SonicRecruit Announces New SonicIVR

Phone-Based Employment Application Module Provides Hourly Employers With Powerful Recruiting Tool

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 19, 2007 -- Cytiva Software Inc. (TSX-V: CRX), a leading provider of on-demand recruiting software solutions, announced today the availability of SonicIVR, a new module that combines interactive voice recognition (IVR) capabilities with its leading mid-market recruiting software solution.

Now SonicRecruit clients can utilize advanced voice recognition technology to accept employment applications and screen applicants over the phone. Further, this new IVR module allows clients to automatically contact prospective candidates with potential jobs and collect responses over the phone.

All candidate data is automatically imported into SonicRecruit where recruiters can begin the vetting process with the advanced search, ranking and hiring process automation features that have made SonicRecruit a leading choice for mid-market recruiting.

Retail, hospitality, and manufacturing companies with large hourly workforces can augment their Internet and kiosk employment applications with a universally available phone-based application option. IVR recruiting can help these kinds of high-turnover organizations capture larger numbers of candidates, reducing barriers such as lack of computer access.

"Hourly employers need a strong pipeline of candidates, whether it is for seasonal hiring, or just to maintain a full pipeline to cover inherent high turnover rates," said Jason Moreau, president and CEO of Cytiva Software. "SonicIVR lets them capture and screen candidates who may not have ready access to the Internet, or who prefer the immediacy of phoning in an application."

SonicIVR is available immediately as an add-on module to SonicEntrée, SonicRecruit's hourly recruiting software solution. Interested parties can complete a mock application using SonicIVR by calling 800-941-7908.
