Holon, Israel and Denver, CO – April 25, 2017 – Sapiens International Corporation, (NASDAQ and TASE: SPNS), a leading global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, with a growing presence in the financial services sector, announced today that its fully owned subsidiary StoneRiver, Inc. entered into an agreement with Catholic Order of Foresters (COF) of Naperville, IL. COF has selected StoneRiver’s LifeApply® (electronic application and signature) and LifeSuite® (case flow and automated underwriting) software.
The StoneRiver solutions will enable COF to modernize its entire new business process, including automation of many tasks with anticipated benefits such as significantly decreased turnaround times and increased placement rates. Additionally, COF is considering leveraging the systems to expand its market presence by functioning as a business process outsourcer (BPO) for other fraternal societies.
After an extensive vendor and solution search, COF selected StoneRiver and its solutions, due to superior functionality, client references, depth of experience with fraternal societies and technical expertise.
With LifeApply and LifeSuite, COF anticipates a significant number of process improvements, new capabilities and cost savings, resulting in higher agent satisfaction, faster turnaround times and more consistent underwriting decisions, as well as:
- Simplification of the new business acquisition process
- Reduction in “not in good order” applications
- Electronic signatures
- Automated ordering of underwriting requirements data
- Automated/immediate approval on qualified insurance plans
- Configuration of COF-specific rules and processes
- Straight-through processing and systems integration
