Morristown, NJ – November 1, 2018 - Majesco (NYSE American: MJCO), a global provider of core insurance platform software and consulting services for insurance business transformation, today announced that Gartner has positioned Majesco as a Leader in the October 2018 Magic Quadrant for P&C Core Platforms, North America report.  Majesco is recognized as a Leader for its completeness of vision and ability to execute. The report evaluated 15 solutions, with only 3 being recognized as a Leader. “North American market for P&C core systems continues to consolidate as buyers raise expectations and expand the scope of their modernization efforts to include broad platforms,” wrote Jeff Haner, principal research analyst, Insurance, Gartner and author of the report.   “Ecosystems forming around these core platforms are receiving greater attention from insurance CIOs.” The report notes that core platforms include elements such as:
  • Core systems, including core modules for:
    • Policy management, which provides end-to-end policy management and issuance — including quoting, rating, underwriting, policy generation and statistical reporting
    • Billing management, which supports the entire P&C insurance billing process flow and collections cycle, including functionality such as electronic bill presentment and payment (EBPP)
    • Claims management, which supports every phase of the claims process for P&C insurers, from first notice of loss (FNOL) through settlement and reporting
  • Data repository, which uses a reference data model to centralize data from both core systems that are a part of the platform and other external systems
  • Reporting and analytics, which provide prebuilt dashboards and reports with industry-specific key performance indicators and support for ad hoc analysis
  • Portals and apps, which provide customers, agents and suppliers with a variety of functions from any device, such as sales and self-service, lead management, collaboration, and billing
  • Integration accelerators, which extend the functionality of the core platform by tapping an ecosystem of third parties offering additional functional capabilities and data sources
