GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- December 06, 2012

SumTotal® Systems, LLC, a global leader in Strategic Human Capital Management
(HCM) solutions, today announced it had been named a leader in HCM solutions
by Nucleus Research and a market share leader in Talent Management by Bersin &
Associates.

In its “Technology Value Matrix – Second Half 2012: Human Capital Management”
report, Nucleus Research identified vendors as HCM leaders if they have
invested in both functionality and usability features most likely to deliver
the greatest initial return on investment and long-term value. The firm based
usability and functionality scores on factors such as application
intuitiveness, availability of role-based interfaces, productivity impact,
breadth and repeatability of functionality, and investment in innovative
functionality outside of the core that delivers additional benefits.

“SumTotal offers a complete range of modules for HCM, including HR, payroll
and benefits, talent management and workforce management. It also provides
social collaboration functionality that most HCM vendors don’t have and an
e-commerce solution for learning that is quite unique in the HCM space,” said
Gabriel Gheorghiu, principal analyst at Nucleus Research.

The report also highlighted SumTotal’s Strategic Workforce Analytics, which
uses an integrated data warehouse to manage data and display it in
configurable dashboards, and the company’s flexible deployment options:
on-premise, hosted and SaaS.

“SumTotal continues to invest in providing innovative solutions and services,
and we are dedicated to helping our customers achieve the results and return
on investments they need to be successful,” SumTotal CEO John Borgerding said.
“We are happy to be recognized by Nucleus Research as a leader in HCM and
remain committed to finding new ways to deliver value to our customers.”

Bersin & Associates’ “The Market for Talent Management Systems 2013” report
indicated that the talent management suite software market will grow by an
estimated 22% in 2012, reaching more than $4 billion, not including core HRMS
and payroll software, in 2013 and 2014. The report listed SumTotal as a
revenue market share leader, behind ERP providers Oracle and SAP. It also
placed SumTotal in the “fast growth” category, which includes companies with
15%-40% annual growth.

“Our customers understand the value in finding a partner, like SumTotal, that
is focused on human capital management,” Borgerding said. “We have seen
tremendous growth in the last year and look forward to continuing that
momentum into 2013 to remain a market leader.”
