We particularly like Enwisen&rsquo;s software-as-a-service model &mdash; they were up and running quickly and maintain the HR and benefits data on the site. Enwisen has helped us effect a true cultural change in the way we communicate with our full-time and seasonal workforce.&rdquo; <br /><br />&ldquo;Two-thousand seven was a very exciting year for Enwisen,&rdquo; said Wally Smith, Enwisen&rsquo;s CEO. &ldquo;We welcomed 80 new customers &mdash; and more than 600,000 end-user employees &mdash; to our solutions, while also introducing many innovations to our AnswerSource suite, such as our new enhanced on-boarding module. Additionally, we experienced organic growth of more than 60 percent while still maintaining profitability. As our momentum continues with a dynamic start to 2008, it is further proof that we have the right product, at the right time and at the right price point to meet employers&rsquo; needs to leverage innovative communications technology to engage an Internet-age workforce.&rdquo;<br /><br />Industry analysts agree. James Holincheck, senior research vice president for Gartner, commented, &ldquo;Now that employee, manager and benefits self-service solutions have reached mainstream adoption, employers are looking for ways to make them more effective. By integrating transactional self-service applications with on-demand HR communications applications, companies can achieve true self-service. This occurs when employees are able to get the information they need within the context of their day-to-day work/life transactions.&rdquo; <br />
