Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont purchases VUE IncentivePoint software to overhaul their incentive compensation and agent management capabilities

VUE IncentivePoint will help to drive agent relationships and create additional value sought after by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont in their field organization and back office operations

Coconut Creek, Florida, 4/18/2007 — Computer Solutions and Software International, Inc. (CSSI), today announced that Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont (BCBSVT), Vermont’s largest single health carrier, and one of only three carriers operating in Vermont, had very specific needs when it came to incentive compensation management. BCBSVT required a flexible solution able to process a variety of commission and incentive programs for its Brokers with the capability to integrate immediately with their Enrollment & Billing system. Further, the solution needed to be able to integrate with future regulatory and policy demands and allow BCBSVT to easily adapt its business rules in an ever-changing marketplace. VUE IncentivePoint is a powerful, flexible and intuitive tool that makes it easy for insurers to organize and streamline complex commission and incentive programs.

“BCBSVT had clearly defined its needs and was in the process of carefully evaluating vendor solutions to meet those needs, now and for the future, when they came to us.” said Stephen Bruno, President and CEO of CSSI. “We understood what they were looking for and knew that VUE IncentivePoint could deliver everything they wanted and more. Our understanding of our client’s business is a hallmark of working with CSSI and demonstrates why we have so many long-term clients.” BCBSVT currently utilizes a custom developed system to calculate and process all broker commissions and bonuses. The current system is limited in meeting the growing business requirements of the organization. The custom system does not easily provide the workflow, reporting and auditing capabilities that are required to meet BCBSVT’s business needs.

“After completing a thorough evaluation of vendors offering Incentive Compensation Management solutions, we selected CSSI’s VUE ICM due to the flexibility of configuration, intuitive user-interface, web portal capability for Brokers and most importantly, the knowledgeable staff at CSSI who are committed to success within the health care insurance industry. We are looking forward to improved audit controls, internal efficiencies and the ability to implement innovative commission and incentive programs that benefit the Broker, Employer, Member and BCBSVT.” said Ellen Yakubik, BCBSVT Marketing Director.

VUE IncentivePoint addresses each of BCBSVT’s concerns and will allow the BCBSVT marketing team to concentrate on growing their broker relationships and designing incentive programs that are innovative and responsive to market needs. The VUE IncentivePoint is robust and comprehensive and provides customizable modules to maintain agent related information, product information, agent policies with premiums attached, compensation and commission calculation, and customized reports generation. It is also synchronized to contain carrier, home office and other administrative information as desired. Over the past decade and a half, CSSI has been leveraging its in-depth insurance industry knowledge with “lessons learned” and business acumen to deliver innovative solutions that provide customer quality with measurable ROI. Utilizing VUE, CSSI will provide BCBSVT with a “total solution”. Our implementations include software, installation, training and enhancements at a fixed, not-to-exceed cost. We guarantee our deliverables and we have been doing it for over 15 years.
