Manpower Software Announces Fifteen New Healthcare Contract Wins

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 4, 2009) - Manpower Software plc, the leading provider of workforce optimisation solutions, is pleased to announce an increase in NHS Trust customers in its third quarter ended 28 February 2009. Fifteen NHS Trusts have awarded new contracts for the purchase of MAPS Healthroster, the leading electronic rostering solution for healthcare providers. In the current financial year, 1 June 2008 to 31 May 2009, 36 NHS Trusts have signed contracts for MAPS Healthroster, which has now been selected by 74 NHS Trusts in total. MAPS Healthroster has also been selected by three private healthcare organisations, of which two are overseas.

The fifteen UK NHS Trusts which have awarded contracts to the Company in the third quarter are:

- Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust

- East London NHS Foundation Trust

- Kent and Medway Mental Health and Social Care NHS Trust

- Mid Yorkshire Hospital NHS Trust

- North Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

- Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

- North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust

- Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

- Papworth Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

- Plymouth Teaching Primary Care Trust

- Queen Mary's Sidcup NHS Trust

- Queen Elizabeth Hospital NHS Trust

- Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust

- South West Essex Primary Care Trust

- York Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Key to choosing MAPS Healthroster is its ability to provide a better understanding of demand versus supply of clinical staff, how this is balanced against efficient use of budgets and how it helps reduce the administrative burden for HR, clinical and payroll staff.

Commenting, Ian Bowles, Chief Executive Officer said: "Our commitment to the NHS and the broader healthcare sector continues to create confidence, both at Executive level and throughout our customers' organisations, that our approach to clinical electronic rostering delivers very significant benefits. Our applications generate significant return on investment by reducing costs, releasing time to care and thereby helping to improve patient outcomes. In the healthcare sector we have had an outstanding third quarter, signing fifteen new contracts, including our first contract to supply and integrate Biometric Time and Attendance devices and our first agreement to provide a fully hosted electronic rostering solution working over N3, the NHS compliant network protocol. I am particularly pleased with evidence of the continuing demand for our products within the NHS and private healthcare markets, demonstrated by our recent successes with Sunway Medical Centre (Malaysia) and Boston University Radiology Associates (USA). We will continue to grow revenues in the global healthcare sector over the coming years as our domain expertise and experience is recognised by more healthcare organisations. Our strategic partnerships with PwC & ACS Healthcare Solutions mean our growing healthcare customer base can access additional services and complimentary solutions. I am confident that we will continue to deliver significant benefits and innovation in this very important market sector as we progress through the rest of this fiscal year and into next."
