Mitchell's Compliance Manager Now Available in French

Solution Automatically Translates Repair Guidelines Into French, Increasing Canadian Appraiser Productivity and Reducing Cycle Time and LAE

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) -   Mitchell International, Inc., a leading provider of information, workflow and performance management solutions to the Property & Casualty claims and Collision Repair industries, today announced a solution to better serve its French-speaking customers -- the availability of WorkCenter Review's Compliance Manager in French. Compliance Manager now allows insurers to create and manage custom estimate requirements in French. These requirements can be distributed to field appraisers and DRP shops -- from the national level down to the individual estimator level -- producing more accurate estimates.

Compliance Manager provides a front-end audit application for field appraisers and DRP shops that launches automatically before the estimate is committed. Appraisers are able to make corrections to the estimate noted by the compliance review prior to upload. By ensuring estimates are in compliance before the insurer receives them can allow insurers to process estimates faster -- reducing cycle time.

The solution provides French part descriptions for part rules, bumper repair vs. replace, aftermarket sheet metal, and partial refinish alerts. It is also now compatible with native French versions of Microsoft® Windows® utilizing French Regional Settings for Anglais (Canada) and Anglais (Etats-Unis). These capabilities help eliminate the time-consuming process of translating repair estimates, resulting in significant productivity gains for Mitchell's French-speaking customers.

"We're pleased to provide French-speaking insurers the ability to better communicate with their direct repair shops and independent appraisers," said Bruce Carrick, Director of Product Management for Mitchell's Canadian Operations. "Receiving alerts in French will simplify the appraiser's job by removing the extra step of having to translate compliance results, which reduces the potential for errors and speeds the claims process."

Mitchell WorkCenter™ is an end-to-end claims settlement solution that brings accuracy and efficiency to everyone involved in the claim. Combined in a powerful interconnected workspace are feature-rich modules that create a simplified workflow for claims staff and trading partners.
