Delivers Real-time Transactional Capability – Key CRM Component

NEW YORK, NY – March 26, 2001 – DWL
Incorporated, a leading transactional customer relationship management (CRM) company,
today launched DWL Unifi Insurance™ for Life Customer Service Representative Portal
(CSR) at LOMA Systems Forum. One of the only XML and Enterprise Java Bean™
(EJB)-based transactional CSR solutions for life insurance companies, the CSR Portal
allows carriers’ CSRs to conduct customer service transactions with multiple back-end
administrative claims and other legacy and CRM systems via a personalized intuitive
browser interface.

The CSR Portal serves as an integral point of contact for
servicing customers with real-time information including their existing policy, claims,
billing, new policy inquiry, and fund management. Surfaced in real-time from legacy
systems, the solution is designed to have a consistent, easy-to-use interface that
eliminates points-of-departure (PODs). The CSR Portal significantly reduces costs by
eliminating the administrative costs associated with paper-based transactions. It
significantly reduces training requirements and leverages customer interaction resulting
in increased revenue generation due to cross-selling and up-selling.

“The call center continues to be a focal point for
multi-channel interaction within a CRM framework and is a touchpoint that increasingly
results in up-sell and cross-sell opportunities for insurance companies,” said Justin
LaFayette, President and CEO, DWL. “The CSR Portal’s EJB and XML transactional
capability is a very powerful tool for getting a comprehensive CRM strategy implemented
very quickly with minimal risk.”

DWL Unifi Insurance for Life CSR Portal is built on DWL
Unifi™, an open, web-based framework for integrating back-office systems with front
office business operations. Unifi enables real-time business transactions through new and
existing communication channels including web and wireless devices.
