CINCINNATI, Ohio — December 9, 2014 — Cincom Systems, a worldwide software provider, is pleased to announce that National Guardian Life Insurance Company, one of America’s most successful independent mutual life insurance companies, has chosen Cincom Eloquence® as its new customer communications solution to power its policyholder communications across the entire life insurance lifecycle, including policy packets, statements and letter correspondence.
“In order to keep pace with our rapid growth and also meet the ever-changing needs of our policyholders, it was clear that the time had come to replace our aging iStream/Calligo-based document generation application with a new, modern customer communications solution,” commented Gary Means, vice president, director of information services for National Guardian Life (NGL). “After careful evaluation of numerous solutions in the market, we chose Cincom based on their industry expertise and willingness to learn our business processes while providing the best value across the entire policyholder communications lifecycle from issue documents to customer service correspondence.”
Key considerations for NGL’s selection of Cincom Eloquence included its ease of integration into legacy infrastructures and ease of use in the development of complex policies in high-volume production environments as well as the generation of error-free, personalized correspondence in real time. In addition, NGL anticipates a rapid deployment that includes migrating existing templates from the iStream/Calligo repository to Cincom Eloquence as well as integration with their legacy policy administration application, StoneRiver’s ID3, which will accelerate template development, testing and approval.
“Unlike other solution providers who offered a wholesale conversion of our existing template library via simplistic automated tools, we preferred Cincom’s migration methodology of actually identifying and rationalizing which entities and templates will be earmarked for conversion before any work begins,” said Means. “This approach allows us to shed redundant templates and entities from our library and take full advantage of Eloquence’s dynamic template design capabilities like universal components, rules logic and variations to deliver better communications, faster. And, their experience in migrating other clients from iStream/Calligo to Eloquence was also a major plus.”
“Helping our clients exceed their customers’ expectations through better communications is our only focus,” commented Lori Gelter, program director for Cincom’s Document Solutions team. “We are honored that NGL has selected Cincom Eloquence to power their customer communications now and in the future.”
