AXA Canada Selects DWL’s Broker Portal Solution

NEW YORK, – January 23, 2001 – DWL Incorporated, a
leading e-solutions provider, today announced it has been selected by AXA Canada, one of
Canada’s leading property and casualty insurers, to provide a real-time transactional
Web-enablement solution for AXA’s Personal Lines business. For this integral component of
its e-business rollout, AXA selected DWL Unifi Insurance?: Broker Portal, a fully
transactive and e-customer focused solution that will allow AXA to provide brokers with
real-time, transactional capabilities including comprehensive policy management for its
personal property and automobile insurance lines. The Broker Portal will be instrumental
in replacing AXA’s traditional paper-based business process administration and will
provide brokers with a standardized browser-based interface through which they can perform
business transactions with customers and AXA. “AXA is committed to deploying superior
technology that will help us achieve optimal productivity in our broker channel,”
said Bob Fitzgerald, President and Chief Operating Officer of AXA Canada.

“Many leading financial companies are optimizing their
distribution channels via the Web. With DWL the solution, AXA will be able to provide a
highly customized Web product that fully addresses our e-business needs. DWL’s Broker
Portal will enable us to leverage existing business processes, including automated
underwriting requirements, and achieve specific branding requirements central to our
project objectives.” “We are thrilled to be providing solutions that support
strategic e-business initiatives to AXA Canada,” said Justin LaFayette, President and
CEO, DWL Incorporated.

“AXA was one of the first insurers to recognize the major advantages associated with
doing business on the Web and was quick to incorporate it into a strong business
strategy.” Based on DWL’s core engine, Unifi, the solution will allow AXA to leverage
its existing systems by extracting and consolidating key business information, such as
policy and billing data, in real-time. The solution allows for a bi-directional flow of
information between back-end systems and the front-end, ensuring brokers have access to
the latest information and real-time updates to data.
