MALIBU, Calif., July 6 /PR Newswire/ -- Kanakaris Communications, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: KANA - news) has issued a progress report and has named Ken Scruggs as an independent sales representative for the Desience OPCON Module System.

''Our concentration is on rapidly expanding the site, which enables 100% digital downloading of books, and expanding the sales and marketing for the proprietary Desience OPCON Module System which encloses high-end computer operations,'' he added.

The launch of the proprietary web site
The design of websites including
Kanakaris reported the following background on its and OPCON Module System products:

NetBooks (TM):

As the Internet evolved, Company CEO Alex Kanakaris and instructor Michael Horn asked themselves the following question: What if there was a bookstore in 80 million homes worldwide, open 24 hours a day, where people could see and hear authors talk about their books, read or hear free excerpts, and then have the entire book delivered, in either a text or audio format, within minutes?

Working with Kanakaris management team members, they devised the technical parameters for a revolutionary website which would provide 100% digital delivery of books in both a text and audio format. has launched with exclusive online titles by Cass Warner (history of the Warner Bros.) and Laurie Jacobson (lives and deaths of Hollywood stars). Authors receive instantaneous worldwide exposure, an additional means of sales revenue, and retain their traditional print and other ancillary rights.

Talking NetBooks (TM), a totally digital product which delivers the popularity and user friendliness of Audio Books over the World Wide Web, is the next addition to the product line. Kanakaris will incorporate Microsoft NetShow technology into this groundbreaking eCommerce product which was announced at the Company's booth at the 1998 BEA Book Expo America at McCormik Place Convention Center in Chicago.

The Kanakaris/Desience OPCON Module System:

Working with IBM, the Company developed the Desience OPCON Module System(TM) for enclosing and organizing the equipment and cabling associated with data and network control centers. The first, large, OPCON installation occurred in 1985 with an installation of over 75 modules at du pont de Nemours in Wilmington, Delaware.

The Company has supplied OPCON modular systems to data and network centers worldwide. Kanakaris' Desience division assists the client in the planning process by making site visits, taking lists of requirements and then providing customers with blueprint floor plans of OPCON layouts, elevated views of suggested equipment layouts and perspective presentation drawings. Additionally, the Company oversees manufacturing of product and oversees the installation processes.

A GSA contract allows the Company to sell to the federal government and its agencies at preferred pricing. Federal government contracts today account for about 30% of OPCON Module System business.

The Company offers integrated electronic hardware in conjunction with the system. Large screen monitors, rear screen projections systems, video switching systems, digital clocks and related cabling and interfaces are provided to interface with the proprietary OPCON system. Kanakaris/Desience consults with clients to suggest the equipment best suited to work in conjunction with the customers existing equipment.

Recently, a new, ''low-contour'' Desience module was developed in conjunction with the U.S. Navy. In a contract of over $200,000. the products were installed in April of 1997 at Dahlgren, Va. The Company plans to refine the Desience product to increase it's desirability in the commercial market.

Future intentions include the ''universal workstation'' a concept currently under development. The universal work station will incorporate both electronics and the latest ergonomically designed work desk area. This will allow the customer to purchase a completely furnished work area in one step. The Company will support the station with full service contracts and customer support.

operational in August - will provide complete brokerage
services. They will have a home page within a couple of
weeks. KANA has strategic alliance with on
building and maintaining their web presence.

Please be sure to keep us informed! I'm an eager shareholder & KANA doesn't look so hot in my portfolio. I'm long & look forward to the bright & prosperous future. The past month hasn't been so hot, but I'm looking forward to the upside potential of KANA. I'm holding tight and waiting until we fly!

Alex Kanakaris (CEO of KANA) called me back today. He assured
me that things are shaping up good and as planned. They are planning
to make a press release by the end of the week addressing some
questions concerning the 504 placement which partially contributed
to the price drop in recent weeks. I believe it will include details
as to how much capital was raised, how many shares were issued,
and how they are using the capital, and so on.

Another important thing - they expect to become blue-skied by
next Monday in about 40 states (that allows brokers to recommend
the stock, etc) - which I think is going to help the stock quite
a bit.

He also mentioned to me that there are some acquisitions under
works which might happen sometime soon. I think all the 504
placement capital is going to be used for these acquisitions.

After talking to Alex@KANA, Prima, and, I am
more assured now. I will hold onto KANA for a long time.
