Q Comm International Announces New Partnership With Home Dial Tone Provider; System Integration Brings Q Comm's Services to Vertex Communications, Inc. Merchants.

OREM, Utah -- Q Comm International, Inc. (Amex: QMM; QMM.WS), a provider of prepaid transaction processing and electronic point-of-sale (POS) distribution solutions, today announced that it will provide its suite of prepaid products and services to Vertex Communications, Inc., a Walhalla, South Carolina-based provider of prepaid local residential and long distance telephone services. Vertex distributes its services through roughly 600 merchants who link to the Company's state of the art Web Site and Customer Call Center. Vertex merchants can now sell Q Comm's prepaid wireless products through a successful processing system integration between Q Comm and Vertex, which provides the benefits of Q Comm solutions via an existing web-based platform.

"Today's announcement is a great example of just how flexible our technology can be," stated Mike Keough, President and Chief Executive Officer of Q Comm International. "We are enabling all 600 Vertex merchants to benefit from the revenue generation, sales management and repeat customer business associated with our prepaid suite of products - and we are doing it through their existing host system and web interface, not through a dial-up terminal."

Q Comm's flexible delivery architecture was easily adapted to Vertex's existing, proprietary transaction processing platform, so merchants without a POS terminal can still benefit from Q Comm's prepaid products and services. Merchants also benefit from immediacy, since Q Comm's integration with Vertex allows merchants to sell Q Comm's prepaid products on the platform they are already using, without training on a new system.

Brent Saxon, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vertex said, "Vertex is a leader in the prepaid home phone service industry as a result of our proprietary web based customer order entry system. We were looking for a partner who offered interface services so we could sell their products through our platform. Q Comm's outstanding reputation in the prepaid products industry coupled with their ability to provide the products through integration into the Vertex platform was a major factor in our decision to do business with them." Saxon continued, "The partnership between Vertex and Q Comm will allow our Agents to offer the leading prepaid products available on the market today and will satisfy the goals of both companies to provide exceptional service to our customers."
