CARLSBAD, Calif., May 27, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Simsol® (a.k.a. Simultaneous Solutions, Inc.) – a leader in insurance claims software, announced a partnership with Geo Tactical Solutions, Inc. – the leader in solutions-based intelligent-photo management hardware to deliver a complete end-to-end photo capture solution streamlined to meet the insurance industry's unique workflow demands.

The photo capture solution, based around Simsol's software and Geo Tactical Solutions' hardware offerings, enables claims adjusters to virtually eliminate all time spent processing and integrating photographs during claims based workflows.

The solution allows an adjuster to easily pre-load specific claims information into the Ricoh G700SE-f digital camera and capture enriched claims images in the field every time they press the shutter button. Once in the field, the adjuster simply selects the appropriate claim within the camera's menu and then captures the images for that claim. Every image is embedded with the selected individual claim's information by the press of a finger. Once back in the office, the adjuster simply uploads the day's images into the Simsol software which in turn automatically places the enriched photographs into the appropriate claims. Photo integration has never been easier.

"Simsol has successfully integrated with Ricoh to provide a seamless connection between its digital cameras and our adjusting software. Each photo is automatically imported from the camera into the correct Simsol claim file. Every photo contains the picture's GPS location and claim file information. This information is printed right on the photos!" stated Dan Sutliff, Director of Training at Simsol. Dan can be reached at dannys@simsol.com.

This process improvement will save countless hours per day for claims adjusters thereby allowing for improved efficiency, increased productivity and elimination of human errors relating to image association. All in all, the solution allows for an increase in error-free claims and overall claims processing time by streamlining a traditionally cumbersome process.

"Geo Tactical Solutions is pleased to partner with Simsol to deliver our expertise in the intelligent-photo capture market to the insurance claims industry. We look forward to providing Simsol customers a tool that not only eliminates painful hours of photo matching, but also in looking ahead and developing future solutions as technology and the insurance industry evolves," says Matt Kidd, President of Geo Tactical Solutions, Inc.

The photo streamlining hardware solution is available from Geo Tactical Solutions with its enriched image capabilities being incorporated in the latest release of Simsol's claims software, slated to be released in early June 2011.
