Symbility Solutions, a Canadian company that has developed a mobile claims system focusing principally on residential and commercial property claims estimation, has joined the Microsoft Insurance Value Chain (IVC) partner program.
By joining the Microsoft IVC, Symbility will enhance the marketing of its Mobile Claims solution with assistance from Microsoft account executives. As with other IVC partners, Microsoft sales personnel will be trained on the Symbility Mobile Claims system in an effort to generate new line of business wins for Symbility as the company penetrates the U.S. insurance market.
“We are proud to have joined the Microsoft IVC partner program to help provide an integrated, go-to-market approach offering real claims value to the market,” said Eric Embacher, the chief software architect of Symbility Solutions. “By joining Microsoft’s IVC, we are extending our leadership position as we continue to innovate within our mobile claims system, built upon the latest Microsoft .NET and Microsoft mobility technologies.”
Available for most Microsoft Windows-based mobile and pen-based handheld platform, the Symbility Solutions system allows insurance adjusters and contractors to write and process claims on-site with greater accuracy, allowing insurance companies to settle claims faster. The core of the solution is Symbility.NET, a claims software platform that is an Internet-based communications hub, data warehouse and analytics engine. The Symbility Mobile Claims solution is the lightweight pen-based mobile application that is used to review claims, gather information, create and edit estimates in the field.
Symbility Solutions has offices in Waterloo, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec. The company now counts insurance companies such as Allstate Canada, The Economical Insurance Group and Gore Mutual Insurance Company, as well as other claims professionals as users of its solutions.
