Original Press Release:



Vivonet Inc. Introduces Halo Retail POS (Point of Sale), an 'All-in-One' Cashiering and Payment Processing Solution for Small to Midsize Retailers



LAS VEGAS, April 17 /-- Vivonet today unveiled Halo Retail at the Electronic Transaction Association annual meeting and expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, further strengthening Halo as the leader in secure web-based POS and payment processing.

Halo Retail is a complete easy-to-use solution designed to replace the antiquated electronic cash register currently being used in 74% of all small retail operations. Designed for small and medium retailers that have been using cash registers, Halo is a compelling alternative - an all-in-one web-based touch-screen point of sale and payments system that protects retailers from security breaches, fulfills all of their payment processing needs, and gives them easy access to their critical business information from anywhere they have access to the web.

"Small and medium sized retailers finally have an affordable end-to-end solution that allows them to re-focus their energy on their core business needs to further their success rather than managing complex PC technology," said Ryan Volberg, CEO and Founder of Vivonet Inc. "The modular PC on Cash Drawer solutions currently in the market are still out of reach for the retail operators that need these tools the most. Halo Retail was designed specifically with their needs in mind including the need for affordability."

The Halo touch screen terminal is connected to the internet ensuring all department, category, and product sales performance information is automatically stored in a secure data center and easily accessible by store owners and managers from a web browser anywhere, anytime. Now even the smallest retailers can have the kind of rich historical information and business insight that was once only available to the biggest retailers - and without all the time-consuming challenges they faced managing their business with z tapes and spreadsheets.

"Halo has taken away a ton of paperwork virtually overnight, and really helped me improve my business," said Matt Wagstaffe, owner/operator of North Shore Linens and Halo Retail early adopter. "I would recommend Halo Retail to anyone using a cash register."

Halo Retail is set for general availability throughout North America in the summer of 2007 and will be sold through a channel network of Independent Sales Organizations (ISO) and Agents. More information on this program can be found at www.myhalo.com.
