Hays County, TX Contracts With Brookside to Implement New Communications System Technology

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - July 13, 2010) -  Brookside Technology Holdings Corp. (OTCBB: BKSD) is pleased to announce that the government offices of Hays County, Texas, have recently agreed to deploy an all new communications technology system in a partnership with Brookside's Southwest Regional office, Austin-based Brookside Technology Partners. This decision comes after several months of identifying opportunities to significantly improve the County's existing 17-year-old systems, researching and comparing available options, and ultimately choosing a networked system of Mitel platforms throughout the eight buildings that serve most of the County's 850 employees who engage with a population base expected to exceed 150,000 based on the 2010 Census.

Among the needs for a change in provider and equipment were the excessive monthly costs for outdated technology, the inability of the various offices to communicate internally in a cost-efficient manner, and the desire to update the complex directory of county officials to make the system infinitely more accessible to County residents. "After learning much about the deficiencies, pain points, and needs of Hays County, Brookside, in conjunction with Mitel, architected a comprehensive solution that addressed each of these concerns," said George Pacinelli, President of Brookside. Pacinelli continued, "Ultimately, these efforts will deliver a cost effective, feature rich communication solution that both the employees and residents of Hays County deserve."

"What I want to emphasize is that with this action, we are going to save the County money -- big dollars -- and get better service for all County employees, while at the same time, making it easier for the citizens of Hays County to phone the right County officials," Hays County Precinct 2 Commissioner Jeff Barton (D-Kyle) said recently. "So it really is a 'three-for,' in that sense. We'll be (1) saving money, (2) getting more productivity in the long run, and (3) making it easier for the citizens of Hays County to get information and services from their County government. I believe Brookside refers to that as 'Telefficiency™.'"
