Letter from Jeff Lem President

Dear Valued Customer,

As you may have read in the adjoining press release, qdata is merging with Viascan to create the largest data collection company in Canada. When completed well offer services in both official languages with offices in Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, and Vancouver, and very soon Calgary.

As you know its not about being the biggest its about being the best. And I define that as being able to serve our customers like no other. Denis Kurdi, one of my new business partners, said it best, Its a merger of value, and together we will be able to deliver the widest array of services and data collection products at very competitive prices. In the process, well redefine the buying and servicing of data collection products and systems.

Our new company will operate under one name: Viascan and Ill become the CIO and VP of Systems & Solutions. Qdata will become a wholly owned division of Viascan and continue to develop and market our software properties like RF Plus where I will remain the President. To achieve greater economies of scale, qdatas service and hardware reseller teams will be rolled into Viascan.

Upon completion of the merger heres what youll see:

- Premier reseller of all major brands from: Motorola, Intermec, Psion, Zebra, Datalogic, and Honeywell.

- Software. A solid portfolio of software products with a proven track record in inventory control, RFID asset tracking, and proof of delivery.

- Labels and Ribbon. Two manufacturing facilities located in Ajax (just outside of Toronto) and Montreal, producing high quality and cost competitive label media and ribbons.

- Service Professionals with certifications and proven expertise in wireless networking, RFID, barcoding equipment, and print & apply.

- Managed Services. Well manage and monitor all your mobile assets including Blackberries, iPhones, Android devices, barcoding equipment, and media supplies. Well maintain, fix, and replace all these products at a monthly fixed rate.

In the meanwhile for at least the next six months, well continue to operate as separate companies and youll be given plenty of time to update your purchasing and accounting systems. In June, qdata will be moving from our Markham offices to the new state of the art facility in Ajax which will become a showcase for our technology. Also as we start bringing the companies together, we anticipate some account re-alignments to take advantage of local sales representation so well have a proper transition in those situations.

This is an exciting time for me and qdata - its not everyday you get a chance to change an industry. I want to thank you for all your business and support and I look forward to continuing our journey together for many more years. The best is yet to come.

Thank you and Scanners On!

Jeff
