Applied Systems Canada, Inc. and CPU Management Software Inc. Announce an Integration Partnership

Mississauga, Ontario Canada, August 14, 2003: Applied Systems Canada, Inc., a leading provider of insurance automation, announced today a partnership with CPU Management Software Inc. Through the new strategic relationship, Applied Systems Canada will enhance offerings to Users of The Agency Manager® (TAM).

CPU Tracker Software®, the leading life insurance client database management system, designed by CPU Management Software Inc. helps enhance life, health and financial policy management within TAM. The TAM integration module streamlines workflow between TAM and CPU Tracker by eliminating the double-entry of data such as: producers, commissions, products, clients and prospects, policies, insurance company information and more.

The integration allows TAM Users to work in the program best suited to specific tasks. Life, health and financial agents can issue a cover note in CPU Tracker and the information is automatically transferred into TAM for billing. The TAM Integration module assists in the synchronization of data between the two systems and streamlines the existing workflow to provide greater efficiency for your business.

“The ability of CPU Tracker to enable users to access data through a multi-company, multi-product solution, provides the most user-friendly operation of any program of its kind. Their vision is right in line with the goals of TAM software,” states Michelle Cole-Kennedy, Vice President, Client Services. According to Cole-Kennedy, “Our partnership allows for a combined effort in meeting and exceeding the insurance industry’s need for a more streamlined workflow and double-entry elimination system.”

“A proven track record and service excellence is and has always been the foundation of CPU Tracker. Ensuring that customer needs are met is paramount to our existence and consistently results in a winning outcome and customer satisfaction. Our success comes from careful attention to client needs, through interactive communication, which often is followed by implementation”, says Allan Blitzstein, President, CPU Management Software Inc.
