Upon completion of a dispatch assigned to the glass retailer by an insurance Company and/or a Third Party Administrator (TPA), the glass retailer invoices the insurance company for payment of materials and labor associated with the work assignment. Glass retailers can electronically send their invoices into their point-of-sale provider or directly to the TPA or insurance company.
Point-of-sale providers batch invoices for respective insurance companies or TPAs and forward those invoices for approval and payment. Currently, either EDI or FTP are the two accepted methods for electronically sending invoices to the TPA or insurance company.
Glass retailers or point-of-sale providers have the opportunity to send XML invoice transactions to the TPA or insurance company through GLAXIS. By upgrading existing point-of-sale software or centralized processes at the POS, invoices can be sent to GLAXIS via the Internet using XML. GLAXIS will accept the Invoice XML transactions, provide a receipt acknowledgement of the invoices, and forward them to the appropriate TPA or insurance company for processing. In addition, GLAXIS will take the acknowledgement containing remittance advice information from the TPA or insurance company and provide that information to the appropriate POS provider or glass retailer.
