Keeping up to date with estimating platforms in the Property Claim industry- Symbility and MSB Merge/ Farmers and OH windpool now using SymbilityJanuary 31, 2012
I firmly believe adjusters and claim managers need to stay current with changes in the Property and Casualty Claims industry and this week’s hot topic is announcements from Symbility and Bloomberg news that Farmers and the Ohio Windpool are now going to be using Symbility software. You can view both news releases on the following links:
Here is the news release over at Bloomberg news as well:
To top off those news releases, today we received a news release from Property360.com announcing that MSB (Integriclaim) and Symbility are merging their software firms. I especially appreciate the fact their CEO’s are hosting a webinar on February 2, 2012 to explain the merger of their two software firms. I’m glad I got my registration in before they reach capacity.
I love Symbility claims software and always used to use the demo of an estimate, scope notes, diagrams and photos in our Fundamentals of Claims class in our estimate reconciliation class with new adjusters. Unfortunately, the last I looked that demo was no longer up on their site.
The concern from an independent adjuster standpoint with Symbility was that they were charged on a per claim basis. This is wonderful on daily claims when an independent receives a limited number of claims per month. Is when they did not like the concept of the per file fee was when working catastrophe losses as even at $5.00 per claim if they received 100 catastrophe claims that would be a $500.00 per month expense which is much greater than the monthly fees charged by Xactware for Xactimate software.
It will be interesting to see how well this Symbility software will be accepted by carriers as it is the insurance company who dictates which estimate software the independent adjusting firms must use in estimate preparation.
There are many discussions going on over at Linkedin on this hot topic.

2012 Independent Adjuster Carrier Catastrophe Certification Workshops- Contact Eberls Claims Service for InformationJanuary 30, 2012
I am frequently asked for the location and dates of upcoming Property and Auto carrier certification classes with carrier certifications as one of the top requests.
I highly recommend any independent adjuster seeking specific dates and locations contact Eberls Claims Service who is a highly regarded independent adjusting firm. I know they have a training headquarters in Dallas and provide excellent courses for Xactimate Training by one of the handful of people who are actually a Certified Xactimate trainer by Xactware (Jennifer Whitaker).
I have many adjusters who are on their rosters who highly recommend Eberls. I have also supervised Eberl’s adjusters for many years when performing as a National Catastrophe manager for State Farm as well as a Field Team Manager so I feel very confident recommending them.
They can fill you in on the experience requirements, dates of upcoming carrier certification exam dates.
Email Tina Lehman at Eberls at TLehman@Eberls.com to submit your resume and request information should you be looking for a Carrier Certification or other assignments as Eberls is also a Citizens of Florida adjusting firm and I have no doubt respresent many other carriers providing you with an excellent opportunity to receive assignments given your experience level and professionalism meets their needs.
