Friday, December 2nd, 2005 - MGM Wireless

ASX listed MGM Wireless is pleased to be the recipient of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Rising Star Award. The award recognises the Companys innovative application of technology to improve education outcomes and safety for young Australians.
Criteria for the award include the world leading innovation and significant Australian and international market potential of the Companys products and services.
By applying specialised, purpose built mobile phone messaging technology to the complex and highly sensitive area of school-parent communication, MGM Wireless has contributed to improving the educational outcomes and attendance of over 150,000 young Australians and increased the administrative efficiency in approximately 200 secondary schools in Australia and New Zealand.
The concept arose in 2002 in response to the South Australian and Federal Governments priority to address the new and growing social problems of truancy, unexplained student absences and declining retention rates.
MGM Wireless CEO Mark Fortunatow said, We are pleased that a prestigious third party organisation like Deloitte has recognised the benefits that our school customers enjoy. We are the leader in field. Our innovative application of communications technology is proven to increase the safety and welfare of students. We have reached this position by listening to Schools, working closely with Educators and continually investing heavily in R&D to deliver the solutions that schools need to achieve their educational and social goals.
The number of schools implementing the companies products has recently accelerated even further with the release of MGM Wirelesss new market leading communication solution - messageyou(TM)WatchLists. This solution allows schools to automate the entire process of school-parent communication, not only by SMS, but by landline voice mail, email and letter.
But much more significantly, messageyou(TM)Watchlists has patented intelligence and technology to automatically apply social criteria or rules to alert school leadership of emerging high-risk situations for students. This allows teaching staff to immediately intervene before a situation becomes critical.
By informing parents whenever a child is potentially at risk messageyouWatchLists also builds closer relations and assists towards closer engagement of the parent community to the school.
MGM Wireless is testament to the fact that an Australian company can be at the leading edge of innovation, technology and social responsibility. We are excited and honoured by a world-leading company such as Deloittes recognising our achievement. The growing levels of unacceptable levels of school attendance is emerging as a serious problem world-wide. It applies to all socio economic levels of Australian society. Its satisfying to think that a successful solution has been developed here in Australia.
The company has received praise and accolades from Parents because of the rapid and professional communication they receive from their childs school.
MGM Wireless is a listed company on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX Code: MWR) and is based in Adelaide, with sales and representative offices in New South Wales, Victoria, Brisbane and Western Australia.
