Multicompany and Multicountry
Sapiens IDITSuite is designed from the ground up to support multicompany and country business operating models. Coupled with its multilingual processing and multicurrency accounting, IDITSuite gives the tools needed to be a true multinational company. Any language, including local dialects and an activation model with on-the-fly language transition capabilities are fully supported.
- Multibrand/multicompany – every brand company can view and manage its own products across the value chain’s steps. Access to business data and clients is completely segregated between different entities. Depending on parameter settings, cross usage of products is allowed between brand companies, but users of one brand company cannot view the data or clients of another brand company. Although financial transactions are kept separately, there is a unified accounts structure across brand companies. This functionality is essential for multinational companies that support multiple legal entities, and enables each entity to comply with different regulatory requirements. Each company can cater to different market segments and products.
- Multilingual – it is possible to change IDITSuite’s screen language on the fly for user convenience, including, for example, labels and values in drop-down list boxes. Every contact (insured person, agent, etc.) has a default language for communication. Furthermore, documents can be created in the contact’s default language and reproduced in any other language. Several languages are provided out of the box; adding languages is a simple task of uploading translations to the system.
- Multicurrency – IDITSuite has a single reporting (system) currency. Every transaction created is recorded in the transaction, policy and reporting currencies at the same time. Statistical reports can be generated for all currency types.
IDITSuite features a layered architecture that separates the common infrastructure from country-specific elements and customized features. Since IDITSuite’s components are independent of specific country/customization-based implementations, the time and effort required to deploy it in new geographies or environments is reduced dramatically. The solution's core functionality is international and not tied to any single language or regulatory sphere. It can be localized relatively easily to virtually any insurance, regulatory or geographic zone.
Compliance and Personal Data Protection
Sapiens IDITSuite provides the tools, level of data and security to support the latest regulatory requirements for GDPR, POPI, IDD and IFRS17. The solution’s roadmap process and user groups enable Sapiens to address regulatory changes prior to the deadlines and design solutions that meet our clients' needs.
In an increasingly data-driven world, protecting people’s privacy and preventing data breaches have become essential. As the volumes of data created, stored and shared increases, protecting personal data and complying with data-protection regulations are key objectives of insurance carriers. IDITSuite is a modern PAS that helps insurers to easily and fully comply with personal data-protection requirements.
Rapid Time to Market
Sapiens IDITSuite is a very flexible and versatile platform that enables insurance organizations to create, modify and launch insurance offerings rapidly and effectively, on a local or global scale. Following the methodology of design once and reuse, the solution’s powerful Product Factory, coupled with the business rules engine, provide a robust foundation for easy product configuration, market responsiveness, agility, and rapid time to market. Every product artefact that the users configure is retained as a single instance in a central product library and is available for reuse again and again.
