Paramus, NJ - August 10, 2001 - Indus Consultancy Services (ICS), today announced that Definity Health, a leading provider of consumer-driven health benefits has selected Kronos Enterprise Scheduler to meet the scheduling needs of their organization. Kronos Enterprise Scheduler is a full-featured job scheduling system written for Sun’s Java2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) environment. Definity Health plans to use Kronos Enterprise Scheduler to schedule data feeds into and out of their organization, content loads to their web site, and data maintenance processes.

With existing investments in J2EE technology, Definity Health found Kronos Enterprise Scheduler to be a good match for their organization. Support for products such as BEA Weblogic application server and Oracle database server was key.

Definity Health also liked the flexibility of the product. In addition to providing a core J2EE-based scheduling component, Kronos Enterprise Scheduler provides both Java-based and Web-based end-user applications for creating, maintaining, and scheduling jobs and for monitoring job executions. All of the features of these applications are exposed through an open API (application programming interface), which allows Definity Health to access the scheduling functionality from within their own applications. This gives Definity Health an overall scheduling solution that they can implement faster and for less money than with an in-house solution.

ICS is also committed to giving its customers the highest level of quality technical support. "ICS has listened to our enhancement recommendations and given us the ability to contribute to the future evolution of the product. They have been very responsive, even before our purchase, of recognizing our needs and incorporating them into future releases," said Chad Small, Software Developer at Definity Health, who was responsible for selecting Kronos Enterprise Scheduler. "Support to this point has been tremendous."

About Definity Health
Minneapolis-based Definity Health ( began operations in 1999 with the goal of providing health benefit programs that give consumers greater choice and increased responsibility over their healthcare decisions. Under the Definity Health benefit, members pay for healthcare services of their choice out of their Personal Care Account, an account provided by employers at a set amount each year. Any funds left in the Personal Care Account at year-end roll over and may be used by employees for future medical expenses. If an employee’s annual healthcare costs exceed funds in the Personal Care Account, health coverage is provided once a deductible is met. In addition, Definity Health provides extensive tools and resources to support consumers as they realize greater choice and exercise greater control over their health and wellness decisions.
