Martin Engineering Chooses SumTotal Talent Expansion™ Suite to Develop and Retain Employees

Global Manufacturing Company Expands use of SumTotal Solutions; adds SumTotal Talent to Empower Employees for Business Success

Gainesville, Fla.–October 28, 2013– SumTotal® Systems, LLC,  the largest independent provider of integrated HR solutions, today announced that Martin Engineering selected SumTotal Talent: Performance to expand its employee development program, improve retention and drive business growth.

Martin Engineering, the world leader in bulk-materials handling, has been using SumTotal Learn solution to deliver training to employees and across its extended enterprise to customers and distributors. The company recently expanded its use of SumTotal’s applications, adding SumTotal Talent to support its strategic objectives related to employee empowerment.

„As a global organization, we discovered that there are not a lot of tools out there that fit our needs. SumTotal’s solutions offered us an opportunity to have an HR and performance system with capabilities that go beyond other options on the market,” said Kathy Erdmann, Martin Engineering corporate and international human resources lead. “These tools will help us further engage our workforce, identify and develop future leaders, and create the structure for a pay-for-performance culture.”

Erdmann said they selected SumTotal, in part, for the robust and easy reporting, intuitive user interface, and the benefit of getting learning and talent solutions from a single vendor.

“We are excited that Martin Engineering has again selected SumTotal for its talent expansion programs. The company has been a valued customer for years, and we look forward to continuing that relationship and working with them to address their business needs,” said Holly Rollo, SumTotal chief marketing officer.
