Haufe is one of the largest HR/talent management software providers in Europe. Their clients include premiere brands such as the BMW Group, Lindt Chocolates, and Goodyear Tires. Each of these global brands has thousands of employees, all of whom are being managed through Haufe’s software suite.

As Haufe’s expansion plans continue to develop, North America is a new frontier, filled with endless possibility as well as stiff competition.

Enter Syndctd. Syndctd was hired to help advise and execute Haufe’s entrance into the American market through helping to examine what has made Haufe successful in Europe and navigate how best to translate that success into North America. In summation, our service offering was essentially three large client services; consultancy surrounding the translation and building of a new Haufe.us website, creation of the new Haufe US introduction video, and the planning, building, management and execution of the Haufe US experience at the HR Tech Conference in Las Vegas.


Syndctd designed the entire user experience (UX) for the Haufe.us website. Syndctd advised on which information from previous resources, sites and references should be displayed on the site, helped create the site structure, and then provided copywriting services to complete the site copy for the appropriate sections. The largest part of the UX service offering was page layout and wireframing, during which Syndctd helped strategize the most efficient way for potential customers to learn about Haufe’s unique and progressive approach to talent management.


Syndctd produced the commercial video in tandem with long-time video partner, Valentine Productions. Syndctd helped plan the shoot, hire the talent and production staff. develop the script, and act as the on-site producers. Check out the video below – it is also featured as the introduction video on the website.


Syndctd designed the Trade Show experience for Haufe at the 2014 HR Tech Conference in Vegas, coordinating and managing their brand presence from top to bottom. This included sourcing vendors and designing the booth activation area as well as hiring and managing the brand ambassadors. Our efforts resulted in over 300 hot leads from customers looking to know more about Haufe’s Talent Management solution, which was considered a huge success by the President of Haufe US, Mr. Kelly Max, as well as top management at Haufe Europe.  All in all, this was the most successful marketing activity that Haufe US has been a part of to date! See below for more information on our activation.
