iPipeline Platform to Take on New Dimension with Sean Fallon as VP, SSG Digital Platform & Policy Administration

Low Code, User Configurable Next-Gen Digital Platform to Offer a Connected Highway for iPipeline Products and Customer’s Existing Systems

EXTON, PA (August 19, 2020) – iPipeline®, a leading provider of cloud-based software solutions for the life insurance and financial services industry, today announced the appointment of Sean Fallon to the position of Vice President, SSG Digital® Platform and Policy Administration. Fallon comes to iPipeline from CNO Financial Group, where he served as Vice President, Front Office Application Development, and Chief Technology Officer. In this new role at iPipeline, he will advance the SSG Digital Platform with an event driven architecture that will enable user configurable messaging, shared product configuration, and the integration of iPipeline and customer systems. The SSG Digital platform will power our new Policy Administration offering PAS+®, taking digital access to the next level.

“Next-gen platforms will play a key role in connecting insurers to the products and services their consumers need. These platforms need to be more user configurable, low code, and open to a variety of data sets and home-grown platforms. We are recruiting top industry talent to take our SSG Digital Platform, PAS+, and other core products to the next stage,” said Larry Berran, CEO, iPipeline. “Sean brings a track record of success with cross-functional teams and an extensive knowledge of enterprise architecture in the life insurance industry. In this new role, he will add a new dimension to the platform through innovation and by executing strategy for our PAS+ initiatives in the North American marketplace.”

“The life insurance industry’s digital workforce requires a level of self-maintenance to accelerate the new pace of business. This means we need to deliver a more low code, customer-configurable platform with an open architecture to accommodate different data sets from home-grown systems and non-iPipeline products used across the enterprise,” said Sean Fallon, VP, SSG Digital Platform and Policy Administration. “The next leap in PAS+ technology will likely leverage artificial intelligence and self-learning predictive systems, so we are already at work exploring this avenue. Business continuity is top of mind in the COVID-19 reality, and we are determined to enable our clients to optimize their digital investments with iPipeline by taking them into the future.”

“Legacy platforms are not device agnostic, do not effectively scale, and fall short of supporting regulatory laws and rapid changes in the marketplace. These limitations stem from old ‘siloed’ technologies, which can negatively impact success and profitability,” said Larry Berran, CEO, iPipeline. “Conventus Now wants to bring the benefits of digital transformation to their own organizations and fraternal insurers, and they want to reduce the time to market for new products and better service the financial needs of member families. We are excited to collaborate with Conventus Now on this extensive end-to-end platform implementation.”

“Conventus Now is focused on modernizing new business and in-force operations for our fraternal insurers with next-generation technologies that lower the cost of customer acquisition and better service the needs of our members. iPipeline’s industry leadership and record of success emerged as the key factors influencing our decision to move forward with the platform,” said Jeff Piotrowski, Senior Vice President, Information Technology and Insurance Services, Catholic Financial Life. “The addition of next-gen PAS to the platform has further extended iPipeline’s value proposition. Their PAS has had a highly positive impact on how insurers work and service the needs of customers in the UK, and we see it having the same positive impact for us here. The comprehensive platform will substantially lower our cost of ownership, open new selling channels, and streamline how we service the needs of our members.”

“The American Fraternal Alliance is a strong advocate of implementing technology innovations to improve business processes for today’s fraternal insurers. The path to the future lies in simplifying and streamlining how we all work to the benefit of our member families,” said Joseph Annotti, President and CEO, American Fraternal Alliance. “Advanced technologies have the power to drastically improve our effectiveness as a fraternal alliance. iPipeline’s SSG Digital Platform for Conventus Now will serve as a catalyst for positive change and drive digital transformation within our industry.”
