WATERLOO, ONTARIO–(June 6, 2007) – Symbility Solutions Inc. (www.symbilitysolutions.com), a wholly owned subsidiary of Automated Benefits Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AUT), is pleased to announce that it has entered into a business relationship with Lenovo, a global PC manufacturer.
“This symbiotic business relationship helps Symbility to further differentiate itself within the insurance marketplace. By developing common strategies and focusing on field executables with the Lenovo team, we rapidly accelerate the expansion of our industry footprint,” notes David Chalmers, Vice President of Corporate Marketing and Business Development at Symbility. “The combination of Symbility’s pen-based mobile claims application and Lenovo’s Tablet PCs provides a solution that effectively addresses the needs of clients in the insurance industry. The principal benefit to clients is an increased return on investment (ROI) which provides immediacy and value to the total cost of hardware ownership (TCO).”
Many adjusters and contractors traditionally use a tape measure to create the floor plan, exteriors and roofing details, and record the information with a pen and paper at the loss site. Upon returning to the office, they must take extra time to key the information into a PC. Combining a Lenovo Tablet PC’s extreme durability, multiple connectivity options, ultra long battery life and top performance with a software platform designed specifically for the pen-based environment streamlines data collection, provides users with more information available at their fingertips and eliminates the need to locate a flat surface to work on – which, can be difficult to find at a loss site. A laser measuring device that is integrated with Symbility’s leading-edge mobile claims application and Lenovo’s Tablet PCs provides clients an end-to-end solution for productive and secure activities in the field. Elimination of unnecessary travel to the office, reduction of time spent on re-keying information, reduction of scope creep, increased customer satisfaction and reduction of indemnity can drive a quick ROI for the client’s investment.
Combining Lenovo’s Tablet PCs with Symbility’s pen-based mobile claims application, which has been specifically designed to take full advantage of the tablet operating system, creates an ultra-efficient ecosystem for carriers, adjusters and contractors to handle all claim activity right at the loss site.
