Interlink Celebrates Earth Day by Releasing ePad™-vision: A Green Solution With Capabilities Beyond eSignature Capture

In Addition to Capturing Legally-Binding Esignatures, the Portable ePad-vision Displays Full-Color Images, Facilitates Cross-Selling, and Enables Customer Data Capture

CAMARILLO, CA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2009) - Interlink Electronics, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: LINK) has chosen Earth Day to celebrate the addition of ePad-vision to its robust ePad Family. ePad-vision enables businesses to capture legally-binding handwritten electronic signatures in customer-facing processes, thereby supporting green initiatives and decreasing corporate costs associated with managing paper-based transactions, such as: printing, routing, and storing hard copy documents. With advanced, innovative capabilities never before seen at this price point, ePad-vision goes beyond esignature capture by providing a paperless, cost-effective way to display full-color ads, scrolling compliance and affirmation text, and selectable onscreen options.

"ePad-vision is the most sophisticated esignature capture device available on the market today. It truly redefines what customers should expect from an electronic signature solution," explains Rod Vesling, Senior Vice President and Officer for eTransactions at Interlink. "The sleek, contemporary design coupled with the color screen and advanced functionality of the ePad-vision also make it a great addition to Interlink's eSign Anywhere™ Platform."

What differentiates ePad-vision is a broad range of unique capabilities that include:

--  Brilliant-color, large LCD screen;
--  Portability for customer-facing applications in-house and on-the-road;
--  Ability to display targeted marketing messages;
--  Modification of display parameters without the help of IT staff;
--  Presentation of compliance and affirmation text that ensures customers
    make informed decisions;
--  Support of check boxes and response buttons that enable Interlink's
    clients to collect information and present actionable offers to their
    customers.
    

"ePad-vision is an industry-first solution," adds Mr. Vesling. "With its far-reaching functionality, IntegriSign® Desktop software, and low total cost of ownership... it's a must-have ePad!"

Unique ePad-vision Features/Benefits

Like all members of Interlink's ePad Family, ePad-vision is stellar at capturing legally-binding and secure electronic signatures. But ePad-vision goes one step further: it is changing the feature-functionality expected from signature capture devices.

More Than an ePad; It's an Ad Pad

The high-quality, large color LCD screen of ePad-vision enables display of rotating marketing messages, tailored esignature background images, promotional offers, and invitations to enroll in special programs. By taking advantage of onscreen real estate, businesses can increase on-the-spot sales closures and generate additional revenues. Green Impact: Reduces the need for printed marketing materials.

Screen Customization by Non-IT Staff

The ePad-vision is the first esignature device that lets the business process owner -- not just the IT department -- modify specific display parameters. Changes to background images, screen savers, compliance and affirmation text, marketing slicks, and esignature color & thickness can all be managed quickly and easily. For the IT staff, ePad-vision comes with a .Net assembly and COM Software Develop Kit (SDK). Green Impact: Updates can be made in-field, minimizing the need to ship the device or have IT staff travel to branch locations.

Future Proof Your Investment

Interlink's hardware and software solutions work in tandem to provide secure eprocesses, no matter how your esignature project evolves. ePad-vision comes bundled with IntegriSign Desktop software, which securely and permanently binds the esignature to the document. Any attempt to tamper with the document will be detected, rendering the signature visibly invalid. ePad-vision is also compatible with software upgrades to IntegriSign Pro and IntegriSign Emcee, Interlink's document presentation and esigning server solutions. Green Impact: No need to discard ePad-vision when projects evolve -- ePad-vision grows with you.

Low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

ePad-vision provides powerful functionality, at the right price. The passive stylus makes it easy to apply an esignature from any angle, and does not render the ePad device inoperable should it go missing. Both the stylus and signing surface overlay can be easily and inexpensively replaced in-field, and firmware upgrades can be made electronically from a distance. Green Impact: ePad-vision provides true overall value, reduces usage of printed materials, decreases the need for shipping or travel, and maintains a long, productive lifespan.
