Visual Management Systems Named to SDM's Annual Top Systems Integrator Report for Second Year in a Row

Revenue Growth Elevates VMS Thirteen Spots in One Year

TOMS RIVER, NJ--(Marketwire - July 16, 2008) - Visual Management Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: VMSY) ("VMS"), a leading digital surveillance company based in Toms River, N.J., announced today it has been named to SDM Magazine's Annual Top Systems Integrators report for the second year in a row. The SDM report is a nationwide index of the 100 largest systems integrators in the security industry. SDM ranks integrators on an annual revenue basis; together, the top 100 integrators recognized nearly $8 billion last year. VMS ranked seventy-eighth this year, up from ninety-first in 2007.

"Last year we were excited to be included among the SDM Annual Top Systems Integrators for the first time in company history," said Jason Gonzalez, CEO of VMS. "It's a great achievement, but this year making the report wasn't enough. We set a goal a year ago to significantly improve our ranking, and we certainly accomplished that."

SDM Magazine is a monthly publication with a circulation of over 28,000 that targets integrators and distributors of security technology. Each year, it releases an analysis of the integration market, including the SDM Annual Top Systems Integrators rankings. The index evaluates "businesses that derive more than half of their revenue from the sale, design/engineering, installation and service of multi-technology electronic security systems, such as access control and identification, video surveillance, alarms, perimeter security, and other network-based technologies."

"It speaks volumes that we are among the youngest companies in the top 100," added Mr. Gonzalez. "Our achievement is particularly impressive considering we derive almost all our revenue from video surveillance, while across the board other integrators recognize only a fraction of their revenue from video. Couple that with our plans for the future, and it's hard not to be excited about where we're heading."
