Dennis Pfiffner, VP Product Services, noted, “With over 70 carriers in production on our Life Products; we have learned a great deal by listening to our customers. Carriers are always looking for new and modern solutions, but they also want to be sure they are choosing a solution that can stand the test of time. We believe StoneRiver has been able to deliver on both counts with Life Portraits being a proven and well received product in the market, but with a new technology architecture that enables us to continue to expand and enhance to deliver the modern functionality and high quality user experience that carriers, distribution channels, and insurance buyers are expecting and demanding.”

Jim Woodward, SVP Life Carrier Solutions, also remarked, "We are excited about making Life Portraits generally available to the market today. But more importantly, we are happy to announce that we have closed 3 key deals on this new platform, with our first successfully into production illustrating annuities as of last week. This is validation that we have a real differentiator in the market."

Life Portraits is an insurance sales and marketing tool designed for use across multiple distribution channels. The three modules included with Life Portraits - needs analysis, sales illustrations, provide a full life, health, and annuity marketing suite with support from point-of-sale to application e-submission.
