TeleMatrix to Provide Euro Series Guestroom Telephones to Hilton International Properties Worldwide.

Business Editors

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 13, 2000

TeleMatrix Inc., a leading provider of telecommunications products and services for the hospitality industry, Wednesday announced that it has entered into an agreement to provide its Euro Series guestroom telephones to Hilton International properties worldwide.

Under the terms of the agreement, TeleMatrix is the exclusive guestroom telephone supplier for all Hilton International properties in the United Kingdom and one of two preferred suppliers in all other regions.

Nigel Underwood, senior vice president of information technology for Hilton International, said, "We selected TeleMatrix and its Euro Series guestroom telephones for four major reasons: the Euro Series styling is aesthetically pleasing, the telephones are software driven and can be programmed quickly to work with any PBX brand, the pricing is competitive, and TeleMatrix has demonstrated a strong desire to partner with us and go the extra distance to meet our requirements."

Hilton International plans to install a mixture of single- and two-line Euro Series models worldwide in both new properties and properties undergoing renovation.

The first site to complete installation of the Euro Series phones will be the Hilton London Metropole, which is undergoing a (pound)100 million expansion that includes an additional 364 guestrooms and extensive conference and banqueting facilities. Upon completion later this year, the Hilton London Metropole will boast 1,074 guestrooms and be one of the largest conference hotels in Europe.

The London Metropole installation will be closely followed by the Hilton London Paddington, which has a planned opening early in 2001. Plans also include the upgrade all guest handsets at the Five-Star Caledonian Hilton in Edinburgh, acquired by Hilton earlier this year. Details of other installations were undisclosed at the time of this release.

"We worked very hard to win this deal and have positioned resources to provide the manufacturing and service levels an industry giant like Hilton International requires," said Jose Quiros, vice president of sales and business development for TeleMatrix. "This relationship is on track to prove extremely beneficial for both TeleMatrix and Hilton."

TeleMatrix is the only U.S. vendor that holds current European TBR and BABT approvals. While other manufacturers need to maintain different versions of their telephones for different countries around the world, TeleMatrix offers telephones that are compatible worldwide.

The Euro2 telephone, the first model in TeleMatrix's Euro Series line, boasts patent pending CPU-driven technology and brand new casing. Additionally, the Euro2 does not require batteries, so hotels can realize substantial savings by eliminating the parts and labor associated with battery replacement.
