Cornerstone OnDemand Client to Discuss the Benefits of SaaS-Based Technology Solutions at SaaS/Gov 2010

Cleveland Airport System’s Acting Chief of Administration & Performance Management to speak on panel examining SaaS solutions from a government user’s perspective

Santa Monica, Calif., March 31 2010 Cornerstone OnDemand Inc., the leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based learning and talent management solutions, today announced that Jeanette Saunders, Acting Chief of Administration & Performance Management for Cleveland Airport System, is among the speakers at next week’s SaaS/Gov 2010 conference, to be held Monday, April 5 at The Westin in Washington D.C.  During the panel, titled “Cloud Computing from a Government User's Perspective,” Saunders will share insight into the decision to implement Cornerstone’s secure, on-demand solution to manage and develop Cleveland Hopkins International Airport’s 500 employees, as well as manage training records for the more than 10,000 airline employees that pass through its facilities. 

Owned and operated by the City of Cleveland, the Airport established its first-ever Division of Administration in 2007, which was charged with increasing the training and development of its workforce and aligning these efforts with performance management initiatives.  With varying regulatory and certification compliance requirements, as well as a strategic push to increase workforce involvement in training opportunities, the Airport sought to invest in a technology solution to support its initiatives.  Requirements included the ability to provide employees with easy and convenient self-service learning, automation of records management and real-time reporting, and an integrated solution employee performance management.  After conducting a thorough vendor search, the Airport chose Cornerstone’s comprehensive software suite – including solutions for onboarding, learning management and employee performance management

“We looked at both on-premise and SaaS solutions to support our talent management needs, but the benefits of an on-demand solution are far more compelling,” said Saunders.  “SaaS requires minimal IT support, allows us to continually benefit from new features and updates, and provides convenient anytime, anywhere access for our employees.  Cornerstone’s reputation among industry analysts as the universal leader in SaaS-based learning and talent management solutions, as well as the depth and breadth of its features, made it the top choice to help us succeed with our efforts.”

Public sector organizations at the local, state and federal level comprise the largest employment sector in the U.S. and in many countries around the world, making the development and retention of this vital talent pool both critical and challenging.

“An agency’s ability to strengthen its workforce is far more likely to succeed when deploying SaaS-based talent management solutions,” said Miranda Ashby, Director of Public Sector for Cornerstone OnDemand.  “On-demand solutions can be implemented in a matter of weeks without the need for sacrificing essential features and functions, resulting in an accelerated return on investment.  And in the long term, Cornerstone’s software affords agencies a lower total cost of ownership because it eliminates the need for having to purchase and support multiple, siloed systems while also allowing for expansion as an organization’s needs grow.”

Cornerstone OnDemand is available to federal, state and local government agencies via the General Services Administration Information Technology Schedule.  For more information regarding Cornerstone’s Public Sector offerings, visit
