QI Systems Inc. Begins Shipment of $225,000 in Orders to Montreal Customer

QI Systems Inc., a leading developer and integrator of smart-card payment and tracking solutions, today announced that it has started shipping a total of US$225,000 in orders for smart-card payment terminals to Cale Systems Inc., a leading parking-revenue systems developer based in Montreal, Quebec.
Originally scheduled for delivery in September and December of 2005, the shipments were delayed to allow for design changes that will enhance functionality and improve manufacture ability. Delivery should be complete by the end of April 2006. The outlook for additional orders thereafter is excellent.

Smart cards are gaining considerable momentum in the $15+ billion parking industry. System operators are now opting for electronic payment strategies that also incorporate greatly improved data collection in parking equipment. Both QI and Cale are well-positioned to capitalize on this industry development.

Cale (Canada) has been a customer of QI Systems since the year 2000, when QI first developed card-payment technology for use in Cale pay-and-display parking meters in Sherbrooke, Quebec as part of the largest North American installation of the Mondex stored-value card system.

Since that time, QI has worked with Cale to develop and support several smart-card systems and also to support credit-card payment abilities in Cale parking meters. Working together, QI and Cale have delivered best-of-breed card payment technologies now being utilized by Cale's various government and private-sector customers.
