Sapiens expands its partner ecosystem with FRISS, an automated fraud detection and risk assessment leader
Holon, Israel – October 2, 2019 – Sapiens International Corporation, (NASDAQ and TASE: SPNS), a leading global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, today announced it has expanded its growing ecosystem by partnering with FRISS, a market leader in AI-powered fraud and risk solutions for the property & casualty (P&C) insurance industry. This partnership is part of Sapiens’ strategy to help its customers better mitigate risk and reduce fraud, improve the customer journey for low risk policies and claims, and make innovative insurtech solutions easily available to its customers.
Powered by a unique combination of out-of-the-box risk and fraud indicators, and artificial intelligence, FRISS’ solutions analyze policy applications, renewals, quotations and claims for high risks, fraud and compliance, to drive profitable growth. FRISS’ automated risk assessment allows carriers to improve their customer experience by speeding up the onboarding process and eliminating friction during claims payments. Suspicious cases can be investigated immediately, and insurers benefit from actionable insights. FRISS supports workers’ compensation and other lines of business where insurers are frequently taken advantage of.
FRISS will be seamlessly integrated into Sapiens P&C solutions to support the entire policy/claim lifecycle and empower staff to make the best decisions during quotation, claims handling and investigations. First focus will be to complete the seamless integration of the claims solution, followed by workers’ compensation and underwriting.
“Fraud has a profound, negative impact on the insurance industry, with about ten percent of incurred losses paying for illegitimate claims,” said Jeroen Morrenhof, co-founder and CEO of FRISS. “Our goal is to make insurance more honest. This is achieved not only by fighting fraud effectively, but also by preventing fraudsters from entering a carriers’ book of business and making sure that honest customers get the ultimate customer experience. Partnering with Sapiens was a natural decision for us, as it will enable us to shape the future of honest insurance.”
“Sapiens continues to work diligently to expand our partner ecosystem, so that our customers benefit from the latest innovations,” said Roni Al-Dor, Sapiens president and CEO. “Fraud and risk mitigation are crucial issues for insurers and this partnership will help them increase their profit margins by staying one step ahead of potential fraudsters.”
