Virtual Ed Link Provides Update on Recent Developments and Company Growth

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - September 22, 2010) -  Virtual Ed Link, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VRED)  Virtual Ed Link, the provider of quality and affordable safety and security services to school districts, provided an update today on recent company developments and sales and revenue growth. 

The current 2009-2010 school year marks an important milestone for Virtual Ed Link as the year the company's products were first released to the market and initial revenues were generated. Additionally Virtual Ed has established its core markets and business models and has laid the groundwork for a "breakout" year in the 2010-2011 school year.

Last school year the company successfully brought to market its School Safety Management System (SSMS), with its initial product sales going to school districts in New York and New Jersey. These contracts for Virtual Ed's anchor installations, the NERIC BOCES in Albany, New York and the Borough of Roselle, New Jersey, have already been renewed. Additionally over 42 schools in New York State have budgeted Virtual Ed's product into the upcoming school year totaling over $500,000 in projected revenue. New Jersey schools have been awarded grants which have been earmarked for the SSMS which is estimated to provide over $600,000 in revenues for the upcoming school year. These revenue projections do not include any partner contributions from New Jersey School Board Association Insurance Group (NJSBAIG), NY State BOCES, or Bullzi Security.

In recent months Virtual Ed's product offering has increased significantly to include a variety of new innovative eLearning courses from WISE, the Adult and Child Versions of Internet Safety, as well as 13 additional courses. The SSMS now also contains the physical security management dashboard and access control with camera interfaces. It is the first service offering to integrate communications, informational and physical security components into one seamless environment. The company has also increased the scope and breadth of its service offering, while making it easier to procure and implement its new Internet-friendly "Freemium Price Model." Virtual Ed is also branching out into the field of maritime security. This past summer the company displayed its prototypes at the Posidonia Show in Athens, Greece for the world's shipping and cruise industries.

This recent expansion in product and service offerings has caught the eye of several state agencies as well as the Department of Homeland Security, and local law enforcement agencies. The company hopes to provide further updates on these developments very soon.

"I am extremely encouraged by the steady progress we continue to make, and especially by these very important steps we have taken to continue growing our company," stated John Bay, President and CEO of Virtual Ed Link. "Our management team is genuinely committed to building a great company and creating considerable long term value for our shareholders. The fact that some key agencies are now taking notice of our products and services may bode very well for our continued future growth as we tap into new markets. I expect to make some additional announcements very soon on further initiatives we are taking, including changes in our corporate structure and in our future management team."
