HOLON, Israel, April, 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 the Altshuler-Shaham Group, an Israeli firm in the field of asset management, has selected the Sapiens Life & Pension (Sapiens L&P) solution to support the company's Israel based Greenfield life insurance operation.
"It was important for us to work with a technology partner who understood our life insurance processing needs, and who also understood the nuances and challenges of the Israeli market," said Yair Lowenstein, CEO, Altshuler-Shaham Insurance & Investment Funds. "Sapiens is well known for its insurance expertise, the quality of its technology solutions, and its impressive track record of successful delivery of these types of projects. We have the utmost confidence in our decision and in Sapiens' ability to meet our aggressive timeline."
Roni Al-Dor, Sapiens President and CEO, commented: "The selection of Sapiens by Altshuler-Shaham is an important win for us and gives us stronger presence in the Israeli insurance market. We are experiencing a good deal of momentum in the L&P sector and see this as a significant opportunity for Sapiens. Altshuler-Shaham's vote of confidence in Sapiens' product and people is appreciated and we look forward to playing a key role in helping the investment firm continue its rapid growth trajectory."
Altshuler-Shaham's decision to implement Sapiens L&P solution is attributed to Sapiens' deep knowledge and experience in the Israeli insurance market, its proven solution, two decades of experience in the market, and a wealth of experience in managing long term investment products.
With the insurance regulator encouraging newcomers to establish presence to support the life insurance market opportunity, Altshuler-Shaham recognized the opportunity, opting to launch a Greenfield life insurance operation.
Altshuler-Shaham's anticipated benefits with the Sapiens L&P administration system include:
- Fast time to market with a production environment planned for late 2014;
- End-to-end core life insurance processing from initial sale to ongoing management; and
- Full compliance with the regulations.
