NEW BERLIN, WI and NORCROSS, GA September 14, 2006 – Marshall and Swift / Boeckh (MSB), the leader in providing building cost data, estimating technology and consulting to the property insurance industry, and Custard Insurance Adjusters, one of the largest independent loss adjusting companies in the United States and Puerto Rico, announce they have entered into a contract for MSB’s IntegriClaim and IntegriClaim Administrator products for use in Custard’s catastrophe (CAT) and home office claims divisions, enabling claims to be sent from carrier to independent adjuster in a seamless manner.
IntegriClaim is a total component claims estimating tool for field estimating and first reports. It allows the user to import, export and e-mail claims, photos and reports. In addition, the IntegriClaim costs database is updated daily to allow the fairest market payout per claim. IntegriClaim Administrator is claims management tool that reshapes the way claims are managed by creating a paperless, Web-enabled work environment. Administrator is a real-time solution that distributes claims to remote sites, eliminates manual entry and greatly enhances the ability to reach an equitable claims settlement. “We believe that this level of electronic claims administration will soon be expected by many of our clients and will become the standard in the industry,” states Custard’s Executive Vice President, Robert Soby. “Our Catastrophe Division has been using this program exclusively for the past few months and our adjusters are reporting that it has significantly increased efficiency and productivity in their work product.”
“We are pleased that Custard has chosen IntegriClaim and Administrator as we believe it will be of great benefit to their adjusters and their bottom line,” says Jonathan Kost, Senior Vice President of Claims at MSB. “Because IntegriClaim and Administrator provides adjusters with easy-to-use, accurate, ‘total component’ estimating tools, they can ensure settlements are fair and customers are happy.”
