Overland Park, KS; Toronto, ON; Brenham, TX, March 31, 2021 –Following the July 2020 announcement of Germania Life Insurance Company (GLIC) selecting illustrate inc to lead the digital transformation of their life insurance business, both parties are excited to announce that in January 2021, the system went live!

The new OPUS platform transforms GLIC’s day-to-day processes from mainly paper-based, to a fully digital workflow including quoting, illustrations, instant report generation, eApps, eSignature, and more.  Covering their entire Life Insurance product line, the platform has been fully integrated with other 3rd party systems to automate the process of collecting and processing additional information required to finalize and issue a policy.

Germania Agents now have access to a powerful tool set to significantly streamline the sales process and enhance the overall User/Customer experience. Consequently, GLIC has already begun realizing tremendous efficiencies through exponential improvements in speed and quality.  

“The OPUS system has provided a much more streamlined and efficient process for our agents to quote and bind business through Germania Life,” Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Min Choi said. “Our team has already received positive feedback and testimonials from our agency partners as they become familiar with the new platform.”

“A project of this magnitude required full and transparent collaboration between the Germania Life and illustrate inc teams, something that was established virtually immediately,” says Lyndon Edwards, President of illustrate inc. “There were many moving parts to consider, including the involvement and integration of numerous 3rd party partners. We are very proud to have been able to provide Germania Life with such a powerful platform to help them transform their Life Insurance business.”

A Phase II Direct to Consumer (D2C) solution is currently in the works and includes a powerful new quoting and application workflow for a simplified application and underwriting process.
