Other companies that we looked at had similar products, but they lacked knowledge of the types of documents we wanted to produce. It was clear that Whitehill had significant expertise to offer.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 5, 2007 –-
Whitehill Technologies, Inc. today announced that Ameritas Group is using software from Whitehill Technologies to generate policies, certificates and ID cards for its group customers.
“Ameritas sets itself apart by having very flexible systems,” said Rod TerMaat, Business Analyst, Ameritas Group. “We don’t have any ‘canned’ products. We go above and beyond, customizing each of our group plans to meet an employer’s specific needs.”
Such an agile business model requires agile systems. Ameritas is using IStream Publisher from Whitehill Technologies to generate custom-tailored policy documents, as well as certificates and ID cards for each individual member.
“We chose Whitehill because of their experience with insurance and financial services,” said TerMaat. “Other companies that we looked at had similar products, but they lacked knowledge of the types of documents we wanted to produce. It was clear that Whitehill had significant expertise to offer.”
Ameritas stores the generated documents in an electronic repository, and displays them online through a secure web portal. This gives customers instant, easy access to their documents, and has resulted in significant savings for the insurer.
“Postage is an incredible cost in our industry,” TerMaat said. “We spend a significant amount of money every year mailing out certificates. We hope to eventually save a large percentage of that expense.
“Whitehill is always willing to help us find new and better solutions,” TerMaat continued. “We’ve developed a good relationship. They’ve become the experts in finding the best way to accomplish what we need to do.”
“This is the kind of customer success story we pride ourselves on here at Whitehill,” said Paul McSpurren, President & CEO, Whitehill Technologies, Inc. “We strive to create a delighted customer on every project, and we find it very gratifying that Whitehill has been able to help Ameritas improve its operations and accelerate its business.”
