The ClaimVantage strategy is to support Open Systems

Canassurance Blue Cross (operating as Québec Blue Cross and Ontario Blue Cross) will partner with ClaimVantage to deliver a new claims platform to support disability and life claims. A key business objective for Canassurance Blue Cross is to provide its customers with a claim system that not only meets customer expectations, but will exceed them.

Canassurance Blue Cross is a leader in the travel insurance market in Canada. “Flexibility to support our customers is very important to us. Our partnership with ClaimVantage will ensure that we remain a leader in our market and provide superior claims services to our customers” says Marc Lamirande, Vice President of Canassurance Blue Cross.

“According to a recent claims survey only 30% of respondents said they can react to immediate market changes with existing systems”, said Leo Corcoran, CEO at ClaimVantage. “Canassurance Blue Cross requires a system that can be supported internally so that market changes and new insurance products can be supported quickly — this is key to maintaining a competitive advantage in the market.”

ClaimVantage will deliver this competitive edge to Croix Bleue Québec through the innovative use of ClaimView and ClaimPay integrated with Open Source rules and workflow. A key benefit for the customer is reduced customized code and improved speed to market for new products.
