Sapiens’ (SPNS) Increasing Associate Base Strengthens Prospect

Sapiens International SPNS is riding on an expanding partner base and strong portfolio, which are helping it win market share in the insurtech domain. The software solution provider for the insurance industry recently expanded its network in North America with CGI, ForMotiv, Hi Marley, ODG by MCG, and Opterrix as partners.

The expanded partner base will help Sapiens provide more robust solutions and services suitable to address the emerging needs of insurance providers. The ongoing digitalization in the sector has increased the demand for Sapiens’ solutions like ReinsurancePro and Intelligence.

The partnership with CGI enhances Sapiens’ ability to offer end-to-end digital services, which will help its insurance customers rapidly progress in their digital transformation journey. ForMotive’s real-time machine-learning models, which capture and analyze a huge amount of data-related digital behavior, will help provide personalized user experiences.

Meanwhile, Hi Marley helps carriers succeed with its SMS-powered collaboration platform customized for insurance providers. ODG by MCG offers evidence-based guidelines and technology solutions, which support payers, providers and employers in the insurance sector. Opterrix solutions provide insight into risk-associated exposure to certain geography-related climate-change and weather.

Expanding Market Penetration to Aid Top-Line Growth

Sapiens’ expanding partner base will not only smoothen its customers’ digital journey but also reduce operational costs. The partnerships are also expanding Sapiens’ international footprint.
