Apr 30, 2003 | Conteúdos Em Ingles

Fineos Corporation, an Irish provider of banking and insurance software, has just announced the general release of Fineos 4.0, its line-of-business software suite of front and back office solutions designed to optimise the sales, servicing and product management processes of financial services organisations. Fineos 4.0 arranges the company’s complete product portfolio into six industry-specific pre-packaged solutions for customer, case, contract and work management.

The six solutions include Fineos Life, Fineos Pensions, Fineos Insure, Fineos Banking, Fineos Lending and, specially packaged for the North American insurance industry, Fineos Employee Benefits . Each vertical solution area will be rolled out in a phased approach over the coming months.

“The market has finally realised again that software solutions should be developed and delivered to suit specific vertical lines of business. There has been a move away from trying to make generic industry products fit specific vertical businesses by over customisation. The real benefit of the Fineos 4.0 product suite is that it enables clients to avail of specific front and back office functionality specifically designed and tailored for their line of business,” said Michael Kelly, CEO, Fineos.

With Fineos 4.0, each line-of-business area is divided into separate front and back office component software suites that can be deployed individually or combined together as a complete enterprise-wide solution.

Fineos Front Office is the company’s suite of integrated application modules and internet portals that deliver enterprise-wide customer relationship management (CRM) and straight through processing (STP). Version 4.0 enhancements in Front Office functionality provides for greater workflow automation, process engineering, and case management.

Version 4 addresses 360-degree sales lead management, distribution and follow-up; complete support for renewals and new business for group and individual business; automated underwriting decision-making and full-cycle support for claims, redemptions and maturities.

Fineos Back Office integrates full-lifecycle contract management applications. Release 4.0 includes a number of enhancements to Fineos Life, particularly the contract administration functionality, as well as the release of the company’s Intelligent Event Engine for the delivery of event-based business transaction processing for each of its lines of business.

The company’s complete range of portals can be deployed with or without a commercial portal server such as IBM Websphere Portal Server.
