Hyland Software Inc., developer of the OnBase enterprise content management (ECM) software suite, today announced it has joined Microsoft's Insurance Value Chain (IVC) program.
As an IVC member, Hyland will take part in Microsoft's initiative to provide insurers with a comprehensive set of insurance-specific applications and services that seamlessly integrate with each other and with existing applications.
Hyland is part of a select group of IVC software vendors that provide high-value solutions for Microsoft insurance customers. By integrating OnBase with various applications and products from other top vendors, Microsoft seeks to provide a comprehensive, end-to-end solution for insurance companies. These top vendors provide business-processing software, ranging from point-of- sale-and-service to re-insurance. Additionally, IVC partners will be part of a framework for integrating their applications based on Web Services and industry standards to provide insurers with a complete solution.
"At Hyland, we are committed to providing tight integration with Microsoft products," said Tim Tallaksen, director of insurance solutions, Hyland Software. "This partnership assures insurance companies that they can maximize all of their investments in productivity software. Insurers can be confident that the OnBase ECM solution will optimize capabilities of their existing business solutions in underwriting, claims, customer service and other business areas."
Separately, Hyland Software, developer of the OnBase enterprise content management (ECM) software suite, announced a new partnership with Delphi Technology (DTI), an established provider of technology solutions to the risk management and P&C insurance markets.
The partnership will provide insurance clients with tighter integration between DTI's OASIS insurance software solution and Hyland Software's OnBase ECM software suite.
DTI's OASIS insurance software solution is used by insurers, third-party administrators and self-insured employers specializing in P&C areas such as medical malpractice, workers' compensation, general liability, automobile and property lines. The OASIS suite of products includes incident reporting, central information system, policy, claims, reinsurance and financial management applications.
"As leaders in the insurance software industry, our customers rely on us to provide robust technology solutions that work across the enterprise," said Sam Fang, President of Delphi Technology, Inc. "Our proven OASIS solutions for property and casualty insurance will be enhanced with the integration of Hyland's OnBase enterprise content management system. Insurance companies will reap numerous benefits from using an end-to-end insurance processing suite that bridges gaps in disparate information systems and improves workflow between multiple locations."
Hyland's OnBase ECM solution enables insurance companies to manage and distribute disparate information (documents and related data) regardless of format within a single solution. By leveraging OnBase, insurers can reduce the time and cost of performing important business functions and achieve regulatory compliance through the management, control and sharing of digital content with employees, business units, remote offices, insurance agencies and customers.
"Delphi Technology and Hyland Software are leading software providers in the insurance industry," said Tim Tallaksen, director of insurance solutions for Hyland Software. "Our mutual customers will benefit from the partnership which allows OASIS software and OnBase to seamlessly integrate an insurance organization's content across the enterprise. This is one more example of both DTI and Hyland's dedication to provide solutions that deliver operational efficiency and customer service."
