The new version includes cutting-edge capabilities and innovative features to accelerate insurers’ ability to modernize, optimize and create a new future of insurance
Morristown, NJ December 10, 2019 – Majesco (NASDAQ: MJCO), a global leader of cloud insurance software solutions for insurance business transformation, today announced the general availability of version 11 for the Majesco Distribution Management platform. This follows the announcement for V11 of P&C Core Suite and L&A and Group Core Suite on October 28, 2019.
“Insurers across P&C and L&A and Group are focused on growth strategies through traditional agent and broker channels as well as new channels such as marketplaces, white-labelling partnerships, banks, and more but are challenged in effectively engaging, managing and optimizing these channels due to legacy compensation systems designed for a different era of distribution,” stated Eric Bustos, Vice President of Distribution Management Practice at Majesco. “With the proliferation of new channels and the consolidation of agent and broker channels, insurers must meet the unique needs of these diverse channels with more innovative, forward-looking channel management, compensation and on-boarding capabilities. Majesco Distribution Management provides a new platform that brings digital, distribution and data together for a new era of insurance to help insurers optimize and grow their business.”
Major changes in customer behaviors and expectations, particularly among the next generations of insurance buyers, Millennials and Gen Z, require insurers to offer a multi-channel ecosystem of options including agents, brokers, marketplaces, embedding insurance in other businesses at the point of sale, integrating with comparison sites and direct distribution. The diversity of these channels, require new, innovative digital, distribution and data capabilities to create a sustainable competitive advantage and drive growth.
“Today’s insurers must rethink their distribution management organization and solutions to manage the variety and uniqueness of a growing diversity of channels to not only modernize their operation but optimize it to support their growth strategies,” stated Mike Fitzgerald, Senior Analyst at Celent. “Insurers need to consider not only the core distribution capabilities, but also the digital and data needs to fully optimize these channels to drive ease of doing business them.”
