Kanetix in the news

Media coverage and press releases

CALGARY, March 15, 2000 - Kanetix®, an online provider of automobile insurance information and quotations, today released the first automobile insurance marketplace available to Albertans on the Web.

"We received a really positive response during our beta site test last week at the Calgary International Auto and Truck Show," said Gregory Ellis, Co-founder, Kanetix. "Our Alberta automobile quoting service is now up and running, making Kanetix the only Web site providing multiple automobile insurance quotes, with the option to purchase, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."

The new online, quote calculating service generates up to six insurance quotes from different providers, in the time it usually takes to receive only one by traditional means.

Kanetix's comparison service walks visitors through five easy steps, asking for only basic driver and vehicle information and then instantly provides insurance quotes in a time-saving, one-stop-shopping environment.

"You may find a rate that is lower than you've ever seen, or you may just be reassured that you are getting a great rate with your current provider," said Ellis. "Either way, Kanetix helps make your insurance decisions easier."
