Pittsburgh, PA, November 09, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- TOWER EPM Software, a leader in providing talent management software solutions to hospitals and health systems throughout the United States, and Pearson’s Talent Assessment Group, announced an integration partnership between the two applications. The integration will streamline the talent assessment and performance review process as it relates to an organization’s talent management process.
The direct connection between TOWER EPM software and Pearson's TalentLens solutions allows hospitals and health systems to quickly access talent assessment content, tests, and talent management applications from a single portal designed to help them retain, grow, and identify the top talent within their own organization.
Talent management software is one of the fastest growing segments of the software industry, working to meet the demand to incorporate an increasingly large subset of an organization’s functions into one software application. This trend to combine applications into one talent management software suite benefits companies by providing one portal for all employee applications, and encourages employees to take a more active role in their personal growth within the company.
"I am glad to have Pearson’s TalentLens solutions become available to all of our clients and future clients. We strive to provide our clients with the tools and services that will allow them to operate in highly efficient manner in order to retain, identify and help coach their top talent. This partnership is just another example of this goal becoming a reality," said John Hess, Vice President of TOWER EPM Software.
For companies that are trying to stretch budgets and have overworked IT departments, integrating more applications into one solution makes financial sense as well. By reducing implementation costs, time spent looking at multiple vendors, and time training employees on multiple solutions, organizations are seeing a return on their investments sooner. Employees are able to engage in the software earlier, and develop a better understanding of the benefits offered by the software.
Within the healthcare industry in particular, Talent Assessment and Management is taking on an increasingly important role as the shortage of trained healthcare workers increases. A well implemented Talent Management suite is being seen as an indispensable tool for recruiting, retaining, and promoting the best workforce available.
“The need for assessments in the healthcare industry has grown tremendously and we’re excited to integrate our TalentLens solutions with the only healthcare specific talent management software available,” said Nathan Green, General Manager, Talent Assessment, Pearson. “Our goal is to help organizations increase workforce performance with our selection and development tools and aligning ourselves with TOWER EPM, who truly understands the specific needs of healthcare companies, provides us with greater strength and knowledge as we continue to expand in this market.”
The integration is part of the TOWER EPM software suite. TOWER EPM will offer the integration in the current version of its software, as well as all future releases. The integration will be offered as an additional module through TOWER EPM.
