Toronto, ON � September 27, 2010 – Compu-Quote announced today the second release of iClarify validation services for Ontario Brokers. The new release contains a number of user interface developments including a significant enhancement in risk address selection and searching which in effect, has improved the service for rural brokers.

�During the past 90 days or so we have studied the Broker feedback from over 700 Brokers across Ontario processing over 120,000 iClarify transactions,� says James Nickelo, Senior Vice President of Compu-Quote Inc. �We were pleased to see that Brokers in urban areas were reporting over 90 percent accuracy in terms of correct images and dwelling details. Rural dwellings proved to be a greater challenge and this release focused on refining the address location and provides �progressive address building� just like the GPS in your car. That should significantly improve success rates.�

Greg McCutcheon, President of SCM Risk Management Services says, �We have worked together to deliver an even better solution with this release. In addition to improving rural addressing, it will deliver a more robust user interface to showcasing significantly more images and allow the Broker to view the risk and the surrounding neighbourhood through streetscape as if they were standing in front of the dwelling.�
