VMS to Provide Surveillance Solutions to Quick-Service Japanese Restaurant Leader, Sarku Japan

Digital Profit Protection Meets Quick-Service Sushi

TOMS RIVER, NJ--(Marketwire - March 3, 2008) - Visual Management Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: VMSY), a leading digital surveillance company based in Toms River, N.J., is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Sarku Japan, the largest Japanese quick-service food chain in the U.S., to develop and provide the corporate restauranteur networked CCTV systems for remote management and loss prevention. The terms of the agreement call for Sarku Japan to purchase integrated VMS digital surveillance systems for each location to be installed and maintained by Visual Management Systems (VMS) in a phased footprint wide rollout. As part of the relationship VMS will integrate its GoVye™ series DVR and camera systems into Sarku's new Electronic Cash Register (ECR) system. VMS developers worked with Uniwell, the ECR provider, to build a customized cash register interface and video overlay for use in more than 140 of Sarku Japan's locations.

Sarku Japan is an industry leader in the Japanese quick-service category, being the first on the scene to deliver high quality, health-conscious Japanese meals at an affordable price in shopping malls, airport food courts and stand-alone locations nationwide. The restaurant chain is growing in popularity as it revolutionizes Japanese fast food in America. As a result of its continued growth, Sarku Japan has advanced security and loss prevention needs and preemptively has sought VMS's assistance rather than waiting to fall victim to losses caused by poor productivity and theft.

VMS will install its digital video recorder (DVR) systems with custom register interfaces into Sarku locations across the U.S. The systems will be actively managed by Sarku's Loss Prevention managers from their corporate headquarters. The cameras and registers work together to help managers improve worker productivity, customer service and reduce the threat of theft. Any data that is entered into the ECR is duplicated in a "virtual receipt" format, processed on the video screen and recorded by the GoVye recorder. All details of the transactions appear on the recorded security video and the data and video can be searched together.

"The greatest opportunities for VMS occur when we work with an industry-leading client like Sarku to produce an application that has such a meaningful impact on their business. It promotes cooperation between the customer, VMS and third party sources -- in this case, Uniwell -- to develop new solutions to the problems that nag businesses everywhere. It's the technology equivalent to curing business's greatest cancers," said VMS CEO, Jason Gonzalez.
