National Western Life Insurance Company (Austin, Texas) has selected Equisoft, a Montreal-based provider of digital business solutions for the insurance and wealth management industries, to replace its core legacy policy administration system to support its digital growth initiatives. As part of the modernization project, Equisoft will implement and provide cloud services for the Oracle Insurance Policy Administration platform. The multi-year engagement will also involve a major data migration of National Western Life’s existing life and annuity policies from their existing legacy platforms.
