Global Capacity Launches 'GCPrice'

Innovative Network Pricing Tool Streamlines Global Telecommunications Access Quotations

LONDON and LISBON, Portugal, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global Capacity, Inc. (parent: Capital Growth Systems, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CGSY)), the world's leading telecommunications information and logistics company, today announced the launch of GCPrice, the global source for automated tariff pricing information.

GCPrice provides customers with automated access to Global Capacity's extensive database of global telecom location, supply and pricing data, delivering the capability to generate accurate and up-to-date prices based on telecommunications tariffs for Leased Line and Ethernet services. The database contains over 5,000 discrete tariffs from 75 carriers in 67 countries. The database also contains over 10 million points of geographic and telecommunications location data. Pricing information is obtained through an online environment, enabling users to quickly and consistently develop quotations, store results and create reports from a single, centralized source.

One of the many new subscribers to GCPrice is Qatar Telecom Q.S.C. ("Qtel" or "The Qtel Group"), the Doha, Qatar based and globally focused telecommunications company. Henok Kidane, Global Capacity's Information Officer for Middle East & Africa, noted "Qtel is growing towards a position as one of the top twenty telecommunications companies in the world. We are very pleased to be expanding our long-term relationship." Saira Altaf, Qtel's Senior Commercial Coordinator - Data & Interconnect, commented "Considering the phenomenal growth in data movement capacity requirements in the Persian Gulf and this part of the world, pricing-based resources have not kept pace and this is a much applauded step towards bridging that gap."

Through the application of GCPrice, telecommunications and integrator customers reduce the CPQ (Cost per Quotation) of new or replacement circuits. The resulting labor savings improve quotation response time and profitability. GCPrice is the newest product in Global Capacity's portfolio of out-of-the-box and customized SAAS (software as a service) applications.

"Having an accurate understanding of tariff rates is the foundation of access pricing in the global market," said Nigel Meacham, Managing Director of Information Systems for Global Capacity and co-founder of Magenta netLogic, the UK-based software services group acquired in 2003 that is a key component of the intellectual property global knowledge engine within Global Capacity today. "GCPrice provides customers with a one-stop shop for accurate tariff pricing in 67 countries, eliminating the need for multiple systems and manual processes. We enhance the productivity of our clients' pricing teams and help them win more business while automating and improving the accuracy and efficiency of the quoting process."
