Marlborough, MA, May 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — With a business model based on using innovative strategies and state-of-the-art technology to reduce costs and increase efficiencies for business customers, Omaha National Underwriters (ONU) of Omaha, Nebraska, deployed OneShield Market Solutions (OMS) to provide an integrated technology offering for policy, billing, claims, loss prevention and medical case management administration for workers’ compensation across the United States.
OneShield’s cloud-based application empowers insurers and other specialty markets to automate and streamline the handling of all stages of a product portfolio lifecycle with custom rate handling, billing and payment plans, and wide-ranging workflow-specific procedures.

- Unify and automate the policy, billing and claims handling processes.
- Improve efficiencies and reduce risk with consistent handling of files.
- Adopt a truly paperless file management process.
