U.K.-based edge IPK  and Phoenix-based Discoverture Solutions, have partnered to combine and leverage the companies’ respective core competencies to offer property/casualty insurers a built-to-fit presentation layer. The companies say Discoverture’s expertise in insurance systems design and delivery combined with edge IPK’s edgeConnect open presentation platform (OPP) offers insurers a fresh approach and a cost-effective, quick-to-implement way to extend the life of legacy applications.

"Each day more insurers recognize the competitive value of a high-quality user experience, even when trying to extend the life of an existing legacy environment, and with that new awareness comes an increased focus on the presentation layer and the underlying architecture,” says Steve Addair, president of Discoverture Solutions. “edge IPK’s edgeConnect offers insurers a highly-customized presentation layer to make all systems appear as one with an elegant user experience. Discoverture combines a thorough understanding of business processes with industry best practices to conceive and implement value-added technology solutions for clients, and we see a great fit with what edge IPK is bringing to the industry.”

First introduced in 2002 with version 4.5 announced earlier in 2009, edgeConnect OPP is designed to enable insurers and brokers to create, visualize and deploy customized Web applications supporting white labeling, multiple channels and internationalization. These web applications leverage existing legacy environments providing a cost effective, low-risk approach to meet the demands of a changing insurance market.
