SilkRoad technology, inc., a leading provider of talent management solutions, announced today the company was named the winner of the June 2010 HRtechnology Ironman. SilkRoad’s market leading Life Suite product OpenHire competed in the Mid-Market Talent Acquisition Systems Ironman competition on June 18th.

The competition is the latest in HRchitect’s educational webinar series and has software vendors compete against one another to prove who can “swim better,” “bike stronger” and “run faster.” HRchitect recently developed the series of webinars as a way to educate consumers on the human resource technology choices available.

In these fast-paced web events, vendors compete head-to-head in each category. Spectators then vote after each portion and the vendor with the most total votes receives the medal and is named HRtechnology Ironman. In the competition vendors must prove their advantages over the competition in each category including:

Swimming – In this category vendors discuss company history, overview, specific identity, financial viability, marquee clients and leadership team.

Biking – During the biking portion the vendors showcase their product’s functionality, technology/integration, usability and configurability.

Running – In this segment of the competition the vendors discuss the key differentiators of their solution and their company.

Media Interviews – Finally, the vendor is judged based on answers to questions from the audience.

At the conclusion of the competition, SilkRoad technology was voted the winner and named HRtechnology Ironman.

“We enjoyed participating in the webinar and are honored the audience selected us as the Ironman winner,” said Thomas Boyle, Director of Product Strategy, SilkRoad technology. “We always welcome any opportunity to show what sets our products and company apart from other vendors.”

SilkRoad provides Web-based talent management solutions, including OpenHire, a market-leading recruiting management solution, RedCarpet, onboarding and life events management solution, WingSpan for flexible employee performance management, GreenLight for learning management, Eprise for employee intranets and content management and HeartBeat for core HR.
