Workbrain Announces Comprehensive Workforce Absence Solution

    Robust compliance and case management capabilities enable companies to
    manage and mitigate effects of absenteeism

    TORONTO, March 13 /CNW/ - Workbrain, the leading provider of workforce
management solutions for large enterprises (TSX:WB), today announced the
launch of Absence Management, the first module of its new Workforce Absence
application. Built with input from leading clients and product advisory
councils, the solution automates and integrates the entire absence and leave
management process. The software allows organizations to manage, report and
analyze even the most complex absences and employee leaves for unprecedented
visibility and insight into patterns and trends, and control over both the
direct costs and hidden impacts of absenteeism.
    "No one knows the challenges of absence management that face businesses
today as well as the companies themselves," said David Stein, Chief Strategy
Officer at Workbrain. "Verizon Communications, one of our very first Absence
Management clients, provided key input throughout our development process.
This real-world perspective helps us deliver solutions that will serve our
clients. Connecting with our clients during development is particularly
important because traditional absence management solutions have typically
underserved organizations that need visibility into the impacts of
absenteeism, and the control over its associated direct and indirect costs."
    Verizon Communications, a leader in delivering broadband and other
wireline and wireless communication innovations, is currently implementing
Workbrain's total workforce management solution.

    Web Seminar Showcases New Solution
    Workbrain will feature its new Workforce Absence solution during a
complimentary web seminar on March 21, 2007. The web seminar will discuss how
Workbrain has addressed the challenges and impacts of absenteeism. Presenting
alongside Workbrain will be Verizon Communications. To register for the web

and improve employee satisfaction. The solution further reduces the costs and
errors associated with manual processes with its unique ability to handle

other legislative policies.
