RenoWorks Teams with giantLEAP™ to Expand US Distribution Network

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - June 14, 2005) - RenoWorks Software (TSX VENTURE:RW), a leader in visualization software announced today it will partner with giantLEAP™ Inc., a technology services company specializing in the mobile working needs of the home improvement industry. The agreement enables giantLEAP to distribute the RenoWorks Software throughout the United States.

RenoWorks was founded on the belief that homeowners are more comfortable making buying decisions when they can see what the finished project will look like. The company's "Picture the Difference" software allows homeowners to see exterior products such as windows, doors, siding and roofing on a digital image of their own home. The easy to use, interactive software shows high-quality digital images of what a finished renovation can look like before work even begins.

RenoWorks will provide giantLEAP's customers a strong visualization tool that complements their salesbuddy™ sales tool. giantLEAP introduced salesbuddy™, the world's first point-of-sale estimating and ordering service for replacement products in February 2005. giantLEAP designed salesbuddy in its current form for replacement window sales. It will adapt the system for other product segments - such as doors, siding and roofing - beginning in late 2005.

"Our visualization software helps contractors improve closing rates, increase up-selling and decrease cancellations," said Greg Martineau, RenoWorks' founder and CEO. "We are excited to be part of the giantLEAP group of offerings."

"Providing RenoWorks as an element of the salesbuddy offering is part of our larger strategy to create a complete solution for our end users," explained Patricia Keljik, giantLEAP's founder and CEO. "By creating a suite of valuable tools that are all functionally and technologically integrated with salesbuddy, we believe our customers have the best possible sales, measuring, order-fulfillment and organizational solution available," added Keljik.
