May 10, 2010 – New York, NY – P&C Insurance Systems, Inc. (“PCIS”) today announced the completion of its integration with Appulate’s “Uplink” data bridge technology.
The two companies engaged each other at the beginning of 2010 to demonstrate how an insurance company using PCIS’ CompVision policy application could leverage Appulate’s “Uplink” data bridge to seamlessly import data sent by retail agents. “It’s all about increasing efficiency between a carrier and their agents which ultimately results in faster and better service to the insured.,” said Georgette Loizou, Executive Vice President, PCIS.
The initial “proof of concept” consisted of PCIS using Uplink to upload workers’ compensation policy data from various retail agency management systems. Uplink provided each of these outputs as standard ACORD XML data and PCIS created a tool to capture and accept this data. The result allows PCIS customers to streamline their business processes and reduce data entry for all stakeholders involved.
“PCIS is a very innovative company that clearly wants to bring more value to their customers”, said Dimitri Nikouline, Appulate’s Chief Technology Officer.
Founded in 2005, Appulate provides a best of breed bridging technology that allows retail agents to send ACORD, supplemental, loss and other data to carriers, wholesale brokerages, MGA and TPA receivers. Using the ACORD XML standards, Appulate offers an unprecedented level of connectivity to streamline business processes of the insurance industry.
