October 22, 2009
Montreal, QC, October 23, 2009 - Silanis Technology, the leader in electronic signature process management, today announced that itsApproveIt Web Server solution has been validated for use as part of the IBM Insurance Process Acceleration Framework. Insurance companies can now add electronic signature process management to their customer acquisition and retention strategies with the assurance that ApproveIt Web Server fully leverages IBM software products – an important criterion for speeding implementation and reducing costs and risks. “2008 saw a substantial rise in the number ofP&C and life insurance carriers adopting electronic signatures to eliminate the inefficiencies of paper from their customer acquisition processes,” said Tommy Petrogiannis, President and Co-Founder of Silanis Technology. “Insurers recognize that straight-through processing is essential for closing new business quickly and providing customers with superior service in an increasingly competitive, costly and risk-averse industry.” ApproveIt Web Server

 addresses these challenges while providing a single, enterprise platform solution that scales across all channels and lines-of-business. As a next-generation, e-signature process management solution, ApproveIt Web Server goes beyond simple e-signing to bring together all of the data, documents, people, activities, events, notifications, systems and services needed to execute e-transactions from start to finish in accordance with business, legal and regulatory requirements. The solution manages the transaction process electronically, eliminating any gaps in the process, to ensure that the business transaction is executed in compliance with an insurer’s internal business controls and legal and regulatory requirements, while recording the entire transaction to provide stronger legal evidence than is possible with paper. “Insurers will not only strengthen their legal and compliance position, they’ll be better prepared for the coming new age of regulatory reform which promises to impose more stringent requirements and demand more transparency into processes than ever before,” added Petrogiannis. As a fully J2EE, SOA based solution, ApproveIt Web Server runs on the IBM WebSphere Application Server, leverages DB2 for storage, and  interfaces with WebSphere Portal Server to manage the signing ceremony. It also can leverage Lotus Forms in both client and server-based configurations and store those documents in a IBM ECM Filenet solution.
