LARKSPUR, CA–(Marketwire) – Systema Software, a leading provider of claims software and services to the insurance industry, today announced that Consolidated Benefit Resources, LLC (CBR), has selected SIMS Claims as its new claims system.
With offices located in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, CBR is the largest locally owned third-party administrator (TPA) in the state of Oklahoma and exclusively services the Oklahoma workers’ compensation market. CBR selected SIMS Claims because the system offered the most robust and advanced set of features and functionality at the most cost-effective price point.
Jerry Whorton, president of CBR, commented: “We first met with representatives from Systema Software at the 2010 National Workers’ Compensation & Disability Conference, where we were able to perform a side-by-side comparison of potential solutions. By far, SIMS Claims had the most user-friendly interface and customizable business logic to accommodate our specific workflow requirements. Since we plan to transition from a paper to paperless environment, we wanted to speak with SIMS clients who had a similar automation strategy. These clients confirmed exactly what we wanted to hear — that the implementation and conversion went smoothly and occurred on time and within budget — which assured us that Systema Software was the right technology vendor.”
Jim Graflund, general manager and CFO at CBR, added: “We’ve been using the same legacy application for more than 10 years. In SIMS Claims, we found a modern, state-of-the-art system that could help us streamline our claims operations by electronically interfacing with business partners and automating our workflow. In addition, we knew SIMS was highly flexible and could easily adapt to our changing business needs.”
SIMS Claims is a comprehensive claims system, designed to maximize productivity and profitability in day-to-day operations. This system leverages .NET technology, Web Services, XML-based business rules, and SQL Server relational databases.
Jose Tribuzio, president of Systema Software, commented: “Since CBR had been relying on manual operations, we provided significant business analysis, consulting and client references to provide a vision of what was possible with SIMS. CBR will be able to leverage sophisticated business rules, automated alerts, and document imaging. With data consolidated on one platform, CBR will also benefit from SIMS’ sophisticated data reporting capabilities, equipping CBR and its clients with the data to make more informed business decisions and to better contain claims costs.”
