Virtual Ed Link Announces Product Enhancement to Protect Schools and Students

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - July 16, 2008) - Virtual Ed Link, Inc. (VELI) (PINKSHEETS: VRED), licensed marketer and provider of the School and College Safety Management System (SSMS and CSMS) is pleased to announce the product launch of Version 2.0, its proprietary platform designed and installed to provide a culture of preparedness for school populations across the U.S.

This enhanced technology is the result of a joint effort by VELI and the beta test site schools, who have worked with the company since last year while participating in the upgrade through review, testing, and suggestions to make it the premier campus safety solution on the market today.

During the AACC conference in Philadelphia this past spring, company representatives had the opportunity to meet officials from Institutes of Higher Learning, many of whom had attended the Princeton University April Seminar hosted by IACLEA (International Association of College Law Enforcement Administrators). The theme at Princeton, "A Blueprint for Safer Campuses," represents suggested crisis management architecture that VELI management's foresight had already built into the VELI solution from its inception. Now, the new release of 2.0 provides increased throughput speed, ease of navigation, a leading-edge emergency notification capability, and a record management component that will ease college preparation of the required Clery Act Reports and other legislatively mandated reports that soon will be required in the new Higher Education Act that's ready for congressional passage. The Act will mandate the establishment of campus emergency plans with guidelines that closely match the comprehensive solution VELI provides.

In response to queries from school administrators Virtual Ed Link, in conjunction with the Clements Group, marketing the CSMS to community colleges across the U.S., will host another in the series of free -- no obligation webinars on Tuesday, August 5th at 2PM EDT. Details and registration are available on the VELI website

Dr. Alan McCartney, COO of Virtual Ed Link, said, "The Clements Group, which serves over 800 Technical and Community Colleges in the U.S., does not often endorse products and services, but they believe our safety solution provides a critical resource for the institutions they represent and are urging them to attend the webinar."
