Intura Solutions Launches $1 Million Free POS Software Giveaway

Giveaway Extends Over Several Restaurant Industry Trade Shows in 2007

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 19, 2007 -- Intura Solutions, LP (Intura), a leading supplier of point-of-sale (POS) and business management software for quick service, fast casual and delivery restaurant concepts, today announced the start of a promotion to give away over 1,000 licenses of the Intura Vision POS software valued at approximately $1 million.

Beginning March 20, 2007, Intura will start giving away licenses of the Intura Vision software to qualified restaurant owners at the International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas. The giveaway will continue at the SW Foodservice Expo in Dallas, the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo in Los Angeles, the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show in Orlando and will conclude with the Northeast Pizza Show in Atlantic City on September 13th, 2007.

"The Intura $1 Million Free Software Giveaway is an unprecedented opportunity for restaurant owners to implement advanced POS software and take advantage of features that help build sales, decrease costs and improve operational efficiency," stated Gary W. Peek II, president of Intura. "We look forward to meeting new customers at the launch event at our booth (# 1525) at the International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas this week."

Intura Vision is a powerful and reliable POS and restaurant management system that streamlines every aspect of restaurant operations including order taking, credit card processing, kitchen management, deliveries, inventory, management reporting and customer marketing. For restaurant organizations that are trying to manage multiple locations and franchisees, Intura Enterprise is a corporate communications portal and data warehouse that provides business operations decision support and disaster recovery all in one affordable package. Intura Enterprise provides individual, consolidated and comparative management reports by seamlessly connecting multiple restaurants using the Intura Vision POS solution.

"Intura is making a thunderous statement with this promotion! When we heard about their plans for the Intura $1 Million Free Software Giveaway, we were completely blown away," stated Michael Usbelger, president of Merchant Services Network (MSN). "What a fabulous opportunity for restaurant owners to make the switch to a state-of-the-art POS system. We are extremely pleased and excited to be partnered with Intura in this giveaway."

In order to offer a complete package, MSN is adding free credit card processing software for those restaurant owners who activate a new merchant account with MSN within the allotted time frame. In addition, MSN will not charge any setup fees and will not charge monthly maintenance fees (such as statement fees) during the term of the merchant contract. The only costs for the restaurant owner will be those fees incurred directly through the processing of credit and debit transactions. MSN has a booth (#1523) adjacent to Intura at the International Pizza Show in Las Vegas; so restaurant owners only need to make one stop at the show to get it all.

"MSN is our valued partner in merchant services and we are very excited to have them join us in the Intura $1 Million Free Software Giveaway," continued Peek. "MSN stepped up in a big way to make this a historic offer that has not been seen in the restaurant industry before. When you add MSN's promotional offer to Intura's giveaway, the total value is almost $2 million!"

Each license of the Intura Vision POS software is valued at $995 and the giveaway is limited to one license per business entity located in the United States. The details and official rules of the Intura giveaway can be found at www.intura.com/giveaway.
