Nortel Government Solutions Selects VIQ Solutions for U.S. Department Of Justice, Executive Office For Immigration Review Digital Recording Implementation

    Encompass, CourtFLOW solutions will be installed in approximately
    375 locations.

    MARKHAM, ON, Oct. 12 /CNW/ - VIQ Solutions Inc. ("VIQ", "VIQ Solutions"
or the "Corporation") (TSX Venture: VQS) announced today that the Corporation
has been selected by Nortel Government Solutions(*), a U.S. company wholly owned
by Nortel(*) (NYSE/TSX: NT), to provide Digital Recording software for the
United States Department of Justice, Executive Office for Immigration Review
("EOIR"). In September 2004, Nortel Government Solutions was awarded the
contract for the project, known as eWorld, to build a new system for
streamlining the immigration review appeals process.
    The project calls for VIQ to provide a complete digital audio recording
solution for approximately 375 EOIR fixed and portable locations across the
United States. Higdon Inc., a long-standing, value-added reseller of the
Corporation, will provide on-going support as required. A pilot for this
project is currently underway.
    To provide the digital audio recording and management service, VIQ's
Encompass product and enterprise-level CourtFLOW solution will be implemented
in EOIR courtrooms. Also key to the project is the ICM Tool, a proprietary
utility that interfaces third-party case management systems to the Encompass
and CourtFLOW solutions. The VIQ suite will provide EOIR with a fully
integrated digital recording solution to replace their antiquated tape-based
recording machines.
    "A reliable and secure database with case management connectivity is
critical for this project," said Roy Carter, Sector President of Enterprise
Applications and Support Sector at Nortel Government Solutions. "VIQ's product
offering addresses our need for a robust and proven solution, and is ideally
suited for a project of this magnitude."
    "We are extremely pleased that Nortel Government Solutions recognized
VIQ's experience and expertise related to integrated digital recording
solutions," said David Outhwaite, President and CEO of VIQ Solutions. "We
believe this partnership will provide EOIR with a feature-rich solution that
effectively addresses their unique digital recording requirements," added Mr.
