Dominion of Canada General Insurance Implements Applied Systems WARP

Toronto, Ontario – October 17, 2006 – The Dominion of Canada General Insurance Company announced that brokers using The Agency Manager (TAM)® across Canada now have access to The Dominion�s Broker Portal Update and Broker Portal Inquiry websites through Applied Systems WARP technology.

With a single click, brokers can now log in to either policy website, thanks to implementation of a data bridge transaction from TAM to The Dominion�s sites using WARP, Applied Systems� real-time technology. This integration gives brokers quick access to current policy information for The Dominion policyholders, allowing brokers to respond faster to insureds� queries and requests.

�The Dominion�s focus is on making it easy for our brokers to do business with us,� said Steve Whitelaw, vice president of Product Development for The Dominion of Canada General Insurance Company. �Implementation of WARP technology will provide valuable time-saving for our brokers, and is an important step in our larger �Ease of Doing Business� initiative.�

�With this implementation, The Dominion and WARP are leveraging CSIO XML standards in bringing new efficiencies to the broker-carrier relationship,� said Doug Johnston, Applied Systems executive vice president of Interface Services.
