It's been 4-5 years since our last RFP but at the time we considered Halogen, Lawson Talent Management, Success Factors and Taleo. Some of those vendors were out of the running if they did not offer both a Performance Manager and an Applicant Tracking system. We ideally wanted one vendor who could do both well but if we didn't find one, we would have been willing to look for two vendors. Luckily HealthcareSource does both and does them well. In addition they are expanding their product line and growing. In some cases for those other vendors, the product looked good but when speaking to references their products or customer support didn't stack up. In one case, I had the chance to explore Taleo as a hospital we acquired had in in use. I found it very user friendly but a lot of things just didn't work as advertised. Reporting was very cumbersome as well. The Lawson product was still not fully developed so we couldn't really consider it during our selection process as it just wasn't ready.
