Microsoft Partner Program IMPACT Awards honour Microsoft's Canadian technology partners and their commitment to customer satisfaction

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 24, 2006) - Radio Beacon Inc., an Accellos company announced that it has been selected as a finalist in the ISV Solution of the Year category at the 2006 Microsoft Partner Program IMPACT Awards. The fourth annual Microsoft Partner Program IMPACT Awards acknowledge the exceptional work technology partners in Canada are doing with Microsoft-based technologies and software to deliver innovative solutions and unmatched value to their customers.

"Each year, technology partners continue to raise the bar in technology innovation and reaffirm their ability to deliver specific solutions that help meet customer demand," said Lora Gernon, Director, Partner Group, Microsoft Canada Co. "The 2006 finalists demonstrated strong expertise in a diversity of markets and the Microsoft Partner Program IMPACT Awards celebrate the innovative solutions they developed to help drive real business growth."

Prior to its October acquisition by Accellos, Inc., Radio Beacon Inc. was chosen as a finalist in the ISV Solution of the Year category for helping RMP Athletic Locker to rethink its warehousing methods in order to become a leader in its market in customer service and order fulfillment speed. After installing RADIO BEACON WMS, RMP was able to double their order volume with the same number of staff. Automating their warehouse processes eliminated data entry errors and allowed them to efficiently manage their more than 250,000 different product codes.

"We are extremely honored to receive this recognition of our commitment to providing our customers more innovation in their warehouse for less total investment," said Ross Elliott, CTO, Accellos Inc. "Customers deserve powerful logistics solutions that provide immediate efficiencies. We are dedicated to supporting innovative companies like RMP Athletic Locker in their quest for continual improvement and new competitive advantages through warehouse automation."

Radio Beacon, along with other Microsoft technology partner winners and finalists in each of the award categories, will be honored at a gala event in Toronto, Ontario on November 2, 2006.
