Ohio National Selects Accenture Life Insurance & Annuity Platform to Accelerate Product Introduction and Enable Business Growth

NEW YORK; July 28, 2015 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been selected by Ohio National Financial Services (Ohio National), a provider of individual life insurance, annuities, retirement plans and disability income insurance to modernize their new individual life business, underwriting and policy administration capabilities. Ohio National will implement the Accenture Life Insurance & Annuity Platform (ALIP) to help get new products to market faster and more efficiently, allowing the company to respond quickly to marketplace needs.

“Ohio National has enjoyed more than a quarter century of unprecedented individual life insurance sales growth. We do not take this success for granted,” said Richard J. Bodner, ACS, CIOP, Senior Vice President, Insurance Operations. “As we continue to grow, we need a platform that will help us increase our product development capabilities, assist us as we move into new lines of business and increase our overall speed to market.

“We are consolidating multiple legacy systems onto ALIP. We are leveraging the solution’s advanced technology, flexible product and business configuration capabilities to build a solid platform. We’re excited to capture new market opportunities and bring them to our nationwide network of distribution partners so they can better serve our policyholders,” Bodner added.

ALIP’s configurable approach drives faster product deployments by enabling insurers to build and modify products and business processes and create new business rules using pre-defined conditions and actions. Ohio National will also be using the Accenture Actuarial Calculation Engine to help quickly and easily construct the new mathematical, financial, and actuarial calculations that are required to support life and annuity products, improving flexibility in product development and testing.

“We are pleased that Ohio National has chosen ALIP as the foundation of its policy system transformation,” said Shay Alon, global managing director, for Accenture’s Life and Annuity software. “As a result of our continued investments in ALIP, and our deep insurance domain expertise, we are very well positioned to help Ohio National achieve its goals and we are delighted to be part of their life and annuity overall growth strategy.”

ALIP, used by leading insurers worldwide, is a robust, configurable and scalable solution that offers life insurance and annuity carriers of all sizes solutions for product development, new business, underwriting, policy administration and payout. It is available as an integrated suite of software with modules that can be implemented individually or as part of a broader migration strategy.
