(Nasdaq: SFSF) announced that FrontPoint Security, the leader in interactive, wireless home security, is the latest company to leverage SuccessFactors' Business Execution (BizX) Suite to align company goals and drive business results.
Growing from nine employees to over fifty within a year and a half, FrontPoint Security's CEO Chris Villar needed a solution to ensure alignment of goals and strategy across his rapidly growing company.

With SuccessFactors, we're ten times more focused on execution – and it's quickly becoming the foundation of how we operate our business," said Chris Villar, CEO, FrontPoint Security. "Our decision to use SuccessFactors to facilitate our execution framework really was a turning point for us in how we operate as a team and as a business. BizX enables us not to just work on things directly in front of us, but ensures everyone stays focused and aligned with long-term goals and initiatives.
