Proclaim is utilised by all case handlers at Camps, providing a single desktop approach across every claim type. The integrated Proclaim development toolset provides the Camps technical team with an independent means to manage, configure, and expand the system as required.

The Results

Proclaim’s integration with the means that Camps has a future-proof solution to legislative change across all claim types (including RTA, EL / PL and clinical negligence). By implementing process guidelines, efficiencies have been introduced which bring simplified claim inception, reduced timescales, and improved quality.
