ATLANTA, Nov. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Risk Sciences Group(SM) (RSG) offers new and powerful interactive features in its Dmitri Suite that allow users to view, manipulate and analyze claim and exposure data to improve their risk and safety management programs.
RSG, a Crawford Company (NYSE: CRDA; CRDB) and leading provider of risk management information systems (RMIS), has integrated greater data visualization capabilities throughout its Dmitri Suite of RMIS solutions, which was launched last year.

This type of interactive analysis provides actionable information that can positively impact their business, which is one of the most important contributions a RMIS can make."
In addition, key features of Dmitri now are available via a recently introduced mobile application that provides added convenience to users, Rarick said. "These improvements are part of continuing investments we're making in our RMIS products to help our clients manage their risks even more effectively."Advanced features built into the Dmitri system include multi-level sorting, group sorting with subtotals and collapsible groups, dynamic filtering and column preview.

Element 26, know IT!® provides real-time views into the details of claims.
