SumTotal Ranked a Top 10 Vendor in Apps Run The World’s HCM Top 500 Market Report

SumTotal recognized for its flexible and comprehensive talent development solution

BOSTON, MA, February 07, 2018 – SumTotal Systems, a Skillsoft Group company offering the world’s only learning, talent, and workforce management unified solution, today announced that it ranked ninth in Apps Run The World’s HCM Top 500 Market Report for the second consecutive year. Apps Run The World determines the rankings based on 2011-2016 HCM Software revenues of more than 3,000 enterprise applications vendors in its proprietary database.

SumTotal achieved its high ranking by virtue of its annual revenue across 21 vertical industries and 22 HR software markets, including Core HR, Talent Acquisition and Workforce Management. The company’s ranking is also related to bringing its talent, learning, recruitment, and workforce management into one platform and adding several innovative new features to its Talent Expansion Suite in 2017.

The Talent Expansion Suite offers an easy-to-use, end-to-end user experience from applicants to recruiters, ensuring the right candidates are hired. Employees and administrators using the solution can now aggregate content across third-party platforms and MOOCs. The support for the Experience API (xAPI) specification along with an embedded Learning Record Store (LRS) further augments the Talent Suite enterprise learning ecosystem by tracking and reporting on learning experiences that happen across disparate learning content sources. SumTotal also recently added gamification elements to the Suite to engage the modern worker, increase employee development and foster connections with peers in fun, competitive environments. Additional updates include a redesigned recruiting solution featuring smartphone-optimized career sites with apply capability, candidate matching and automated and intelligent interview tools.

“We are proud that Apps Run The World recognized SumTotal Systems for the second consecutive year as a top 10 HCM software vendor,“ said Bill Donoghue, chairman and CEO of the Skillsoft Group. “We’re focused on delivering solutions that help leaders solve workforce issues, improve engagement and enhance the overall employee experience. Our recent enhancements to the Talent Expansion Suite reinforce our commitment to nurture and help all employees chart an individualized path for their development that will impact business performance.”

“SumTotal has shown an uncanny ability to sustain its core values in many segments of the HCM market, while helping customers formulate a Cloud-first strategy for eLearning, talent management and Core HR,” said Albert Pang, president of Apps Run The World. “In 2018, I expect SumTotal to continue scaling out its product portfolio across different verticals and countries, boosting its market share along the way.”

Apps Run The World also ranked SumTotal Systems number 39 in its Cloud Top 500 and number 85 in its Apps Top 500.
