London, 4 November 2003 - Level Four Software, a provider of best-of-breed
ATM test and development software, today announced a partnership with
i-design, a specialist in ATM user-interface design and ATM advertising
infrastructure software. The partnership will enable i-design to utilise
Level Four's ATM Channel Development Suite to better illustrate to financial
institutions the ease with which new branded screens can be added to their
ATM network. Level Four will benefit from advanced content being made
available for product demonstrations as well as from joint sales and
marketing opportunities.

The ATM channel is an untapped resource for banks looking for creative
marketing opportunities and more effective customer contact. Time and
technology constraints are the main barriers to adding enhanced graphical
content to ATMs.

Level Four's products enables financial institutions to test and configure
ATM content directly from a desktop PC. The development process includes
referencing custom branded graphics such as those provided by i-design.
I-design's Interface design service allows banks to quickly and easily add
graphics to the ATM network, creating a customised experience and opening up
the opportunity for on-screen advertising through i-design's ATM:ad
solution. Together with Level Four's tools this will lead to a much faster
time to market for new ATM sequences and improved branding opportunities at
the ATM.

Richard Swinfen, Technical Director at i-design comments, "Many customers'
main contact with their bank is through the ATM, so a consistent, branded
on-screen presence is vitally important. i-design can help banks that are
looking to enhance the user experience at the ATM through the introduction
of graphical user interfaces and on-screen advertising. Utilising Level
Four's highly visual development and testing technology will allow us to
better illustrate to banks the potential of the ATM channel."

Martin Macmillan, CEO, Level Four Software adds "The self-service
user-interface services that i-design provide are complementary to Level
Four's ATM Channel Development Suite, in particular our ATM Developer
product. By incorporating visuals from i-design into our product
demonstrations, we are able to improve the visual representation of the
virtual ATM interface and enable our prospective customers to visualise more
easily how their ATM networks can incorporate a sophisticated branded ATM

Level Four's primary software technology is the ATM Channel Development
Suite - a comprehensive toolkit that allows financial institutions to
develop, test and rapidly deploy new content and applications within their
ATM delivery channels. It includes ATM Simulator, ATM Developer and the EMV
FastTrack and 3DES FastTrack plug-ins. 3DES FastTrack is designed to help
banks prepare their ATM networks for compliance with the Triple-DES security
standard, and supports remote key management functions and Encrypted PIN Pad
(EPP) devices.
