StreamServe Financial Services™ Extends SAP Business Processes with Integrated Document Processing and High-volume Printing

BURLINGTON, MA USA – November 12, 2007 – StreamServe® Inc., a global leader in document processing and Dynamic Enterprise Publishing solutions, today announced the release of StreamServe Financial Services designed for use with the SAP® for Insurance solution portfolio. The solution is the third product to be endorsed by SAP, following endorsements of StreamServe Financial Services™ designed for use with the SAP® for Banking solution portfolio, and StreamServe Utilities™ designed for use with the SAP® for Utilities solution portfolio.

StreamServe Financial Services is integrated with SAP for Insurance to deliver high-impact results when used with insurance applications such as SAP Claims Management and SAP Collection and Disbursements for Insurance. The solution extends the value of SAP for Insurance with high-volume document extraction, assembly, consolidation, and delivery. Bottom-line results include enhanced efficiency, profitability, and customer satisfaction.

By combining SAP business processes with StreamServe document process capabilities insurance organizations gain added management and control over their documents at every stage of a process. As a result, organizations can enhance customer communications by providing personalized and dynamic claim updates delivered through notifications, adjustments, and payment documents.

“Insurance organizations are under tremendous pressure to deliver increased value to customers in an increasingly competitive industry,” said Chris Stone, president and CEO of StreamServe, Inc. “Given that the claims function alone accounts for between 75 and 90 percent of total administrative costs within the insurance industry, our solution allows companies to reap tremendous savings while enabling the presentment of unified communications that demonstrate value to customers and partners.”

Designed to provide streamlined customer communications, StreamServe Financial Services enables the delivery of documents in any format, through any channel such as print or electronic media according to customer specifications while enabling the consolidation of multiple customer documents into single mailings. For example, claims summary documents typically mailed individually each time a claimant activity occurs can be consolidated into a summary document, or collated, sorted and distributed via a single envelope.

“We are pleased to endorse another solution in StreamServe’s Financial Services line, which will benefit our customers in the insurance industry,” said Leo Schneider, senior vice president, Insurance Industry Business Unit, SAP. “SAP for Insurance enables insurers to leverage existing intelligence data in claims, billing, vendor management and underwriting to maximize their business advantage and ensure consistent customer satisfaction while providing the ability to innovate and prepare for future challenges. Used together with StreamServe’s latest SAP-endorsed business solution, we can improve efficiency, profitability and customer loyalty for our customers in the insurance industry.”

SAP-endorsed business solutions are complementary to SAP software offerings, developed in accordance with SAP development guidelines, and provide additional capabilities and flexibility for businesses running SAP solutions. StreamServe integrates customer communications capabilities within the framework of the SAP NetWeaver® platform.

“Insurance companies are faced with increasing pressure to improve their sales, underwriting, claims and customer service processes in order to be competitive and sustain profitable growth,” said Kimberly Harris-Ferrante, research vice president at Gartner, Inc. “Focus on streamlining and automating process is a critical success factor in both the North American and European marketplaces. Insurers taking this approach will find multiple benefits including faster transaction processing, improved customer satisfaction, improved productivity of employees and agents, and reduced processing costs.”
