Symbility expands into the U.S. Northeast

Automated Benefits Corp.

These four pilot programs provide a fantastic stepping off point for Symbility's rapid market adoption as an industry standard in wireless claims processing solutions," states James Swayze, chief executive officer, Automated Benefits Corp. "The demand in the U.S. for a mobile claims solution is remarkable and we look forward to enabling an insurance market that is recognizing how innovative software applications can help streamline processes and reduce expenses. We now have pilot programs running in all regions of the United States with both large and mid-market carriers. Based on our operations and delivery track record, the team is focused and confident on converting these into long term contracts."

Each program is expected to be completed in Q1 and are being conducted primarily in the Northeast region of the United States.
