GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- January 3, 2013

SumTotal® Systems, LLC, a global leader in Strategic Human Capital Management
(HCM) solutions, today announced it was the recipient of three “Excellence in
Technology” awards from analyst Brandon Hall Group, Inc.

SumTotal earned honors in three categories:

  *Best Advance in Creating an Integrated Talent Management Platform
  *Best Advance in Workforce Analytics and Planning Technology
  *Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Small- and Medium-Sized
    Businesses (SMB)

SumTotal was among two companies recognized for integrated talent management,
earning a silver award. It was recognized for workforce analytics and planning
and earned a bronze award. Brandon Hall recognized six companies for advances
in SMB learning management, awarding SumTotal a bronze.

According to a news release from Brandon Hall, a panel of veteran, independent
senior industry experts and Brandon Hall’s senior analysts and executive
leadership evaluated the entries based upon the following criteria:

  *Product: What was the product’s breakthrough innovation?
  *Unique differentiators: What makes the product unique and how does it
    differ from any competing products?
  *Value proposition: What problem does the product solve and/or what need
    does this product address?
  *Measurable results: What are the benefits customers can expect to
    experience as a result of using this product?

“It is our honor to recognize this year’s award winners, who exemplify the
commitment to innovation and excellence that drives growth and over-the-top
business results,” said Mike Cooke, Brandon Hall CEO.

Among the key differentiators was SumTotal’s end-to-end strategic HCM
platform, which the company released in March. It provides an integrated
solution across learning management, talent management, workforce management,
core HR, payroll and expense management and enables customers to manage HR
processes across the full employee lifecycle with the flexibility to deploy
either in the Cloud or on-premise.

“We have worked tirelessly to provide our customers with best-in-class
solutions that expand their visibility into their workforce, power better
business decisions, and drive growth,” SumTotal CEO John Borgerding said. “We
are honored to receive recognition for these efforts from Brandon Hall and
remained committed to continuous innovation.”
