LAS VEGAS, NV (MAY 2006) — Smarte Carte, the leading provider of strollers and shopping carts at North American shopping centers announces the addition of two exciting new guest services at the 2006 ICSC Spring Convention and Trade Exposition.

New to Smarte Carte’s Smarte Wheels® line of vehicle themed strollers is the Mall Responder™ which has a fun fire truck theme and two seats to accommodate two children. Like Smarte Wheels single strollers, the double stroller features Mold In Graphics® that are embedded into the plastic body of the stroller to keep them looking great for the life of the product. Smarte Wheels single and double strollers are the ONLY themed commercial strollers on the market that nest tightly – requiring less floor space and generating more revenue per square foot.

Smarte Wheels single strollers are already a big hit with shopping centers and shoppers alike, and the added value the double stroller brings makes it a perfect addition to any guest services program.

The Charge Carte™ by Smarte Carte is a self-serve cell phone charging kiosk with multiple connections for today’s most popular phone models. The Charge Carte utilizes rapid charge technology that will safely charge a cell phone up to twice as fast as a standard outlet charger. The Charge Carte provides a convenient way to recharge dead cell phone batteries allowing friends and families to stay connected while at the mall.

Like all Smarte Carte guest services, the Mall Responder and Charge Carte services are available through Smarte Carte’s popular Revenue Share Concession Option, where the shopping center receives a state-of-the-art, self-serve solution without any out-of-pocket investment in equipment. Smarte Carte absorbs the ongoing costs of the operation and shares the revenue with the shopping center.

At Smarte Carte, our job is to never stop looking ahead. As a business that began more than 35 years ago with a simple solution to help people move luggage through airports, Smarte Carte is now helping people with a growing list of services in a growing number of places – from transportation terminals to shopping centers and entertainment venues – around the globe. Today, Smarte Carte has more than 1,200 employees managing its services at more than 1,000 locations on five continents.
