|robward: Hi All
Well I have to admit I was a little nervous when I saw the "Trading Update" before I read it. After the steady decline in the share price I thought perhaps a profit-warning was on the cards. Although Manpower have been announcing plenty of Contracts, they have increased their workfore, hense costs considerably. Anyway, I can now sleep easy again and hopefully after this stock overhang has been cleared it will be onwards and upwards for the share price.
|robward: Hi Cesar
Its not that fustrating because with the current forecasts the share price is up with events. MNS are forecast todo 3p for y/e May 2008 and the 3.7p for y/e May 2009. Once this May is out the way and the Market starts to look forward to 2009 the shares will be re-rated (assuming the business still continues apace)
As you know I'm a long-term holder and am happy to hold for a few more years yet....if the U.S Healthcare side and N.A.T.O individual countries start to adopt M.A.P.S then this price may well look very silly.
See you soon I expect
|david77: Read the news items. Looks as tho they are winning orders. Directors were buying at higher prices. Share price going down either means that there is something we don't know or the shares are becoming even better value.
I don't have any spare cash so I won't be buying - but I won't be selling either.|
|liarspoker: Well. on other threads people react with a bit more gusto to director buys. I have a feeling the share price here will increase slowly but surely. :O)
I don't hold btw.|

Been in the U.S for a few weeks so havnt posted. Pleased to see Manpower still doing the business.....
LONDON, June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Manpower Software is pleased to welcome
Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS
Trust, Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Hertfordshire
Partnership NHS Trust to our growing NHS electronic staff rostering user
Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Trust selected MAPS Healthroster after
conducting an OJEU tender exercise. An OJEU is a formal tendering route,
involving a rigorous competitive process with the Trust comparing a number of
solutions in the market. MAPS Healthroster was chosen by the Trust as the
most economically advantageous offer judged on price, quality of product and
service, delivery performance, risk and overall cost effectiveness.
Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust selected MAP
Healthroster after conducting Manpower Software's unique 'Roster Assessment'
which measured how the Trust was managing its workforce at ward level. The
results showed that improved use could be made of permanent staff, resulting
in less requests for more expensive temporary staff, and delivered a strong
business case to the Trust board for the implementation of an electronic
staff rostering system.
The Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Trust also conducted a 'Roster
Assessment', and have chosen MAPS Healthroster after analysing the savings
that could be realised from the electronic rostering system. The Trust joins
two others in Hertfordshire who have selected MAPS Healthroster - East &
North Hertfordshire NHS Trusts and West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust.
This now brings the total number of NHS Trusts who have ordered MAPS
Healthroster to 22, which includes 13 Acute Trusts, 5 Foundation Trusts and 4
Mental Health/Learning Disability Trusts.
The share price may be consolidating but for long-term holders it represents a buying opportunity.
|robward: Hi Recruiter
We cant expect MNS share price to go up everyday..a little profit-taking is inevitable but if you like the long-term picture then hold your shares....

I agree with Dave122 and think that the share price will consolidate until the broker upgrades are announced. Its very difficult to value the business when we dont have those forecasts. As most of you know i am a VERY long-term holder and am still happy to hold for a few more years yet !! Its little snippets like this that i like to read......
Health Select Committee report slams HR in the NHS over 'disastrous' workforce planning
02 April 2007 11:00This article first appeared in Personnel Today magazine. Subscribe online and save 20%.
HR professionals in the NHS have come under fire following a damning report by MPs on workforce planning in the health service.
The Health Select Committee report said NHS workforce planning had been "a disastrous failure", with too few people with the ability and skills to do the task. It urged "more time, effort and resources" to be devoted to the challenge.
"Strategic Health Authorities must recruit workforce planners of the highest calibre and ensure that they are supported by staff with appropriate skills," the committee said. "Most HR staff do not have these skills."
MPs held an inquiry into workforce planning following signs that the health service was spending too much on staff, with posts being frozen and redundancies becoming commonplace. Training budgets have been cut and newly qualified staff have been unable to find jobs as a result.
"The planning system remains poorly integrated, and there is an appalling lack of co-ordination between workforce and financial planning," the report said.
NHS Employers - the body responsible for employment issues - said it was "in complete agreement" with the committee on this issue. "We have long made the point that successful planning depends on the close alignment of financial, service and workforce needs," a spokesman said.
Responsibility for this planning is cross-organisational, not simply the role of the HR director.
"We recognise it is important to ensure the NHS has the skills and capacity in the service to enable HR directors to make a full contribution to the process."
The Healthcare People Management Association (HPMA) insisted joint working between HR and finance professionals was already under way. Deborah O'Dea, the association's president, said: "The HPMA is actively promoting the role of HR professionals in successfully leading this work, in conjunction with finance colleagues."
The HPMA is developing a new workstream for members, called People and Money, to help improve partnership working between finance and HR, O'Dea said.
The significant piece of the article that I like is that HPMA and Manpower Software are partners.....and of course...we have the best workforce planning in the world...imo
|sja123: More contracts won.......director buys galore.......and a significantly ahead trading statement.....share price down today!
It makes you wonder what people want......|

Leighton Contractors to transform resource management with MAPS Workforce Planning
Manpower Software is pleased to announce that Leighton Contractors Pty Ltd of Sydney NSW has ordered its MAPS Workforce Planning system to control resource management and workforce planning for its 3000 staff at offices and on sites throughout Australia.
Leighton Contractors is one of Australia's major and best known construction and engineering contractors and has successfully delivered civil, building telecommunications, resource, transport and social infrastructure projects throughout Australia since its foundation in 1949. It is part of the Leighton Holding group of companies, which employs 25,000 people throughout Australia and Asia and is Australia's largest project development and contracting group,
Clive Jecks, Manpower Software's director Asia-Pacific, comments:
'Leighton Contractors' order for MAPS is a landmark in the development of Manpower Software. Not only is it the first order for MAPS from the construction and engineering sector, but it reinforces our position as the premier provider of workforce planning systems in Australia, following the recent order placed by the Royal Australian Navy for MAPS Naval Crew Manning.
We intend to build on a successful implementation at Leighton Contractors to establish Manpower Software as the worldwide leader in workforce planning for construction and engineering, just as we already are in the defence, shipping and healthcare sectors.'
MAPS Workforce Planning ensures that right staff with the right skills are available to deliver current and future projects, enabing effective deployment of staff to projects
and providing visibility of future load to ensure the workforce reflects these goals. It addresses every area of construction and engineering workforce planning, including project resource planning and optimisation, forward load visibility and training and recruitment needs analysis.
I can understand why the share price has been so strong !!
|robward: Morning All
Although MNS share price has remained pretty ststic over the past couple of days, the announcement yesterday, I believe, could be hugely significant moving forward. We all know MNS have excellent software which has the potential to cover many industries (although we are only concentrating on 3 at the moment) and the new Chief Operating Officer has previously grown a business from a turnover of $1 to a turnover of $200. Now assuming this guy only improves our sales 10-fold from here, I still feel quite excited going forward on the potential growth of this business. As many of you know I acquired my stock in December 2001 and have not sold a share, I am the Warren Buffett of Southampton (lol !!!!!)
Good luck to all holders
