Upgrade features fresh look, plus features for advanced disbursement, expanded options for identity theft prevention, and new reports.

Our users are excited about the system presented like other new applications designed for Windows XP as well as the user interface to be utilized by the new Microsoft Windows release due in late 2006.

Travis Software Corp., a leader of Advanced Employee Benefits Software Administration and provider of TravisCobra software, announced today the availability of TravisCobra Release 8.0, with several enhanced features for advanced disbursement, expanded options to mask Social Security numbers, new reports, and a whole new look and feel.

The premium disbursement process has been updated to allow a selection of three separate processing choices. Advanced Disbursement will generate disbursement records for all premiums that have not been disbursed and for all credits generated by various actions throughout the system. The process offers detailed choices as to the distribution methods and the designation of the individual disbursement items. Other processing choices include the Premium Disbursement function and End-of-Month processing.

Travis worked with a professional graphics firm to update the User Interface, creating a more pleasing color landscape; the new User Interface has increased the usability of the system.

"The system received a unique and updated look on all the display screens, giving you a fresh new look," says Alan H. Williams, founder and President of Travis Software Corp. "Our users are excited about the system presented like other new applications designed for Windows XP as well as the user interface to be utilized by the new Microsoft Windows release due in late 2006."

Since 2003, TravisCobra has allowed users to mask Social Security Numbers on all letters going to California. With the increase in identity theft and an increasing number of state laws governing SSN disclosure, TravisCobra 8.0 gives users the ability to fine tune when SSNs are used and when they are masked. Newly expanded is the "Omit the Social Security number" option on letters to allow for a more detailed approach. On a state by state basis, the SSN may be omitted, the last four digits of the SSN may be shown, all digits of the SSN may be masked, or the full SSN may be shown.

Several new reports are being added, including reports of a "Missing Rate Report" in the benefit plan section of the system so missing rates can be added on plans. There's also a new ability to print labels for employers and a report showing all receivables within a specific date range.

Several other enhancements are available with this new release and are detailed out in the TravisCobra Release Notes that accompany the release. To find out more about the TravisCobra 8.0 Release contact Travis Software at
