Westlake Village, CA, United States, 2012/11/16 - SOFTPRO North America and CEB TowerGroup will host a joint insurance webinar entitled,“ESignatures: New Advances in Insurance Onboarding”, on Tuesday, December 4 - SOFTPRO.de. NASDAQ & LSE: KFX
Mr. Steffen Schade, Director of Distribution Technology for the AIA Group, will join the webinar to discuss and demo AIA’s mobile and secure interactive Point of Sale (iPOS) system for iPads.
AIA Singapore is the first insurer globally to introduce a standalone point-of-sales system on iPad, which enables comprehensive financial advisory process with secured electronic submission of life insurance policies. By doing so, the system increases the efficiency of the insurance-purchasing process and customers can now obtain insurance coverage as fast as within one day. Approximately 3,500 AIA Financial Services Consultants (FSCs) in Singapore will now be able to focus more time on providing quality financial advice to customers and spend less time on administrative matters which are now automated. The iPoS system on an iPad follows the successful launch of AIA Singapore’s fully mobile iPad Sales Quotation System (SQS) in January 2012 which saw more than 70% of AIA’s agency force adopt the SQS.
Sam Stuckal, CEB TowerGroup Research Director will discuss how companies can leverage new technologies to enhance 'speed to issue'. Sam Stuckal has more than 20 years of insurance industry experience in operations, financial management, procurement, and sourcing. His research is focused on how technology supports the distribution and servicing of life and annuity products – including actuarial systems, policy administration systems, illustration systems, and customer relationship management automation.
Rod Vesling, President and General Manager for SOFTPRO North America, will outline how organizations can implement an electronic signature software platform that easily integrates with existing applications. “AIA is truly an innovator in developing and deploying mobile applications, including esigning, on a large scale,” explains Mr. Vesling,“For attendees, there is tremendous value in learning first-hand how a leading organization has leveraged technology to increase the efficiency of the insurance onboarding process as well as seeing a live demonstration of their implementation.”
