Applied Big Data solutions developer recognized for product excellence and strong customer base


VANCOUVER, BC and SAN JOSE, CA – Visier, the innovation leader in workforce analytics and planning, announced today it has been named as one of the Hot 100 Best Privately Held Software Companies by investment banking firm JMP Securities. Companies on the “Hot 100” list are selected each year based on multiple criteria, including products and services, quality of leadership, customers and market potential.

“We are honored that a leading investment banking firm has recognized our dedication to product innovation and customer success,” says John Schwarz, Co-Founder and CEO of Visier. “We have seen incredible growth so far, and we are just getting started on our journey to fundamentally changing the way organizations obtain strategic insights and optimize their business plans.”

With Visier’s cloud solutions, organizations can leverage data from unlimited sources to predict how workforce behaviors (such as future employee recruitment, promotion, and turnover patterns) will change, and use this insight to create, analyze, and collaborate on plans to optimize the workforce. The results include better workforce productivity and performance, more effective recruitment and retention, and significant bottom line savings.

With over 2 million customer employee records in the cloud and counting, accelerated growth is seeing Visier’s annualized revenue tripling. The company serves a rapidly growing number of the world’s top brands, including ConAgra Foods, Exelon, McGraw Hill Financial, Hyatt, Nissan, and Time Inc.
