QI Systems Inc. Showcases New Technology at ISC West

QiWave™ Contactless Solution Featured at Show

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 10, 2007 -- QI Systems Inc. (OTCBB: QIII), a leading developer and integrator of contact and contactless card payment, access control and tracking solutions, announced that the company attended the International Security Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas ("ISC West") with corporate partner HID Identity™. HID Identity, introduced at ISC West, is a newly launched organization within HID Global, focusing on providing solutions and expertise that will help streamline and simplify the acquisition and issuance of access control and multi-application credentials.

At the Las Vegas exhibit, QI Systems demonstrated QiWave™ contactless payment technology designed around the HID iCLASS® card platform. QiWave contactless card readers were shown providing convenient cashless payment solutions for parking and vending applications. In addition to the products displayed, QiWave provides payment solutions for campus and university markets, as well as for the laundry and the leisure and entertainment industries.

In preparation for this conference, HID Global issued a press release announcing its next generation photo ID and ID card application software, Asure ID Exchange version 5.7, featuring iDIRECTOR™ technology. QI Systems was identified as a HID Connect™ partner, with Stephen B. Riegel, QI Systems' vice president of business development, commenting, "We are excited about the opportunities this technology brings as a distribution platform for QI Systems and other application providers." The complete press release and Mr. Riegel's full statement may be viewed on HID Global's web site.

Steven Garman, QI Systems' CEO and president, adds, "People have been attracted to the flexibility and power of iCLASS technology for years. With iDIRECTOR there is now a simple way to unlock the power of iCLASS and deploy high functioning cards that are truly multi-application. With the simultaneous release of iDIRECTOR from HID Identity and the QiWave contactless readers we have the merging of two powerful technologies. End users can now streamline card issuance and remove the cost of handling cash while using the trusted iCLASS card. As a result, we expect our partnership with HID to create significant market opportunities for QI Systems."
