Visual One Enters Egyptian Market; Visual One
Systems Selected by Abercrombie and Kent
Nile Cruises
June 14, 2005 - Visual One Systems have made their first sale in Egypt with the signing of the Abercrombie and Kent Nile Cruises. The fleet of four cruise ships have ordered the Visual One PMS and Point of Sale systems.

A&K has a fleet of four boats on the Nile; each one is designed to be smaller than the average Nile cruiser to ensure a more personalized service.

An A&K cruise experience is unlike any other Ė with private docks, their own feluccas, and uniquely tailored sightseeing to avoid the crowds.

A&K believe that a Nile cruise is much more than just a room and sightseeing package; it is an entire experience where the quality of service, entertainment, on-board facilities, and food and beverage are equally vital ingredients.

Bassem El-Tohamy, Managing Director of Advanced Hospitality Solutions (AHS), commented: "We are proud to start the partnership with Visual One in Egypt with the implementation in the Nile Adventure, Sun Boat III, and Sun Boat IV, the most luxurious 5 star deluxe cruises on the Nile".

We have partnered with Visual One to deliver the latest generation of the totally integrated enterprise solution to the hospitality market in the Middle East, and we are confident that this start will form a solid foundation for the future development in the Middle East.

The Middle East and particularly Egypt, is widely recognized as one of the fastest growing regions in the hospitality market, and this partnership supports our mission to aggressively grow our business in this rapidly growing market.

Bassem added, "The selection of Visual Oneís totally integrated Front Office and Point Of Sale system will empower A&K Cruises to streamline their operations and be focused on delivering the right experience to their clients, which is critical for their future growth plans. This will increase their business agility and give them a long term competitive advantage".

Mike Gadbury, Managing Director of Visual One Systems (Europe) said, "We are delighted to be partnering Advanced Hospitality Solutions in this marketplace and this is further progress in developing a global infrastructure for Visual One".
