SANTA MONICA, Calif., December 1, 2011
- Learning and talent management software provider Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ: CSOD) and Sage North America, a leading provider of business management software and services, today announced that the companies have signed a reseller agreement. Sage North America, which supports 3.2 million small and midsized business customers in the U.S. and Canada, will resell Cornerstone's comprehensive, SaaS-based solution in conjunction with its Sage Employer Solutions line of HR management tools.
"Not only are small and midsized businesses showing increased interest in taking an integrated approach to learning and talent management, they also are wanting to invest in cloud solutions to support their efforts,' said David Somers, vice president of alliances and strategy for Cornerstone OnDemand. "Our reseller relationship with Sage North America will help Cornerstone to further expand the availability of our comprehensive SaaS solution and meet this growing need among SMBs. Sage North America has strong brand recognition among small and midsized organizations and has been extremely successful selling HR products to this segment.'
Cornerstone's award-winning integrated talent management suite includes functionality for learning management, performance management, enterprise social networking and extended enterprise engagement. Bringing together these offerings with Sage Employer Solutions' core HR and payroll functionality will allow Sage to provide a complete set of HR management tools for small and midsized organizations to easily manage people throughout the typical employee lifecycle.
"If you invest in your employees to get them better engaged, it can have significant business benefits, such as boosted productivity, higher profitability or increased customer satisfaction,' said Johnny Laurent, vice president and general manager for Sage Employer Solutions. "Combining Cornerstone's talent management software with our core HR and payroll functionality allows us to offer a total HR solution for the SMB market. Because Cornerstone's SaaS solution is organically developed, our customers will be able to enjoy a truly integrated solution versus one that consists of different systems cobbled together.'
