Orlando, FL–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–October 15, 2004–ACS Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:ACSJ) announced today that its Ultima Card(TM) reloadable debit cards can now be conveniently loaded via the EmpaSys(TM) internet platform.

“Neighborhood financial service centers are strategically well suited and conveniently located to sell our products and load cash value onto our Ultima Card(TM) products,” stated Walter H.

We anticipate that our program will receive strong and wide acceptance, because it gives neighborhood financial service centers a state-of-the art and lucrative profit center.

“The ability for cardholders to add cash value to their ACS Ultima Card(TM) cards and pay their recurring bills electronically at their neighborhood financial service center is a major step forward in empowering the unbanked consumer with quality financial services,” said Mr. Roder.
