EuroLife has chosen the Sapiens ALIS (Holon, Israel) core insurance suite to replace an inflexible legacy environment unable to meet the Nicosia, Cyprus-based insurer’s new product and speed-to-market needs, according to a vendor statement. Sapiens ALIS will support all of EuroLife’s life, investment and health lines of business.

EuroLife chose the Sapiens suite for its modern technology, depth of functionality, flexibility and ability to support the insurer’s diverse product portfolio, according to Sapiens. Sapiens’ “unique” implementation approach was also a key factor in selection, offering EuroLife a clear path to self-sufficiency through a combination of a joint implementation effort, consultation/training and Sapiens’ knowledge and skills transfer, the vendor reports.

“We selected Sapiens because of the rich business functionality of its software and the professionalism and quality of the personnel,” comments Savvas Sideras, Operations Manager, EuroLife. “We see a tremendous amount of value in Sapiens’ domain expertise and understanding of our business needs, as well as the cultural alignment between our organizations and the partnership spirit created.”
