Sapiens enables one of South Africa’s top five banks to align with the latest, market-leading trends and to better serve its digitally empowered consumers
HOLON, Israel, Aug. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Sapiens International Corporation (NASDAQ: SPNS) (TASE: SPNS), a leading global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, today announced that one of South Africa’s top five financial institutions with nearly 10 million customers, has chosen Sapiens as their transformation partner.

Subsequent to successfully launching its fully digital insurance product for individuals to purchase cover for motor vehicle, household contents, all-risk and building cover, the financial institution decided to rethink its legacy core system. To bring the company up to date in terms of capabilities, a refresh was required. However, the financial institution had some concerns regarding data migration and implementation.

Sapiens will migrate the customer’s systems and data to the cloud, and Sapiens vast implementation experience will ensure the complex integration into the client’s extensive banking ecosystem.
