Grey Island Receives $500K Contract Extension from Alberta Transportation



    TORONTO, Nov. 20 /CNW Telbec/ - Grey Island Systems (TSX VENTURE: GIS)
announced today that the company has received a contract extension with
Alberta Transportation, for Grey Island's InterFleet automatic vehicle
location system (AVL), until May 2009 for a total value of approximately
$500K. The system was recognized in the 2007 Ministers Award of Excellence for
Transportation Innovation and helps track and manage approximately 650
contracted winter road maintenance vehicles in the province of Alberta.
    Among the project's major innovations is the integration of the space,
time and vehicle operations data with billings systems and processes to
generate automated snow-plow worksheets for contracted winter road maintenance
activities.
    Brian Boychuk, Executive Vice President for Grey Island said, "Alberta
Transportation's use of the technology for the automation of billing for
outsourced contracting operations is forward-thinking among its peers. For
Grey Island, it showcases our demonstrated ability to tailor the InterFleet
application to specific client needs while leveraging our strength in road
maintenance applications."
