Florham Park, NJ - January 19, 2010

KSS Inc. today announced that for the seventh consecutive year it has retained its Gold Certified Partnership with Microsoft and continues its presence among an elite group of Microsoft partners.

Gold Certification acknowledges the highest level of competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies and represents the closest working relationship with Microsoft. Early access to the latest Microsoft technologies and participation in beta programs enables KSS to take advantage of appropriate developments for its fuel price management and optimization technology.

KSS, the first pricing technology and services company to attain this level of partnership six years ago, develops price management software that helps fuel retailers and wholesalers streamline their pricing processes and set optimal fuel prices that enhance volume and margin performance while maintaining compliance with government regulations.

“It’s an honor to be a member of this elite group of partner companies, and to have the opportunity to deliver sophisticated and high value business solutions to our customers through very familiar and widely used office tools”, stated Bob Stein, president and chief executive officer of KSS.

Attaining Gold Certification requires Microsoft Partners to prove their skills by acquiring specific competencies, training their staff to qualify as Microsoft Certified Professionals and demonstrating customer satisfaction.
