APS, SHA STAFF HITECH ASIA FORM PARTNERSHIP

HONG KONG, Jan. 19, 2001 -- Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS; http://www.aps2k.com) has formed a strategic partnership with Hong Kong-based SHA Staff Hitech Asia (http://www.sha-hk.com). Doug Coull, APS' president, made the announcement.

SHA Staff Hitech Asia is an executive search firm established in 1999 that focuses on CEO and senior level positions, primarily in high technology, media and telecommunications. According to Amy Chow, the company's founder, SHA Staff Hitech Asia will be using APS' SmartSearch Online to facilitate the company's candidate tracking and recruitment process.

"We decided to partner with APS because SmartSearch Online is the most comprehensive Internet recruiting solution," Chow said. "We can keep notes and contact histories with a candidate's resume. The system is also easily customizable - we can enter complex strings of custom search parameters that enhance our productivity. We also don't have to maintain hardware, software or scanning equipment and can access the system anywhere, anytime."

Chow added that "as I come from sizeable headhunting companies that had their own database system that were not user-friendly, non-scalable and non-flexible, I really enjoy what we have from SmartSearch Online, where the speed of the headhunting and recruitment process can be shortened by 80 percent! This significantly strengthens our competitiveness in the market place. The working style of our consultants is more relaxed, responsive and better focused."

Chow added that SmartSearch Online will also soon be used in the firm's Singapore and Taiwan offices.

APS (http://www.aps2k.com) is an innovative leader in developing Internet-based solutions for the staffing industry. Established in 1985, the firm is based in Oceanside, CA, about 30 miles north of San Diego. The company's flagship product, SmartSearch Online (http://www.smartsearchonline.com), provides clients worldwide with the technology framework for their Internet recruiting strategy. SmartSearch Online is the only product offering wireless access and integration with Microsoft Outlook.

In addition to selling and marketing SmartSearch Online in the United States, APS maintains strategic partnerships with companies in France, Germany and Hong Kong that distribute the product throughout Europe and Asia. Clients include Tyson Foods, Corestaff, Adecco, Interstate Hotels, Sharp HealthCare, Belcan Technical Services, Quantum Resources, Copper Mountain Networks, and more.
