    Satellite Communications Specialist Adding 100+ Employees Each Year

    Workstream Recruitment Professional to Reduce Hiring Costs, Lower

    BURLINGAME, CALIF., September 6 /CNW/ - Workstream Inc. (NASDAQ:   WSTM), a
leading provider of on-demand compensation, performance and talent management
solutions, today announced that EMS SATCOM, a division of EMS Technologies,
Inc. (NASDAQ:   ELMG), and a specialist in the design and development of
satellite-based terminals and antennas for the aeronautical, ground-mobile,
maritime and emergency management markets, has selected Workstream Recruitment
Professional to enhance its hiring process and reduce costs associated with
employee staffing and turnover. An on-demand solution designed specifically
for mid-size businesses, Workstream Recruitment Professional was selected by
EMS SATCOM for its enterprise-class functionality, ease-of-use and low-cost
on-demand price tag.

    "We are continually looking for specialized engineering and operations
staff for multiple sites worldwide. The recruiting system we were using simply
was not able to handle the workload," said Richard Annett, HR Manager at EMS
SATCOM. "What's more, the previous solution lacked the functionality we needed
to further accelerate growth. Workstream, on the other hand, will enable us to
store all candidate resumes in a central location, process applications
online, and search applications electronically for candidates with specific
attributes and work experience, so we find the top employee options quickly
and easily. Best of all, Workstream Recruitment Professional will be
up-and-running in a couple of weeks."

    "Workstream Recruitment Professional is essential for any mid-size
business that is outgrowing a paper-based recruiting system and ready to
step-up to a real recruiting management solution," said Deepak Gupta,
President and CEO at Workstream. "Workstream Recruitment Professional is
affordable, quick to set-up, and easy to use. Mid-size businesses like EMS
SATCOM can now compete for top talent more effectively and operate the
recruiting process as efficiently as any large enterprise."

    The Workstream Professional series includes compensation, performance
management, development and recruiting applications, as well as highly trained
professional services to quickly implement these solutions. Soon, Workstream
will complete its suite of Professional series on-demand solutions with
pay-for-performance, 360-assessment, and succession planning. All Workstream
Professional solutions are delivered on-demand, resulting in a set of
affordable applications that are hosted and maintained in a safe and secure
SAS 70 Type II certified environment.

    Workstream Recruitment Professional delivers a comprehensive on-demand
solution to mid-market clients, including support for applicant tracking,
offer letter generation, and reporting. The solution also includes an
integrated career site which supports highly automated job posting and
application processing.
