viaPeople, Inc. Announces the Release of Succession Planning Express:  A New Software Solution that Significantly Reduces Time of Implementation

Plainsboro, NJ — June 19, 2012 — viaPeople, Inc., the leading provider of performance and talent management software, has released a new and easy-to-use Succession Planning software tool that is specifically targeted at streamlining the implementation of Succession Planning.

Succession Planning Express uses viaPeople’s world class succession planning software and a configurable talent assessment tool to capture critically important background and performance data that is sometimes missing from internal systems. Information such as leadership potential, succession readiness, retention risk, and willingness to relocate, helps facilitate executive decision making on the future of their talent. Once the talent assessment is complete the succession planning software is ready to go.

Building talent within the enterprise has become a critical requirement for corporations as the demand for engaged high potential professionals and leaders increases. “Succession Planning solutions have never been more necessary or in demand as they are today,” said Leah Groehler, Ph.D., Vice President of Consulting Services. “As a result, viaPeople is directly responding to the market’s need with tools that transform this often complicated process into one that quickly produces results” says Groehler.

Succession Planning Express includes a practical and proven methodology and easy-to-implement software, developed by viaPeople’s industrial organizational psychologists. “The introduction of SP Express makes it easy for organizations to have a Succession Planning software solution, up and running within weeks versus months,” adds Groehler.

“viaPeople is a top-notch partner. Their Succession Planning solution allowed us to get our succession planning process up and running very quickly, and they provided superior consulting and implementation support every step of the way. Our executives found the tool to be easy to use. The configurable reporting allowed us to utilize the information at multiple levels in the company and make better talent decisions. The software has transformed the succession planning process at Illumina.” Said Frank Lynch, Senior Manager, Talent Management at Illumina.
