Charlotte, NC — October 12, 2021

On the heels of its best-ever attended customer conference and most-successful HR Tech and NAPEO appearances to date, isolved has been named a Leader in human capital management (HCM) technology for the SMB market (up to 500 employees) by independent analyst firm NelsonHall. A first-time entrant into the highly regarded NEAT Vendor Evaluation, isolved’s Leader position reflects its ability to meet future market requirements as well as deliver immediate benefits to its HCM technology customers in the SMB market. For the mid/large market (above 500 employees) – isolved’s fastest-growing segment – isolved was named an Innovator.


NelsonHall identified numerous isolved strengths including its comprehensive, cloud-native HCM platform, isolved People Cloud, for its functionality spanning the entire employee lifecycle. NelsonHall further recognized isolved for its, “Strong vision, commitment and ongoing investments to advance its HCM technology innovation.”


These highlighted strengths and others were the reasons isolved was placed highly on the “ability to meet future client requirements” axis – determined by scores in service innovation culture, level of investments and market momentum. The “ability to deliver immediate benefit” criteria are based on core modules, talent modules, cross-platform features, client presence and benefits achieved.


“At the end of the day, isolved is about delivering customers everything they need to be successful in supporting their businesses HCM processes,” said James Norwood, chief marketing and strategy officer. “Our goal is to be easy to use, to deliver rapid value to business leaders and their organization, and to always be there for them, not just as their business grows, but whenever they need us. This is why it’s particularly rewarding to be recognized by NelsonHall as a Leader ready to deliver value today and meet client requirements tomorrow.”


In addition to isolved software, isolved was also recognized for its ability to offer both HCM technology and managed human resources (HR) services (e.g., payroll, benefits, compliance, tax), and for its deep Network of channel partners (nearly 2,000 partner firms) to support further platform adoption and client services.


“isolved has been named a Leader for its continued innovation, platform maturity and client development,” said Pete Tiliakos, HR technology & services research director at NelsonHall. “When speaking with isolved clients, I’ve been impressed by their collective confidence in isolved, its executive leadership team and the technology itself.”
