Exhibit 99.2  Management Remarks dated July 27, 2005.

                                Investor's Telcom

Good  morning.  Today I will be  presenting  the results for our second  quarter
ending June 30, 2005.

Second  quarter,  revenues  were $51.2  million,  a 19% increase from the $ 42.9
million  reported for the same period a year ago.  This  represents  the highest
second quarter revenue in our history.

Net Income for the  quarter was $2.4  million,  an increase of 79% over the $1.3
million reported last year.  Earnings per share for the period were 24 cents per
diluted share compared to 14 cents per diluted share reported last year.

For the six months  ended  June 30,  2005,  revenues  were $100  million,  a 24%
increase from the $80.8 million  reported one year ago  establishing a new first
half record.

Net income for the first six months of 2005 was $3.7  million an increase of 79%
over the $2  million  reported  for the first six months of 2004.  Earnings  per
share for the period  were 38 cents per diluted  share  compared to 22 cents per
diluted share reported last year.


Looking at the Quarterly revenue breakdown:


Product  Revenue  for the  quarter  was $22.9 M up 17.8%  compared to the second
quarter  of  2004.  This  increase  resulted  from  the  strong  demand  for our
hospitality products in the restaurant, hotel, resort and spa markets.


Service  revenue for the  quarter  was $14.4 M, up 36.4%  compared to Q2 of last
year.  This increase  resulted from a growing  installed  base in the restaurant
sector in addition to the hotel and spa service revenues.


Contract  revenue  was up 7.6%  to  $13.9 M for the  quarter.  This  growth  was
consistent with our internal plan yet lower than more  traditional  quarters due
to the timing of revenue  recognition  on certain  contracts.  Our first quarter
revenue was  exceptionally  high  resulting in a below  average  second  quarter

Now moving to margins.


Product  margins  for the  quarter  were 39.4% vs 32% last year.  This  increase
resulted from higher software content in our product mix.

We are particularly pleased with this margin increase since it demonstrates the
success of our strategic plan to improve margins through software sales.


Service margins were 24.2% vs 14.1% a year ago. This  significant  increase also
reflects the growth of the software content in our hospitality business.


Contract margins,  or in our case, pre-tax profits,  were 6.7 % compared to 6.3%
last year.  This is somewhat  higher than our traditional 5 to 6% pre-tax profit
range and resulted from favorable contract modifications.


Now turning to expenses.

SG&A  expenses  for the quarter were $7.3 M vs $5.2 M last year.  This  increase
primarily reflects the acquisition of Springer-Miller.

R&D expenses were $2.1 M vs. $1.3 M last year  reflecting  the  acquisition  of
Springer-Miller as well as increased investment in new product development.

Breaking out year to date performance:

In summary we are very pleased with our record second quarter performance.  Both
our government and our  hospitality  businesses  exceeded our internal plans and
made this achievement possible.

We are  especially  delighted  with margin  improvements  in both  products  and
services   reflecting  a  substantial   increase  of  software  content  in  our
hospitality  business.  While  much of this  derives  from  the  Springer-Miller
acquisition;  we are also  experiencing  an increase in our restaurant  software

With a 19% revenue growth and  substantial  gross margin  improvements,  we were
able to grow  earning  per share by 71% to 24 cents per share,  slightly  higher
than street forecasts of 21 cents.

The results for this quarter are a reflection of the following facts:

     1.   The  Hospitality  market is very  healthy  with both  restaurants  and
          resorts investing in expansion and up grades

     2.   We have created and sustained long term relations with our Hospitality
          customers which has allowed us to gain market share, not as the result
          of lower  pricing but rather,  delivering  value which has resulted in
          excellent  customer  relations.  This I consider to be a strategically
          important  accomplishment  as we  serve  some  of  the  largest,  most
          demanding companies in the Hospitality sector. Through these long term
          relationships,  our customers  have  benefited  from the value we have
          provided;  however, we have also benefited from these relationships by
          building a valuable  infrastructure  which credibly creates,  delivers
          and supports  complex IT solutions  for large global  accounts.  It is
          this  asset  which we are now  leveraging  to expand  our  hospitality

     3.   We are pleased  with the  accretive  results from our  acquisition  of
          Springer-Miller. This is the first example of our intended strategy of
          leveraging our considerable  infrastructure  to extend our Hospitality
          business  through  strategic   partnering  with  exemplarily  software

     4.   Our investments to increase  software content is beginning to pay off.
          This can be seen in this  quarter's  improvement  in both  margins and

     5.   We are pleased to report a 62% increase in  international  hospitality
          product  revenue this quarter as we have been striving to increase our
          international  sales.  Particularly  gratifying  is the fact that this
          growth  resulted from several new  customers  such as Loterria a large
          Korean corporate owner of many restaurant & cafeteria outlets, Herfy's
          a burger  chain in Saudi  Arabia,  Subway in Latin  America and Gloria
          Jeans an international coffee chain with operations widely distributed
          around the world.

     6.   Our  government  business  continues to perform quite well with a 7.6%
          revenue  growth  this  quarter.   This  marks  the  146th  consecutive
          profitable  quarter for our government  business and with a backlog of
          $110 M, we are assured of continuing a strong government business.

     7.   In  addition  to  the  government   revenue  growth  in  the  both  IT
          Outsourcing and applied technology,  we also benefited this quarter by
          the restoral of DOT funding to our Logistics Management program. While
          we expect continuation of government funding, we are also beginning to
          develop an embryonic  commercial  business.  To date we have installed
          over 1200 hundred  CargoMate  systems on chassis and Mobile  Generator
          Sets.  While  we  are  a  long  way  from  establishing  a  successful
          commercial  business,  we are  never-the-less  gratified by this small
          first  step.  Our  strategy  for this  area is to  continue  to pursue
          government sponsored container security programs as a means to our end
          goal of establishing an information based commercial business.

On another note, it was gratifying to have been listed in two national  business
magazine's noting our most recent financial performance.  We were listed # 34 on
the Fortune Small Business  Fastest  Growing  Companies and # 15 on Business 2.0
magazine's list of the fastest growing public technology companies.

We are off to a strong start to 2005 as represented by our YTD performance.  For
the  year we had  forecasted  revenue  growth  in the  range  of 15 to 20%  with
accelerated  earnings.  Based on results to date, we feel that revenue will grow
at the upper end of the range with corresponding acceleration in earnings.

I would now like to open the session to take your questions.
