08:00 EST Monday, November 04, 2013

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 4, 2013) - Symbility Solutions Inc.® (TSX VENTURE:SY)(OTCQX:ATBEF), provider of cloud-based and smartphone/tablet-enabled claims technology using the most comprehensive data for the property and casualty insurance industry, is proud to announce that Pekin Insurance, a multi-line insurance carrier concentrated in the mid-western United States, has signed a multi-year contract to integrate Symbility's claims processing and estimating technology into its operations.

"In order to improve the way Pekin Insurance processes and settles claims, it was essential that we choose a solution that was easy to learn and didn't require a complex deployment process," said Richard Olsen, Corporate Claim Manager at Pekin Insurance. "Symbility's product suite meets all of our needs, especially from a usability perspective, and we are confident that this intuitive mobile technology will help us achieve significant operational efficiencies and ensure that our clients experience greater speed and convenience when it comes to claims settlement."

"The implementation of Symbility's products takes a fraction of the time it normally takes to set up conventional, non-cloud-based software solutions and we are very pleased that Pekin Insurance chose to adopt our technology to modernize their claims processing system," said James Swayze, CEO, Symbility Solutions. "We are excited to welcome Pekin Insurance to the Symbility cloud and look forward to working with their teams as they begin implementing our products."

Pekin's Home Insurance division will implement Symbility's Claims Connect ®, an innovative and robust property and casualty claims workflow management software that will reduce claims cycle time and increase accuracy in all aspects of the claims handling process, as well as Symbility's Mobile Claims ®, the industry's most intuitive smartphone and tablet-enabled field estimating solution in enhancing adjuster and third-party contractor productivity.
