Life Insurance Software in a Nutshell

Life insurance software streamlines the entire life insurance cycle, from application processing and underwriting to policy issuance and claim payouts. Such systems can also cover loan management and investment management functions to facilitate operations with the policyholders’ funds.

Custom life insurance software enables carriers to automate specialized workflows of any complexity, including innovative ones like short-term life insurance and pay-as-you-live life insurance.

Often, insurers also go for custom systems to benefit from:

  • AI-supported underwriting and claim processing.
  • Advanced data protection and software compliance with the local standards.
  • Easy software evolution to support sustainable business growth.
  • Seamless integration with legacy tools or third-party systems.
  • Necessary integrations for life insurance software: CRM, accounting software, payment gateways, customer interaction channels, third-party data sources (internal systems of local medical information bureaus, social security administration, police administration, etc.; social media; policyholders’ smart wearables).
  • Implementation time: 9–18+ months for a custom life insurance system.
  • Development costs: $200,000–$1,500,000+, depending on solution complexity. Use our free calculator to estimate the cost for your case.
  • A payback period: <12 months.
