Time in Half



Apr 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from INSpire Insurance Solutions

    FORT WORTH, Texas, April 18 /PRNewswire/ --
 INSpire Insurance Solutions (Nasdaq: NSPR), a leading property and casualty
 insurance outsourcing services provider, announced that its TransFluent(TM)
 product suite has been upgraded to include enhanced XML capabilities.
     TransFluent, INSpire's proprietary universal data translation solution, is
 the only software application in the industry that serves as an enterprise-
 wide translator tool and works across multiple platforms including mainframes,
 AS400, Unix, Vax and PC servers.
     Through TransFluent's enhanced XML features, customers can automatically
 import their Document Type Definitions thereby eliminating the need to re-key
 or redefine data.  TransFluent's graphical interface allows easy viewing of
 the complete translation process eliminating the need to search through lines
 and lines of code.  These features can cut development and maintenance time by
 up to 50 percent resulting in decreased overall deployment costs.
     "Downloading data from company legacy systems is cumbersome," said John
 Pergande, chairman and CEO, INSpire.  "TransFluent has always been an
 enterprise-wide data sharing solution, and by incorporating XML capabilities,
 TransFluent now translates data from multiple formats on diverse platforms
 into XML for either real-time or batch mode."
     Additional enhancements to TransFluent include integrated Document Type
 Definitions (DTD), automated generation of XSLT style sheets and Schema, a
 more flexible way of defining documents needed to support DTD.
     "Converting TransFluent to XML is a natural progression for us," said
 Pergande.  "Our customers face increasing pressures of real-time demands on
 software applications.  Companies and entire industries are moving toward
 enterprise-wide data sharing, and we are ahead of the pack by enhancing
 TransFluent's XML capabilities now."
     INSpire representatives will be on hand at the ACORD Technology Conference
 2001, May 20-22, in Orlando, Fla., to give one-on-one demonstrations of
 TransFluent's suite of products.
