Five Insurers License CSC’s PerformancePlus Distribution Management System

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 1, 2002 — Computer Sciences Corporation today announced that five insurers have signed new license agreements for its distribution management system, PerformancePlus. The AEGON Group companies, American United Life Insurance Company, The Manufacturers Life Insurance Company (Manulife USA), Ohio National Financial Services and a fifth firm ranked among the top 10 life insurers in the U.S. have selected CSC’s product.

Within the past year, two other major insurers, Jackson National Life Insurance Company and The Phoenix Companies, Inc., also chose PerformancePlus. Business drivers for these decisions include the need for greater compensation flexibility and better service and responsiveness to agents, broker/dealers and other distribution channels.

“Before committing to PerformancePlus, we were able to fully understand the system’s capabilities and see how it could meet our company’s unique objectives better than the competition,” said Al Bowen, senior vice president of Information Systems at Ohio National. “CSC provided a detailed, customized road map to implement the software, attain a quick return on our investment and mitigate the risk of cost overruns.”

“CSC’s systems currently administer diverse, complex compensation plans for more than 30 insurers whose annual total compensation payout exceeds $7 billion,” said Michael Risley, president of the Life and Health division of CSC’s Financial Services Group. “By blending the latest technology with proven software design in PerformancePlus, we are able to ensure both flexibility and performance.”
