UNIQUEST INCORPORATED COMPLETES CHECKROBOT ACQUISITION

 UNIQUEST INCORPORATED COMPLETES CHECKROBOT ACQUISITION
 JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Uniquest Incorporated


(NASDAQ: UQST) announced today the completion of its proposed merger with CheckRobot, Inc., of Deerfield Beach, Fla. CheckRobot develops and markets the ACM(R) Automated Checkout Machine primarily for the grocery industry.
 ACM is a rapidly emerging technology that uses enhanced laser bar code scanners and a proprietary merchandise security system to allow shoppers to quickly scan merchandise before paying at centrally located cashiers. It combines the speed of a convenience store with supermarket prices for quick, easy shopping. The ACM offers benefits such as increased accuracy over standard cashier stations and a faster shopping alternative, and has also proven to attract customers to supermarkets. ACMs work in conjunction with both IBM and NCR's point-of-sale systems.
 Pursuant to the merger agreement, Uniquest will exchange one share of its common stock for approximately every 2.88 shares of CheckRobot common stock outstanding or issuable on conversion of, or as stock dividends on, its convertible preferred stock. Holders of publicly traded and certain other warrants to purchase common stock of CheckRobot which expire in April 1993 and March 1994 will receive Uniquest warrants to purchase common stock of Uniquest on a similar exchange basis with all other terms and conditions of the CheckRobot warrants remaining unchanged. The merger was approved by a majority of the voting shares of CheckRobot common shareholders and preferred Series A shareholders (the classes eligible for vote on the merger transaction) in a special meeting of CheckRobot shareholders held July 30, 1992.
 According to August P. Klein, president and CEO of Uniquest Incorporated, "We are pleased to complete the addition of CheckRobot's automated checkout product to the growing family of Uniquest system solutions. We will immediately consolidate CheckRobot's operations into our Jacksonville headquarters to realize resulting economies and continue our focus on marketing self checkout to major supermarket retailers. Uniquest is well-positioned, through its merger with CheckRobot and its acquisition in June 1992 of the assets of Infotronx, Inc., which has its Labor Resource Manager software installed in over 500 supermarkets, to provide multiple integrated solutions to the grocery industry."
 Uniquest Incorporated is a leading provider of application software and systems used for service management, general accounting, point-of- sale, cashiering, time and attendance, security, access control, job costing, labor distribution, scheduling, and communications. The industries served are healthcare, hospitality, restaurant, mechanical contracting, supermarkets, utilities, government, retail and other consumer related markets.
