Seven carriers were honored at CSC’s Connect for Life and Annuity conference in New Orleans this week. The third annual Connect for Life and Annuity Awards recognize CSC clients for exceptional results achieved in policy administration, information technology, customer experience and social networking, and for setting outstanding examples in the area of regulatory compliance leadership.

John Hancock Financial Services received the overall Industry Leadership Award for upgrading its existing VANTAGE-ONE and Distribution Support System mainframe environments to a new zLinux distributed platform for a lower total cost of ownership. John Hancock expects the move to lower its operating costs and optimize its platform's efficiency and effectiveness.

Other 2012 winners, nominated and selected by CSC's North American client community, are:

Pacific Life Insurance Company. For the second consecutive year, Pacific Life won the Leadership in Policy Administration Award. This year the carrier was recognized for an upgrade of CyberLife completed with staffing support from CSC's managed services, setting a standard for timely software upgrades.
