ACH Direct Relocates Corporate Office To Allen, Texas

ALLEN, TEXAS, Feb. 2, 2006 – ACH Direct, Inc., a leading technology provider of Automated Clearing House, credit card and debit card payments processing and risk management services, today announced completion of the relocation of its corporate offices from Cathedral City, Calif., to Allen, Texas. The new 20,000 square foot facility currently houses 40 employees and a state-of-the-art processing center.

“As a result of our record business growth and expansion, it became necessary to look for a new location,” explained Jeff Thorness, president and CEO of ACH Direct. “The benefits of relocating to Texas, for both the company and our customers, were readily apparent. Logistically, this location is ideal for delivering enhanced customer service. By moving into the Central time zone, we can easily offer expanded customer support to all of our clients nationwide. Our support representatives are available until 7 p.m., so our West Coast clients will continue to enjoy the superior service for which they have become accustomed,” Thorness said.

“The technology corridor in the north Dallas area gives us access to a large pool of qualified, highly skilled employees,” Thorness explained. “Our new location provides flexibility for future growth. 2005 was a record year, and by all current indications, we’re positioned for even stronger growth in 2006. Our Automated Clearing House transaction volume increased 82 percent in January.”
