John Hancock Integrates With iPipeline’s iGO Application Solution to Streamline Sales and Improve Customer Experience

Enhanced Platform to Increase Sales Efficiency and Offer Access to Instant Underwriting Decisions

Exton, PA (July 21, 2021) – iPipeline®, a leading provider of no code / low code content-based digital solutions for the life insurance and financial services industry, today announced John Hancock has implemented a fully digital version of iGO® e-App, including Client Collaboration with AlphaTrust® e-Signature, to accelerate the life insurance application process. This new, modern approach can dramatically reduce the life insurance sales cycle and offers a less intrusive way to collect medical history data with required signatures. Some clients may even receive an “instant” underwriting decision via John Hancock ExpressTrack®, the company’s accelerated underwriting process.1

“Client collaboration has long been a primary focus for iPipeline as we see the speed-to-coverage advantages being top of mind for most customers. Whatever can be done to make application completion and the collection of personal/medical data easier can drastically improve the overall customer experience,” said Larry Berran, CEO, iPipeline. “The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted progressively minded carriers and their agents to seek efficient ways of doing business in a contactless selling environment. John Hancock’s decision to integrate with our platform demonstrates their commitment to accelerating the application and underwriting process at a time when traditional processing methods can lead to extensive delays.”

“At John Hancock, we are on a journey to reinvent the life insurance purchase process and are working in lock-step with like-minded innovative technology companies to make it happen. This collaboration with iPipeline is the latest effort to provide our distribution partners with next-generation sales tools to streamline the completion of applications,” said Linda Levyne, Senior Vice President/Head of Sales, John Hancock Insurance. “This is the level of service our partners and customers demand, and we are excited to provide them with an easy and convenient submission method at a time when so many are seeking protection.”

If you’re an existing iPipeline customer, turn on John Hancock’s “Term e-Application” and “Permanent e-Application” in iService to start taking advantage today.

  1. Consumers, 18-60, submitting an application via iPipeline’s iGO e-App, and applying for single-life coverage up to $3 million are eligible for the ExpressTrack process, with an opportunity for certain applicants to obtain an “instant” underwriting decision. Policy issuance is not guaranteed as any life insurance purchase is subject to completion of an application, including health questions, and underwriting approval. John Hancock will obtain additional information, including but not limited to medical records, to evaluate your application for insurance; and after your policy is issued, to identify any misrepresentation in the application. The ExpressTrack process is not available in New York.

Robots Take Over Illustrations- Humans in Awe!

Picture This…

Your broker is flipping through multiple illustrations with their client- you emailed them a dozen scenarios to keep them prepared. Right in the middle of their discussion, out of the blue, the client reveals they have high blood pressure. They also think the premiums are too high, the face amount is wrong, and the payment lengths need shortening. Unfortunately, in that instant, your broker has no access to carrier software or WiFi.

The broker stays cool, breaking out their smartphone, and within 30 seconds they’ve got side-by-side comparisons of the new numbers for their client. With the tap of a button, the compliant illustration pops up on their screen. They flip their phone on its side, and the client e-Signs with their finger. An automated email copy is sent to them instantly for their records. Another tap on “Apply”, and the illustration data pre-populates to the application.

Boom. Your broker just made a sale. They didn’t panic. They have iSolve®.

With iSolve, they can:

  • Instantly respond with 40 million pre-run quotes
  • Eliminate complicated carrier illustration software
  • Reduce wait times to zero for illustration requests
  • Enable easy, side-by-side carrier comparisons
  • Have access for both Brokers and back office staff
  • Have a mobile friendly, WiFi independent experience
  • Provide multi carrier compliant illustrations on-demand
  • Allow clients to e-Sign illustrations in seconds
  • Pre-populate illustrations in iGO® e-App

Crystal Balls: Are They Ever Right?

Few people buy without some insight into the associated price, and agents know that selling insurance is no exception. Clients often demand to be shown various premiums and coverage options before signing an insurance application.
The challenge is most agents rarely know a client’s true premium tolerance or their medical background at that early stage of the selling process. Client unknowns can create significant variance in the cost of coverage and are typically not discovered until the underwriting stage is complete, thus requiring additional re-proposals.

Further complicating the selling process is the fact that illustrations are simply projections into financial futures, and the outcomes are rarely perfect. Agents attempt to show their clients this imperfect ‘crystal ball’ through varying illustrative outcomes.

Like Hitting a Wiffleball in the Wind

Client curveballs can be tricky. In order to handle all the unexpected ‘what if?’ scenarios, producers pre-run countless illustrations in advance of a client meeting hoping to avoid potential objections that could prevent a sale. This exhaustive quoting process is a producer’s only hope to get a hit with their potential client.

Same Dog, Same Tricks

Unlike the above situation, in the independent brokerage channel, brokers have no access to carrier illustration software. Their reliance is on their distributor’s back office staff to run illustration scenarios for them, providing the PDF outputs by email. This creates a back-and-forth ritual that takes hours, if not days, leaving everyone frustrated. So, can the industry be taught a new trick?

Tom Sawyer, the Producer, Passes the Paint Brush

Each carrier within the brokerage channel has their own custom illustration software, and these platforms are super complex and confusing. It’s not practical to try and teach individual brokers how to run their own illustrations on them.

Because of this, quoting aggregation tools like Winflex, Lifetrends, and Ensight were developed, with the intention of making quoting easier. But they were designed only for back office staff, and producers didn’t have access to them. The result? Agents are receiving daily emails from their distributors, requiring them to wade through pages upon pages of PDF attachments. Even worse, a third of these agents re-contact their distributors to request further tweaks to the proposals.

It’s an inefficient process: someone needs to put a fresh coat of paint on this fence for the producers.

iSolve: The Game Changer

iSolve does what no other software can: creates a digital, end-to-end experience that enables agents to quote and apply faster by avoiding the complications associated with traditional illustrations. iSolve is quite simply the fastest illustration tool they’ll ever use. Why? Because robots have been taught how to run illustrations, which avoids clumsy PDFs and provides instant responses with 40 million pre-run illustrations. Watch the webcast today or schedule a demo to learn more!

Robots Take Over Illustrations- Humans In Awe!

Quote | Illustrate | e-Sign | Apply

Presenter: Bill Atlee, Founder & Chief Innovation Officer, iPipeline

Imagine if robots could handle 80% of the countless illustrations requests that come from brokers daily. Well, it’s not some cyber fantasy. iPipeline’s iSolve® robots pre-run 40 million illustrations a month to help you avoid illustration nightmares. Brokers can manipulate these solves without ever learning carrier software, have an illustration seamlessly e-Signed, or sweep it into iGO® e-App for completion. 

Let’s face it: illustrations as they exist today only output PDFs. That output stinks. It handcuffs your brokers. Why? If the illustration numbers don’t jive with their client, they call you back for more re-proposals. Even if the numbers are solid, they can’t execute the sale without printing and wet signing an illustration (Does anyone even own printers anymore?).

Isn’t it time that illustrations experience an innovative breakthrough? Join Bill Atlee, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer, as he walks you through our newly enhanced version of iSolve and how to:

  • Instantly retrieve multi-carrier comparisons (GUL, CAUL, IUL)
  • Reduce running illustrations by 80%
  • Rarely access Winflex, Ensight, LifeTrends or carrier software
  • Shift 71% of illustration quoting to your brokers
  • Collapse 18.9 days off of wet signing an illustration
  • Pre-populate iGO e-App, e-Sign and submit

Enriching Your e-App Experience

With 50+ successful Carrier implementations, and hundreds of thousands of agents in North America utilizing the product, it’s safe to say that iGO® has become an important part of workflows across the nation. The breadth of this network is certainly apparent in the roughly $32 billion in e-Application ops dollars saved to date!

As the product owner of iGO, it’s my job to continually seek out enhancements that will enrich the e-App experience. The benefits that customers are seeing as a result of using iGO reach well beyond an improvement on NiGO applications, reduced cycle times, and increased placement ratio.

Take Guardian Life for example- after rolling out iGO for both their Life and Disability product lines, they proactively became the first adopter of Client Collaboration, enabling their agents and consumers to work together to complete applications.

Another great point of reference is Pekin and Mutual of Omaha, who are both utilizing LexisNexis Instant ID to verify the identity of consumers in real-time, thus reducing risk and flagging fraudulent and suspect behavior.

These are just a few highlights- I invite you to explore the full range of features available to augment the iGO experience below. Please also feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn to keep in tune with iGO enhancements in the future!

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.”

WoodmenLife Launches Unified Selling Experience for Agents with iPipeline

Illustrations Integrator and e-App Implementations Streamline and Accelerate Sales Process

EXTON, PA (November 19, 2019) – iPipeline® – a leading provider of cloud-based software solutions for the life insurance and financial services industry – today announced WoodmenLife has implemented iPipeline’s Illustration Integrator® with iGO® e-App to provide its sales representatives with a unified selling experience.

iPipeline’s Illustration Integrator allows WoodmenLife’s reps to enjoy an automated selling experience by re-using external calculations to generate an illustration PDF, which is sent directly to iGO e-App for agent use. WoodmenLife is also using the disconnected option to improve rep mobility and support the selling process in the field. Address and bank validation options help to achieve a high rate of applications in Good Order.

“The ability to leverage existing illustration investments offers new efficiencies to carriers and their agents. In this instance, via WoodmenLife’s Web services, we accessed their existing illustration system and used resident data to generate an illustration PDF for integration with iGO e-App,” said Larry Berran, CEO, iPipeline. “Given the persistently low interest rates, carriers are seeking to lower costs, improve agent productivity, and grow. The combination of Illustration Integrator with our e-App represents just one example of how iPipeline is providing carriers with flexible solutions to reduce NIGO rates and the number of paper applications submitted by agents while optimizing their existing illustration investments.”

“After considering a range of options, our decision to implement iPipeline’s solution was based on their extensive industry experience and solid record of success in helping other carriers to achieve new efficiencies by reducing NIGOs to increase policy placements,” said Denise McCauley, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, WoodmenLife. “With the help of iPipeline, the recent launch of our My Choice IUL™ product was highly successful and is already producing positive returns. This project has allowed WoodmenLife to offer an IUL application experience that is 100% digital. iPipeline has delivered a level of flexibility and value, which is not easily matched in this marketplace.”
