Toronto, ON: EQ Inc. (TSXV: EQ) (“EQ Works Inc.” or “EQ”), North America’s leader in location and behaviour data intelligence (“Location Behaviour”), is pleased to announce the extension of a multi-year partnership with leading Canadian university after a successful 2-year partnership to execute a targeted recruitment strategy.

As a partner in the recruitment process, we've had the opportunity to turn traditional recruitment on its head by engaging with potential applicants in a modern and mobile way, says Geoffrey Rotstein, President and CEO of EQ Works.

Todays digital age lends itself to great competition in higher education, necessitating the adoption of modern, mobile recruiting tools. Ultimately, success is dependent upon targeting and engaging with quality candidates who will embrace the offerings of the institution and stay through completion.

One of the goals of the University's partnership with EQ Works was to attract and engage foreign students, particularly from the US northeast. The number of foreign students attending university in Ontario increased 88.5% over six years, starting in 2010, according to figures provided by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development.

Applicant quality was also of significant importance. While KPIs like increased applications and enrolments determine short-term campaign goal satisfaction, true campaign success results in an improved standing amongst peers across North America. EQ Works efforts resulted in a 22% increase in applications for the University, with the average GPA of accepted applicants starting at 81% and resulting in a high level of satisfaction from the institution.

Our platform and advanced targeting have allowed us to zero in on the desired demographic and drive unprecedented rates of quality traffic for higher education. Being entrusted with continuing to provide those results for years to come is a great opportunity and we're excited to see what more we can do, adds Tom Wainas, Director of Client Services of EQ Works.
