RouteOne Integrates with Quorum Information Technologies' XSELLERATOR'TM' DMS Through Oxlo Systems

FARMINGTON HILLS, MICHIGAN AND CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - March 27, 2006) - RouteOne LLC today announced the integration of Quorum Information Technologies' (TSX VENTURE:QIS) XSELLERATOR™ Dealer Management System (DMS), with the RouteOne system for credit application management. The integration has been completed and is currently available for Quorum's Canadian and US dealers.

Integrating Quorum's DMS with RouteOne will speed up the credit application and decision process for dealers, as well as reduce data entry errors by eliminating duplicate data entry.

"We provide dealers with a single access point to our ever-increasing network of lending sources, simplifying the automotive finance process," said Mike Jurecki, RouteOne CEO. "Quorum's momentum makes this a three-way win for RouteOne, Quorum and our dealer partners."
