Human Capital Management Software

Bedford Funding has made several investments in PeopleFluent, a Human Capital Management (HCM) software company offering an integrated suite of products.

Bedford believes that HCM software is becoming increasingly important for large companies, as it allows companies to manage recruiting, compensation planning, succession planning, learning, contingent workers (vendor management), workforce compliance and diversity, workforce planning and analytics, and social interaction. This market segment is consolidating at a rapid place.

Recently, PeopleFluent has expanded its product offering through two new cutting edge technologies:

Colossus is a powerful data integration cloud service that transforms all employee data and third party data into "liquid" data that integrates with PeopleFluent's applications seamlessly. No need for an HR Information System consolidation or custom integrations - with PeopleFluent Colossus, data moves fluidly between all applications from a consolidated data load, streamlining integrations and reducing complexity both during the initial implementation and on an ongoing basis.

Mirror Suite is the solution for today's engagement challenges. Built around people not HR processes, the Mirror Suite integrates innovative video and social technologies into all talent applications. The system delivers a deeply personalized and collaborative experience that drives incredible talent engagement and improved business performance. Bedford's acquisitions in this segment have included:

Sept. 2008  Waltham, MA. Producer of the first integrated suite for talent management. Capabilities included recruiting, performance management, succession planning and compensation planning.
Dec. 2009 Raleigh, NC. Expanded the capabilities of Authoria by adding additional recruiting functionality, as well as vendor management (contingent labor management) and workforce compliance and diversity.
Apr. 2011 Austin, TX. Added leading workforce analytics software to the product palette.
