Developed by Travelers National Accounts and Risk Management Information Services (RMIS), the mobile e-CARMA platform will be accessible on any mobile device with a Web browser, including the iPhone and BlackBerry smartphones, according to a Travelers news release.

"The mobile e-CARMA platform will allow risk managers to get away from their desks and laptop computers without sacrificing their access to important, mission-critical data. Soon, risk management professionals will be able to see summarized information, detailed reports and individual claim files from the field on their handheld device."
