PCS LabMentors Announces Agreement With RKON Technologies

BOISE, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 9, 2006 -- PCS LabMentors, Ltd., a division of PCS Edventures! (OTCBB: PCSV), today announced a significant upgrade of its infrastructure including hardware, software and data center services. The upgrade was implemented on November 1, 2006 to the new infrastructure and was successfully completed without any major issues.

The new infrastructure was required due to PCS LabMentors' web-based lab product's increasing demand. "We are probably going to significantly increase our revenue this year and adding the additional capacity and further planned improvements will enable us to scale on demand while maintaining the same quality of service for our valued customers," said Joseph Khoury, President of PCS LabMentors. He added, "The rollout of our new infrastructure went off without a hitch because we have a very skilled technical team spearheading the implementation, and we have partnered with an equally talented organization in RKON technologies to get the job done right." He went on to say, "Anytime you undertake to commit to wholesale migration of infrastructure as we have, while remaining in business and without any major issues, you have to look at your team and realize what a tremendous job they have performed."

PCS LabMentors has been working with RKON since July 2006 and is currently planning more changes and upgrades on all levels. John R. McCreary, VP Strategic Accounts and Managed Services for RKON, said, "We are very excited to be working with PCS LabMentors. They have a couple crucial elements required in business: A very robust and effective product and knowledgeable, personable staff to support it. We have found their people great to work with."
