StoneRiver Deploys PilotFish Technology to Strengthen LifeSuite Capabilities
The Combination of Stone River’s LifeSuite and the PilotFish Technology’s XCS eiPlatform Offers Insurance Industry Clients the Painless Implementation of a Seamlessly Integrated New Business Process
(Oakland, CA) December 10, 2010 – StoneRiver and PilotFish Technology announce the first joint deployment of LifeSuite and the XCS eiPlatform. StoneRiver’s LifeSuite is a leading web-based solution for new business and automated underwriting, while the XCS eiPlatform is a complementary integration framework used to execute and manage interfaces between heterogeneous systems. The combination of these two products offers insurance industry clients the painless implementation of a seamlessly integrated new business process. The LifeSuite user interface now supports enhanced customization and increased speed-to-market.
This installation marks the realization of benefits envisioned by the recent partnership between the two organizations. Under this agreement, StoneRiver will deploy the XCS eiPlatform alongside the LifeSuite software. StoneRiver will also leverage the XCS eiConsole, an integrated development environment, to design, develop, build, and test interfaces. These products provide StoneRiver unprecedented agility in the execution of LifeSuite implementations. In particular, the XCS Data Mapper’s drag-and-drop XSLT mapping capability allows StoneRiver to quickly adapt to evolving client requirements and to a plethora of partner data formats. The benefits of the alliance enable StoneRiver to further heighten client satisfaction by building interfaces more efficiently and effectively, leaving more time and resources to concentrate on core insurance application development. With this advantage, LifeSuite further sets itself apart from the competition – delivering faster deployment, complete automation, and immediate return-on-investment.
“The decision was simple,” states Dennis Pfiffner, Vice President of Product Services at StoneRiver, “We wanted to deploy powerful and practical solutions for the connectivity, transformation, and transmission of data to our clients’ partners – using ACORD and other data feeds. The results of our initial integration efforts have been extremely successful and currently in use with clients.”
Neil Schappert, president of PilotFish adds, “We are excited to see this relationship bear fruit. StoneRiver is a leader in providing strategic software solutions to the industry – and PilotFish is the premier provider of integration solutions tuned to the needs of this market. It is a natural partnership that we expect will continue to allow StoneRiver to deliver rapidly and effectively on behalf of their clients.”
