Apr 12, 2001, 01:00 ET from POS.Com Technologies

    GAITHERSBURG, Md., April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- POS.Com Technologies recently
 completed deployment of its unique web-based subscription restaurant
 management solution to all 23 locations of the Chicken Out Rotisserie chain in
 Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina and the District of Columbia.  After
 successfully testing the software service at five Chicken Out stores for
 eight months last year, POS.Com began deploying the solution to the remaining
 18 Chicken Out stores earlier this year.
     POS.Com also recently completed 13 months of delivering pure web-based
 point-of-sale enterprise application subscription services (ASP) to
 restaurants.  POS.Com is unique; it is the only firm to have operated a
 solution for so long a period.  It is the first provider of real-time, totally
 pure web-based point-of-sale and e-commerce enabling services, including total
 connectivity, to the restaurant and food retail service supply chain.
     "We are excited to have achieved such a milestone with our unique
 product," said John Rovani, President and Chief Operating Officer of POS.Com
 Technologies.  "Our system is the industry's first and only real-time
 connectivity and business application solution.  During the past 13 months of
 continuous operation in real restaurant environments, POS.Com has demonstrated
 that a restaurant can use real-time software as a service to manage and
 improve its operations."
     "POS.Com is transforming our company, giving us real-time connectivity to
 our people, suppliers and customers," said Randy Gillett, Chicken Out's Chief
 Financial Officer.  "Profit margins are up, operating costs are down, and we
 move much more quickly."
     Rovani said POS.Com is the first company to offer real-time, totally thin
 client and web-based restaurant and food retail management software
 subscription services.  Operators can view, analyze and manage their business
 from anywhere they have access to a browser, and closely manage sales,
 expenditures, inventory, employee schedules and training, and overall
 operational productivity.  POS.Com also provides retailers with the ability to
 sell their products to consumers over the Internet and, on the back-end,
 integrate with standard back-office and supply-chain solutions.  The company's
 innovative solution is fully secure, reliable, scalable and features fail-safe
 redundancy.
     The POS.Com solution enables restaurants and other retailers to more
 accurately forecast sales through better knowledge of their customers and
 offer specials and coupons to attract them during off-peak hours.  The system
 also is scalable so it is easily adapted to single-unit operators or large
 chains.
     POS.Com publicly demonstrated its restaurant management solution for the
 first time at the Multi-Unit Restaurant Technology Conference 2001 in New
 Orleans last month.  The firm will exhibit its solution at the National
 Restaurant Association Show in Chicago next month.
     Chicken Out Rotisserie is a privately-owned and -operated regional chain
 of 23 casual restaurants.  It operates restaurants in Washington D.C.,
 Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina, and is expanding to Atlanta, Ga.
 Chicken Out Rotisserie specializes in made-from-scratch meals, prepared in
 each restaurant's kitchen.
