RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Sapiens International Corporation (NASDAQ: SPNS) (TASE: SPNS), a leading global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, announced today that Berkshire Hathaway GUARD Insurance Companies (GUARD), a national Property & Casualty insurer, has achieved important benefits thanks to Sapiens Decision‘s business logic management tools. GUARD started by moving selection and pricing guidelines for perils in their Business Owner Policy lines to achieve greater real-time service, consistency and change management control.
“I am excited to share that shortly after going live we are seeing clear benefits. Sapiens Decision accelerates the submission-to-quote time by enabling rapid decisioning on policy characteristics,” said Carl Witkowski, Chief Operating Officer at GUARD Insurance Companies. “The Sapiens solution is helping GUARD streamline the quoting process and increase agent satisfaction, with lower IT dependencies and improved business agility and control. With our initial success and time to market, we are in the process of rolling out Sapiens Decision to more business areas and look forward to continuing to partner with Sapiens as we move forward in our transformation.”
“It’s been a great pleasure working with GUARD as they expand implementation of Sapiens Decision as part of their mission to be the preferred company to which their agents turn,” said Jamie Yoder, Sapiens North America President & General Manager. “With our no-code decision automation platform, delivered on the cloud with easy integration and robust performance, our clients like GUARD gain leverage quickly by separating their business logic from core systems, technical rules engines or manual processes. Within weeks, clients automate mission-critical decision-making like GUARD has done with their BOP perils calculation, accelerating to same-day rules change management, with dramatically reduced IT spend and increased business accuracy.”
