StoneRiver Expands Strategic Relationship with PilotFish Technology
Value-Added Reseller Agreement Builds on Prior Success
OAKLAND, Calif., May 1, 2013 — /PRNewswire/ StoneRiver, Inc., the trusted insurance technology partner with solutions across multiple business lines, today announced that StoneRiver has signed a Value-Added Reseller Agreement authorizing StoneRiver to distribute PilotFish software and provide associated integration services.
StoneRiver had previously entered into an agreement with PilotFish whereby StoneRiver was licensed to bundle the PilotFish software with its industry leading Value-Added Reseller solution for new business and automated underwriting. The combination of the two solutions has been an outstanding success, enabling LifeSuite to effectively and efficiently support thirteen different ACORD standard transactions.
Now, with the addition of the PilotFish Validation Server, LifeSuite can enable the automated validation and certification of trading partners’ messages to standardize initial and ongoing information exchange. These products from PilotFish help StoneRiver implement LifeSuite significantly faster and more cost effectively, resulting in an even higher return on investment for clients.
“Our alliance with PilotFish is a win-win for StoneRiver and our customers”, said Jim Woodward, SVP of Life Carrier Solutions at StoneRiver. “It allows us to create new interfaces between systems much more quickly and efficiently, allowing us to pass those cost savings on to our customers while freeing-up our resources to support an ever-increasing number of clients.”
Under the new Value-Added Reseller Agreement, StoneRiver is now authorized to distribute and support the PilotFish products for enterprise-wide integration requirements, regardless of whether or not LifeSuite is a component of the solution.
“As StoneRiver clients experience better, faster and easier integration using the PilotFish products, it is only natural that they will want to extend their usage across the enterprise”, said Neil Schappert, President, PilotFish Technology. “StoneRiver is now in a position to support them in that endeavor.”
