Sierra Systems Delivers Consulting Expertise to Food Services Industry

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 8, 2006) - Sierra Systems Group Inc. ("Sierra Systems") (TSX:SSG) is pleased to announce that the Company has signed contracts with two of Canada's premier food services companies to provide business consulting services.

Building on 40 years' experience in business and IT consulting, Sierra Systems will be providing services including the development of business intelligence solutions for sales, and an assessment of mission-critical systems and infrastructure in order to develop a strategic plan to support anticipated business growth and expansion.

Both organizations are anticipating rapid growth but are also experiencing issues related to their systems and key business processes required to support expansion. Sierra Systems' capabilities in business consulting, systems development, and business intelligence will help drive improvements in this supporting infrastructure.

In one case, Sierra Systems' consulting team will be developing a business intelligence "roadmap" to define the strategic objectives, business drivers, and key performance indicators that will be used to measure sales. This will be followed by a design of the eventual solution, including architecture, infrastructure, and integration with business systems.

Sierra Systems' announcement comes on the heels of its June acquisition of TkMC in Edmonton, Alberta, a move said to continue building the Company's business consulting capabilities. Carol Collins, Vice President and Vancouver Branch Manager, stated, "Sierra Systems has historically been a leader in private sector business consulting in Vancouver and across the lower mainland. We have worked with notable clients in financial services, insurance, forestry, and now food services. Both organizations that we will be working with are experiencing rapid growth and continued success in their franchise operations. We will be working closely with them to ensure an effective framework for expansion is in place."
