SmartSimple Announces Partnership with Exacta

SmartSimple is pleased to announce our new partnership with service provider Exacta. This exciting collaboration will integrate interpretation and transportation services from Exacta into our Claims Management system.
Both Exacta and SmartSimple recognize the difficulty in using several different systems to schedule assessments. Developers on both teams have streamlined that process for our clients in claims management, enabling them to book Exacta’s interpretation and transportation services right from their SmartSimple system.

This new feature is available to all SmartSimple clients at no additional cost and will be configured by request. Transportation and interpreting services are automatically tracked and billed through provider's accounts with Exacta.

To request this feature, please contact SmartSimple at support@smartsimple.com or 1-866-239-0991.
