Bond Continues to Show why it is Still the Market-leading Provider of Staffing Agency Software and Human Capital Management Software -

WORTHING, England, November 19, 2010 - Today, Bond International Software supplier of
staffing agency software (,
celebrates its 37th year in the recruitment industry. Over almost four
decades, Bond has provided recruitment companies - from small independent
firms to large international enterprises - with recruitment system
( solutions and HR support via
outsourced services and tailored software packages.

To name just a few of Bond's recent triumphs; its recruitment agency
software ( Mobile Recruitment
Suite has been showcased, its Executive Search software, Bond Vantage, has
been launched, and its case management system, Bond Adapt Employ, has broken
into the specialist employment services market, proving that 2010 really has
been Bond's year for recruitment system innovations!

With over 3,000 international customers and 100,000 global users to date,
Bond is the number one choice for providing for the top recruiters in the
world. Regularly strengthening its position as the leading provider of
recruitment system solutions and human capital management software, Bond has
continued to provide innovation after innovation to pave the way in the
industry. This year, its flagship product Bond Adapt- the specialist
portfolio of recruitment software applications - has continued to be
developed and enhanced to meet market demands. It is still the only product
of its kind which is 100% configurable and fully scalable. As a clear sign of
the excellence in quality offered by Bond's products, Bond International
Software has just been confirmed as members of APSCO - the professional body
and unified voice for the Recruitment and Staffing market. This membership
will give Bond's brand and product messages great recognition and leverage
within the industry, thus further offering the opportunity to keep in-touch
with, and work actively alongside, staffing agency software clients and
prospects alike.

A Year of Innovations

The development of Bond Vantage saw Bond International Software move into
the field of executive search. Bond Vantage is based upon the technology
which has proven so successful for its well established cousin, recruitment
agency software, Bond Adapt, but has been specially designed to meet the
requirements of executive search firms.

This year has also marked the launch of Bond People Services, a bespoke
HR and personnel outsourcing staffing agency software solution that provides
tailored programmes of HR support. Bond People Services supplies outsourced
HR support that can either be provided independently or as a bespoke package
to either support or replace the HR arrangements already in situ. The service
can also complement Bond's outsourced payroll solution, Bond Payroll
Services, highlighting how recruitment system solutions from Bond
International Software either work independently or together to support
organisations of any size in their back office processes.

Bond also recently launched recruitment system Bond Adapt Employ to
support Welfare to Work (the Work Programme) Partners and specialist
employment services. This move sees recruitment agency software, Bond Adapt
breaking into new markets, highlighting the fact that Bond is at the
forefront of providing innovative, leading staffing agency software products.

Excelling in Customer Service

Adapt is still the number one choice for recruitment agency software for
the top recruiters in the world, including Adecco, Kelly Services, Alexander
, Manpower and Hays.

Steve Weston, Group Technology Director at Hays, comments, "As a global
business, communication between our 5,000 consultants is a key issue. The
latest Adapt recruitment system, bringing multi-lingual capabilities coupled
with scalability through a web-based delivery model, provides a platform that
enables business options that historically couldn't be realised. So the
decision to upgrade to the V11 staffing agency software was an obvious and
easy choice for us to make."

Recently, Phee Farrar Jones, who after a full analysis of Bond's
competitors, re-signed with Adapt V11 this year, extending their 10 year
recruitment system relationship with Bond. Chris Chandler, Managing Director
of Phee Farrar Jones, commented, "Bond Adapt V11 was superior in its ability
to configure any area of the recruitment agency software or workflow
immediately and according to our previous business needs… without Bond
Adapt it seemed to us that there would be no competitive edge."

Bond's level of customer service in its staffing agency software
provision is not only recognised by its existing client base, but is also
compliant with the Quality Management System standard. Bond is the first
recruitment agency software company in the UK to be accredited with the ISO
9001:2008 standard in customer care, recognition of their excellent service
and recruitment system support skills.

Always Developing

Investing GBP4.9 million of their annual turnover into research and
development of new recruitment system solutions, Bond International Software
continues to be at the very forefront of staffing agency software innovation.
Its flagship recruitment agency software, Bond Adapt has a number of features
which will be added by December 2010, thus further enhancing its
functionality. Examples of recent recruitment system enhancements include the
announcement that the latest version of Bond Adapt recruitment agency
software (V11) is fully browser independent as standard. This technical
advance sets Bond aside from its competitors and other recruitment system
solutions available, many of which are only available via Internet Explorer.
Additionally, 2010 has marked the year that Bond moved into the mobile
recruitment space, embracing the principle of iDesking, or the "recruiter on
the move" theory, via its iPad and iPhone applications. Such advances
continue to keep Bond International Software ahead of staffing agency
software market trends and demand.

37 years as the number one recruitment agency software and human capital
management software provider proves that age and wisdom really do come hand
in hand. With so many years of recruitment system experience in the bag, it
is also entirely refreshing to see that Bond is constantly keeping ahead of
the times, and competitors: launching new recruitment system solutions,
entering new markets and most importantly, succeeding in providing innovative
technologies, 2010 has been a year of celebrations for Bond International
Software. With plenty more in the pipeline, the recruitment system future is
looking healthy for the market-leading provider of staffing agency software
and human capital management software.
