Epic Data New Product Announcement: IntegraTrak™

Real-Time Shop Floor Parts and Asset Tracking System to Improve Product Quality, Productivity and Throughput for Manufacturers

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2009) - Epic Data International Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EKD), a provider of manufacturing operations management and real-time data collection solutions, today announced the introduction of IntegraTrak™, a new parts and asset tracking software application added to its Integra™ suite of manufacturing operations management solutions.

"We see a need to provide real-time visibility to shop floor operations management so they can quickly respond to shortage or quality problems, and optimize throughput and capacity utilization," said Alan Foster, Epic Data's Executive Vice President of Products & Services. "Many customers have told us how production lines have come to a halt because of missing parts or tools, or that workers have ordered more material than they needed in case some of it showed up late or was missing. IntegraTrak solves these problems - production lines run efficiently, workers are more productive and inventory costs are reduced."

In addition to parts and asset location, IntegraTrak can also provide an audit trail of a part's movement and a complete genealogy of a final assembly for quality control and production reporting. Further, IntegraTrak works seamlessly with Epic Data's IntegraNet real-time shop floor data collection management system to ensure the integrity and 24/7 availability of shop floor data for ERP and other manufacturing operations management (MOM) systems.

"IntegraTrak's true value is revealed when things don't go as planned," continued Mr. Foster. "IntegraTrak gives shop floor workers, production managers and quality control teams the real-time and historical information they need to quickly make decisions that reduce operational cost while improving efficiency and product quality."
