Business Execution software company to acquire Next Generation technology provider

Business execution cloud-based SaaS software company, SuccessFactors, Inc., recently made an agreement with the leading learning management system (LMS) provider, Plateau.

This recent acquisition forms a symbiotic combination with SuccessFactors’ acquisition of social video mobile learning provider, Jambok and will additionally enable customers to further increase employee development and business execution by implementing a comprehensive social and traditional learning strategy. This strategy includes evangelising internal experts, utilising easy-to-use video creation and sharing tools, as well as managing, developing, and deploying online, instructor-led and self-study training.

The Founder and CEO of SuccessFactors, Lars Dalgaard, said, “Plateau has a long history of delivering innovation and has consistently been recognised in the top 1 or 2 position as a leader in LMS from analysts during the last couple of years, including Forrester, Gartner, IDC and Bersin & Associates. With more than 15 million combined users, and the biggest R&D budget and largest domain expertise in the HCM cloud-based SaaS industry, we can compete more effectively with some of the incumbent HCM vendors’ total suite, and continue to surprise and excite customers with the next decade of innovations.”

A recent research report entitled ‘The Link Between Strategic Alignment and Staff Productivity’, commissioned by SuccessFactors, also highlights the company’s dedication to its clients. The report identifies three critical areas for determining failure or success in this area: Alignment & Collaboration, Performance & Productivity, and Growth & Talent.

SuccessFactors’ business research report shows that only twelve percent of organisations surveyed possess an IT system that delivers the information needed for business management and execution. In comparison, nearly three out of four respondents whose companies use collaborative technologies, such as SuccessFactors’ CubeTree, feel their organisation communicates business strategy ‘well’ or ‘very well’.

The business execution software company is also providing organisations with the opportunity to generate a personalised performance and alignment report. The individualised report can be created by answering a series of simple multiple choice questions. This then provides the organisation with both an Alignment & Collaboration and a Performance & Productivity score to help achieve business goals and objectives.
