Vordel's TalkXML adopted by Insurance giants AXA and 
Royal & SunAlliance

Dublin, Ireland - 18 October 2000 - Vordel, a global supplier of 
XML based cohesion technologies for eBusiness, today announced the 
implementation of its TalkXML product in an initiative involving 
both AXA and Royal & SunAlliance.  The Commercial Electronic 
Trading (CELT) initiative involving some of Europe's leading 
insurance companies facilitates the online processing of insurance 
quotations from independent Insurance Brokers throughout Ireland.

Commenting on the successful implementation of the project, David 
Ryan, CEO at Vordel, said: "This is another important example of 
how TalkXML can be used to migrate key business activities, 
traditionally dependent on the use of paper forms to an online 
environment, thereby introducing operational efficiencies, instant 
access to forms and an improved customer service. The TalkXML suite 
is quick and easy to install and operate, and the intuitive nature 
of the products means that the Insurance brokers can begin using 
the CELT service immediately."

Michael Comiskey, CELT Project Manager and eBusiness Manager at AXA 
Brokers, Ireland, commenting on the implementation of TalkXML said: 
"CELT needed a system 
that would enable insurance brokers to fill in forms both on and 
off-line and then submit them to all of the affiliated insurance 
companies. The forms needed to be versatile enough to communicate 
across different types of software, since all of the insurers had 
legacy systems in place. Vordel provided the ideal solution to bind 
diverse systems together in a single cohesive business network and 
allow the individual brokers submit their information in an 
easy-to-use format."

Gordon McDonogh, eBusiness Manager at Royal & SunAlliance, 
reinforced this statement: "Vordel's TalkXML product allowed us to 
upgrade the existing service and permit Insurance Brokers within 
CELT to submit quotations in a convenient method, on-line and 
monitor. This solution will also permit the Insurance companies to 
data-mine the information submitted."
