 The UPS Store launches seven new services via web portal for small business
                   owners to provide help when they need it

In an effort to further support its growing small business audience, The UPS
Store ^® introduced today seven new business services available through the
Small Business Solutions portal. The portal, already serving nearly half a
million small business owners, provides access to exclusive content and offers
from a variety of service providers. The new additions include:

  *Web Conferencing Tool from AnyMeeting
  *Business Phone Services from eVoice^®
  *Newsletter Creator from Flashissue
  *Online Hiring Systems from Hyrell
  *Records Management Solutions from Iron Mountain®
  *Instant Chat Software from LiveChime™
  *Pre-Employment Background Screening from Risk Assessment Group

The results of a recent national online survey of small business owners
conducted by The UPS Store indicate more than 75 percent of small business
owners rely on outside partners to fill gaps in expertise and more than half
said they outsource to effectively manage time constraints.

The most commonly outsourced tasks are those that do not require intimate
knowledge of the business, such as website hosting, telecommunication
solutions and credit card processing.

“We know firsthand the kinds of challenges small business owners face, and we
offer solutions that work,” said Michelle Van Slyke, vice president of
marketing and small business solutions at The UPS Store. “Our goal is to make
it easier for small business owners to run their day-to-day operations by
working with trusted experts like The UPS Store and our vendor partners.”

Nancy Hart, for example, is a small business owner in Kingsport, Tenn., who
relies on the support of experts to help her operate and grow her business.
“My advice to other small business owners is: If you know how to do it, do it.
If you don’t, find someone who does.”

Nancy relies on her local UPS Store as an extension of her team for printing,
packing, shipping and faxing needs.

In determining the right service provider, The UPS Store found that small
business owners like to do their own homework as well as rely on
recommendations from professionals. Three-fourths of those surveyed claiming
to do their own online research, and 67 percent look for recommendations from
professionals.

More than 450,000 people have taken advantage of The UPS Store’s Small
Business Solutions portal, which also includes a small business-focused blog
and tips and resources from small business experts including SCORE.
