Nurses Lounge Signs Three Year Extension with Oracle Social Community Cloud Service

 


Dallas, TX – January 30, 2014Nurses Lounge, Inc, an online professional network for nurses and a wholly-owned subsidiary of MedCAREERS Group, Inc. (“MCGI” or the “Company”) (OTCQB:MCGI), a development stage company, today announced it has signed a three year extension with Oracle Social Community Cloud Service, the Nurses Lounge Network platform. Nurses Lounge also announced an upgrade to the Oracle RightNow CX Platform that provides improved analytics. Additionally, this will allow the dissection of the nursing professional database by near endless parameters, including specialty, education level and geographic location to instantly deliver advertising to a member’s inbox.

“Our network has run on the same service since we started in mid 2009,” said Tim Armes, the president and CEO of MedCAREERS GROUP, Inc. and founder of Nurses Lounge. “It was originally developed by HiveLive, a start-up out of Boulder, CO, that was acquired by RightNow Technologies. RightNow broadened the service, and was purchased by Oracle. The annual cost of the service is fixed at just under $35,000 whether we have one nurse on our network or three million nurses, along with every nursing school, professional association and nurse employer. It even includes 24/7 support.

“Oracle gives us a tremendously scalable platform at half the cost of what a part-time programmer costs,” Armes said. “Our investors can take comfort in knowing that we have minimal technical risks and financial certainty for the most important part of the business, the network.” He added, “To put this in perspective, if we were to bring one million nurses into our network, that is a network cost of $.035 cents, per nurse, per year. If projected annual revenue of $30 to $40 per nurse can be reached via a diverse revenue stream including recruitment advertising, continuing education, as well as targeted emails and banners, Nurses Lounge should have great margins and substantial free cash flow after accounting for a typical amount of sales and administrative costs.”
