Quorum is Delivering First US Integration Point Under GM Integrated Dealership Management (IDMS) Contract

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2008) - Quorum Information Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:QIS) (Quorum) announced today that it has completed the pilot on the Parts Order Integration between GM's Parts Workbench and XSELLERATOR™, Quorum's state-of-the-art dealership management system (DMS). This is the first integration point completed between Quorum and GM U.S. under the GM IDMS contract, with many more currently in development. Each one of these integration points saves dealerships time and improves their ability to service their customers, further adding to the Quorum DMS value equation. In prior years, Quorum has developed multiple "advanced" integration points for GM Canadian dealerships, which has helped the Company grow its GM market share in Canada.

This summer, Quorum's U.S. customers will receive the Parts Order Integration under general release of XSELLERATOR V4.6.2. The integration allows XSELLERATOR dealer customers to easily place, access, track, and modify GM parts orders and view parts invoices via the Internet through the XSELLERATOR DMS.

"We were fortunate to pilot this new Parts Order Integration which allows us to always know where a customer's part is. We can provide real-time answers to look after customers better," stated Karl Arguello, Parts Manager for Greiner Pontiac in California. "This integration is also a time saver for the parts department because we can now seamlessly access so much more information now than in the past, when we had to gather the information from multiple places."

"This is one of many GM integration points that Quorum is planning to roll out to dealerships under our GM IDMS partnership in 2008." said Dan Ichelson, Quorum's VP Operations and Development. "For the Parts Department alone, we have completed the five Parts Order interfaces that integrate to GM's Parts Workbench. We also plan to roll out Parts Information and Parts Availability web services to all U.S. XSELLERATOR V4.6.2 customers in 2008. These services will provide real-time access to critical parts data to improve the customer service that GM dealerships provide."

GM's Parts Workbench is replacing the GM RAPID system for parts ordering. It takes advantage of modern technology to streamline the parts ordering, shipping, and invoicing process, making it easier for the Parts Department to do business with GM.

Interfaces to Quorum's DMS include:

- Parts Invoice - allows real-time retrieval of Parts Invoices that have been issued by GM.

- Parts Order Input - allows real-time processing of part orders.

- Parts Order Inquiry - provides on-demand retrieval of parts order status giving dealers the ability to immediately see the status of their orders.

- Parts Order Maintenance - provides real-time Order Maintenance including upgrading or canceling backorders.

- Parts Shipment - provides on-demand parts shipment information direct from GM through the Quorum DMS.

Projects in Development

- Parts Information - allows the real-time on-demand retrieval of the most accurate source of GM parts information such as pricing and supersession detail.

- Parts Availability - provides real-time on-demand retrieval of up-to-date GM Part Location and Availability information within GM distribution facilities.
