I'm very pleased to announce the general availability and completion of version 10 of EIS Suite™. Version 10 is the culmination of 12 months of effort from EIS Group employees from all corners of the globe. It demonstrates our continuing commitment to help insurance carriers innovate and operate like a tech company: fast, simple, and agile.
As insurers look to form sustainable and scalable ecosystems, they’ll need to expose their products, rules, and rates to other systems of engagement. But are incumbent systems up to the challenge?
Insurtech’s promise was that it would support innovation through contemporary customer experiences and emerging business models. The truth is that insurtechs are just one part of diverse insurance ecosystems and require something more than legacy core systems to achieve their potential. They need “coretech.” And in 2020, they can get it.
The whole idea would have been ludicrous even three years ago. Now, seemingly out of nowhere, new and credible insurance brands are popping up with slick user experiences, instantaneous quotes, five-minute buy cycles, and DIY service options—all available on your phone—24 x 7 x 365. And what makes all this possible? Rapidly maturing cloud-native architecture, digitization, open APIs, and the mainstreaming of the greenfield initiative as a favored strategy are enablers.
