Houston, Texas, UNITED STATES


HOUSTON, Sept. 9, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- COMSYS Information Technology Services, Inc. (COMSYS), a leading provider of information technology staffing and solutions services, has expanded their Vendor Management Solution at National Real Estate Information Services (NREIS), one of the largest mortgage and real estate transaction companies in the U.S. Under this multi-year contract, COMSYS will manage the procurement of all contingent staffing services at the company's headquarters in Pittsburgh, PA and support for six regional service centers nationally.

COMSYS was awarded the initial contract in November 2003, to implement a Web-based, fully automated staffing management system developed by San Francisco based Econometrix, Inc for procuring administrative and clerical work. After demonstrating significant cost and time savings with the vWorx vendor management program, COMSYS was offered the additional responsibility for managing all IT and contingent staffing services.

COMSYS Vice President of Vendor Management Services Jamiel S. Saliba said, "We have had a solid relationship with National Real Estate for several years and are delighted to expand our support to them. The latest component of our vendor management program provides an additional opportunity for us to work on their behalf to make the contingent labor process less time-consuming, more efficient and cost-effective."

COMSYS' vWorx program for National Real Estate was designed to simplify the complexity of working with over multiple vendors and contractors. COMSYS is responsible for the management and training of all suppliers on a third-party timekeeping and payroll system enabling National Real Estate to accurately track, measure, and analyze every transaction in the vendor supply chain process.

"We selected COMSYS to manage our contingent labor services because of their significant experience with aligning overall business processes," commented Mike Forgas, President of NREIS. "COMSYS has provided pragmatic recommendations for process improvements, cost savings, and technology enhancements in our supplier contract services. COMSYS has designed a solution for our company driven by the unique requirements of our business process. We are delighted to continue our relationship with COMSYS."

COMSYS' vWorx Vendor Management Services practice follows an ISO 9001:2000-certified methodology for business processes. Combined with the quality management system, COMSYS has also placed a dedicated management team onsite to ensure continued consistency and client satisfaction.
