Rapid announces commercial release of RapidOps(TM)

    HOUSTON, April 21 /CNW/ - Rapid Solutions Corporation (TSX-V: RPD)
announced the commercial release of RapidOps(TM) software. RapidOps delivers
critical operating procedures, safe operating conditions ("SOC") and
condition-based analysis to the point of need location in process intensive
    RapidOps(TM) represents a breakthrough solution designed to eliminate
defects through a technology based, disciplined approach to SOC's and
procedures. Users of RapidOps lower their production unit costs through higher
reliability, achieved through a reduction in unscheduled down time caused by
defects and unplanned maintenance and repair.
    RapidOps(TM) was developed in conjunction with a major chemical producer
dedicated to the proactive capture and elimination of equipment defects.

    RapidOps(TM) is an integrated system that features:

    -   Delivery of SOC's and procedures to tagged critical process points
        via handheld device;
    -   Condition based predictive trending through data capture and
        analysis - a strong complement to preventive maintenance programs;
    -   Consequences of deviation and planned corrective action vs. more
        costly reactive maintenance and repair.

    "This is the first solution of its kind that ties rounds and checklists
in the field directly to operating procedures and SOC information while
capturing trends for predictive maintenance programs," commented John Lindsey,
Executive Vice President of Rapid. "There is a strong correlation between
proactive identification of defects and fewer incidents. In the current
economic climate, plant operators need to see investment returns at the high
end of the scale and RapidOps is uniquely positioned to deliver."
