SuccessFactors Accelerates Growth in Patient Care: Spectrum Health Selects Business Execution Software

SuccessFactors BizX to be Deployed to 16,000 Users at 7 Hospitals and 140 Service Sites

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Today, SuccessFactors, Inc. (Nasdaq: SFSF) announced that Spectrum Health, a not-for-profit, integrated health system, has partnered with SuccessFactors' Business Execution (BizX) Suite to identify and cultivate top talent and align strategic decisions across its organization to improve overall business performance.

Spectrum Health's subsidiaries include seven hospitals, a health plan and over 140 service sites, as well as physician practices that serve the western Michigan area. Recognized as one of US News and World Report's Best Hospitals in America and with three Magnet hospitals in the system, Spectrum Health employs 16,000 employees across all of its networks.

In order to push forward its legacy of success, Spectrum Health has empowered its business leaders with SuccessFactors' solutions so they can identify and cultivate top talent, and in turn, the overall performance of the company. By continuing to engage its workforce and developing top employees, Spectrum Health will use SuccessFactors Performance Management, Goal Management, 360 Degree Reviews and Stack Ranker to continue to set the bar in patient care and position their organization for lasting success.

Further, SuccessFactors will replace a combination of existing systems, such as Halogen Software. SuccessFactors' tightly-integrated suite of modules will simplify Spectrum's infrastructure by running just the BizX platform across the entire network.

"We didn't need a product to advance what we were doing, we needed a partner to help us evolve. SuccessFactors is that partner," said Karen Guzicki, organizational development consultant, Spectrum Health. "We're looking forward to working hand-in-hand with SuccessFactors to both continue our first-class patient care and evolve our daily business operations across the entire network."

"Spectrum Health is one of the leading healthcare groups in the country, and it's no surprise that their success is largely due to their ability to identify and develop top talent throughout the years," said Scott Swisher, vice president, healthcare, SuccessFactors. "With BizX, we've armed Spectrum Health with the tools to improve business performance starting with the most important resource they have – their people."
