Bond International Software Web-based Recruitment Software Product no Longer Limited to Internet Explorer

WORTHING, England, November 18, 2010 - Bond International Software the
global provider of hosted recruitment software ( and
recruitment software as a service ( (SaaS),
today announces that their latest version of the Bond Adapt Version 11
recruitment software as a service is fully browser independent as standard.

As a result, Bond customers using this version will be able to
access their Bond Adapt Version 11 systems irrespective of which browser they
are accessing the internet through and without time consuming and expensive
customisation - a technical advance that sets Bond apart from many of its
competitors, who are only able to provide access to their systems through
Internet Explorer.

Daniel Richardson, Chief Technology Officer at Bond
International Software, comments, "Initially, Internet Explorer held a
significantly dominant market share in the browser market, leaving barely 10%
of the market for any competitors. However, on account of perceived claims of
faster service from alternative browsers, we have seen a dramatic variation
in browser adoption, first in Asia-Pac and then across EMEA. Browser
independence therefore becomes significantly more important than ever before
as the methods of internet access have suddenly broadened."

Bond's products are often provided over the internet via a
SaaS model, and those that are hosted on the customers' sites also have an
internet-based remote access capability, making the ability to accommodate
different working practices vital.

Richardson continues, "With the increasing variety of
browsers, our growth potential was threatened, especially overseas. As a
result, we have spent a great deal of time and effort retrospectively
ensuring that the latest releases of Bond Adapt Version 11 are entirely
compatible with any browser. This has entailed an adaptation of underlying
code, and also a proactive effort in ensuring that later development is

Bond's browser independence sets its hosted recruitment
software portfolio apart from that of its competitors, as while tailored work
has been undertaken by some other web-based recruitment software providers to
ensure compatibility with selected browsers, Bond is the only organisation
that is able to claim full browser independence. Richardson adds, "Through
dedicating development resource to ensuring robust browser independence, we
have fully adapted our current web-based recruitment software ( Adapt
Version 11 offering and our ongoing development programme. This is a level of
effort and activity that many of our competitors simply do not have the
resources to commit to, which is why we believe we are the only organisation
to have managed to achieve full browser independence with our hosted
recruitment software."

Richardson concludes, "Independence has always been our ethos,
be that in terms of, for example, the user interface language or the
underlying database. Showing full browser independence is the final piece of
the jigsaw."
