US Patent Awarded to Edcor

Full Release:   Troy, MI (February 1, 2011) – Edcor, the nation’s leading provider of corporate tuition administration solutions, is excited to announce that on January 11, 2011, the US Patent Office awarded a patent to Edcor Data services for newly developed scanning verification and tracking system.

In 2006, Edcor commissioned a major re-engineering of our entire suite of tools used to provide Tuition Administration services.  During this re-engineering process, the new scanning verification and tracking system was one of several new and improved tools Edcor introduced to improve the quality, accuracy and security of our services when administering our Client’s tuition reimbursement programs.

Adrienne L. Waystated, “This is great accomplishment for Edcor. This is a revolutionary new process and no one in the industry has anything like it!  It is a benefit to our Clients, and further solidifies Edcor as the industry leader in tuition program administration.  Patenting a process is a difficult achievement as it is exceedingly difficult to prove an original concept. We are proud of the work that went into this endeavor; it was worth the wait to receive the good news from the US Patent Office!”

At a high level, the Edcor claims or transaction processing system has the capability to convert a single electronic image into multiple images for review, verification, and adjudication. All data collected for each transaction is sent to our auto adjudication rules engine, where Tuition Assistance program rules are configured to meet each client’s specific policy for payment, and then applied systematically to determine and pay the amounts eligible for each employee.

Another exciting feature is the robust quality control functionality. The Edcor system has the ability to control the degree to which transactions are quality checked for each Processing Agent, Client, or a combination of both.   This approach to quality verification ensures error rates are monitored closely and utilized to continuously improve quality. Edcor continues to reinvest in its technology to ensure that our Clients benefit from industry best practices and the best service possible.

Patent Name: Scanning Verification and Tracking System Method

Patent Number: 7,869,098
