Softscape Receives ''Strong Positive'' in 2005 Employee Performance Management Report by Industry Leading Analyst Firm

WAYLAND, Mass. --(Business Wire)-- Sept. 9, 2005 -- Softscape, an industry leader in strategic people management technology and services, today announced that Softscape received the highest rating of "Strong Positive" in Gartner's 2005 MarketScope for Employee Performance Management (EPM) Software(1). The Gartner "Strong Positive" rating is only provided to a vendor who is considered a solid provider of strategic products, services or solutions. Gartner recommends that existing customers continue investments while potential customers consider the vendor a strong strategic choice.

According to the Gartner report: "EPM is an important linchpin in talent management applications. EPM and its integration with other talent management applications are key to gaining business value."

"Softscape shares Gartner's view in the report that EPM and its integration with other talent management applications are key for gaining business value," said Dave Watkins, co-founder and CEO, Softscape. "It has been our vision since we launched 11 years ago that driving value requires not only an integrated HCM strategy, but a single platform that enables the key linkages between all strategic HR processes. These connections extend beyond performance management to include workforce planning, talent acquisition, learning and development, succession planning, compensation management, workforce collaboration, knowledge sharing, and in-depth business reporting and analytics."

Gartner continues in the MarketScope: "Most companies want to increase the productivity of their workforces. EPM solutions are important enablers to help ensure that employees have the right competencies to do their work and spend their energies on the right activities."
