SumTotal Recognized for Significant Contributions to Human Resources Information Management

Gainesville, Fla. – July 24, 2013 SumTotal® Systems, LLC, the only human resources solution provider that helps organizations discover, develop and unleash the hidden potential within their workforce, today announced that it won the International Association for Human Resource Information Management’s coveted IHRIM Partners Award.

IHRIM presents the award annually to organizations that have made significant contributions to the practice of human resources information management and to supporting the mission and goals of the association.

“The 2013 Award recipients recognize those that have served as the utmost best in HRIS and HRMS products and services across a broad array of sectors,” said Lynne Mealy, IHRIM president and CEO, in a recent news release. “The awards and their winners are a testament to the real value that our community brings to the c-suite.”

Founded in 1985 as a learning management software provider, SumTotal is now recognized by industry experts and analysts as a market leader and the largest independent provider of integrated HR solutions. With over 45 million users, 17 million in the cloud, and over 3,500 customers worldwide, the company provides deep domain expertise for complex global deployments and also helps small, high-growth companies scale.

“We are honored to receive IHRIM’s Partners Award,” SumTotal Chief Marketing Officer Holly Rollo said. “Our company focuses exclusively on HR and has nearly 30 years of experience in helping our customers create great places to work. This award underscores our commitment to HR innovation and offering people-centered Talent Expansion™ applications that unlock employees’ talent and help them become better at what they do, while they’re doing it.”
