Majesco, Appulate Announce Strategic Partnership
Staff Writer | January 14, 2016
Majesco, a global provider of core insurance software, consulting and services for insurance business transformation, and Appulate, a provider of forms parsing and data bridging technology, announced a strategic partnership in which Majesco will offer Appulate Uplink as an integrated component of Majesco Policy for P&C and Majesco Distribution solutions.
The partnership will offer Majesco customers best-of-breed connectivity to any agency management system, improving efficiency and quality while reducing agent data entry. In turn, Appulate will gain a distribution partner that offers solutions for policy and distribution management for insurance carriers.
“With this partnership, Majesco is able to offer its customers an effective and affordable turnkey solution for agent connectivity that will strengthen agent channel relationships while streamlining the insurance placement process to support evolving customer engagement strategies,” says Ed Ossie, COO for Majesco. “Adding Appulate to our partner ecosystem enhances our solution as we help our customers adapt to the changing distribution channel demands and customer expectations.”
“The industry has been vocal about the need to increase connectivity between stakeholders in the quoting process and through this partnership, we are able to offer Majesco customers a great way to do that,” says Dimitri Nikouline, CTO and co-founder at Appulate.
Uplink is a middleware product that can either bridge data from the agent’s internal management software or be used by a carrier as a back-office forms parsing tool. It allows ACORD data to be moved throughout the submission workflow to improve efficiency, and reduce the time associated with completing carrier application forms without the costly transaction fees associated with other solutions. When integrated with Majesco, the solution provides carriers with a complete insurance distribution system that automates the entire submission workflow from quote generation to binding and issuance.
Majesco Policy is pre-defined, integrated, and maintained for ISO bureau content via Majesco Bureau and Content Services for all lines of business and states, enabling speed to market opportunities for insurance companies to introduce new products and reach new markets quickly and cost effectively to capture market share.
Majesco Distribution Management is a standalone, modern solution designed to enable insurance carriers to manage the entire distribution landscape with comprehensive business capabilities that enable diverse channel options, support the increasing need of an multi-channel environment, effectively administer a range of distribution channels and producers from registration to termination, compensation and performance management, and launch innovative contests and personalize payment schedules for producers to help drive business growth.
