B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Ltd. Supplies Israel's Home Front Command With Multi-Function Rugged Handheld Computers For Gas Mask Distribution Effort

RISHON LETZION, Israel, May 3, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Ltd. ("BOS") (Nasdaq:BOSC), today announced the successful implementation and delivery of ruggedized Pocket PC/scanner/phone/GPS devices to Israel's Home Front Command, for use in the massive effort to distribute new gas masks to every household, which began last month.

BOS expects revenues from the transaction to exceed $150,000.

The Israel Postal Company is distributing the new gas mask kits on behalf of the Home Front Command, and is using the M-3 mobile Hebrew-enabled handheld terminals supplied by BOS to track the kits at distribution centers throughout the country, as well as through its home delivery service. Families have the option of either collecting their gas masks for free at a branch of the Postal Company, or paying 25 NIS per household for a representative to make a home visit and fit gas masks on each person who lives in the household.

In addition to supplying the M3 Mobile terminals and accessories, BOS advised the Home Front Command on mobile and cellular data collection applications for the distribution effort. BOS continues to provide technological support to the IDF unit responsible for the technological aspects of the project.

Each gas mask kit distributed or collected -- whether at the distribution centers or delivered to individual households -- has a bar code that will be read by the M3 Mobile handheld terminals. Data on individual gas masks is then sent to the central server, enabling the Home Front Command to have a complete picture of which kit has gone to which household.

"We are very pleased to be part of this important national security effort," said Yuval Viner, BOS CEO. "The data collected from our devices will provide the Home Front Command with necessary tools to manage and optimize the distribution of the gas masks."
