LAS VEGAS May 23, 2012 EMC WORLD
The Best ApplicationXtender Solution award recognizes a partner who has demonstrated excellence and innovation in delivering a world-class document imaging and workflow-based solution using ApplicationXtender and ApplicationXtender Workflow. To be considered, EMC partners must present a solution that automates critical business processes, improves efficiency and demonstrates the advantages of ApplicationXtender.
Business Imaging Systems won this award for its implementation of ApplicationXtender at Alfa Insurance® for the processing of new life insurance policies. BIS Professional Services employed various EMC technologies – ApplicationXtender, ApplicationXtender Reports Manager, ApplicationXtender Workflow Manager, DiskXtender® and Centera® – to reduce a multistep process into one simple interface and digital workflow. The solution replaced manual filing and assembly procedures that were slowing down Alfa’s policy approval process and costing the company valuable time and resources. Furthermore, because documents were kept only in paper form and housed in filing cabinets, they were at serious risk for loss and misuse. If files were lost, the entire process would have to begin again.
Today, Alfa uses ApplicationXtender and the solution’s other supporting technologies to their full potential, and all labor-intensive manual processes have been replaced in their entirety. With simple and secure access to digital documents, coupled with a sophisticated automated workflow, the BIS solution has enabled Alfa to increase policy approval process efficiency. Approval time on new policies represents a 500 percent increase in efficiency. All policy documents are now secure in the ApplicationXtender repository and backed up regularly, and a disaster recovery plan was established. The success in the life insurance department has led to additional implementations in Alfa’s home and auto departments.
