INTERVOICE-BRITE AND 724 SOLUTIONS FORM ALLIANCE.

InterVoice-Brite has formed an alliance with 724 Solutions Inc. (Nasdaq: SVNX; Toronto: SVN) to provide an offering that makes the mobile Internet a more viable source of information and means of communication. Through a combination of InterVoice-Brite's speech portal capabilities and 724 Solutions' wireless Internet technology, the speech- enabled wireless Web is no longer a dream - it is a reality.

The combination of speech and wireless Internet technologies provides users with options to choose the most effective method for communicating and requesting or receiving information. To date, the wireless Internet has been an effective medium for receiving comprehensive information; however, its limitation has been the number of "clicks and scrolls" needed to request information. The integration of speech recognition overcomes this obstacle by allowing callers to simply speak their requests. Additionally, with proactive alerts technology, information can be sent to a customer's or subscriber's Short Message Service (SMS)- or Web-enabled wireless phone, personal digital assistant (PDA), pager or e-mail system using voice or data as appropriate.

"This alliance with 724 Solutions underscores our belief in mobile communication and information access and our support of the wireless Internet," said David Brandenburg, CEO of InterVoice-Brite. "By adding the speech recognition capabilities of our OneVoice and Omvia products to the wireless Web, a user's ability to easily access information will be increased exponentially, and people will begin enjoying the convenience the mobile Internet was created to provide."

InterVoice-Brite will web-enable its OneVoice and Omvia solutions based on 724 Solutions' alerts technology and its Wireless Internet Platform, and offer it to customers beginning later this year. As part of its multi-modal strategy announced today, 724 Solutions will be leveraging InterVoice-Brite's technology and expertise as it continues to voice-enable its suite of products.

"By integrating InterVoice-Brite network and enterprise products with our wireless transaction platform and applications, 724 Solutions will be able to create a seamless offering that makes the most of the wireless Internet regardless of what device a consumer is using, and where they are when they're using it," said Greg Wolfond, chairman, 724 Solutions. "As wireless applications become more compelling and easy to use, we believe more consumers will turn to their wireless devices to perform everyday transactions - creating a cost- effective channel that has the potential to drive transactions ."
