CRG emPerform and Synerion Join Forces to Provide Complete Human Resource Technology

Corporate Renaissance Group (CRGroup), a global firm that specializes in improving enterprise performance through innovative technology-driven solutions, and Synerion, a Mississauga-based leading workforce management (WFM) solutions vendor, announced today that they have joined forces to provide complete HR technology solutions. This strategic partnership will leverage the industry-leading capabilities of emPerform(TM), CRGroup’s award-winning employee performance management suite, and the scalable workforce management solutions offered by Synerion. This alliance aims to provide integrated performance and human capital management platforms for effective planning, monitoring, scheduling and assessment of talent and performance.

As the umbrella of necessary HR technology continues to grow, organizations are coming to the realization that their unique needs cannot be accommodated by wider one-size-fits all solutions. As such, there is a need to select dedicated technologies to suit each HR function. The challenge is locating compatible solutions that are capable of uninterrupted data transfer and integration with one-another in order to streamline HR processes. The emPerform and Synerion partnership will result in a seamless data syncing process between both systems. The result is an uninterrupted flow for initiating, delivering and tracking employee performance and feedback against scheduled time and development initiatives, eliminating any requirement for duplicate data entry when staff information is added or changed.

“This partnership brings two leading solutions together. We are thrilled to be able to offer Synerion’s workforce management solutions to accompany the functionality already present in emPerform,” said Kris Kyritzopoulos, Director of Business Development & Partner Relations for emPerform. “We were looking for a human capital management technology partner that shared the same core values and customer centric culture as we do and Synerion is a great fit. This partnership will allow both companies to focus on what they do best while providing customers with complementary, proven technology to drive higher employee performance”.

“Synerion is eager to contoinue to bring value to its customers. We are delighted with the shared values and vision with CRG and the opportunity to refer their services to our customers.” Said Paolo Gilfillan, Director of Sales and Marketing for Synerion Inc.
