Pega helps insurers to keep pace with rapidly changing market conditions, maximize each customer interaction, improve front and back-office integration and increase sales pipeline generation.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – May 5, 2014Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company powering the digital enterprise with Better Business Software®, today announced significant enhancements to the company’s Distribution Management for Insurance solution. As distribution channels continue to evolve across Web, mobile and social media, insurance carriers need an agile, multi-channel solution that will help them optimize omni-channel capabilities to improve agent effectiveness, improve front and back-office integration to automate fulfillment at the point of interaction, and increase sales pipeline generation. The Distribution Management for Insurance solution enables agents to adapt to rapidly changing market conditions and customer needs and supports their ability to grow profitable books of business.  

The Distribution Management for Insurance solution leverages Pega’s Sales Force Automation (SFA) and Pega’s Next-Best-Action Marketing solutions to provide insurance agents with dynamic guidance in recommending the optimal decision at each stage of the sales interaction. Using next-best-action capabilities provides agents with the ability to combat price competition with dynamic sales strategies which they can personalize and adapt for each opportunity.

This flexible and strategic platform is designed to accelerate channel effectiveness and provides the following benefits:

  • Multi-channel solution that can be extended seamlessly to support agent and policyholder needs;
  • Agile, 100 percent portable platform that is available on the cloud, on-premise and in hybrid deployments; and
  • Integrates seamlessly with existing legacy infrastructure and enhances the functionality of supporting solutions including traditional SFA solutions.

The Distribution Management for Insurance solution provides the tools that insurance sales organizations require to engage customers and prospects on their terms to maximize the customer’s experience during each interaction. With Pega, insurers can leverage high-definition insight through predictive and adaptive analytics and add customer intelligence and relevance as needed. Insurance companies can gain enterprise visibility into production, leverage real-time data and institutionalize best practices across the sales force to increase channel production. Agents can perform their work on any device, including mobile phones, tablets and PCs. This increases the sales team’s productivity by providing access to critical SFA capabilities through a user experience that is dynamically tailored to each device and that is available online or offline.

Pega will demonstrate the solution’s capabilities at Booth #515 at the annual ACORD LOMA Conference being held in Orlando, Fla., on May 4-6, 2014.
