Synergize Enhances Business Processes and Controls Costs

Richmond Hill, ON, May 26, 2009 – To stay competitive, companies must control costs and improve operating efficiencies. 

Microdea’s Synergize Document Automation solution enables companies to achieve these critical objectives by integrating their people, paper and processes into a streamlined, efficiently operating enterprise. 

Johnston Group Inc., a leading Canadian Group Insurance and Third Party Administrator, selected Synergize to enhance their business processes, control costs and improve operating efficiencies.

Located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Johnston Group Inc is one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies. Currently they provide benefit services to more than 27,000 small to mid size businesses and their employees; process over 25,000 monthly claims and handle 26,000 monthly inbound calls. Each claim and call initiates multiple business processes and accompanying documents.

“As our business continues to grow, so does the amount of documentation sent and received via email, paper and fax. Synergize provides advanced search and storage capabilities for all formats and a level of security that is not possible using paper files,” said Ed Zeghers, Senior I.T. Manager, Johnston Group Inc.

Johnston Group Inc’s Underwriting Department will initially utilize Synergize. Automating labour and paper -intensive tasks will provide quickly available, error-free and secure information at a lower-cost. With real-time access to information, authorized users will provide faster customer service.

Synergize will next be rolled-out to Johnston Group Inc’s Claims and Administration departments “which will help us better manage and integrate information across our entire organization,” added Ed Zeghers, Senior I.T. Manager, Johnston Group Inc.
