Mozes Launches New Product as Part of Mission to Deliver a Trusted and Accessible Mobile Service

Mozes Connect Enables Anyone to Create Trusted Mobile Campaigns That Work

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - Mozes, the service that connects people to what they love right from their mobile phones, today announced the launch of Mozes Connect, a web-based product available at www.mozes.com, that enables anyone to create integrated text messaging, voice and web campaigns.

"We believe the environment for mobile marketing is marred with consumer mistrust and the over-hype of mobile services that most consumers cannot use or understand," said Dorrian Porter, CEO of Mozes. "Mozes Connect enables anyone -- from a garage band to the largest brand -- to easily create mobile campaigns using a service that builds trust and consistency for campaign participants."

Over 1.5 million unique mobile users in the US and Canada have participated in a Mozes powered campaign since April 2007. Nearly 4,000 bands and 50 music industry customers use Mozes to connect with fans. Mozes customers, which include Universal Motown Republic Group, RCA Music Group, Capitol Music Group and Nettwerk Management, will gain access to the compelling new experience and feature set that Mozes Connect Platinum Edition offers. These enhancements will be generally available later this year.

Mozes Connect delivers integrated text, voice and web-based marketing campaigns. New features of the Platinum Edition include:

--  A brand new experience: Mozes has worked with its key customers to
    build highly aesthetic, easy-to-use, web-based mobile marketing tools
    within Mozes Connect.
--  Fast campaign creation tools: Create text and voice campaigns in
    seconds, build a mobile list, and engage with your fans through poll
    questions, trivia, content and more.
--  Customizable web widgets and API: Create interactive online widgets
    that integrate with your website's overall look and feel and drive
    customers to join your mobile list, or participate in your mobile
    promotion. APIs are available for deeper integration.
--  Enhanced reporting and analytics: Easily track your campaign's
    effectiveness. View participation and opt-in information by geography and
    by campaign channel (text, voice, online), and get information about your
    subscriber demographics.
--  Engage in dialogue with your audience: Manage the text and voice
    message activity sent to and from your participants. Pick a winner for your
    contests, or moderate messages as they come in during live events.
--  User administration for large organizations: Invite your employees or
    partners to use Mozes Connect on your behalf. They can then create, manage,
    or follow the success of your mobile campaigns.
