Cytiva Announces Tax Screening Partnership With Walton Management Services

Strategic Partnership Enables SonicRecruit Clients to Save Thousands in Tax Credits

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 21, 2006 -- Cytiva Software Inc. (TSX-V: CRX), a leading provider of mid-market talent acquisition solutions, and Walton Management Services, Inc. (WMS), a leading business financial incentives services firm, providing incentives screening services, announced today the availability of a strategic relationship allowing SonicRecruit clients to take advantage of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) and Welfare to Work (WtW) tax credit programs and capital expenditure, workforce, and location-based incentive programs

The announcement further strengthens Cytiva's SonicEntree hourly hiring system by providing an integrated method of identifying new hires that qualify for special tax credits from the state and federal governments. Now, as part of the application process, SonicRecruit can track applicant information that is used to screen for WOTC and WtW eligibility and automatically provide that information to WMS to quickly identify applicants who may qualify for the credit. Under the WOTC and WtW programs, employers receive between $2,400 and $8,500 in tax credits per eligible employee (welfare, food stamp, rehabilitation recipients, etc. are eligible).

"Identifying WOTC eligible employees is a huge task for large companies, and a large percentage of potential credits simply go unclaimed," said Jason Moreau, CEO of Cytiva. "This new relationship allows SonicRecruit's hourly clients to quickly and easily claim this and other credits, saving them thousands, even hundreds of thousands of dollars annually."

Cytiva's SonicEntree represents a strong hourly hiring solution for the hospitality, manufacturing and retail industries where the potential for WOTC credits is highest.

"It is our distinct pleasure to join industry leader Cytiva to offer the full range of employee-related services," said Walton Management Services CEO Fred Stiftel. "Our integration with the SonicRecruit and SonicEntree products enables Walton to combine our outstanding talent and specialized expertise in the financial incentive industry with the appropriate application of applicant tracking technologies to maximize savings and reduce operational and employment-related costs for our clients."

With the Walton Management Services agreement, SonicRecruit's stable of integrated third party services represents one of the most complete offerings in the industry for mid-sized organizations. WOTC eligibility screening joins the SonicRecruit menu as one of many resources available to SonicRecruit clients, including background checking, pre-employment assessment, resume processing, EEOC compliance services, and candidate sourcing.
