Automated Benefits Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Automated Benefits Corp. (TSX VENTURE: AUT), is pleased to announce Sirius Benefit Plans of Winnipeg, Manitoba, has begun the transition of their existing block of group insurance business to the Adjudicare software.
Sirius Benefit Plans (Sirius) is a full service third party administrator of employee benefit programs for small and large clients in the private and public sectors across Canada. Commencing in September 2009, Sirius placed all new business on the Adjudicare software and will now begin transitioning its existing block of business from its current supplier.
This transition will occur over the course of 2010 and, when complete, will represent an increase of 35% to the Adjudicare software in force block of business. The combination of this block of business together with organic growth from existing contracts will bring the amount of business processed on the Adjudicare platform to close to $60 million.
"We were looking for a solution to support both traditional and self-insured plans to support our clients' needs," states Ed Melna, president, Sirius Benefit Plans. "The combination of our administration software with the Adjudicare software enables us to control the entire process with a fully integrated solution."
