PeopleStreme acknowledged on day of 10th Anniversay as 2011 HCM Cool Vendor by Gartner Research !

In a case of synchronicity, PeopleStreme's Tenth Birthday celebrations have coincided with the recognition of PeopleStreme by global IT research firm, Gartner Research in the "Cool Vendors in Human Capital Management, 2011" report. The company is now the dominant vendor for Performance and Talent Management systems in Australia, frequently competing and winning business against US and European vendors. "We have been successful because of all of you." remarked Peter Vlant, COO, in front of dedicated staff, before cutting the celebratory blue birthday cake. PeopleStreme's first client was signed in 2003 and still supports the company. Brand loyalty has been very high from client organisations whose people practices match their rhetoric. PeopleStreme's demonstration to Gartner included 10 out of a total suite of 22 HCM software modules in the company's Strategic Roadmap. "It is very hard for most analysts to categorise us given both the depth and breadth of our offering in HCM." suggested Lyle Potgieter, PeopleStreme's CEO. "When our executive and management workshops are delivered, most participants realise things are about to change for the better, as their employer is now taking HCM seriously, not just providing lip service." he added. PeopleStreme now sees itself as a global thought leader, demonstrated by having developed 22 software modules in it's integrated Technology Roadmap. Chief Technologist, Dale Smalley commented. "The fact that we are not based in the US or Europe does not mean that we can't lead the world in HCM innovation. We have an aggressive research and development team and conduct world leading research. We expect this to continue for the foreseeable future." he added. Smalley and other key staff have been with PeopleStreme since inception. Gartner recognised this ongoing investment in innovation by recognising PeopleStreme as a Cool Vendor. "In Australia, you need to manage people better because you are in a smaller economy with almost full employment. It's manage them or lose them." concluded Potgieter.
