Steve continued saying: “Ecclesiastical has unique reinsurance requirements and we were extremely impressed with the depth of reinsurance functionality and knowledge from Sapiens. We also appreciated Sapiens’ commitment to the UK and Ireland. We talked with many of Sapiens’ European customers and came away impressed with the company’s commitment to the region.”

The new platform is expected to deliver the following benefits:
