On July 7, 2011, SumTotal announced that it has acquired Accero & CyberShift. We pledge our continued dedication to customers and commitment in further innovating the industry with product advancements and strategic initiatives that deliver greater value to customers.

Increasing labor costs are driving the need for improved global visibility of how organizations manage their workforces. Customers have realized that their talent management processes need to be more efficiently integrated with broader Human Capital Management (HCM) processes in order to enable this visibility and drive workforce effectiveness.

These acquisitions combine SumTotal’s proven leadership in Learning, Talent Management and core HR platform with Accero’s payroll, and benefits, and CyberShift’s best-in-class workforce management and expense solution. This further advances and accelerates SumTotal’s vision and expands Talent Management to additional mission critical processes across the broader strategic HCM market. SumTotal now offers the industry’s broadest and deepest HCM product capabilities with expanded global services and support infrastructure.
