Dick Arneson

“We looked at about 6 or 7 different systems and we could not find the product that really met our needs. One of JW’s existing clients recommended FileHandler and after learning more about the product and company, we realized JW and FileHandler were for us. Since moving into production on the system, our claims adjusters manage their claim files more quickly because all the information is on one screen. Our old system required the adjusters to go back and forth between screens to view related claim information.”

Anne Roberson

Operations Manager, Freeman Administrative Solutions, Inc.

“A very well designed product which manages an extensive amount of detail and a very responsive vendor. The customer service JW Software provides is exemplary.”

National insurance brokers, human resources consultants, and our national accounts marvel at this comprehensive, user friendly RMIS system.”

Their customer service is outstanding. Their software is easy to navigate and provides us with the opportunity to customize fields to meet our needs. Our clients are always very impressed with our system.”

Diana Craft

President & CEO, Providence Risk & Insurance Services, Inc.

“We’ve used File Handler for over a decade now and it’s the best claim-handling software we’ve found. We’ve had temp adjusters learn it quickly and comment that they’ve seen dozens of other systems and File Handler is the easiest they’ve seen. It’s intuitive and flexible. We can add custom screens with client-specific fields that only show for that client. With JW’s helpful staff we learned how to access the backend database directly and share data with our accounting software. Support is always same-day and competent. Medicare reporting is built-in and easy to maintain. File Handler is always being improved with new features. I recommend File Handler and wouldn’t use anything else.”
