--APEX/IFSA EXPO 2013,eGate Solutions, a leading provider of passenger
service planning and fulfillment solutions for the airline and railway
industries, today announced plans to accelerate product innovation,
development and delivery, while continuing to drive high customer satisfaction
and loyalty. Under the leadership of recently appointed President and Managing
Director Simon de Montfort Walker, eGate Solutions is developing a fully
integrated solution with new and enhanced features and functionality that will
be delivered in scheduled releases during the next 18 months.

"We are focused on giving managers access to data and functionality in a way

generating opportunities. The next year and a half will be an exciting time
for eGate Solutions as we continue to deliver innovative technology that will
provide our customers with the ability to increase efficiencies, offer

eGate Solutions plans to fully integrate the suite of products to provide an
end-to-end solution that will give airlines and railways greater control over
their daily operations. Further, the company plans to rollout improved
reporting and business intelligence (BI) analytics. These sophisticated
reports and analytics will enable airlines and railways to use the rich level
of data available in their systems to improve financial reporting and audits,
demand management and resourcing. eGate Solutions also plans to explore new
platforms and devices as the company moves toward a vendor agnostic approach.

"Passenger service planning and fulfillment solutions are complex, and eGate
Solutions provides a powerful technology to simplify and ease the total
process for the travel industry," said Drew Niemeyer, Chief Commercial and
Corporate Development Officer, gategroup. "The enhanced eGate Solutions
product suite will provide benefits at an even higher level by making it a
fully integrated and dynamic solution for our customers."

To support the end-to-end offering, eGate Solutions has re-structured its
product teams to create a more integrated approach to research and
development. The results include a solution roadmap that advances the features
and capabilities of the full suite and furthers inter-operability between
services. In the last six months, eGate Solutions has released several major
upgrades along the roadmap, including the launch of virtual containers for
galley planning and onboard capabilities for smart devices.

Customer demand for the products continues to be strong, with more than eight
implementations in the past 18 months and more on order. To support the
growth, eGate Solutions has established a dedicated service team and
implemented a formal partner program focused on key strategic, technical and
reseller alliances.
