American Family Life Insurance Co. now is in production with FAST Insurance Components for new business processing and policy administration, according to FAST. The implementation was completed in eight months, leverages FAST’s services-oriented architecture and real-time integration and enabled the launch of a new life insurance product, FAST said.
