Golfpac Overhauls Voucher System With Cygnus Print-at-Home

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 27, 2005 -- Cygnus eTransactions Group, Inc. (OTC: CYGT) today announced that online golf excursion planner Golfpac is implementing a print-at-home vouchering solution supplied by Cygnus. The change will reduce costly manual processes and shorten delivery time of trip vouchers.

Golfpac offers consumers access to full service golf vacation planning through their website and call center. Reservations for rental cars, hotels and tee times normally result in pre-printed vouchers that are couriered to vacationers, a practice to be significantly reduced. Consumers will now receive an email prior to departure explaining that vouchers are available for printing at home, at no cost.

"After taking the time to understand our business practices, Cygnus approached us with a very unique offering; one we were not researching at the time. Golfpac will accrue a significant savings in shipping costs and manual labor, which we can share with our consumers. To top it off, Cygnus has the technical expertise to make integration relatively easy," said Wayne Bryant, CTO at Golfpac.
