Sapiens | July 01, 2021

Sapiens International Corporation, a leading global provider of insurance software solutions, announced the availability of two new cloud-native components of its DigitalSuite, a dynamic, digital engagement and enablement platform that helps insurers accelerate their digital transformation: Sapiens Journey and Form Composer. Sapiens Journey & Form Composer, created and developed especially for the insurance market by some of the industry's top digital specialists, can be deployed as a stand-alone solution or as part of a full digital enablement program.

Sapiens Journey & Form Composers enable business users to introduce and manage current journeys and workflows and design and build new ones without writing code. Simple drag-and-drop, low-code functionality, and a library of widgets and components enable insurers to cut costs and speed time to market without relying on IT personnel. In addition, the modules are very user-friendly, graphic, clear, and easy to publish.

Sapiens Journey Composer allows insurers to digitize their existing journeys to improve every stage of the insurance lifecycle for consumers and internal users. Sapiens Form Composer digitizes documentation and forms, allowing insurers to rapidly change journeys by converting conventional PDFs into new digital formats. Together, they can improve existing client journeys while also developing new ones in new businesses or for new lines of insurance. In addition, the modules provide insurers the tools they need to quickly configure and deploy new products, easily integrate data sources, and eliminate costly IT resources, allowing them to control the process of intuitive journey management and creation fully.

Sapiens DigitalSuite's modular, cloud-native components can be connected with insurers' existing technology landscape to build new, digitally native journeys, reinvent consumer experience using new technologies, or cater to new lines of business. Sapiens DigitalSuite's open architecture and seamless connection through advanced APIs, the insight of data-driven business processes, and the agility of a cloud-native environment allow a fast entry into new markets.

CCC Information Services | May 05, 2021

CCC Information Services Inc. (CCC), a leading SaaS supplier to the P&C insurance industry, announces the introduction of an enterprise payments network to power electronic payments through the insurance and automobile ecosystems. The company intends to extend its CCC® Payments capabilities to allow digital payments between insurers and their business partners, thus lowering administrative costs and cycle time while improving customer satisfaction. CCC's network of over 30,000 businesses will benefit from their CCC connections because payments functionality is built to integrate with their CCC solutions, presenting payment details inside existing workflows. CCC Payments transactions initiated by insurers will be handled by Nvoicepay, a third-party financial services provider and a pioneer in payment automation software, which is expected to begin in the second half of 2021. CCC first launched electronic payment capabilities in 2019, offering collision repair customers an easy way to manage customer-to-shop payments. "CCC is systematically bringing digitization to every area of the automobile and insurance industries," said Barrett Callaghan, senior vice president of markets and customer success at CCC. "By expanding CCC Payments, we want to remove two significant market pressure points: paper checks and phone calls." Our plans to incorporate CCC Payments into our workflow solutions would be important, particularly for our collision repair and lender customers, who will be able to use their single access to CCC to handle digital receipt of insurer payments. CCC is eager to expand its digital capability to cover payments, as it continues to meet the industry's vision for straight-through processing." CCC Payments is designed to enable insurers to accept any form of B2B digital payment through P&C lines. Recipients using the payment solution would only need to insert their payment details once with the processor for it to be seamlessly and securely deployed through the CCC network, making it simple to enable payments at scale. CCC Payments is intended to enable straight-through processing as well as configurable workflows, enabling insurers to select the level of automation for payment approvals. Furthermore, all insurers and payees will access premium notifications and status updates directly from their existing CCC environment. "CCC is proud to help more than $100 billion in commerce per year through its technology and connections," said Shivani Govil, CCC's chief product officer. "CCC intends to expand our core capabilities and advance the digitization of the P&C insurance economy through our expected expansion in digital payments. We anticipate that CCC Payments will open up a whole universe of possibilities for our customers to enhance their performance and the customer experiences they deliver."
