iSIGN Personal Area Network ("PAN") Recruitment Application Connects Employers and Jobseekers Through Mobile Interactions

New Application from iSIGN Allows Employers and Recruiters to Reach Potential Employees In The Palm of Their Hands

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 9, 2011) - iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ISD) is pleased to announce a new mobile recruiting application that will help to change how job seekers and employers find each other, via a new application that taps into personal area networks. Leveraging this new solution, the application is opening new possibilities for employers and job seekers alike.

Connecting Employers with Potential Employees Through Mobile Interactions

Today, 85% of North American adults own a mobile phone and the average adult spends nearly three hours using their phone every day. As each generation becomes more connected and tech-savvy, the mobile channel has become essential for companies and organizations looking to effectively engage users and potential employees. The iSIGN recruitment application allows employers to do just that, by reaching job seekers directly in the palm of their hands.

Engaging Job Seekers with Interactive Location-Based Targeting

Using an interactive solution historically known as proximity marketing, the application works by automatically detecting users who are within close range of a location or PAN and sends them messages directly to their Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones. For employers looking to reach users closer to home, the recruitment application can be customized to target users who are within close range of a specific employer or agency. Companies and organizations can reach users within close range of a store, restaurant, or office building and encourage immediate action on the user's part – i.e. filling out a job application on-site. The iSIGN recruitment application allows employers to connect with job applicants at an ideal, mutually convenient time and place, for maximum impact. All such job offers can be further transmitted by the original recipient to friends and family members.

Traditional HR, Reinvented for the Mobile Generation

Offering a high-tech supplement to traditional human resources activities, the mobile application also helps employers cut down on the time and costs associated with hiring new employees. Particularly effective for employers seeking to hire applicants on a short time table, or for employers who often experience high employee turnover rates, the application reaches a wide range of job seekers quickly and very inexpensively. Unlike other advertising and recruiting tools, the iSIGN recruitment application also offers a high level of flexibility and gathers valuable business intelligence on job seekers' behaviours and responses to messaging. This data is automatically saved for future review, helping to shape marketing campaigns for maximum effectiveness and directly impacting employers' success by extension.

As with all of iSIGN's applications, these offers are also free to recipients, as it is based upon iSIGN's core patent-pending technology.
