Ci&T Designed and Launched SulAmerica's First Mobile Application for Its Health Plan Customers

App Offers Digital ID Cards, Claim Status Updates, Plan Information and Access to Catalogs of Accredited Doctors and Pharmacies Throughout Brazil

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - Ci&T, a Nearshore provider of value-driven web and mobile application services and software product engineering, today announced that it designed and launched the first mobile application for SulAmérica, one of Brazil's largest independent insurance companies. Available for the iPhone and Android, the app offers SulAmérica's health plan customers digital ID cards, on-the-go access to plan and claims information and a comprehensive list of accredited doctors and pharmacies throughout Brazil. 

Ci&T's high-performance team designed and developed a highly usable, multi-service app for SulAmérica customers. The first version of the app includes digital ID cards, which frees up members from always carrying actual, and sometimes multiple, ID cards in their wallets. The app also provides claim status updates, detailed information about individual plans, as well as SulAmérica company policies and a searchable database of accredited doctors and pharmacies in Brazil. Users can search by specialty and location and save their favorites. 

"Our main goal in developing this app with Ci&T was to truly embrace mobile health and offer our policyholders alternatives to obtaining the information they need anytime, anywhere," said Marco Antunes, director of operations, SulAmérica. "Since people rarely leave the house without their phones, our app provides customer with ID cards, policy information and myriad of medical professionals at their fingertips." 

Ci&T utilized the Google App Engine cloud environment for the SulAmérica app to deliver a secure and robust integration with the company's backend IT systems. While most apps are developed with standard platforms such as Java and .NET, Ci&T is leading the trend of leveraging the cloud for application development due to its speed, cost-savings, reliability and security.

"Ci&T's high-performance teams take special care to develop apps that are easy to use, easy to navigate and easy for incorporating into the every-day lives of users," said Paulo Camara, head of mobile, Ci&T. "The first version of the app brings SulAmérica into the world of mobile healthcare and Ci&T is continuing to work with the company to make the app even more robust. By adding more services to the second generation of the app, SulAmérica will continue to meet and exceed the ever-evolving needs of its customers living in a mobile world."
