Instant access to underwriting decisions makes selling easier for final expense market

ALEXANDRIA, Va.--()--5Star Life Insurance Company (5Star Life) has selected Apptical Corp. as vendor of choice for tele-underwriting services for its final expense product, Silver Premier Choice.

Apptical was selected as the vendor for tele-underwriting services from a number of qualified vendors. Apptical’s cutting edge underwriting technology platforms, SoundDecisions and PURE, will provide 5Star Life with a cost efficient and effective means to quickly and accurately underwrite Silver Premier Choice products providing true point of sale decision-making capability while giving agents access to an instant underwriting decision while in a customer’s home.

“Apptical’s cutting edge capabilities as a premier provider of tele-underwriting services is far superior to anything we’ve seen in the market,” said John Sachs, Vice President of Business Insurance Markets. “With this system in place, agents will benefit by getting true point of sale underwriting decision capability with added features such as the ability to handle dual purpose drugs, reflexive questioning, identity validation, as well as bank account verification. 5Star Life benefits by not only providing our agents with fast and efficient point of sale underwriting, but by improving the quality of the interview experience for both the agent and the customer, improving up-front underwriting, and improving long term mortality experience on new business."
