It covers guideline definition, case management, decision support, and real-time monitoring of all business decisions and processe.

“Although underwriting has been traditionally a manual, labor intensive activity, it can be substantially automated by addressing the complete lifecycle,” said Tim Wallace, CEO, iPipeline. "Our goal is to take the complexity out of the underwriting tasks through automation while allowing each insurer to manage to their risks. The acquisition of Resonant will enable our customers to achieve greater operational efficiencies and speed-to-market advantages to fuel growth.”
