TMNG Global Unveils SmartXchangeSM

A Groundbreaking New Automated Mobile Device Recapture Service for Communications Companies

New Service Enables Mobile Operators to Proactively Incent Customers to Recycle Their Mobile Devices

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., May 19, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TMNG Global (Nasdaq:TMNG) a leading provider of management consulting and software solutions to the global communications, media and entertainment industries, is today unveiling its SmartXchange SM   solution, a groundbreaking new automated mobile device recapture service for the communications industry. SmartXchange SM helps wireless providers realize multiple economic and environmental business benefits from the collection and reuse of handsets and other electronic devices.

Over 100 million wireless devices are replaced in the U.S. each year; billions worldwide. The EPA estimates that there are close to one billion unused handsets that could eventually pollute landfills with over 500,000 tons of toxic waste.   "It is imperative that communications providers proactively drive and manage the collection and re-use of their handsets, " said Rich Nespola, Chairman and CEO of TMNG Global. "In addition to the serious environmental implications, there is also a pressing need for replacement parts to meet the growing demand for refurbished handsets, particularly in emerging markets."

TMNG has leveraged its proprietary software Ascertain ® to develop the ground-breaking patent-pending software solution, upon which the SmartXchange SM managed service offering is based. This innovative solution provides wireless operators with the tools they need to target desired handsets that are valuable to their business operations or simply incent their customers to return unwanted or used handsets, either to capitalize on resell opportunities or for environmental purposes. TMNG can provide a full portfolio of incentive offerings as part of the program or SmartXchange SM can also be integrated with any existing internal programs such as loyalty programs or company gift card programs. 

Mobile handsets are just the first step. SmartXchange SM can be configured to recapture any electronic device or corporate asset, including set top boxes, laptops, PDAs and more. "In the new world of environmental economics, SmartXchange SM is a win-win for everyone. It enables communications providers to make a significant contribution to the reduction of electronic devices in landfills; while generating new revenue streams not envisioned just five years ago," Mr. Nespola added.

TMNG Global is now deploying the SmartXchange SM solution for a major U.S. carrier and discussions are underway with a number of tier one operators worldwide.
