Teletrol and Dollar Tree to Share Energy Management Secrets Promises to Help Make your CFO your BFF

Manchester, New Hampshire (June 11, 2009) – Teletrol Systems Inc., the leading provider of IT-friendly energy management systems, today announced that it will be hosting an educational and interactive Web seminar on Wednesday, June 17, 2009 titled, “Become Your CFO’s BFF … Overnight.” The 60-minute Web-based event will feature original content from Teletrol that helps explain how automated energy management systems can help improve profits for retailers by saving money on energy costs and improving operational efficiencies. The event will discuss how chief financial officers (CFOs) are playing an increasingly important role in identifying strategic cost savings for retailers. Aimed at retail facility executives, information technology (IT) leaders, and other retail executives, it will share five powerful concepts for building a stronger relationship with CFOs by helping them leverage the financial and operational benefits of an automated energy management system.

Presenting at the event will be:

• Greg Brewer, Vice President, Retail Business, Teletrol,

• Andy McMillan, President and CEO of Teletrol, and

• Ann Gurnee, Director of Property Management, Dollar Tree Stores

The event will also feature several interactive questions for attendees, and there will be an open question and answer session at the end.

“The retail sector, like the rest of the economy, is frantically working to identify areas of its business to optimize,” said Greg Brewer, Vice President of Retail Business for Teletrol Systems Inc. Mr. Brewer continued, “We want to help retail management executives see cost savings of up to 30% that an automated EMS will deliver through reduced energy consumption and store support costs. Further, when the economy is booming again, savvy retailers who keep costs down and embrace energy optimization strategies will be in a position to thrive instead of just surviving.”

Andy McMillan, CEO of Teletrol Systems Inc. commented on having Dollar Tree Stores participate in the Web seminar, “As a leader and innovator in multi-site retail efficiency, we are grateful to have Dollar Tree Stores share their experience and wisdom with us at this event.” He added, “A common theme for most retailers is to find products and processes that help reduce operating expenses and improve the bottom line, and Dollar Tree will present an extremely compelling case study for others to learn from.”

The “Is your CFO your BFF?” Web seminar will take place on June 17, 2009 at 2:00pm EST, and will be archived for future viewing. Immediately following the presentation will be a short Q&A session. To register for this Webcast, please visit:
