Virtual Ed Link Solution and the Northeastern Regional Information Center Focus on Implementations to New York State School Districts

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - September 28, 2009) - Virtual Ed Link, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VRED) -- Dr. Alan McCartney, Chief Operating Officer, and VRED management have begun sales and marketing campaigns heavily focused on 2009 implementations of the Safety and Security Management System (SSMS).

The initial campaigns will focus directly on the 140 school districts in the 12 county geographical area covered by the Northeastern Regional Information Center (NERIC). This region offers a potential of 174,276 users and annual revenues of $784,235 for the basic SSMS service alone, excluding add-on services.

NERIC and VRED management are currently meeting with these New York school districts and have targeted a goal of serving 100,000 students for implementation in 2009.

In addition to the joint marketing being conducted with NERIC, VRED will be presenting the Safety and Security Management System this weekend in Rochester NY at the Council of New York State Superintendents Fall Leadership Summit. The Leadership Summit will have over 400 District Superintendents in attendance and will provide VRED with the opportunity to demonstrate the product and begin the sales process with school districts throughout all of New York State.

Lastly, VRED has contracted with Broadblast Communications Inc. of Delmar, NY as an authorized sales agent for distribution of the product suite.
