Epic Financial, Datalogic, and Paramco Financial Team to Develop VoIP Video Conferencing for Mortgage Industry

Newport Beach, California, UNITED STATES


NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Dec. 10, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- Epic Financial Corporation (OTCBB:EPFL) and Paramco Financial Group (OTCBB:PFDE) today announced that Epic Financial, Datalogic International (OTCBB:DLGI), and Paramco Financial have teamed to develop a proprietary VoIP Video Conferencing system for the mortgage industry.

Epic Financial's Technology Division led this initiative by bringing Paramco Financial and Datalogic into the teaming agreement. Datalogic has been retained for R&D and software development initiatives, using its Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) platform to deploy the video conferencing system.

Once development is complete, Paramco Financial and Epic Financial plan to deploy the system to their respective mortgage business subsidiaries, such as Epic's Key Mortgage Corp., and Paramco's Royal Federal, Inc. The proprietary system will allow mortgage customers, bankers, loan underwriters, and mortgage vendors to communicate "virtually" face-to-face through the video conferencing system.

William Parker, President of Epic Financial, commented, "Our Technology Division was developed to keep Epic and its key partner companies, such as Paramco, on the forefront of technology within the mortgage industry. VoIP Video Conferencing is something we have envisioned for a number of years, but now with advancements in technology and the help of Datalogic, we can bring this solution to fruition."

"We anticipate that deployment of this system will give both Paramco and Epic a strong competitive advantage, allowing us to increase lead generation, increase our loan closing rates, and boost revenues," added Douglas G. Gregg, Chairman and CEO of Paramco Financial Group.
