    NEW TECHNOLOGY ENABLES PROTECTED STAFF TO GO WHERE GPS CAN'T

    QuikTrak Telecommunications plc, a wholly owned subsidiary of
    QuikTrak Networks Ltd (ASX: QTK) and specialist in the location and
    tracking of people, goods and assets, today announced that Blick
    Communications will be using QuikTrak technology to extend coverage
    of its Guardian, Bodyguard and Minder lone worker and staff
    protection systems.

    Blick Communications, a member of the Blick Group plc, is the UK
    market leader in wireless alarm and messaging systems for lone worker
    and staff protection within a work environment such as prisons,
    psychiatric units and high risk industrial sites. Blick has around
    60% of the rapidly growing UK market and has installed systems in
    over two hundred institutions. By incorporating QuikTrak's
    technology, Blick will be able to extend this protection to off-site
    activities, when workers are in transit or travelling to and from
    work.

    Chris Booker, managing director of Blick Communications said, "We
    have been looking for a high integrity solution for wide area staff
    protection to satisfy the growing demands of our customers.
    QuikTrak's impressive technology is consistent with our innovative
    approach to providing increased personal security for vulnerable
    workers".

    Chris Kyriakou, CEO of QuikTrak UK said, "This agreement will see
    QuikTrak technology embedded in thousands of portable devices in the
    next twelve months and is another significant step forward for the
    company. Being able to go where GPS can't is creating enormous
    interest in the UK security and mobility markets."

    OTHER RECENT AGREEMENTS

    The agreement with Blick follows the recent announcements of an
    original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Spinnaker
    International, to supply hi-tech tracking technology for securing
    cash boxes; a reseller agreement with ADT Fire and Security plc; and
    a confidential agreement with a leading European roadside service
    organisation to negotiate for QuikTrak product applications.
