Polaris Launches Life Claims in the Cloud at the ACORD LOMA Forum 2014

Polaris Financial Technology Ltd, a leader in products that enable unprecedented operational productivity for the global financial services industry, announced the launch of Life Claims in the Cloud at the recently held annual Association for Cooperative Operations Research and Development (ACORD) LOMA Forum in Orlando, Florida.

According to Matthew Josefowicz, Managing Director at Novarica, “Understanding the value of cloud options and considering how they can be deployed effectively to solve existing business problems should be part of every insurers’ strategic plans.”

Life Claims in the Cloud helps life, annuity and health carriers harness the power of cloud computing to run a claims solution for as low as $10,000/month without any lead time to deploy.

This innovative offering allows claims managers to focus on processing claims quickly and enhancing the customer’s engagement experience instead of spending long cycles on limitations of the claims process and IT provisioning.

Key benefits to insurance carriers include:

  • Better claims outcomes
  • Simplified claims operations
  • Elevated customer experience
  • Regulatory compliance
  • No up-front investment on technology
  • Easy integration with backup and recovery functions

Speaking at the launch, Pranav Pasricha, CEO, Polaris Insurance, said, “As carriers expand their in force policies for disability, critical illness and annuity products, they will experience an increased claim volume and an increased expectation from their customers about their interaction. That coupled with increased regulatory pressures will require carriers to invest in new solutions. Forward looking insurers will add a higher quality customer experience to their list of outcomes. Market leaders view quality customer experience as a means to demonstrate customer centricity and differentiate based on the strength of their brand promise. The challenge for carriers is to maintain profitability while remaining competitive and relevant to the needs of the market. With Life Claims in the Cloud, they can achieve their goal to elevate customer experience with easy and effective claims processing at a fraction of the cost and without having to worry about IT issues.”

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
