Pegasystems Delivers Next-Generation Warranty Claims Management

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – February 14, 2010Pegasystems (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leader in business process management (BPM) solutions, today announced a new end-to-end Warranty Claims Management solution that makes warranty claims processing more efficient. Prior releases of the solution have helped clients drive down costs and improve product quality, while boosting customer satisfaction. Warranty teams are now empowered to streamline and optimize processes throughout the entire warranty claims lifecycle, supporting innovative ways to leverage claims data to track product issues while retaining customers.

Pega’s industry-leading case management application helps organizations quickly define case solutions and manage case work with unparalleled control, visibility, and ease of use.  This latest release of Warranty Claims Management offers new capabilities to work more collaboratively, adapting, in real-time, to unexpected and ad-hoc tasks that can occur during the warranty claims life cycle.  This capability provides warranty organizations unparalleled oversight into the claims management process while reducing errors in entitlement verification, warranty authorizations, claims verifications, and claims approvals or rejections. 

The solution offers additional support to automotive companies and suppliers through enriched parts return processing with end-to-end automation, from initial dealer notification through ensuring that the requesting vehicle engineer receives notification of the replacement part arrival.  The parts return feature includes dealership to loading dock tracking, with integration to shipping systems and workforce management solutions.  The solution also includes supplier recovery processing, which provides timely supplier parts warranty verifications to track supplier claims against actual recovery to analyze and report on the cost recovery for failed parts.
