At the ACORD LOMA Insurance Systems Forum, Fis Software, a provider of enterprise level end-to-end policy administration systems for life, annuity, pension and health products, today announced the launch and immediate availability of its ALIS Mobile Application (AMA), a fully integrated mobile application for FIS's ALIS Policy Administration System.
With AMA, ALIS functionality is extended to provide agents, financial advisers, and policyholders with real-time iPhone, Android, and Blackberry access to application status, account balances, commission payments, and transaction processing.
FIS's AMA offers maximum flexibility with the ability to configure custom handheld applications for each insurer's specific needs and to access any data element available through ALIS. AMA is compatible with all versions of ALIS.
"Our new mobile application for ALIS fits well within our product strategy in that we are able to offer capabilities to our insurer clients wherever, whenever, and however they need access to ALIS functionality and data," said Ron Karam, President FIS North America. "And, given that the definition of insurance company users now includes everyone from the home office to distribution channels to the policyholder themselves, our ability to offer a wide-range of device options combined with ALIS's rich functionality enables our clients to gain and maintain a competitive advantage."
Insurer benefits that can be achieved with FIS's AMA include:
Improved efficiencies in back office operations through a reduced need to manually provide key information to agents, financial advisers, and policyholders;
Reduced response time to all users as well as reduced phone calls and email exchanges required to complete transactions or satisfy information requests; and
Offering anywhere, anytime capabilities to today's tech-savvy users with heightened expectations of immediate access through a variety of technology and devices.
