Strategic Alliance with EBI Strengthens iCIMS’ Client Services iCIMS widens its product offering to include full suite of background screening services

Hazlet, NJ and Owings Mills, MD – August 15, 2005 – iCIMS, a leading provider of web-based Hiring Management Solutions, and Employment Background Investigations (EBI) today announced a strategic partnership that will allow recruiters using iCIMS' applicant tracking solutions to incorporate full background checks on all new job candidates online. This partnership allows users of iCIMS' iRecruiterTM Applicant Tracking Solution to perform background investigations and drug screenings effortlessly through the integration of the two software platforms. Further, the strategic alliance between the two companies gives clients the opportunity to further reduce their Time-to-Hire, as the online method can be accomplished in less time than manual background check processes.

As a result of this partnership, recruiters can now send basic information about the potential employee through iRecruiterTM and the background investigation results will be returned back into the same system. This keeps all of the candidates' information in one centralized location, which helps Human Resources control its workflow and maintain one organized hiring management system, all online.

"We chose to work with EBI because they, like iCIMS, tailor their product to the needs of the mid-market," said Colin Day, President & CEO of iCIMS. "This partnership is about two companies who focus on offering products that are both easy to use and effective in fulfilling the needs of the customer." Rick Kurland, President of EBI, expressed a similar point of view. "As the mid-market leader, iCIMS is a great match for EBI," he said. "We felt that there was a natural synergy between our organizations, specifically with regard to the markets we serve and our general corporate philosophies. These factors and more will allow EBI to address the needs of more clients and allows iCIMS to seamlessly expand its product offering." Day continues, "At iCIMS, one of our major strengths is our ability to stay focused on our Applicant Tracking Solution, yet constantly show our clients a tangible ROI through product expansion.

Strategic partnerships, like our new pairing with EBI, help us follow this model. By working with another specialized company who shares a similar approach to business, our clients can be assured of a complete Human Resource solution. We are enthusiastic about this partnership and look forward to what it will help to achieve in the future."
