Frank Cowan Company implements Synergize underwriting solution

Princeton, ON (Feb. 28, 2013) – Microdea, a software company headquartered in Richmond Hill, Ont., has implemented its Synergize Electronic Document Management and Workflow Solution in the underwriting department at Frank Cowan Company.

The Synergize Solution at Frank Cowan Company stores scanned images of claims and underwriting documents in the secure Synergize Document Repository, providing staff with shared real-time access to the files through the easy to use Synergize User Interface. Automated workflow routes the documents through predefined processes to the appropriate personnel, to improve processing efficiency and enable timely responses to customer inquiries.

“The Synergize product fits well into our application architecture. We have been able to convert existing documents in a highly automated fashion and populate several indexing fields directly from our production systems”, states Patrick Vice, Director, IT, Frank Cowan Company.

Frank Cowan Company has been familiar with the benefits Synergize delivers for quite some time. In 2004, Microdea implemented Synergize at the affiliated Cowan Insurance Brokers, where Synergize has provided significant cost savings, improved employee efficiencies, and increased customer satisfaction.
