Automated Benefits Corp.: Symbility Announces Mobile Claims v2.9

WATERLOO, ONTARIO–(CCNMatthews – Aug. 9, 2007) – Symbility Solutions Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Automated Benefits Corp., is pleased to announce a major milestone with the release of Mobile Claims v2.9.

One of the most significant software releases in the history of the company, the Symbility v.2.9 release offers significant enhancements and new features for both the Symbility.NET web-based data warehouse application and the mobile claims wireless, pen-based claim processing software.

“Staying the course with previous releases and market guidance, we once again utilized direction and feedback from our clients with the creation and delivery of this version of Mobile Claims” comments Eric Embacher, Chief Software Architect at Symbility Solutions. “Our goal was to grow our core business deliverables and value proposition in line with industry and client expectations. We have achieved this and so much more”.

Mobile Claims v2.9 features and enhancements include:

– Roof plan scoping module

This major highlight of the release will introduce next-generation innovations unlike anything ever seen in property loss estimating software. For the first time, field estimators can now fully scope and estimate damage to virtually any roof, no matter how complex, with unparalleled accuracy and efficiency at the loss site. We’ve accomplished this feat by completely redesigning the roof plan interface using a unique 3-dimensional drawing interface that is fully interactive. Users can build complex roofs by joining 3-dimensional shapes which can be moved, resized and rotated in 360 degree 3-D space, and using only a pen. Quantities for any roofing items applied to any portion of the roof are automatically generated, and, it can all be done from the ground–capturing measurements quickly and accurately with a Disto laser rangefinder–without the need to climb up on the roof. There’s no faster way to handle exterior damage claims.

– Additional features at a glance

— Create new claim files directly from mobile claims.

Field users can now create full claim files directly from mobile claims without needing to create the claim file on Symbility.NET and work with temporary claims in mobile claims.

— Combine all items for related sub-rooms and roofs into one grouping.

No need to list the line items for all sub-rooms under separate room headings on the estimate, all line items attached to all related sub-rooms can be listed under a single heading.

— Grouping items

Instead of only showing items grouped by the room in which they appear, users can choose to reformat the estimate and show items grouped by the database category they’re from, by the trade they utilize, by the item’s action (all remove actions together, all replace actions together), or by the item description.

— Dozens of supplementary additions all designed to allow users greater flexibility, intuition, and robust execution capabilities while in the field with clients.

“We are very excited about the new technology components in the mobile claims v2.9 release” notes Boris Znebel, President of Symbility Solutions. “This latest offering will not only be a tangible benefit to our deep client base of carriers, independent adjusters, unique service providers and contractors today, but more importantly it will become an innovative and leading program to the rest of the industry.”
