Bill Pay Kiosks at Denver Airport

Info Touch Technologies Launches Cricket Bill Pay Service at Denver International Airport

BURNABY, BC, Aug. 24 /CNW/ - Info Touch Technologies Corp.
( (IFT: TSX Venture Exchange) announced a new distribution
point for its automated self-serve bill pay services at 32 "Shibby Branded"
kiosks at the Denver International Airport. The kiosks are co-owned and
operated by RHMES Communications of Denver, CO and Kiosk Information Systems
of Louisville CO.
Powered by Info-Touch's industry leading Surfnet Premiere software, the
kiosks will enable airport employees and air travelers to pay their Cricket
wireless bills in cash and/or credit card as well as other post paid bill
payment and financial services applications. Payments by check are expected to
follow soon afterwards.
The stakeholders of the project expect to derive revenues from the
convenience fees paid by consumers in order to pay their Cricket or other
bills of their choice. All applications will be available in Spanish and
"We're always looking for new ways to enhance our customers' experience,"
said Tom Williams, area general manager for Cricket. "With self-serve bill
pay, we're providing another easy and convenient payment option. We look
forward to being part of this growing technology focused on serving our
President and CEO Rick Malone said, "The Denver Airport is the fifth
busiest airport in the US and is an ideal location for this sort of
application due to its approximately 23,000 employees. Also, new low-cost
carriers have changed the demographic of air travel and we believe that the
Shibby terminals at DIA are a compelling opportunity for bill payment
"There is a growing demand for alternative modes of payment amongst
approximately 30% of America's population who fall within the 'unbanked' or
'underbanked' demographic, as they may not have a bank / credit card account
or prefer cash to other methods of payment," said Hamed Shahbazi, CEO of Info
Touch Technologies Corp. "Shibby is a great example of the Company's 'indirect
distribution' model where IFT can leverage its software application and
monetization program without funding new kiosk infrastructure."
