With innovative technology and services, E.piphany and IBM are delivering a solution to help insurance customers solve crucial business issues such as web- enabling and integrating distribution channels, improving access to information for agents, brokers and customers, and improving overall customer service.
"We are excited about the E.piphany and IBM solution because it provides an architecture that allows for flexible integration with our existing enterprise infrastructure," said Cyndie Beckwith, vice president, customer experience, CSAA. "Additionally, the features and functionality of the solution will help us to deliver an exceptional level of service, as our more than 4 million members deserve."
With a shared vision of open standards, component strategy and J2EE architecture, E.piphany and IBM are well aligned to address customer needs in an On Demand world, combing IBM's strength in standards-based middleware, business consulting and industry expertise with E.piphany's strength of delivering flexible, high- value CRM applications. E.piphany's modern service-oriented architecture provides an excellent complement to the IITS solution which is comprised of many scalable components and leverages IBM's software and hardware infrastructure.
