ARINSO International (Euronext Brussels: ARIN), a leading provider of HR Technology Consulting & Outsourcing Services, announced today that it has been selected by CA, Inc. ("CA") one of the world's largest information technology (IT) management software companies, to provide global HRO services and outsourced recruitment. ARINSO will support these administrative processes from its HR Shared Service Centers in the Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe.

The agreement with CA spans a period of five years and covers HR administration in over 30 countries globally and Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) in North America. The agreement with CA has a total contract value of over USD $60 million and confirms ARINSO's position as a global HRO service provider. It also demonstrates ARINSO's expertise in key HR processes, such as recruitment and HR administration.

The global HRO solution provided by ARINSO will serve over 15,000 CA employees and will enable CA to enhance the administrative and transactional services to internal customers by rolling out innovative self- service functionality. Services will be provided by four regional HR Shared Service Centers -- the Americas will be serviced by centers in Atlanta (US) and in Buenos Aires (Argentina), the center in Katowice (Poland) will service the EMEA region, and the fast growing Asia Pacific region will be serviced by a center in Manila (Philippines).

"CA selected ARINSO for its strong expertise with SAP and its ability to work with us to simplify and standardize our HR business processes globally," said CA's Executive Vice President of Human Resources, Andy Goodman. "This new HR model will allow us to maximize the strategic value of CA's HR professionals and provide more value-added services to our internal customers."

The North America RPO solution will enable CA to outsource the annual processing of over 20,000 candidates and the recruitment of over 1,000 applicants, based on a unique concept of 'no placement, no payment.' ARINSO has partnered with the Professional Recruitment Outsourcing unit of Philadelphia-based CDI Corporation (NYSE: CDI) to support CA's recruitment activities in the U.S. and Canada. The recruitment solution from VURV Technology will be used as the technology platform for recruitment efforts.

"Offering the right technology foundation and the most efficient delivery services to support vital HR processes, on a global basis, that's what we are all about at ARINSO," said Ignacio Palomera, President of ARINSO US.
