Riskebiz Internet Services Inc. Develops Insurance e-Marketplace using new Internet Technology UDDI

Vancouver, BC – July 24, 2001 – Riskebiz Internet Services Inc. announced today
that it has established an e-marketplace utilizing UDDI for the insurance industry. UDDI is a set of
XML protocols and an infrastructure for the description and discovery of business
processes. As a registrar, Riskebiz will provide a target-rich environment for finding
insurance related Web Services. The Riskebiz e-marketplace will be the logical place for
insurers, brokers, adjusters and all other companies in the insurance industry to find
services relevant to their particular line of business, licensing or geographical location.

Insurance e-commerce across the Internet has been hindered by the inability of insurers
and agents/brokers to (cost) effectively make their computers and software talk to one
another. Riskebiz’s UDDI initiative will improve the ability of web based insurance
software to connect to other software thus profoundly increasing the efficiency of
integrating web based applications and business processes. As insurance e-commerce
evolves, it is essential that businesses are able to quickly, easily and dynamically find and transact
with one another using any type of application. For more information on Riskebiz’s UDDI initiative,
