Alabama Workers’ Compensation Self-Insurance Fund (AlaCOMP, Montgomery) will replace its legacy core systems with Tropics Software Technologies’ (TST, Sarasota, Fla.) Tropics Breeze owing to the offering’s high level of functionality, according to a vendor statement. AlaComp will also implement Tropics’ Business Intelligence system and integrated self-service web portals for agents and policyholders.

Given the pace of change in the workers’ compensation market, AlaCOMP judged that it needed to adopt what it considered the latest software available on the market, according to Stephen Marino, president, AlaCOMP. Through extensive research we found that Tropics provided exactly what we needed and it was backed by a service guarantee,” Marino reports. “This software will streamline our daily activities and allow us to service our customers’ needs in a more efficient way.  We also felt that with Tropics Breeze we would be a step ahead of our competition and we could accelerate our company to the next level.”

AlaCOMP will take full advantage of the Breeze’s integrated productivity tools including integrated email messaging, rules engine and workflow management, document generation, and document imaging, according to TST.

The AlaCOMP deal marks the fifth implementation of what TST calls the new generation of the Tropics Breeze system since its introduction, according to Mike Mobar, president and CEO, TST. “Its quick penetration into the market is a testament to our expertise, commitment, and diligence in the application of new technology to produce comprehensive and efficient solutions for our new and existing clients,” he comments.
