News Release - SmartSimple's Service Provider Integration API


We are releasing our Service Provider Integration API this week! This feature supports our customers in the Medical Claims Management market by providing the ability to automatically schedule third party services, including transportation and interpretation, directly from within a case in SmartSimple.

For customers it means less admin work and faster turnaround when scheduling.For providers it creates the ability to directly integrate their services with the SmartSimple network of insurers and their medical partners.

The technical details are all in the SmartSimple wiki http://www.smartsimple.org/wiki/index.php/Service_Provider_Integration but give your account manager a call if you need to walk through what this new functionality can do for you!

SmartSimple is Making More Moves in the International Research Management Market with the RMAS Project.


Shared Services, Open Standards and Collaboration are some of the biggest buzzwords in technology today. Of course every so often buzzwords are given weight when action is taken.

This is certainly the case for the Research Management and Administration System Project (RMAS), an initiative launched by several UK universities to provide a procurement framework for Research Management and Administrative Systems under 9 distinct lots:

  • Lot 1 – Workflow
  • Lot 2 – Electronic Document Management
  • Lot 3 – CRM
  • Lot 4 – Academic Expertise
  • Lot 5– Funding Sourcing Tool
  • Lot 6– Proposal Management
  • Lot 7 – Costing and Financial Management of Projects
  • Lot 8– Post Award Management
  • Lot 9– Outcomes and Outputs


With considerable experience under our belts SmartSimple is excited to be a qualified vendor in 7 of the 9 lots. In addition to assisting research funders and researchers we are particularly excited to assist with the wider adoption of CERIF standards with the introduction of the SmartSimple CERIF adapter.

With this news and our recent relationship with CASRAI we are looking forward to interacting with the international research community and assisting them in getting the most out of every research pound or dollar.
