Installation of Aftermarket Car Kits Just Got Easier Parrot enters into agreement with InstallerNet to simplify consumer needs.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (April 4, 2006) - Parrot, known globally as an innovator in development of Bluetooth ® technology and car kits, has entered into an agreement with InstallerNet to provide an installation solution for purchasers of Parrot's hands-free car kits. The InstallerNet program is designed to help consumers quickly find and schedule convenient, professional installation service near their home or office and also provides a nationwide warranty on the work done.

Parrot products sold through non-installing channels will include InstallerNet's patent-pending InstallCard. The InstallCard puts an "Installer-in-every-box" for do-it-for-me customers assuring complete customer service while reducing product returns. The InstallCard process is a powerful merchandising tool, which informs customers at the point of purchase that a professional installation solution is available to them. Parrot customers will be able to conveniently identify local InstallerNet members and schedule their installations. The InstallCard is backed by InstallerNet's established nationwide network with more than 1,500 certified professional installers. In addition, the installation work itself comes with a lifetime warranty by InstallerNet, so that the consumer has access to professional assistance with his Parrot car kit anywhere in the United States.

"We are delighted to be part of a comprehensive customer-focused professional installation solution like InstallerNet," said Edward Valdez, president and chief operating officer of Parrot, Inc. "InstallerNet is an established leader in the installer space and has a successful track record with a growing roster of professional installers. We believe that this partnership will help Parrot to penetrate new distribution channels faster and provider the quality and convenience that consumers demand. From the consumer perspective, we like that fact that our customers have real human contact during the installation process to make sure everything is taken care of and that our customers are satisfied," Valdez added..

Consumers who purchase Parrot car kits will receive a coded card that serves as proof of purchase and enables them to initiate installation services by contacting InstallerNet either by phone or online. Either way, the make, model and year of their vehicle will be registered and InstallerNet personnel will arrange for installation with a participating installer conveniently located to the customer.

"Parrot is the clear leader in Bluetooth hands-free car kits and offers the most comprehensive line of innovation products in the market. We're very please to be associated with the Parrot team and are looking forward to being a partner in the company's continuing success," said Bill Erdman, InstallerNet's vice president of business development.
