Bell selects award-winning Canadian ERMS to support their 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic broadcasting team!

Bell Canada has selected ERMS Corporation (www.ermscorp.com) to again support their
400+ team in Sochi, Russia during the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, as they did for the
2012 Summer Olympic Games.

“Providing a broad range of live and on-demand content to smartphones, tablets, TV and
computer screens for Canadian customers means the Bell team in Sochi will be very
mobile and highly active throughout the Olympic venue, “ says Sylvain Rollin, President
of ERMS Corporation. “With heightened security concerns, the ERMS Advantage
notification system will provide Bell, and its team, with the reassurance and reliability
they need to communicate anywhere, at any time, on any device,” he added.

EMRS Advantage will provide Bell with easy-to-use mission critical tools for real-time
team communication. Advantage allows the large Bell Olympic coverage team to report
their status on a regular basis which in turn enables Bell’s security team to quickly
determine who may need assistance and focus their attention on employees who have
not reported their status. In the event of an emergency, the emergency notification
system can be used to rapidly notify Bell’s team to help ensure their safety, to poll
recipients, or to automatically have recipients transferred to a conference call or
support personnel. All while helping to speed recovery with real-time reporting and
crisis management collaboration tools.

Bell used ERMS Advantage successfully during the 2012 Olympics for daily critical and
non-emergency communication.
