Viyya Subsidiary VELI Kicks Off Release of the School Safety and Management System Solution (SSMS) -- Helps Schools Manage Threats

ROSELAND, NJ--(Marketwire - October 9, 2007) - Viyya Technologies Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VYON), developer and marketer of information management systems, today announced the start of Virtual Ed Link, Inc.'s sales initiative, with the kickoff meeting in Saratoga Springs, NY on October 2, in which the SSMS for schools and colleges was turned over to the sales force for implementation.

A sense of urgency was present at the event, especially in light of the continuing threatening incidents at Delaware State, St. Johns, and a number of public schools in New York and New Jersey. In addition, a sobering reminder of the past year in this country was presented in a report from VELI staff, who, having read a report from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), reminded all that we have experienced three major hurricanes, huge wild fires, major flooding, and countless terrorist threats in the past twelve months.

It was explained that effective emergency response is based on two critical elements, as recorded by the DHS officials: situational awareness and quick information dissemination to targeted audiences. The group's confidence in the VELI solution was reinforced with the knowledge that the Emergency Alert Notification System accomplishes all of that.

This basic functionality provides the high level of real-time event monitoring, and disseminating up-to-date relevant information that reaches the appropriate audience, to assure a high level of security response. Information relevancy becomes the Holy Grail in times of emergency, with those responsible for emergency response having relevant information and the ability to distribute it quickly.

With final updates in place, the SSMS remains the most comprehensive application available for planning, teaching, training, and distributing emergency direction and notifications, under emergency conditions.

Now called the School Safety and Management System Solution (SSMS), The VELI solution is a web-based solution that can be accessed anywhere. SSMS can be customized for the particular school or college in which it is being implemented. Basic guidelines, rules and procedures, and general notifications are embedded as defaults, or the school can install its own.

In addition, different from text message solutions some institutions are attempting to put in place, the VELI application will disseminate data to any registered digital device (phone, cell phone, PDA, PC, laptop, or "Smart Sign").

Applications installed within the system provide for eLearning for students, parents, faculty, teachers and staff, in preparation for the need for emergency action, as well as mapping and escape routes, if that contingency becomes necessary.

John Bay, CEO of Viyya, said, "Our system anticipates and is comprehensive enough to help avoid that problem in an emergency."

It's easy to visualize the unfortunate consequences if alerts and emergency notifications don't get where they should.
