[CaseBuilder] provides access to top of the line software to control unemployment claims costs, without requiring our members to make any capital investment of their own.
Santa Barbara, Calif. (PRWEB) March 07, 2013
Unemployment Services Trust (UST) is pleased to announce that Equifax Workforce Solutions (EWS), the dedicated claims administrator for all UST members, has continued to invest in developing the most advanced unemployment cost management solutions available, as can be seen through their most recent software enhancement, CaseBuilder.
CaseBuilder—which provides another means of interacting with EWS through a secure, centralized location and addresses the UI Integrity Act that will go into effect in October 2013— allows UST members to better manage all unemployment claims activity and avoid penalty charges resulting from changes to the UI Integrity Act.
This new software enhancement will notify participants through email that they have new items that need to be reviewed, and allows members increased visibility into case detail, enhanced communications and process control, and increased accuracy and timeliness of response, which, over time, should help to drive down the cost of unemployment management.
“Now, nonprofits, which often have limited resources and restricted funding, can benefit greatly from this enhancement to UST’s services,” said Adam Thorn, Director of Operations at UST. “This provides access to top of the line software to control unemployment claims costs, without requiring our members to make any capital investment of their own.”
Thus far, favorite features include: the systematic management of all requests for information, the ability to establish personal user settings regarding how notifications are managed, and being able to upload documents automatically as members are responding to claims, etc.
CaseBuilder will not have any impact on existing follow-up procedures established between current UST members and their EWS claims representatives. It is simply another way of communicating with the claims administrator.
