VisionGateway and SmartCentric Technologies to Expand Client Base With Smart Card-Based E-Business Solutions

Combined Solutions to Deliver Secure E-Business Integration With Multi-Application Smart Card Applications for Immediate Client Opportunities

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2007 -- VisionGateway, Inc. (OTCBB: VGWA), a next-generation software solutions company capitalizing on the explosive growth of Internet use worldwide, announced today that the Company has begun working with SmartCentric Technologies International Ltd, a leading global smart card solution provider, to provide an additional e-business solution to VisionGateway's growing client base. The new e-commerce solutions are intended to complement INTERScepter, the Company's core Internet Resource Management and security platform technology.

The SmartCentric solutions will bring to VisionGateway not only the latest innovative card and payment systems, but also access to a portfolio of revenue generating clients. Both companies have begun working together on immediate client opportunities in the real estate, print media and gaming industries.

Specifically, the SmartCentric solutions will also add key smartcard capabilities for VisionGateway's current clients in the Higher Education sector. By integrating SmartCentric technology, VisionGateway clients will benefit from centralized processing, easy to configure, deploy and manage services, offering increased ease of use for off-campus and city card programs.

"INTERScepter is to VisionGateway what MS Dos was to Microsoft, in that it provides an ideal platform for additional applications and capabilities for a broad range of Internet-based services," said Michael Emerson, Chief Executive Officer of VisionGateway. "Our teaming with SmartCentric is an excellent example of that comparison because adding their smartcard solutions to our already impressive list of capabilities makes our INTERScepter that much more compressive. We are fully committed to executing on our business model to create and commercialize our product in the burgeoning field of Internet Resource Management and security."

"VisionGateway's global coverage and distribution network provides us immediate growth opportunities in regions we currently do not have a presence," said SmartCentric CEO Kieran Timmins. "Further, the potential to integrate our payment and security systems into a packaged solution for specific market sectors across all regions will be investigated by both companies," he said.
