QI Systems Now Supporting Parcxmart(TM) Technologies Inc. Payment Solutions; Revenue-Producing Installations Anticipated Shortly

QI Systems Inc., a developer and integrator of microchip-based card payment and tracking solutions, today announced that its technical team has completed the integration of system support for the Parcxmart(TM) card in the QI Hybrid line of smart-card POS terminals.
The QI Hybrid is the payment-terminal series designed for use in the parking industry. Integration of the patent-pending Parcxmart payment solution with the QI Hybrid terminals means that Parcxmart cards can now be accepted in Cale multi-space meters and other devices. Customer testing of the Cale meter with Parcxmart card payment is now proceeding, with revenue-producing installations anticipated shortly.

The development contract with Parcxmart (http://www.parcxmart.com), a New Hampshire-based electronic-payment firm specializing in small-dollar transactions, was previously announced by QI Systems on August 2, 2005. Parcxmart offers what is currently the only smart-card payment solution in the U.S. that combines secure transaction management, interoperability among cities and multiple merchants, and interoperability with existing payment networks. It also has the potential for other multi-application exchanges.

Utilizing QI Hybrid terminals will create many new opportunities for Parcxmart. QI can now support the Parcxmart system in applications ranging from newspaper vending boxes to high-end machines such as parking pay-on-foot stations manufactured by Scheidt & Bachmann.

Parcxmart's president and CEO, John Regan, stated, "Parcxmart is developing a network of strategic relationships and partnerships which will allow us to aggressively promote and deploy the Parcxmart payment system throughout the nation. We are excited by the opportunities for parking and for other unattended POS applications of our system using QI payment terminals."

Richard Murray, P.Eng., senior vice president and general manager of QI Systems Inc., commented, "We are very pleased about our developing relationship with Parcxmart. The Parcxmart team is pursuing the vision of interoperable stored-value technology as the preferred means of payment for small transactions. They are doing today what we believed the banking community would do years ago."

Murray added, "We believe that their business model, using parking as their first application, is the perfect fit and will achieve rapid success, because stored value offers clear and present economic advantages over other means of payment for parking."
