Gartner Names PeopleDoc a 2014 Cool Vendor in Human Capital Management Software

PeopleDoc Helps Global & Distributed HR Operations Be More Efficient and Compliant

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 20, 2014) - PeopleDoc, a leading provider of Global HR Governance solutions that unify the HR operations of large companies, announced today that it has been named a Cool Vendor by Gartner in their new report "Cool Vendors in Human Capital Management Software, 2014, published May 2, 2014." The report, authored by Gartner analysts Yvette Cameron, Ron Hanscome (both Research Directors) and Jeff Freyermuth a Principle Research Analyst states that "HR and HR IT leaders should look beyond their traditional vendors for innovations in human capital management software." 

The report went on to say, "Another ongoing challenge, especially for large or global organizations, is HR document management; the volumes of records as well as the global compliance and access considerations demand a new approach in today's digital economy."

News of People Doc's inclusion in the Gartner report comes on the heels of announcing $17.5M in funding last week from Accel Partners and just a few months after the company entered the US market by opening a New York City and Boston office in late 2013.

PeopleDoc (known today in Europe as Novapost) has already established European market leadership in the cloud-based HR document management space -- doubling its revenue every year since being founded in 2010 and having a powerful customer base of over 150 brand names such as Starbucks, Total, Dow Chemical, Motorola and more.

PeopleDoc is a pioneer in HR digitalization, providing a cloud-based SaaS platform that gives large companies more global HR control with reduced administrative costs. PeopleDoc's HR platform features a suite of complementary products centered on its digital file management system, which allows HR departments and organizations to organize, access, and track their employee and policy information. By federating disparate systems, paper, and processes, PeopleDoc creates secure master employee files that can then be accessed easily by authorized users. 

The platform extends to digital payroll, e-signature and case management to keep the HR workflow simple and online. With a no-training-required interface and cloud implementation, large companies quickly realize ROI from savings in paper-related and administrative costs. PeopleDoc customers are then able to enforce both global and local HR compliance, plus gain realtime disaster recovery.

"We are honored to be named by Gartner as a Cool Vendor in this new report. We believe that this will help raise visibility on the critical need for global HR information governance along with other HCM needs and trends," said PeopleDoc CEO & Co-Founder Jonathan Benhamou. "Leveraging our knowledge and experience with the rigorous compliance and security requirements in Europe, we bring valuable expertise to all large companies that need to control and use HR information more efficiently."

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures.

It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...

Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
