Dublin, Ireland, February 23, 2009 – FINEOS Corporation, a global provider of innovative enterprise software solutions for insurance, bancassurance, and government, today announced that it has been selected as the claims management solution for life and income protection (disability) claims at SalusAnsvar, one of Sweden�s leading life assurance companies. FINEOS Claims will replace the existing solution and the project will commence immediately.
SalusAnsvar Group Life Company is one of the leading group life assurance companies in Sweden with 150,000 customers in total. With the assistance of consulting firm, �kelow InfoSecurity, SalusAnsvar looked at a number of claims solutions available on the market before opting for FINEOS Claims. The company plans to use the solution to support and manage the complete claims life-cycle from first notification through to final settlement and resolution.
According to Ulf Nilsson, Managing Director of SalusAnsvar Group Life Company, �FINEOS offered the best fit for both our business and technology requirements. We were impressed with the preconfigured business content for life and income protection claim handling which aligns with industry best practice in this area. In addition, the configuration capabilities of FINEOS Claims will allow our IT and business staff to amend processes within their own areas of activity. This approach will enable us to quickly adapt to changes in the business without reliance on external parties or specialist technical knowledge. This will help us deliver even better service to our customers�.
