Celent Communications Illustration Vendor Study Points To Satisfied Novinsoft Clients

Port Perry, ON, Canada July 19, 2004

Novinsoft Inc., a leading developer of Illustration Systems, was one of the eight illustration system vendors whose functionality, technology, and services were profiled in detail in the recently released reports by Celent Communications � North American Illustration Vendors: 2004 and Insurance Illustrations: A Necessary Evil Becomes A Competitive Differentiator.

The overview report identifies five trends that will drive decision making around illustrations for the next two to three years, including: an emphasis on vendor-based components over totally-custom systems; continued slow migration to Web-based systems; growing interest in common calculation engines; slow consolidation on vendors that provide more robust capabilities, and; improved integration across all new business functions.

Craig Weber, author of the report, says, �Reference clients liked Novinsoft�s custom development approach and their relationship management skills. Celent expects Novinsoft to continue to take a leadership role in the Canadian illustrations market.�
