GAINESVILLE, Fla., Nov. 26, 2012SumTotal® Systems, LLC, a global leader in Strategic Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, earned the Best International Business of the Year award from the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce. This is the second year in a row the chamber has honored SumTotal. Last year, the company won the “Gainesville to the World” award for bringing a global business presence to the city.

SumTotal, which is headquartered in Gainesville, has 17 offices around the globe. The company is the world’s largest independent, dedicated strategic HCM solutions provider, with solutions deployed in more than 160 countries in over 30 languages, and a customer base that includes more than half of the Fortune 500 companies.

Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Tim Giuliani said, “SumTotal is a tremendous asset to our business community. The company represents the high-caliber global organization that is making the Gainesville area a hot spot for technological innovation and economic growth.”

SumTotal has been rapidly expanding its global presence. In the past year alone, the company surpassed 3,500 customers and 45 million users worldwide, and opened offices in Shanghai, Munich, and a new regional headquarters in Redding, U.K., for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. In March, SumTotal released its fully integrated Strategic HCM suite, which provides comprehensive support for learning management, talent management, workforce management, expense management, payroll and benefits.

“We have seen tremendous growth as a company this year, and part of our success can be attributed to having our headquarters in Gainesville. It is a great city that provides our employees with a high quality of life and our company access to a strong talent pool from the University of Florida, Santa Fe College, and surrounding communities,” SumTotal CEO John Borgerding said. “We are proud to have received this honor from our fellow community leaders.”
