Breeze Through End-of-year/new-year Performance Reviews With New Performance Now Software From CCHKNOWLEDGEPOINT

Petaluma, Calif. (December 11, 2002) - Many organizations conduct all of their employee performance reviews in the final weeks of the old year or first weeks of the new year, a time during which managers, stressed by the demands of the season, almost universally come down with "blank page syndrome." Valuable time that managers could use for other projects is spent instead struggling to come up with the right words to describe employee performance. The flu shot for this epidemic: Performance Now 4.0, the latest version of CCHKnowledgePoint's popular performance review-writing software.

Easy to use, Performance Now 4.0 allows managers to choose competencies and rate employee performance on a high/low scale, prompting the program to automatically generate meaningful supporting text. Managers can then edit the text to provide individualized comments and work examples, and engage Performance Now's Language Checker to spot legally sensitive or inappropriate words.

"Instead of struggling with what to write, managers are able to focus on conducting productive performance discussions with their employees," says Ian Alexander, president of CCHKnowledgePoint.

New product enhancements also allow managers to use Performance Now 4.0 to set goals, document employee progress throughout the year, and develop employees using the more than 2,000+ competency-linked ideas in the new Coaching Library.

Availability, pricing and operating requirements

Performance Now 4.0 is available between now and January 15 at the special price of $155. To qualify for this special offer, purchasers should call 1-800-727-1133 or go to and mention code MH086.

This program runs on a Pentium-based computer with a minimum of 32MB RAM and 65 MB hard disk capacity, and requires Windows 98/ME/2000/NT.
