HARTFORD, Conn. -Travelers Property Casualty Corp. and Applied Systems, Inc. announced one of the industry's most significant implementations of industry-standard, ACORD-based agency/carrier interface (SEMCI) processing to support the transition of business relative to recent agreements between Travelers and other carriers.

Travelers has constructed a process utilizing Applied Systems' TAMCentral, the Internet-based ASP version of Applied's The Agency Manager software, to invoke interface and SEMCI tools and procedures to receive and format policy data, and transmit the data into Travelers' policy processing systems.    

"The flexibility and proven nature of our SEMCI processes allowed us, in less than one month, to begin seamlessly facilitating our business transitions," said David Findley, Senior Vice President of Operations for Travelers Commercial and Personal Lines.  "We worked with Applied Systems to train key transition personnel, and they supported our efforts to take the operation live.  The cooperation and shared SEMCI expertise between the organizations was critical to making this happen in such a short period of time."

 "We are excited that Travelers utilized Applied Systems and TAMCentral as part of this interface and SEMCI solution," said James P. Kellner, Chairman and CEO of Applied Systems.  "This project allows us to demonstrate our leadership in both agency management systems and interface.  Capitalizing on proven interface technology to download policy data from one company electronically and upload the data electronically to another company, using Applied's agency management system and ACORD standard interface tools available to thousands of independent agencies, is proof-positive that SEMCI is alive and well."
