SGIA Selects SpringCM to Provide Document Management Solution for Insurance Industry
Nov 14, 2007 (08:11 AM EST)

CHICAGO, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- SpringCM, the leader in on-demand document management and workflow, today announced a new solution that tackles the complexity of document management in the insurance industry. In less than four months, Strategic Growth Insurance Associates, Inc. (SGIA), of Walnut, Calif. has used SpringCM to capture, store and retrieve more than 10,000 insurance applications comprising over 60,000 pages -- all with little minimal administrative overhead.

George Paganos, chief operating officer at SGIA, implemented SpringCM with great success during his tenure at insurance provider Health Net(R). "I knew from previous experience that SpringCM could handle document management for any business," Paganos stated. "When I moved to SGIA, the expert team at SpringCM was eager to help us solve the specific document management challenges associated with the insurance industry."

All insurance applications are faxed to SGIA and automatically routed into the SpringCM application via e-mail. A small administrative staff then enters applicant names, employers, start dates and other criteria into metadata fields that enable quick retrieval. SGIA employees can search by any specific metadata field to quickly retrieve the appropriate application. No time is wasted scanning and uploading applications or browsing through a complex folder structure to find the right application. SGIA's solution required no custom programming and was deployed in less than a day.

In addition to his role as COO at SGIA, Paganos also plans to become a SpringCM reseller by demonstrating SGIA's SpringCM solution to insurance company management teams seeking an on-demand document management and workflow solution.

"SpringCM hasn't just helped SGIA, it has created a viable solution that every insurance company can use," Paganos added. "I hope to introduce SpringCM's solution to other leading insurance companies and help reduce the administrative headaches that hinder the industry."

Dan Carmel, CEO at SpringCM, stated, "We're always thrilled when forward-thinking companies adapt SpringCM to meet their unique document management and workflow needs. SGIA, and specifically George, have taken full advantage of SpringCM's flexibility and found a perfect solution. We look forward to working with George as he unveils an insurance-industry SpringCM solution with the elasticity to adjust to any organization's processes."
