TIO Networks and WorkWireless to Provide Bill Payment Services to Wireless Dealer Marketplace



    "TIO bill payment service to be integrated into the industry-leading
    WorkWireless Retail Management System which is used by thousands of
    wireless dealer stores"

    BURNABY, BC and CHARLOTTE, NC, Jan. 17 /CNW/ - TIO Networks Corp., North
America's leading automated bill payment and non-bank financial network
(TSX-V: TNC) and Work Software Systems, the leading provider of Retail
Management Systems to the Wireless dealer marketplace today announced an
agreement where TIO's bill payment processing services will be made available
directly from the WorkWireless RMS solution which is currently used by
thousands of wireless dealer locations.
    Work Software Systems will utilize TIO's Application Programming
Interface (API) to process bill payment transactions with TIO's direct biller
portfolio directly from the WorkWireless RMS Solution. This means that
WorkWireless agents will not require any additional hardware or software in
order to process time sensitive TIO bill payments.
    Once TIO bill pay is integrated with the WorkWireless RMS, WorkWireless
agents need only sign a processing agreement with TIO and they can start
taking payments with minimal training and setup. TIO's direct biller portfolio
features expedited posting times, convenient look-up functionality and secure
posting features.
    "We are excited to work with TIO to deliver their services directly to
our clients through the WorkWireless RMS" said Bill May, President of Work
Software Systems. "We are focused on providing our clients with the ability to
process all of their point of sale transactions through WorkWireless and
integrating with a market leader like TIO is a big part of that strategy."
    "We are delighted to work with one of the leading POS software solutions
in the wireless dealer industry" said Hamed Shahbazi, CEO of TIO Networks
Corp. "Having TIO bill pay directly integrated into the POS makes it much
easier for wireless dealers to implement and manage their bill pay business."
