Workstream Announces General Availability of TalentCenter 7.0

    Recognized by Industry Pundits as Next Generation On-Demand Talent
Management Solution Delivering Superior End-User Experience, Built-in Analytic
Dashboards and Out-of-the-Box Globalization

    BURLINGAME, CALIF., November 30 /CNW/ - Workstream Inc. (Nasdaq:   WSTM), a
leading provider of on-demand compensation, performance and talent management
solutions, today announced the general availability of Workstream TalentCenter
7.0, the HR industry's most comprehensive and advanced suite of on-demand
talent management solutions for large and global organizations.

    TalentCenter 7.0 - widely regarded as the HR industry's first "Talent
Management 2.0" offering - has gained instant popularity among press and
pundits, many of whose comments can be found at

    According to the blog Tactical Talent Management Becomes
Strategic published on October 31, "Talent suites are also getting much more
integrated. Take Workstream's newest release that brings their entire suite
together through a single reporting tool. The ability to report cross
functionally used to be the domain of the ERP world, but developments like
this in the SaaS talent marketplace provide more strategic viewing of the
organization by allowing more detailed cuts of data than previously possible."

    "TalentCenter 7.0 is nothing short of an inflection point for the HR
industry," said Mike Gioja, CIO and Executive Vice President of Products &
Services at Workstream. "The combination of advanced business intelligence
capabilities, a Web 2.0 user interface and an on-demand architecture firmly
establishes TalentCenter 7.0 as the leading talent management suite.
Businesses seeking to maximize their return on investment in talent management
and related compensation and performance programs can leverage TalentCenter
7.0 today."

    Unveiled publicly for the first time last month at the Human Resource
Executive's HR Technology Conference & Exposition, TalentCenter 7.0 unifies
best-of-breed talent management solutions from Workstream including
out-of-the-box multi-language and multi-currency support, a common reporting
engine, a common security infrastructure, and user-definable, personalized
workspaces. Enhancements include:

    --  Out-of-the-Box Globalization - TalentCenter 7.0 offers built-in
support for 10 languages and multiple currencies, including languages such as
English, French, Italian, Spanish, German and double-byte language like
simplified Chinese.

    --  Unification - "No Boundaries" Cross-Module Integration - TalentCenter
7.0 provides a common reporting and user-interface layer for Workstream
applications that far exceeds the basic integration capabilities of
competitive systems by eliminating the boundaries between talent management
modules. This improves effectiveness and productivity by providing managers a
single view of information across multiple talent management solutions like
compensation planning, performance management and competency management. The
improved and intuitive look-and-feel reduces the need for training, enabling
company wide adoption and acceptance.

    --  Built-in Advanced Analytics and Dashboards - TalentCenter 7.0
delivers rich analytics and dashboards for enhanced decision-making, including
role-based views for staff at many levels. Executive dashboards quickly
identify key issues and highlight results, while line-of-business dashboards
and analytics support pay-for- performance and competency optimization

    --  Web 2.0-enabled User Interface - TalentCenter 7.0 provides a superior
end-user experience, with heavy use of Web 2.0 conventions such as dynamic
rollovers that improve usability. The new software is highly configurable and
improved navigation enhances productivity by ensuring fewer mouse-clicks for
faster access to information.

    "We are very excited about the general availability of Talent Center 7.0
because nobody else in this industry can deliver the breadth and depth of
functionality and user experience," said Deepak Gupta, President and CEO at
Workstream. "This positions Workstream ahead of other solution providers in
the industry and represents a significant milestone for Workstream."
