Fiserv Receives “Positive” Rating for Policy STAR® System in Leading Analyst Firm’s MarketScope Report

Brookfield, Wis. - 18 March 2007

Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV) , a leading provider of information management systems and services, today announced its “Positive” rating in Gartner’s MarketScope for North American Property and Casualty Insurance for Policy Administration Systems, 2007 for the Fiserv Policy STAR® system.

Fiserv was one of five policy administration system suppliers evaluated by Gartner in the report for market understanding, product strategy, system capabilities, overall viability and customer experience. In the report, Gartner states insurers that avoid dealing with aging policy administration systems will not be able to adapt quickly to business changes or build and deliver products and services quickly, accurately and cost-effectively.

The Java-based Policy STAR solution by Fiserv is a single system supporting 17 personal and commercial lines of business and providing insurance carriers efficient, flexible policy administration. The system can be configured to support a variety of products without technicians, which enables insurers to quickly deliver new products to market. System users have online, real-time capability for quote and policy processing functions. Policy STAR features an open architecture, which allows integration with existing systems.

“We are pleased to receive this rating as a supplier of an advanced policy administration system that assists insurers in conducting business effectively on a daily basis,” said Gary Sherne, president of P&C Systems Solutions for Fiserv Insurance. “Fiserv is committed to enhancing Policy STAR and will concentrate on capabilities that will help move us into a ‘Strong Positive’ rating in the future.”
