2015 will be historically the best year ever for CatalystOne Solutions in spite of unstable economy in the Norwegian market. The investment in Sweden three years ago, to build a solid position, has resulted in 96 % year-on-year revenue growth from Swedish customers. Investments in Talent Management solutions is booming along with the Swedish economy.
Important success factors during this phase have been the operational model based on functions instead of national boundaries enabling the use of competence where needed, as well as high level of organisational excellence in the Nordics and in the Research and Development team in India.
Moving forward in the Norwegian market CatalystOne will reinforce the position as enabler of change that many organisations need to go through to handle tougher economic realities. Our easy-to-use product with a very good fit with the needs of this segment combined with our “beyond expectations” level of consulting and support services has proven to a be a lucrative package.
All our three product areas – Competence & Learning, Performance Management and Core HR – are at a high level of product maturity. Two of the main areas to receive the high priority in 2016 will be 1) HR Management System and 2) World-class user experience.
We have seen that an increasing portion of new customers include HR Information Systems (HRIS) in their requirement and CatalystOne ™ HRIS module handles master data in a flexible way. User experience has become one of the most important criteria for vendor selection. It has actually become almost as important as functionality.
We launched our current User Interface (UI) in 2014 and touch-friendliness was emphasised at that time. Since then, smart phones have become the preferred device in private life, used increasingly in work life for accessing enterprise applications. With the use of smart phones, user experience has proven to be vital for adoption of new technology.
During the next quarters, CatalystOne Solutions will provide mobile solutions, make major parts of our application responsive and establish competence and capacity to work continuously on user experience.
