EDS SOLCORP Moves Ahead with INGENIUM 7.1



    New release aimed at improving regulatory compliance and connectivity

    TORONTO, Dec. 18 /CNW/ -- EDS today announced the release of INGENIUM
v7.1, an update to its Web services-enabled policy administration system, now
with a full complement of regulatory compliance tools for non-traditional life
insurance products and better than ever connectivity to the field through
ACORD TXLife transactions.
    INGENIUM is a robust and flexible solution, providing full-function
processing for an extensive range of life and investment offerings. Through
its PathFinder browser interface, INGENIUM enables dynamic business activity
monitoring, providing real opportunities for business process improvement and
rapid return on investment. INGENIUM integrates seamlessly with standard
third-party solutions including customer service Web portals and other mid-
and front-office tools.
    "In this release, we were very focused on enhancing INGENIUM's compliance
and connectivity functions," stated Roger Paehr, product manager, Policy
Administration Systems, EDS SOLCORP. "This is just part of our multi-year plan
for INGENIUM."
    Some of the new and enhanced capabilities offered by INGENIUM v7.1
include:

    
    -- Tax history for all jurisdictions, providing greater financial
       integrity and better insight into the impact that policy activities
       (changes, payments, withdrawals, etc.) have on a policy's tax position
    -- Cash Value Accumulation Test (CVAT) processing, in addition to the
       already supported death benefit corridor concept, provides insurers
       with a choice as to which method to use for Universal Life contracts
    -- Review of distributions in the two years prior to a policy achieving
       MEC status in order to treat them as MEC distributions, thereby
       decreasing the manual workload associated with this process
    -- CITS (Canadian Insurance Transaction Standardization) compliance for
       both In-force and Pending feeds, allowing for greater connectivity
       through industry agreed usage of ACORD TXLife transactions.
    -- Increased rate structure flexibility allowing greater variation in
       rates
    

    These enhancements to an already feature-rich solution mean that as
organizations grow, expanding their products, client base and geographies,
INGENIUM will continue to be a part of that growth for the long-term,
providing cross-platform versions to suit a variety of computing environments,
including .NET and UNIX.
    "We continue to explore new options for improving INGENIUM's flexibility
and functionality to ensure our clients have the best tools possible for
effectively managing and growing their businesses," Paehr added. "INGENIUM is
recognized for its superior scalability, and we're committed to securing its
position as a powerhouse in the policy administration system market."
