acquisition professionals and workforce planners
NEW YORK, April 28 /CNW Telbec/ - WANTED Technologies (TSXV: WAN), the
leading source of real-time business intelligence for the talent marketplace, today announced that it has been included in the Gartner "Cool Vendors in Human Capital

of Gartner's Cool Vendors list," said Bruce Murray, WANTED's President
and CEO. "We are creating a new category of business intelligence for
the human capital professionals. We focus on supply and demand in the
talent marketplace to make HRM processes more efficient. This includes
workforce planning, talent acquisition, social recruiting, workforce
analytics, talent management and succession planning."
WANTED Technologies maintains a data warehouse of more than 600 million
online job postings that have been collected since June 2005. The
company's flagship product, WANTED Analytics™ (www.wantedanalytics.com) is a "software-as-a-service" solution that provides, for the first

how difficult it might be to find such employees.
In addition, WANTED's clients in the media, staffing and government
sectors use Analytics™ to find sales leads, analyze employment trends, gather competitive
intelligence, forecast economic conditions.
"We help professionals in the talent marketplace solve business problems
