 solutions, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Thrifty
 Rent-A-Car System, Inc., a subsidiary of the Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group,

     "This contract win is an important one for IMRglobal," said Satish K.
 Sanan, president and CEO of IMRglobal.  "It is indicative of our growing
 strength in the commercial services market.  As the entire automotive industry

 existing systems into this new environment is a perfect match for such
 technological endeavors."
