PITTSBURGH, Pa, and SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.― August 03, 2004 SEEC, Inc., a leading provider of legacy modernization solutions for insurance, financial services and manufacturing, and Enterprise Web leader Plumtree Software (Nasdaq: PLUM) announced today that North Carolina Farm Bureau Insurance Group (NCFB) has selected SEECs Plumtree-powered customer service application. This application will be integrated to NCFBs corporate portal as part of its Policy Center Community and will allow employees to more easily view policy, billing, and claims history. The Policy Center, built with SEECs application components and the Plumtree Enterprise Web Suite software, brings all of NCFBs core systems together into a new, powerful composite application enabling NCFB staff to access and view policy holder information in real-time.

SEEC was able to deliver a working proof of concept in under four weeks, proving that it could provide the capabilities to meet our high standards for usability and to streamline key business processes, said Todd Dixon, portal project manager of NCFB. The SEEC customer service application powered by Plumtree will be available initially to our internal user community with future plans to deploy to our external network of 800 agents. With the application in place, our agents will have a consolidated view of the data they rely on to easily handle customer inquiries, eliminating the need to jump from screen to screen to answer specific questions. We believe that by having easier access to information, we will immediately see efficiency improvements that will directly impact our bottom line.

SEECs component based integrated customer service application for NCFBs Policy Center Community will provide employees with a single view of customer information in real-time across disparate policy, billing, claims and other systems. The SEEC application can provide NCFB employees with the tools to reduce customer service time and costs, improve customer satisfaction, and more effectively up-sell and cross-sell through its customer call centers. In the future, the same application can be used by NCFB to provide customers and agents with self-service capabilities that could result in significantly reduced costs.

We are pleased to be working with NCFB and Plumtree Software on this project. Because of our extensive expertise in developing insurance applications and the flexibility of Plumtrees Enterprise Web Suite products, we were able to quickly integrate our components in to the Policy Center Community. This will help NCFB to retrieve live data from its policy, billing and claims systems quicker and easier than before, said Bill Lipsin, president and CEO of SEEC, Inc. We are confident that NCFB will gain significant process improvements using our combined technologies.

Whats in NCFBs Policy Center Community?
Prior to deploying the Plumtree Enterprise Web Suite and the SEEC application, NCFB employees were faced with the challenge of accessing multiple systems, with different user interfaces and authentication credentials to support their policyholders. NCFB deployed Plumtree as a framework for assembling content and functions from core, back-office insurance systems, and delivering new composite applications that satisfy the diverse requirements of twenty-one separate lines of business.

Through the Policy Center Community NCFB employees are able to:

Create granular, personalized dashboards for different roles and business functions, organizing the content and application services needed for employees to do their jobs more effectively;
Gain centralized access to policy holder information, billing detail and claims history;
Issue comprehensive searches for client policy information, documents, project information and application services through a single search experience;
Use services from legacy, mainframe applications for policy management and claims history, without reauthenticating;
Categorize thousands of forms, ratings and business manuals, and other documents into a searchable content directory, and then snapshot relevant content into the personalized user experiences; and
Integrate powerful new services for collaboration and Web publishing alongside core legacy insurance applications.
