NDR Installs First i-Concierge Terminal at Crossroads Bellevue

BELLEVUE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 24, 2005 -- NDR, an e-media company, today announced the launch of its first interactive concierge service at Crossroads Shopping Center in Bellevue, Wash. NDR i-Concierge™ is a personalized and fully interactive concierge service that helps consumers find exactly what they need at shopping centers.

"Unlike the current static mall directories that exist today, NDR i-Concierge™ will radically change the shopping experience for consumers and help mall owners build customer loyalty while increasing sales," said Jeff Nellans, president and CEO, NDR. "Consumers will be able to learn about sales and promotions at their favorite stores, view movie trailers and find out more about local events.

Additional features, available early next year, include purchasing movie tickets and mall gift cards, customer loyalty registration, search engine, advertising console and RFID technology.

"NDR has created a fun, innovative and intuitive interactive way to get information -- it is especially appealing because it provides necessary information while at the same time enhancing the customer's shopping experience," said Ron Sher, managing partner, Crossroads Bellevue. "People seem to be intrigued with the new terminals -- they have been checking out promotions and coupons and browsing everything from movie times to local events."
