Winter Olympics

FOUNDATION LogicSystems has installed their Linen & Uniform Management Software Systems
at the new Fairmont Pacific Rim Vancouver using the New Fujitsu UHF RFID Technology. The
Fairmont now has the technology in place to track over 35,000 linens, towels, tablecloths, bathrobes
and uniforms. They can now reduce their labor costs by eliminating time consuming manual tasks
and also reduce their investment in inventory because they will know where every item is at any
given point in time.

Woodland Hills, CA, February 11, 2010 --(PR.com)-- FOUNDATION Logic Systems announced that
the luxurious new Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada has installed their
Linen Manager and Uniform Manager Software Systems which employ the latest advancements in RFID
technologies on the market today. The advancement in UHF tag technologies by Fujitsu Frontech has
extended the tags read range from 12 inches to more than 6 feet with a substantially higher read rate and
with greater accuracy. As a result, it is now possible to read the contents of a large laundry hamper
without having to manually unload the hamper onto a tunnel reader only to reload the hamper on the other
side. Therefore, soiled items no longer need to be handled manually - resulting in a substantial reduction
in labor.

The Linen Manager Module is simple to implement, cost effective and an easy-to-use system for
inventory management and tracking of linen, terry and banquet linen within the enterprise. Historically
shrinkage, excess inventories, losses to vendors and untraceable damage has cost millions of dollars to
property operators. With the new module, FOUNDATION LogicSystems has given operators the tools to
track their linen and terry assets, instill accountability, track vendor performance, and optimize inventory
levels resulting in huge cost savings. Marvin Tulman, Founder & CEO stated “For the first time operators
will be able to track their linen and terry assets on a day-to-day basis without incurring any additional
man-power overhead resulting in a drastic reduction in direct costs and substantial savings in indirect
costs.”

Randy Zupanski, General Manager of the 377-room Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel said, “When dealing with
an external commercial laundry facility, previous experience in the hotel industry has taught us that
inevitably, items go missing. Often these items are never recovered, forcing the hotel to purchase
replacements. What's more, manual tracking processes is time-consuming, and inaccurate. One of our
hotel's points of difference is the leading-edge technology we offer and the FOUNDATION
LogicSystems' software together with the Fujitsu UHF RFID tags extend this to include housekeeping -
our largest department and one that is often overlooked. We anticipate that the RFID tags and software
will provide unmatched accuracy and efficiency, plus a significant return on investment by reducing
costs.”

The Uniform Manager Module tracks the garments from receiving, to assignment, and through cleaning
and repair in “Real Time” using RFID tags. Every garment is identified and its location is monitored 24

hours a day. Immediate data provides up-to-the-minute information for the Uniform Department. The
complete garment inventory is maintained instantly. Employees are accountable for what they have and
losses are controlled because manual record keeping errors and disputes are eliminated. The monitoring
of par levels eliminates over buying. Also, “The Uniform Manager” can interface with most Human
Resource, Accounting and/or Purchasing Systems. This instant information exchange provides precise,
accurate data at all times. “The Uniform Manager” includes an “Integrated Purchasing System,” which
allows managers to track budgets by expensing garment purchases to the proper department and it ensures
that the property is only billed for items received. With the extensive reports that are generated by “The
Uniform Manager,” management spends less time “putting out fires” and more time on the floor.

Marvin Tulman went on to say, “Not until recently with the introduction of UHF RFID technology, has
there been a real and practical solution to the linen and uniform management needs of the Hospitality
industry. Both systems provide an opportunity to save money with a ROI of less than a year - because
Inventories and Labor can now be reduced significantly.”
