Press Release Body: Kelowna, B.C., Canada - October 30, 2007

Sharon Barnes, CEO, RFind Systems Inc., a manufacturer of Real Time Location Systems
(RTLS) announced today that AppLocation Systems Inc., a location based services
(LBS) company that specializes in mobile supply chain solutions using a variety of
technologies, has joined their partner network.

Barnes states, "RFind's RTLS system will be used in conjunction with AppLocation's
MOBILEFusionT Asset Tracking Logistics Platform. This partnership will enable
companies, using wireless handheld devices, to locate their assets in specific
bounded areas indoors and outdoors with the RFind RTLS solution and merge with
larger scale Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Assisted-GPS devices on handheld
devices. The complementary technologies will allow real time location data to be
collected and processed directly into clients' Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

She continued, "By using our Tag-to-Tag technology, system integrators such as
AppLocation, now have the opportunity to integrate affordable RTLS with their GPS
and LBS products, providing clients with seamless visibility into their logistics
and supply chain management operations."

AppLocation President Gary Hartwig says, "Adding affordable RTLS to our product
offering is a benefit for our clients and makes sense from an integration
perspective. The convergence of RFID, GPS, and LBS requires our next generation
platform to integrate wireless location-sensitive applications across business units
to enable cradle to grave supply chain visibility. We provide the plug and play
interface with telco systems so clients can focus on running their business."

Hartwig continued, "The partnership with RFind gives us the added ability to extend
locating coverage to indoor areas. Operations and logistics managers tell us they
need to use every tool available to remain competitive due to increasing customer
expectations. We are optimistic that the dramatic cost differentiator of the RFind
Tag-to-Tag RTLS solution, combined with its accuracy and flexibility, will fuel its
adoption in more yard and locating applications."

Barnes concluded, "This partnership strengthens our position in the marketplace and
reinforces why Managing Automation magazine named us one of the 2008 Top 10
Companies to Watch."
