AMS Services Launches Latest Version of AMS SETWrite

Real-Time, Comprehensive Driver Information Now Available Through Exclusive Partnership With ChoicePoint

BOTHELL, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 14, 2007 -- AMS Services, the leader in insurance agency automation, today announced the release of the latest version of its real-time, multiple-carrier rating solution, AMS SETWrite™. This new version of AMS SETWrite includes the integration of Solutions at Quote(SM), powered by ChoicePoint®. AMS Services signed a strategic alliance agreement with ChoicePoint to be the exclusive provider of Solutions at Quote in the comparative rating industry through 2007. This is the first in a series of ChoicePoint and AMS Services product integrations and represents significant progress for the industry's efforts to provide customers with more efficient workflows and accurate information for new business rating and submission.

Solutions at Quote provides the user with real-time, comprehensive driver and vehicle information. Integrated into AMS SETWrite, Solutions at Quote further reduces data entry by eliminating the need to enter driver and vehicle information including Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) and drivers' license information during the quoting process. The driver and vehicle information is pulled directly into AMS SETWrite from ChoicePoint and is used in creating accurate, real-time insurance quotes. Because agents can quickly verify and confirm information with clients on new business quotes, agencies will experience more cost-effective operations and easier new business generation.

"AMS SETWrite with Solutions at Quote is great," said Denise Douglass, personal insurance agent at Clark Associates Insurance. "When my client called for a quote, she didn't have her VIN number handy, but I did thanks to the integrated Solutions at Quote data."

"Solutions at Quote allows us to shave off a couple of minutes from each quote we do," said Danielle Brown, personal risk manager at Rogge Insurance. "With driver and vehicle information automatically pulled in, we have the data for an accurate quote."

"We have seen a tremendous response from customers on the improvements made in AMS SETWrite," said Dave Acker, vice president at AMS Services. "Transaction rates have increased exponentially over the past several months. The latest version of AMS SETWrite with the integration of Solutions at Quote will provide our customers with the best workflow on the market today."
