IN-TOUCH WRAPS UP SAUDI TELECOM COMPANY PROJECT

RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA, Oct. 6, 2000 -- In-Touch has completed a unique installation for the Saudi Telecom Company (http://www.stc.com.sa) through a partnership with National Advanced Systems Co., Ltd. (NASCO, http://www.nasco.com.sa) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Sam Miles, vice president-sales & marketing for In-Touch, made the announcement.

In-Touch created a user-friendly front-end interface for the Saudi Telecom Company (STC), which is using a paging system based on Motorola's Wireless Messaging Gateway (WMG) paging terminals.

NASCO, established in 1989, is a leading telecommunications company. It specializes in designing customized and integrated information technology and office automation solutions to companies in Saudi Arabia. The company is a licensed Motorola dealer and has installed the WMG system at STC. When operational, it will have a capacity of one million subscribers.

Steve Darnell, Director of MIS for In-Touch, supervised the project on-site in Riyadh.

"We created a new product, the Remote Subscriber Administrative System (RSAS) that illustrates our company's ability to deliver a customized wireless/paging-related solution into any international working environment on fairly short notice," Darnell said.

RSAS is a provisioning and subscriber management system for activation and also features a database for subscribers. With RSAS, STC has an easy to administer interface utilizing In-Touch's core technology as a building block.

"We created a lot of new features for STC," Darnell said. "For example, the interface between the RSAS and WMG terminals will instantly notify a user if and when a subscriber transaction fails - a screen pop comes up stating the subscriber number and the error that occurred."

In-Touch Management Systems, Inc., based in Melville, NY, was founded in 1982 and is an industry leader in developing software and supplying computer management systems for the paging/NPCS industry. The company's In-Touch II system integrates seamless switch/terminal interfacing, billing, inventory, and accounts receivable functions for paging operators. In-Touch II is designed with no limits open architecture and hardware/operating system independence, allowing maximum flexibility and seamless scalability. Today In-Touch Management Systems services paging/NPCS carriers and resellers throughout the U.S. and in 17 countries in Europe, Central America and South America.
