Stamford, CT and Valparaiso, IN (May 11, 2006) Cornerstone Appraisal Services (Cornerstone) , a provider of high-value inspections and inspection technology for insurance carriers, and e2Value®, Inc., a leading provider of Insurance-to-Value Internet applications, announced today the complete integration of e2Value’s Expert Valuation System (EVS™) into Cornerstone’s proprietary “STARS” (Survey Tracking and Report System) application.
“Automation allows us to enhance our service and quality,” said Janet Toma, president of Cornerstone. “STARS permits our clients instant access to reports and data. e2Value’s EVS™ is the only web-based property valuation tool. Since it is web-based, integration of that tool into our system was natural, and facilitates delivery of instant information for our customers. And it allows us to lessen the overall impact of workflows and concentrate on the service and technical knowledge for which we are known.”
“Our web-engineered tools allow customers greater flexibility and speed in programming their own systems,” said Todd Rissel, CEO of e2Value. “Cornerstone serves a broad range of customers, and needed a system that eases integration and allows their team flexibility to meet all of their clients’ needs. Our strategic focus is to be the valuation model of choice – especially for higher valued homes. Simplified integration is a major component of that.”
“The EVS™, web-engineered, integration options allow us to build the systems we need. Our design is not limited by the typical issues faced in a client-server environment. We need to deliver real-time results and e2Value helps us do that,” said Matt Lyon, vice president of technology at Cornerstone.
