Digital Dispatch Announces Over $1M in New Contracts

RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 12, 2005) - Digital Dispatch Systems Inc. (TSX:DD) announced today that it has won contracts worth over $1 million, including the Company's first taxi contract in Washington D.C. Under a new agreement, the Yellow Cab Company of D.C. Inc. will purchase over 300 Vector 530 mobile data terminals, PathFinder application and communications infrastructure from Digital Dispatch.

"We will be the first taxi company in D.C. to have computerized dispatching and as the largest dispatcher in our service area, we are looking to have a significant competitive edge," said Vaughn Williams, CEO and President of Yellow Cab of D.C. "Along with faster response to customers, the ability to handle more calls with existing resources, and minimize idle miles on the road, we are also looking to provide complete customer satisfaction by offering in-vehicle credit card payment as well. We expect this system to increase our efficiency as well as generate more trips, meaning more revenue for us and attract more drivers," Mr. Williams concluded.

"We are really excited to be the vendor of choice for Yellow Cab. Considering that the DC market is estimated to have over 7000 vehicles, it is significant that we will be the first computerized mobile data dispatch provider to bring this technology to this market," said John Taylor-Wilson, Vice President of North American Sales. "The fact that we are able to do this with our second generation of dispatch application, the PathFinder, makes this project all the more strategic."

In addition, our existing customer Taxis G7 of Paris, France, has chosen to deploy our flagship product, the iPilot 8000 mobile computer. G7 will purchase 225 iPilot 8000 units to support its growing fleet and has already deployed over 4,000 MC 1790 mobile computers, a predecessor of the iPilot 8000.
