Hyland Software Inc., developer of the OnBase enterprise content management (ECM) software suite, announced that Director of Financial Services Jason King will now also oversee Hyland's Insurance solutions division.
In his new role, King will manage Hyland's sales initiatives for the company's insurance business division. He will continue to manage sales initiatives for commercial banks, credit unions and lending institutions.
"For more than 11 years, Jason has thrived as an invaluable asset to our organization by providing innovative and influential insight into the industry as well as our business processes," said Brenda Kirk, Vice President of U.S. Sales at Hyland Software. "For that reason coupled with his breadth of expertise in the financial services industry, we feel that the impact of Jason's direction of the insurance division will coincide with the company's vision of top-tier service and performance moving forward."
King has held several positions during his career with Hyland Software, including industry manager of lending solutions and enterprise sales account manager for Financial Services. He is a Certified Document Imaging Architech (CDIA+) and AIIM Enterprise Content Management Practitioner (ECMp). Furthermore, King is an active member of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) and the Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO).
"While the U.S. is still the world's largest insurance market with insurance gross premiums averaging more than one-third of the world's total, challenges from economic recession are inevitable," said King. "To prepare for those challenges, insurers need to look towards technology developments that provide operational costs savings. ECM technology not only improves operations, but it significantly reduces overhead costs associated with office space. With electronic data available across an entire enterprise, employees are no longer required to work at central locations, eliminating the insurance company's need for physical expansion. With data stored electronically, physical storage facilities are no longer required, thus further eliminating costs associated with storage space."
