PARIS, April 11, 2011 - TalentSoft (www.talentsoft.com), the leader in SaaS-based
Integrated Talent Management, reinforces its position as a market leader
with its inclusion in Gartner's "Magic Quadrant for Employee Performance
Management software"(1). This distinction accompanies the rapid
international deployment of TalentSoft on the Microsoft Windows Azure

"It is a source of pride to everyone at TalentSoft to be
positioned in the 2011 Magic Quadrant by Gartner. This award highlights the
relevance and flexibility of our performance and talent management solution
in responding to the strategic and operational needs of large companies. This
recognition is the result of a constant drive to increase the added value of
our services. This fits well with our overall strategy and underscores our
extremely rapid growth, as highlighted by Gartner, with a turnover that
tripled in 2010." explains Jean-Stéphane Arcis, CEO of TalentSoft.

The TalentSoft integrated EPM solution has been selected for
its capacity to manage talent in an integrated way (recruitment, training
management, compensation management, etc.), and for its functionality, which
is a strong differentiating factor in a rapidly developing market: workforce

The Gartner report notes that: "Delivered via the SaaS model,
TalentSoft is best-suited to multinationals wanting an integrated EPM suite
(and other talent management applications). TalentSoft has some unique
functionality, including Talent Planning support (see "Case Study: Managing
Business Change and Legal Compliance With Talent Management at La Francaise
des Jeux"), differentiating key talent in compensation management."

Gartner audited fifteen Talentsoft clients in the 2nd half of
2010 and notes their satisfaction: "Customers cited ease of use,
configuration and training as product strengths. In addition, they cited
account management and ongoing maintenance and support as strengths."

We should point out that TalentSoft has been cited six times
by Gartner since being named in the "Cool Vendors in Human Capital Software"
report in 2009.
