Catholic Order of Foresters Modernizes With WELIS Ascent Illustration System

New Platform Enables Agents to More Effectively Present Products to Consumers

Exton, PA (April 13th, 2021) – iPipeline®–a leading provider of no code / low code cloud-based software solutions for the life insurance and financial services industry–today announced that Catholic Order of Foresters has selected its WELIS® Ascent illustration system to modernize how their agents present diversified insurance products to consumers seeking protection.

The WELIS Ascent illustration system is a scalable platform, designed to help insurers sell and service customers in a multi-channel distribution environment. The award-winning software is constructed as a standard single life illustration system that can be transformed into a sophisticated multiple life / multiple plan system with a single button click. iPipeline acquired WELIS in September 2020 and is one of the largest providers of illustrations in the life insurance industry.

“Educating consumers about what they are buying and how it is likely to perform in the future is critical to selling life insurance products. Automating the task of providing detailed illustrations to consumers not only enables agents to more effectively sell but allows them to show the differences more effectively across a range of products. Agents need to ensure that they are clearly educating consumers about products shaping their financial futures. Our platform fulfills this important need,” said Larry Berran, CEO, iPipeline. “WELIS Ascent is a feature-rich illustration platform offering flexibility and a range of features to improve sales presentations. The ability to rapidly make changes to support ongoing presentations provides speed-to-market advantages and improves consumer satisfaction. We are confident the agents at Catholic Order of Foresters will see an immediate benefit by using this new platform to educate their customers during the education and selling process.”

“From the beginning, iPipeline’s WELIS team stood out from the competition as a group that would build a strong relationship with us and forge a joint effort for the implementation of the new illustration platform. This was critical for us as we wanted to be able to update interest rates and make rider changes on our own, as well as execute other modifications to the platform without a heavy dependence on the tech provider. We were seeking a level of self-service to address our daily needs on the fly and saw that with iPipeline’s WELIS system,” said Geno Turek, Vice President, Product Solutions, Catholic Order of Foresters. “Of equal importance was finding a highly scalable platform with a variety of presentation features to support our growth and make life easier for our agents. Ultimately, the ability to present our product portfolio more effectively is what led to the selection. Their platform allows our agents to efficiently select the best products to address specific financial needs.”

Case Study: Enhancing Analytics & Accelerating Underwriting

Case Study

“Partnering with iPipeline, and specifically the InsureSight product, has allowed us to gain valuable insight into our comparison of traditional vs. accelerated underwriting. We’ve been able to establish a consistent answer to the question of ‘what’s slowing things down?’, stop playing the blame game, and get a better grasp on just what exactly we’re getting from a particular vendor.”
– Carrier Customer, Director, Life Operations

The objective was to supplement the accelerated underwriting process, which already featured iGO® and Resonant®, with meaningful analytics to allow the organization to be proactive with decision making.

Pain Points

  • Lack of control on underwriters

  • Productivity metrics (internally, for agents, vendors, and requirement management)
  • No understanding of the impact of process influences on an application
  • Unable to clearly break down specific segments of cycle time
  • No easy way to benchmark at any level
  • No strategically defined best practices
  • Inability to be proactive

Solution

This carrier became an early adopter of InsureSight®, partnering with iPipeline to integrate this data toolset to enhance their reporting capabilities.

Results, Discoveries & Impressions

Upon implementation of InsureSight, the carrier has found several game-changing capabilities, including the ability instantly access the granular segments of cycle time, which allows them to pinpoint the exact point of change in each step. They have direct, on-demand, real-time insight into how career agents compare to one another, and to independent or affiliated agencies, allowing them to decide whether to continue developing certain channels. Vendor accountability has become much easier to track- if the carrier partners with a vendor, they can easily see if their expectations and outcomes are being met.

In a use case example, the carrier has discovered that applications they collected with premium have a 30% higher placement ratio, and also take 21 days less to issue the case.

Finally, the carrier has been impressed what they deem the ‘revolutionary ability’ to locate any piece of data, from the highest level overview to the lowest level of granularity, within a matter of seconds- with the ability to export the data equally as quickly and present it in Excel, a PowerPoint slide, or a PDF.

iGO Product Update – January 2021

Check out our new enhancements including improving the ability to assign a custom value to the applicant ID in ExamOne’s Paramed Solution, correcting the timeout issue between the iGo session and Munich RE AIS if a user is still active in the question screens, and creating an easier navigation to the Help page on our customer portal. There are also a number of fixes as described below.


Enhancements

  1. Allow for a custom value to be used for the applicantId for our Paramed Scheduling integration with ExamOne
    This enhancement allows carriers to choose a custom value to assign to the applicantID value in ExamOne’s paramed scheduling solution. Currently this value is set by iGO and is not configurable to a value based on the carriers requirements. This enhancement provides the carrier the capability to tie the identifier within the Paramed Scheduling solution to a value that is relevant to their operations. This enhancement is available to customers using our Paramed Scheduling integration with ExamOne.

  2. Session Timeout update for Munich RE AIS Integration
    This is enhancement improves timeout handling for implementations integrated with Munich RE AIS solution. With this enhancement iGO will determine if the user is still active in the Munich RE AIS question screens and if so it will keep the iGO session alive. Prior to this enhancement if the user was acting within the Munich RE AIS question screens for longer than the iGO session timeout the iGO case itself would timeout. This would cause the users to have to log back into iGO to complete the case. This enhancement now ensures the iGO session will not time out while the user is answering question within Munich RE AIS.

  3. Need Assistance Help Menu integration to the iPipeline Customer Portal
    This enhancement enables the Help Menu option to navigate the user to the Help page on iPipeline’s Customer Portal.


    Upon clicking the Help option the user will navigate to the Customer Portal Help page. By doing this the user will have access to material and content to help with them with any issues they may have encountered.

    On this page the user will have access to a substantial amount of information to help with any issue or question they may have. This page will provide Knowledge Base articles, FAQ, training materials and videos.

Fixes

  1. Text My Pin multi-factor authentication screen locks after two failed attempts in Client Collaboration
    This fix resolves an issue where the screen used to enter the pin sent to the consumer’s mobile phone locks upon entering the correct pin on the third try after two unsuccessful attempts. This fix allows to the user to try a third attempt to enter the proper pin before locking the user out. If the correct pin is entered on the third attempt the user will be allowed to proceed. If an incorrect pin is entered again on the third attempt the user will see the proper screen and message notifying the user they have exceeded the allowed login attempts. This issue only occurs for carriers using Text My Pin for authentication into Client Collaboration. Carriers using Text My Pin for access to eSignature were not impacted by the issue.

  2. Screen content cutoff in Client Collaboration when using custom CSS
    This update resolves an issue where the screen content in Client Collaboration did not fully load. This would only occur for carriers using the original client collaboration solution who have also utilized their own custom CSS. In this instance the custom CSS did not include an element used by iGO. With this fix iGO was updated to handle the use of the customers custom CSS to enable the content to fully display.

  3. Consumer accessing Client Collaboration for a case created through a BGA
    This fixes resolves an error encountered when a consumer accesses Client Collaboration to complete their portion of a case when the case was created by an agent who accessed iGO through a BGA. Prior to this fix when the consumer would click on the link in the email to access the case the consumer would see an error. With this fix the consumer can now successfully click on the link and navigate to the landing page to authenticate into their application for completion.

iPipeline’s WELIS Systems Wins 2020 XCelent Award for Depth of Customer Service for Ascent Illustration System

WELIS Excels in Customer Satisfaction Above All Other Illustration System Providers

WELIS is long considered to be an industry leader in Illustration systems for the U.S. life insurance industry. The acquisition of WELIS positions iPipeline as one of the largest providers of illustrations in North America.

The WELIS Ascent® Illustration System is designed to help insurers sell and service customers in a multi-channel distribution environment.

“Happy customers are what customer service is all about, and the WELIS team delivers services at a level not easily emulated by others within the Illustration System industry. Stephen Frederick and his team are a unique breed with an intense focus on excellence,” said Larry Berran, CEO, iPipeline. “Celent’s awards are highly coveted within the life insurance industry, and I am thrilled to see WELIS setting the bar for depth of customer service within our industry. Our focus will remain fixed on maintaining exceptional customer satisfaction.”

“Celent’s framework for evaluating vendors is called the ‘Celent ABCD Vendor View.’ Our standard representation of a vendor marketplace is designed to show our industry readers at a glance the relative positions of each vendor in four categories: Advanced Technology, Breadth of Functionality, Customer Base, and Depth of Customer Service,” said Karen Monks, Senior Analyst, Celent. “In the category of Depth of Customer Service, WELIS emerged as the clear winner based on customer evaluations.

Pekin Life Insurance Company Integrates iPipeline’s Resonant Automated Underwriting With iGO e-App for Instant Decisioning

Instant Decisioning for Life Insurance Accelerates Sales in COVID-19 Pandemic

Exton, PA (November 23, 2020) – iPipeline® – a leading provider of low code cloud-based software solutions for the life insurance and financial services industry – today announced Pekin Life Insurance Company has integrated Resonant® New Business and Underwriting into their new business platform to provide point-of-sale (POS) instant decisioning within iGO® e-App, the most widely used, wizard-based e-Application among carriers and agents in the US.

“POS instant decisioning is something that we have long been advocating at iPipeline. With the current COVID-19 pandemic and the obstacles being faced by both agents and their clients, POS automation can be of enormous benefit,” said Larry Berran, CEO, iPipeline. “In Pekin Life’s new workflow, the life insurance case is submitted through iGO e-App to Resonant and the necessary automated underwriting actions take place, based on predefined rules. This accelerated approach to instant decisioning for life insurance ultimately leads to better outcomes for both the insurer and the customer, particularly at a time when contactless selling has become the new norm.”

“iPipeline is transforming how we think about the new business workflow and how we help our agents sell life insurance products to their clients. Our next-gen straight-through processing platform has advanced to the point with Resonant where we are now able to provide the agent with an instant underwriting decision with no human interaction,” said Jocelyn Duncan at Pekin Life, VP of Life Administration. “In the future, our plans are to further enhance the platform functionality and increase straight-through processing speed by reducing human interaction on a wider array of products and including DocFast® e-Delivery to fully automate policy issuance. iPipeline has continued to innovate with us on many fronts this year. The results of this partnership are helping us to maintain and build upon our market momentum during the COVID-19 pandemic and offer the valuable protections so many families need at this time.”
