GiveMePower Corporation In Final Beta Testing For New PowerCAD� SiteMaster� 2 Mobile and Wireless Building Surveying Solution

Sep 15, 2005

CALGARY , Alberta (August 31, 2005). GiveMePower Corporation (OTCBB: �GMPW�), a provider of next-generation computer-aided design (CAD), digital-blueprint management and graphics-development software for "anytime and anywhere" use across all Microsoft Windows� desktop, laptop, tablet and handheld/wireless computing platforms, today announced that final beta testing of its new PowerCAD� SiteMaster� 2 laser-based mobile and wireless building-surveying solution is underway, with commercial launch scheduled for the end of September, 2005.

SiteMaster 2 was first unveiled with Leica Geosystems at the American Institute of Architects 2005 National Convention and Design Expo in May 2005. Profiled in a Microsoft Corporation white paper and acclaimed as �truly revolutionary� by industry trade publications, SiteMaster is the first system of its kind to fully automate the creation of wireless, laser-generated �as-built� floor plans, area estimates and inspection drawings for building information professionals.

Used in conjunction with a Leica DISTO� Plus handheld laser, SiteMaster� 2 facilitates instant "point-and-shoot" creation of detailed AutoCAD�-compatible drawings anytime and anywhere using a Bluetooth�-enabled wireless desktop, laptop or XP tablet PC, or a Windows� Mobile� pocket PC, handheld PC or pocket PC cell phone - which combines the power of a pocket PC with the convenience of a cell phone.

More than 100 companies, government enterprises and educational institutions representing over a hundred million square feet of commercial and residential building space, are contributing to the final production release of SiteMaster 2. Highlighted projects and success results using PowerCAD SiteMaster 2 to date include:

�Average 600% productivity improvement for on-site creation and instant email delivery of more than 300 as-built restaurant drawings for McDonald�s, helping the world�s leading foodservice provider meet strict new public safety and security laws in the UK.

�More than 500% productivity improvement in the creation and management of precise, as-built building information in support of event management for 56.5 million cubic feet of space at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada. Includes data for specific drawings for each event that are sent to structural engineers (load analysis), fire marshals (safety), ticket agencies (seating), and event production (sound, audio/visual, rigging, decor, etc).

�Under 2-week deployment for Vivento Technical Services in Germany, allowing 25 initial team members with no prior experience to successfully measure and draw 13,778 rooms representing over 1 million square meters of technical areas and facilities throughout Germany for Vivento�s parent company, German Telekom.

GiveMePower Corporation and Leica Geosystems will jointly market PowerCAD SiteMaster 2 and DISTO Plus solutions through a network of authorized DISTO distributors and dealers and authorized PowerCAD Premier Solution Providers.
