GuestLogix, Inc., the leading global provider of onboard retail and payment technology to the passenger travel industry, today announced the deployment of its onboard retail technology platform including its popular handheld POS devices with rail operator First TransPennine Express. This deployment represents a substantial expansion within the rail sector and adds 24 million annual passenger trips to the Company's market share. The multi-year agreement marks GuestLogix' first implementation with travel-industry caterer Skytrac Group, a key channel partner in Europe.

"Further penetration of the rail industry continues to be a logical extension for GuestLogix," said Tom Douramakos, President and CEO of GuestLogix. "With channel partners such as Skytrac, we are better positioned to more effectively target the market and provide our leading and comprehensive onboard retail technology to rail operators. This market represents a significant long-term opportunity for GuestLogix and as operators are more actively searching for enhanced onboard retail technology, this recent contract win confirms that the GuestLogix' solution meets the industry's unique onboard requirements."

First TransPennine Express is an inter-city rail operation based in the UK that serves Northern England and parts of Scotland. First TransPennine Express is a subsidiary of transportation giant FirstGroup (LSE: FGP) which owns rail and other transportation operations throughout the UK, Scandinavia, the US and Canada.

Catering and logistics company Skytrac was selected from six competing providers to supply full-service catering support to First TransPennine Express. Skytrac presented the GuestLogix' solution, and the XPDA-V handheld POS device, as part of its comprehensive best-of-breed onboard retail offering. Skytrac serves customers in both the rail and air industries within Europe.

"GuestLogix proved to be a key component to our win with First TransPennine Express," said Peter Whittaker, Chairman and Chief Executive of Skytrac Group. "Their technology certainly met the requirements of this new deployment and we look forward to additional agreements as our partnership continues its growth."

"Our commitment to Skytrac and First TransPennine Express goes hand-in-hand with our commitment to provide our partners with first-rate local customer delivery service and support," said Richard Cushing, SVP & General Manager of GuestLogix Europe. "Skytrac has an impressive track record and continues to show excellence in every component of their offering. We are thrilled with our joint solution and travel operators are responding positively."
