CALGARY, Oct. 10 /CNW/ - Zaio Corporation (TSX-V: ZAO) is pleased to
provide updates on its Zone Sales, Photography rates, Zone Appraiser work flow
and Zone Appraiser scoring.
Over the months of July, August and September the Company sold 204
software licenses to new Zone Appraisers throughout the United States bringing
its cumulative software zone sales to 1300. "Despite the summer holiday
schedules among appraisers, our software Zone sale plans continue to be
executed and performed consistent with expectations", commented John Ross, VP
of Zone Sales.
Zaio is very happy to announce that the Photographic data base recently
passed through the 10 million mark. We are now over 13% of the way to our
estimated total of photographing 75 million homes. The quarter ended with an
average rate of 77,000 photos per day, however, it is important to note that
we have experienced days on which the photo rate exceeded 100,000.
The third quarter was the first in which Zaio was able to deliver fully
integrated Zones back to Zone Appraisers allowing them to complete their
valuation work. This is the last step in the process of making Zones available
to customers for purchase of Zaio's valuation products in addition to the
traditional products already available. An important aspect of this event is
that the Company is now in a position to recognize revenue which had
previously been deferred.
Several Zone Appraisers are now receiving appraisal orders from our
Kirchmeyer and Realink divisions, thus providing them with a revenue stream
even before the Zaio product is on the market. This is like a windfall to them
as there was no quarantee of this type of revenue at the time they purchased
Thomas J. Inserra, Zaio Corporation CEO stated, "Overall, Zaio continues
to demonstrate success in implementing its aggressive growth plans, and is
delivering solid performance in our key metrics." Details on the above
successes will be shared with investors at the Q3 conference call to be held
during the third week of November. The date and time of this call will be
available in the coming weeks.
