Sapiens International Corporation, (Holon, Israel), a global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, announced today that after acquiring Hamburg-based InsurTech sum.cumo in January 2020 it has tailored its Sapiens IDITSuite for Property & Casualty and Sapiens ReinsuranceMaster to the DACH region – Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The vendor reports that discussions with potential customers in the region are underway.
IDITSuite and ReinsuranceMaster are fundamental components of Sapiens Platform for Property & Casualty, which the vendor describes as an end-to-end, cloud-based platform with advanced digital capabilities. It can be implemented as a pre-integrated platform, or as standalone modules. The platform is designed to address all property/casualty carrier needs across all lines of business and distribution channels, including an abundance of digital features, according to Sapiens.
“This is an ideal time for Sapiens to establish a leading presence in the DACH market,” comments Roni Al-Dor, president and CEO, Sapiens. “There are more than 400 potential customers in the region and many insurers still use their homemade, legacy IT systems. We believe that the DACH region, with its low insurance software adoption rate and large number of commercial, specialty and risk providers, will be a significant growth driver and one of our largest business regions in the next two to three years.”
Al-Dor says that sum.cumo’s local presence and customer base are expected to be critical success factors for Sapiens’ operation in the DACH region. “We envision that the combination of an award-winning P&C platform, backed by a highly professional local team with expertise in insurance and digital, will truly differentiate Sapiens’ proposition,” he adds.
“Sum.cumo is an established and rapidly growing company in the DACH region,” comments Björn Freter, founder and managing director, sum.cumo. “We will continue to serve our existing and future customers, promoting Sapiens IDITSuite, along with our extensive digital insurance know-how. As the Sapiens DACH division, we are excited to begin adapting products to the customers’ needs in collaboration with their teams.”
Tailoring IDITSuite to the Local Market
“COVID-19 has accelerated the trends towards digital readiness, self-service and the cloud,” comments Alex Zukerman, chief marketing and strategy officer, Sapiens. “Sapiens IDITSuite, our digitally-enabled and cloud-native P&C platform will help P&C providers in the DACH region transform for the modern era and ensure they possess the necessary agility to shift their businesses as required. As a one-stop shop for insurers, Sapiens has proven experience equipping our customers with the products and services they need to succeed. Our local team will help promote, tailor and implement the in-demand IDITSuite to the local market.”
Sapiens describes the IDITSuite for Property & Casualty as a customer-centric, component-based, packaged solution with easy maintenance and seamless integration for simplified, centralized operation. “The fully digital system is the core of the Sapiens platform for P&C insurance,” a vendor statement says. “It supports all end-to-end core processes, from underwriting, to renewals and claims handling. In addition to customer and agent portals and business intelligence, the software is compatible with other customer applications and provides real-time access from any device at any time. This means that new products can be introduced to the market quickly.”
The vendor describes Sapiens ReinsuranceMaster (formerly called Sapiens Reinsurance) as a comprehensive business and accounting system, providing a superior solution for all types of reinsurance contracts, treaty and facultative, and proportional and non-proportional. It enables insurers of all sizes to manage their entire range of reinsurance contracts and activities for all lines of business, including rich accounting functionality and reporting capabilities, according to the vendor.
