GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- February 12, 2013

SumTotal Systems, LLC, today announced that registration is open for
TotalConnection 2013, the company’s annual customer conference, which will be
held April 8-11 at the Hilton Orlando. This year’s conference will provide an
interactive forum where attendees can engage with industry experts and peers
to explore the latest trends, solutions, best practices and industry secrets
for expanding and maximizing employee talent.

“Attracting, developing, engaging and retaining good employees consistently
ranks as a top business priority among CEOs, CIOs and HR leaders, yet many
companies continue to struggle to meet their talent management goals using
human capital management systems based on a supply-chain philosophy,” said
Holly Rollo, SumTotal chief marketing officer. “We think it’s time for a new
approach that gives organizations the power to unlock valuable HR intelligence
and expand talent immediately and easily without restriction on devices,
deployment options or proprietary architecture. This year’s TotalConnection
theme is ’Set Your Talent Free,’ and every aspect of the event will focus on
new ideas to help customers and their employees break down boundaries in
achieving organizational and personal success.”

Attendees will learn how to take their talent management strategies to the
next level by replacing transactional, system-centric HRMSs with
people-focused talent management solutions that provide actionable information
and insights about employees. Supporting this focus, the conference will
feature a wide range of sessions focused across all aspects of talent
management, including learning management, workforce management, workforce
analytics, performance management, talent management, payroll, mobile and
social technologies and integration. In addition to sessions featuring
real-world case studies led by both SumTotal customers and solution experts,
attendees will have access to hands-on learning labs and 1:1 meetings with
SumTotal experts.
