Core insurance software consulting and services vendor Majesco (Morristown, N.J.) has embarked on a partnership with Appulate (Agoura Hills, Calif.), a provider of forms parsing and data bridging technology, whereby the Appulate Uplink solution will become an integrated component of Majesco Policy for P&C and Majesco Distribution Solutions. Majesco characterizes the partnership as offering its customers best-of-breed connectivity to any agency management system, improving efficiency and quality while reducing agent data entry. The partnership gains Appulate a distribution partner that offers a leading vendor’s 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,” comments Ed Ossie, COO, 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.”
Versatile Middleware Product
Appulate describes Uplink as a versatile 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. The solution allows ACORD data to be more easily 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, according to the vendor. When integrated with Majesco, the solution provides carriers with what that vendor calls a complete insurance distribution system that automates the entire submission workflow from quote generation to binding and issuance.
“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, Appulate.
