"We are always looking for new solutions for our life insurance carrier clients. Detecting identity fraud early in the process with LexisNexis® InstantID® alongside our teleunderwriting services is a game-changer for our clients," said Peggy Bartraw, Director of Operations at Apptical Corp. "As a result, we're able to help our clients obtain more reliable answers to their critical insurance risk calculations and questions."

By using Apptical Corp's SoundDecisions and LexisNexis® InstantID® to validate the proposed insured's identity during the telephone interview process, carriers can better verify that a person applying for life insurance is providing the correct information and get instantly alerted to indicators of potential fraud.  This saves time, boosts efficiency and increases confidence in the outcome of their issued policies.  In today's world, it is more important than ever to verify that personal identifying data is accurate when ordering underwriting requirements.

"LexisNexis and Apptical make it easier for life insurers to proactively prevent fraud from the beginning of the relationship, while maintaining a good customer experience," said Elliott Wallace, Vice President and General Manager, Life Insurance, LexisNexis.

"Underwriting professionals and insurance carriers are more strapped for time, and in need of trustworthy efficiency solutions more than ever before," said Bartraw, "and LexisNexis® InstantID®,  can help give busy underwriting departments peace of mind by embedding the information and validation tools they need directly within the context of their workflow."
