Toronto, ON - 26 August 2009

Camilion Solutions, a provider of insurance product development solutions and modern P&C policy administration systems that create product agility, and Pitney Bowes Business Insight, the leading global provider of location and communication intelligence solutions, today announced that they are collaborating to provide Pitney Bowes Business Insight's best-in-class location intelligence functionality with Camilion's industry-leading policy administration system Authority Suite(R).

Authority Suite is a fully functional modern P&C policy administration system for all lines of business that provides a rich set of policy transactions and enables "true" speed to market. It supports the entire policy administration lifecycle, including application data capture, qualification, rating, quote management, bind and issuance, and all required policy transactions. Powered by ProductAuthority(R), the market's only "true" insurance product configurator, Authority Suite separates product from process by externalizing and storing all product data and rules from legacy operational systems into a centralized product repository where products can be configured and modified easily.

Pitney Bowes Business Insight's location intelligence solutions put the power of visual mapping into the hands of Authority Suite customers. With location intelligence, insurers are able to garner new insights into the marketplace, minimize risk and improve strategic decision-making capabilities. Pitney Bowes Business Insight's location intelligence solutions help insurers to recognize coverage opportunities based on location, establish proximity to emergency services, assign the appropriate Premium Tax, validate and normalize customer information such as name and address, and match and normalize customer information against existing customer records.
