CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - PREO SOFTWARE INC. (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:PKM) is pleased to announce that Mr. Christopher Brown has joined the Company as Director of Channel Sales. Mr. Brown has spent almost 10 years in the print industry, most recently with Xerox's Managed Print business, and has been involved with the MPS industry since its early days.

Mr. Brown has managed channel partners on behalf of Xerox, Kyocera and Muratec and has generated significant year over year growth in the MPS channel for these companies. He brings a structured process to channel sales and has been a key driver in building training materials, incentive programs, sales administration and processes to improve partners' success rate while reducing their time to closing sales opportunities. While at Global Imaging (a Xerox company), Mr. Brown led a project team chartered to develop a consistent, cost-effective MPS offering across all GIS operating companies.

"We are thrilled to have Chris join our team", said Gary McCone, Preo's CEO. "To be able to attract an individual like Chris is validation that we have a very interesting and significant opportunity." Mr. McCone continued "Recently, many shareholders have put their trust in our aggressive growth plans by participating in the convertible debenture financing. Hiring Chris is another step in our pursuit to rapidly escalate our sales and marketing capacity and reach."

Mr. Chris Brown said "Preo's product has a very strong value proposition for both MPS providers and end users. Preo's architecture provides significant cost, scale and ease of deployment advantages that I believe are unparalleled in the market today. I am excited to build a channel strategy that takes advantage of these compelling features to increase market share for Preo and its partners while saving money for end-user customers."
