MONTREAL (Quebec), July 5 2007 – Alphinat Inc. (TSX-VN : NPA) is pleased to announce that the Quebec ministère des Services gouvernementaux recently acquired a government license to use the Alphinat SmartGuide suite of products. Through this acquisition, the SmartGuide suite will now be available for any Quebec government department or agency wishing to implement on-line solutions that will enable single-entry-point access to their various services.

« Electronic service delivery is the most economical, effective and flexible distribution channel available. The SmartGuide suite significantly minimizes the efforts needed to achieve concrete results, by offering businesspeople access to simple, high-performance tools that they can use to automate their processes, » said Philippe Lecoq, President of Alphinat.

Alphinat began developing its SmartGuide product suite in 2003, with this objective in mind. « We were looking to offer a product that organizations could use to fully and promptly meet their clients’ needs and requests – hence the concept of directed click-streams that guide users through information searches or the completion of formalities with complete accuracy, just as an employee would help them do in person, » continued Philippe Lecoq.

Alphinat software products were used to build the company start-up path available at the government’s business services portal.

Demonstrable results have been achieved since the service was launched. Prior to its implementation, a proponent wishing to open a business would spend two weeks, on average, identifying all of the required formalities. With the use of SmartGuide, this timeframe has been reduced to a few minutes and virtually all errors eliminated.

Alphinat also offers services that meet training, consultancy, support and maintenance needs.
