TIO Network expands with Speedway SuperAmerica LLC

Info Touch Technologies Corp. (TSX-V: IFT) today announced the deployment of 15 Speed e-connect kiosks at select Speedway SuperAmerica LLC (SSA) locations in Toledo, Ohio.

This expansion follows the successful January 2005 launch of a ‘Speed e-connect’ network in Dayton, Ohio. Through this initiative, “cash preferred” convenience store patrons now can securely and conveniently pay their bills in cash anytime at their local Speedway store. “Cash-Preferred” Speedway customers at 15 stores now have access to Bill Payment and Financial Services through computerized TIO self-service terminals

Powered by Info Touch's industry leading Premiere software, ‘Speed e-connect’ terminals provide customers with convenient access to a wide variety of services, including bill payments for wireless, utility, cable and other service providers. Bill payment services typically carry a small convenience fee for usage.

‘Speed e-connect’ terminals are affiliated with Info Touch’s TIO Network, which is currently serving customers in 22 U.S. states, Puerto Rico and British Columbia. Info Touch and SSA plan to unveil additional ‘Speed e-connect’ products and services such as money order, money transfer, prepaid credit and debit cards, check cashing and mobile content. The services will be geared toward the growing, cash-preferred market.

“SSA and Info Touch are focused on delivering a host of tangible benefits to cash preferred customers," said Hamed Shahbazi, chairman and chief executive officer, Info Touch. “Our research supports the notion that the cash preferred customers are a growing, vital and underserved demographic all over the U.S.”
