Cranford, NJ – July 20, 2011 - Paragon Solutions, an advisory consulting and systems integration firm, announced today that it was the recipient of the new “Designed for EMC – xCP Solution Certificate” presented by the EMC Information Intelligence Group (IIG).

A preferred EMC Partner and recipient of EMC IIG’s Partner of the Year Award at the 2010 EMC World Conference and two Best Solution awards at the 2011 Conference, Paragon has been awarded the new Designed for EMC xCP Solution Certificate for their New Account Opening solution.

This certification differentiates us from many other EMC vendors/Partners. Certification adds to our credibility as we would be one of the very few partners out there who have EMC certified solutions,” said Paragon Director Insurance, Amit Datla. “In fact, Paragon is one of a few partners so far to get this certification for one of its solutions.”

Datla’s Process Optimization team followed a rigorous and stringent certification process that included providing design and requirements documentation, interviews and presenting EMC with a demo of the solution.

The Designed for EMC accreditation signifies that the EMC partner’s offering has met established criteria to ensure optimal integration and leveraging of EMC platform capabilities. The status delivers benefits to EMC customers by ensuring best-practice design and development, faster deployment, lower administration and upgrade costs, and establishing a simpler migration path when upgrading versions.

Paragon’s New Account Opening solution offers a single point of entry that provides agents and advisors with tools and information for the collection and review of documents. This enables easier application process tracking, fewer incomplete or dropped applications, faster application review and approval, and enhanced regulatory and corporate compliance. Automation of the new account process and content flow also supports sales/reviewer collaboration, resulting in quicker exception handling and improved cross selling and new product introduction capabilities.
