IPD Advances Workplace Efficiency in Insurance

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - October 15, 2007) - IBM Information On Demand -- As a leading provider of Content and Process Management solutions for the Insurance industry, Image Process Design, Inc. (IPD) is pleased to announce their fourth generation application, code named EXIMYS. Since 1991, IPD has been the trusted partner of large North American Health and Life Insurance companies for their unique industry expertise and specialized application software. EXIMYS, built on IBM's FileNetP8 platform, has proven functionality that optimizes most major Insurance business processes in more than 20 different lines of business, including: claims, enrollment, case management, underwriting, customer service and more.

Many leading Insurance companies already rely on IPD to leverage IBM content and process platforms to more effectively automate mission-critical work processes. IPD significantly improves operational efficiencies, reduces cycle times, increases service levels and quality.

Developed on IPD's advanced framework and IBM's FileNet P8 platform, EXIMYS is an out-of-the-box Content Enabled Vertical Application (CEVA) that allows you to realize immediate business benefits from your investment in the FileNet P8 platform. EXIMYS provides:

--  Proven, packaged applications: EXIMYS has all of the advantages of
    fully packaged software: support, upgrades, and most importantly
    referenceability. EXIMYS delivers optimized Integrated Desktops for each
    targeted line of business, a comprehensive library of industry specific
    software services, and best practice process flows that fully leverage the
    power of the FileNet P8 platform.
--  Scalability and Performance: EXIMYS has been designed, developed and
    tested to meet stringent performance metrics that ensure scalability to the
    highest levels.
--  Open Architecture / Integration: EXIMYS has been designed with an open
    Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) to allow IPD clients to enhance the
    solution, integrate it with legacy applications, or to quickly react to
    changing business requirements.
--  Guaranteed ROI with low risk: Through IPD's proven implementation
    methodology, industry best practices, and proven software, EXIMYS allows
    you to achieve your ROI much faster than a traditional custom software
    build approach. IPD lowers your risk by providing software that has been
    architected and deployed, over a span of 15 years, at many of North
    America's largest insurance companies.

"IPD has spent years working with our customers to develop specialized methods for understanding current line of business operations and success metrics," said Steven Racine, CEO at IPD. "The resulting effort is our newest application, EXIMYS. Only through complete and thorough process understanding and depth of functionality, can our clients ensure that they are not forced to "revert back to paper" for segments of their operations -- destroying the expected ROI. As with everything we do, our commitment to our customers' success comes first."

The features of EXIMYS will be on display at the IBM Information On Demand Conference October 14 - October 19 in Las Vegas. IPD will have a booth in the IBM ECM Pavilion (#221) and executives will be on hand to discuss the new initiatives. For more information on the IBM IOD Conference, please visit:
