Visual Management Systems Announces the Completion of Its Acquisition of Intelligent Digital Systems

TOMS RIVER, NJ--(Marketwire - April 30, 2008) - Visual Management Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: VMSY), a full-spectrum Digital Surveillance provider, is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition of substantially all the assets of Intelligent Digital Systems, LLC., a leading enterprise surveillance software development company and manufacturer of the TechEye® Line of Network and Digital Video Recording Devices.

As part of the transaction, Visual Management Systems (VMSY) and Intelligent Digital Systems (IDS) entered into a joint venture to obtain approval of certain patent applications formerly held by IDS that are relevant to VMSY's industry which have been assigned to the new entity. The joint venture has granted VMSY an exclusive license to use the technology which is the subject of the patent applications in the manufacture, distribution, integration and installation of digital video surveillance devices for the security industry.

With this acquisition VMSY will seek to expand its customer base through agreements with prominent security and technology distributors. The acquisition provides further opportunities for VMSY to market to industrial, enterprise, municipal and government surveillance users. This acquisition is expected to position VMSY to increase top line revenues of Visual Management Systems' PDG subsidiary.

Jason Gonzalez, president and CEO of Visual Management Systems, stated, "Entering new channels and expanding to enterprise-level customers has always been a key element of our business plan. We are now better positioned to address the needs of enterprise and government security markets, and further assist our commercial users with operational performance gains in traditional safety and security."

The proprietary TechEye® software, trademarks and patent applications also serve to increase VMSY's intellectual property portfolio. In addition to new releases of the core TechEye® products, VMSY plans to expand upon the existing offering to introduce several additional surveillance products and software versions that offer new features and functionality throughout the remainder of the year.
