Corporate Renaissance Group and PDS Join Forces to Fulfill Market Demand for Advanced Employee Performance Management and HRMS Solutions


Ottawa, Canada and Blue Bell, PA - March 31, 2016: Corporate Renaissance Group (a member of the Microsoft® Partner Network), a leading provider of services and technology for better business management, and PDS®, a leading developer of human resources, benefits, recruiting and payroll systems, today announced that the companies have formed a strategic alliance to provide advanced employee performance management and HRMS solutions.


As part of the alliance, Corporate Renaissance Group (CRGroup) and PDS will collaborate on new business opportunities for Vista HRMS®, PDS’ extensive software suite for human resources, benefits, recruiting, and payroll and CRGroup’s all-inclusive employee performance management software, CRG emPerform. Together, the solutions will deliver end-to-end automation and streamline human resources management and employee performance management tasks.


“We are very excited to partner with PDS,” said Dr. Vijay Jog, President and CEO of CRGroup. “Both emPerform and Vista HRMS offer the flexibility, rich feature-set, cloud and on-premise deployment options, and affordable pricing model that the market demands. We look forward to bringing the benefits of both systems to our current customers as well as our network in the Microsoft® Dynamics™ channel where there is a growing need to augment their Dynamics ERP systems by integrating critical HR and employee performance data.”


“This is a win-win relationship for both PDS and CRGroup, as well as for the customers of both companies,” said Charles Jefferies, President and CEO at PDS.  “Although we offer performance management functionality in Vista HRMS, now we can provide more advanced capabilities through the powerful CRG emPerform solution.  Through this alliance, CRGroup customers can also garner the full functionality of our HRMS, enabling organizations to more easily and effectively manage their HR and related operations.”


Both Vista HRMS and CRG emPerform are available as either hosted or on-premise systems and offer mid-market organizations the security and flexibility to synchronize HR data across multiple locations and countries.
