Development for cfactor. "By far the most significant advancement of our platform to date, the new features and increased functionality demonstrate cfactor's focus on delivering exceptional value to our customer and improving the user experience." Since its inception, cfactor has been recognized by organizations like Ernst & Young, the Canadian Innovation Exchange and the Business Development Bank of Canada for its game-changing workforce management technologies. Working primarily with mid-to-large enterprises that represent hundreds of thousands of employees across a variety of industries, cfactor consistently delivers products that are highly configurable, while driving a proven ROI.
