HRsmart Releases Version 11.3 of its Unified Enterprise Talent Management Suite

Driven by a desire to provide its clients with the best solutions and the latest in HR compliance technology

Richardson, TX – November 18, 2010 – HRsmart, winner of the HR Technology Conference vendor shootout and the only HR software company with a fully unified Talent Management Suite, announces the release of Talent Management Enterprise Version 11.3.

Our clients keep challenging us to find ways to identify and retain top quality talent. We responded with several enhancements including user-friendly analytics, social networking and employee development tools. We made these new enhancements easy to use by improving the dashboard experience.

Expansion of our social networking tools enables users to leverage LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and other similar social networking sites as recruiting tools within the solution.

Early client reviews have picked the 9-Box Matrix as the most important and progressive addition. Users can now filter attrition analytics, and avoid the risk of losing additional key personnel, because they are more visible and manageable.

“With over 1300 client implementations in over 30 countries, real-time intelligence gathering and the agility to develop solutions in response to what is learned, is what characterizes thriving organizations,” said Hanny Shehadeh, Chief Product Officer at HRsmart. “With a direct line into product management, our client users continue to consistently drive our product enhancements.”

Below are some of the highlights of the new release. For full details visit or contact to schedule a personal online demonstration.
