Sandi Jerome of CRS Consulting Services Inc. Opens
Oregon Market with First XSELLERATOR™ Software Sale

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 10, 2005) - Quorum Information
Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:QIS) (Quorum) announced today that CRS
Consulting Services Inc. (CRS) has completed its first XSELLERATOR sale
in Oregon State. Quorum recently signed a Vendor Agreement with CRS
which licenses their company to sell XSELLERATOR software in the U.S.
market. In order to meet demand in the U.S., Quorum's strategic plan is
to complete key partnering agreements with well established, U.S. based
companies to execute XSELLERATOR sales and implementation. The agreement
with CRS was the first of a number of planned new alliances which will
enable Quorum to penetrate the U.S. market quickly. CRS is owned by
Sandi Jerome, a highly respected Dealership Management System (DMS)
expert and Editor of Digital Dealer magazine, the leading IT resource
magazine for the U.S. automotive dealership market. XSELLERATOR is the
only completely integrated, Windows-based DMS software on the market. It
automates and streamlines dealerships' sales, service, parts and
accounting departments.

"I am thrilled to have Sandi join our team," said Maury Marks, President
and CEO of Quorum. "She is one of the most highly respected authorities
in DMS software in the U.S., and is the first of a group of companies we
have targeted to partner with in our U.S. market entry strategy. Having
Sandi work with us in this capacity is a strong endorsement of our
XSELLERATOR product, and gives the Company a high level of credibility
with dealerships in the U.S.- the proof of which is this sale being
completed so quickly."

Ms. Jerome has over 20 years experience in the automobile business. As a
CPA with a degree in accounting, Ms. Jerome consults and lectures on
automotive business management, internal controls, and computer
utilization for National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA)
Management Education, CPA firms, AICPA, automotive 20 groups and
manufacturers, and three of the major Dealer Service Provider computer
companies. Sandi has been a highly rated speaker at NADA in the past few
years.

"When I saw Quorum's technology in action, I knew I was looking at the
future of DMS software. XSELLERATOR is years ahead of any of the other
systems on the market today, and it will stay ahead because it's a
completely different approach - Quorum didn't copy the standard systems
that have been around forever, they have completely integrated
everything a dealer needs. I am looking forward to introducing
XSELLERATOR to dealerships. When they see what this software can do,
they will be as excited as I am about how it can help their dealerships
become more efficient and profitable."
