September 8, 2005 – PORT PERRY, ONTARIO – Novinsoft Inc – a leading developer of software for insurance and financial services firms — announced that Transamerica Life Canada has selected Novinsoft�s Illustration System Framework to provide Inforce Illustrations for their complete range of current and legacy Universal Life (UL) products.

With the merger of NN Financial and Transamerica a few years ago there is now an increased need to consolidate all UL products under one illustration platform as well as adding the increased illustration capabilities demanded by distributors and clients. Novinsoft will be providing both a desktop and web-based solution.

Ethne Freedman, Vice-President, Client Services, said, �We chose the Novinsoft solution because of Novinsoft�s knowledge of life insurance products and illustration systems, their previous experience with some of our most complex product families and their good reputation within the life insurance industry.�

Neil Menear, President, Novinsoft Inc. said, �This is a great opportunity for us. We can leverage the tools and expertise we�ve gained over the last few years building Inforce Illustration Systems for our other client companies to provide Transamerica with a state-of-the-art system. Our architecture is also designed to offer our clients a combined Inforce/New Business Illustration System in one module. This means decreased maintenance and testing time and costs later down the road.�
