Leading South African financial institution seeks to introduce new products quickly and expand to other countries
Sapiens International Corporation, (NASDAQ and TASE: SPNS), a leading global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, with an emerging focus on the broader financial services sector, announced today that FNB - a financial institution providing personal, private, business and commercial banking services to millions of customers across South Africa and Africa - has selected Sapiens ALIS for the launch of its new life insurance company.
FNB recently secured a license to launch a new life insurance company, prompting the financial institution to find and implement a new policy administration system. After evaluating available solutions, FNB concluded that Sapiens ALIS, a core solution suite that supports the complete policy lifecycle across a wide variety of products, together with Sapiens' proven delivery proposition, would help the bank realize its goals of obtaining the agility to introduce new products to market quickly.
"After a comprehensive evaluation and selection process that included full-cycle proof of concept, FNB chose Sapiens ALIS in order to achieve our vision of becoming South Africa's leading financial services institution by 2025," said Lee Bromfield, chief executive officer at FNB Life. "Because we've set an ambitious implementation deadline for the end of the year, it was important for us to select a partner with an established delivery record and industry expertise to help us achieve our objectives."
"We are pleased for the opportunity to expand our footprint in South Africa - a region where we have been doing business for over two decades," said Raj Ghuman, regional vice president of sales at Sapiens. "We warmly welcome FNB to the Sapiens family and we are highly motivated to ensure that FNB successfully launches its new life insurance product portfolio."
Sapiens ALIS supports any combination of life, pension, annuity and medical products for the individual and group markets, enabling carriers to explore new product offerings and hybrid designs.
As a financial institution, FNB provides personal, private, business and commercial banking services to millions of customers across South Africa and Africa.
