Next-generation platform enables wholesaler to bring innovative specialty insurance solutions to brokers and agents at speed and scale
Morristown, NJ – November 4, 2019 - Majesco (NASDAQ: MJCO), a global leader of cloud insurance software solutions for insurance business transformation, today announced that Burns & Wilcox, North America’s leading insurance wholesale broker and underwriting manager, selected Majesco Digital1st® Insurance platform as the foundation of their latest digital growth strategy.
Burns & Wilcox, the flagship organization of H.W. Kaufman Group, captures more than $1.5 billion in premium annually and is recognized for its expertise in commercial and professional liability, property, environmental, marine and personal insurance. For 50 years, the privately held wholesaler has served retail brokers and agents of all sizes—offering wide ranging and comprehensive specialty insurance solutions and trusted counsel on complex risks.
“When evaluating new technology solutions to further support our overall growth strategy and meet the needs of our clients, we determined the need for a platform that provided cloud-based, real-time, insurance specific capabilities,” commented Daniel J. Kaufman, Chief Operating Officer, Burns & Wilcox and Executive Vice President, H.W. Kaufman Group. “By partnering with Majesco Digital1st® Insurance, Burns & Wilcox can provide quick access to innovative specialty insurance products on a digital platform that meets the changing risk needs of consumers.”
The initial phase will include the development of three insurance offerings with plans to extend the platform across the enterprise with additional product offerings.
Majesco Digital1st Insurance™ is a ground-breaking cloud-native, micro-services and API-based platform-as-a-service that brings the most cutting-edge business and consumer technology trends to insurance. Majesco Digital1st® Insurance is distinctly different from the core platform solutions for P&C and L&A and Group, though each of new solutions can be used and integrated with Majesco’s core systems, and with other core software to accelerate their value.
“We are honored and thrilled on the selection of Majesco Digital1st® Insurance by Burns & Wilcox as their platform for their future,” stated Manish Shah, President and Chief Product Officer for Majesco. “Majesco Digital1st® Insurance is our answer to the paradigm shift happening in the insurance industry. We’ve built a platform designed to innovate and scale the business, create unique client experiences, capture new and underserved market opportunities, leverage expanding ecosystems and deliver value in record time. We are thrilled to partner with Burns & Wilcox to demonstrate the possibilities and value of this next generation platform and in doing so, shape the future of their business and the industry.”
