CNA Chooses Camilion's Product Development Solution - ProductAuthority(TM)



    "Pure" Product Configurator Will Enable CNA to Streamline Product
    Development Processes, Reduce Costs and Increase Capacity

    TORONTO, June 19 /CNW/ - Camilion Solutions, a leading provider of
insurance Product Development Solutions and Policy Administration Systems,
today announced that CNA, the seventh largest commercial insurance writer in
the United States, has chosen ProductAuthority(TM) as the product development
solution for their specialty lines business. CNA will use ProductAuthority as
a faster alternative to building a solution in-house, to streamline their
product development processes, increase their product capacity and reduce
costs.
    "The CNA team are visionaries when it comes to product development and
recognize the need to make 'true' product management a core competency," said
Ross Orrett, Camilion's President and CEO. "Our powerful solution will be
instrumental in helping them to meet their strategic growth objectives and we
look forward to continuing to work with them to extend ProductAuthority's
product management functionality."

    About ProductAuthority

    Built to capitalize on a Services Oriented Architecture (SOA),
ProductAuthority fundamentally changes the way insurers develop and implement
products by completely separating product from process. A "pure" product
configurator, ProductAuthority creates agility by externalizing all product
data and rules from multiple, hard-coded operational systems into a central
repository, where qualified business users can build and modify their own
products. These reusable product definitions include all important product
information -eligibility, packaging, underwriting rules and forms management -
not just pricing or calculations. The integration of product definitions with
important product-aware legacy applications, like Policy Administration
Systems, is simplified by using Web Services. ProductAuthority also
incorporates a product manager's Workbench to automate product development
processes and test products prior to integration; a Product Catalog that gives
all product stakeholders access to product features, rules and status; and a
Publisher that generates full product specifications directly from the
repository.
