PACE Staffing Network Defies Rising Operating Cost Trends With InstaStaff Communication System

Rapidly Growing Staffing Firm to Be Featured Speaker in Webinar on Applying Staffing Communication Technology to Recruiting Processes

GLENDALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 14, 2007 -- PACE Staffing Network is spending more time on candidate-to-job match quality and less time dialing for dollars using InstaStaff, the leading provider of staffing communication fulfillment tools. According to the Staffing Industry Benchmarking Consortium, operating cost as a percent of revenue has been trending upward in the staffing industry for three years, offsetting gross margin improvements. PACE Staffing Network, a company that measures productivity by gross margin, is beating this trend by applying InstaStaff's innovative communication technology to its recruiting activities to streamline processes and increase operational efficiency. Terri Abbe, area manager of PACE Staffing Network, and Scott Bringhurst, recruiter, will be speaking about the impact of the InstaStaff system and results achieved during the hour-long webinar, "A Recruiter's View: How PACE Staffing is Revolutionizing Its Recruiting Processes," which will take place on Wednesday, February 21, 2007 at 10:00 AM PT / 1:00 PM ET.

"I am extremely pleased with our decision to integrate InstaStaff into our recruiting processes," explained Jeanne Knutzen, president of PACE Staffing Network. "As we move more aggressively into high-volume staffing markets, PACE Staffing needed a reliable and predictable way to reach large numbers of people without doing the typical, laborious burn-out work that drives up costs and wears on our service team. The InstaStaff system has met both of my objectives. We are filling orders faster and more efficiently than our competition and have seen significant gross margin improvements that would have otherwise required additional staff to achieve. Jobs that took five to six hours to fill before can be filled in 10 to 15 minutes -- or less -- using the InstaStaff system. Plus, our recruiters have time to consult with their customers instead of feeling frazzled at the end of the day. InstaStaff has delivered an incredible ROI for our staffing operations."

Patrick Stuver, executive vice president of InstaStaff, commented, "InstaStaff's communication technology provides companies with a significant competitive advantage in a tight market, enabling staffing agencies to grow exponentially without increasing overhead. We are pleased to have PACE Staffing Network as a valued customer and look forward to PACE's continued success with its expansion into high-volume staffing markets."
