Pompano Beach, Fl (PRWEB) March 26, 2013
Aplifi, a leading provider of life and annuity order management, client management and electronic document delivery solutions for the financial services and insurance market segments, announced today that it has contracted with Pacific Life to deliver its annuity contracts electronically via PolicyBox.
Pacific Life’s use of PolicyBox for electronic annuity contract delivery will support all annuity products, incorporate electronic signatures allowing for multiple signing parties, and provide storage of the contract record for later retrieval. Initially, the platform will be offered to a subset of broker-dealer clients with expansion to other distribution channels thereafter.
“Pacific Life has been a longtime supporter of electronic annuity applications. The extension to delivering contracts electronically was a natural fit”, said Cat VanWey, assistant vice president, National Accounts, Pacific Life. “We are excited to work with our broker-dealer clients to provide a better experience that is quicker and more streamlined than the current paper process. We see PolicyBox as a more efficient way to deliver contracts and another way for the industry to improve the handling of annuity business.”
“We are thrilled to have Pacific Life as our first annuity carrier on PolicyBox”, said Dan Smith, President and CEO, Aplifi. “Pacific Life has always embraced technology to provide better field support and this recent move upholds this philosophy of unwavering commitment. Adding PolicyBox to AFFIRM for Annuities helps complete the loop.”
