COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Nov. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Insurance Technologies, LLC, a provider of sales and regulatory automation solutions for the insurance and financial services industries, announced today the integration between FireLight®, and LexisNexis® InstantID® and LexisNexis® InstantID Q&A. The integration with industry leading LexisNexis Risk Solutions identity management products offers additional 3rd party heightened identity authentication capabilities within FireLight, supporting diverse compliance and sales requirements.
This integration enables the implementation of an additional secure, knowledge-based client verification process prior to entering the signing ceremony for both the FireLight Sign Now and Sign Later experiences. This added capability allows FireLight insurance clients who also utilize LexisNexis InstantID and LexisNexis Instant ID Q&A, to create an enhanced and reinforced sales process for advisors and their clients.
“Our life insurance customers are looking for new ways to improve the experience for their consumers as well as their sales agent channels while satisfying customer identification program (CIP) regulations and providing robust security for the information flow,” said Elliott Wallace, vice president and general manager, life insurance, LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “Our identity management solutions leverage superior linking technology that help life insurers accelerate customer acquisition and mitigate risk.”
FireLight offers a streamlined implementation that is configurable with LexisNexis Risk Solutions based on signer type or additional data elements within the application package. LexisNexis identity management solutions help to provide robust identity coverage that help increase verification rates and support informed decisions. Within FireLight, identity verification results are attached to the e-application package audit trail, keeping authentication data confidential. Additional review queues can be triggered based on returned identity verification results to streamline unique review and due diligence processes across diverse products.
“To combat the risk of fraud especially with higher risk transactions, for example, withdrawal transactions, high premiums and consumer initiated transactions, heightened authentication strategies are necessary,” said Katherine Dease, vice president of product management, Insurance Technologies. “To support both high and low risk transactions, we enable clients to leverage rules within FireLight to assign authentication levels based on the risk associated with each transaction. This flexibility has been key to helping our clients solve their specific compliance requirements.”
