Using a proprietary insurance blockchain framework (CT-IBF), ChainThat supports re/insurance contract management and transactional processes in key areas of the insurance lifecycle including claims, accounting and settlement, billing and collections, and credit control, according to a statement from Xceedance. The ChainThat framework includes integrated business intelligence and reporting for real-time management and operational information.

ChainThat develops products for the commercial, specialty, and reinsurance markets, and markets secure online transactional services for re/insurance operations. Xceedance investment aims at enabling the two companies to drive the adoption of blockchain in re/insurance by developing and applying decentralized technology, data/analytics, and consulting services to a wide range of insurance organizations, according to Xceedence.

“This is a strategic alliance of two progressive companies that believe specialized services and new technologies can transform the re/insurance industry,” comments Arun Balakrishnan, CEO, Xceedance. “Our scale will help to accelerate the growth of ChainThat, and our clients will benefit from the blockchain, distributed ledger technology and smart contract expertise of our partnership. The deep industry knowledge and technology credentials of ChainThat complement our own. Our investment in the power and potential of ChainThat is an advantageous step in the expansion of both companies.”
