AXCESS Inc. Announces Partnership Agreement with
Emergent Technology for Supply Chain Solutions

“Hands-free” Tracking Increases Return on Investment
and Safety at Quarry Yard

Dallas, TX. February 19, 2004 – AXCESS International Inc. (AXCESS - OTCBB:AXSI), an RFID and digital video solutions provider of physical security and asset management today announced that Emergent Technology will integrate AXCESS’ ActiveTag? RFID technology in its YardTrack™ Software as a custom application for monitoring truck movement and record transactions within a quarry yard.

The ActiveTag RFID solution provides a battery-powered (or “active”) wireless tag affixed to each truck, enabling the vehicle to be identified and tracked throughout the quarry as part of Emergent Technology’s supply chain management system. Each ActiveTag? transmits a signal to palm-sized receivers located at “control points” at the entrance and exit of the yard and at the inbound and outbound weight scales, at each point relaying work order information electronically to the driver and the quarry. The system records load time and weight, and then uploads the transaction information into Emergent Technology’s YardTrack™ Software.

“The ActiveTag? technology significantly increases the amount of return for each vehicle,” stated Jim Mohan, CEO of Emergent Technology.

“Using an automated approach to identify the truck and relay pertinent information to the driver and the quarry saves valuable time. Moreover, productivity is increased with more frequent loads, while driver safety is improved.”

“We designed our products to make it easy for the customer to reap the benefits of RFID technology without the long and costly integration process.” commented Ben Donohue, Vice President of Business Development for AXCESS Inc.

“The open interface and TCP/IP Network capabilities of our ActiveTag? product line are ideal features that made for an easy RFID integration into Emergent Technology’s YardTrack™ System. Hands-free RFID automation provides the quarry operator with a real-time view of performance and productivity.”
