AppVault Partners With Newspapers for Employment Response Management Service

ATLANTA, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 24, 2006 -- AppVault, a global response management company, has entered into agreements with The Houston Chronicle, a member of The Hearst Corporation, and Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers to provide its Response Management Solution (RMS) for their print and online recruitment advertisers. For the first time, employers advertising within the printed newspaper will have the ability to track responses to their ads in real-time, whether the responses are e-mailed, applied online, kiosk or telephoned into the employer. In addition, an online questionnaire is used to pre-screen candidates with customized questions and scoring. Employers will be able to find the most qualified candidates faster. Other features available to employers are keyword searching, notification options and mass messaging capabilities.

"The Houston Chronicle's vast product line (online, print, kiosks, TV show, etc) generate plenty of qualified passive and active candidates. That was not the problem. Helping our customer manage those candidates was the issue," says Michael Dawes, Recruitment Advertising Director at the Houston Chronicle. "With Response Manager, our customers can now track, sort, score and rank all candidates responding to their ad -- all ads including print, online, etc. Our customers can communicate with the candidates more effectively as well. Gone are the days of physically sorting through hundreds of emails and faxes. RMS does it all for them electronically."

"Similar to other established newspaper partnerships we have, the RMS solution, offered through The Houston Chronicle and Scripps Treasure Coast, will provide employers a fast, easy-to-use resource for sorting and screening candidates," explains Tom Daly, President & CEO of AppVault. "Using this solution will provide newspapers a new revenue channel, in addition to proving the value of print."

AppVault's RMS service is utilized by over 15 newspaper markets, managing an estimated 10 million recruitment responses annually.
