Sapiens International Corporation, (NASDAQ: SPNS) (TASE: SPNS), a leading global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, announced today that Equitable Life of Canada (Equitable Life) has launched Sapiens UnderwritingPro for Life & Annuities (formerly known as StoneRiver LifeSuite).

Equitable Life, a mutual life insurance company since 1920 that is based in Ontario, expects that this go-live will modernize its new business processes, including task automation. The company plans to significantly decrease turnaround times via UnderwritingPro, a web-based solution for automated underwriting and new business case management.

“After an extensive vendor and solution search, we selected Sapiens UnderwritingPro for its superior functionality, client references, depth of experience with Canadian life insurance companies and technical expertise,” said Karen Mason, Equitable Life’s senior vice-president of Individual Insurance. “The ability to configure UnderwritingPro for our specific rules and processes, as well as the straight-through processing and system integration, will streamline our business.”

Equitable Life anticipates a significant number of process improvements, new capabilities and cost savings, resulting in higher advisor satisfaction and faster turnaround times. Process improvements include automated ordering of underwriting requirements data and immediate approval on qualified insurance plans.

“Sapiens is pleased that our robust underwriting solution continues to help North American carriers modernize their businesses,” said Roni Al-Dor, Sapiens’ president and CEO. “It’s been a pleasure working with Equitable Life, one of the true leaders in the competitive Canadian market.”

Sapiens UnderwritingPro for Life & Annuities is part of Sapiens Platform for Life & Annuities. UnderwritingPro speeds new business processes for insurance carriers and their channels, offering an intuitive user interface with critical updates and task assignments provided on a real-time dashboard.
