Kallidus recognised as Solid Performer

in the 2021 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Cloud HR.

Fosway 9-Grids™ provide a unique independent analysis of the HR and learning technology markets in Europe, helping HR and learning professionals make informed decisions around their solution needs.

Solutions are ranked in a multi-dimensional model by performance, potential, market presence, total cost of ownership and future trajectories.

Kallidus, multi-award-winning learning, HR, and talent management platform, has been recognised by the 2021 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Cloud HR for the latest addition to their portfolio, Sapling. A highly configurable HRIS with stand-out capability in onboarding, Sapling is recognised as a Solid Performer, with reliability, innovation, and strong customer sentiment at the core.

Stephen Read, CEO of Kallidus, said: “The acquisition of Sapling at the turn of the year was an important strategic move for Kallidus, and it’s great to see the recognition of Sapling’s strengths so quickly. We believe that a strong learning and development culture must be underpinned by a robust employee experience, from recruitment and onboarding to powerful HR processes; the addition of Sapling enables Kallidus’ customers to deliver truly exceptional employee lifecycle experiences at every touchpoint.”

Philip Pyle, Chief Revenue Officer, adds: “Seeing Sapling recognised by Fosway as a Solid Performer is excellent. We have already seen significant demand from new and existing customers, delivering great success to many in streamlining people processes and improving employee experiences. In conjunction with the wider Kallidus product set, Sapling is a real game-changer for HR teams.”

Kallidus has won over 40 industry awards and, following the acquisition of Sapling, has a team of 200 working across offices in the UK, US and Canada. As well as Cloud HR, Kallidus features in Fosway’s 9-Grid™ reports for Learning Systems, Digital Learning, Talent Acquisition and Talent Management, showing the breadth of solutions it offers to help organisations develop and retain their talent.
