National Western Life Selects Equisoft to Accelerate its Growth Strategy

Philadelphia, November 18, 2019 - Equisoft, a leading global provider of digital business solutions for the insurance and wealth industries, announced today that it has been selected by National Western Life Insurance Company to replace its core legacy policy administration system to support its digital growth initiatives.

As part of this modernization project, Equisoft will implement and provide cloud services for the Oracle Insurance Policy Administration platform. This multi-year engagement will also involve a major data migration of National Western Life's existing life and annuity policies from their existing legacy platforms.

"Implementing a new core policy administration platform is a key component of our modernization efforts and growth initiative," said Greg Owen, SVP & CIO at National Western Life. "The flexibility of a modern, configurable and scalable solution such as the Oracle platform certainly impressed us and the depth of experience that Equisoft brings to a project was also key in helping us make our decision."

"We are excited to have National Western Life as a client. They are clearly committed to transforming their business into a digital model," added Mark DePhillips, Equisoft's Senior Vice President, USA. "We look forward to working with their team to deliver a successful project and ensure that they achieve their goals."
