Benchmarking powered by the ADP DataCloud is a revolutionary replacement to the time-intensive survey process. It takes a unique, big-data-driven approach to deliver trusted Human Capital Management benchmarks that are aggregated and anonymized from 30 million employees in ADP's client base. Benchmarking data can be filtered by location, industry, company size and by a specific job (including levels) to provide detailed comparisons that allow you to fine-tune workforce strategy and more effectively plan for upcoming budget cycles.

Halogen Software
Halogen's new TalentSpace mobile app makes it easy to capture, share and request feedback anytime, anywhere using an iPhone or Android phone. Build skills at delivering real-time feedback using the app's suggested tips and comments. Instantly capture and include rich content from email, pictures, articles and more when sending feedback to a colleague. Get automatic notifications when receiving new feedback. Quickly find and connect with colleagues across the entire organization and make sharing feedback and recognition part of the daily routine.

Infor will showcase Infor Learning Optimization, the HCM industry's first solution for creating personalized learning plans that specifically address behavioral fit opportunities against employees' current and potential future roles. Every employee's behaviors are different, and with personalized learning and coaching, employees can optimize their performance by understanding how their behavioral preferences can be leveraged for success in a role. Attendees will see how Infor Learning Optimization uses a data-driven approach that eliminates guesswork to give managers and employees the right tools they need to improve individual performance, while simultaneously reducing the costs of indiscriminate, "gut feel"-based learning plans.

SAP SuccessFactors
Delivered as part of SAP SuccessFactors Performance & Goals, Continuous Performance Management solves many of the frequently cited issues of performance management initiatives by facilitating ongoing check-ins between employees and managers to ensure activities, accomplishments and goals stay on track throughout the year. The app provides managers a simple way to provide continuous feedback and coaching to help employees constantly grow in their roles and drive ongoing improvements in performance. Employees stay motivated and engaged to perform at their best.

Ultimate Software
UltiPro's Leadership Actions is a new feature that extends traditional performance management into an ongoing coaching and development tool, focused on developing leaders as much as it is about developing and evaluating employees. UltiPro Leadership Actions present managers with over 60 recommended actions organized into 16 coaching categories to guide them to take action and engage with their employees, even when the interaction might be difficult. The actions are triggered by predictive analytics to measure tolerances being surpassed, but are also available as an ongoing manager-development tool.

Attendees can learn more about these solutions and more at the conference Expo, during which more than 400 companies will exhibit their solutions and address attendees' most challenging questions. In addition, for the second consecutive year, the Expo will include a Startup Pavilion, featuring the most promising companies to emerge in the HR technology space.
