ACI Offers New ChoiceCreditsTM Program to Help Appraisers Control Costs

ACI ChoiceCreditsTM program offers increased opportunity for appraisers to save while trying new products

March 17, 2010, Palm Coast, FL — ACI announced today the release of its new ChoiceCreditsTM program. ChoiceCredits is designed to help appraisers try new products without the need to purchase a new license for each individual product.

ChoiceCredits is a flexible, pay-per-use service that provides access to Microsoft BingTM Location Maps, FloodInsights Floodmaps, Pictometry® Aerial Imaging, ACI’s PDF Import Service, and Bluebook AppraiserBASETM. Each of the services has an associated cost per click that ranges from one to ten credits, depending on the product or service.

ACI clients are able to purchase ChoiceCredits in lots ranging from 500 to 5000, with attractive price breaks as volume increases. Clients can use ChoiceCredits for any of the services within the price model and can mix-and-match services as they see fit.

“We designed ChoiceCredits in keeping with our Appraiser’s Choice theme,” said Dave Roberts, president, ACI. “Appraisers often would like to explore new services but are hesitant to take on the expense of another annual license fee. ChoiceCredits removes the need for individual licensing of consumable products, like mapping and imaging services, and allows the freedom of exploring new products that can be shared across an entire office.”

Additionally, ACI ChoiceCredits works with ACI365’s new long-term storage feature that allows an appraiser to save work files on ACI365’s servers. And, ChoiceCredits never expire, so clients can buy in large volume and keep credits in an ACI account for use when they are needed.

ACI is offering introductory savings on ChoiceCredits. Interested parties can contact ACI Sales at 1-800-234-8727 or visit for more information.
