DIGI INTERNATIONAL DIVISION ANNOUNCES PARTNERS IN CONNECTIVITY PROGRAM

Co-operative Development and Marketing Program is Designed to Foster
 Greater Customer Satisfaction with Networking Products
 MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- DigiBoard, a division of Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII), announced the formation of the Partners in Connectivity Program designed to facilitate cooperation between manufacturers who provide products that are compatible and interoperable with DigiBoard products. DigiBoard is the leading provider of connectivity solutions for multiuser microcomputer and networked systems.
 Because DigiBoard's products are compatible with a wide range of solutions, the company is in a unique position to lead other manufacturers toward a more heterogeneous market. The Partners in Connectivity Program offers members five major advantages:
 1. Partner Purchase Program -- members are allowed deep discounts of up to 70 percent off the list price on DigiBoard hardware and software for sales demonstrations and evaluation units.
 2. Beta Partner Program -- members may become Authorized Beta Test Sites for DigiBoard products and conversely, DigiBoard will serve as an Authorized Beta Test Site for members' products.
 3. Partner Loan Program -- DigiBoard equipment and graphics are being made available for members use at trade shows, seminars and other events.
 4. Specialized Support -- the DigiBoard PartnerLink is a new service tailored to meeting the technical and marketing support needs of the Partners.
 5. Tailored Marketing Programs -- numerous new marketing support programs have been developed to aid members in gaining visibility for their products. These programs include:
 -- Third Party Compatibility Guide -- listing of hardware and software products that are compatible with DigiBoard products.
 -- Partnership Planning Meetings -- (twice a year).
 -- SMART CONNECTIONS -- monthly bulletin of product and technical information.
 -- Joint use of mailing lists for Direct Mail and Rebate offers and Cooperative Advertising incentives.
 -- Trade show support.
 -- Logo and maps of the show floor listing members' booths.
 "We believe this program will provide an advantage to both members and consumers of the technology," said Joe Diodati, director of marketing and strategic planning at DigiBoard. "By bringing manufacturers together in this spirit of cooperation, we hope to create a high level of customer satisfaction with DigiBoard products as well as compatible vendor offerings."
