AUSTIN, Texas -- January 8, 2013

Starmount today announced that Perry Ellis International, Inc. (NASDAQ:PERY)
successfully piloted Starmount's mobile POS solution at 17 Perry Ellis stores
in time for the holiday shopping season. Most of the 17 pilot stores went live
before Black Friday, enabling Perry Ellis sales associates to provide a higher
level of customer service during the busiest shopping days of the year.

This initial deployment is part of a chainwide rollout of Starmount Connect
and Engage that will be completed in the first quarter of 2013. When fully
deployed, the Starmount mobile POS and mobile selling solutions will help
Perry Ellis increase the level of customer engagement throughout the store,
enabling associates to use mobile devices for product and price lookup,
product recommendations, clienteling, and to provide access to customer
loyalty information. One key capability, for example, is if an item is out of
stock in the store, sales associates can check inventory and fulfill the order
from other channels or store locations, without leaving the customer's side.

"Starmount's solutions will help Perry Ellis' sales associates sharpen their
focus on our customers, by engaging with shoppers on the sales floor," said
Luis Paez, CIO, Perry Ellis International. "By making our sales associates
more accessible throughout the store, we can consistently provide the kind of
innovative, customer-centered brand experience that Perry Ellis is known for."

"Our success with Perry Ellis caps off a remarkable year for Starmount," said
Joe Pisano, president and COO, Starmount. "We gained tremendous market
momentum, with a greater number of top-tier retailers adopting Starmount
mobile selling solutions. In addition, Starmount was honored to be the highest
rated provider of mobile POS solutions in the 2012 RIS News Software
LeaderBoard, with #1 rankings from Tier One retailers for technology
innovation, return on investment and quality of service. We're looking forward
to an even more successful year in 2013."

Starmount will demonstrate the latest versions of Starmount Engage and
Starmount Connect at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Show, booth #2073,
Jan. 14 and 15, 2013. To see Starmount solutions in action at NRF, please
