GlobalWise Announces New Channel Sales Partnership With RJ Young

New Partnership Is With One of the Top 50 Office Equipment Dealers in the US

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2012) - GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (OTCBB: GWIV) (OTCQB: GWIV) (www.GlobalWiseInvestments.com) and its wholly owned subsidiary Intellinetics, Inc., a leading-edge technology company focused on the design, implementation and management of cloud-based Enterprise Content Management ("ECM") systems in both the public and private sectors, today announce a new Channel Sales Partnership has been signed with RJ Young.

Since 1955, RJ Young has provided businesses across the Southeast with the highest quality office equipment and innovative document solutions -- all backed by award-winning service. Today, RJ Young is the fifth largest independent dealer of its kind and has been recognized by Office Dealer magazine as one of the country's 50 Best Office Equipment Dealers. RJ Young prides itself in partnering with the best copier and software providers in the world and saw the power of the Intellivue cloud-based ECM software from GlobalWise as the perfect complement to their managed print copier services for the small-sized to mid-sized client.

"RJ Young is a dominant force in the markets they serve for providing exceptional office equipment hardware and software solutions," said William. J. "BJ" Santiago, CEO of GlobalWise. "With RJ Young on the team, we instantly gain access to an extensive sales force and client base throughout the Midwest. Their managed print solution powered by the Intellivuesoftware portfolio will be a great value-added sales tool to not only sell more copiers, but also provide a complete document management solution which historically was too expensive for clients of this size."

"The agreement with RJ Young also represents a new method for GlobalWise to find the right partners with the right approach to selling ECM services," concluded Mr. Santiago. "The integration of the Intellivue software into the copier and multi-function printer eco-system provides a new revenue source for a 'Per Click Charge' to scan, archive, index and inventory documents in addition to the traditional per page charged for copies in color or black and white. This is a great addition to RJ Young's product line-up, provides a fantastic value-added service for their clients and gives GlobalWise access to a strategic sales force and client base to work with."
