Companies Team to Deliver Straight-through Document Processing Solutions for Property and Casualty Insurers

5 December 2006

Exstream Software, Inc., provider of Dialogue, industry-leading software for enterprise document personalisation, today announced a co-marketing partnership with Fiserv Insurance Solutions, a unit of Fiserv Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV) and provider of software and outsourcing solutions for the insurance industry. The agreement aligns the two companies’ efforts to provide document management solutions that streamline the entire document creation and delivery process for property and casualty insurers, resulting in faster time to market for critical communications, improved customer service, and significantly reduced production costs.

Exstream’s Dialogue software provides a single platform for enterprises to design, manage, and deliver fully personalised business communications of all types for high-volume, on-demand and interactive delivery. Integrating Dialogue with Fiserv’s three component-based property-casualty core processing systems—Policy STAR®, Claims Workstation and Advanced Billing—allows insurers to streamline policy administration and deliver higher quality, fully personalised and compliant billing, claims and statutory reporting documents.

“This partnership unites the power of Exstream’s Dialogue software with the capability to achieve operational excellence using our core systems,” said Gary Sherne, president of Property & Casualty Solutions for Fiserv. “Dialogue’s architecture and automated capabilities for insurers complement Fiserv's web-based Policy STAR, Claims Workstation, and Advanced

Billing solutions. Together, our joint solution allows companies to more effectively manage the customer experience from quoting and policy issuance, through ongoing customer service.”

“We are excited about this agreement as it allows our two organisations to work side-by-side to provide superior document technology solutions for property and casualty insurers,” said Michael Charest, vice president of insurance solutions at Exstream. “The combination of Exstream’s market-leading Dialogue enterprise personalisation solution and Fiserv’s property-casualty core processing systems gives insurers a total solution for streamlining policy administration processes and improving the overall customer experience.”
