A joint statement on GCU’s selection says the vendor’s illustration solution aligned perfectly with GCU’s affinity/member approach to the market.  Sapiens stood out in the procurement process for its proven, user-friendly illustration solution that provides a transformative agent and member journey, according to the statement.

“Sapiens IllustrationPro solution will help us provide a superior agent and customer experience to support our members,” comments Scott Schuetz, VP, COO, GCU. “The intuitive and responsive point-of-sale capabilities provided by IllustrationPro will ensure our sales process is consistent and compliant, and that it meets the financial and insurance needs of our much-valued agents and members.  In addition, time-to-market was critical, having a solution with a proven out of the box illustration functionality was a key success criterion.”
