Juma Technology Corp Helps St. John's University Heighten Campus Safety

Campus-Wide Paging System Adds Additional Layer of Security

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) - Juma Technology Corp (OTCBB: JUMT), a systems integration firm specializing in converged communications, recently helped St. John's University to enhance campus safety with the implementation of a comprehensive campus-wide public address system.

St. John's University relied on Juma to design and implement the amplified paging system throughout its Queens, Staten Island, and Manhattan, NY campuses; an addition that further strengthens the college's capabilities to effectively communicate with students, faculty and staff. The new system, which consists of nearly 365 speakers campus-wide, provides the University with the ability to broadcast audio announcements across campus in the event of an emergency.

"By partnering with Juma to implement a public address system, we've added yet another layer of security here at St. John's University," said Joseph Tufano, Chief Information Officer for St. John's University. "As we know from experience, effective communication is fundamental to ensuring the safety of our campus community in the event of an emergency. We now have the ability to broadcast real-time announcements to every corner of the campus and guarantee that everyone on our premises is alerted and kept informed instantaneously."

"The Juma team has proven to be a valued partner for us here at St. John's University and we are now looking to expand our working relationship to continue raising the bar on campus safety," said Tufano.

"The campus-wide paging system deployed at St. John's University has helped to heighten the level of emergency preparedness and increase the realm of protection on campus," said John Johnson, Juma's Director of Infrastructure Services. "With Juma's campus safety and communications solutions, we are helping colleges and universities utilize communications to make their campus a safer place to live, work and learn."

Anthony Servidio, Chief Executive Officer for Juma Technology Corp, welcomed St. John's University to the company's rapidly growing client roster. "We are pleased to add this prestigious center of learning to our growing client base and to provide St. John's University with an additional level of campus security. The new paging system provides enhanced safety to the students and faculty, and a greater level of comfort to their families."

The campus-wide paging system utilizes the Bogen Communications amplified paging products. The paging system was integrated with the school's existing MIR3 mass notification text messaging system.
