Accenture earns top honors for Breadth of Functionality and Depth of Service for its life insurance and annuity platform

NEW YORK; Jan. 28, 2020 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has received two XCelent awards for its life insurance and annuity platform in a recent report from research and advisory firm Celent.

In the report, “North American Policy Administration Systems ABCD Vendor View,” Celent recognized the Accenture Life Insurance and Annuity Platform (ALIP) as the top performer among 20 life and annuity policy administration systems in the “Breadth of Functionality” and “Depth of Service” categories.

“The process Celent follows is quite rigorous,” said Karen Monks, director of Celent’s Knowledge management center and report co-author. “It is very much like a system selection process, and to receive awards across two of our four metrics is a compliment to Accenture and their product.”

According to a client quoted in the report, Accenture “consistently demonstrates a long-term perspective and investment in keeping their platform relevant and evolving to meet needs and stay state-of-the-art.”

The report also highlights ALIP’s growing customer base and production implementations along with its expanding partner relationships.

“We are honored to be recognized for our continued leadership in moving the life and annuity industry forward with advanced technology, people and processes,” said Shay Alon, who leads Accenture’s Life and Annuity Products and Platforms business. “We work closely with our clients to ensure that ALIP provides the functionality they need, and we believe the awards further validate our strategic and forward-thinking approach to policy administration and implementation services on our platform.”
